hi

 

you need to (re)format your Windows partition to NTFS (even if your dd is as GPT) with your Windows installer

I get "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition"

 

The drive was partitioned from OSX installer, as GPT and 3 partitions: for OSX, data and win7 those two as FAT. I did this in the past several times and Windows 7 installed just fine. I don't know why it doesn't now...

 

is there a way to install Win7 preferably without wiping the hard drive nor deleting my almost fully functional OSX install?

 

Thanks

Many thanks, recreating  the partition and formatting and restarting the installer solved it   :)
