I am trying to install windows 2008 R2 Eval copy on Intel(R) EM64T capable.
I selected the Enterprise version, when it gets to Expanding Files, it stay at 0% for about 10 minutes then  it throws a message saying "Windows can not install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code 0x80070079"

Any help?

Thanks

Sound like that the DVD hasn't been burned successfull (even if your burning program tells you it has). I would burn the image again but this time wiuth reduced writing speed.

I had this error two times and this solved it both times...
