Windows 7 64-bit: setup was unable to create a new system partition gpt disk
Posted on 2014-07-23
I have an Adaptec 6405 RAID controller with an 11TB RAID array. I am trying to install Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on the array. I have booted from the Windows DVD in EUFI mode but when I select the partition windows gives me the message: "setup was unable to create a new system partition or location an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information"
I created the partition using the following commands:
select disk <id>
attributes disk clear readonly
create partition efi size=102
create partition msr size=32
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs label="Operating System"
What am I doing wrong. How do I install Windows 7 on this drive (RAID array)?
