    It seems to me, that Davidmedia has spreaded his error in several places, without garbage collecting the mess, he left.

    Here is a nearly identical thread.

    The reason for this cause was a wrong setup-target estimation - whilst the user intended to install to a SSD, setup grabbed the 2 TB hard disk (that might contain some traces from an old install). Solution (always a good solution): unplug all disks not required for install.


    BTW: I've documented a bit how to analyze setup failure logs - currently in German, but an English version will be created (and linked in my German article) soon.
