    That can happen and it happened to me on my first attempt two years ago. The keys are not to assign a drive letter and not to format the new volume. (As I said in the post it is counter-intuitive) Let Windows Setup handle this and it will be right when it is finished. If you do not assign a drive letter and do not format the newly created volume then Windows Setup will create Windows in C:\Windows as shown in my very last screenshot.

    Maybe because you have not received the changes in the app, it seems that it is releasing by waves, I have them since yesterday, in fact those changes in the app came to me when I was still in build 16188:

    Windows 10 preview 64-bit

    I was glad the 32-bit iso was available as my old laptop hasn't updated to newer versions, via WU, for quite some time. So upgraded via the mounted iso. On the login screen the error that it can't load the user's profile came up. Cold shutdown and restart (twice) then it loaded and now seems OK, list of errors shown;

    The drive letter is only assigned by the OS after it's been booted so yes, not assigning a drive letter to the raw partition is the way to go.
    The method described has been around for decades and still works fine. The only trouble I recall is it would either boot off one or the other (often the last installed) and required either a bootmanager or editing the boot menu.

    But sure it can be made to work and it is a clean install for sure.

    These do exist but I haven't come across any.
