ASUS utilty install problem

Last response: in Windows XP

I have successfully swapped motherboards and am running an ASUS P5Q Pro.
My system:

Intel e6600 Core 2 Duo @2.40GHz
Noctua NH-U12P Cooler
OCZ Reaper 2X2GB DDR2 800 (PC 6400)
EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 640 MB
WD 250GB GB SATA II Formatted NTSF (2 partitions:"C" and "F")
Corsair CMPSU 550W
Windows XP home

I have been trying to install the Express Gate utility that comes with the board into my "C" drive. I can only install until I get the window "Choose target volume\Target volume: I get C: (unsupported type) (146.482GB)" The next window shows: "Compressed volume not supported! Please choose another volume." I don't have a clue as to what this means.
I have not been able to Google a help on this. I feel that it may have something with my HDD being formatted NTSF. I have not been able to get a response from ASUS Online Technical Service. Any help will be appreciated.

When installing new hardware its a good idea to do a reinstall.
