    0x80070570 on 8.1 Clean install from USB


    OK, so I'm having this issue with Lenovo G500 (500+8GB SSHD, 4GB RAM, UEFI).
    I'm trying to install Windows 8.1 (x64) on this laptop for three days now.
    I tried different methods for creating a bootable USB drive (Rufus, WinToFlash, manual), in both UEFI and BIOS (Legacy) modes, both got me a 0x80070570 (missing or corrupt file).
    I have the official ISO from Microsoft DreamSpark and I tried around three other downloadable images of Win8.1 in both modes, all gave me the error at some point of Step2. I also tried various UEFI configurations, SATA compatibility mode etc.

    Please don't point me to this site's tutorials (create bootable drive and doing a clean install), tried them all with no success.

    I also can't remove RAM sticks (some suggest that), my computer is still under warranty and I want it to stay that way.

    Thanks in advance.

    OK, mistaken. It's an SSHD. Editing the OP, that was a dumb bail.

    The SSD part/partition should not even come up as windows install option, it's just cache for SSHD. It should not be visible to installation at all.

    If starting from beginning any version should do, I think that UEFI needs to be on GPT not MBR disk.

    x64 will not install on a 32bit system.. 32Bit will install on a 32 bit or 64 bit system..
