Error 0x80070017, requesting gregrocker's assistance but any is welcom

I have just built a new gaming PC and according to every forum my hardware and the installation of said hardware is sound. I have an ISO verified copy of windows 7 but during file expansion it hangs at 22% and gives me the above mentioned error message. My ram is compatible and correctly configured in BIOS. I am using one stick and have tried all slots. I have used SATA config AHCI and IDE to no avail. Attempts at booting from a USB drive have also been unsuccessful. My PSU is more than enough and according to 12 different instructional videos as well as the various instructional manuals everything is installed correctly. I have reset CMOS jumper and was again met with failure to install Win 7. Is there anything else I can try? Endless forum searching has left me quit discouraged and more than a little confused.

Also, your ISO could be corrupted/damaged in some way. If you have access to another machine you can download and burn the ISO again and see it that might work for you.

My specs are now available and indeed I have tested the disk in my laptop and it loaded correctly showing all files intact. Do you think it could have to do with the fact that no drivers have yet been installed on the PC. I understood that these were to be installed after the OS.

Did you do the full install on the laptop test? If not it still sounds like the installer. Download the latest official ISO and burn DVD or write to flash stick using tool in Step 1/2 from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If that fails try wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command from installer Command line accessed by pressing Shift + F10 at first screen.

Do you have another OS you can try installing as another test?
