Windows cannot be installed on drive 0 partition 1 - Yoga 300-11BY

I made a USB boot disk with Windows and tried to make a clean install. Unfortunately, when I chose Custom Install, I erased all the partitions in order to gain more space. Now, when I choose to make a partition, format it and then press Next, I cannot continue and it says that ''Windows cannot be installed on drive 0 partition 1.

 

My laptop is a Yoga 300-11BY and it has a emmc 32 GB drive.

 

What can I do? I have erased everything and I cannot work it.

It says that ''Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.

Secure boot may still be enabled. This may prevent installation of a boot partition until the setting is disabled. You can turn this off in the BIOS.

Re: Windows cannot be installed on drive 0 partition 1 - Yoga 300-11BY

Hello.

After struggling with the error windows cant install on this disk i FOUND A SOLUTION for my lenovo yoga 300-11BY with 32GB EMMC Drive!

 

Step 1) install rufus on your PC

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

 

Step 2) Find a usb flash drive

 

Step 3) Download your windows 10 64bit ISO file on your PC

 

Step 4) Open rufus > select your usb drive, select GPT partition scheme for UEFI, select FAT32, load your ISO file from the small disc icon on the bottom right corner and click Start

 

Step 5) make sure your BIOS is set to start UEFI only

 

your laptop should boot straight to usb flash drive without pressing the recovery hardware button, just a normal start up!

 

Step 6) install windows, use custom install, delete all your partitions and press next without creating a partition or formatting your drive

 

Enjoy Smiley Happy
