Installation Failed - Error 0x80070241

Jan 14, 2009

I have tried installing Windows 7 in Virtual PC and on my HP 2133 netbook. Both halt when in the copy file stage with this error message:

Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241 I have downloaded the iso's again (from the Microsoft partner site) in case there was a corrupt download, but I get the same error.

The VPC image was using the ISO directly, and I copied the files from the iso to a usb drive for the netbook install. Anyone else see this?


Error 0x80070241 - File Is Corrupted Or Missing And Installation Cannot Continue

Oct 22, 2009

I have Vista Home Premium 64 bit and I'm trying to upgrade to 7. I bought the college copy so I only have the download, no DVD.

When I get to like 10% of installation I get error 0x80070241, and it says that a file is corrupted or missing and installation cannot continue.

I know everyone hates n00bs who ask questions that have already been answered, and I did google this first (and call Microsoft), but the results I found on google went right over my head and Microsoft was not helpful at all (I shot them off an e-mail thinking I might get better service that way, but they haven't responded yet.)

Anyway, what can I do? I really really want Vista off my computer but it like refuses to die lol.

Error 0x80070241

Feb 23, 2009

This appears to be a somewhat common install error and it happened to me.

Searched and discovered multiple _possible_ hardware and software causes and multiple _possible_ resolution schemes.

The only consistent solution regardless of all other factors was a boot from the Windows 7 install media; DVD, USB, etc....

Necessitates a temporary BIOS change to make the Windows 7 media the 1st boot media.

Me: Dell Optiplex/P4 3Ghz/2GBmem, XP Pro sp3, Windows 7 to be installed on a clean fresh dedicated 75GB drive.

Failure History: multiple downloads, multiple DVD burns at various speeds on multiple drives and multiple media mfrs, copied to new drive, ISO busted to new drive - Install always started in Windows environment and always failed with Error 0x80070241.

Success: Reset BIOS to boot from DVD, seamless install from DVD, 1st time.

Observation: On some hardware/software configs, in some obscure corner of Windows there sometimes exists a process/dll/driver/etc.... that creates a conflict with the Windows 7 installer; run the installer in a 'non-windows' boot and no conflict.

64-Bit Install Error - 0x80070241

May 11, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 32-Bit RC1 on my desktop without issues using Daemon tools and mounting the ISO and installing to a separate partition, that's all very peachy. The original OS was Vista HP 32-bit.

Can't say the same for my laptop running Vista HP 64-Bit. Using the same method, the installer gets to about 12% and then comes with this error.

Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241

I've downloaded more then 10 GB in the past 3 days re-downloading .ISO from both the Microsoft site and Bittorrent sites and seeing if they're corrupted. They're not. I get the same error every single time. Something else is the problem.

I tried installing BOTH the 32-bit and 64-bit inside my Laptop Vista 64 bit OS and I get the same error.

I've also unzipped the .ISO to my drive and tried installing that way. Same deal. Why did my Desktop go so smooth but my laptop is a living hell?

Clean Install Windows 7 From Vista...error Code 0x80070241?

Sep 9, 2010

savvy, and am having troubles installing Windows 7 on my laptop. I purchased the software, downloaded the .iso file from Microsoft's site, then burned the .iso file to a disc. Once on the disc it showed a few different folders and a setup option. I launched the setup option, which brought up the install window for windows 7. I chose clean install because upgrade is not an option for the current version of vista that I have, and while it is copying the files, after about 3% it gives me the error code 0x80070241 and says something about not being able to copy all of the needed files and that some of them may be corrupted. I don't know if this is a problem with my computer or with the disc that I've burned.

SSD Installation Failed To Boot (0xc000000e )?

Feb 10, 2013

I just bought a new Lenovo T430s and a Samsung 840 Pro SSD. Cloned the system by using Norton Ghost (First cloned the hidden disk, then Windows 7 disk) as the manual (Samsung 830 manual) said. Then put the HDD out and put the SSD in. However, the windows failed to bootWindows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix... Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. I checked the internet and just could understand some basic operations. For example, I entered into bios and saw SATA Controller Mode option [AHCI] Did not find any "Storage config" option... in the main menu. Also, I pressed F12 to the boot menu and selected Samsung 840 Pro but still no work.

Windows 7 Ultra64 + 4TB RAID0 = Failed Installation

Sep 14, 2010

The BIOS is currently set mostly for defaults/auto except for where I needed to specify RAID for the respective SATA ports connected to the two drives I want to stripe and to boot from CD for Windows 7 installation so I adjusted these settings accordingly.The motherboard has an onboard AMD 890FX based RAID controller. I have two 2TB SATA3 drives configured for RAID0 using the onboard RAID controller software. The RAID controller software reports slightly over 4TB as logical drive #1. Everything seems fine at this point.Next step: Boot from the DVD to install Windows 7 Ultra 64. This attempt is a clean install, full (non-upgrade) version, to be installed onto a 4TB RAID0 array using two brand new HDDs.During the installation I supply the device drivers as specified by the mobo's owner's manual. Windows7 installation accepts them no problem. Suddenly, there is a problem... Instead of showing the available drivespace as just under 4TB, after the RAID hardware driver is supplied the list will then show two partitions, one barely over 3TB and another one roughly 1 TB. It does not show one 4TB drive after the driver has been provided from the mobo's driver CD.If I continue to install on the 3+TB drive anyway, the installation routine seems to go through the usual motions... But then comes up with an error... Something about not being able to prepare the drive for booting and to try to re-run the installation program again. It always ends at the same point with the same errror. I will post the exact error message after I give it another try. I should've written it down already, but it's no problem for me to re-create it.So... If someone posts that Windows 7 cannot be installed on a 4TB partition for whatever reason, like it cannot address over 3+TB of drivespace or other reason, then I can just forget about using the two drives in a RAID0 array and use them as 2 single drives.

