  1. Remove the partition and install to the empty space. I think you partitioned the entire disk leaving no room for Windows to create the boot partition
  2. Disk 0 Partition 1 could be the Dell restore partition which you shouldn't remove unless you have made backup DVD's.
  3. das_stig may be right. What is the size of that partition? you should be able to see it when you are running windows setup.
