Do you 0x81070201?


 You may face this error when creating a custom list based on a custom list definition:

Exception from HRESULT: 0x81070201   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.CreateListFromFormPost(String bstrUrl, String& pbstrGuid, String& pbstrNextUrl)
   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.CreateListFromFormPost(String bstrUrl, String& pbstrGuid, String& pbstrNextUrl) 

if so, it would be trivial, as the log can leave a useful message:

Failed to retrieve the list schema for feature be9cdda4-ed32-4bbd-a60c-8041158b1430, list template 17001; expected to find it at: “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Template\Feature …
