Unable to upgrade to Windows 10 - Windows updater error 0x80070057

Q: Unable to upgrade to Windows 10 - Windows updater error 0x80070057

Hi all,

I have tried a number of times now to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. It always fails and puts out an error WindowsUpdate_C0000005.

I did a search on this error which recommended using the Windows Updater Repair which I have done. However at the end of this it states it is unable to fix Windows Updater Error 0x80070057.
Another search done led me to https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/53a1f2ab-037b-438e-a690-00a0e745730d/windows-7-update-error-0x80070057?forum=w7itprogeneral which suggests using RegEdit to fix the problem however the keys that
are referenced in this don't exist for me.
Any thoughts here?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I bought a new SSD (PNY 120gb) and planned a full complete clean install of Windows.

Since I planned on installing Windows 7 64 bits on it and start over from there, I unplugged all other drives as well as useless USB peripherals. I even removed 8gb outta my 16gb setup.

Went in BIOS and set the SSD as AHCI (or something like that). Rebooted on Windows 7 DVD. Pressed SHIFT+F10.

In the Command Prompt, I did the following command:





Quote:
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0
DETAIL DISK (to make sure you got the hard disk)
CLEAN
EXIT
EXIT (this one gets you back into the install program.


Then went on and clicked INSTALL.
Chose my disk, then selected NEXT.

Then boom. Windows Cannot be installed on this disk (Error 0x80070057).

The Disk 0 is really the SSD, not the DVD drive.

I tried doing, in the Command Prompt,





Quote:
select disk 0
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs


It failed at 100% complete with this message: "Diskpart has encountered an error: The parameter is incorrect. See the System Event Log for more information."

So I rebooted, pressed SHIFT-F10 at the "Install" part and tried this command;





Quote:
diskpart
list disk
select disk 0
clean all
create partition primary
select partition
active
list volume
select volume 1
format fs=ntfs


But it still gives me the same error

And before going to bed, I tried this command:

First of all - welcome to BC !
 
It is always a help if, when you have a problem like this, you give the make and model of the computer involved or, if you built it yourself, the main component specs, and which flavour of operating system you are using.
 
If this problem is of fairly recent origin, the simplest cure is to try a Restore, to take you back to a point in time before the problem started. If you have never done this before :-
 
Click on 'Start - Control panel - Recovery'. This will open the System restore dialogue. You will see a large button 'Open system restore', click on this. After a few seconds you will see a box with a 'Next' button, click this, and you will come to the screen where you choose which restore point you wish to use. Very often you will only be offered one choice, the latest restore point. If this predates the start of your problem, select it and click 'Next' and continue with the restore process.
 
If this restore point does NOT precede the time the problem started, there is a button on the left hand side to show more restore points. Click on this and choose an appropriate one, then click 'Next' and carry on as before. Once the restore starts it will take a few minutes, and when it has finished it may ask you to re-boot. Re-boot anyway.
 
While this process does not affect your data, only the operating system, it is always a good idea to back up your data before doing any operation like this. Once it is completed, you wi... Read more

Hello, i have a custom built pc with an MSI motherboard and a western digital 500gb hard drive. My pc's bios is in cmos setup. The layout of the bios (ui) is alot different from other uefi but standered to usual custom builds. I also bought a legit microsoft copy of windows 7 home premium 64bit for oem builders. The error i am having is during the installation process. I found that there was no security in my bios for secure boot so thats not the case. I booted my pc via cd drive. It started up with no errors. I Deleted all the partitions from windows 8/8.1 during win7 installation and started from a fresh unallocated partition. I made a new system partiton with the 100mb and here comes the error. Whether I click next or format the primary partition drive. It gives me that error saying that it cant format the selected partition [0x80070057]. I even deleted and recreated the partions but nothing. I have gotten it to install almost all the way through a couple of days ago. The computer reset and then booted up and said that the registry was not found or created. Thats as far as i have been in the installation process. Any knowledge or help is appreciated thanks.

Ok here is my situation.

Specs:

Graphics: AMD Sapphire 380 Nitro 4 GB
Ram: 8 gigs
HDD:
WD Blue 1TB Desktop 3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm Internal Hard Drive
Situation:

I recently have had problems with slowdown on my custom gaming PC. I ended up taking it all apart and cleaning it and put it back together and when I did, it would not connect to the monitor. I ended up taking it to a computer repair shop and they updated my BIOS and everything seemed to work. They noted the harddrive had failed some tests, but it was still working fine.

I got my computer back but it was still running slow. I noticed in the BIOS that the CPU was heating to 75 C while idling. I reapplied thermal paste and it cooled it down and everything seemed normal again.

