Windows 7: Yet another "Windows cannot copy files to this disk" message

This means it should start with the P2P Adjust. Do you have a CD drive? Can you borrow a USB CD drive?

I'd try writing PAR using Yumi as it will sometimes work with the undesignated listing.

I asked the PAR tutorial author to consult with you on this.

YUMI Can make a multi boot flash disk. Even unknown ISO's can be added. Make Windows 7 bootable after motherboard swap there is the ISO that you need

Hello!
I've got the answer for this problem.
I solved it this way:
1). I've connected the hard drive to another SATA compatible PC and started installing MS Windows 7 from the USB. I was able to select the proper partition to install Windows on it.
2). Before the installation step "Completing installation" (image) a PC reboots. I powered off the machine, then removed the hard drive and returned it back to the destination PC.
3). Then, I've continued the installation without booting from any installation device, just from hard drive. After finishing everything works fine.

So, thanks for you help!
I hope what this topic will be useful for windows community.
