Hey, I am trying to install Windows 7 RTM, legally, Have my legal product key with me.

So it installs, i have the ISO image, i mount it, and run the setup from there, that is how i did it with the windows 7 RC, And it worked fine.
But now, It gets past the first part, installs fine, Second part, Fine, 3rd part where it is at "Completing installation", At about 99% done, It gives the the following error:
Quote:
Windows setup could not configure one or more system components.
Then it restarts, and ends there.
It looks Somewhat like this:http://www.omni-gamer.com/win7a.png(exact error)

I tried re-downloading twice, I tried Re-installing 4 times, No avail.

Any help? Ideas?
Thanks
~ReCreate

Instead of mounting it, try burning it to DVD or extracting it and copying it to a flash drive. Those are the ways that it is "intended" to be installed and they stand the best chance of working properly.

1) Have you verified the ISO CRC values?
2) Try removing any USB peripheral devices
3) Try burning a DVD and booting from it, rather than mounting the ISO

4) If non of the above works, hit with hammer. Repeatedly.

Non of this is advice, I am not an expert, I am not governed by any professional body. Do not sue me.

I don't have a DVD disk nor a DVD burner or a Thumb drive large enough to do that...

Did you do an in-place installation? That must work.
If you did a custom install, then it's obvious why it's failing.

Hmmm...
Can you try writing the image to a USB and booting from it?

Well, that makes the installation the issue.
You'll need to boot from the installer and not mount the disk.

Please do not make pointless polls. It's not meant for the kind of stuff you use, this is a discussion forum which means people will discuss whatever problem you might have. If anyone believes they know the answer they will post it into the discussion thread.

I have removed the poll.

You are allowed to make polls, that's why we don't have it disabled. Just don't make pointless polls. Polls are about gathering statistical data, not "can you help me? yes/no"... If anyone could help you they would regardless of your poll.
