You need to allocate the space by partitioning the drive and formatting the space.

There is an option at the bottom right, called "Drive options" click that so format the drive (usually NTFS).

This may be the issue im trying to run a upgrade version of vista and its saying to use the product key you must have a genuine version of windows. Maybe thats why its not letting me select next cause its only a upgrade version :/  but im able to partion the drive just not able to select next to began the installation.

I guess it is looking for old XP files, in which case you will have to install XP first to use the upgrade.
