install error code 0x80070003

error message: "windows cannot install required files. the file does not
exist. make sure all files required for installation are available, and
restart the installation. error code: 0x80070003". i've tried installing
from the dvd-rom, and from a copy of the dvd-rom on my hard drive, each
several times. please help.

Re: install error code 0x80070003
Are you allowing Windows to go online and get updates during install from
the desktop? That error is usually related to updates. Try unchecking the
online update option.

microsoft and still no go.. all the test are good to go but the soundmax

birthday end of Dec. waiting on Conan to come out want to use all my ram
and dirext x10 dang.. :cry:
