  1. Partition is too small


    I am installing Windows 10 on a laptop. Everything was going fine until I tried installing on "Drive 0 Unallocated Space". It gives me the "Windows cannot be installed on this drive. When I click details it reads, "This partition is too small. Make the size of this partition atlease 9769 MB or select another partition." There are no other partitions, just Drive 0 Unallocated Space.

    :)

    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

    Create installation media using small partition on HDD?


    If you watch the video from post #5 to create a Macrium Rescue disk. It would be the same procedure to create the Windows Installation disk.
    1. Download Windows Installation ISO: Windows 10 and put on desktop for easy access.
    2. Create a partition on an internal/external drive around 5GB, format as FAT32.
      NOTE: Set the partition Active if the disk used is an MBR disk. No need not to do anything if is a GPT disk .
    3. Use: WinRar/WinZip/7-Zip to extract the ISO file to the root of the partition created in step 2.
    4. Set the BIOS as first boot priority then boot.

    Partition is too small

    "Windows 10 couldn't be installed - we could update the system reserved partition"

    I think you mean "could not update", not "could".

    Suggestions:

    • Disconnect any other hard drives.
    • Run chkdsk /f on the System Reserved partition. You'll have to do this from the CMD prompt in Repair Mode.
    • Initially there were reports of some System Reserved partitions being too small for the upgrade. Search for details if the first two suggestions fail.
