Hi,

Dell Precision M6800 comes with three drives.  OS is getting installed on disk 1 instead of disk 0 . Disk 0 show as (active, recovery partition) and pretty much cannot be used. Disk 2 is usable after formatting.

Current Pre-installation tasks :

 

select volume 0
remove all noerr
select disk 0
clean
create partition primary
set id=27 override noerr
select disk 1
clean
create partition primary
set id=27 override noerr
select disk 2
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
assign letter=c
Format quick fs=NTFS
exit

 

How do I need to change so that OS gets installed on disk 0 and disk 1 and disk 2 are formatted as healthy primary partition.

Thanks,

The sequence of events in your diskpart script looks wrong to me - you appear to be setting partition 1 on disk 2 as the active partition.  What I would recommend first of all, is that you check that the disk numbering as seen from WInPE is the same as the disk numbering you are seeing from a physical viewpoint. Then I would run the script something like this:

select disk 2
clean
create partition primary
set id=27 override noerr
select disk 1
clean
create partition primary
set id=27 override noerr
select disk 0
clean
create partition primary
active
assign letter=c
Format quick fs=NTFS
exit
