    Hello Dude!!!

    _Just Check Out The Following_

    #Method 1

    *Just Try To Un-Allocate the Space to the Partition Located on(By Deleting The Partition),
    *Now Allow Windows xp/07 to Reallocate the Space and Designate it as a System Partition.

    #Method 2

    *Also Check whether Boot Disk is Missing Drivers,
    *Do Media Boot process,
    *Run Set up,
    *Go through the pages,
    *Choose Custom option,
    *on the Disk configuration page that follows- Find whether you can see both the disks,
    *If You see only one Disk Please Don't Install it,
    *So in such cases Boot is Missing Some Drivers,
    *Just click on Load Driver Button,
    *Provide Path on the Disk Controller,
    *Once You fix this Just Relaunch the Set up,

    STEP 1:Make two Primary Partitions on your HDD and make one of them s Active.
    STEP 2: Boot from USB. During Setup, go to Command Prompt and make your active Partition.
    STEP 3: Copy all the files from USB to the active Partition using Commands as Xcopy or any.
    STEP 4: Remove USB and Restart your Computer and it should boot from Active Portion.
    STEP 5: Run Setup asusual and reisntall it.

    Actually after making any partition you need to locate that partition.
    That means an partition have many type like:-
    1. System partition
    2. Allocated
    3. Unallocated
    if you want to make partition from unallocated partition then you need to
    allocate it first and then make partition there.

    If your making partition after installing your operating system then you can not
    divide your 50% OF Space. You can divide only 50% of space in many part.
    So keep all this thing and then make partition in your system.
    All the best

    Follow these steps:

    1.Remove any unused physical drive: e.g. external portable hard disk, flash drive.

    2.Leaving only the hard disk drive that you are going to install windows in the system.



    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!
