Is it an old hard drive? Might be that it's dead though I don't know
how you'd confirm that. Also maybe try booting back up in to the
ubuntu live cd (or knoppix etc) and use Gparted to try and
partition/detect your drives with that. Gives a lot more control and
details when something goes wrong. If that doesn't help then I'm sure
someone far more knowledgable than me could point you in the direction
of some command line tools which might help diagnose the problem.

Sorry I can't be more help...hope you get the problem sorted though!
