Windows 7: Installation Failed - Error 0x08007000D

Installation Failed - Error 0x08007000D

Trying to install on an Emachines laptop. I get the following error:

Specs: 1.6ghz AMD Athlon XP-M, 512mb RAM, Integrated Graphics Card.

Also, I know for a FACT that the DVD works and is perfectly fine. I've used it on other machines before.

Check your disc - seems that it is not able to read it correctly - might want to burn at a lower speed and see if it helps.

Other causes of this are also Overclocking (I doubt that on an eMachine) and faulty hardware....

I doubt any of those but the latter. Disc is brand new, minimum burning speed, no overclocking.

I had major issues (and this particular *exact* issue) when I tried numerous times to install the stolen 6956 build - I could never get it to work. I have no issues with 6801 after I removed my OC, and same with 7000 - no issues after I removed my OC.

However, it could be your Optical drive slowly going bad - try burning it to disc on a *different* drive and seeing it is works....

Actually, to be honest, I tried mounting it on my USB Drive and it worked. However, I got to the part where it asks what HDD you want to install it on and it says that you can't format while you're using it.

So, is it possible for me to just put the .ISO on the USB Drive and then make my computer boot from the USB Drive?

New problem. I got to the part where I formatted my HDD, and then hit continue. As it was installing, it said it couldn't install the files. So, now I have a HDD with nothing on it... great.

Why is access denied?

Nevermind, I see. It's because I have to run as an Administrator.

Also, I'm going to create a bootable USB Flash/Jump Drive whenever the download finishes. I'll let you guys know how it goes if you'd like!

EDIT: Oh, wow. Sorry for the triple post. >_<
