Windows 7: Another runin with 0x80070570

Another runin with 0x80070570

I upgraded last night from a C2D machine to an ivy bridge i5 (MSI z77a-g45, i5-3570k, 4X4GB Patriot PC3 12800 kit). Previously, I was running off a OCZ Solid 3 SSD, with a second OCZ Solid 3 as a cache/swap/temp drive.

New hardware is all in and appears to be running fine, however I can't clean install windows 7 on the SSDs.

AHCI SATA is enabled and MBR created, but every time I go to install it either returns an error during the extraction step (error code 0x80070570, or error code 0xc0000005) or it just blue screens shortly after. Same thing happens with both SSDs.

Most entries suggest that the first error code is symptomatic of bad memory. I one by one tried with each DIMM. No go.

I was able to install Windows onto a HDD with no problems (with all 16GB installed), so it seems to be related to the SSDs (though with my Core2 system the same drives worked).

Any ideas what's going on? Thanks!

Unplug all but 2gb RAM to try install. You can replace RAM afterwards. Then test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Try writing the official ISO to flash stick to boot and install: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Reset BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI to try install, then IDE mode. Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

If there is an EFI boot disk in BIOS Boot Order, remove it. Set SSD first to boot in BIOS setup, then use one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen to boot DVD or flash stick.

Fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of post.

Well, they're 4GB DIMMs, but I've tried each one individually.

I'm not sure I understand how it could be a memory error when it installs fine onto a HDD. Seems to be directly associated with SSD.

I'll try that. It's a disk I burned a couple years ago from my OEM.

I've tried it both ways (AHCI, IDE). Only other peripherals are video and network. I'll unplug the network card, but need the video (monitor is DVI).

Does this mean it's a Factory Recovery disk? What download does your OEM provide?

Do you have a COA sticker on the machine with readable Product Key?

Not any more; that machine is gone. Before I got rid of it, I created a W7 disk from the install. I have that product key. It's what I used to install with the previous system and last night with the HDD.

How did you create a Windows 7 disk from an installation? It requires an installer ISO file which is nowhere present in a Win7 installation.

Was this departed installation Factory OEM or retail OEM? Either cannot migrate beyond the original mobo they were installed upon. Only Full or Upgrade retail versions can migrate.

It's possible I downloaded it from digital river. Honestly I don't remember. It is a legitimate copy though, and has worked on my previous home-brew system (on SSD) as well as this one (not on SSD).

What license do you own? Retail OEM, Upgrade or Full version? Where is the Product Key located?

I suspect Retail OEM (from Dell). Product key is on a piece of paper I have with the install disk...

If this came with a Dell computer then it is locked to that mobo.

Did you pay retail for the disk as it might be a Dell branded Upgrade version which can also migrate like other Windows retail media? Did the key come from the COA sticker affixed to machine, or was it provided by Dell as would indicate a retail software purchase?

Have you installed it on other mobos successfully? Did it require a phone call to activate?

You can call or chat with Dell Support to find out if it can migrate or you can try installing it to see if it will activate - especially if it has migrated successfully before.
