    Hey guys, can someone please help me

    Error code:0x80070017

    I currently have an activated windows 8 installed on my laptop which is great because activating windows 8 really was difficult for me.
    The problem is, I had it installed on a wrong partition (D) which is only 22.6 GB.

    The reason why I did this was because I had my previous version of windows (Win 7) installed on partition :C, and I wanted :C to be clean before I install windows 8 but my windows 8 installer is not bootable so I installed my windows 8 on partition D then formatted partition :C by simply going into My Computer and clicking "Format ".

    So now when I'm about to install windows 8 on the formatted partition :C, before it finishes its installation, it shows an error that says it cant continue the setup because some files are missing or corrupted.

    Error code:0x80070017

    Can anyone please help me or tell me what do????

    I also tried installing windows 7 but it also gives me the same error.
    I tried installing after effects, not successful either.

    HEEEEEELP!

    You'll need to get a bootable DVD. The error 0x80070017 means that your download of Windows 8 is corrupt.
