So I thought I'd be cool and ditch the dvd drive for the new build...
Intel I3 8100
Gigbyte h370 mbob
G skill rip Jaws 2x4gb 2400 ram.

First major issue is it won't install w10 off the retail USB. You go through and get to install and it has an error can't install. Anyone else had this issue with the USB? Should I take it back and ask for a dvd.... I have no other way of making a w10 ISO to boot with..
I've tried all the USB ports just in case it was some issue with USB 2/3.

Yup it starts to boot off the USB and loads the windows install... I enter my product key and click install...
It starts to install and when I get to the second row "preparing your files for install" it crashes with a 80070570 error.

Looking in the gigabyte bios the ram seems OK but the only thing I'm not sure of is its 2400 ram but shows on the bios as running at 2150ish. Maybe I need to change ram timing?
I tried throwing in a w7 install from dvd but of course the USB keyboard won't respond on w7 so that stopped that.

Where did you get usb from? If you have another computer and another usb I'd try creating a different install media to rule out usb stick corruption

I'd try a new USB (either get that one replaced, or download the image on another computer and copy it to a new USB drive).

 

The error refers to a corrupt file or folder.

 

I suppose it could also be your hard drive, but if it is happening at the same point during the install, I think it would point to the install media.

Boot the USB stick, and do shift F10 at the first prompt to get to a command prompt and then google up how to use diskpart to check that it can see your SSD you are trying to install to. If it can then clean all the partitions off a drive.

Is the target drive a new or used drive?

troubleshooting 101

 

make a new UFD using the Media Creation Tool from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

Your retail key could be faulty

 

Trying from another key should tell you whether its the key or your PC

Going to sound odd as well, but are you plugging the USB directly to the ports on the back of the motherboard, or via a front/side USB port ?

 

If front/side, try the rear ones.

This thread reminds me of my adventures in trying to install Windows from a usb. I have had many issues and I think successful installs were in the region of 20%.about 1 in 5 times my usb installation encountered an issue. From wrong version of media to usb port issues etc

But not this. Sounds like hopefully a corrupt install media.

I've installed Win10 hundreds and hundreds of times - probably over 500 times by now I'd think, and not once had an issue with USB install media. 

I've always used ADATA USB 3.0 flash drives, using the Windows Media Creation Tool to create the bootable media. Front ports, rear ports, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB-C adapter, USB hubs....literally not one issue. 

unless you have some faulty hardware (SSD issue, faulty RAM for example) it's almost got to be the supplied drive. 

Try making your own using the MCT

It sounds like its a problem with your target/destination install drive/partition.

 

 

I agree with richms advice, double check where you're installing to. Make sure the drive is healthy, and format/re-partition the destination drive if possible.

 

 

EDIT: Googled the error message, and its some kind of corruption? Run a memtest, make sure your RAM is not erroring.

Agreed with this, I am going to go with the RAM being at fault.

 

Download memtest to a flash drive and test your RAM.

 

Highly doubt it's the USB.

Well it was......

The usb


I downloaded a new iso to another USB and it loaded no problem.

So in the testing I pulled and reseated both the cpu and ram without success.
What made me wonder about ram was the fault code and the fact it was double booting but once I got w10 installed and updated the mobo drivers that seems to have stopped.
Cheers guys
