  1. I had this issue, quit the installer, cleaned the disk using DiskPart— launched the setup again, and got 0x80042417 instead — same text in the error. Then when I close the error window, it said the drive was “unallocated space” and now it’s installing just fine. Very strange. 🤔

  3. This is very very useful, and it literally saved my time. I don't know why did even people hit the dislike button.

    The video is bit shaky but it's a fact that there is no other way of making any video on it, since the OS is not working and there isn't any option of screen record.

    💯 out of 💯 from me (y)
