Error: “We couldn’t create a new partition or locate an existing one

Symptom:

You try to install Windows 8 (CP), and encountered the following error:

We couldn’t create a new partition or locate an existing one.  For more information, see the Setup log files.”

 

Resolution:

Try to following methods:

1)Check if you have an SD Card in the system. If you do, you remove it and run setup again.

2) Once the setup fails to find the partition, just close the setup window (the top-right-hand side red X does the job).

From that point, you should be brought back at the initial setup screen.Choose “Repair” then go to the advanced tools and start the command line.

Start DISKPART.

Type LIST DISK and identify your SSD disk number (from 0 to n disks).

Type SELECT DISK <n> where <n> is your SSD disk number.

Type CLEAN

Type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

Type ACTIVE

Type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK

Type ASSIGN

Type EXIT twice (one to get out of DiskPart, the other to exit the command line tool)
