You say that you can't see the drive in the installer. I am assuming this is a single internal drive. Since you have already made and formatted partitions in Gparted, did you use the manual partitioning mode in the installer? If so you should have seen your pre-made partitions. If not, I would first expect a bad burn of the install CD. If gparted could see and make partitions for you then so should the installer.

Boot the live desktop, and if this is your only hdd it would be called /dev/sda, in terminal execute:
sudo dmraid -E -r /dev/sda
sudo apt-get remove dmraid
