@gregrocker,
i did create a partition but still cant install on that partition

So maybe your MB is not compatible with the pata to sata adapter.

What is the make & model of your MB ?
no idea. how can you know the MB make?

There are no SATA ports on your mobo to plug into with SATA cable?

I tried about a million and one things for this "Windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partition 1." error, and what finally did it was removing my new SATA DVD drive and hooking up an old IDE one.

Yes, my *DVD* drive, NOT my hard drive. Weird huh?

I fully expected to still get the error but evidently once the SATA bus was inactive (my hard drive is still an old IDE too) that fixed it (?) Just a guess.

Anyways, now running Win7x64 and loving it! (and yes, my new SATA DVD drive works there just fine)
