    I Used the new windows Vista Build 5744 (rc2), but I have a probleme with the
    I did a clean installation.
    The first step of the installation does normal (Copying files)
    The second step (expanding files) goes to 26% and then crash
    with a 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 have same problem with beta2 rc1 5728 Build.

    Then I reset my computer and go to the bios and my Hard Drive is gone.
    Then I shutdown my pc en hard drive is back. I install Windows XP
    Professional SP2 again and runs normal wit no errors during setup.
    My iso file is not corrupt, I did a md5 check
    Is there a solution for this problem?

    These are my computer spefications:
    AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (1,67 GHZ)
    512 MB RAM DDR400
    Maxtor Diamondmax10 200GB IDE Hard Drive
    MSI Geforce 6800LE graphics card 128MB WDDM-Support
    Mainboard ASUS a7v880
    Soundblaster Audigy SE
