Sadly, I downloaded a game from Steam recently - Wolfenstein The New Order since you ask - that only works on Windows 64-bit! It seems that there's a number of games with this requirement, and they're only going to grow more prevalent. So I thought, if I'm going to have to install a new version, I may as well get the latest.
I was hoping against hope that Microsoft might have improved its installer since Windows 7. (I skipped 8 and 8.1 for obvious reasons.) But no. I soon ran into this error from the Windows 10 install CD's partioner:
"We couldn’t create a new partition or locate an existing one."
I should have known what the problem was, since I wrote about it only a couple of years ago.
Yep, Windows still won't play with other operating systems and installs. Once again, I had to disconnect every internal drive from my system except for the one on which I wanted to install Windows 10. Only then could I get past this error.
On the plus side though, Windows 10 doesn't need an install CD just so I can get the the internet over my wired Ethernet connection, like Windows 7 did!