I was playing Counter-Strike Global Offensive and suddenly my entire computer freezes and crashes. When
I try to boot my computer back up, it goes past the windows logo screen but freezes at the windows log in screen but without the log in boxes. It just has the blue background (not BSOD).

Thinking it was my HDD failing (it was a 1TB Seagate 7200 RPM model) I bought a Western Digital Blue 1 TB hard drive.

Hi,

In doing a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit), an error appears when it gets to "Expanding Windows Files". Error 0x80070057. Had a look to see if any others had the same problem and many did. I've tried what others have suggested including wiping the hard drive etc etc. Now the strange thing is I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) (same as the one above) already, on the same laptop, with the same hard drive and everything and it installed without a problem!!!

Can someone help me or atleast explain to me why it won't install now even after being installed before?

I've had windows 7 64 on my system for the last 6 or 7 years? However long it's been out and it's been completely fine.

I moved everything over to a Samsung 840 Evo about a year ago and everything was great.

I moved everything over to a Saumsung 850 Pro about 6 months ago and my system has crashed literally about 10 times at this point. I have used Samsung's Secure Erase to reset the SSD every time before a new install.

Everything will work fine for X amount of days, weeks etc until Windows does some kind of automatic update and crashes my computer, it will not reboot, it will not repair. I will attach a pic of what it does during this problem, running lines and lines of the following code in the attached pic.

Now trying to reinstall windows AGAIN, it completely REFUSES to do so - and I have 2 SSD's I'm trying this on and getting the exact same 0x80070057 error code.

I've deleted the partitions, created new ones and still getting this error code on BOTH SSDs. I've tried this step 5 times. It will not install.

What is the problem and is there any way to fix this? I don't understand why windows has been constantly crashing these last few months, but it has completely pushed me away from wanting to use it at all.

Hi Folks,

I have managed to manually install the .NET Framework 4.6.1 (via this link to KB 3102438: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=49981).

I have run the Windows Update Troubleshooter several times (link: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9830262) and I always get the same error - see image below.

I have also run the System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821) from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=20858 several times and also the EasyFix 50205.msi

When I run Windows Update - all I get is the following (and after an hour of "no progress", I give up).

I ran a full AV scan yesterday after updating the definitions files (Kaspersky Total Security 16.0.0.614e) and a Malwarebytes scan - again after updating - both found no threat.

I have also run sfc (System File Checker) three times from an elevated command prompt (after re-boot each time) and have no reported "integrity violations".

Getting short of things to try.

CPU: Core 2 Duo T5800 2GHz with 4GB RAM.

Hi,I am running windows 7 professional (final release) just downloaded from msdn-aa of my university.First thing I checked was the backup feature, since I was really unsatisfied with vista's one.I did a backup, choosing those few folders I needed to backup and run it.The process halted before completion and gave me this error:"An internal error has occurred:The parameter is incorrect: (0x80070057)"Now, every time I try to use the backup feature (by clicking on start -> all programs -> maintenance -> Backup and restore) I immediately see this error window, and I can't do anything.

A:Internal error 0x80070057 (Backup windows 7)

This issue might be due to a bad sector located at the very end of volume that you are trying to backup.
 
However, as a workaround you can try the following methods:
 
A, If you save the backup files in the first 750GB hard drive, you can save the backup files in second 300GB hard drive with letter E to test this issue. However, if you save the backup files in second 300GB hard drive with letter E firstly, you can try to save the backup files in first 750GB hard drive with letter C or D.
B,  Run check disk to check the hard drive
 
Note: Please ensure that the DVD-ROM is the first booting device.
 
1. Please insert the Windows 7 DVD and reboot the computer.
 
2. When we are prompted to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press Enter or the space bar.
 
3. Click "Next" and click "Repair your computer".

This is hard to answer since the problem description leaves no answer other than something changed with your PC between "previously" and "today". You need to expiriment with other ways to send the image using WLM to see what works and what doesn't work. For example, signed-in or not, as attachment, insert inline, send a page by email using your browser. You can also repair Windows Live Essentials, or reset your default programs.

Windows 7 Home Premium
Dual boot Visa and Windows 7 (C: drive and G: drive respectively)
Backup to external hard drive (159 GB of free space)


I have lost the capability of using Windows 7's Backup and Retore program. When I first installed Window 7 it worked and I was able to back up my files and create an image (to an external hard drive). All other Windows applets appear to run without problems.

When I run the Backup and Restore program I get a almost blank window - all that is in the window are the words "Backup and Restore File". I also have a system tray message stating "Check your backup (important)" but when I click on this message to access the backup program I get a message stating "The parameter is incorrect" /"Try again" /"Change backup options". Clicking on "Change backup options" gives me a further error message stating "The backup application could not start due to an internal error: The parameter is incorrect".

