This error is reported several times but with no answer anywhere, such as here and there. I tried to install Windows 11 on a Macbook 2017 Retina using Boot Camp Assistant. The device had previously have Windows 11 installed besides Ventura. I give it a 300GB space and everything goes well until I change the registry to bypass the TPM check, and it starts copying files but file copy stops at 5% showing this message:

Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070070

I wonder if the error could be bypassed if Boot Camp installs Windows from USB instead of the internal drive. I tried to manipulate the app content of Info.plist to force it use flash disk, but was stopped by the read-only error.
