Hi William,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

  • Where are you downloading Windows 10 from (the link)?

I would suggest you to check if there is any file in the USB flash drive because it has be to be empty and minimum space of 4GB. If there is any file in it, I would suggest you to save it and then format it.

Start downloading the tool first and once downloaded, right click the tool and Run as Administrator.

Kindly refer to: Download Windows 10

Let us know the result, we'll be happy to assist you further.

I had the same problem, I did everything, swapped out the USB drive (8GB completly fresh), formatted it to FAT32, exFAT and NTSF and nothing worked. Windows 7 Pro N SP1

Same problem too downloading through Windows 7 x64 to 8GB USB stick.  Tried downloading both Windows 10 Pro versions to stick which says requires only 6GB and also tried just downloading x64 version which says requires 3GB.  Same error in each instance, "Something happened 0x80070005 - 0xA0019"

I note that the USB stick volume name has been changed to "ESD-USB".

Have tried stick in USB 3.0 & 2 slots of PC.

The DVD iso file did download OK but have no media at present to burn this to DVD-R.

Download the iso file and then use Rufus (recommended and free) to make a bootable USB drive.

Thanks Gordon - that worked.  First time I tried it had problems writing to the USB stick - may have been the previous format by mediacreator so prior to second go fully reformatted the stick, then it got stuck writing the "autorun.inf" so disabled my Trend AVS and it finally wrote the complete iso file on third attempt without any further problems.

I got the same Probleme,

i think the problem was, that my  antivirus program blocks the autorun.inf on the usb device. So the files cant get copied to the usb device ... and  on 100% the error occure.

I deactivated the realtime scanner of my antivirus programm and it works.

I got the same problem but with deactivating the autorun.inf from my antivirus pgm Avira it worked perfectly.

I also tried the version with the ISO file with using the Rufus pgm and this option worked fine as well. For Rufus I used MBR partition .. for UEFI, FAT32, 16 KB and selected 2, 3 and the 4the option.

thanks for all your input.

I have tried 2 different 16GB USB flash drives. I have formatted and tried multiple times. I have run the tool directly to the USB, I have tried converting the ISO file to a USB, nothing works. I get error messages like this:"There was a problem running this tool. We're not sure what happened, but we're unable to run this tool on your PC. If you continue experiencing problems, reference the error code when contacting customer support. Error code: 0x80070005 - 0xA0019

What do I do? What is going on? I need to install Windows 10 on a laptop with no dvd drive. I want to create a bootable Windows installation USB drive for x64.
