Windows 7: Error Message On Install - diagerr.xml

19 Apr 2013   #1

openSUSE 13.1 64bit
Error Message On Install - diagerr.xml

Hi, Trying to install W7 on an old PC:

4gb RAM
Intel P4
260gb Hardrive

The hard drive has been completey wiped with DBAN and formatted for windows. I removed the floppy drive from the PC as it didn't work and disabled the option for diskette in BIOS.

I am using an Original Retail disc - IE not a download or a copy.

Install starts fine > can select my language > accept the EULA > Select the hard drive > Setup then tries to unpack the files and I get this error:

C\:$Windows.~BT\Sources\Rollback\diagerr.xml. not found

It then goes through a loop of not found, corrupt, missing etc........

Any ideas?
