Installation error code 0x80070017

starts to expad the files the error code shows up 0x80070017. i'm using the cd
that came with my laptop and i know nothing is wrong with it because i
previosly used it to re install vista on the same laptop before. i'm doing
the same exact thing as i did before so i doubt i'm doing anything wrong. can
