Hey guys, can someone please help me :help:

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.
