solved error during installation i have searched the forum and haven't found a solution to my problem. the HDD is clean and formatted during the process each time so i have nothing to boot into. this is not an upgrade! so i cant log in then run it. i get the error 0x80070017 what i have tried different DVDs Different DVD drives different ram slots and ram configurations different HDD settings (ide, achi, raid) boot from USB <--- wont work for some reason. when i go into bios and turn on boot from USB it still says no removable storage drives are accounted for no matter how many times i restart the comp. it doesn't give me an option to even try and boot from usb after the bios screen. i have run memtest86 on each ram stick 2 passes each i have run seagate hd tool long test, it passed with no bad sectors i have placed both the HDD and DVDs in another computer and formatted it with no errors.
