you were suppose to select yes to delete the partition anyway if you had booted from the cd. setup would have copied new files to the install
your main problem was that you tried to install from within windows when cause you all of the problems. you never install a fresh install from within windows unless you are installing it acrooss a network that has a computer that doesn't have a cd rom to boot from.
