Unable Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade - Error code:0x80070005 on a Mac?

11/23/2011 07:34 by MikeChin

I am having a frustrating morning trying to install Windows 7. I currently have Windows Vista Ultimate and have purchased the upgrade version of Windows 7 Ultimate. As soon as I try to run the installation file I receive the following error. ¨Windows was unable to create a required installation folder. Error code:0x80070005¨ I'd be very grateful for advice on how to resolve this problem.

  • UPDATE!  No need to re-install Boot Camp 2.1.  If you are having issues just uninstall Boot Camp.  That solved the issue for me.  Once Windows 7 is installed re-install Boot Camp.

  • See if your Bootcamp is actually version 3 (Right click - About Bootcamp) I did a system restore because I had just updated these drivers. But if you did it when you got your Snow Leopard you'll have to uninstall Bootcamp 3.0 from Programs and Features.  If you remember, when you first loaded Windows Vista you didn't load Bootcamp until after the installation was completed.

  • This error code indicates that Access is Denied. I personally have seen this error when the DVD drive has difficulties reading the disk.
    There are a couple of workarounds.
    1. You can copy the contents of the DVD to a folder on the root of your C drive and run Setup.exe from there
    2. If you have a large enough USB flash drive, you can use the new Windows 7 USB / DVD Download Tool from Microsoft and using the tool create a USB drive with Windows 7 setup on it, and you can run setup from the USB drive.

But i just came across a good hacker who helped me hack my boyfriends text messages, whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram messages remotely..You don’t have to touch his phone while you have access to his conversations through the software he bought and install remotely on my phone, i dont know how he did this but i think he's perfect at it.....contact him at jonnycyberghost@gmail.com..Tell him Allinson referred you, then you can thank me later.
