Windows 7: Major Clean Install issues: 0x8007057 and 0x8007005 Errors

Major Clean Install issues: 0x8007057 and 0x8007005 Errors

Hello all,

I recently put this system together:

Trying to install Windows 7 ultimate V64.

MSI P67A-G43 (B3)
Intel I5 2500k
Nvidia GTX 560 Ti SC
2x4GB of Patriot G2 DDR3 RAM
WD 1TB Model: WDBAAZ0010HNC
SATA ASUS DRW-24B1ST

So upon building it, went into BIOS, everything was running great minus my 1666 RAM running at 1333, but I left it there for now.

I had a friend's windows 7 home edition CD, tried installing it and it gave me error code 0x8007005 right as it tried to install after formatting...tried two CDs that are legit non-burns....

I had an old XP 32 bit SP2...tried installing that and after one fail of installation it worked. This was a burned CD so I figured it could have been the drive or the CD that caused the first failure.

After running XP for a few days I created a windows 7 bootable USB HD (I was an engineering student and had an ISO of windows 7 ultimate v64 on my other comp.

Tried booting from the USB drive and at the format stage it says it's unable to format the partition....I reformat the drive with my XP CD and wiped out that OS then retried and it seems to accept the format and starts installing....then it gives me another error after 10% of it's installation has been completed.

I now get this error code 0x8007057!

Any ideas? The HD checks out in disk check and it formatted fine with XP so I can't figure out why it wont format OR install.

I also have read that my CD/DVD drive isn't compatible with Windows 7 but how is that EVEN possible, at any rate I tried disabling it and using the USB device and still got the error.

Nothing else is plugged in other than mouse and keyboard and USB. IF anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Tonight I'll try taking out one of the RAM sticks but I have not read that that is a known issue with Windows 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping it's just a driver issue...

Remove all but 2 gigs of the ram while attempting install and follow this:
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

and then this:
Clean Install Windows 7

That should at least eliminate any possible hardware/formatting issues that may be causing the problem.

Thank you both, I have not tried everything on the list here so I'll take a gander tonight. I thought I did a pretty good job of searching but I guess I was more looking for error code results and didn't see similar problems with the errors I was encountering, or rather, I saw error results but the issue was presenting itself at a different point during installation.

Thank you again guys.

Actually I would say my fellow guru has provided the better set of resources in this instance.
Go ahead and just start with him.

Everyone,

Thank you all for your help.

So after writing zeros to the drive, following various partitioning suggestions, switching harddrives, updating bios pretty much EVERYTHING I could think of and that you guys suggested, I then forgot about the RAM....

Took out one 4Gig stick and of COURSE it magically worked. All that work for something that took 2 minutes to do....I hate computers.
