Windows 7: Install issue - File not found

Install issue - File not found

Hey guys,

I am trying to install Windows 7 on my sister's computer. Now i goes all fine until it gets to extracting files.... it sits... and sits.... and sits.... until it pops up saying.... such and such file cannot be found.... i can get the file exactly, but i would have to do the whole thing again.

But, i can't figure out why when i use the same disk, i could install it on my friend's laptop..... i just seems to be this PC... could it be a hard drive issue or something????

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Cohen

Thanks,

It has a previous install of Windows XP Pro. I am wanting to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I got the disc from windows, when i signed up to host a windows 7 launch party.

I am doing a Hard Drive test and complete format using the Ultimate Boot CD.... a friends says it could be a hard drive issue.....

Thanks,

Cohen

Have you tried removing some ram. Go to just one stick if you can and try to install again.

Edit - There is only one ram stick....

Once the hard drive test has been done, i'll try again.

Any other suggestions that could be wrong??

Thanks for your help so far guys!

Cohen, I hope you know that when you install and activate it to your sisters laptop, the activation on your friends laptop is lost if you are using the same key.

Same PC as i said before..... so i don't know how you got confused.

Anyway, hard drive format etc is still going, hopefully it fixes the issue, and i can install.

Thanks for your help, i'll post back later if i succeed, or require further assistance.
