    intel SSD DC P3520 failed to install Windows Server 2012 R2 with the error "We couldn't create a partition or locate an existing one"

    Baldwin

      I have got the problem that my server can't install Windows Server 2012 R2. There are 4 SSD connected to my server, three are Intel SSD DC P3520 Series 450G and one is Intel SSD DC P3520
      Series 2.0TB. All of the disks are unallocated space. And when I tried to select  the drive to install the system, the error "We couldn't create a partition or locate an existing one" was listed.  The details

      were "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's Bios menu." 

       

      Because  the boot mode is legacy, I tried to change disk partition format  to mbr by dispart command. However,it doesn't work. Now  I have no idea about this problem, could you please help me?

      Thanks in advance.
