I'm getting this error when trying to install windows 7 rc x64:
"Setup couldn't create new system partition"
Then it asks me to check the setup log, but I don't know how.
Trying to install onto the 2nd partition of a 160 gb drive, split in half. It's disk 0, the first partition is active primary and has XP. The second partition is formatted ntfs primary and when I select it in windows setup, that's when I get the error message. I let windows 7 delete it and create a new partition and formatted it, but when I select it to install windows onto, it give me the above message.
It's a SATA drive running in native IDE mode on an AMD790GX board with a Phenom II X4 940 and 4 GB RAM.
It doesn't seem like it would be a drivers issues, since Windows sees the drive and both partitions, allows me to delete, create and format partitions, just won't let me install onto it. Any ideas?
