"Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001"

So I was playing with RHEV the other day and having some problems installing Windows 7 in a VM.

The error I received was:

"Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001"

What?

The cause apparently is the fact that the install disk is missing from the drive. Ok, my bad: I had to take it out (virtually) to install the Virtio drivers. But is it really that difficult to write an understandable error message? What is wrong with: "The install disk is not in the drive.". Sheesh.

This sort of problems mostly occur with me too most of the time, this is usually because of the missing important files required for the installation. Next time try a fully loaded disk.
