    Can't install Windows 7/8, error 0x80070570


    Hi,
    I've just bought an Asus X201E. I got the linux version, because as a student I get a free MSDN copy of any Windows OS... Long story short, I've been trying both Windows 8 32/64bit and Win 7 32 bit, all of them dosplaying an error during unpacking system files in the installation process @32-42%. I've tried everything, switching the SATA mode to IDE, rebooting, switching flash drives, etc. Since there are X201E models being sold with Windows 8 I figured there would be no problem installing it? Help please, it's really driving me mad..

    All Linux code must be deleted using the CLEAN ALL command.As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all & full format.

    Clean the HD Drive, using Step one in this tutorial:

    Thanks. I tried the "clean" command and then doing a slow format, but I still get the same error.
    Should I try to boot some linux distro to perform a memtest, just in case? It's brand new, but who knows.. Although the original linux booted just fine.

    Okay. Someone told me to switch to a different flash drive model. Before I used an ADATA 16GB, now I stuffed the files into an old slow Kingston DataTraveller II 4GB and it worked like a charm. I thought it could have been caused by one being ntfs and the other fa32, but they're both ntfs. Anyways, thanks.
