    Well, I tried copying the setup files to a new folder in my desktop and run
    the installation from there. It made no difference. At about 52% of copying
    files, I still got the Windows Setup error message: "An error occurred while
    copying Setup files to your local machine. Error code is [80070241]".

  2. This probably means you either have a bad download, a bad burn, or problems
    in your hardware. Try burning a new dvd at a different speed from before as
    a start.

    I re-downloaded the ISO file but used a different download manger which I
    downloaded from Cnet,,com called "Free Download Manager 2.0. The download was
    successful and using my Nero 7 software I burned it to DVD successfully. I
    ran the tool that Microsoft provides to see if my machine could run VISTA and
    it said yes. I attempted the installation again. Before copying files it
    told me that I would need to get updated versions for my programs: Power DVD,
    Check For Real Player Update, Real Player, Rhapsody, and my newly purchased
    "Windows Live One Care", after VISTA installation. It also warned me that my
    1394 Net Adapter and 1394 Net Adapter#2 will not work and instructed me to
    get updated drivers from the manufacturer. My machine has an AMD Athlon cpu
    that runs at 1.53 Ghz, 768 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 9550 256MB 4/8x AGP Video
    Card, Creative Audigy 2Z Audio Card running Windows XP2 Home Edition. So, I
    inserted the newly burned installation DVD and to my surprise it actually
    copied all windows files 100% with no error messages. It did take a long time
    to do so, but it did it. It then proceeded to complete the rest of the list
    of the installation. It finally got to the point where it was finalizing the
    upgrade and at the very end it said "The upgrade was unsuccessful" and it
    restored my PC back to XP. So what went wrong this time? I have no clue.
