I've been trying to get a fresh installation of Windows 10 on my laptop via bootable USB with Rufus, but nothing has been working for me. I keep getting the error message "Windows could not format a partition on disk 0. The error occurred while preparing the computer's system volume. Error Code: 0x80070057." I have tried getting rid of the partitions on the hard drive, which worked but gave me the same error code when I tried to install W10. I tried formatting new partitions as well, but it gave me the same error. The way I formatted the USB in Rufus could be a problem, but Im not sure. I formatted it as NTFS and cannot recall if I did a GPT Partitioning for EUFI firmware for the partitioning scheme. Is this the issue? Or is it due to maybe a HDD failure? When it did first fail it gave me a "All boot options are tried" error.

Rufus formats the flash drive as Fat32 (default). Use Fat32 and select GPT partition scheme in the dropdown box. 

 

You should delete all partitions on the drive. You can do this by pressing shift + F10 at the first install window in the image below to bring up a command prompt. Type the following

 

diskpart   -  will open the diskpart command prompt

list disk

select disk X   where X is the disk you are installing windows on

clean              will delete all partitions

exit                 exits out of diskpart

exit                 exits out of command prompt

 

Continue with the install.

I tried that string of commands a few times and the same error code still popped up.  Maybe it is an issue with Rufus since the USB drive was formatted in NTFS?

That could be but I would also run a disk diagnostic on the drive if it still fails using Fat32. Did you also use GPT for a partition scheme in Rufus?

 

In the above set of commands I would also add the following - convert GPT

 

diskpart   -  will open the diskpart command prompt

list disk

select disk X   where X is the disk you are installing windows on

clean              will delete all partitions

convert GPT   initializes the disk as GPT - Make sure UEFI mode is enabled and not Legacy or CSM boot in your UEFI settings

exit                 exits out of diskpart

exit                 exits out of command prompt

 

For doing a disk diagnostic use Rufus and the iso of Parted Magic here.Boot Parted Magic and double click the Disk Health icon on the desktop. Run the short and long tests. You will need to disable SecureBoot in UEFI in order for Parted Magic to boot. If it does not boot then also enable Legacy or CSM boot. You can also pull the hard drive and use an enclosure on a Windows computer using Seatools for Windows to run a disk diagnostic.

I did not.  I will reformat the USB and see if the drive still fails in Fat32.  Ill run that command again with the convert GPT and see how everything goes and check out my disk.
