problem installing vista error 0x8004240f
hi,

unfortunately i used partition magic in my dell laptop running on vista. some error occurred and it got restarted, after which i'm unable to boot my laptop.
when i try to fresh install vista, i unable to create new partiton. it says "Failed to create a new partition on the selected unused space. [Error.0x8004240f]"

Well, not the greatest work around, but if you have access to an XP Installation CD/DVD, you can use it to blast away all allocated space.
I had to create a temporary partition, then delete it and all other 'stuck' partitions went away.
Probably something flaky with the new MBR manager.
