Windows 7: x80070017 error on install?

x80070017 error on install?

Hi, I've had a few problems with my Acer desktop so decided to do a fresh reinstall.
I downloaded two different copies of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP 1 (one from the Del forum, can't remember where the other was from!). Burnt one to an ISO DVD and the other to a ISO USB drive.
I installed the latest BIOS.
I disconnected all HDD apart from the one I wanted to install onto - which I did a format of (from within Windows 7 - the fast format).
The Windows 7 install get's to the "Expanding Windows files" which sticks at 0%.
I then get a error (x80070017) which says it cant extract the files?
As I've used two ISOs, two downloads, any ideas what the problem could be please (I've googled but can't find anything helpful)?

Thanks!

Most likely a bad installer.

Start with the ISO from Step 1 and use the tool in Step 2 to burn or Write, then follow the rest of the steps here to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
