Window's installation problem!

Hello,
I'm back here in the forum with another trouble.
Recently due to my corrupted hard disk, I replaced my hard disk.
Its a brand new hard disk with no windows installed. So when i put my disk, made the BIOS to boot from cd/DVD and it started showing me, wwindows loading files, then I proceeded to select my language and clicked install now. I did a custom installation.
So I made 2 partitions, one is 465gb and other is 100mb system reserved partition.
I clicked the 465gb part it on and clicked "ok", it started the installation.
First, windows copying files completed 100%
Then windows expanding files 0%, it ain't increasing from there, it is stuck at 0% and never goes up. After I kept some minutes it showed me that.
I got an error code too, here it:-
Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the application. Error code: 0x80070017.
Also I have 2 windows DVDs and both are kinda scratched, many scratches.
I don't know what to do, and also shows bootmgr missing if I don't boot from the windows cd

If you make a copy of the dvd, it should be fine.

It`s a shame we can no longer say, just download the iso file and make a new dvd.

Your Windows 7 install dvd is bad, you need a new one.

Make a copy and it should be fine to install Windows.

What don`t you understand ?

Also, there is no need to make the 2 partitions ( if in fact that`s what YOU did ) windows will do that on it`s own.

Make one partition, 465gb and leave the install process to create the system reserved partition.

that may solve the error problem as addram says burn a copy of the install disc

I will buy another windows 7 CD, and come back to you guys if it ain't working too... But my friend who used the above DVDs I mentioned has used them to format PCs and he had kept them inside a supboard or something without a cover for 3 months, and those both dvds are scratched.
And also how to make one partition if thers already 2 partitions...
Any suspection on my sata + power cable which connects to the hard disk?
Not big pro with these computers... Do don't be angry if I keep asking same thing again and againbbecause I can't understand every time what is said. <
Thnx

Delete all the partitions down to un allocated space.

Did you even bother to read the tutorial I posted ?

Here it is again, step 7.

Clean Install Windows 7


You do not have to buy another disc, just make a copy.

It offers them, but only a retail key will work to download the iso file, which no one has even proven yet.
