I personally don't have problems with sata drives, but that doesn't mean to say that you won't.
I can suggest two things that you may or may not wish to try. These are suggestions not necessarily solutions - please note.
Firstly use your windows install to download and burn a gparted live cd from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=115843&package_id=271779
(or you could put it on USB if you want). Boot from this and use it to create the partitions you want then try to install using the partitions you have already created.
Secondly, if you don't want to do that then remember this. Linux will run quite happily without any swap partition at all if your machine has a reasonable amount of memory (almost any modern machine these days does). So if it is the creation of a swap partition that makes your installation fail then don't create one, leave some unallocated space so you can create one later if you want (once you have it installed).
One last piece of advice. It is very, very unlikely that you need 5Gb of swap space. 2Gb is about the most you will ever need.
