Error when trying Fresh install of windows on new build

windows cannot open the required file d sources install.wim windows 7


^^^

I get this when I try to install windows
The installation wizard starts and I enter language/keyboard etc
I click install windows and then it says setting up and it gives error code: 0x80070017


Any help would be much appreciated
pretty sure it isn't a problem with the disk or optical drive

thanks

    I did not, do you think that could be it?
  7. Actually, it was enabled this whole time. So that isn't the solution.
  8. You still have this issue?

    It appears to be defective media, or a drive that cannot read that particular disk.
