Error Code 0xC0000005 during Windows 8 installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to install Win8 from USB stick onto Acer ICONIA Tablet W500 (http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/LE.RK602.047). After expanding 3% of the installation files I get the following error: 

    “Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation.
    Error Code: 0xC0000005″

    I have performed a force of the chkdsk command (chkdsk C: /f) successfully. I have also ran a memory diagnostic test with Memtest86+ to make sure the ram is stable with success result.

    Any ideas?

  • We have seen some problems with install media not being complete.  I think the best way to try is to re-download the ISO, mount and re-copy the files and try again.  We have had several good installs on teh W500 so I know it can work.
