    I get error code 0x80070570 during Windows 7 installation from USB flash drive. The installation files were copied from an DVD+R I burned of the ISO I downloaded. Any ideas how to resolve this 0x80070570 error?

    TIA

    Is a file name provided with the 0x80070570? If so, it means setup cannot access that file.

    At which point of the installation process does the error occur?

    Which files did you copy to the flash drive?

    Has the computer ever had an OS installed? If so, which OS? If so, did you reformat the HDD, or are you installing Win 7 in a multiple boot situation?

    Please provide the PC's specifications for:
    CPU
    memory / ram
    HDD
    motherboard

    SOLVED: I stumbled across this article/post (http://alcantu.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!33D0C8BDE1D71C4F!204.entry) and basically did the reverse of what he did to solve his 0x80070570 error. I attached USB CD/DVD drive with Win7 disc, booted from USB flash drive, chose repair, command prompt, changed directory to CD/DVD drive with Win7 disc and ran setup.exe from there and voila it installed successfully, no errors at all.
