setup error on windows install

There are no partitions and the space is all unallocated yet every time I try to get windows 7 to install I get" setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the set up log files for more info. I tried to talk to dell and they won't help. And I cannot figure it out even after all the googling I've done. Thanks

Define a primary, active partition of appr. 50GB on that disk. You can do that with disk management. Then install into that partition.

It shows how to create a primary active partition in the tutorial. So obviously you have not followed the steps in the tutorial completely which is what's required to troubleshoot these issues.

Test the hard drive with the makers Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Then run a full Disk Check on the full disk partition you created and marked Active.

Is there any way to post a shot of these setup files.

It`s sounds like you are trying to install to a GPT disk, even though it`s unallocated.
