  1. SOLVED (no need to CLEAR the whole drive)
    I had the same error but I solved it simply by "delete"ing that partition which I wanted to have my windows on..it'll be labeled as "Unallocated..", then clicked on it to create that partition then NEXT! Done! I did it without deletion the whole drive because I had Linux on that same drive and without using the terminal!
