Windows 7: Issue with the infamous 0x80070570

17 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Issue with the infamous 0x80070570

Ill start off with the situation;; I am trying to help out a friend with his PC that yesterday lost the OS. When I first got the chance to look at it upon booting it up it went straight to Operating System is Missing. So I went into a windows 7 CD and tried check if the disks are in order and if everything is still there. The computer is a pre built bought system name:
ACER Aspire AX1420G-U5832
Win7 Home Premium 64bit
AMD Athlon II X4 645 Quad-Core
1TB Hard drive
4GB DDR3 Mem
Anyway, after booting into the systems HDD I found out that all the files are still there since the size of free space was only about 500gb. I assume he caught some type of virus that messed his OS up. Either way he said he wanted a fresh install. Since he has a Key for Home Premium included, I tried using the partition that came with the HDD/computer to install which didnt work. I downloaded a Win7 Home Premium from Digital River and put it on a USB
Anyway long story short, I get the code 0x80070570

After hours of googling I found this answer VVV

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals, 

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS: if UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with, or enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module. Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 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, or enter System Recovery Options 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.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt.You are creating the partition here for the purpose of marking it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

This didnt help me either... SO now I put the WD Caviar Green 1TB into my own system
i5 3570k
Asrock z77 extreme 6
670 gtx msi
16gb mushkin enhanced 2x8gb
I unplugged all my drives but the SSD with the OS. Booted in to check if the damn HDD (Caviar Green 1TB) was even good. I formated it to NTFS and diskpart>cleaned it
Now I still get this issue... I dont know what to do anymore. I would love some help ^_^

You quote the steps from Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums which resolve 90% of installation failures. But you don't quote back the verbatim error message and at which step it appears as requested. Verbatim means type it out word-for-word. Either do so now or google it yourself to see how others resolved it.

What was the UEFI and SATA controller settings status of the mobo when you reset it to defaults and checked that step out? Is there a newer BIOS update on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for that model?

Did you run WD Data Lifeguard full diagnostics scan on hard drive from HD Diagnostic list? I'd follow that with full Disk Check Option Two from System Recovery Options Command Line, after formatting the partition using Option 2.2 from SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation which are the same commands as in the tutorial you quote.

Will Win7 install in the other PC with its native HD's unplugged? If so go ahead and then Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD . But if the BIOS settings are not correct (AHCI on both PC's, UEFI if indicated) it won't start anyway.
