Unable to Install HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI

Hi,

 

Your PC is formatted in MBR which has a limit of 4 primary partitions which you probably have on your main drive. So HP tools can not create another partition.

 

You could download and create a HP diagnostics USB drive which also has more functions from here, at bottom of page:

Hope it helps,
