Windows having trouble creating system partition on disk.

Hi, 

 

I am building a new computer and it boots into Windows 7 setup fine, but when I get to the choose your partition stage in the setup I get this error:

 

Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information. 

 

My system specs are: 

 

Cpu: Amd A6-3670

Ram: 8 Gb Brandless Ram

Motherboard: Asrock A55M-DGS

GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD 4560

 

Thanks,

Colonel Artemis
