Please explain better. What drive are you trying to install to? Internal ? External? If internal, is it the only drive or is there another one? Is the BIOS set so that drive is bootable? In the boot order? Is it a standard hard drive (IDE or SATA, etc.), an SSD (SATA or PCIe, etc.), or if external (USB, eSATA, etc.)? What version of Windows are you trying to install (XP, W7, W8, etc)?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sounds like you are installing a new operating system.

Are you doing it from a CD?
Or,
Are you doing it from a thumb/usb drive?

If so, what operating system?
