First of all
I got the compuer Acer aspire G7200 Predator "defender"
Link for spec: Acer Aspire Predator G7200 Ranger reviews, prices and deals - 4GB of Memory PC
Now where to begin...
I decided to install a fresh copy of windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, i boot up the cd that i just burned, Choose the language and region thingy, click next and then install.
This is where my first error came which is:
A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: if the windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."
I googled the problem and notice some got that error because of a bad burn so i decided to burn another one at slowest speed available. Still got the same problem. I then went and got my Windows 7 professional CD which is original and came with an older pc i got. Still the same problem. Even tried with original Vista CD at no avail.
I kept on troubleshooting and someone said that using an usb flash drive would help, so i thought why not.
I used the program "Windows 7 USB DVD download tool" that i got from microsofts website too burn the .iso to the usb stick. I plug the usb in and start the windows 7 installation. This time however i got one step futhur.
Now i got to the step where i can format and pick whatever partition i want my windows installed on, and when i pick C:\ I get this error:
"Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition"
I tried for an few hours got angry and "accidently" broke my usb stick
I still kept on troubleshooting the problem, not sure where i saw this but somone mention using an external hdd, followed the guide on how to manage and unzip the .iso on the external hdd, plugged it in, started the windows 7 installer yet again and sure i got one step closer again. This time to the installation of the windows, yay
But! (unlucky me) got another error! as following:
"Error 0×80070017 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: 0×80070017"
I have no idea what to do next, ive tried everything including: Vista (orginal cds) Professional (Original cds) and multiple burned cds. Nothing works!
Oh, yeah. i formated the entire hdd so i have no OS at all anymore... bummer...
I probably forgot somthing but this is all i remember for now, if you require anything else please ask away and thank you for the help.
