Stuck with install

Hello friends, I've been running Windows 7 pro & decided to upgrade to Windows7 Ultimate. I've put the install disk in & when it gets to the part where I have to choose where its installed to, the box is empty. I think it might be a problem with the motherboard driver & have downloaded the driver ( I think ) but cant figure out how to install it. Has anyone else had this problem & if so do you know what I should do. I am not to clever with PCs so if there is a solution could you please tell me in an easy to understand way please.

What makes you think that is true?

Is this Windows 7 Ultimate Disc something you burned? Bought online? Bought in a retail store? Borrowed?

Hi, Im not sure that it is the motherboard driver im just clutching at straws to be honest. All I know is that when I come to install it the partition box is empty. I bought the disk at the local PC shop some months ago & decided to do it today, wish I had left it alone now !

Is your original Win 7 Pro installation intact and working OK?

Can you post a screen shot of the final step you can get to in the installation process, showing that checkbox?

Did you get a 25 character Product Key with the Ultimate disc and is it valid, according to Microsoft?

It gets to 18% of expanding Windows file. Then the status message alternates between progress and "Windows needs to restart your computer." Does not restart. EDIT: Had malware that prevented System Restore from working. Fixed that. Could they be related?
