What causes error code 0x8007025d in Windows 10?

  • Damaged installation file: If the image file is corrupt, the installation process may be interrupted. Windows Setup cannot decode some files, which causes this error.
  • Faulty USB drive: The boot device itself may be corrupted. There may be an unreadable or bad sector, which means that the data stored in that sector cannot be read.
  • Faulty HDD or SSD sector: Just as the problem may be with the USB device, problems may also occur with the internal drive. If the drive has a damaged sector, Windows installation will not be able to copy the necessary files to it, resulting in errors like this one.
  • Damaged or corrupted memory: One of the advantages of a clean Windows 10 installation is that it doesn’t compete with other programs for memory space. Since there is nothing on the computer, not even an operating system, the installation can take up all of the system’s memory. However, if the memory is corrupted, this advantage can be lost. In this case, Windows Setup crashes and error 0x8007025D is displayed.
