Windows 7: New Build Windows 7 install stopped by HD/MB issues

New Build Windows 7 install stopped by HD/MB issues

I built a new computer using the following parts:
Mobo- Asus H61M-A/USB3
CPU- Intel i3 3210
HD- Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB
RAM- 8gb Team Vulcan.

So here is my issue, i can go through the Win7 install process up to the point of "where to install windows" at this point i get a error triangle on the bottom left of the window saying "windows cannot be installed to this disk"



I am not sure where to find the disk controller also to make sure it is enabled while in the bios menu.


So then i tried doing the diskpart suggestion that i have seen, and i get this....



So it appears to be seen by the system, but just not able to be used?

I have read about people having issues with this HD and they needed to use jumpers, so i tried putting them on both 5&6 as well as 7&8, but to no avail, and i cant find another jumper to try both.... I am kinda at a loss now.

Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to make the partitions in DISKPART.

Diskpart
Select disk 0
Clean
Convert gpt
Create partition efi size=200
Assign letter=s
Format quick fs=FAT32
Create partition msr size=128
Create partition primary
Assign letter=c
Format quick fs=NTFS

I have seen the installing with uEFI post before, it is not really much different than ever before. But that does not solve my problem still. Windows is saying that my HD isnt bootable? I am not sure what else to try?

You can try downloading the bootable CD version of Partition Wizard to initialize and format the HDD.
The HDD manufacturer may have a bootable drive diagnostics utility.

I dont know if it is a partition issue, or more of a compatibility issue. I am just not sure what else to try? Might just buy another new hd and see if that one works. I am at a loss at this point?
