Expanding Files 0%, error 0x80070017 Windows 7 x64 RTM

Windows 7 installation stuck on expanding Windows files (0%)

What are the causes? Is it common? BTW, this is burned copy. I've installed Windows 7 previously using same DVD. But now it is stuck.

Error code: 0x80070017

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

This error is often caused by bad/corrupted install media. Have you re-burned your image and tried installing again? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 9 '12 at 16:08

I edited it, the fact it's pirated doesn't really matter to the question or answers. The fact it's a burned disk (pirated or not) may. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 9 '12 at 16:12
@jitendra789 So is your question "How do I get past this and get Windows installed", or is it really "Is this error common, and what causes it"? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 9 '12 at 16:14
@ekaj The OP themselves said they were pirating. Check the first revision of the post. – slhck Nov 9 '12 at 17:51

Your CD is corrupt in some way. Try reburning the CD, or using a program such as UNetBootin with the ISO.
