I've been trying to reinstall Vista on my computer. It will no longer install. On a clean partition I get an error code saying,
"Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070001.

It does this when it reaches the "Extracting files" stage. It freezes at 0 percent and then stops with that message. It's frustrating because it has NEVER done this before.
People do dumb things. And I'm not talking about paying too much for car insurance either.

Update:

Tried another burned Vista DVD disk and it stuck on 0 percent for about three minutes and it's reluctantly "expanding files". After about 60 percent it cut it off and got the same stupid error message. :huh:

Try using a legal copy. (Apologies if it is)
