Windows 7: 0x80070570 Error Code on install - One Easy Solution

Glad to hear it.

I'd want to install 64 bit with 4 GB RAM or else .5 GB will not be used.

Be aware that McAfee is also one of the worst problems we see here. Everything that works best is in the clean reinstall tutorial beneath picture below.

Hi, i'm trying to solve this issue too. Please refer to this thread i posted in another forum. Any other solution out there?

I tried installing using 1 working ram stick in 1 slot and still get the same error message.

Windows 10 Pro x64

I had a customer that brought me a PC that the hard drive had crashed on. He had purchased a new hard drive, and wanted me to load Windows 10 on it. Every time I started the install, at the "Getting files ready for installation" step, the PC would pop-up an error with 0x8007025D error. Exact error said:

“Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570.”
I spent the better part of the day troubleshooting until I narrowed it down to bad memory modules. I changed out the RAM and it installed without a hitch.

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to share my experience in hopes that it may help someone else.

I reached this solution after deciding to try installing Windows 7 instead of 10 (that is what the original hard drive was running) and that install crashed with the same error. I dug through Internet forums and found all sorts of suggestions to fix this issue - everything from reformatting/replacing the hard drive (this was a brand new 2TB hard drive, and I had tried two other known good hard drives) to updating the BIOS (already done).

I finally stumbled on a site that suggested this error is caused by a memory misconfiguration, and suggested leaving only one stick of RAM in the first slot on the motherboard and trying again. Since I had extra memory on-hand, I just replaced both memory modules and tried again, and I was able to install Windows 10 without issue.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Hey gang, I got this problem on an old HP Small Form Factor Business machine. I fixed it by going into the bios > STORAGE> STORAGE OPTIONS> and switch the SATA Emulation from LEGACY(IDE) to NATIVE(AHCI). Good luck!
