Setup was unable to create a new system partition

I received two computers, & they are both having identical problems. I am booting from USB and I see the hard drive, but I get this message "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. Searching this there were multiple people that had success with using the disk part utility. I ran the utility twice, on BOTH computers and I was still getting the same errors.

Bạn vẫn xem: setup was unable khổng lồ create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition

I was getting this error message:


I went into disk part và asked for disk attributes & I got that my disk had boot disk set to lớn no.

How bởi vì I change this? I reset my bios, và I removed all devices from the boot sequence except for my HardDrive and my USB that contains Windows 7.

Other notes: With no usb in the computer the computer complains about bootmgr missing, but this is useless because I want to vị a clean install anyway.

I found my solution after about another 5 wasted hours of my life.

I stumbled upon this "fix" on MS"s technet blog

I saw a comment:

I had this error on RTM with the combination of intel 310SSD and Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 USB stick.

Could it be? This particular USB stick being the issue? (I have 3 of these). I tried it on another. Same issue. Took another generic 4GB staples usb from lượt thích 5 years ago... Worked fine.

Kingston. You suck. I don"t know why, but you do.

Side note: Put Ubuntu on the USB. Booted/installed just fine on the Kingston.

You will get:Windows is unable lớn install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001.Replug the USB drive.Click Refresh.Click Next.

Then find "gparted" và try to use it for partitioning the drive.

That might give an initial partition table & partition, which may help in getting things going.

Alternative with Ubuntu;

Open a terminal with CTRL+Alt+T (works in at least 13.10 & 14.04).$ lsblk should display a menu of all attached disks và their partitions. USB-stuff might not appear if you have unmounted it/them (turns off power). Alternatively use gparted above & find the /dev/sdx -similar-looking name of the disk.then do

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx bs=512 count=1which will WIPE the first block (increase count for more) of the disk, which should be the partition table.double checked the commands ;-)

Here are the steps that finally took me to successful proceeding:

Create the boot (and perhaps also root) partition whatever way you prefer — such as using diskpart built-in command (press Shift+F10 in installer at any time, enter help or consult the documentation for the rest), or Unix tools. Be sure to allocate at least 48 MiB; around 24 MiB are user out of default 100 MiB, but there should be some room left for updates. It may also be a good idea to align both partitions on 1 MiB to 16 MiB boundary depending on SSD erase block size, if applicable.

Format the boot partition as NTFS and be sure to label it “System Reserved”. When using Unix command-line tools, one may need to manually specify 512 byte sector kích thước and 4096 byte cluster size (or 8 sectors per cluster); be also sure to check whether the partition type id in partition table is 7, which stands for NTFS and alike.

Install the master boot record and bootloader — either from a live Windows installation or from the installer itself.X:> diskpart # Run disk 0select partition 1active # Mark partition as active.assign letter=BexitX:> bootootsect /nt60 B: /mbr # Install boot record.

Exit the installer (if running it) and reboot the machine. Simply refreshing the partition các mục in installer will not suffice.Start the Windows installer again and select an existing root partition or create one now alongside your boot partition which should be listed as being of type “System” (rather than “Basic” for regular volumes). Upon continuing, the installer should use that boot partition automatically instead of trying to create it.

That should lead to successfull installation. Otherwise, try other solutions.
