    Relentless BSODs after clean reinstall/partition order mixed up


    After a BIOS update that somehow completely broke my previous Windows version (build 1803) I decided to clean reinstall with build 1903. For some reason, after reinstallation I would constantly get bombarded by BSODs out of nowhere (mostly ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READ_ONLY_MEMORY with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT AND PAGE_FAULT being rarer). CHKDSK, DISM and SFC failed to help, so did resetting.

    Also it seems like for some reason after the BIOS update, the partitions are all out of order. While in Windows 10 they are all correct, if I access the system with the installation ISO or the recovery environment, the system partition (installed on an M.2 SATA SSD) would be placed beneath the two data partitions (on a normal hard drive). I believe this at least partially contributes to the issue.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    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

    Clean Install Windows 10 partition issue

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I appreciate the troubleshooting steps performed to resolve the issue. However, let’s try with the further troubleshooting steps and see if it works. Initially, I would suggest you to create a bootable media with a USB/Flash drive of capacity 8GB.
    For better understanding, you may watch the video with the procedure from the article on
    How to Clean Install Windows 10 on a PC Step-by-Step
    Guide
    .

    Set the boot priority to USB once after creating a bootable media using a USB and proceed with the Windows Installation. On the drive selection window, press Shift + F10 keys to open the Command Prompt. Then follow the steps listed
    below:

    • Type the following command in the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
      diskpart
    • Once after executing the above command, type the following command to list the current drives and press Enter:
      list disk
    • List disk will give you the list of drives, use the following command to select the drive and press Enter: select disk 0
    • Type the following command to check if the disk is online: online disk
      (if the disk is not online)
    • Type the following command to clean the drive and press Enter:
      clean
    • To create a partition, type the following command and press Enter:
      create partition primary
    • To select the partition that you created, type the following command and press Enter:
      select partition 1
    • To set the partition active, type the following command and press Enter:
      active (if this is the boot partition)
    • Type the following command to assign a drive letter and press Enter:
      assign letter(letter)
    • After completing all this, close the command prompt screen and click on
      refresh button.
    • Then you will only have one drive with “unallocated space”, just select the partition to start the installation.

    Let us know how it goes and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Regards,

    Mala S

    Partition problem during clean install of Win 10

    Partition problem during clean install. I get the message "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files."

    I'm trying to do a clean install (after a successful upgrade so this laptop has been activated on Windows 10). Super basic situation - single blank internal SATA HDD in a 2010-era Dell laptop, installing from a USB stick, same installation media used for the
    successful upgrade. No complications - dual boot, multiple drives, Linux, etc.

    After I select the Custom install option the window showing disk partitions is shown. My disk is there (the only one) but no matter how I delete/create/format it I get the message noted above.

    I have searched the web of course, found and tried the following:

    • Made sure the hard drive is first in the boot order in the BIOS
    • Used the "diskpart" utility and the sequence of commands suggested to clean, partition and format the disk.
    • Tried leaving the disk blank (without any partitions) and also tried creating a single Primary partition.
    • Pulled the USB stick for a few seconds right after accepting the license, before the custom install selection. (A weird suggestion but I tried it).
    Any ideas?
