    How many partitions are there in your HD? Could you post partition structure along with filesystem of each partition here?

    Boot up from Fedora LiveCD or any Linux LiveCD and execute this command in Terminal/Konsole
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    Post output here.

    Boot up from Fedora LiveCD and open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    su -
    dd   if=/dev/zero   of=/dev/sda   bs=512   count=1
    This command will *wipe* your Hard Disk. Your Harddisk will not have any partition or data. Windows Installation CD will work after that.
    In case you dont have Fedora LiveCD or it doesn't work, download PartedMagic LiveCD, boot up from it and execute 'dd' command in Terminal.

    Boot up from Ubuntu CD and open Terminal. Execute this
    Code:
    sudo dd   if=/dev/zero   of=/dev/sda   bs=512   count=1
    It will sort out your problem.

    >This command will *wipe* your Hard Disk. Your Harddisk will not have any partition or data.
    Not to be pedantic, but that command only erases the MBR of a hard disk. Data is still present on the hard disk, although without a partition table, operating systems will have no way of accessing it. However, in some cases I've heard of people having to write zeros over the entire hard drive in order to get the Windows installer to work. If wiping the MBR doesn't work, I'd recommend the following command:
    Code:
    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda
    It'll take quite a bit longer than the other command, but when it's done, your hard drive will contain nothing but zeros. (Well, in theory. In practice it's impossible to completely erase a hard drive.)
