    Default Setup was unable to create a system partition in WIndows 8

    Hi everyone,

    I am planning to get a clean install of Windows 8 64 bit Pro on my half year old laptop but every time my installation process stalls with the same message:

    "Setup was unable to create a system partition or locate an existing partition."

    I have to stop the installation and i have searched the causes online but with no luck so far.

    any others same to have encountered the same installation problem with windows 8?

    hope someone can help me and many thanks in advance.

    Sorry I can't help with your problem, but I believe the Panther directory relates to Group Policy

    I t appears the boot disk is missing drivers.
    Can you try this out please.

    Could you do a media boot
    (a) run setup
    (b) go through the pages.
    (c) Choose custom option
    (d) ON the disk config page that follows - determine if you can see both the disks.
