When I searched "error 1632," my friend Google told me there were two common problem areas.

 

1.  The "temp" and "%temp%" folders (they're different) may be full, or have a corrupt file in them.  This is resolved by cleaning them out.  Personally, I use a freeware program called CCleaner, but it can be done manually within Windows.

 

2.  The most likely reason has something to do with the %windir%\installer folder (usually C:\windows\installer).  It's a required System folder.  First, you'll want to make sure it exists.  If not, you'll want to create one.  It's likely that a mistake was made when creating a partition, or using a flash drive.

 

P.S.  I'm not a professional IT guy, or giving you an official reply.  Like you, I'm just a player, and relaying what I noticed from a Google search.

 

P.P.S.  To view the \Windows\Installer folder on my PC, I had to access >Control Panel >Folder Options >View Tab, and then uncheck "Hide protected OS files" in order to see it.
