Hi guys,
I have been asked to install Windows 7 on an Xp machine (SP2) and I consistently come up with an error when i get to the select partition page. Scanned the net and couldn't find anything to help.
The error is:
setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See Setup log files for more information.

I don't really know what to actually do to fix this.

Thanks in advance

I managed to fix it by formatting the drive into NTFS file.
