Did you burn the cd after downloading from microsfot etc yourself or is it a retail copy?

Try it again and write the error code down,it could be a driver its missing,which you will need to get and load manually by click Install>Advanced>Load Driver

Are you upgrading or a clean install?

"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart installation. Error code 0x80070570". That's the exact error message

I've seen this before. It's probably caused by a read error from your dvd drive. If you have another computer and a 4 gb flash drive or an external HDD available, try copying all the files from the dvd to the flash drive (be sure to format it to factory default settings) then set the bios in your target computer to boot from usb. Be sure to connect it before powering on.. that should eliminate the error
