At the BIOS where the supposed problem emanates from is clean and taking to the instruction for solution proffered below by the given error message to set appropriate levels to default has not yielded any positive result. Going further into the 'advanced settings' for the drive to accept the installation as instructed only to find out nothing has changed that much. It looks as if there is quite no effect made to the way the hard drive is addressed and still no changes in all ramification to arrest the situation.
A further look at the hard disk, by taking it out and testing it in another system works like charm. In that case, a little tweaking at the advanced setting in the BIOS is necessary or simply revert Settings to 'default' will be helpful. If it repeats the same error on another system then there is every chance the hard disk drive (HDD) has malfunctioned. Replacing it would be the best alternative way to complete the Windows setup.
The cause of this problem usually comes from the inability of the hard disk drive to respond and communicate properly due to something preventing it from doing so. It could be both hardware and software related problem. In the troubleshooting processes effort should be channeled largely toward focus on software and hardware areas. There is nothing wrong in applying any disk utility application available out there first yet it is sometimes time-wasting(though,one could be learning something new). Resorting to long test while in haste to make use of the system than purchasing a new working drive can be more disturbing at times.
