Normally, this has to do with existing partitions, delete any existing ones at hdd selection screen during install?

I'm still having troble. I tried installing xbuntu I could load the live cd but it said error when I tried installing the harddrive. The hardrive is found fine in the bio. I tried changing the boot order no luck. Brand new harddrive no other harddrives in there. Any ideas?
