    Windows 8 install error 0x80300002 on new SSHD


    Hello, I'm CrazyKilla.

    I got a 4tb sshd, plugged into a pc and activated it and split into 2 partitions, 1tb for windows and 3tb for other stuff. Tried installing windows on the 1tb partition and it gives me error saying they couldn't install windows on this location, here's more info: 0x80300002.
    What does this error code mean?

    Btw my old drive failed after a bad day I pushed power button while it was slowly about to give an error after I pushed power button the night before that it was taking really long to turn off.
