RC1 x64 Install Error 0x8007000D

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Charlie Drake, Sep 9, 2006.

  1. This has happened four times using disks created at x2 and x1 on a Dell
    9150 with a D950 and 3 Gig Ram, currently running Dual Boot XP Pro and
    RC1 x86 with no apparent problems.

    Doing a clean install to a fresh 80Gig partition.

    Install starts, allows me to enter Product Key, then thinks for a short
    while (10 secs) and gives me the following Error:

    "Windows cannot open the required file G:\sources\Install.wim. Make sure
    all files required for installation are available and restart the
    installation. Error code 0x8007000D."

    I double checked the disk and the file required is available (all 2.2Gb
    plus of it), I downloaded a second and third copy of the ISO and burned
    them at x2 and x1 all give me the same error.

    x64 Beta 2 installed without problems.

    Any ideas/pointers

    Will try on a separate machine tomorrow to see if its a problem with the

    Charlie Try this:

    The solution is to

    1) Check the MD5 at download. 2) Check the CRC using your burning software
    or the CRC below. 3) Reburn slowly as directed below.

    Your download or your burn is bad--and by odds it's your burn .

    Do Not remove the DVD and press F8. Leave the DVD in at completion. On
    most modest boxes, setup should complete in 20 minutes or under for RC1.

    Also, you didn't say, but if you're attempting a dual boot and it won't load
    from XP than try a restart. If you are using a system that requires adding
    drivers, make sure you read these groups as to SATA/RAID, etc.

    I think that you need to reburn and possibly download RC1 now since that's
    the latest build that's available to the public, and use the MD5's provided
    on this and the Vista group for the download integrity. When you burn the
    DVD use the CRC or check the box befroe you burn to ck the burn's integrity
    when burn completed.

    As someone has posted, RC1 has a number of SATA drivers but you may have to
    supply them for some boxes.

    Now that RC1 is available here are some quick tips to help your install.

    1. When you download the ISO please use the Nero MD5 Verifier
    (http://ww2.nero.com/enu/Nero_MD5_Verifier.html) and verify against the
    following checksums.

    MD5 hash: 22486e815a38feffd9667317dfeec55a
    SHA1 hash: e00b4ebbc81fb420cf047973b95a9cfb7cdf51b7

    MD5 hash: f3a385aae6e4dea9226e31d9f1148b56
    SHA1 hash: 8e4de7a72c828a3543ff1663243eb0836da07eea

    2. Burn the ISO at the slowest speed your DVD burner will let you.

    3. Please make your feedback public, so that those of us TechBeta members
    can help you with issues that arise with your install. To do that please
    follow these steps.

    Download the Microsoft Beta Client from the 'How to Share Feedback" link on
    your desktop.
    Open the Beta Client and select the 'Options' link on the left hand side of
    the window
    Check the box marked 'Enable Advanced Tracking Options'
    When you submit a report please make sure that when you submit it you have
    selected 'Public - all site users and MS' on the Finish page and submit the
    reports with a Microsoft Live ID.

    4. Upgrades from Pre-RC1 to RC1 are not supported upgrade scenarios. Please
    use either XP or Beta 2.

    5.If you upgrade from XP or Beta 2 and you encounter errors during the
    installation and you can access XP or Beta 2 please save the install logs
    located at either the Windows\Panther directory or the
    $WINOWS.BT$\Sources\Panther directory. When you send your report to MS these
    logs will come in very handy.

    6. If you encounter any BSODs please save your memory dumps located in the
    Windows directory called MEMORY.DMP and then in the MiniDump folder. When
    you submit BSOD related issues please upload these dump files with your
    error reports.

    If you have any questions or concerns please post them here to the NGs and
    someone can help you troubleshoot any issues that you may be having.


    I posted this:

    Don't upgrade from a previous Vista Beta. I'm not saying you can't, but
    after all there is still debugged code and there are pitfalls so clean up a
    drive and install Vista as a non-upgrade. I'll stay away from the
    metaphysical, epistemological discussions about every install of Vista being
    clean as a whistle. I understand but recommend you don't upgrade from the
    Beta to Beta or from a Beta to RTM even though I'm sure you could make any
    scenario happen. Give yourself maximal chance so you can spend more time
    enjoying Vista, comparing it to your take on Beta 2 and really drill the
    features and read up on them. There are a lot of very well done sites now
    with fine info, and plenty of great stuff on the MSDN and Technet blogs on
    Vista as deep as you might want to dive as they say.

    4) If you are on SATA or RAID make sure that you install the appropriate
    drivers early in setup after the PK is requested.

    5) If you're going to dual boot, try to install within XP with XP on the box
    first. If that does not complete, then restart.

    6) Use the Akami server download I've provided that MSFT is offering. It's
    very fast--I tested it a couple weeks ago when they opened up 5536 although
    I already had it to see what the download speeds were with Akami.


    32 bit RC1 MSFT Akami Server download


    64 Bit RC1 MSFT Akami Server download


    1) Burn slowly. 4X should be fine. Some of this probably varies with
    theDVD writer and the media.

    2) Make sure to select an ISO tab if there is one on the burning software,
    and make sure to close the session on the burn.

    3)Try this tweak on your Windows XP drive and burn from there:

    Get to Dev Manager by typing devmgmt.msc in run/win key + pause break or
    Rt.click My Computer>Prop>hardware tab>Device Manager if you like 5 steps
    instead of one cmd. If you're set to PMI here change to DMO and if set to
    DMO change to PMI using these 5 steps:

    1) Click the + in front of IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

    2) Double Click the Secondary IDE Controller

    3) Click Advanced Settings

    4) Under Device 1  Next to Transfer Mode choose DMA (or vise versa)>Click

    5) Reboot your System

    6) Check your download with the CRC hashes here and read the post release
    RC1 notes.

    Signatures of the ISO files:
    MD5 hash: 22486e815a38feffd9667317dfeec55a
    SHA1 hash: e00b4ebbc81fb420cf047973b95a9cfb7cdf51b7
    MD5 hash: f3a385aae6e4dea9226e31d9f1148b56
    SHA1 hash: 8e4de7a72c828a3543ff1663243eb0836da07eea

    When you start to burn the iso, check the box that says validate the burn
    when through or use this:
    CRC 0xB3519FCA

    *Definitely read the post RC1 release notes--in deference to the boys and
    girls at Redmond MSFT they're not the usual "yada yada" as Google is wont to

    Good luck,

  3. MD5 Checksum confirmed on 3 separate downloads, burned at x1 , x2 and x4
    on new disks unfortunately same outcome in all cases. I don't think it
    is a SATA issue as I have successfully installed x64 Beta 2 on this
    set-up. Have filled a report, will check on different machine tomorrow

  4. Resolved by burning to a -R disk rather than a +RW.

    x64 installed and activated in 20 minutes with 2 restarts, good start
    now the work begins........

    I am using a disc provided directly from Microsoft as part of the feedback
    panel and am receiving this error. Any thoughts?
