The Solution to Windows Vista setup error code 0x80070241
I ran into this error 0x80070241 from the Windows Vista setup at around 50%. It turns out that there are hardly ANY good solutions online. I searched and searched and only found people saying they have found nothing and no fix, including MVPs.
Then, I ran across a little comment buried deep in a blog complaining about it somewhere that said to download Vlite and recompile the image and run it from the hard drive.
Guess what? It works great!
So here is the link to VLite: http://www.vlite.net/download.html
All you have to do is download it, direct the program to the extracted setup files (extract them with winrar) and recompile the image using the wizard built into VLite.
Hopefully this gives enough Google rank that it becomes useful to some people out there!
