Windows Server 2012 R2 install error 0x80070570

I have downloaded the ISO from Microsoft's Volume License Service Center multiple times. I have burned many disks, and also tried using the ISO with VirtualBox. I always get the following message part-way through the installation process at the point where it says, "Getting files ready for installation" (which comes after "Copying files"):

Windows cannot install the 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.

Sounds like a corrupted file, have you validated the MD5 checksum.  Also ensure you have updated firmware installed as well as your BIOS is updated.  If you have VMware Player, ESXi or VIrtualBox, you could also confirm if the ISO is good by booting from it.

Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't provide a hash for the ISO, so I can't check that. Like I said, I've booted VirtualBox with it, and the problem continues. I've re-downloaded it several times, and the problem continues.

Maybe the problem is in your RAM where the files are packed to from ISO and then they install from there.

Ok, I can try the same ISO you have for you. Can you share it or give a link where you downloaded it from?

Do you have Microsoft Volume Licensing? I got it from here:

I figured it out. I had been downloading the "core" version of the DVD, and then trying to install the GUI.
