Try clicking drive options, deleting the partitions and formatting the volume.

Try this:

When you get to the screen to Install.... You need to go to Advance Options

When you see all your drives and partitons... just DELETE all those extra partitions you see... until everything becomes Free Space. Then CREATE a new partition and then FORMAT... Now Windows should install OK.
