Hi Sorry just seen your Edit about ntfs.sys:

Run chkdsk /f/r in an elevated command prompt.

Disk Check

Quote:
Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
At the command prompt please type: chkdsk /f/r
(Note: there is a space between chkdsk and /f/r)
cheers

Firstly try this:

Quote:
When you see the error "0x80070570 can't access files" --> Cancel the install ---> you will be returned to the "Install Now" startup screen and - WITHOUT REBOOTING - just re-start the install.
See if that lets you install?

If not take memtest again. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.
If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.
1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.
2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.
If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.
In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed
Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

Well, I'm running memtest right now. 8 minutes in and so far it found 9984 errors. Huh. I guess that must've been the problem.

Hi Humor,

Ok, well let it run, follow the procedure, and you should be able to determine bad Ram from good, and let me know how you get on.

Just perhaps boot with one good known stick for now and see if you can boot into windows.

Also run the SFC if you successfully boot.

Cheers

Alright, I ran all of the memtests and found out that one stick is bad, so I replaced that pair with a new pair and have successfully done a clean install of Windows. I'm currently updating and SFC can't be run because of it ("Another servicing or repair operation is currently running. Wait for this to finish and run sfc again"). As of right now, my computer has been running for about 2 hours. So far everything is working nicely. Replacing the sticks seemed to have fixed the problem. Will post again if I run into anything. Also, if you'd still like for me to run the SFC test when the updates are finished, I can do that. Anyway, thanks for the help! You've saved me! Oh, I'd also like to ask what causes a RAM stick to go bad like that? It's worked for months without problems and I'm just curious about it.

Hi Humor,

Great news
you wont have to run SFC now that you have carried out a clean install.

Ram can go bad for many a reason, overclocking, age, power surges, temperature etc.

Use the computer for a few days or so and if you feel the issue has been resolved, please mark solved.

Thanks

Dave
