Windows 7: Setup was unable to create a new system partition - I can not create p

Test your HD with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

If it tests OK then unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup to enable Legacy BIOS if present. Next check BIOS Boot order for an EFI Boot Disk and if present remove it, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

That's OK, just continue with the steps. If it installs, while it's installing then read again Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 closely so you understand how to handle drivers in Windows 7.

I just put a normal HD format on this same machine and usually formatted and installed windows. It seems to be problem with hard drives, but the 8 very strange not work.

Friend, I just pass the HD Diagnostic, appeared the following sentence and not continued:

"DRIVE IS LOCKED"

All these hds I got to format is an internet company, was it locked so it can not do anything or create a partition?

thanks...

Try this program. I have never used it, but it sounds promising.

When did the message that the drive is locked appear? I asked you to report back at which step it failed.

Try the Diskpart Clean Command steps you were given to wipe the HD:

Appears when I send a scan extended.

Giving error in this part:
"CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400" > "diskpart has encountered an error the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error"
