We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one.

So I was doing a clean install of windows 10 using a USB and I deleted all the partitions including the system reserve one. The only drive left now is "Drive 0 Partition 1". It is set as primary. 

The problem is everything I click to continue the installation, I get the error "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one."

I followed instructions from sites such as this, https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/asiasupp/2012/03/06/error-we-couldnt-create-a-new-partition-or-locate-an-existing-one-for-more-information-see-the-setup-log-files-when-you-try-to-install-windows-8-cp/ and I still got the same error.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help.
