Windows Cannot Be Installed to Disk 0 Partition 2 (Show Details)

Windows cannot be installed on this disk. The disk may fail soon. If other hard disks are available, install Windows to another location.

So... that's it?

What is on partition 1? Are you running a dual-boot setup?

I'm installing a new Windows on a Western Digital Green 1TB.

200GB on one partition - boot driver. 100MB is System Reserved. The rest goes for Primary.

Delete all the partitions with GParted and try installing Windows again. If you get the "disk may fail soon" error again, you have a faulty drive and need to RMA it.

I'm creating two partitions because I want to split the driver. Obviously if the error persists then that means it's done for. I don't know how old is that HDD, but it's old.

Have you checked the SMART status of the drive recently?

Yup. Enabled it back, deleted the partitions and tried to install Windows on a single driver only - doesn't even get to the installation process.

I'm definitely getting an new one.
