I am attempting to reinstall Windows 8 Pro (from DVD) after disk changes that have removed the previous 100Mb system partition. This is on one of two disks in a dual-boot setup where my primary disk is my Windows 7 drive.
The target disk is a 2Tb disk partitioned into 500Gb (for Windows 8 once reinstalled) and just short of 1500 Gb (for Windows 7 data).
It's not a Logical disk.
All my attempts to reinstall are greeted with this error message:
"Setup was unable to use the existing partition because the system volume does not contain the required free space"
What should I do?
