[Help] Installing Vista 64bit error: 0x80300001

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My rig so far:
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3; i7 2600K; GSkill 2x4G; Corsair AX750 PSU; WD CaviarGreen SATA 2TB 64MB cache; Noctua D14; Silverstone AP121 x3; LG SATA ODD(old, could be stuffed, but I don't have another SATA ODD);Bitfenix Shinobi case. I'm getting a evga gtx570 later in the week, but I'm trying to install Win Vista 64 Ultimate to make sure everything I've got so far works, but I get this when choosing to where to install:

Where do you want to install Windows?

-> Disk 0 Unallocated Space


Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x8030001

I've tried everything I could think of/looked up.
-> Drivers from asrock motherboard disc (only detected AMD drivers for SATA, but installed all Intel ones anyway)
-> Copied all drivers on mb disc on usb, didn't come up when asking for drivers
-> Marvell SATA ports in IDE & AHCI Modes
-> Recommended SATA ports in DHI, AHCI & RAID Modes
-> From each SATA plug on motherboard
-> Booted a SATA HDD (500gb)with windows xp already installed, and tried to intall from cd drive to 2TB
-> Tried the partition, format and delete partition options on 2TB, CANNOT FORMAT "DISK 0 UNALLOCATED SPACE", CAN ONLY PARTITION, THEN FORMAT.

This problem seems related to this:

Any advice before I buy another ODD,burn another disk or send the HDD back?

it seems that the hard disc is not working. Plug it into another rig and format it through windows as ntfs. Then plug it back in and run the setup on the formatted partition of the hdd.

burn another disk
is there some piracy going on? I don't think that that is allowed to be discussed in overclock.net

Load bios defaults, then run the western digital zero fill utility to clear any garbage on the boot sector of the disk, then run setup again?

One thing i missed, is your Vista install disk already with SP2 included? If not, i suggest to get a newer iso / disk.

That is why i also recommended xp. Vista is fine but it uses more resources than xp or win 7.

That's the extended support end date. He was talking about the mainstream support end date.

If an MS product is still on Mainstream Support, tech support is usually free. If it's in extended support, technical support comes with a fee.

Check: http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/search/default.aspx?alpha=Vista

From: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/products/lifecycle

"What is the difference between mainstream support and extended support?

Mainstream support—Microsoft will offer mainstream support for a minimum of 5 years from the date of a product's general availability, or for 2 years after the successor product is released, whichever is longer. For example, if you buy a new version of Windows and five years later another version is released, you will still have two years of support left for the previous version.


Extended support—Microsoft will offer extended support for either a minimum of 5 years from the date of a product's general availability, or for 2 years after the second successor product (two versions later) is released, whichever is longer. Please note: Extended support is only available for commercial customers."
