    thats what i downloaded i downloaded Windows 7 Professional x86 (32-bit) from there and it wont work its stuck on the expanding files at 0%.

    im trying to download the home version now. maybe its that. has anybody ever had this problem before? this is the first time i ever encountered it. i even reburned the disc it still wont work i burned it at 4x.


    it says windows cannot install required files. the file may be corrupt or missing. make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation.

    Error code: 0x80070017

    you need to download a burning application like IMGBurn and burn the ISO on the lowest possible speed. If you burned it through explorer, its known to have issues because of the speed the disc was burned at.

    Is there any possible way you can try burning the ISO off another computer? It could be a number of things that are preventing you from creating the disc properly such as a defective drive. Me personally, I bought UltraISO and I have never had 1 problem buring any of my images.

    Simple things if you think the file was corrupt, then download again. You could also check file hashes for the file :)

    @ jruss00

    If by "the thing" you mean the download link to the official Win 7 iso referred by anarchist9027 above then 'no', it is not pre-activated.

    If you're looking for an activation method, take a look here:
