Having problems with your Acer Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

In trying to upgrade to Windows 7 I keep getting this error code:Ox80070017. What do I need to do to continue?


Answers :

Hi,

This error related to Data reading problem with your vista Disk.
\015\012It might be possible that your Win 7 disk has got scratches, which causes setup process not start.

Another reason is that there could be bad sectors on the hard drive you are trying to install Win 7 on.
