ERROR_CRC while upgrading the OS to Vista Home Edition

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

My father reformatted his Windows XP PC because of slow performance caused by many computer viruses when he realized to upgrade the OS into Vista Home Edition Service Pack 2. In the middle of the installation process, he got this error message “ERROR_CRC (0X80070017).”

Therefore, he rebooted the PC and tried to install it again but unluckily, the same error had occurred. He also initiated clean booting process, check disk and uninstalling Antivirus software as a suggestion from a friend but the same problem had happened during the installation. My father was very frustrated and I am trying to help him in this case.
 
Any helpful ideas would be highly appreciated.

ERROR_CRC while upgrading the OS to Vista Home Edition

Hi there,

I have read about the error ERROR_CRC (0X80070017) coming on your computer.

I have two solutions for you against the problem you have or if in case the problem will exist again you can still use the same steps for troubleshooting.

The first one is very simple, to check the disk for error by using Chkddsk.exe tool. Follow the below steps.

  • Click the Start button.
  • Look for Start Search bar right above the start button.
  • Type cmd in the search bar and then it will search for this program automatically while you're there.
  • At the top of the program you will see a black icon that says command prompt.
  • Right-click the black icon in the Programs list.
  • Click Run as administrator.
  • If you will be prompted for an administrator password or confirmation then type your password and click on continue.
  • A black screen will load up, on that screen type in: Chkdsk /f and Hit ENTER.
  • Press Y when you are prompted to check the disk next time that the system restarts.
  • Close all applications, and then restart the computer. While the computer restarts, windows begin checking for the disk errors.  After the computer has restarted, install the updates again.


Second Solution is:

  • Click the Start button.
  • Look for Start Search bar right above the start button.
  • Type notepad. And Hit ENTER.
  • Copy and paste the following commands on the notepad:

    • net stop wuauserv
    • CD %systemroot%SoftwareDistribution
    • Ren Download Download.old
    • net start wuauserv
  • Click File menu at the upper left side of the screen and then Click Save as.
  • In the File name box, type rename.bat and then click All Files in the Save as type box.
  • Save the file to the desktop so you can easily see it.
  • Look at your desktop for the file and then Right-click the rename.bat file.
  • Click Run as administrator.
  • If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  • And Try to install updates again.
  • If you're installing, you can delete the file rename.bat.

Hope these solutions are helpful for you.
