When I put in
format fs=ntfs label = "Windows 7"
there is a message that comes up saying:
There is no volume selected.
Please select a volume and try again

Try this instead:

diskpart
select disk 0
Create partition primart align=1024
format fs=ntfs quick
active
exit
exit

Ok, after typing in format fs=ntfs quick I get the same message saying There is no volume selected.
But before typing in format fs=ntfs quick, I get a list of options after typing in Create partition primart align=1024:
EFI - Create an EFI system partition
EXTENDED - Create an extended partition
LOGICAL - Create a logical drive
MSR - Create a Microsoft Reserved partition
PRIMARY - Create a primary partition

Mmmm. I'm missing something.

Its not the HDD as Ubuntu was installed to it. Can you try and burn the Windows 7 ISO to another DVD, but this time burn at 4x speed? I don't think thats the issue, but it would help to tick that off the list.

I can't, at least not right now, I ran out of DVD's, and the ones I have aren't re-writable

Do you have a 4GB USB flash drive lying around? We can use that instead....

OK. Be careful...the entire flash drive will be formatted when the ISO is loaded onto it.
