    Need help to understand why I can't install the Windows on a drive with sufficient space (even more than 70 GB ). I always get an error message saying insufficient disk space .

    So how to fix this.

    Form discussion in another forum, what I have been informed is System Reserved H: must be at least 30 MB. I can't use format CD to format the harddisk ( No Device Driver Found ... error message ).

    So any help to change, format this system drive

    I have booted the computer form a format CD ( boot CD ) and tried the reinstallation of the windows. But the same previous message." Setup was unable to ... "

    When I try to format some of the drives, this error message : " No devices drivers were found ... "

    What I want to do is install a new window ( want to have two OS ) . I don't want to really format the hard disk and deletes the already installed windows.

    Thanks for your response upto now !
    If you don't understand this response, ignore this. I will upload the snapshots tomorrow !
