In this video, learn how to fix “We couldn’t create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files” error when doing a clean install of Windows 10/8/7.

1. When the error occurs, press Shift+F10 to open CMD.
2. When the Command Prompt window opens, run these commands one by one:

diskpart

list disk

select disk X (X: Select the system disk you use)

clean

create partition primary size=5000

format fs=ntfs

assign

active

list volume

exit

cd d: (change directory to the USB flash drive)

xcopy d: c:/d /h /k (Copy all the Windows installation files from USB drive to C: drive)
3. You can now close Command Prompt and unplug the installation USB drive from computer and restart. After that, start the installation process again. This time error “We couldn’t create a new partition” will not happen.

That’s about it.

  4. I have the same issue. It turns out my BIOS setting for UEFI Boot was disabled. Once I enabled that setting, the problem went away.

  7. If you’re having problems usually it’s because when you type xcopy e: d:/d/h/k it’s because that command isn’t clearly explained. ESD drive is e: and my new partition on the hdd is d: and i need to also add /d/h/k to that command (no they are not “alternative volume label options”

  9. When I open cmd and type diskpart, it doesn’t go to the next line to enter list disk. It ends at “on computer: MINEINPC”

  10. Bro, I did exactly what you instructed in the video… After commanding "create partition primary size=5000", the window sent a text saying "Diskpart has encountered an error: Data error(cyclic redundancy check)."

    What should I do with this?
