Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hey guys,

I known for instance that this error did happened to a lot of people but the same error has different solutions depending on the hardware.

"Setup was unable to create a new partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information."

So, I'm a newbie around here and installing operating systems, could you guys guide me here? I've got two hard drives and this is how I would like to set them up:

Hello digg, welcome to Seven Forums!





Will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the full disk management drive map so we can see what you have going on.



In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that.

Hey Bare Foot Kid, thanks. Well, a really strange thing happened and yesterday I connected an external hard drive and started copying some large files but the copy wasn't progressing at all so I restarted my computer and when it was back up, BIOS said to select proper boot device, it was like Windows was gone, I checked boot priority and it was ok.. So, right now I don't have an OS installed, I can install the latest version of Ubuntu if you'd like me to test anything. Thanks for the help.

This might be worth a try, maybe its just the MBR file was damaged.
Startup Repair

It might require a few (3) startup repairs.

If it doesn't find any repairs, and you still can't boot. Try
Repair Install

I tried startup Repair three times and it seems all the same, nothing changed.

I can't try Repair Install because I don't have Windows installed, what I got right now is two empty and formatted hard disk drives and a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Installation Disc.

Any ideas?

You said there's nothing installed on those hard drives?

At which point during the installed did it get stuck? Did you do a clean install or SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation - Windows 7 Forums

Yes, there isn't. I did everything, I still got the same error since the beginning:

"Setup was unable to create a new partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information."

Is there any data on those hard drive you need. If not delete all partitions and follow that guide on how to install, take another image of where it gets stuck.