First I tried running sfc /scannow from the command prompt (with administrator privileges) but that did not fix the problem. I then ran chkdks /f and this did not fix the problem. So I used the "upgrade" option on my Windows 7 installation disk to repair my Windows 7 installation. It took about 1 hour to go through this process but it did not cure the problem.

Has anybody got any idea what I should do next?

Seen a couple of posts on here regarding this Error. I've tried SO MUCH to try and resolve it over the past few days.

Basically, I bought a new drive a few days ago for a new PC build - bought two actually. SSD + HDD.

Installed windows onto the SSD as my main boot drive obviously, but when I try to install it onto the secondary HDD drive it doesnt allow me to format the drive to do it, or doesnt allow to install the OS on the system. It was working for a day or two, then stopped. So I tried to clean and reinstall.

It does register the drive on the system, I've also tried replacing both the SATA cable & the SATA Power Cable with no luck.

I've also tried most of the steps listed from the other threads. Such as deleting the partition and remaking it using the Disk Management Tool, tried accessing diskpart through CMD. It registers there, but doesnt allow me to clean it and reformat it to ntfs to install it. Just continues to stay as RAW format, and I'm completely unsure about how to change this.

I've also tried it in another SATA port, tried checking the RAM etc, all that works fine with no problems as I can boot from the SSD fine. Plus I've tried formatting the drive manually through CMD, which completed, but said it did it with some errors, but didnt make any change to the situation.

not really sure what to do now in regard to fixing the issue, and starting to have some doubts the drive might be on the road to failing on me, which seems kinda odd considering it's... Read more

Oh don't get me wrong I know how to fix that error but the problem is, is that whenever Iget to the formatting process of windows 7 installation it literally freezes and tiles itself with blue lines or something. NO THR RAM AND HDD IS NOT CORRUPTED/BROKEN I have ran multiple tests. The error from formatting is x80070057 and I have tried EVERY SINGLE DISKPART AND BOOTSEC COMMANDS ON THE INTERNET. I have also tried startup repair etc. I booted gparted and it said "Your PNP bios is causing a fatal error" I can't even install a Linux Debian without the formatting process freezing. I also tried booting from CD but it doesn't boot from CD. THE BIOS HAS NO OPTION TO CHANGE AHCII or something like that. I conclude that the bios needs to be updated but I cant do it without a windows Os. There have been over 7 versions of the HP dv 66466us and the change log even states it fixes these problems. The bios comes in a self extracting exe. There is no .bin file. I don't know of its possible to flash the bios with usb without a .bin or something If you have any suggestions please do post. My final plan is to find a hard drive with windows on it, replace the bios. If you guys have any info I coul d use please post

Hi, I'm having this problem every time I try and run system restore from the Windows Recovery Environment (F8).

This started after I extended my System Reserved partition from 100 to 200mb using Easeus Partition Master 9 . I did this because I kept getting an error when trying to run System Image Backup

The full error message I get is this:

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's files and settings were not changed.

Details:
System Restore failed while scanning the file system on the drive D:\
The drive might be corrupt. You might want to retry System Restore after running chkdsk/R on this disk.

I have tried doing a startup repair and it found no errors. I have also tried chkdsk /R on all partitions and tried the SFC which found no errors.

I was also getting this error when i tried to run system restore from within windows but I found a hotfix from microsoft which solved that issue. So it's just the problem running it from Windows RE now.

Can anyone please help with this? As I am unsure how to fix it.

My problem is the following : On my Dell laptop (Inspiron N5010) i installed 2 antiviruses (avira and norton) and suddenly after this, my pc kept crashing (blue screen and all).
The way i was able to fix this was simply by running diagnostics and restarting the computer.
After a week, the computer completely failed, the blue screen of death appeared this time, i had to reinstall windows 7. I didnt know how to, so we called an experienced pc guy who fixed it, using a windows 7 professional 64 bit (instead of home premium) disc as boot. All was fine, until a week after the guy had done this : The computer shutdown suddenly and i was unable to access anything, except the bios menu (and window 7 logo ).
I then used the same disk the guy used (he gave it to us) to reinstall the os.
I did the steps as he did (i promise), but the installation got stuck a 14 %, and said : Error 0x8007045D invalid file or...etc...
I searched on the internet and othe forums, and found the following answers :

1--> The ISO file i used was corrupted
2--> My HDD was broken

So, i kept trying to fix the 1st problem, with no success ( i downloaded at least 4 different windows 7 home premium 64 bit isos and tried to install them with usb)
But same failure : error 0x8007045D
please advise me what to do, what steps i should do to try and make one of the isos work, because abandonning the HDD will be the last thing i will try :/

Never run two AV's, especially when one is Norton Bloatware.

I would uninstall both as a test and install recommended Microsoft Security Essentials.

