0x80070570 is ERROR_FILE_CORRUPT: the file or directory is corrupted
and unreadable. It could be an intermittent problem with your internet
connection when downloading the required packages. Try using the
non-web installer that already includes most of them [1].

I haven't seen this particular error reported on the issue tracker, so
you might want to submit a new issue. Include a zip of the
installation logs for the most recent failed attempt. They're in your
%TEMP% directory with names like "Python 3.5.0 (32-bit)_*.log".

FYI, the severity/facility code 0x8007 determines that 0x0570 is a
Win32 error code. See HRESULT [2] for an overview of how to decode
HRESULT and NTSTATUS [3] codes. See Win32 Error Codes [4] or System
Error Codes [5] for a list of Win32 errors.
