can not install fresh copy of win 7

i had Windows 7 in my system but i wanted to format the drive and install a new fresh copy, so i went ahead and i started Windows 7 dvd and i have to mention that the hdd that i had my old win installed in was a partition of a 1tb hdd and it's divided into(195GB &750GB), so my system was installed in the 195GB partition. then i went into installation and i formated the 195GB hdd and when i hit next it gives me this meassage "Windows is unable to install to the selected location (Disk1 Partition1). Error 0x80300024". please help me install Windows 7 again!!

do you have any ways of getting backups of your data? if so, I recommend doing a re partitioning by deleting any of those existing partitions.

Hi,

What is on the other 750GB partition? Do you perhaps have another OS installed to this 750GB partition?

Is there another separate hard disk on this system?

Regards,
Golden

Yes, Kaktussoft is correct, hence the request about the other HDD. Often the system files will try to span across more than a single disk during an install. Unplug DISK0 as suggested, and then install.

You should have only have 1 drive connected when you begin the install.

I assume this is a single drive system with multiple partitions. If that is true, you have nothing to unplug.

On the other hand, if you have 2 drives, unplug the one that you don't want to have Windows.
