How to fix "Setup was unable to create a new system partition" error installing Windows server



When i am trying to install Windows Server 2008 R2 from the USB Hard Disk Drive “JetFlash Transcend”, i am getting the error “Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information”.
Solution: Keep USB HDD which contains the operating system to install only connected to the computer and remove all the other USB hard disk drives from the computer. This works to install Windows Server on the existing system partition without error.
Note: Setup does not support configuration of or installation to disks connected through a USB or IEEE 1394 port.

  4. My steps: remove USB, click next, error apears, then connect USB, removed partitions, created new partition and pc created itself 100mb partition, then clicked next on my own partition and it worked ! ! !
    Just combine steps if it does not work, GOOD LUCK.

  6. In my case I had to connect Windows 7 directly to motherboard (back of the PC) in order to get past this stage.

  7. This problem occurs often with Windows. An old tech friend of mine that's been working with all kinds of OS in the last 20 years told me that this happens cause Windows simply isn't meant to be booted off of a stick. Always install from a DVD if you can. The solutions are various and none. Just try it all. I've seen a few that had no problem doing what Amer Al Barrawi said in another comment. Some people solved it by resetting ASCI to IDE. Some by disabling all the USB except the one with the stick. For me it was hilarious. I tried 2 hours installing in from a Kingston 8 GB stick I just got. I called this friend and he told me Kingston stick have been known to have issues with OS installations from them and told me to try burning Windows on another stick. I was sure it wouldn't work, but hey… desperate! I burnt the ISO on another stick of mine, 5 year old brandless one and it worked like a charm!!! I can't f believe it. So if nothing has worked for you and you're using Kingston, try installing from another brand stick. It worked for me.

  8. Excellent, worked like magic. I kept my external HDD connected while installing and it did not work. I layer disconnected it, shut the computer down and started the installation procedure again, and it worked without any further issues. Thanks….

  10. Use Windows 7 USB DVD Tool and create a DVD bootable drive rather than USB.
    Blank DVDs are still useful.
