    Can't install windows 8 on new computer


    I just setup my new gaming pc, and windows won't install if my life depended on it. I've tried USB and disk installation and neither work. I always get error 0x80070570 as it is installing, I swear if it happens again I'm gonna go crazy. So yea any help would be fine I'm sort of new to this.

    You can download windows 8.1 setup media, using the link in my sig below..

    You will have to input your retail product key and when you get to the partition screen, remove every partition
    And allow windows setup to use the unallocated space
