Advice Needed - Trouble trying to dual boot Win7 x64

Alright so it's late and I'm tired and frustrated trying to find an answer on my own.
I'm trying to change up my OS from WinXP x64 to Win7 x64. I'm sick of XP x64 and I'm basically just working to move things over from my IDE HDs to SATA 2 HDs.
I have my two new SATA HDs formatted, set up and ready to go, a 250GB and a 2TB, I'm trying to install Win7 on the 250GB. I'm trying to just dual boot Win7 just to make sure everything works before tearing out the IDE HD that XP is running on but every time I select the HD I want to install on it gives me the error "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition."
I'm not really sure where to go at this point. I know a little, but I'm certainly no wizard about computers so I'm hoping for some aid.
