    Win7 64 bit clean install error. unable to create system partition.


    Hi,
    I had 32 bit win7 home premium provided by OEM. Recently I purchased win7 professional 64 bit in order to increase my memory.(My system is 64 bit capable) I followed [1]. I am using USB for installation. I booted the system with USB. Then at disk manager I deleted all the partitions(including recovery ) Then I refreshed and click next and I got an error saying setup unable to create system partition. I also tried diskpart clean. Still no hope. So I am stuck with a formated laptop. Want to get this working soon. Can anyone of you kindly enlighten me on this issue.

    tikz,
    Where did you get the Win 7 that you want to install?

    I strongly suspect a bad Win 7 or a hacked Win 7 as the cause.

    its an original copy downloaded from Microsoft. But the setup was there for about 4 months in my HDD. Can this happen if the setup is corrupted?

    Suggest you talk to your university about getting another copy of Win 7 since yours appears to be defective.

    Ok. I'll check with them. Thanks for the support. Is there any chance that this is happening coz of a fault in my HDD? fault in MBR or something.

    Hi,

    Is there a chance the ISO you downloaded is corrupt? Try downloading it again from this site:
    Download Windows 7 ISO (Official 32-bit and 64-bit Direct Download Links) My Digital Life

    And then burning it at no more than 4x speed to a DVD for installation using this tool:
    The Official ImgBurn Website

    Regards,
