[ubuntu-uk] 12.04 Installer Doesn't Detect Partitions

I ran "chkdsk /f" on all partitions on the drive that Windows understands,
and still no luck with the Ubuntu installer detecting them.

I checked in GParted and the entire drive shows as "unallocated". I guess
this means there's some serious error somewhere on my disk?
I'll start backing up some important stuff, but is there any way to fix
this without removing partitions?
