Windows 7 Error code 0x80070241...... ON EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im trying to reinstall Windows 7 on my mothers hp which was working fine before. Ive tried every windows 7 download that is currently on microsofts website, everything from home to ultimate, 32 bit to 64 bit and keep getting the same error message everytime. Ive even tried it on my pc in virtual box and the exact same thing. Whats also weird is when trying to copy the windows files its goes from 1% immediately to 100% and then the error message appears. Ive never seen system files copy that fast. It seems to me that, microsoft is trying to completely eliminate window 7 from existing.

Might need to checksum your windows 7 ISO file to make sure its file integrity is ok. The ISO file could be damaged or missing some data. If that checks out and the checksum comes back with no errors try using a different media creation tool. Example Etcher or Yumi USB tool's.

Personally woudn't doubt MS is purposely borking the image..... But the error is related to misconfigured files in the OS, chances are it's a bad/corrupt file(s) within the image itself: Error code 0x80070241 - Google Search

 

This seems to be a common issue as of late.... And I have to wonder why.

Could be a problem with the HDD in the computer as well. If you try to install Windows to a failing or bad HDD it will error out in pretty much the same way. You should use a portable HDD tester to see if there is an issue with the HDD.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Have you tried installing win10? I'm just asking to see if its operating system based issue or even a linux based OS?

Hmmm that's pretty strange, earlier when you were checking the hard drives did you open the laptop? If so maybe try making sure the drives are properly connected same for the ram if it is seated correctly? At this point for me I can only recommend trying to install Ubuntu and see if it runs stable?

This hp hardware:

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 220 2.8GHz

RAM: 4GB Kingston DDR3 (did have 12GB in it}

GPU: GTX 750 2GB

PSU: Liteon 250w ps-5251-08

Motherboard: Pegatron m2n78-la rev 6.01

 

Other notes: I bought a Phenom ii 965 cpu for it, which hp says it supports. When i plug it into the MB and try to power it on, its says cpu not supported. Another thing is the motherboard has a 24 pin connector but hp went cheap and the psu only uses a 20 pin connector. Would this cause the cpu to be not supported?

I mean it was working before right and just swapping the OS should not have cause it to fail to boot etc.

Its the OS itself, since microsoft been screwing around with stuff, windows 7 seems to be the only one having this issue.
