I am trying to dual boot Windows 8 with Windows 7. But I keep getting an error while selecting the drive to install on. The error is
Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information.
What might be the problem?
Also, previously I tried to install only Windows 7 on my HDD. I downloaded the ISO from digital river. Made a bootable USB. During installation I got the same error as above. But when I tried to install it via other USB which had pirated Windows 7 downloaded from torrents I did not receive any errors.
My system config is
- Motherboard - Gigabyte G41 MT S2P
- HDD - 160 GB SATA
- RAM - 8 GB
Why might I be getting this error and how can I get past it?
