sorry for the bump, but I still can't install windows 7 :S
I keep getting the errors that certain files are corrupt.
it says that it fails iinstalling because it can't find the files
"Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart in the installation. Error code: 0x8007045D"
please help me with this, I've been busy with this since yesterday :S

Sound like the hard drive is bad.
Since you have another PC to use, as you are posting here, download the drive diagnostic program, it is a ISO or EXE that will make a bootable CD, the the drive manufacturers website and run it to check that drive.

But then it could also be your memory so if the drive checks out OK then run Memtest86+, also creates a bootable CD or USB flash stick, to check the memory.

Well somethinig is screwing up the install. It's either memory corrupting the files as they are being copied to the HDD or the HDD has bad areas that when the files get copied to the OS can't read them back.
During the copying phase the install routine just dumps all the files on the drive. Then it reads them back to to set everthing up. Somewhere in the copying process they are being corrupted.

And you won't know which part is the bad one until you run those tests.

no, the CD has been used before and it worked great. But for some reason it's just failing the whole time this time. I got the iso from the microsoft website.. I can order a new one, but that's useless because the iso and the cd are just fine. I'm gonna run the memtest and HDDtest.

no, I burnt the dvd on this laptop.
and about the HDD test, it fails to test it because of a bad command. am I using the wrong program?
I've got a Harddisks 3,5 inch SATA
Samsung HD103SJ (1TB) and I used estool from this site:
Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.
this is what the exact error says:
can't open CD driver CD001 SHSUCDX can't install
your ram drive is loaded at C:
Out of memory error.
Bad command or filename
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Samsung HD utility
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
C:\>

I also did the memory test and the results were positive, no errors were found.

You could always borrow some RAM from a friend to do the installation...

but there's nothing wrong with my ram, I've done the memtest.
you guys think it's also good to return my ram? or does it have nothing to do with this problem?
