I am trying to install Windows 7 from a USB onto a new computer. The installation begins properly. It asks me what language to use and then asks if I want to do a custom (fresh) install, which I do. Then a screen comes up that asks me the following:
Where do you want to install windows?
My computer's hard drive (Disk 0 Partition 1) is an option (it has 465.7 GB free). When I click on it, though, this message appears:
Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 1.
When I click on details, this appears:
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.
Since this is a brand new computer, I was advised to click the format button. But when I click the button format near the bottom of the window, the following message appears:
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information.
I do not know how to access the setup log files.
I do know how to access the BIOS, but I do not know how to enable the disk's controller.
