Can't install WHS on a Compaq EVO 500, get "Copying files failed: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). (error code 0x80070017)" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    When trying to install WHS I get

    "Copying files failed: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). (error code 0x80070017)"

     

    The machine I'm trying to install on is a Compaq Evo 500, w/ a 1.8 proceessor, and 512 ram. I've made my fair share of coasters so far. The final DVD I burned I know is OK, because I used it to install WHS on another machine for a test.

     

     I've used 2 different HDs so far. Both HDs have worked well before. I can install XP and Vista, both on the Evo machine, just not WHS. I've switched the memory out in the machine. I've also switched DVD drives. I reflashed the BIOS.

     

    If I install WHS on another machine, should I then be able to take that hard drive out of that machine and put it in the EVO and have WHS load up? I know you can do this with other operating systems.

     

    Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks
