Hello
\015\012
\015\012I'm assuming this is a brand new hard drive? If it is then it's defective. If this is a hard drive from another computer then it needs to have the old partition table removed. If you have another computer download any partition manager from www.download.com. Delete the partition and then your OS should install just fine. If you don't have another computer, you can still download a partition manager at the local library.
