I have a Samsung Ultrabook with a 128GB SDD. I put my Win 7 64 bit on a thumb drive, and ran the installer. I deleted the existing partitions (including the OEM hidden for recovery). I ended up with on 119GB unallocated drive, and clicked next. It progressed to the "copying 0%" window, followed by a "cannot format partition 0 - error 0x80070057".After searching for a few hours and landing here, I tried the clean all routine. When I get to the clean all command, I get "DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".I gave up, booted to Acronis, and restored the original drive image - which worked. But, the fact remains, I cannot get a "clean" retail copy of Windows 7 on this system.

I've just purchased a new desktop Extra Value Desktop PC - Desktops | Ebuyer.com along with an OEM Windows 7 64bit. This is a fresh install on a brand new PC. Every time I get the same error message "windows could not format the partition on disk 0. The error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80070057". I've just removing RAM and still same problem. Even tried install XP and after 3 hours fomating the drive it it came up with this error ""Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged."
I am trying to do a clean install of windows 7 onto my laptop, and I keep getting the error, "windows could not format a partition on disk 0.

A couple of weeks ago a storm blew through and knocked out my power for a moment, then it came back on. Within a few seconds, another wind gust and it ripped our power lines down.Got power back a few days later, and have been busy trying to fix this on my own but to no avail.
My computer booted into system recovery tools, start up problem fixes etc. none of them worked, leading to the decision to format my SSD and try to reinstall windows 7. I get to "windows is copying files" and it stays stuck at 0% for about a minute or two, then I get "Windows could not format a partition on disk 1. The error occured while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x8007057.
I concluded that I should try deleting the partition and creating a new one. That however, got me this message:Failed to delete the selected partition. [Error: 0x8007017].So I decided to try and format the drive, to this result:
Failed to format the selected partition. [Error: 0x8007057].
Same result as when I was trying to install. Puzzles me! I've still got a lot to learn.I've tried removing unnecessary RAM, same results.Having the same problem with a Vista 64 bit install disk, and have tried to install on my SSD and HDD with no differences.

I am trying to install windows 7 ultimate x64 on a new build, I am getting the error in thread title when it begins to install. I've scoured this forum to see what others had similar issues and tried the fixes. I tried with one stick of ram, tried re-burning the iso, i've used 3 different discs one 32 bit the other 2 x64. The funny thing is, I have installed ubuntu 10.10 succesfully from a usb flash drive, but could not install ubuntu from a disc. The ubuntu cd was not a burnt copy but a legit disc i ordered from canonical. the windows install wizard lets me create partitions and delete them, it even looks like it tried to format the hard drive because when i go to attempt to install again evidence of the previous failure is there as a system and primary partition. since the 10.10 installation from flash drive went without a problem i do not believe there is a problem with the hard drive. the dvd drive is sata and is connected properly.
my system info is as follows
amd athlon II x4 630 cpu at 2.8 4gb ram asus m4a78lt-m motherboard wd caviar black 640gb HD sata lite-on dvd multi recorder sata ati xfx 512 mb video card
my boot settings go to the hdd first and i tried using the popup menu to boot from disc, for some reason it looks like it has a problem writing from the dvd drive to the hard disk.
My relatively new seagate harddrive failed on me last week so I requested a replacement. It arrived (refurbished model..) and upon putting it in and trying to install Windows, the following occurs.
After selecting custom install windows attempts to copy files. It hangs at 0% for 10-15 minutes and then spits out an error message stating "Windows could not format a partition on disk 0. The error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80070057".
And then I notice a new 100 mb partition appears. I cannot get by this step. I cannot install windows onto this harddrive. I've done some searching but most solutions require being able to boot into a functioning version of windows, which I cannot as the drive is "new".
The motherboard is an Asrock B75M running Uefi bios The attempted install of windows is Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 The harddrive is a Seagate 1TB drive
In doing a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit), an error appears when it gets to "Expanding Windows Files". Error 0x80070057. Had a look to see if any others had the same problem and many did. I've tried what others have suggested including wiping the hard drive etc etc. Now the strange thing is I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) (same as the one above) already, on the same laptop, with the same hard drive and everything and it installed without a problem!!
Windows 7 automatic update downloads KB2586448 security update and sp1 but install fails. I have been trying to get theese updates on for 8 months. Tried from microsoft website, tried dissabling antivirus, spyware, tried in safe mode.
I normally scan my document directly to the WLM to send it. It was working fine previously but today it gave me the following error:
An unknown error has occurred. Server: 'mail.optusnet.com.au' Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057 Protocol: SMTP Port: 25 Secure(SSL): No
I've tried going offline, delete the file in the outbox then relaunch WLM and go online again but it didnt work. Whenever the scanner finished scanning, attaches the image of the scanned document on the email and it activates the log on screen for Windows Live Messenger as well.

Using MS Fix it Center, I am trying to run the test on Internet Explorer Performance. It tells me an unexpected error occured, the trouble shooting wizard cannot continue. The details give the error code 0x80070057. Forums I have visited don't address the code as it relates to troubleshooting.

I cannot get windows to update. I have used windows update agent fix it tool, but it always gets an error when trying to run it. I have tried turning off all firewalls and AV programs, but still cannot update. When going to services.msc, it shows update service as stopped. when I try to start it, I get the message:
'Windows could not start the windows update service on local computer. Error 0x80070057: the parameter is incorrect.'
When I click check updates under the windows update program, it says cant update due to service not running. I have checked my ipv6 and ipv4, and both are setup to automatic I have tried using tdsskiller to ensure no rootkits are present, and I'm clean. I ran AV scans and spyware scans, but all come up clean. I have ran system file checker, and chkdsk, but both were fine.
I decided to replace my hard drive because it seemed to have viruses that were making it run incredibly slow. I put in a brand new hard drive and proceded to run the Windows 7 Ultimate disk. I got as far as the beginning of the actual installation (after telling it what partition to put it on) and it ran for a few minutes and then I got the errror message 0x80070057.
What do I do now? I decided to replace my existing hard drive as I thought it was damaged due to viruses. I installed a new hard and then used my Windows 7 Ultimate DVD to install. I got as far as the above. If this question has been answered somewhere else on this site
