  1. Hello, just got the new windows vista ultimate and seems that I get this error, 0x80070241, at 40% of copying installation files. I googled it to see if there was a solution but I could not find any. If anyone knows how to fix this problem please post it here. Thank you :D

    Is this the exact message :
    "Setup was unable to find end user license agreement" error 0x80070241

    Nope, it says something like corrupted file. The thing is it seems other people who have this problem tried and bought 3 vista cds and still had the same problem. Some tried to install on different computers and worked for some and didn't work for some. So it's not the file that's corrupted, it's something else.

    try these steps :
    1.If your in XP make a folder on the root of your C drive called vista.
    2.Open My Computer click tools then folder options.Put a dot in Show hidden files
    and folders in Hidden files and folders.
    3.Then copy over the entire contents of vista dvd into the vista folder.
    4. Open the vista folder and double click setup.exe.

    try this might help...
