Hey guys,

So I have been trying to install Vista on my PC using my Iphone as a flash drive and booting the setup from there. Everything works fine until I come to the window where you have to choose which partition to install to, my options are either:

DISK 0 PARTITION 2 Total Size: 35.1gb Free Space: 35.0gb (LOGICAL) or
DISK 0 PARTITION 3 Total Size: 35.6gb Free Space: 35.5gb (PRIMARY)

Selecting either one of these partitions and clicking next causes a pop up saying 'Windows could not determine if this computer contains a valid system volume' then the setup fails!

I have googled this but can only find suggestions to take out the USB or change boot priority in BIOS. I cannot do this without my Iphone/USB being plugged in as this is where windows boots from.

Does anybody have any idea's how I can work around this as i need to get my PC back up and running ASAP!

Thanks
