Hello,
Make sure your install DVD is not scratched or full of finger prints. If you have another computer try using it to copy the DVD to USB. Some dvd players read dvd's better then others. If you need to, it is not illegal to download the software off the internet as long as you use the product key that came with your copy of the software when you install it. You could download the ISO from a torrent site and extract it to USB if you needed, with programs like MagicISO.

Troubleshooting error codes 0x80130701


this is the answer from a Microsoft engineer:
I would also suggest using a different DVD drive, or maybe copying the installation files to a USB stick (4gb or bigger) and performing a USB install. The error 0x80070017 translates to "CRC Error" which means that the files that are being copied from the disk are not making it to the hard drive with the same structure, meaning that the "original" files on the disk are being modified/changed/corrupted while being copied to the "destination" location on your hard drive during the install.
This usually means either a bad DVD, or a read error on the DVD drive.
The easiest thing is to make a USB drive to install Window s7 (and it's WAY faster than DVD too!)

I hope this helps. I suggest (if you have a back-up copy) to burn a new copy of your install DVD. The present one cannot be fully read by your drive. With the new copy it will work fine as long as your DVD Rom is in good order. The USB install depends on you having a good copy of the software to load on the memory stick anyway. I think that's it all covers eh ? Good Luck, Ray.
I too hope it helps

How to install vista from pendrive


Its very difficult to install windows vista if you are not having a DVD drive, Especially when you are planning to upgrade your windows xp system you would like to see how vista looks. So you need to install it and see. Requirements: USB pen drive 4GB or more
Windows vista DVD

Step 1: Download HP USB storage format tool from here and install on your computer.
Step 2: Once you finish installation, double click on HP USB storage format tool and format your pen drive in NTFS
For this, select NTFS from File system option and Check quick format option and click on start.

While doing the format the data stored on your Pen drive will be lost. You keep a back if needed. Press YES on the warning message

Once the format finished you will get a message with the details and Click
on OK

Now insert Windows vista DVD in to DVD Drive and go to command prompt.
For that go to start -> RUN and type CMD and press enter or OK

You will see the command prompt with black back ground
Now you need to change the directory to your DVD drive where you put the windows vista DVD.

For that type G: and press enter (here I am using G because in my system DVD drive letter is G. So you need to check your DVD drive letter and type accordingly)

So the directory will change to G:>
Now type cd boot and press enter
Now the interface will be like G:boot>
Then type bootsect.exe /nt60 h: (where h is the drive letter of your pen drive)
Now you will get a successful message like below

Now you can close the command prompt and copy all the contents from the windows vista DVD to the pen drive

It will start copying now

Once it’s finished, you need to restart your pc and access the bios of your system and make first boot device as USB pen drive.
That’s it, now you can see installation starts from the USB pen drive.

Also, run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, it will scan your system and provide a report telling you if your PC can run Windows 7 and if there are any known compatibility issues with your programs or hardware.

If this is a digital download of Windows 7, try burning again at the lowest speed possible or download another copy of the software and try downloading again.

I hope this helps.

Error: code0x80070017


When you install Windows 7 (or Vista) you may get the following message:
Error 0x80070017 Windows cannot copy files required for installation. These files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installtion are available, and restart the installation Error code: 0x80070017


raimund24_0.jpg
This can be displayed with error code 0x80070017 or error code 0x80070570 in Windows 7 or Vista

The cause is very simple and you can probably guess from the error code in the screenshot above. The cause is that Windows cannot verify the files.
Simple Solution
  • Burn or get a new copy of the disk (Burn at a slow Speed 2x and use a quality media like (Verbatim)
  • Or if you have a current Windows installation you can install from the hard drive or from a USB drive

HI GOOD EVENING I AM UNABLE TO COPY MY MICROSOFT OUTLOOK 2007 PST FILE TO EXTERNAL HARD DISK. AFTER STARTING COPY FEW MINUTES LATER I FACE THE FOLLOWING PROBLUM CANNOT COPY OUTLOOK:DATA ERROR(CYCLIC...


A "CRC" (Cyclic Redundancy Check) is caused by an disk-drive error.

When you write a "block' of data to your disk-drive, a CRC value is calculated, and is also written to the disk. When you try to read that "block" of data, the CRC value is also read from the disk,
and a new CRC is calculated from the data. If the "new" CRC does not match the "old" CRC, then you have a "check" condition -- either the data was not written correctly, or the data could not be read correctly.

Now, did the "check" message refer to the "source" of the copying operation (namely your 'C:' drive) , or the "target"(namely the external drive) ???

Try to copy the PST file to another file on your 'C:' drive.
If you do not see the "check", then it is the external disk-drive that has a problem.
If you do see the "check", then open Outlook, create a new folder,
and copy a group of messages into the new folder. If Outlook reports that one of the messages could not be copied, then the disk-space occupied by that message is faulty, and must be excluded.

I Wanted To Make a BOOT CD For Windows XP But The Problem is That I Have Windows Vista and i Dont Know What To Do So What Can i Do


How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media
  1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
  2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
  3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
  4. Download CDimage 2.52.
  5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
  6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command: cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso
    Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
  7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.
Visit here for illustrative guide on using CDImage GUI version to make the bootable DVD ISO.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg
Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK).
  1. Complete step 1 – 3 as above.
  2. In the command prompt window, run the following command: oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso
    A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
  3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.
Visit the guide to create Vista bootable DVD using vLite.
Note: For 64-bit Windows Vista, download etfsboot.com and put it into “\Vista\boot” folder. Or users using WAIK (WinPE), the etfsboot.com can be found at %Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\ folder. So simply replace -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com with -bC:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com when making 64-bit Vista DVD image.

Cyclic redundancy error


In simple terms, a CRC is bit of mathematics used to ensure that your data is OK when being transfered. It's a checking procedure that quickly identifies when data has been damaged. If you get this message, it means that the file being read by your PC or software is corrupted. However, it does not mean all the data is lost forever. When data is transfered, it is usually in small blocks and each block is given a CRC value. If something goes wrong with the data between the time it leaves the source and arrives at its destination, the CRC sent at the source will no longer match the one that is calculated when the data arrives - this is when the cyclic redundancy check error will appear,


All of the above is true, didnt write it myself copied it from a good friends post. It is probably the data itself that is corrupted. Doesnt mean the data is gone. Try running a disk defrag, if that doesnt work try copying it to a cd/dvd and see if you get the same error. If you dont, flash your bios. This should explain your problem, if it doesnt follow up with me, email address is kustom42 at gmail.com.

Cant install windows vista getting error message in installation


The only thing I can think of for an error of this kind would be faulty media. I would suggest getting ahold of another copy of the Windows Vista Install disc. Note that it matters not what Version the Install disc is, you have the Windows Key you need to use, it will install the correct version on its own.
