That's what I thought and thought I may have been just one of those things, so I tried it again and the same exact thing happened. I deleted all my partitions and set it to install on the "empty" hard drive. I did notice when I went to reformat it again to see if the would fix it there was 8MB of unpartitioned space that looked like it was apart from windows.
Here are my system specs:
# Processor: 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T5470 (2MB L2 Cache,800MHz FSB)
# Hard Drive: 120GB SATA hard drive (5400RPM)
# Memory: 1GB RAM (PC5300, 667 MHz, DDR2 SDRAM) -- 4GB max memory
# Optical Drive: DVD+-R Double layer / DVD+-RW Drive (Blu-ray drive optional)
# Ports and Slots: Four USB 2.0, one FireWire 400 port, one ExpressCard slot, one S-Video, one VGA, one 8-in-1 card reader, headphone / line-out, microphone-in, modem, 10/100 Ethernet
# Wireless: WiFi (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.0
# Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS (128MB)
# Operating System: Windows XP Pro

I think that's what you're asking for. It's a Dell Vostro 1500. These are the specs from a site because when I click on properties of my computer it gives me the same error message. Also, I have reformatted before with this disk and it has worked fine. Thanks for looking into this for me.
