Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I know for a fact that this procedure works because I did my flash drive like this... If you are having the same problem of the windows installation failure at 80% than it will be your Windows 7 Setup Files and suggest that you find another set of files that are workable.

So I extracted the boot folder and did all this.

Now I need to extract everything to the flash drive then boot?

Yes, everything in the Windows 7 goes right onto the Root Directory of the Flash Drive.. do not make a separate directory on the flash drive for the files, just right on top of the root because that way the boot sector will see the correct files.... it is very anal with this kinds of things.

Then you need to find another set of setup files. Those are corrupted. You don't have to redo everything again with the flash drive.

You just need to delete all the files off the flash and replace them with working files.

Where did you get Win7? The iSO is normally 2.34gb untouched. Check the HASH against Official HASH.

This is the first I've ever heard of UltraISO failing. At which step did it fail:

1) On File tab Open ISO

2) On Bootable Tab, write Disk Image

3) Format first, then Write.

You can also try Win2Flash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srOoGhm-jcI

To elaborate on this, MSDN Technet ISOs:

W7 x64 Ultra ISO = 3.00GB (3,149,108 kb)
SHA-1 = 326327cc2ff9f05379f5058c41be6bc5e004baa7

W7 x86 Ultra ISO = 2.32GB (2,443,256 kb)
SHA-1 = 5395dc4b38f7bdb1e005ff414deedfdb16dbf610

mod: not sure if posting the SHA hash is OK here, edit my post if necessary.

Yeah my hash is the same as what Josh posted.

Tried burning to disks and it is giving me the same error.

Thinking it may be my hard drive?
