Windows 7 Install error
April 3, 2010 Leave a comment
If you get an error “Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300024” while you are installing windows 7, here is why.
- You are installing to a non NTFS drive. Most likely the drive was formatted as Mac GUID or Linux EFS
- Disconnect all other drives except the one you want to install to.
- Format the drive in another windows computer, (for some reason, mac won’t format it correctly, I tried).
- If you can’t physically remove the drive, do a FIXMBR command from the install cd.
If you are still having problems, chances are that the drive is on the fritz
