    HI first im a new member here hoping to solve this annoying problem.
    I have a MSI A6000 laptop.

    I was hoping for a clean install of windows 7x64 via a usb from an iso.( i donot have the cd). I used the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool and it was properly installed. Next i tried booting the usb to clean install and got the following error:"Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information".
    So i followed the web suggestions again and ended up deleting and formatting all of my disk including recovery files. I created
    a new partition and tried to hit next. but the same error showed up again.

    getting frustrated i tried various troubleshooting like the startup recovery which was in the table of options which included chkdisk and all that.
    Next time i restart the laptop i get a bootmgr error or the 0xc0000098 error. Form there on i couldnt access the recovery options.
    spamming f8 to enter command line doesnt work. hitting tab for post screen doesnt work nor does hitting f3 for recovery.
    i cannot access anything but setup or boot menu.
    very strange but i was able to boot with usb earlier but now i cant boot with the same usb without getting the bootmgr error.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    P.S. i have also toggled the boot priority. so thats not the issue here. and i dont think the FAT32 NTFS format are the problem either. well atleast
    initially. but the problem im having seems to have two parts. maybe two separate problems at once?
