Media Creation Tool Error – 0x80070456 – 0xA0019 when using USB formatted NTFS

media-creation-tool-errorI ran into this error tonight and was looking all over for solutions before I bothered to check the logs.  The online “Solutions” were anything but.  Troubleshooting step #1 read log files.  Solution was to reformat USB to Fat32.

Error

After you wait all the time required to download the ISO and it starts to create the USB drive you get an error 0x8007456 – 0xA0019

If you browse to C:\$WINDOWS.~WS\Sources\Panther you will see two log files.

This error means the source location was not writeable.  Low and behold my USB drive was formatted NTFS.

Fix

Reformat the USB drive to Fat32.

That’s it.   Nothing more complicated.

 

 

I did a bunch of internet searching and found this thread.

I am sad to say the fixes proposed might work for corrupt files.. but the issue is clear as mud in the log above.  Just need to make the USB readable by formatting to Fat32.

  1. Thank you so much, I reformatted my USB drive to NTFS after I bricked it earlier without realising I needed it to be FAT32.

  3. Thank you so much, Sir!!! Unlike most advice I’ve had to search out because of various failures on my PC, and my lack of technical knowledge, this worked perfectly, and easily! That’s so rare!!

  4. It would be nice if they probed the drive BEFORE spending an hour downloading, or at least cached the download for a while. Anyway, this was indeed the problem and easy enough to fix – thanks!

  5. Thanks a lot! After searching through a couple of forums and other blogs, yours was the first that really provided the solution. Should have thought of it myself though – shame on me.
