Fix for 0x80070017 on Vista Install
Condition : Installed full version of XP with SP2, upgraded to Vista Home
Preim and recieved 0x80070017 error, files could not be found.

I tried cleaning the DVD and player -> not the issue.
I tried the ATI driver uninstall -> Nope
I tried the other tricks suggusted here.

Fix : I have 4GB RAM (2x2GB), I took one out started it up in XP and
performed the upgrade to vista...no issues.

Hope it helps

BTW XP only showed 3.25GB ram

Vista 32bit can not use all the addressable 4GB of RAM
What you are seeing is correct. The balance(as far as I know) is assigned to
hardware.

Thanks for posting info!
