Are you installing from an USB Flash drive or the CD-ROM?
Also, when you get this error is at the very beginning when launching setup, when selecting a drive to install, or at any other moment during setup?
Your laptop specs would come very handy to help you diagnose your problem.
Would be also good to know if you're trying to install to HDD or SSD, etc.
