    I get this error trying to install x64 [from memory, but mostly verbatim]:

    "Setup cannot format the partition. Your computer may not have enough
    memory to perform this operation [it sure does!] or your Windows Cd-ROM may
    contain some corrupted files [it sure doesn't--I verified those files byte
    by byte with the MSDN source files]."

    I thought it might be the SATA/RAID drivers, which I added to the CD, but
    Windows recognizes the drive, and has no problem creating and deleting
    partitions. It just doesn't want to format them. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Never mind, resolved problem--it looks like an issue with nlite and SATA
    driver integration.
