I have a Sony Vaio laptop (VPCYB15KX), a bit old but working nonetheless currently running Windows 7 Home Premium and works fine, but is quite slow so I decided to upgrade to an SSD. Picked up a crucial MX200 250 GB SSD and was going to upgrade to Windows 10 (fresh install) and made a bootable USB of the W10 iso.
I can get to the screen to select the drive/partition to install to, and when I select the unallocated drive and choose new, it creates the 500 MB system reserved partition, and then I select the other partition (remaining space) and choose format it spits out the error "Failed to format the selected partition [Error: 0x80070057]". At first I thought, maybe the new SSD is bad so I popped it into another Laptop of mine (thinkpad 520) and it was able to install Windows 10 onto the SSD without issue. I then moved the drive back to the Sony Vaio and it would not boot, giving disk read error message on boot, and then complaining some sort of Boot files were missing (was a Windows 10 type screen, blue background and white text). If I put the old Samsung 2.5" HDD back into the Vaio and boot it works without issue..
I also ran from the "run" tool perfmon /report to help determine if there were any hardware issues but nothing major I can see. I can't understand why it will boot the old Windows 7 image on the HDD, but not a Windows 10 image (created by another laptop) on an SSD or format the necessary partitions for a fresh W10 installation? I'm really stumped..
