Windows 7 setup issue

i just upgraded my system and am trying to re-install windows 7.

i was having trouble loading windows on start up so i decided to create a fresh install.

i have a core i5 cpu and an Asus p7p55D EVO motherboard and 6gb of ocz ddr3 ram and an EVGA GTS450 video card. a 500gb hard drive and a 150gb raptor drive.

i deleted my partitons and formated and created new partitions to install windows. when i get the the screen that asks where to install windows i get this message:

Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information.

Any suggestions, ideas?!

Thanks in advance!

i deleted the partitions through the windows install cd, just like i have done in the past. i would assume they default to this.

Did you let windows create the partition. I suggest delete all partitions. Then let windows create the primary partition to the size you want. You can then use the free space to create extra partitions later under disk manager
i tried that before. i did it again and got the same result. i created a new partition for the entire drive and when i hit next i still get the same error.
you should use gpart off a systemrecuse cd format it fully dont quick format it will take time but should releave your issue
