Windows 7: installation stuck on expanding files at 0%

ubuntu but wanting windows7
 
 

Hi everyone.
I have recently bought a new PC and am trying to install the windows 7 release candidate on it but it gets stuck on expanding files at 0% every time and just won't budge.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been getting so exited about it coming, what with delays, and then i can't get the damn thing to work.

by the way the bit before the expanding window file: The "Copying windows files" bit it does really fast and goes strait from 0% to 100%.

Now it has come up with this error message :Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required are available, and restartt the installasion. Error code 0x80070015.

Hi Jrandomguy and welcome to SevenForums,

The Error code 0x80070015 relates to a device not ready which would normally relate to the DVD drive

This may be simply that the install DVD is corrupted in some way or that the download of the .ISO is faulty in some way. worst case would be a hardware faullt

You could try re-burning at the 1x speed to give the disk the best chance of burning correctly, or maybe downloading again.

Other options are use of a USB stick to install from - if this is an option for you - there is a tutorial on this site if you want to try this method - at least the media is re-usable - I have used RW DVD media for the same reason in the past
