I didn't try to create a partition, the partition showed up in Windows Installer, and it came back with the same error.

Yes I ran the commands you gave me earlier.
Can not be both.
Sorry. What I meant was I didn't create a partition in Windows Installer.

I just put this HDD into another Samsung Laptop and when installing Windows I get the same error.
I tried installing Windows on that laptop's HDD and didn't get an error.
Hope this helps!

After making the first partition in Drive Options.
What type of partitioning do you have A or B

Install to partition 2, not the System Reserved partition.

If i have to create those three partitions, What file systems should I use for the three partitions?

Who said anything about using Parted Magic?

You've been given very specific steps to follow which need to be completed precisely as given, but half of the steps have not been responded to so we don't know what's been done.

If you've gotten the same problem in another laptop but not with another HD then test your HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, followed by Disk Check run from the installer's Command Line after running the full set of commands I gave you earlier to create a partition.
