Use of ICE's DiskConfiguration to CreatePartitions and ModifyPartitions. Creating 4 Primary partitions, 3 with fixed sizes and the last is extended to fill the size of the remaining disk. Single hard drive.
Start with single unallocated partition when queried for where I want to install windows.
"Windows could not create a partition on disk 0. The target disk, partition, or voume does not support the specified operation. The error occurred while preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80300024. See setup log files under [X:\windows\panther] for details."
The setuperr.log file contains
2010-07-06 10:50:22, Error PnPIBS: Error 0xE0000100 occurred while determining the class of INF G:\\AutoUnattend_Files\windowsPE\Out-of-Box Drivers\Graphics\autorun.inf.
2010-07-06 11:04:52, Error [0x060498] IBS ValidateOperation:Specified disk/region does not support [CanCreate].

2010-07-06 11:04:55, Error [0x060350] IBS CallBack_PrepareInstallDrive:An error occurred while preparing install drive hr = 0x80300024
If I ignore the error and just reboot, I will see all 4 partitions created correctly and I can select the partition where I want the OS installed and it will continue successfully to completion the 2nd time.
Is there a way to avoid this error?

FYI to others who may run across this problem:
For some reason, the disk configuration settings in Joe's answer file are causing a problem with IBW. He created 4 partitions, specified that the OS should be installed to the 2nd partition, and also set the WillShowUI setting to Always. The Always setting is for some reason causing the problem. Changing this setting to Never allowed installation to continue as normal.
We're not sure what exactly is causing this failure, but will investigate and potentially release a fix in our next update.

WillShowUI=OnError is also a workaround.
This has been a problem since Quebec. It's still a problem with WES7 SP1 CTP.
If you select the disk where windows is to be installed, the Install Windows error pop-up box reads
Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install Windows, restart the installation.
See setup log files under [X:\window\panther] for details.
The setuperr.log file reads
2011-02-23 19:00:26, Error PnPIBS: Error 0xE0000100 occurred while determining the class of INF I:\\AutoUnattend_Files\windowsPE\Out-of-Box Drivers\Graphics\autorun.inf.

So I go ahead and restart the installation. This time 4 partitions show up and is ready to go. I select the partition where the OS is to resides and the rest of installation proceeds properly.
This issue has not been fixed since the beginning of WES 2011 CTP Quebec.
