    1)Go to start menu → Type in like this “CMD”
    2)Select CMD from the search results
    3)Right click on the CMD → Run as Administrator
    4)In CMD, type in the below command and then press Enter
    “net user administrator /active:yes” without quotes
    5)Restart the computer, for saving the command settings which you have made on your system.
    6)Finally, Retry to install windows 7 ultimate system on your system.
    Error Report: Normally, mentioned error message refers to error code:0x80070005, which indicates that you don’t have enough permissions or privileges to run the Operations on your system.
    That’s it over!

    Hi, Dear friend

    To resolve the above .....follow these instructions

    First of go to start menu and click on MY COMPUTER

    Now open the INSTALLED DRIVE which is usually C:\ DRIVE

    Then find the Windows folder ...and Rename it as windows.old

    Most of the cases the C: drive does not allow you to change the NAME in that case try to log on to windows with ADMINISTRATOR account and continue the process

    After that try again .... it will be resolved

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!
