[:en]Windows 7 onwards seems to not always have clear error messages when handling installation problems.

E.g. when starting setup, errors might appear like:

Product key could not be verified, check installation / boot medium.

License terms not found

German error messages:

Produktschlüssel konnte nicht überprüft werden. Bitte überprüfen Sie Ihr Bootmedium.

Die Lizenzbedingungen konnte nicht geladen werden.


Give your PC more RAM.

In most cases, it is not the ISO file’s or DVD’s fault.

E.g. Hyper-V assigns 512 MB RAM to guest VMs by default which is not enough. Use at least 1024 MB.[:]
