Problem Installing windows 7 on Pavilion dv7

The installation is just right until the installation is on "Expanding Windows activated files(0%)...." it takes too long n gives an error message bellow....."windows cannot install required files.the file may be corrupt or missing.make sure all files required for installtion are available, and restart the installation. error code: 0x80070017...."

The error 0x80070017 translates to "CRC Error" which means that the files that are being copied from the disk are not making it to the hard drive with the same structure, meaning that the "original" files on the disk are being modified/changed/corrupted while being copied to the "destination" location on your hard drive during the install.
This usually means either a bad DVD, or a read error on the DVD drive.
The easiest thing is to make a USB drive to install Window s7 (and it's WAY faster than DVD too!)

I would check the manufactures website, as "Sometimes" 3rd party software doesn't use the upto date drivers.

Same issue but not working

I just installed a SSD drive in Hp Pavilion DV7 laptop. It doesnt expand files and i have tried 2 DVDs...these DVDs work on other laptops but on this model it just hangs at 0% and then eventually errors out the installation of Windows 7 Pro. Any other things i can try? I tried using external USB DVD but that doesnt work either. Thanks
