I used to run windows 8.1 x64 but I had to reformat because I thought that would've fixed my problems installing windows 10. When I tried to install windows 8.1 x64 again it failed and got the 0x80070570 error. I also tried windows 7 64bit and windows 10 64 bit but I got the same errors. 32-bit OS installs fine though. Of course all my attemptse were clean installs.

I am working on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. Intel Duo Core 2. Had Windows XP on it. Trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate (store bought). Tried to do a clean install. (Wouldn't let me upgrade from Win XP).

During installation, about 4 minutes into installation, I get the error
"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570"

I tried another copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, which I know is good. Same error.

I swapped the CD / DVD drive, and still get the same error.

I ran Memtest x86 and am getting A LOT of errors with the memory.

Here are my questions:
1) Is the bad memory causing this error?
2) I found one memory slot, directly on the bottom middle of the laptop (2 screws to remove the cover). Where is the other memory located? It has 2 memory modules in it, and I can't find the other one!
3) Is there anything else that could be causing this error?

A:Error Code:0x80070570

Hey,in my view, this kind of problem is probably caused by the culprits as follows: 1.memory installation issue : try to check the installed memory situation on you motherboard and fix it if it has come adrift. 2.driver confilt : update some unsuitable driver to the latest version.

Sometimes things happen that are just out of your control.

first of all sorry for my bad English..

I have downloaded windows8 developerPreview-32bit-English (2.8 GB) successfully..
made a bootable USB and tried to install (fresh install).
when it comes to expanding files at 57% it gave error code:0x80070570 and tried again.
same error..
tried to install on VMWare, Virtual Box directly with ISO..
same error.
on the other system with different configuration..
and again same error..

so, i searched on google. only the solution there may be problem with ISO is to re-download ISO..
but my net speed is very very low (download sppeds upto 12 kbps).
i downloaded it 2.8 with great difficulties.. (took 5 days to download.)

i can't download it again..

is there any alternate solution like rebuilding the ISO with working files.
is it possible to know which files of ISO are corrupted and replace them with working files..

I would rebuild your USB install drive, you might have ended up with some corrupted files. Was this computer shipped with Win 8? if not then you'll need to set up your USB to boot UEFI, IE is has to be formatted fat 32, then on boot up hit which ever key on your computer that brings up a boot menu select you UEFI USB drive

I recently built a rig (spec below) and originally installed windows 7.

I decided today I would install windows 8.1 as I get it for free from my university. I booted the installation disc in EFI mode, wiped the SSD and deleted all partitions. I let windows create the partitions it needs and proceeded to install.
The installation got up to 2% in expanding windows files and showed error:
Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure that all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code: 0x800070570.

I rebooted and tried again several times and the same thing happened whether I chose EFI cd boot or not.

I then reinstalled windows 7 without any issues, and downloaded an 8.1 pro disc image from mydigitallife. The installation got a little further into expanding windows files, but the same error came up again.

Ive been reading that it may be a memory issue so i'm the process of reinstalling windows 7 and running memtest86+, but I doubt this is the case as its a mew system and windows 7 has no trouble

If anyone can shed any more light on why I am having this problem I would be much appreciated

I am trying to install Windows 7 32-bit RC on a desktop PC. I have previously used this disk successfully to install the OS on a laptop.

I keep getting an error message to the effect thatWindows cannot install required files.
Error code: 0x80070570Initially I thought that this was due to a flaky DVD drive but I have now installed a different drive and am still getting the same message. I also tried a SATA DVD drive but it seems that the Windows 7 installation process didn't like (have drivers for) this interface

edit:I have previosuly managed to load Windows 7 64-bit RC on this PC but had some problems with stability so thought I would give the 32-bit version a go.

I notice that some people have got around this problem by burning the DVD at slow speeds and by using a USB drive to boot from; since I have successfully installed using this DVD, the former doesn't seem relevant and I don't have an 8GB USB drive available. I will try running MemTest86+ on the system on the off-chance.Any explanations / other suggestions . . . please . . . ?

ps - I have just downloaded a new copy of Windows 7 32-bit RC, burned it at 1x and have got the same unhelpful error message

I'm new guys so bear with me.

Just built a new rig, specs are in my bio but long story short I'm trying to install w7 fresh onto a sshd from a usb. When it gets to 15% during expanding windows files it gives me the error code 0x80070570. so here's what I've done: ensured sata settings are set to ahci, used different ram in different slots on mobo, format hd in cmd with diskpart, made sure ram settings good in uefi, redownloaded Iso file and reran program to make usb drive bootable. Currently I'm using the clean all command in disk part and then going to try and partition the drive. Should I be partitioning for the ssd? Is there something else I'm missing with the hybrid drive? I've been working at this for about 2 days and could use some help. Thanks in advance

For the last few days, the system BackUp on my external hard drive is getting failed with error code 0x80070570 after completing nearly 95%. The backup consists of system images and other folders that windows automatically choose. Even when trying to run backup without the system images, the backup fails. As per my findings, the 'AppData folder' in additional locations is creating the problem as removing it from backup settings does solve the problem. But this problem didn't exist a few days ago and while letting windows choose what to backup, brings back the problem. How to fix it?

