Well, I tried copying the setup files to a new folder in my desktop and run
the installation from there. It made no difference. At about 52% of copying
files, I still got the Windows Setup error message: "An error occurred while
copying Setup files to your local machine. Error code is [80070241]".

This probably means you either have a bad download, a bad burn, or problems
in your hardware. Try burning a new dvd at a different speed from before as
a start.

Re: An error occurred while copying Setup files. Error code is [80

I re-downloaded the ISO file but used a different download manger which I
downloaded from Cnet,,com called "Free Download Manager 2.0. The download was
successful and using my Nero 7 software I burned it to DVD successfully. I
ran the tool that Microsoft provides to see if my machine could run VISTA and
it said yes. I attempted the installation again. Before copying files it
told me that I would need to get updated versions for my programs: Power DVD,
Check For Real Player Update, Real Player, Rhapsody, and my newly purchased
"Windows Live One Care", after VISTA installation. It also warned me that my
1394 Net Adapter and 1394 Net Adapter#2 will not work and instructed me to
get updated drivers from the manufacturer. My machine has an AMD Athlon cpu
that runs at 1.53 Ghz, 768 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 9550 256MB 4/8x AGP Video
Card, Creative Audigy 2Z Audio Card running Windows XP2 Home Edition. So, I
inserted the newly burned installation DVD and to my surprise it actually
copied all windows files 100% with no error messages. It did take a long time
to do so, but it did it. It then proceeded to complete the rest of the list
of the installation. It finally got to the point where it was finalizing the
upgrade and at the very end it said "The upgrade was unsuccessful" and it
restored my PC back to XP. So what went wrong this time? I have no clue.
