Windows Cannot Install Required Files 0x8007025D

Windows 10 has come with many perks but has been one of the hardest systems to update to owing to the numerous errors consumers encounter during installation. One of them is error 0x8007025D that appears and halts installation after a certain percentage. Retrying will only give you the same error. Several people who have sought answers from online indicated that they were running a clean install from their USB drive.

This page is going to explain to you why error 0x8007025D appears. The error might be brought by several issues, but they are all related to the USB buffering system. After a brief explanation of what the error means we will the give you the steps to resolve this error.

What is Error 0x8007025D?

According to windows support, 0x8007025D = ERROR_BAD_COMPRESSION_BUFFER = the specified buffer contains ill-formed data. USB 3.0 uses the Message Signaled Interrupt (MSI) mode for communications with the system. USB 2.0 uses the much older Interrupt Request (IRQ) system. One feature of the new MSI system that USB 3.0 devices use is asynchronous handling of data transfer between the device and system. This requires a buffer through which data is streamed to at high data rates (“SuperSpeed”), which is then decoded by the system. If you receive error 0x8007025D then probably your PNY devices are sending bad or corrupted data to the buffers, your device’s buffers are choked or your device can’t decode the data properly. Here are the reasons why you might be receiving this error.

How to Modify Your Hosts File MacOS

Your hosting provider may offer you a temporary URL in the http://IP/~username format (where IP represents the server’s IP address and username represents the cPanel account name) to access your website. This is useful, for example, if you migrate your website to a new server and want to test the site before you point the DNS records to it.

However, some sites will not work with a temporary URL. For those sites, you can configure your workstation with the server’s IP address. To do this, modify your workstation’s /etc/hosts file to use the server’s domain name and IP address.

This document explains how to modify your workstation’s /etc/hosts file.

How To Clear Your DNS Cache on MAC OS


Your DNS cache stores the locations (IP addresses) of web servers that contain web pages which you have recently viewed. If the location of the web server changes before the entry in your DNS cache updates, you can no longer access the site.

If you encounter a large number of HTML 404 error codes, you may need to clear your DNS cache. After you clear your DNS cache, your computer will query nameservers for the new DNS information.

How to Optimize USB Storage for Better Performance on Windows 10

According to Microsoft, Windows 10 no longer optimizes external storage devices for “better performance” as of the October 2018 Update. Instead, it optimizes them for “quick removal.” Here’s what that means—and how to change it if you like.

We don’t think every Windows user has to change this option. Despite how tempting “better performance” sounds, the default “quick removal” policy is fine for most people.

Quick Removal vs. Better Performance

Quick removal and better performance options in Windows 10

Windows has different “policies” you can select for external storage devices connected via USB or Thunderbolt, whether it’s a USB thumb drive or external hard drive. Each individual storage device has its own specific policy setting so that you can select different policies for different devices.

By default, Windows 10 now uses the “quick removal” policy. Whenever you write to the drive, Windows writes the data to the drive as quickly as possible. This ensures you can remove the USB drive without using the “Safely Remove Hardware” option—in theory. A program may be writing to your USB drive in the background anyway, so we recommend against it. This does dramatically reduce the risk of data corruption if you’re in the habit of safely removing storage devices before unplugging them.

However, this can slow down your applications. For example, when you’re saving a file to the external drive, the program you’re using may stop and wait for the save process to finish before you can continue working.

The “Better performance” option eliminates this slowdown. With this option, Windows will cache write operations to the drive and let applications proceed as if they had already written the data. Windows then performs the write operation in the background. That can make applications snappier.

How to Install Chrome OS on Any PC and Turn It Into a Chromebook

Google’s Chrome OS is built on an open-source project named Chromium OS. Google doesn’t offer builds of Chromium OS you can install yourself, but Neverware is a company that takes this open-source code and creates Neverware CloudReady. CloudReady is basically just Chromium OS with a few additional management features and mainstream hardware support, and Neverware sells it directly to schools and businesses that want to run Chrome OS on their existing PCs.

Neverware also offers a free version of CloudReady for home users. It’s basically just Chromium OS modified to work on existing PCs.
