When installing Windows 7 onto Gigabyte SATA RAID, I got two errors:
- Windows cannot be installed to this disk 0x80300001
- Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001
Windows Setup sees the RAID volume, and one of the errors appears when you create partition manually.
The error is shown after you have inserted RAID driver CD / DVD and Windows have loaded it.
After one lost hour I figured out that you need to insert back Windows installation DVD disk and click Refresh. Error goes away after refresh.
I am SO SO SO grateful to you for this – I had alreayd wasted a fretful hour when I found this posr. You would think win7 was smart enough to say “please re-inset system boot disk”…what a pathetic annoying badly-thought out installation procedure! – At leats mine is actually installing now!