You'll need to run the special uninstall tool for grossly bloated AV's: Uninstallers (removal tools) for common Windows antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

If this fails then try to System Restore back to before you installed the two AV's when it was working correctly.

If that fails then download, install and decline trial for Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads
then run full scans with both.

Folllow that with SFC /SCANNOW Command.

Hope you guys are having a good day.

Having a few issues with my computer at the moment. I previously had a different issue with Windows Update ( Error 80072efe ) but earlier today i managed to somehow fix it and was able to download Service Pack 1, which was what the error was on. All other updates before it (20) all installed successfully. Unfortunately shortly after doing so and restarting, Windows Update now continues to search for a very long time, it has been hours to no avail or progress whatsoever.

I have tried a SFC Scan which showed no issues.

System restoring to before the Service Pack update was normal, but eventually i had to download it again and the issue persisted.

I have used the Windows Update Troubleshooter and it has detected error 0x80070057, along with Service Registration is missing or Corrupt. Before the system restore it did not have the missing/corrupted Service Registration.

I have scanned for rootkits. (there is none to be found)

Another note is that ive had this computer for a long time now, although I have performed a low level format just yesterday so this computer isnt cluttered anymore.

Would a CBS log be handy at this point? Thanks if you can help!

Never seen the command Detail disk, once you`ve Selected Disk 0, that`s it, you are on Disk 0

Once you select Disk 0 you even get a prompt saying "Disk 0 is now the selected Disk" then you do your thing.

That should be the only disk connected to the system during an install anyway, so that`s all that will show up.

You could just make and use a Partition Wizard Boot CD, it`s so much easier to setup a Disk for a windows install.

Hi there, in January 2012 I removed a virus with MalwareBytes and cleaned my computer. I did not have any issues until a few weeks ago when I noticed a Trojan that kept appearing in my scans. I would remove, and it would come back. In checking how this was getting through my firewall, I noticed that my firewall was disabled as well as windows updates. I have tried restoring missing registry keys, including BITS, with some success, and have been running FSS scans per the advice I have seen in other threads. However, at this point, I have come to the end of what I can do. I still cannot turn on the firewall. Updates have just now started to work and are installing.

A:Satellite L50-B-1DV Win8.1 - Windows Update Error Message 0x80070057

Hi

You have mentioned the error 0x80070057 while update installation.
This error occurs due to multiple reasons and therefore it?s not easy to say why this happens exactly. But the most common cause could be the missconfigured registry or damaged system reserved partition.

My recommendation for workaround:
Try to repair the system and the registry using CCLeaner. You could use this freeware software for registry cleaning as well as to remove the ?system garabage?.

If this does not help, try to repair the OS using the system?s own options.
The "Automatic Repair" option attempts automatically to diagnose and fix problems that may cause Windows 8 not to start or having a different wrong behavior.
Automatic Repair will start automatically when Windows is unable to start properly. If it detects any problems, it will automatically attempt to fix it but it can also be started manually.

Access to Automatic Repair can be found on the Windows 8 start screen. Now "Advanced" in the search box. When the search results appears click on the "Settings" category.

Now click on the option "Advanced startup options" and you will see the "General PC Settings screen". Look for the option "Advanced startup". Click on the restart now button and Windows 8 will restart your computer to access directly the Advanced startup menu.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look at this tutorial, which explains how to optimize a hard drive before you install Windows to it.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

You may also have to consider that the drive you are using may be faulty or that you are missing drive controller drivers.

As a matter of interest, why didn't you run a virus scan before trashing your old hard drive? A virus will mess up your Windows OS, but it shouldn't damage the hard drive, so replacing the drive seems a bit extreme.

Right-click on the application and select “Run as administrator”
Choose “Yes” when asked to confirm

Method 2: From a Windows install/repair disc
Boot into the install/repair disc and wait for it to load
Choose “Repair my computer”
Select “Command Prompt”

Type diskpart and press enter.
Enter list disk and note the number of the disk you want to install on.
Enter select disk n n is the number of the disk.
Enter list partition and note the number of the partition you want to install on.
Enter select partition n n is the number of the partition.
Enter active
You can now close the command prompt and re-attempt installation.

Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,
when it finished checking, Windows Update continued to report that there were no pending important updates.
At that point, I concluded that something was wrong with Windows Update. In an attempt to fix it, I downloaded and ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab). It reported one problem found: "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P)

2nd phase (driver installation) halts at 25% (40% total) and reboots recovering windows 7 and showing Error 0xC1900101 0x30018 t failed in operation "FIRST_BOOT", ... SYSPREP at startup.
Windows 7 installation from which I start is a clean one, no AV, no apps, nohing.
Any idea anybody?

Thanks
Stefano
