    Trying to reinstall Windows. Error error 0x80070057


    Well I've just spent the last week trying to work this out.
    In the general support we decide the problem to my computer not booting is a faulty hard drive. So I cleaned the faulty hard drive and tried install windows on it so see if it wasn't the problem. It didn't install windows so I decided to use a different hard drive. This hard drive has worked before but when I try install windows on it it comes up with error 0x80070057. The same error I get on the 'faulty' hard drive. I'm not doubting any of the people that have helped me (Thanks axe0 for all your help, I can't thank you enough). It's just that it has boggled me and I hope that this section will have more experience with the problem.

    This is the post from general support if you want to see what has happened.
