    Hi, my dad and I were installing Vista Beta on my laptop and had selected to
    install Vista as a clean install. At 30% completion of the install we
    repeatedly recieved an error 80070017 message concerning a setup file not
    being able to be installed properly.

    Is this an error I can get around? The reason I ask is that when I left the
    laptop to look for solutions, my dad decided to try to format the hard drive
    using the option in the Vista install program. I have lost all ability to use
    my laptop and would desperately like to have an OS installed so I can use my
    laptop. (The reason I have not reinstalled XP is that I cannot find my
    installation CD for it.

    If you need further information such as PC spec or a more detailed error
    description I would be happy to provide it.

    Many thanks
