    I've no experience with this specifically, but usually IO errors are are due to disk writing inaccessibility - could be permissions or disk/filesystem errors - I'd suggest run chkdsk /f /r from a cmd prompt, then try that PS cmd again.

    Don't use that Powershell command anymore.
    It has been known to "break" instead of "fix."

    My suggestion :
    Do a Repair Install.
