Windows could not format a partition on disk0

I'm getting this error whilst trying to install Windows Vista X64 on my
Samsung Spinpoint F1 500GB.

> Windows could not format a partition on disk0. The error occured while
> preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code:
> 0x80070057


I can't understand why, my other data hard disks are disconnected. I
formatted the disk to begin with, but now, I can neither install the OS
or format it again (with Windows).

Any ideas?

Sorry, close this. Found I had to delete the existing partition, format
the disk and create a new partition.
