I should of popped back. I figured it out after a lot of searching. It seems the partition needed to be set active. As soon as I did that it installed without a problem, though I could notice a serious time difference in the install time on my laptop vs my desktop. I did need to recover grub of course afterwards but it seems okay now.
I have no idea why it needed to be set active. My desktop partition I installed wasn't set active, but it already had XP on it in addition to Linux, while my laptop just had Linux on it. Maybe that is what made the difference.
