18446744TB seen by Fedora installer / wont install /


I'm trying to install Fedora 14 or 15 on my Laptop but the installation fails due to the installer seeing 18446744TB of 'free' disk space.

It suggests that I re-initialize the disk.

see attached pics

I ran GParted but it sees NO Partitions whatsoever

I use Vista Business on this laptop with installed Windows applications and my data (docs / emails / photos / music)

I want to have dual boot capability Vista or Fedora

I do not want to re-format the drive
I do not want to spend hours / days installing + copying files for Vista / Applications / Data / service packs / updates etc etc

QUESTION..... How do I fix the Hard Disk problem of this wierd 18446744TB of 'free' space ?

Its impossible to have 18446744TB of free space as the disk is 320G
I bought this laptop new.
I was the first to turn it on.
Laptop details
Manuf = Lenovo
Model = T400
HD = 320G
OS = Vista Business 32 bit
uP = Intel Core 2 duo 2.53GHz
