    Install W10 on new SSD Failing


    I have a Sony Vaio laptop (VPCYB15KX), a bit old but working nonetheless currently running Windows 7 Home Premium and works fine, but is quite slow so I decided to upgrade to an SSD. Picked up a crucial MX200 250 GB SSD and was going to upgrade to Windows 10 (fresh install) and made a bootable USB of the W10 iso.

    I can get to the screen to select the drive/partition to install to, and when I select the unallocated drive and choose new, it creates the 500 MB system reserved partition, and then I select the other partition (remaining space) and choose format it spits out the error "Failed to format the selected partition [Error: 0x80070057]". At first I thought, maybe the new SSD is bad so I popped it into another Laptop of mine (thinkpad 520) and it was able to install Windows 10 onto the SSD without issue. I then moved the drive back to the Sony Vaio and it would not boot, giving disk read error message on boot, and then complaining some sort of Boot files were missing (was a Windows 10 type screen, blue background and white text). If I put the old Samsung 2.5" HDD back into the Vaio and boot it works without issue..

    I also ran from the "run" tool perfmon /report to help determine if there were any hardware issues but nothing major I can see. I can't understand why it will boot the old Windows 7 image on the HDD, but not a Windows 10 image (created by another laptop) on an SSD or format the necessary partitions for a fresh W10 installation? I'm really stumped..

    Windows 10 Upgraded and Activated

    I upgraded from W7 Pro to W10 Pro And it is Activated. I've decided I want to install a new SSD. Will I be able to install the new SSD and install W10 Pro on my New SSD and will it activate?

    download Windows 10 upgrade to dvd

    Right... but how do I get the W10 clean install on the new SSD after it is on the old disk drive ? I want to take out the disk drive and clean install it on the new SSD . Do you mean the option to clean install on the SSD will be available if both drives
    are in during the upgrade ? Then I can remove the old drive and it will then boot with W10 on the SSD?

    Install W10 on new SSD Failing

    Are you trying to do an eufi install or a legacy bios install?

    If eufi, the ssd needs to be in gpt format. If legacy bios, ssd needs to be in mbr format.

    Thanks for the reply. This I have no idea about, how do I know which I'm doing? All I'm doing is pressing F11 to get the boot manager and selecting my bootable USB stick when it's powering on.

    Hi,

    No need to format anyway. Just clean the drive and start over without formatting.

    Cheers, *Wink

    Hi,

    Are you certain the drive does not contain any partitions at all ?

    Cheers, *Wink

    Thanks for the suggestion - though it doesn't look like it's anything I haven't tried.

    When going through the install process I either have the option to delete the existing partitions that I attempted to create on previous install attempts and then attempt to install to the unallocated block of free space which gives the error I posted earlier or I can click new which creates a 500 MB system partition, and a second primary partition. If I attempt to install now to that second "primary" partition it fails with the error "Windows could not format a partition on disk 0. The error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80070057"

    What about creating a MiniTool Partition Wizard (free) USB/CD, booting from that, wipe the SSD by writing zeroes to the drive, create and format a NTFS partition on the entire drive minus 1GB, then attempting to install Windows to the partition already formatted by MiniTool?

    Install W10 on new SSD Failing

    I will give it a shot, thank you. Although as I mentioned I did install Windows 10 on this SSD, through a second laptop without issue but when I put the SSD in the original laptop it would not boot successfully..

    By the way, the bios on this thing is pretty limited and I don't have a legacy/uefi boot option.

    No dice *Sad Wiped to zeroes, created NTFS primary partition minus 1 GB, and then wouldn't let me proceed to install on that partition with the error "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files".

    Error after trying to install on NTFS partition formatted in mini partition wizard.

    I tried going into the repair my computer at the start of the install wizard, ran a 'clean' from diskpart and install again on the unallocated block, still gives error. I am stumped.

    This might be a workaround to get W10 to boot, you've mentioned W10 installs on the new SSD on another computer, but won't boot on the original laptop. Have you considered doing that to get W10 on the SSD, then install the SSD on the original laptop and try startup repair?

    If you've tried this already nevermind, but this may be an option to repair the boot on the original laptop https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...lure-boot.html

    Grasping at straws here, but you've tried most everything that might be suggested with no resolution.

    P.S. on my computer I've always had retail installs so a recovery drive was never created on any OS install, but the W10 iso gives the same repair options and capability if you boot from the USB iso.
