Disk 0 was my SSD raid 0
Disk 1 was a 1 terrabyte disk NTFS

Unplugging the Disk 1 fixed the problem.

Thanks!!

I only just joined this forum to say thanks for the help with the 00024 problem. I disconnected all drives except the one I wanted to install on (obviously) and problem solved. Cheers chaps.

Fix error 080300024

This error messages may appear because the Windows 7 RC system has problems with Grub (Linux) boot loader present or previously present on the system. And to fix this error you should run the Windows 7 setup do a FixMBR so Windows 7 can write a fresh bootloader.

a link that can help you

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

Just to FYI anyone. I've been using OEM Windows 7 64bit Home Premium just fine. Until today everything was working fine. Today I installed 2 2tb hard drives while removing my other 3 drives from the machine and in doing so it's given me nothing but trouble for over 12 hours. I've been trying to dual boot Windows 7 and Kubuntu 10.10 on one drive and ended up giving up. I've decided to do a straight W7 install but I noticed that the drive that I was trying to make my W7 C: was showing as Disk 1 not 0. I moved the cables around and got that to show correctly, but when I tried to install W7 I then got this error. After moving this back to Disk 1 I could Install even with my second 2TB drive connected. For some reason W7 does not like to be installed on Disk 0 on SATA at least.
