I decided to install Windows 7 but kept getting an error stating:


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: 0x80070241

I tried re-downloading, re-burning, and even different burning software, but nothing worked. So, what I did was put the dvd in, and restart, and load from dvd (If you don't know how to do this, just google it).Note that this is the same dvd I got the error with. Everything was fine when I loaded the loaded the dvd from startup.

So if you get this error, nothing may be wrong with your iso image or your burning software, and just try this.

I have exactly 512 ram. But I'm pretty sure you get a different error when you don't have enough ram.

In win7 DVD, use Advance Option and format your driver or use Vista to format and installing win7 again. Try it

The reason I added this post was because I encountered this error - so I googled it to try and fix the problem but no one really found out what the problem was. So if anyone does run into this error, this solution should work.
