    Windows couldn't create a partition or locate an existing one


    I had a kali linux installed in my computer. Then I tried to install Windows 10 using a bootable USB drive. (I created it by downloading the windows 10 ISO and then creating USB drive using Rufus.) But when I was trying to install windows 10, it shows my hard drive, but it doesn't installing to it. Error message is the following:
    Code:
    Code:
    We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files.
    Then I checked for the log file (X:\Windows\panther\setupact.log) It has this message:
    Code:
    Code:
    LogReasons: [BLOCKING reason for disk 0: CanBeSystemVolume] The selected disk is not the computer's boot disk
    I know that right ? USB disk is the boot disk here. Then I searched in the internet for a solution. I came up with this: http://blogs.technet.com/b/asiasupp/...dows-8-cp.aspx
    I followed all the instructions there. Cleaned my hard disk using DISKPART and formatting and stuff. Then I rebooted my machine. But, still it shows the same error. Can anyone got this ?
