if you have an old windows 98 cd ,boot it up and delete the partitions using the fdisk command. if not use windows xp or vista they both do the same job. once the partitions are deleted reboot the machine using the quick dvd from linuxmce.org .this should fix your error when copying to the harddrive.

REMEMBER that if you delete the partitions any os system will be gone .hope this helps.
