Hello friends,

 

I had a such trouble on installing windows 7 x64 today:

 

,,Windows cannot install to this disk. The disk may fail soon. If other hard disks are available, install Windows to another location."

 

There was not another hard drive so i push NEXT and ran installation anyway. installing finneshed successfuly.

 

What does it mean? why it occurred during a installation?

 

It is i-5 proccesor with 4 GB RAM but it is impossible to say it works fast even after i did that re-installing a Windows.

 

May HDD is matter of that?

 

I did after back up by Acronis for make sure if something happens i will have back up for recovery.

 

Thanks in advanced.

Good afternoon Elysium,

 

By the installation of windows 7 you have to delete all the documents on the partition if you have a back up of you hard disk.

I have pasted a picture below, when you're here on the istallation you may click on ''delete'' on all the partitions you have.

When the installation is finished you can copy the back up back of your hard disk.

If there are another problems I hear it from you.

Thanks for reply Oguzhan,

 

I did that when i tried to install windows, i deleted that C drive only but it appeared again after i ran installation anyway. after i finished installing i make system back up only by acronis. and it is saved on D drive.

try it to set the back up on the C partition, I think that is the problem because I've done that too.

From a microsoft forum

 

Regarding this error message, here are two steps you can take:

  1. Run chkdsk command from Windows 7 installation media.
  2. Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Prompt and reformat disk with Diskpart command while you see the first installer screen.

Using ubuntu and sharing how to as well as collecting how to scripts for common programs. Feel free to ask or share ^-^

With reference to Post #3, whichever partition or drive the active copy of Windows is installed on is defined by Windows as the C:\ drive. Other partitions and drives are then given letter designations as Windows sees fit, but Windows itself is always on the C:\ drive.
