    I'm installing Windows 10 from a flash drive purchased from microsoft.com on a new machine that I built. Currently installation is failing when I try to select where the installation location. The only location available is "Drive 0 Unallocated Space" which seems correct to me. When I hit "Next" I get an error message "We couldn't install Windows in the location you chose. Please check your media drive. Here's more info about what happened: 0x80300002."


    If I try to use diskpart to create a partition on the drive create partition primary I get an error "DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the System Event Log for more information." Unfortunately all of the advice online seems to be about viewing system evens once you've got Windows running, not while you're installing it.


    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.

    Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.
