Windows 7 x64 will NOTY install from a legal DVD with a COA License Ke
I cannot install OEM versions of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
from a Windows 7 x64 DVD with COA and valid license keys
I'm hoping someone has seen this before and
found out why the following is happened.
I purchased a new OEM Windows 7 x64 DVD from a
well known retailer for a new computer build with all new components.
When I tried to install with the Windows DVD to a new empty intel 240 gb SSD
the install failed and I was presented the following error.
“Windows encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer. This error can be caused by unplugging a removable
storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use.
Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.”
I/O Error 0xc00000e9
In this case, the above error message "seems" similar in nature
to someone telling me there is an open window in a room that has
no windows. Here's why I say that.
On an older machine, I could not re install OEM Windows 7 x64 using
the install DVD specifially for the older computer
same error happens.
However, I was able to install and activate Windows 7 x64 on the
new build and was able to re install Windows 7 x64 on the older machine
using a Windows Pro 64 bit ISO image that I download from
a web site given to me by a Microsoft tech representative.

I created a bootable 4 gb flash drive according to instructions and that worked without
a hitch. Why does the DVD fail to install Windows?
