    Unable to install Windows 10 on SSD


    Hello All,

    I am hoping someone can assist me. I have a Dell Optiplex 960 that was on bios A05. I downloaded the Windows media creation tool and tried to install Windows but kept receiving an error "Windows can not be installed to this disk." Ensure the disks controller is enabled in the bios. I did not find any controller options in the bios, but was able to see the disk listed under disks. After researching I tried Diskpart, Clean, Convert GPT, with no change. I did the same with Convert to MBR, no change. I updated the bios to A18, and tried these steps again, no change. I found a separate post online stating to use RUFUS and downloaded the ISO, created a different flash and tried again, no change. When I try to create a ew partition is shows "We couldn't create a new partition. (Error: 0x80004005), and back to square one.

    Any ideas?

    Is the sata controller mode set to AHCI in BIOS (not RAID)?

    NavyLCDR, Thank you. That corrected it. My options were defaulted to RAID Autodetect / ATA, I changed it to RAID Autodetect / AHCI and it went right to the next screen installing. Thank you for your assistance!
