|THX, No. Sorry. Can not even afford a recovery CD.|
riider, there is only one partition under custom, and you are correct I have already created, made new, formatted it for over an hour, but Windows just gives that error. I have seen that link and that is the same stuff I did months ago when I was trying to get W10, Vista, and XP on. Well, XP gave BSOD.
As always, one day of searching finds you different items the next day. I found this link that worked to get Windows 7 installed.
Boot windows installation from USB drive
In console type diskpart.exe and press enter. In this program execute following:
select disk=0. Disk 0 is your destination drive, so be careful, all information on this drive will be removed.
create partition primary size=xxx, where xxx – is the size of new partition
format fs=ntfs quick
exit, now you have bootable drive C
Navigate to USB flash drive, in my case: cd d:
Copy all files from USB drive to C: drive: xcopy d: c: /e /h /k
Go to boot folder: cd boot
Make you C: drive bootable with following command: bootsect /nt60 c:
Put off USB drive from computer and restart them.
Now that this is installed, will see if I can more onto the next step.
I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.
