Default Windows install problems - 10-22-2009, 10:34 PM

i had OS X on my mini 9 and i tried to get win7 on it and it didnt work i kept getting "setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate a an existing system partition. see the setup log files for more information."
then i tried vista just to see if it would work and got "windows could not determine if this computer contains a valid system volume" then i even tried xp and got similar problems any ideas on what it could be?

Did you try what Anguish suggested in your other thread about this very same thing??

Not a good idea to start multiple threads about the same issue.
