Are you trying to install windows or create the USB?

At what stage of install does it show that? Its a windows update error, so if you can install win 10 without a lan connection, it might get past this.

For users who experience Error Code 0x8007041d, there are several steps that can be taken to resolve the issue. If the following methods are not successful for you or if you are unsure of your ability to undertake them on your own, contact a qualified Windows 10 computer technician.

Here are the best ways to attempt to fix Error Code 0x8007041d on your computer:

Method 1: Remove Additional Security Software Apart from Windows Defender

In some cases, having multiple versions of malware or antivirus software installed on your computer can cause the Windows system to create conflicts between them, which can interfere with your ability to update. During the update process, the system may attempt to determine if there is any malware present, and having multiple kinds of antivirus software present on the same machine may return mixed results.

If you currently are running antivirus software that is separate from Windows Defender, consider removing it from your computer prior to running the update software. This may allow you to successfully complete your update process without conflict. Additional software can be reinstalled after the update is complete, but make sure to keep both sets of software up to date in order to lessen the chances of encountering this error code again during future updates.

Method 2: Update Your Windows Defender Software

If you currently have Windows Defender as your primary antivirus software, check to see whether it is fully up to date. Out of date antivirus software can cause conflicts with the Windows Update process, since the update to Windows 10 will not be able to be completed unless the system is free from viruses or malware.

If you are unsure of whether or not your Windows Defender is up to date, open it and run the process to check for updates, then re-attempt to run Windows Update. In some cases, you may want to restart your computer before running the Windows 10 Update process a second time.

Method 3: Run the Registry Repair Tool

Another issue that could cause Error Code 0x8007041d is a problem in the system registry. If you believe that this may be the case, run the Windows Registry Repair Tool on your machine to check for and resolve any issues. This is a fairly simple and straightforward tool to use, but it can help you to resolve any number of problems that may interfere with your ability to update your Windows 10 software.

If you have taken the steps listed above, restart your computer before attempting to proceed with the Windows Update process. If the three methods listed above are not successful in completely resolving Error Code 0x8007041d on your machine or if you are not comfortable in your ability to implement these steps on your own, contact a qualified Windows repair technician who is familiar with the Windows Update process to assist you.

I want to install Windows on the USB Drive because i want to install it on a New PC without OS.
After i click "Next", it shows the typical message "Preparing..." but it doesn't even start, and 5 minutes later it shows the error.

Yes, i heard that you can use RUFUS to install Windows by USB Drive too, instead using a DVD, but won't it cause any problems to the hard drive later? Thank you.

rufus just installs the ISO onto the USB, it still needs a copy of the ISO as you still need to run Media Creation tool to make it, which would just recreate that error.

The problem isn't the install process, its the creation process.