Driver Installation For Microsoft Wired Controller Failed?

Sep 10, 2012

Okay, I'm trying to hook this thing up to my new Dell Inspiron 15R. The thing is, when I plug it in, it keeps failing the driver installation. Ok now here is other part. I have used this controller perfectly fine on my previous HP Mini 210. As you know, that's a pretty weak computer compared to the one I just bought.w, after about 2 hours of researching, I've downloaded the current drivers from M$, and that didn't help at all. Next I came across someone who said check the device manager. Okay, so I did a cross examination with both computers and found the netbook had something called "universal serial bus usb controller" drivers with several others branching off while my Dell did not. Also the fact that the Mini uses USB2.0 while the Dell is 3.0.So I've come to the conclusion that my Dell is lacking(and it is) these "Controller" drivers. Now the annoying part is when I use the device manager to search for updates, it says it can't find anything. I've googled around(and used the driver disk that came with my Dell) to no avail.I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help with my problem. I'm just using the controller for gaming. It works fine in the netbook, so I don't think power to the controller is an issue. My M$ drivers are up to date so I don't think it's those either.

Hard Drive With MBR Failed; How To Get Main Installation Working?

Jan 8, 2013

My former hard drive with my MBR on it failed. This hard drive was/is 750GB and when I purchased my 'main' 2TB hard drive I made another fresh install of Windows. In other words, I had two installations of Windows on two separate hard drives. However, the MBR is located on the now-failed 750GB hard drive, and so my 2TB install of Windows won't work. I have tried (and failed) at repairing or otherwise installing a new MBR on the 2TB hard drive.

Installation Error: Setup Cannot Continue Due To A Corrupted Installation File

Sep 13, 2009

I am installing Windows 7 (Custom installation initiated from Windows XP) but I get the following error message when the installation is on the "Installing updates" step of the installation:

"Setup cannot continue due to a corrupted installation file. Contact the vendor of your Windows installation disc or your system administrator for assistance."

Do you have any idea what the problem may be with the installation? Is there a way to see what file that may be corrupted?

I have tried to burn the DVD in low speed, but the error appears anyway. I have a MSI K8T Neo2-Fir mainboard and the Windows 7 upgrade advisor application says that my hardware is okay for upgrading.

Failed To Upgrade Error

May 12, 2009

What happened: At the very end of installing RC Windows 7, I got a "failed to upgrade" message, and then it said my system would automatically revert back to Vista, which it did (thankfully).

I have already uninstalled Windows OneCare (virus protection). However, when Windows 7 was installing, my Spyware Doctor opened up and I had to click "yes" on it for the Spyware Doctor box to go away. Do you think that could have caused the upgrade to fail? I had turned off Spyware Doctor, but I'm thinking I should uninstall it before trying Windows 7 again. What do you all think?

Installation Not Successful An Known Error Has Occurred Error 0x8008095

Jan 14, 2012

I have tried to install Windows 7 SP1 64 bit and it gave an error message of: windows update encountered an unknown error code 80246007. I also get the error message after my laptop restarts if the installation shows it supposedly installed: installation not successful an uknown error has occured Error 0x8008095. I have also tried the 3 steps to try before installing Windows 7 SP1 and I still get the above errors.I would like to know the following:

1. When we update Windows where does it store the updates. Because I noticed that each time I update I loose disk space and I am wondering if I could delete these updates once I know they work.

2. I noticed a folder in the color of purple. It is: c:userusernameApp Datalocalmigwiz in this folder it contains the following files: debug.txt, diagerrr.xml, diagwrn.xml, miglog.xml, setupact.txt, setuper.txt what is the folder for.

3.I use windows disk cleanup and ccleaner. I noticed that when you install or uninstall programs it creates a restore point and shadow copies. I clean them out once a month. Is there anywhere else that shadow copies are created and can be deleted. How about does Windows 7 has a cache where we need to delete files. How many temp folders does windows 7 create. I would like to retain some disk space back. Do you know if Office 2010 where it stores it updates and can we delete them once we know they work.

Connection Failed: Error Code 23 - Raidcall

Nov 7, 2012

(I was going to post this in the software section, but I assumed since it pertains to the network portion of the application and that I can connect through a VPN, that the problem is LAN Network oriented)I recently installed the software Raidcall (RaidCall-100% FREE Group Communication Software- IM, Group Communication and Voice Chat) which is a program designed to be a cross between Skype and Ventrilo. I avidly registered and the process went smoothly. That was all until I came up to login screen where after entering my information, I got the following error: Connection Failed. please try again later (Error code:23). Does this have something to do with Cyclic Redundancy Checking? That's the only information I could come up with. I've done as much research as I can think of, sent them an email with lots of information (no response as to the answer yet), and also asked on their forums but no dice.

Background information (I can provide more if needed)

- On a University Campus ( Technical Information | IT | Indiana Wesleyan University )

-I"m connected directly through to their wall. I"ve also tried swapping out my own cables to no avail.

- Have done an Error Checking Check for both drives (for CYC relation - which I think it may be the culprit (I"m not tech savy though hence my forum post)

- I CAN connect to it through a VPN (Hotshield) - obviously I don't want to have this be my way of connecting through it because I want to use Raidcall while playing (World of Warcraft) and it gives me horrible latency.

- I've called my IT support here at school, and they didn't think it would be something on their end. Although the guy on the other end did not sound intelligible at all.