Hi all. I am trying to upgrade my older computer which has an Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 motherboard by putting 2 Samsung 850 Pro SSD's in RAID 0 in which it had created that successfully but when Windows 7 tries to create a partition on it, I get the following error code and some other message.

It is saying that Windows could not format a partition on disk 1. The error occurred while preparing the computer's system volume. Error code: 0x8004242C


I am using the AMD Raid option. I had to put the RAID driver onto a USB stick since Windows 7 was not seeing the drives until I had told it to install that driver first.

I tried deleting those extra partitions that had been created before and created new ones and it is still giving that error message.

Now there is another error. "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu." I went back to the BIOS screen and made sure it was enabled, so there shouldn't be any issue regarding that.

Let me know if you all need anymore details. Thank you for the help!


Other things I have tried doing is taking the RAM sticks out of the sockets and putting them back in and I also tried brand new unopened SATA cables, just in case and the error still happens.

A:Windows Installation Error Code: 0x8004242C

That motherboard has a UEFI firmware therefore
I tried deleting those extra partitions that had been created before and created new ones and it is still giving that error message.Click to expand...

it must if windows is also being installed to UEFI with a GPT format disc, be installed so that the installation creates a FAT format partition from which the firmware hands control to the FAT partition to load windows

UEFI must load windows from a FAT format partition. It can read NTFS file system but it cannot boot from it
The answer if that is the problem is to install to a complete unallocated partition and Windows will create the necessary partitions including the FAT partition.
Alternatively if the windows installation is to be installed in the - what we may call traditional BIOS and therefore MBR then that must be so set in the firmware

In order to offer further advice which edition of 7 is being installed
64 bit can be installed UEFI/GPT or MBR
32 bit can only be installed MBR

Support for Microsoft Update technical problems - troubleshooting

Hello. I am having the same issues with the Windows 10 upgrade as TheDude has previously reported.  In fact, last I checked the upgrade had made 30 unsuccessful attempts to upgrade.
I was thinking - and am a non-technically inclined senior citizen - that when I logon to my system I logon on using an @outlook.com address.  Could it be that my system is waiting for me to log on to a "local" account or something?
I tried the creation tool... clicked run and "poof," nothing. I even created a USB flash drive with the upgrade on it using our laptop computer.  But after the install began I was asked for the "product key;" wouldn't you know that the product key ended in AEOEM (or some such characters), but the upgrade told me it wasn't a valid product key.
So I contacted Dell... so much for paid support; worthless as teets on a boar hog.  They referred me to Microsoft, who, after keeping me on hold for some time, had me run MSCONFIG, go to the services tab, check hide all Microsoft services, and then hit apply.... Only problem? The MSCONFIG window said "not responding!"
The Microsoft tech said for $99 she'd be happy to elevate my tech support for one item for 30 days. I said no thanks, that was too much $$$ when they couldn't even guarantee that whatever they might do would correct the issue.  (Besides, it seems there are many folks encountering the same issues I am with the upgrade, so this can't be "just" my computer.)

My PC had a BOOTMGR problem on boot-up and it wouldn't fix through the command prompt fixes. (fixmbr, rebuildbcd, chkdsk) So I thought I'd do a clean install. I formatted everything on the drive, and continued to do the installation. (Installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) What ended up happening was, the files were corrupted or missing, but what I didn't understand was that the CD was OEM that came with the computer. The computer had that version of Windows before I formatted.

I was previously having S.M.A.R.T pop up on start-up, prompting me to push F1 to continue, but I disabled it because I thought it was annoying and found no problems with my hard drive until now. I accidentally cut into the S-ATA cord from the CD-Drive to the motherboard, but it's still intact. I thought that was the case, so I tried installing from USB and that didn't work either, ended the same way.

I've tried leaving only one stick of RAM intact (2GB) out of 4GB and taking out the battery on the motherboard, using the VGA output on my old GFX card, none of which solved the problem.

How exactly do I fix this? By fix, I mean let Windows install without any problem.

Motherboard: ASUS M4N68T-M V2
Core: AMD Phenom II 840 3.2ghz Quad Core
Graphics: ATI Radeon 5450 (512mb, currently intact)/ATI Radeon 6950 (Not intact, as it doesn't have VGA output)

If you were getting SMART popups then it's quite likely your hard drive is having problems. Run the vendor diagnostic.

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

Next, replace the SATA cable.

I tried to reinstall windows 7 after installing my new Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 mainboard, but the process stops at 1-2% and throws the 0x8007045D
Error message. I quick formatted and repartitionated the HDD. Still the same error. I tried again after low formatting the HDD with partition wizard,
repartitionated again, still getting Error 0x8007045D.

Also updated my bios, ran chkdsk and partition wizards sector check, which both say the HDD is fine, installed xubuntu and archlinux without any problem, reformatted and repartitioned again, changed my SATA-Controller in BIOS from AHCI to IDE, took out 1 RAM module, tried win 7 professional 64-bit without SP1 and win 7 prof. 32-bit. I ran the Installation Disk in both, UEFI and normal mode (of course with gpt partition table in uefi mode and mbr in normal mode), tried different SATA connectors and cables and burned and tried every single iso at least twice (with different programs).

