Re: hp recovery windows 8 incomplete error

Please boot the system with Windows 8 Pro disk...when selecting the drive to install Windows, you can remove all the parititions, create 1 partition with 100GB as you wished which would be C drive and continue installing Windows. Once you install it successfully, you can make the rest of the hard drive space into the paritions you wanted.
