Same issue on my side... 

Same for me
Are you trying to install it using the Windows Update or manual installation?
Are you able to download and install other updates?
Try open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report this issue.

I'm trying to install from Windows Update. Seems to have stopped working after this update :

Update Stack Package - (Version 721.1203.211.0) on 12/10/2021

Make sure report this issue using the Feedback Hub app.
Take a look at:

@Reza_Ameri it does not work!!!

Open start and search for cmd or command prompt and right click and run it as administrator and then type the following command:

sfc /scannow

Press enter and let it runs.


Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

So what I can do next?

Make sure report this issue using the Feedback Hub app.

@shanyi i got this error and it was because i didn't have enough room on my SSD 

I'm just going to add on to Seymour's post a bit since this was my issue as well - mine was a "download" error (as opposed to an "install" error) for today's "Windows 11 Insider Preview 25179.1000 (rs_prerelease)". I got the error when I had ≈24GB free on my OS drive, but it ran fine after disabling hibernate, bringing my freespace to ≈30GB.


After delete unnessesary files, there are space of 24gB. I can download update Windows 11 now.

@shanyi i am also trying to install build 25179 but i also get the same error what do i do



I've suffer this problem too, I think it maybe caused from a disk spaces not enough.

After trying disk clean, the Windows 11 Insider Preview could install smoothly.


Note. My system drive available spaces is over 24GB













↑↑↑Installation complete...

If you want to clean your drive of unnecessary files but don't want to download a third-party program, here's how to do it with Microsoft's built-in Disk Cleanup. This is shown under Windows 10 but should work with others.



Hello shanyi,


Error 0x80070001 is a Windows system error or a Windows update error - it can be initiated by a problem with the Windows update components or malfunction in your system. This error occurs during Windows installation, download, and Windows backup and restore.


However, here are some reasons for the occurrence of an error,

  • Incorrect or failed installation or uninstallation of any Windows software
  • Invalid registry entries in the Windows registry
  • Missing DLL files or Corrupt system files
  • Corrupted programs and apps


In order to fix the issue, you can follow the below-given steps,


Clear the Windows Update Cache:


  • Firstly, Stop Windows Update from services:
  • Then, click Start, type services.msc, and right-click it.
  • Next, when the Services app appears, click “Run as administrator.”
  • Now, on the list of Windows services, locate Windows Update.
  • Lastly, right-click Windows Update, then click Stop.


Now to Clear the Windows cache navigate to the Software Distribution folder:


  • Firstly, press the Win logo + R keys to open the Run dialog.

Restart Windows Update services:

  • Navigate to Windows Services from services.msc.
  • Then, locate the Windows Update service.
  • Lastly, right-click on Windows Update and select Start.

Reset Winsock Library:


The WinSock kernel and system library is a TCP/IP client-side implementation that permits Windows apps to communicate over a network.


  • Firstly, open the command prompt with Admin rights.
  • Then, type the below command and hit Enter to process further.

netsh winsock

  • Lastly, restart your PC when asked for and check the connection status.


Re-install the TCP/IP Stack Protocol:


TCP/IP protocol is a fundamental piece of software in any Microsoft-based operating system used to connect to websites, servers, and other computers.

  • Firstly, press the Windows logo + X keys, and from the pop-up window, select Device Manager.
  • Now, right-click on your network adapter, press Uninstall, and confirm.
  • Then, open Control Panel and navigate to Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings.
  • Next, right-click your network adapter, press Install, and confirm it on the UAC dialog.
  • Lastly, restart your device.


Run a System File Checker Scan Tool:

  • Firstly, click on Start, type cmd, and a command prompt will appear
  • Now, right-click on Command Prompt to open with Administrator rights
  • Next, click Yes on the user account dialogue box.
  • Then, type the below command and hit Enter to process further:

SFC /scannow

Note: You will have to wait till the process gets complete

  • Lastly, restart the Windows system


I hope the above fixes help you to resolve the Install error - 0x80070001 without getting any error in a new installation.