I'm still getting Error 0x8007045D with every single setup I try.

System Specs:

Mainboard: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 with BIOS Version 1602
Previous Mainboard: Asrock N68C-S UCC
RAM: 2x2GB DDR3 Dual Channel 1333MHz
Video Card: Gainward Nvidia GeForce GTS 450

A:Error code 0x8007045D during Windows 7 Professional x64 Installation


You covered a lot, so the only thing I can think of is to take the CD/DVD drive out of the equation (although I note you did install a Linux distro using that, in addition to PW).

Download the appropriate Windows 7 ISO here, then use this tool to write it to a 4GB USB flash drive, which also makes it bootable. Insert the drive into a USB2.0 port, and then boot from that and try the installation.

The error is usually an I/O error....although I don't know why you should be able to install a Linux distro and not Windows. Did you install all the motherboard drivers prior to attempting to install Windows 7?

Hi All,

I'm hoping someone will be able to help!

I believe I have a genuine copy of Windows 7 home premium as I've been using it without problems for the last year. I've recently installed a new gigabyte motherboard and i5 processor so decided to do a clean install of windows 7 using my original disk. It all installed okay but after a few days windows 7 expired and every time I've tried to activate by typing or phoning with my original product key I have been unsuccessful. It says a problem occurred when windows tried to activate, Error Code 0x80072F8F.

I've also tried ligit check and got the following report using the diagnostic tool.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Members, my computer was attacked last week with some kind of virus. First I could not download any updates, but after running some Malware tools, I was able to download all the important and optional updates from Microsoft.
One thing I did (mistake) was to uninstall MSE when working on it, in the hope that I would be able to re-install it.
These are some of the virus I found, Trojan.Vundo and also Trojan.P2P.worm, I am going to paste all the logs from the tools I run on the machine down here:
Please help anyone.
I have used all the tools from bleeping to clean any old antvirus(which I have never had since back 2007), the computer is updated but, I cannot get to install MSE.

I've seen several entries regarding sp1 instalation errors, but none with this one: falat error c0000034 applying update operation
Machine is x64 (intel core i7), with 8gb mem
tried installing sp1 via windows update. there were three patches to install, one of them, sp1
did the two first, before, and then tried sp1.
It failed while rebooting (not remember the code, sorry), but i was able to do a system restore to pre-sp1.
them, got the full SP1 media from msdn, and did install it in offilne mode. Setup looked faster (of course?) and in reboot, this fatal error c0000034 appeared. But this time, no option for system restore.
if i try to enter in safe mode, i get stuck on driver loading (last loaded is classpnp.sys)
if i try to run, as seen in other threads, the sfc tool, i get a "there is a system repair pending which requires a boot to complete..." Of course, reboot just gets me to the 34 error.
As i cannot get to Windows, no InPlace setup is available...
So, i read about DISM could be used as a before-last resourt... How? I'm not sure what this error is, so i'm a bit lost about getting something out of DISM to correct it.
Any help?

Thank you for posting and wanting to help other users, but unfortunately, I had to delete your post. We have found that the steps in this post while allowing you to recover from the non-bootable state, leaves the machine in an unserviceable state, with SP1
partially installed.  There is not a known way to recover a machine from this state at this time, so we recommend that people follow the steps in the KB article which allow you recover the system with Windows SP1 installed successfully. So as not to leave
customers in state which is not serviceable, your post was removed.

It's possible that the SATA drivers aren't recognized during the Windows 7 or 8 extraction portion of setup (In your BIOS may also need to be set with AHCI). Usually Load SATA drivers before actual install begins. May need to look for updates to the drivers at manufacturer's site of motherboard.

Make sure did it correctly look at these, something could be corrupt with ISO you made

So here's the lowdown:

My PC used to run Windows 7 Ultimate (but it wasn't Genuine). To prevent any potential future problems with Windows 10 from Windows 7 Ultimate not being Genuine, I reverted back to Windows 7 Home Premium which I had my product key laying around for.

I did a clean install to make things feel fresh. I backed up all my personal files and stuff to a second partition I made on my 1 TB HDD.

After the clean install I downloaded every update available from Windows Update (including the Microsoft updates). I didn't install any programs or drivers yet, except for my Ethernet driver (as well as any found by Windows Update) so I could download the Windows Updates and Activate Windows 7 Home Premium so it's Genuine. I figured having a more bare-bones OS would cause less compatibility issues with the Windows 10 upgrade. Then I reserved the Windows 10 upgrade in the Get Windows 10 app.

After that, I tried nearly every trick in the book to upgrade to Windows 10 because I didn't want to wait really. The first thing I did was download the Media Creation Tool and used the "upgrade this PC now" option. Everything went without a hitch but then after the first reboot the installation hung at a black screen with a light blue Windows logo.

I figured I just had to wait (even though I saw no light for my hard disk activity), so I dozed off. When I woke up, about 6 hours later... nothing happened.

I tried testing my luck with another upgrade option instead. I used... Read more
