Windows 7: clean install failure (0x80070570 error) on a lenoveo t410s w ssd

clean install failure (0x80070570 error) on a lenoveo t410s w ssd

Hi there,

So I have spent the last few days troubleshooting the problem, I have tried most of the solutions I have found online, but still I get the 0x80070570 error at 14% of the install process. I have reformatted the hd prior to trying as well.

some random observations:
I have run hd diagnostics and everything passed
I notice that in the BIOS setup utility that there are 3 SATA HDDs listed though I only have the one 'internal one' and no peripherals
I have downloaded and burned (and burned to USB) the .ISO file about five times with the same result
I haven't tried removing RAM because I only have one chip (4 gb) and I assume I cant have 'no' RAM to proceed

As I am sure you can imagine, it is driving me absolutely crazy.

Any help would be hugely appreciated, even on Christmas Eve!

Thanks for reading,

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS if present. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk and if present remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

Sounds like a bad installer. Is this an original Windows 7 DVD or did you burn it yourself? Start over with a new ISO for your licensed version from the link given in last post, then burn to DVD or write to flash stick using the tool also given.

If DVD fails again, try the flash stick method. If that fails, unplug the DVD drive.

I've tried both dvd and usb boots repeatedly with different downloads of the install disk that I downloaded from the usual links so I don't think its an installer issue.
In your instructions to remove any EFI boot disks, I don't see a way to do that. I have one option to change it but it seems like a universal setting to go from ahci(?) to compatibility. I have the boot order right, but I don't see a way to change any settings of individual drives in the BIOS setup other than the boot order...

It should be such a simple process...

Download only from the official link and burn to a good quality DVD with ImgBurn - CNET at 4x speed.

Next try writing the same ISO download to stick using How To Use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works for me if others fail.

If these fail post back the exact error message, wipe the HD again.

So I think I have tried all possible permutations of the instructions given here and elsewhere, and the install still fails, with the 0x80070570 error, but now I get a BSOD when I hit escape out of that error. the message i referenced ntfs.sys, datestamp 4ce792f9... This was from running the install from a USB with the recommended source of the ISO... THe only think I am not sure about is how I have handled the BIOS setup utility (questions on that are in my posts above.

Any more suggestions?

Thanks for your help and merry Christmas

Do you have an EFI BIOS? If so did you try install to UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums before trying to bypass EFI using the steps I gave you earlier?

Have you tested the RAM - Test with Memtest86+? Try reseating the RAM, checking for debris in slot and cleaning the contacts.

Finally try moving the HD to another PC to install plugged in alone, then SysPrep to move HD to another computer before moving back to problem PC.

Windows7Pro 64
Win7 PRO 64 reinstall

I was reinstalling Windows 7 on my daughter's SYX i7 gaming computer. The file corrupt error was occuring at different percentages as the files were expanding. I connected the harddrive to a HP AMD 64 processor and was successful in installing Windows 7. Ran sysrep and moved the harddrive back to the SYX to complete the setup.
Process worked great, thanks for the advice
