Windows 7: Setup was unable to create a new system partition

Boot the installer not the hard drive.

Delete all partitions to create and format new during install.

If this fails follow the Overcomng Installation Failures tutorial below.

Would changing SATA from ACHI to IDE change anything?

Ok.

I have this issue. I have read through every post and tried every suggested thing and the error still occurs.

I have a samsung laptop which came with a System Recovery Disc (including windows 7 home premium sp1 and all their junk software i assume) so I put it all on a bootable USB stick and loaded it up.

The installer goes fine until I get to the part where you need to pick the partition to install on. No matter what process from here I follow, it always comes back with the same error.

It is an SSD drive so I even looked into the SSD stuff but nothing is working for me.

Sounds like you might have a clean copy of Win7 with only the Samsung branding and activation but not the smothering bloatware - all of that would not fit on one DVD. So let's see if we can get it to work, but if not download Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1 English Official ISO download and use the Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool to burn to DVD or write to bootable flash stick to try that.

First work through these steps for Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums. Report back results.

In addition look over these steps for doing a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 because you will get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the steps, tools and methods given.

Sorry i was missing the bios one time boot menu option which I have now done.. and followed the other steps and when it came to installing it was saying something about missing drivers needed to continue? I'm trying the iso thing now and I'll let you know.

Almost always means your installer is bad. Is the disk scratched or dirty? When was it last working?

Start over with the installer for your licensed version provided.

I will do that.. but my main worry is on my samsung box, and on this CD I can not find any sort of CD Key for the install... I assume that will be an issue soon.

Read Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 as if you have a Samsung laptop which came with Win7 then it should have the COA sticker pictured in Step 6.

The disk would likely have activation baked in unless you bought it separately to upgrade.

What is your exact Samsung model number on the Samsung sticker? Put it in the specs in bottom right corner of posts.
