Ok I downloaded boot and nuke to wipe my hard drive on my laptop. Once that finished and everything was completely gone, I tried to install Vista. It gets to the "Expanding files" part, hangs at 0%, then goes to 1%, then 2%, then an error comes up.
"Windows could not install required files. The file could not be found. Please restart and try again. Error code 0x8007003"
I tried running boot and nuke agian, I tried installing XP, I tried resetting the bios, I tried removing the 2 GB of ram I recently put in, I've tried cleaning the disc 5 times, nothing works.
I really need some help here. Anybody?
