"Windows Setup experienced an unexpected error. To install Windows, restart
the installation. Error Code: 0x0"
When I used the DVD on my LG DVDRW Drive it went through with no problems...
I did some searching and found out this could be an issue with the primary
(Master) Drive hence it working with my secondary drive (LG)... I swapped the
drives around and still had the same problem on the HP Drive. I removed the
LG drive and only used the HP drive, still the same problem. I can install
all other software with the HP drive apart from Microsoft Office Professional
2007 and Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.
Any ideas or suggestions?
You need to uncheck the Enable DMA option for the IDE channel your drive is on. This can be found under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in Device Manager.
