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

Try to burn the ISO file at the slowest speed possible.

I know, but it sometimes happens with microsoft (glitch). But just give it a try, if you have a dual layer recordable DVD. Otherwise you could try a different optical drive.

You did enable (AHCI) in the BIOS for your SATA controller I hope!

I did not, do you think that could be it?

Actually, it was enabled this whole time. So that isn't the solution.
