Error code 0x80070004 is difficult to explain for Microsoft because of its strange character. There are two known instances wherein you can experience error code 0x80070004. The first one is while you try to upgrade Windows 10 and the installation rolls back to the old operating system. This is caused because of the wrong path of Windows directory. The second reason is difficult to explain as it’s associated with the name of your computer. If your computers name is System, Local, Self or Network you cannot install Windows 10 and error code 0x80070004 will appear no matter what you do. The simple solution for this cause is to simply change the name of your computer.
