I bought a used Panasonic Toughbook CF-31.. Its an older unit MK1 with an intel i5 processor.
I never trust computers until I've wiped them clean and reinstalled all my own stuff.. I used DBAN to wipe the drive (DOD Short) as I always do..
I burned windows to a bootable USB drive (as I always do) and then tried to install it but the installation fails when I try to get past the part where it asks me which partition to install it on.
The drive is clean..
I get the following errors
"Windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 1. (show details)
When I click to show details, it says:
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.
I've scanned google to solve this problem with no success.
I tried the disk part procedure as follows but it had no affect...
Type LIST DISK and identify your SSD disk number (from 0 to n disks).
Type SELECT DISK <n> where <n> is your SSD disk number.
Type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
Type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
Type EXIT twice (one to get out of DiskPart, the other to exit the command line tool)
I have also tried changing the bios from AHCL (or whatever it was) to "Compatible" and that didn't work either..
