Are you trying to create it, create logical drives in it or remove it?

FelixTCat: Create logical drive to install system. Setup tells me it cannot find room but it is 40gig with nothing on.

i think you may have a raw partition, did you opt to format the drive during installation? is the drive new?

Chezdez: I did opt to format and it did one tiny partition 8mbs, I don't even know how it got there.
The drive is five months old. After the mini format I tried to install on the rest of the drive but it said there was not enough room.

ah!!

i see

ok, put your windows CD in the drive, and boot up from CD, then, delete all partitions, and format, but make sure you format everything (you will be left with 8MB unformatted space)

i can't remember what the install screens are like, but if you just carefully read each page, it is pretty straight forward

what you've done is formatted the smallest possible amount!
