Since yesterday I have been trying to install Windows on a Laptop I have. It used to have it, but for some reason when I booted up, it wouldn't boot, and it wasn't recognizing the hard drive.
I replaced it and tried re-installing Windows 7, and everything goes well, until l it reboots and says Some files are corrupt, or some specific driver is missing, or there is a hardware error. The specific error was, 0xc00000e9.
I tried different installation disks, and that didn't work, then I tried switching out the dvd drive for another one, didn't work. And then I switched the hard drives, and It didn't work. All the hard drives I tried were working, and the Disks I knew were for sure working too.
Now, I tried installing Win7 on a new hdd, and it says Some installation files are missing, and it cancels the install. Same problem.
Then, I tried installing Windows XP, and it all goes good until reboot, and it says it can't start because some file is missing or corrupt, such as (ntoskrnl.exe) But a lot of the time there are others that it says are missing too.
I have no idea what could be causing this, maybe could it be the RAM or something?
EDIT After some tries, I successfully installed Windows Xp, and it works, but now When i try to install windows 7 from inside it, it did not work, and when I try the normal Installation again, it says windows cannot install the required files because they may be corrupt or missing, error 0x80070017.
