Vista Error: 0x80070241

Postby chicagotech » Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:04 pm

Whenever I install Windows Vista through Upgrade I always get the error 0x80070241 at 70% of copying Windows files. I've been trying to get other files of Vista. But it always ends up in the same place. I've also used a lot of my broadband bandwidth by trying to get other downloads.

Some have said things about MD5 hashes and CRC things. But I don't thing so.
It may be my hardware.

I have researched and found something relating to BIOS things.

Please, please help Microsoft.
You should know on how to help me (some people have said that Microsoft can't even determine the problem)

Thanks in Advance!!!!


A. If you downlaod the vista image and make a DVD, seelct lower speed. Then re-install it.

B. had the same problem, and i resolved it by: Uninstalling my internet security.

C. 1- Downloaded file is valid for setup.
2- Determine whether the DVD image you burnt is damaged or the downloaded file.
3- Issues concerning Install.WIM file (master setup file).
Tool needed:
Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel v2.0.1.1
http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... nel_21.exe
1- Run the winxpvirtualcdcontrolpanel_21.exe tool to extract it.
2- Double Click: VCdControlTool.exe
3- Click Driver Control, Install Driver then browse for VCdRom.sys file and select Open then start then Ok.
4- Click Add Drive then Click Mount and browse for your vista file you downloaded and Open then don't check any option and click Ok.
Now you have a virtual copy of the Vista DVD, you can perform the following:
- Copy the entire DVD contents to local hard drive as offline/network setup source.
- Copy the Install.WIM to the local hard drive in case of failure of adding this file to DVD image during burn process.
- Verify that this downloaded file is valid for setup (By copying entire contents to local hard drive and perform installation from it) so that if there were any DVD burnt image not working, so the error from the burn process and NOT the downloaded file.
To perform clean installation from the local hard drive directly:
1- Do NOT perform setup from the Virtual DVD you just mounted your vista file in.
2- Copy entire DVD contents to local source folder named for example: "WINDOWS VISTA".
3- Perform the setup process as clean installation (UPGRADING BETA SOFTWARE NOT RECOMMENDED).
This method avoids you having many setup issues regarding DVD image, bad Install.WIM file reading and many more
