    I just suffered a nasty virus attack which completely wiped out my C Drive.

    After that I have been trying to create a partition for my C Drive and reinstall Windows 8.1.

    But Diskpart seems to be giving me weird errors.

    Please check attached image.

    Can someone tell me what the correct offset will for creating a partition of 198 GB ?

    hi try this: turn on the machine and wait: then click on the shift button + F10 and in the sequence click diskpart and follow the normal instructions for installing your Windows just follow the instructions that are clear ok :)
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    @sreyan32 did you collect the correct windows 8.1 iso by comparing SHA-1 with original one? Where did you pick up the iso ? Are you in UEFI/GPT ?
    To help you we need more info ? For diskpart the sequence is :
    Launch Diskpart in cmd
    1.List disk
    2. Select disk x (x corresponding of the disk you want to create partitions)
    3. Clean (to delete all)
    4. Convert GPT (if your in UEFI/GPT)....

    Why not boot to USB containing the ISO and have the GUI to do this ?

    Windows setup error code 0xC0000005 : RAM or Hard drive corruption or bad sectors.
    in the present situation, must be the hdd.

    Run any WinPE which have some diagnostics programs and check your drive for errors or bad sectors.
    Reformat and retry Windows setup

    While you're running WinPE, you can even rearrange partitions using 3rd party partition managers, reformat, and then restart to clean install Windows.
