    when installing the WDP either from dvd or from USB when it get's to the first WDP announcement and the balls start rotating

    they do this for a few seconds then everything just stops.

    I've redownloaded the ISO 4x remade my USB 4x and 2 dvd

    system specs

    i5-2500k
    12g ddr3
    560ti oc
    msi 67a-g43 mobo
    500g sata for win8 testing

    ran the win7 mem tool 0 errors

    memtest no errors

    any clues would be appreciated

    thanks

    me too im getting this error Windows cannot copy files required for installation. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. during file expansion any cure for this?
