It happens sometimes that the Live CD installer doesn't find the HD in the computer. The usual advice is to try the alternate CD, which has a different partitioning tool, and generally solves the problem. I had the problem, and the alternate CD was the solution.

I have no idea if you can make a USB installer out of the alternate CD, or if you can, how to do it.
