I am just wondering if 8gb is enough space for the installer to expand into when running. Pretty sure I tell people to use a 16gb drive now, as the latest installer is bigger than it used to be

one thing that might help is to follow the fix here - https://windowsreport.com/fix-error-0x80070456-0xa0019/

another fix is to format usb before running MCT
open command prompt with admin rights
Type diskpart and press enter
Type list disk and press enter
This will show the list of drives currently attached to PC, make note of the drive number of the USB drive

In this example, the USb is Disk 2
select disk 2 <enter>
clean<enter>
convert mbr <enter>
create partition primary <enter>
format fs=fat32 quick <enter>
active<enter>
assign<enter>

then try running the Tool again

Try running the creation tool as admin. Right click it when you start and choose more..., run as afmin
