Not really an OSX problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a hard drive that has been partitioned many times by different partition tools including OSX which I believe to be the culprit.

At the moment I cannot install Windows 7 or 8 as it says it cannot create a partition or find one.

This has happened to me before and in the past I have booted the OSX installer and repartitioned it using MBR instead of GUID, this has always worked in the past.

This time it wouldn't work, I then tried GParted, and then disk part using ;

 

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.

 

Type CLEAN

 

Type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

 

Type ACTIVE

 

Type FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK

 

Type ASSIGN

 

 

None of these have worked frown.gif

 

Any ideas what I can try next?

After trying every tool I could find I got it to work by unplugging the other hard drives so that it was the only one.

Worked first time after that.

There's several hours of my life gone that I won't get back!
