Windows 7: Win 7 0x80070570 install error

Win 7 0x80070570 install error

Been getting this error for the past few days. I have tried just about every recommendation I've seen on this error; Ive gone through 8 sticks of RAM, multiple ISO's and burns, USB install, different DVD drives, removing all extra USB devices, 2 video cards, multiple HDD's, canceling the install before it errors out and then restarting, all without luck. Anybody have any other ideas? Using a Maximus IV Extreme Z, no overclock.

Use 2gb of RAM for install. Test your RAM using memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight. Then when known good, test good stick in all slots to test slots: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Where did you get the ISO? Try slow burning DVD at 4x speed with ImgBurn once you confirm the ISO hash against official Win7 HASH: Windows 7 RTM SHA-1 hash - checksums.
Win7 SP1 hashes are on TechNet Download page under details for each download and accessible even if not subscriber.

Next try writing ISO to flash using this simple tool with Win7 in dropdown: Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux

Next check for BIOS update for mobo. If none, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.
While in BIOS setup set SATA controller to AHCI to try install.

Next try wiping the HD for possible boot corruption: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

As a last resort, move HD to another computer to install. SysPrep install before moving back to problem computer: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

Hello Jmatt110, welcome to Seven Forums!

From a quick Google, it would probably be best to boot the Windows 7 installation media to completely wipe secure erase the entire Hard Disk Drive before you start the clean install again from there, be sure to have a look at the guide at the second link below about creating/formatting/marking Active partition(s) from diskpart to install to.

THanks for the replies. I forgot to mention a few things in the OP (it was late).

RAM is not the problem, I've done a secure erase, installation media is fine (used the same one for 10+ W7 installs, legitimate image from MSDNAA), this mobo only has 1 BIOS so far because its so new, CMOS has been cleared, SATA controller is on AHCI.

Everything in the PC is working fine and has been used in W7 installed before, the issue only started after I got the new motherboard, just wanted to know if theres anything I haven't tried before I RMA it. I'll try the install another PC then move it over tonight.

I know you said RAM is not the problem in OP, which is why I focused on testing the RAM slots in case you hadn't.

Try IDE mode.

Try Sysprepping an install done in another machine. See if it will start up.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Error 0x80070570 or 0x8007000d on Win7 x64 install

Hi There,

I have decided to provide my feedback to the forlum considering that this forum is what gave me the leads and ideas to find the solution to my problem FOR GOOD.

The reason why I say for good is because I'd do things to make the problem go away for the installation part, but when it came to installing SP1, the same errors were reappearing.

Error 0x80070570 while Win7 x64 is installing and extracting files at either 0%, 2% or 9% (anytime really)
Error 0x8007000d while Win7 x64 is installing and extracting files at 0%
Error 0x8007000d while installing Win7 x64 SP1

Why am I re-installing:
I have a Patriot Torqx2 128GB SSD that I want to install Win7 Ultimate x64 on.

Things I've tried:
Changing the mode of the SATA controller from IDE, AHCI to RAID
Using Active KillDisk application to populate the whole drive with zeros#
Changing CD ROM drives
Changing BIOS
Changing other BIOS settings
When error occurred during the installation, just wait for install to go back to "Click to Install" and try again WITHOUT REBOOTING.
Test the RAM

What happened:
When I used KillDisk for the SSD, it took 2 hours to clean the drive and the installation went smoothly. However, when I tried to install SP1 on a vanilla install with nothing else installed the error 0x8007000d would show up. Even for the SP1 readiness tool application.

Changing the SATA controller settings did not help and in actual fact, made it worse if I was changing the settings AFTER successful installation.

I tried what alot of people on the forum suggested and that was if the error in the installation appeared, just wait for the install disk to go back to "click to install" and try again WITHOUT REBOOTING. This actually gave me a BSOD with error "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" which gave me the idea to the ultimate final thing that I didn't try.

The solution:
I had one now seems to me an odd accumulated RAM capacity combination.

The system I was trying to run:
Gigabyte GA-EX38 DQ6
Intel Q6600
Geforce 9800GTX
1 x Patriot Troqx2 128GB SSD on Gigabyte SATA controller in RAID mode
4 x 2TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 drives (RAID 1 so 2 logical drives)
2 x 2048MHz XMS28500 Corsair Dominator 1066MHz sticks
2 x 1024MHz XMS28500 Corsair Dominator 1066MHz sticks

All of the RAM sticks work fine and its not faulty but I realised that having 6GB RAM might be an odd number because usually, you see 2GB, 4GB or 8GB but never 6! So I took the 2 x 1024MB RAM sticks OUT from the system.

Without changing any settings whatsoever, the installation went from constant error 0x80070570, to a successful install.

I am not sure if putting the 2 x 1024MB sticks back after the installation will be OK, but I am considering selling my Corsair Dominator 2 x 1024MB sticks and purchase a pair of 2 x 2048MB sticks to take the system up to 8GB.

Does anyone have any thoughts why MS Win7 Ultimate x64 would have problems with a 6GB RAM config and if there is a fix? The system is working fine, but just curious why the limitation.

Sometimes you need to remove all but 2gb RAM to try install. Did you try that?

4gbs worked fine so if i removed 2gb, a 2gbs system would work too. I actually think that windows7 only likes ram configs of multiples of 2 to the power of n. So 2, 4, 8gbs etc. It doesn't like 6gb ram configuration for example and if you do manage to get past this problem, guess what, installing sp1 will give you a similar headache. Been there.

The RAM is removed only to try install to see if it will proceed. It can be replaced afterward.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Yes I agree too. But the point is that if I restore my system to 6gb ram, I will face a similar if not the same error when trying to install win 7 sp1... All other windows updates work fine except the win sp readiness tool and sp1 itself no matter what if i put those 2 x 1gb sticks in.
