Hello

I'm trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate on my Vertex 3, but it's showing me the 0x80070017 error.

I've tried formatting it from the Windows setup, but it was no use. What am I doing wrong?

Cheers

EDIT: Before you ask, yes, it's a brand new legitimate copy of Windows 7.

So, I flashed the drive using my laptop's HDD, I formatted it, and I'm still getting the very same error when installing Windows.

"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070017

Figured out what the problem was. The 64-bit DVD is messed up. I tried installing the 32-bit version and it ran just fine. Guess I'm going to have to get my hands on another 64-bit DVD.

Regardless, thanks for the help.
