Default Win 7 install issues

I am upgrading a tower for a customer who would rather upgrade then buy new. Her HDD was failing so I ordered her a new Patriot 60 GB SSD SATA II

System specs are as follows:
Intel Celeron D 352 3.2Ghz
2GB DDR2 RAM (1 stick) <-- MoBo manual says 2 sticks of 1. I'm not sure if this really matters or not.
300 watt psu
Onboard GPU (ATI Radeon Xpress 200)
MoBo RC410M

I checked everything out. GPU is DX9 compatible, both memory and processor are enough to run Win 7. The MoBo has two SATA ports. BIOS detects the new SSD. I formatted the SSD with Gparted. It starts to install, then I get the dreaded error 3 times now.

"Windows cannot install required files. Makre sure all files required for installation are available and restart installation. Error code: 0x8007048F"

I've swapped SATA ports, tried new cords, even tried the SSD in a good tower and it works just fine. I'm at a loss here.
