Cannot install Server 2012 – The file may be corrupt or missing. Error code:0x80070570

For disclosure – No such issues on VMWare Workstation 9 and i got the ISO to eventually install on the old desktop by burning it at 4x…… I could not however get it to install on Workstation 8 without enabling the VT extensions.

While trying to install Server 2012 on both VMWare Workstation 8 and an oldish desktop, I found myself repeatedly running into: “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. Error code: 0x80070570”.

Various online resources blamed ISO’s, bad memory etc. But seemed odd that i saw the same message on old desktop and VM and listed out what these two machines were missing that the server i had installed it on successfully did have…. Then i realised, VT extensions.

So i went into the VM properties (see picture below), enabled virtualisatin of VT extensions and lo and behold a successful install in VMWare Workstation.

    Yup, I’ve been getting this same error when trying to put it on a PC I have for testing. I had the the same problem after downloading the .iso again so I’m not sure what else to try.
