Windows 7: Windows 7 7057 x64 installation file copying error.

Windows 7 7057 x64 installation file copying error.

Hi guys

I'm facing some trouble installing windows 7 x64 build 7057

When i click "install now" button after booting from the DVD-Rom. I get an error at times stating that i need DVD/CD-Rom Device Drivers and it does not detect the harddrive. However if i wait a little while before clicking the "Install Now" button, i pass on to Licence Agreement page.

From there i get a choice to Upgrade or Custom Install. If i chose upgrade it gives compatibility issue report as i do not have any OS running on the Drive i wan to Install Windows 7 on.

When i chose Custom i get to choose a partition. I chose the Primary Drive C partition as this 120GB hdd has no windows installed (my regular 500GB HDD that has winxp and vista64 is physically disconnected through this process). The Partition 1 has 29.8GB free when formated. I start the installation on that

The first Step "Copying Windows Files" takes few seconds and reaches 100% without error

The Second Step "Expanding Windows Files" stays on 0% for around 5 to 10 minutes and returns an error:

"Windows Cannot Install Required Files. Make Sure all files required for Installation are available, and restart the installation."

After I click 'OK', it says on the Screen "The installation was cancelled. Any changes that were made to your computer during the installation process will not be saved."

I do not understand if this is my hardware related issue or do i have a bad DVD. My DVD seems to be loading up fine and files do copy around from it. The ISO i copied this from seems to be ok. Could someone explain why am I facing this error and how can I solve it?

My system:
Intel DG965RYCK motherboard
Intel Core2Duo Conroe E6300 1.86Ghz
Corsair 2GB (1GB + 512MBx2 sticks) 667MHz
XFX nVidia Geforce 8800GT 512MB
Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro
120GB Seagate HDD 7200RPM SATAII
500GB WesternDigital HDD 7200RPM SATAII (disconnected during installation)
LG DVD-RAM drive

All system is Stock and nothing is OC.

Best Regards
Mephisto

Hello Mephisto.

Try entering your BIOS and set the SATA mode to AHCI and see if that helps

Maybe you have a bad copy, have you tried it on another computer or tried another torrent?

Excuse me, but how can you say the copy seems to be OK without any basis?

The copy is not limited to the file(s) you downloaded but also the *burned* copy that you made - have you tried making another copy? Have you tried installing it on another machine to see if it works or not? Have you tried obtaining another download of the build and burning that one and seeing if it makes a difference?

Also, Windows 7 is sometimes sensitive to Overclocks...so if you are OCing in ***any*** way, turn it off.

I had the same problem trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 build 7068. I had used a DVD-R and it wouldn't get passed expanding windows files, it locked up for about 10-15 minutes and then I would get an error message. I managed to solve the problem by reburning the disk on a DVD+R and it worked perfectly. Try reburning your version on windows 7 on the opposite kind of disk you tried and didn't work.
