Windows 7: Error 0x80300001

Error 0x80300001

Hi,

I'm not very used to this so I'm a bit lost... My computer has two disks. Everytime I try to tell it to format the partitions I create from them and then install W7 on one of those partitions, it tells me it can't and gives me this error code: 0x80300001. I just don't know what to do.

I don't even know if I will be able to access the second internal disk drive after the installation. Is there a particular setup like SCSI or RAID or something?

I thank you in advance.

Welcome to Windows 7 forum.
The stated error code from your post is as follows:

marginallleger, are your disks SATA? Actually, can you complete the System Specs, that will make it easier for members to help you. That error seems to be related to drivers for your HDDs
Are you booting from the install DVD? You seem to be trying a clean install, have you let Win7 format the partiton you want to install to?

that error code means windows is unable to install to that location. can you tell me about the HD's are they primary partitions, or dynamic? Is there an OS on them? We will get you working its just a little insane tonight.

I am assuming if you are trying to use the disk options to format the drive prior to installing, you have a full version of the software. I don't believe an upgrade version will work that way.

Hi,

I cannot get rid of this error. My system does not see the raid drive until I put the usb stick with the driver in and load the driver. Then I get this stupid error for “Windows cannot install to Disk 1…” details show this error code. I have tried opening and closing the disk tray at different phases, clicked on refresh, pulled the usb stick, made the raid array the first disk priority, created a new partition, formatted the partition… can’t get rid of it.

The strange thing is that I have successfully installed to this system before. Same mobo, drives, driver, usb stick. The only thing different is I transplanted the guts to a new box. Now I can’t install.

Anyone have any ideas?
