Your problem is likely related to the disk being a dynamic disk. If you don't have data that you need to protect, you will need to remove all disks from your system except the one that you want to install onto. Then you will need to delete all partitions. Then install Windows onto the disk and allow it to create its own partitions and volumes. After that, connect all disks that you want on the system.
