I think the warning not going away is normal. If it comes up as finished I think you are good to go. To make sure reboot the computer with PartedMagic and check the drive to see if any data is on it. You can use Gparted Partition Manager on the PartedMagic Disk. You should see a disk that it unallocated.

Power down the computer. Reboot with the Parted Magic Disk. Do you still show that error box in the desktop? If not run Gparted and look at your hard drive. It should show unallocated.

You do not need to create a partition table with Gparted. Windows 7 will create your system reserved partition and Windows partition automatically during the install.
Edit: The I/O error on the drive indicates a possible failing drive. Were you having issues with the drive before you deleted the data?
Edit Edit: Is the drive being connected via USB?

See my edited post. Hopefully Windows 7 will not have a problem detecting he drive.
Here is a guide on doing the Windows 7 install. You will not see any partitions as shown in the guide. Simply press next at this window.
