    Unhappy BSOD while installing Windows 8 with usb

    My PC specs

    Intel i3 Desktop board DH55PJ

    8 Gb Ram

    Nvidia GT 240

    Ok so i did installed Windows 8 Release preview 64bit on this drive before but after few days when i installed Nod32 Antivirus something went wrong and windows started behaving strange.

    So i decided to reinstall windows 8 on the same drive and i first Error Code: 0x80070570 while trying to install.

    "windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation" <-- This is the message

    I did some googling about it and people said do the Check Disk both from the Right click - properties and also from CMD. And Nothing!! No Error found!

    I did the formating several times then i tried to install windows 7 64bit with usb again!! Same error So tried to install Windows 7 32bit Same error again while installing.

    Then i tried to install Windows 8 64bit again and it showed another Error Code 0xc000000f.

    Now!!

    When i boot with Windows 8 usb right during the windows 8 boot splash it gives BSOD and it restarts and doesn't even gives time to see the error.

    Btw i have got on 1 hard disk Windows 7 and on another Ubuntu and had dual boot grub with all 3 OS's and now its all messed up plz help.

    Is the hard disk corrupted and how to fix it?

    Jingle Bells, have you tried another Flash drive?

    "windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation" <-- This is the message"

    This tells me that the installation media is corrupt. I've had this happen with CD/DVD installs also.

    If you have a spare computer, you can remove the HDD & test it with many partitioning tools, most has a surface checker to find bad blocks. Don't do a "quick scan", let it run at it's pace. Use a docking station, or any type of USB backup drive enclosure.

    Some brands of HDD's also has their own diagnostic kit that can be downloaded for free & ran. Usually there's an extended test in there. That may be best, if you can access a computer to download it.

    HD Tune is another good free option, that tests read/write operations, & has a surface checker.

    While you're at it, test that Flash drive first, it may be the problem. After a lot of use, they do wear out. That's why it's best to keep at least 2 or 3 on hand.

    Yes, try installing using another Flash drive.

    Hopefully, you made a copy of your ISO file (sent it to another partition/drive) so that if it becomes corrupt, you have another. I simply sent the entire folder to two places, one to a Data partition, another to a Flash drive, & I believe I still have a copy in my Win 7 Ultimate docs folder, where I had the USB DVD download tool installed.

    These type of things, one cannot have too many of.
