Error code:0x80070002 when trying to install Windows ??
I have bit of a problem , I have the following pc which I bought 3 yrs ago , so I suppose relatively old Compaq Presario SR2125UK Desktop PC
Its running 2gb of mem , 140 GB , duo core intel proscessor ( I cant remember the exact speed - i suffer dyscalculia but I bought this when duo core pretty much just came out ( if that helps )back in march 07 here in the uk from pcworld with Windows preinstalled.
To recall how this happened is TBH akward as this has been recurring issue for some time that I managed to sort of deal with, with antivirus software , but never truly sorted until it started getting out of hand ( fan whirling all the time ) about 3 wks ago.
At the time I thought it was just a bad virus that had somehow got in there ,so I tired various antivirus software like kapersky , spybot which helped up to point ( at least speed it up / stop the fan buzzing ) but for some reason it never truly fixed it either.
This actually started to happen if I recall by doing a Microsoft update so as result I continued to ignore them , as its just slowed down my pc ( sometimes worse than a virus itself )
Tonight then I attempted to sort this ,using software I bought called Paragon disc manager . My idea was to just formart it ( thinking it would delete / replace anything else in there ) and then restore disc, but unfortunatley this has not worked out as planned.
When I ran the program it told me to run disc chceck - so I did and it found 0 problems to fix , although Paragon seemed to think otherwise , so I decided to go ahead and install any way.
After typing in the product key however windows wouldnt install , and instead I got told the folllowing below..
Windows cannot open required file:J:\Sources\Install.wim.
The file does not exist. Makes sure all files required for
installation are available , and restart Error code:0x80070002
I tired recbootfix from the command prompt - nothing
I managed to get into safemode and doing another disc check but nothing too ( although the drive does appear formmated ie. it says 0 )
downloaded the original 4 drivers from compaq site thinking It might help but as I have to install them before It can find them - no use ie. it doesnt recognise them at all .
So now Im left wondering what my options are as I cant really think of what else to do , does any one have any other suggestions , or am I as well just scraping the hard drive ?
