Error 0x80070570 during installation

Hello,

I recently built a rig (spec below) and originally installed windows 7.

I decided today I would install windows 8.1 as I get it for free from my university. I booted the installation disc in EFI mode, wiped the SSD and deleted all partitions. I let windows create the partitions it needs and proceeded to install.


The installation got up to 2% in expanding windows files and showed error:
Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure that all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code: 0x800070570.

I rebooted and tried again several times and the same thing happened whether I chose EFI cd boot or not.

I then reinstalled windows 7 without any issues, and downloaded an 8.1 pro disc image from mydigitallife. The installation got a little further into expanding windows files, but the same error came up again.

Ive been reading that it may be a memory issue so i'm the process of reinstalling windows 7 and running memtest86+, but I doubt this is the case as its a mew system and windows 7 has no trouble

If anyone can shed any more light on why I am having this problem I would be much appreciated

Regards.

System Spec:
Mobo: Asus P8 Z77-V LX2
CPU: Intel i7 2600k (no overclock)
RAM: Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600mhz (one module)
GPU: GeForce 650Ti

Thanks for you reply,

I just had a run over that thread and I actually did everything exactly like that each time I tried installing.

I forgot to mention I am trying to install on a solid state drive. I think its a Samsung but I wont be able to check until memtest has finished.

Regards.

Well just checked memtest this morning, on its eighth hour it's found over 1,700,000 errors, and it's not finished yet haha.

Ordering more RAM.

Is it better to have one module of 8GB or two modules of 4GB or even four modules of 2GB? Could anyone explain the benefits of whichever is better?

Regards

Into the 15th hour and seeing over 3 million errors. What coukd have caused such damage to a machine no older than 4 months?
