    Do you get any message, or just the error number?

    You might try booting to system recovery options and running checkdisk.

    Check Disk - chkdsk

    I'm having the same error in the Vista Ultimate instalation and the message that appear read "Windows cannot install required files,The file may be corrupt or missing.
    Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation.
    Error Code:0x80070017...I check the DVD and it shows some scratches,probably were made by the drive,because I just use that DVD 2 times only.
