Windows 7: Can't Do Fresh Install on New SSD

Can't Do Fresh Install on New SSD

I was put in charge of building a buddy's computer recently. I have been having a bit of an issue with it.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I have been trying to install that on his new rig. I have a 240 GB SSD that I am trying to install it on. The first one lead me to believe it was a faulty SSD and I sent it back to Newegg and they gave me a new one. I tried installing today, brand new SSD had to set a partition and everything, and I am still getting the same error as the last one. I will be posting everything that I see below, as well as what his rig looks like.

PNY 240 GB SSD SATA 6Gb/s
MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
PNY Optima 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model MD8192SD3-1333
AMD FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz (4.0GHz) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
Rosewill Stallion Series RD600 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
SAPPHIRE 100358-2L Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Error Message:
Gets through opening steps fine, then while "Expanding Windows files" it says the following;
"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570"

Not the SSD?
Maybe bad media?
Got this once ages ago it was bad media, re-downloaded the .iso and burned a new DVD, plus re-seated ram in a new build.

Yep, more then likely bad disc.

Where did you get this Windows Ultimate disc ?

Is it Retail ?

Has it been tested on another machine ?

Or as one of the articles say, could also be a bad read, ie. a failing laser on a CD/DVD ROM.

I have used this before on my computer (quite recently) and installed first time with no issue. It leads me to believe that the issue is elsewhere, because it had the same problem trying to install Ubuntu.

Re-seating RAM and will post back.

EDIT: I swapped the RAM to a different slot and also I would like to add that I am installing this from an .iso on a flash drive.

Follow up from previous post:

Swapped the RAM to another spot, still same error code. I had read somewhere it could be bad RAM? Not sure if that is a possibility, but I am desperate at this time.

2 different OSs, dirty disc, or a bad read from a failing optical.

Then I'll pass this to other members, as my one attempt to load an OS
from flashdrive didn't work, so I returned to burning ROMs, being an old fart.

There have been others on here who tried a flashdrive and had problems, but then switched to a DVD and it installed. You might give it a try. This tutorial explains both methods.
