Thanks raphoenix I followed the instructions but also removed one of my drives, started the installation, when the drive window came up I had Disk0 Unallocated, clicked next and off it went installing.
Your step by step instructions were good but for those who have never used dos or the command window before this is a little more precise.
You try to install Windows 8 (CP), and encountered the following error:
"We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files."
Try to following methods:
1)Check if you have an SD Card in the system. If you do, you remove it and run setup again ( you may have to remove a drive if u have more than one drive)
2) Once the setup fails to find the partition, just close the setup window (the top-right-hand side red X does the job).
From that point, you should be brought back at the initial setup screen.Choose "Repair" then go to the advanced tools and start the command line.
Type Start DISKPART.
Type LIST DISK and identify your SSD disk number (from 0 to n disks).
Type SELECT DISK <n> where <n> is your SSD disk number.
Once u have selected the disk you have to type the selected disk in front of each command ie "DISK 0 CLEAN, DISK 0 CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY " etc.
Type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
Type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK
Type EXIT twice ( U end up with two command boxes) one EXIT to get out of DiskPart, the other EXIT to get out of the command line tool)
