You'll need to wipe the HD as it's likely converted to Dynamic disk.

Try this method first using Clean All command. If it fails tell us exactly where and any error message: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

You can also boot free Partition Wizard CD to Wipe HD from Disk tab. It will autostart itself at boot. This will force installer to also autostart. Choose Custom install and just click Next to let installer create partition.
