  1. Windows 10 fresh install fails


    Hi!


    I'm having a common issue and I've tried all of the fixes I've found online. I still have the issue


    I have two disks - the USB removable memory stick which contains the installer ISO image, and an M.2 Samsung 500GB drive. I'm doing a fresh install of windows 10 and I'm encountering an error during the installation.


    When I reach the 'Where do you want to install Windows' dialog box in the installer, I see Drive 0, with 465GB of unallocated space. When I select this disk and click install I get the following error:


    "Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install Windows, restart the installation"


    My unallocated disk space looks like this from diskpart:


    >diskpart

    > list disk

    DISK ### Status Size Free Dyn GPT

    Disk 0 Online 465GB 0B * <----samsung m.2 500GB drive

    Disk 1 Online 28GB 0B * <----usb running windows installer

    > list volume
    Volume #### LTR Label FS Type Size Status Info

    --------------- ----- ------- --- ----- ----- ------- -----

    Volume 0 C Recovery NTFS Partition 529MB Healthy

    Volume 1 F NTFS Partition 465GB Healthy

    Volume 2 E FAT32 Partition 100MB Healthy Hidden

    Volume 3 D WIN10 FAT32 Removable 28GB Healthy


    >select disk 0

    >list partition


    Partition ### Type Size Offset

    -------------- ---- ----- ------
    Partition 1 Recovery 529MB 1024KB
    Partition 2 System 100MB 530MB
    Partition 3 Reserved 16MB 630MB
    Partition 4 Primary 465GB 646MB

    The only thing that l see that looks out of sorts is that volume 0, Recovery, gets drive letter C. Volume 1 is the one I expected to get drive letter C.


    Has anyone else seen an issue like this before? Am I barking up the wrong tree with the drive letter, or is something else going on?

    :)
