Windows 7: Fresh Install (due to new MOBO) Error 0x80070570

Fresh Install (due to new MOBO) Error 0x80070570

Hey Sevenforums,

About a year ago I decided to build my first computer. I did so and there was much rejoicing. That is until it started BSODing everywhere when I played video games or watched Netflix.

Coming to your forums I was encouraged to do a memtest, got new RAM, for a while the problem was fixed (provided to used only one stick on the MOBO) and there was much rejoicing.

Then the BSOD's came back. I believed it to be the motherboard (an ASROCK extreme3 Gen3 Z68) and so I went a purchase a new one. Unfortunately the Micro Center sales person sold me an mATX which I didn't even notice... but I'm attempting to do a fresh install of windows 64 bit professional.

At first I was getting an error that said I couldn't install windows on a GPT hard drive. After deleting all partitions using the Windows Install Interface, I was able to create a new partition and attempted to install and that's where I am now. Sitting here with this 0x80070570 error code. I've googled it but none of the solutions I've found were of any use.

Additionally, after attempting to boot my computer up post-installing everything to the new motherboard the computer wouldn't go to a splash screen. When I removed my GTX 680 (EVGA) card it went to BIOS and posted just fine.

Any help would be appreciated... Thanks!

Update: I attempted to use Disk Part in Command Prompt to clean all disks, but that didn't work, saying a clean is not allowed ont he disk containing the current boot. So I truly am stuck. I have no idea what to do...

I don't have any other CD-ROM drive I could try and I've tried to install the OS with two separate disks, both of which I've used in the past and they have never given me these issues.

Well, for anyone out there who finds this, I solved the issue. I ended up swapping the new motherboard with my old one, but changing the RAM. This resolved the issue and allowed me to install Windows cleanly with no errors. Not sure why...

Whether the new ram with the original mother board will prevent the BSODs... time will tell. Good luck, and sorry for the forum pollution.
