hi Robert,
probably something with the partition (only one partition on this disk?)  
is corrupted.
use a Partition Program from a Rescue-CD to make an empty Partition (empty  
Harddrive?) and then, if there is no failure with that process, Ubuntu  
definitely will be installed.
let me think about a good link for such a disk:
personaly i used a rescue CD with GParted on it, but do not remember the  
link. now, this GParted is also available as a liveCD. try please this.  
the program GParted is a nice one and free for you.
regards, René
