    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the forum and trying to install windows 8 on my tablet. I was able to burn the ISO and get into the windows install except it will not allow me to install on the partition I get the error "we couldnt create a new partition or locate the existing one."

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks,
    -J

    When I rebuilt the HP Slate 500 I needed to go into the advanced options and use DiskPart from the command line to create and activate the partitions...
