    Can't Install error 0x80070017

    I have created a USB install drive with Windows USB/DVD Tool and successfully created a Virtual Machine with Virtual Box.
    The virtual machine works fine so now I want to run dual boot with Win 7 64bit. Using the same USB drive the installation stalls at preparing files 11% and after some time stops with message "Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing... Error Code: 0x80070017."
    I am trying to install to a spare hard disk and tried with it formatted and as unallocated space.
    I am certain the USB drive is OK as I used the same drive to create a virtual machine without problems.
    Thanks for any help.
