Default Help, cannot install windows vista

Im stuck in a location where it ask me "Where do you want to install Windows?"

And I select the drive I want to install it in and there is a warning below saying....

"This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk controller is enabled in the Computer's BIOS menu."

So at first, i just clicked next but it says ....

"Windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation."

So I restarted the computer went to my BIOS menu and enabled that boot setup and made sure it was 1st priority was in the raptor hard drive.

So i put the disk again and still at the same spot im stuck and it says the same thing as it did before.

Do you guys have any idea what is wrong?
