original title: Error code: 0x80070570
So, I received my launch party pack today. Went to install Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. Went to it's first reboot and I realized I had a display problem. My montior is connected via HDMI and the display was out of range, so I couldn't tell what the computer
was doing or if it was asking for input. Tried switching to VGA and it didn't display, so I had to do a system reset. Of course, Win7 install failed. Got back into Vista Ultimate and attempted to reupgrade. Went through the T&C, compatibility check, and
a few seconds after it started to copy files (still at 0%) I received the 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: 0x80070570
I did a disk cleanup and got rid of temp files and installation files with no success. When I searched the web for a solution, the only common one I found was to wipe a 100mb partition, which I don't have. I remembered from installs eons ago, there might have been something in add/remove programs. No dice.
Where do I go from here? I do not want to do a clean install. I attempted to contact the Windows 7 Launch Party support line and the mailbox is full.
