    Windows setup error - we can't tell if your pc has enough space to continue installing...


    I am trying to reinstall Windows 10 (while keepings files). I am installing from a DVD 1809 and allowing updates before I get the above message. I am running the SETUP as Administrator.


    I have 758 GB free on a 930 GB drive. I ran a chkdsk /f on the C drive and all is ok.


    There are no external drives, but I do have a second 2TB SSD drive internally as well - 1.73 TB free of 1.81 TB.


    There is nothing else attached other than mouse, keyboard and a router via ethernet cable. There are no errors on Device Manager for any devices.


    Processor is an AMD Ryzen 2600x with an NVIDIA RTX 2600 GPU on an ASUS Motherboard.

    :)

  3. We can't tell if your PC has enough space to continue installing Windows 10

    These posts were over a year ago. I would have thought that the problem would be fixed by now, but apparently not.

    I have been running Windows 10 (upgraded from 8.1) on my machine for quite a while.

    Windows Upgrade Assistant told me I did not have the latest version and should update.

    I followed the procedure, it (apparently) did the update and started Windows 10 Setup which then checked for updates.

    It then checked that everything was ready at which point I got this same message.

    "We can't tell if your PC has enough space to continue installing Windows 10. Try restarting Setup."

    I have 72GB free space. I am not running Raid, though the motherboard is capable of it.

    What does it need to check at this point that was not checked when the update was started?

    If you cannot fix the problem, at least get this message changed to be more informative.

    Say what space it thinks it needs, what space it thinks I have, what error code if any.

    Also provide a button to restart the Setup, otherwise I can only go back to restarting the Upgrade !

    Each time I get a failure, there is a tool WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab

    available on the Windows 10 site that finds a problem with Windows 10 Update and fixes it, but

    I do not know why it keeps getting broken.

    I hope this might help to resolve the problem.

    Can't install Oblivion: Data Error

    The crc error is kind-of a developer's fault which happens if you install the game on a system where it had already been installed and uninstalled before. It had happened to me personally and my disk is fine...

    To manage without having to reinstall windows, try it - at the best you'd save buying a new disk and at the worst it might not work and no harm would be done...

    1.) Go to Add/remove programs and uninstall Oblivion (If it shows on the list). If the add/remove procedure results in an error - skip to the next step and continue as it will still remove the game with the remaining steps.

    2.) After or If the uninstall finishes go to Start - Run - type regedit - hit Enter - click on the + sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click on the + sign next to SOFTWARE, click on the + sign next to BETHESDA SOFTWORKS, right click on Oblivion (if it is still there) and then delete.

    3.)Now still in Regedit find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{35CB6715-41F8-4F99-8881-6FC75BF054B0} and delete it the same way you deleted oblivion in the last step.(If it is still there - this is the uninstall key for add\remove programs)

    4.)close regedit.

    5.)Go into explorer find the C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion folder (if it is still there) and delete it.

    6.)find the folder C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Games\Oblivion (Substitute your username for USERNAME) and delete it (Again if it is still there)

    By doing this it will delete all traces of the game from your computer.

    Now you can install the game *Smile Windows setup error - we can't tell if your pc has enough space to continue installing... :) hopefully without getting crc problems.

    If deleting the stuff from the registry doesn't work or you're still getting uninstallation errors, one way that I used to get around it was to go into Safe Mode and run the setup.exe file from the disc. IIRC it asks you if you want to reinstall the game...so go ahead and reinstall it.
