dvd is NOT a partition!! it's a volume.

So 4x32GB partitions and one 22 GB (C-partition)
This is a clean install isn't it?
C can be overwritten I assume?
What's on D,E,F etc? and what do you want to keep, so are there any important files on C,D,E etc?

PS: So many partitions is rediculous and they are very small as well
All partitions are on disk 0?

You try to install on C? That's impossible as it's an fat32 partition.
