    I had some issues with Vista and I decided to dump the previous install and
    go it fresh. After formating my primary hard drive; or at least telling it
    to when prompted to select a hard drive to install Vista on I got the error
    code 0x80070022 Make sure all files required for installation are available.
    The last install I did was an upgrade from XP pro this time I decided to go
    at a fresh install to try and kick some of the issues I was having. Now I am
    lost I've spent all of last night and all of tonight fighting with these darn
    bugs any one got any clues for me?

  2. Joe,

    Setup encountered error while copying files from the installation media.
    From the error code, it seems to indicate that there is some issue with the
    installation media. It could be hardware related. [It seems that Windows for
    some reason detected that the media disappears and appears again, and
    determined that the reappeared media is different from the original one.]

    Can you try running the installation again and see if it works this time?

    If it still fails, can you try copying everything to your local harddrive
    from the installation media and run setup from local harddrive?

    Well I did a bunch of times. One other thing too, it takes about 30 minutes
    just to get to the install or repair windows screen after I hit any key to
    boot from the dvd. Its clearly working and then all of a sudden its like
    Windows forgets that it was installing from a dvd and then asks for drivers
    for the dvd rom. Because if I go into the drive that Vista install disc is
    in it says its a CD-rom and doesnt show any of the files from the install.

    Im not sure what you mean by copying the files? It said it was copying the
    files and then when it gets to expanding them it just goes through this whole
    mess. So Im not certain what the deal is and I did by a new dvd burner that
    is sata instead of IDE. Maybe if the current install fails again I'll put it
    in and try with that.

  4. It should not take so long to boot from the Vista install disc. The dvd rom
    is unusually slow. I don't know what could be the cause. If you have another
    IDE DVD rom, it may work better.

    If you have an existing XP partition, you can try copying the files from the
    DVD to a local harddisk, and run the setup.exe from the local harddisk.

    Yeah something was not right with that DVD burner I had. Before I had all
    the issues, the first install of Vista I did it took for ever to get to the
    install screen. I just put in a new Samsung DVD burner and it is flying; so
    this appears to be the problem. Its really moving along pretty quick here,
    now I hope I don't run into the networking issues that started this whole
    mess for me to begin with.

  6. Hi

    I got my Vista copy with my notebook, i found that the DVD is very less
    size, so i planned to include some softwares like office 2k as a data
    file. now what happens is the total size comes to 3GB from 2.5 GB. i
    simulated it with MSvirtual pc, i found that when i was about to select
    INSTALL now, it says installation cancelled and it shows
    \sources\install.wim says corrupted or misisng, when i check my source
    file its there. my original ISO is working fine, but the modified ISO
    is not working.

    can anyone help me?

    Thank you

    I had the same 0x80070022 error, and it was taking like 30 minutes just to boot up into the installation. The system had a DVD burner and a DVD ROM on it, and the burner was the drive that was incredibly slow - a "super writemaster" (wrongmaster?). I disconnected it, booted up the DVD ROM, and it installed in 10 minutes with no problems...
    Tried it 3-5 times before I found this thread -
    Wish I'd seen this earlier!
