Windows 7: Error code 0x8007045D during Windows 7 Professional x64 Installation

Yes with the no jumper default setting it didn't work. When I connected pins 5 and 6 it just worked like it should. http://www.wdc.com/global/products/s...894&language=1 . According to this page, my HDD uses a 6GB/s Interface and with PHY enabled it seems to use a 3GB/s Interface. Whatever caused the Error before, it was gone when I enabled PHY. I think I will try the Installation again, when I have a SATAIII cable . Maybe it'll work without pins 5 and 6 connected then.

Re-reading the thread I notice no one asked if you have a UEFI mobo as would seem to be the case with a new mobo. If so it requires special steps to install to UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums or Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7.

A big thank you for this thread, I had exactly the same problem, Error code: 0x80070057 & Error code: 0x8007045D on endless repeat, everything pointed to the WD10EZEX, it worked as a ntfs formatted second drive but Win7 install couldn't format a partition and copy files. Tried the "Designed for SATA3 6Gb/s" cable that came in the motherboard box and bingo everything works.

Isn't it true that even with a UEFI motherboard as long as the drive you are installing to is formatted MBR, you will get a conventional (MBR boot) installation? I think you are implying this in one of your posts.
Anyway this has been my experience with my UEFI motherboard. A UEFI BIOS motherboard can enjoy the enhanced benefits but for me this with an MBR boot is fine. Maybe a discussion topic for elsewhere.

I believe with most UEFI mobos you'll need to enable Legacy Mode or Compability Support Module (CSM) to boot an MBR drive, but this can vary with the make/model.

These settings also may allow for booting both GPT (in UEFI) or MBR disks but I don't think it can be counted on that a UEFI mobo will allow MBR boot by default.

Ray?

I guess it varies. My ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe doesn't seem have these setting options.
