i used custom installation and created the only one partition ( os created necessary partition of 300mb).
installation completed and after restart showing error
Launch error or start windows normally.

tried 2 times more same error.

then i created the 100GB hard partition for installation of OS and remaining for Data Storage. then it worked .

can any one explain the reason.

i have one more situation which i will explain after the successful solution of this thread,

Thank you in advance
