It is a common and simply error. This may be the problem of limited drive space which is prohibiting installation or your PC thinks that your system is Windows to GO system. Anyway here is what you need to do to get rid of this issue.

1. Press “Windows key  +R” >> Type “regedit” and hit Enter.


2. Next navigate here:


In the left pane of this location go to “PortableOperatingSystem” and right-click on it and next select “Delete” option.

Now close the Registry Editor and reboot the system.

That’s it.
