I had Win7 Build 7100 and found that my internet connection wasn't working because of the known bug with rapppoe.sys. I didn't manage to fix it so I burned Build 7600 and tried to make a clean install. I have 2 hard-disks (150 GB and 500 GB). When I reached the menu with the partitions I formated C: and then tried to install the system on that, but I got this:
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information.
The smaller hdd was split in three but finally I formated all of it, but I hope I can recover some pictures from it after I manage to install the system.
I tried Vista SP2 but also gave an error, tried XP but it says something is wrong with the partition, that they are RAW partitions. I managed to create new partitions with diskpart using the Command Prompt, but same thing. Converting them directly from RAW to NTSF didn't work, as it said that:
Convert is not available for RAW drives.
I read it is something about RAID and removing some drives for the convert problem, but right now I'm writing from my phone. I know that the bigger hdd is SATA and the other one I think is ATA. I'm a med student and I have important data on the big hdd so I can't use it to install the system (it's dynamic anyway). Now I have the small hdd split in 2: one 100 gb created with disk part and one 50 gb created in the Win7 install menu.
I'm desperate, please help me out!
