Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Can't install Windows 8!

I'm getting extremely upset because when I try to do a fresh install of Windows 8, it says "Windows 8 we couldn't install windows in the location you chose. please check your media drive. here's more info about what happened: 0x80300024" and I've already formatted the disk that Windows 7 was on because I'm trying to get Windows 8 on it.

I've already done:









STILL! Nothing! Plus, there's a partition from C: or Disk 0 (The one I've formatted through CMD) it's around 700 MB. Why is this doing this?!

yup go to, you'll get better guidance there.
And go for 8.1 now, as 8 is already outdated.

Sorry guys, you can delete this. I figured out I had a 32-bit version and not a 64-bit. It's working now.
