Ubuntu 9.10 partitioner does not see my XP install

I have a fresh XP installation on my 640gb HDD. When I go to install Ubuntu 9.10 (either directly from the Live CD or from the main disk menu), you would go through the installation menu like normal.

Instead of going to the screen with the colored bars that let you configure where and how you want to install Ubuntu, it gets me to the "Prepare Partitions" screen ( but does not show any HDD's or partitions to install to.

Any ideas of why this is happening?

640gb SATA, no RAID.

Is it a basic disk or a dynamic disk?
