Cannot Create a New Partition Error 0xaab4a9f0

I was working on a Lenovo u510 that had an issue with the MBR and the HDD. I took the HDD out of the laptop and placed it inside another computer. I took all of the users data off the drive and formated it. After formating the HDD I placed it back into the laptop. I started to reinstall Windows 8.1 on the HDD. I got to the part of the installation when you have to tell it what partition it should be on. That is when it gave me this error “Cannot Create a New Partition Error 0xaab4a9f0“. If you ever come across this error and want to know how to fix it. Here are the quick steps to do it.
