    Difficulties partitioning my new HDD. Faulty HD?


    0x80300024Hey guys,

    I received a new WD 4TB HDD I'm planning to use to install windows 10 on.
    However the strangest thing is happening making me suspect that the HDD is faulty.

    I booted Windows 10 install set up and and choose advanced/custom install
    I identified my new HHD Drive 1 with 3,72TB of unallocated space.
    I go on to create a 500 GB partition where I will install Windows and the rest will be used as storage.
    I click on "new" and set the partition size to 512000MB

    To my suprise it created 2 other partitions
    Partition 1 500GB
    Partition 2 1.6TB
    Partition 3 2.2TB (number might not be accurate writing them by memory)

    Normally it should have been
    Partition 1 500GB (the one I create)
    Partition 2 the rest of the unallocated space

    Now I get a 0x80300024 error when I try to install windows on partition 1 (which I formatted of course)

    I booted on my rescue disk to use AOMEI partition assistant and deleted all the partitions to start from scratch.

    On the main screen it says my disk has 3.64TB unallocated but when I click on create a partition I can only set the partition size to 2TB leaving 1.64TB unused. Isn't strange?

    Is there something wrong with the new HDD I just received?

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

  3. Unresponsive HDD Partition.

    I somehow managed to format the partition & its now unallocated space. Now, I cant create a new partition neither I can allocated that free space to other Partition. Can you suggest a way to repair that space in HDD?

    -Thanks

    Unresponsive HDD Partition.

    As I said before, I would start with the clean command in order to get rid of any previous settings and partitions.
