aslong as you don't need any info on that drive, delete all partitions on the drive you are using (looks like drive 0), and then you should be able to install on it just fine. alternatively, you could pull up a cmd with "shift+f10" and clean the drive with diskpart.

Select all partitions named "Drive 0" and press Delete. Once Drive 0 is named "Drive 0 Unallocated Space", select it and press "Next".

Remove all the other partitions and try again. You shouldn't have that many partitions on one drive.

I can't delete them.

are you sure it's not just the one labeled "unallocated space" that you can't delete? in that case, there is nothing to delete. delete all the other partitions so the whole drive becomes unallocated space, then hit new, then you can install.

Thanks guys I solved the issue. I basically had a really bad install of XP and 10 on the hard drive and it killed it
