Detailed description：Hi everyone, I can't seem to install Win10 on blank SSD from bootable USB flash drive I created on my mac (this is the only computer I have available).
The laptop boots from USB drive, Windows setup starts, then it lets me select the language, enter product key, and choose upgrade or custom installation (I chose the latter). Then I can see my SSD drive and create required partitions. When I select the biggest partition (3) and format it, install gives me this error:
"We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one"
Which sounds funny, because it just created the partition. It can see the partitions, and diskpart utility also can, but it refuses to install on that partition, even though it is formatted, empty and has enough space (I have 1Tb SSD). Same happens when I try to install Windows 11.
The SSD is Samsung MZVL21 T0HCLR-00B00.
VMD controller and secure boot are both disabled in BIOS. (With VMD enabled it asks for IRST driver, but the issue remains either way).
Can anyone help me? I've tried searching for solution and I found similar problem on MS site, but it didn't help. Sorry, It doesn't let me post links here, but the idea is to use diskpart util to create GPT disk and partition it. It didn't work for me: I can create the partitions, but Windows setup still refuses to install with the same error.
