I have an INTEL hard disk 40 GB SSHD. I could not Load Windows 7 with BIOS parameter AHCI this resulted in an error message, "Window cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart .. Error Code: 0x80070017".

Try not to do a bios upgrade when using Windows 7


Just thought I would mention this as it is the second machine I have bolloxed now due to doing a bios upgrade.
A while ago I did a bios upgrade on a desktop machine and after doing it got a BSOD and windows would not boot. Had to format and do a fresh install to get over it. This time round I did a bios upgrade on my laptop so that I could put a T9500 processor into it and got the same problem.

Bit of a pig this one though as I have 3 weeks of non backed up emails I will lose amongst other things. It seems that if you do a bios upgrade windows 7 see's it as a different machine and just errors out without trying to load. There seems to be nothing you can do to recover from it. Only option I have it to install another operating system on it and then see if I can downgrade bios. See if that will work. Just be aware of this as not something that will show to often as not to common to have to upgrade bios. Hope this helps someone.

Hi,

To install a clean OS (win 7) first make sure check your system specifications if its compatible on windows 7 if yes there shouldn’t be an error, if you're using a CD maybe or optical drive is having a problem reading the CD and I would also suggest using a different DVD drive, or maybe copying the installation files to a USB stick (4 GB or bigger) and performing a USB install.

The error 0x80070017 translates to "CRC Error" which means that the files that are being copied from the disk are not making it to the hard drive with the same structure, meaning that the "original" files on the disk are being modified/changed/corrupted while being copied to the "destination" location on your hard drive during the install.

This usually means either a bad DVD, or a read error on the DVD drive. The easiest thing is to make a USB drive to install Window s7 (and it's WAY faster than DVD too!) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/video/installing-win7-using-a-usb-stick I hope this helps.
