  2. Try copying the files from the initial ISO/DVD onto a seperate folder on the
    hard drive, and try installation from there. Hopefully that should fix it
    :eek:)

    step by step on how you did it? The rest of us could learn from it.

    I also had the same issue when installing Windows Vista, it appeared at 8%.
    My HD was Seagate ST380013AS (80G SATA), 20GB for installing Vista (i.e.
    C:\). Below was my system:

    MB:ASUS P4P800 SE
    CPU: Pentium 4 3.2CGHz(Northwood)
    Memory:1G Dual channel
    VGA Card: Leadtek Geforce 6800LE 128MB
    Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy
    ODD: ASUS E616 DVD-ROM
    DVD-RW: Pioneer A10XLC
    PS: I'd already burned the iso file to DVD at the slowest speed (2x) using
    Nero Burning Rom.
    Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot!

    I'm having the same error message and code 80070241. Firstly, I tried
    installing from the DVD I had created onto a ntfs formatted disk. Then I put
    a second hard disk with Win2000 on it into, and booted from that. Then I
    copied the setup files from the DVD onto the Win2000 disk, and ran setup.exe,
    selecting the new disk as installation target. It failed with same error
    message in the same place i.e. 17% installed. Maybe my iso is corrupt?

    AMD Athlon 1.3GHz
    Gigabyte GA-7VRXP with Promise controller
    512Mb RAM
    115Gb hard disk

    I got vista to install and its running pretty smooth...heres what I did...

    I tried everything that was listed on here
    - burn image
    - burned 2x speed
    - mount the iso using daemon tools
    - copied the iso file to a different directory and running it from there.

    all these steps failed.

    my specs are 2500 XP+ (1.83 Ghz) 1.5 Gig of Ram and a 300 Gig HD ATA

    So I downloaded it for a second time and mounted it and it worked fine (I am
    almost positive that error 80070241 means the iso is corrupt because I saw
    several other people with this problem and redownloading it fixed it)...its
    currently set up with a dual boot...if you have less then a gig of ram I
    strongly recommend shutting down some of the eyecandy...I also used the max
    allowed for a page file and its running pretty nice...it currently does not
    have drivers for my sound card but everything else is fine

    You guys are not going to believe this. I finally got Vista to install,
    heres what happened and how I did it:

    1. I pasted the download link into FIREFOX of all things. that is the only
    way I could get a good download.

    2. Burned the ISO to DVD using Roxio DVD builder @ 2X speed.

    3. Copied all the install files to the hard drive in a folder labeled "Vista
    Install" and ran the installation from there. It took 2 1/2 HOURS to install.

    When Vista started for the first time, all I got was a black screen, working
    mouse, and the build number noted in the lower right corner. NO graphics at
    all and nothing works. I had to roll back the installation and am now back
    to XP.

    Talk about disapointment! Any thoughts? My machine is a 1.4 Gig celeron
    with a GIG of RAM

    My .iso must have been corrupt. I downloaded it again, burnt a new dvd and
    everything installed OK.

    Cheers
