Problems with Installing a Dual-Boot System - HELP!
I have tried both now, with two results:
1) GParted can't create an NTFS partition within Ubuntu 9.10.
2) On the other hand, the Windows 7 Installer says that Windows can not create a partition or find a partition when I attempt to select the "unallocated" portion.

Boot up the live cd and of Ubuntu 9.10. Do your formatting with Gparted while running Live CD.
Edit: if you have no access to your Ubuntu 9.10 Cd. Download and burn a Parted Magic Live CD and burn with braserio as a iso image to cd and format drive with it.

If it doesn't partition, open Terminal and execute this
sudo fdisk -l
