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

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

Further research found this related to USB 3.0 ports as well. I would guess a driver thing.

Hi guys,

I faced this issue, went through all what was said in forums, played with the BIOS options, created the partition with the command prompt...
I found the solution in a Youtube video.
The issue is related to the USB installation indeed. I used another stick and it worked like a charm.

Hope it will help some not wasting as much time as I did...
