    Hello,
    I'm a new beta tester and i've been trying to get Windows 7 on a machine running XP. I have two drives, one for XP one for Win 7, and i've partitioned then correctly (I think). When i try to install win 7 it says, "Setup was unable to create a new system partition..." Please Help!

    PS i'm using build 7000 of win 7

    Had Same Problem In Vista

    I Think If You Go Into Bios And Dissable USB Boot You Will Be Fine

    What did you use to create the partitions?

    Never Mind! My dad figured it out! It was Noton GoBack, we disabled it, and the installation worked fine!

    Thanks anyway,

    I used partition Magic 8 to create and format a new partition. I then installed windows on that new partition.
