    several attempts to install windows vista 64 ultimate have resulted in the
    error message: "windows cannot install required files. the file does not
    exist. make sure all files required for installation are available, and
    restart the installation. error code: 0x80070003". i've tried installing
    from the dvd-rom, and from a copy of the dvd-rom on my hard drive, each
    several times. please help.

    Are you allowing Windows to go online and get updates during install from
    the desktop? That error is usually related to updates. Try unchecking the
    online update option.
