    I have got Ubuntu installed on Disk 0, XP (C:) on 80GB partition, DATA (F:) on 287GB and new WIN7 (E:) 97GB partition (all NTFS) on Disk 1 and I'm trying to install Windows 7 RC in this new WIN7 partition

    1. restarted PC with Win 7 DVD
    2. followed instructions on Install Windows page
    3. “get important updates for installationâ€Â￾ has not popped up ?????
    4. accepted terms and conditions
    5. selected custom (advanced)
    6. select E:
    7. clicked next
    8. pops up with warning: â€Â￾ Set up was unable to create new system partition or locate an existing partition. See the Setup log files for more infoâ€Â￾
    XP can access drive E: without any problem, the same Ubuntu and many other Linux distributions. What’s wrong?

    Hello,
    As I wanted to install Windows 7 in a new NTFS partition I followed Step 3 Point 1 which says: "... you want to install RC on another disk partition, restart your computer with the installation disc in your DVD drive ..." I always ended up this the error: â€Â￾ Set up was unable to create new system partition or locate an existing partition. See the Setup log files for more infoâ€Â￾.
    When I started the installation under XP than I could follow up all the points after 1 from step 3 without any problems.
    Good luck with all installations on specially prepared partitions.
    Regards
    Lawrence
