volume erase failed, coudnt modify partition map... I have also tried up things with gparted, easeus and other softwares, tried converting ntfs to hfs+ but still i get the same thing... But one more thing when my computer's hardrive was empty that is there were no partitions i didnt get this type of error... maybe windows is messing up with the installation... PLease help me... I could erase my hardrive but i dont want to loose my important windows software....
