Windows 7: 0x80070241 (w/ mailed DVD)

0x80070241 (w/ mailed DVD)

So for weeks I've tried Digital Rivers installers, the ISO at a slow burn... I now have the actual DVD backup from Digital River that I bought from them... I STILL am getting the 0x80070241 error that mentions corrupt files.

How is it possible that their DVDs they are mailing are just as bad as the downloads people have been having problems with? I have tried switching DVD Rom drives, testing the HD, re-formatted my HD with a clean install of XP and trying the custom upgrade to 7 and I get the same error everytime...

I have gotten this error with every install I do.

Hello and welcome to windows 7 forums.
I empathize with you and we are here to assist you.
First off are you installing Windows 7 X64 or X86?
Next what is the type of install? Upgrade or full/clean install
And last, what method are you attempting/DVD media or a bootable flash drive?

Updates

I also suggest the before you attempt any futher installation that you visit assus and download an update for your MOBO chipset and any bios updates that you see.

Sorry... I forgot most the BIG details...

- I have winXP Pro going to Win7 Pro x86
- I'm doing the custom install (I believe thats the only one you can do)
- DVD Media is what I am using. This is the genuine backup DVD Digital River mails you if you choose to buy the backup.

Are you booting from the DVD, or are you trying to install from within XP?

I have tried both... I've tried installing from XP and also booting using Digital River's mailed install DVD you buy from them.

At what point during the install do you get the error? Do you have SATA drives and also a SATA DVD drive?

Have you considered installing from a USB flash drive?
