    I am trying to install Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. When I click the
    setup.exe, and then click on "Install Now", I immediatly get the pop up
    window that says:

    "Windows was unable to create a required installation folder."

    Error code: 0x8007000D

    I am on the administrator account.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This error is linked to STIERR_Invalid_HW_Type
    which is a related to windows unable to communicate with a connected
    scanner, camera, or other device.

    When you disconnected all external devices (or the shared partition), you
    probably cleared the error and was able to proceed.

    What it may have needed was the driver installed earlier in the installation
    process if you want to install windows with this device connected. Being an
    upgrade, and not a clean install, I would think the driver already present
    which kind of implies the shared partition was the problem.

    But, I don't really know and found this interesting.

    I have been getting the same error code. I was able to initially
    install with no problm, but I had to repartition my drives and run the
    x64 XP as well as vista x64 for compatability. I repartitioned them
    with XP and installed. After installation nothing worked, I was able to
    run windows XP but the CD drive, my hard drives, and internet were not

    I unplugged my 1 terra drive and worked only with my 80 gig SATA,
    western digital. I then reset the CMOS and BIOS, and unplugged
    EVERYTHING but my keyboard, hard drive, monitor and video card, which
    was the initial set-up when everything worked the first time.

    Still no luck.......

    Next step will be to completely erase the hard drive using an external
    tool, cleaning the cd using a cloth, and switching to a PCI keyboard
    instead of the USB. Even though I used the USB keyboard for the initial
