Mint doesn`t see windows

Hi,
I`m trying to dual boot mint with win 7 on my laptop a toshiba C870-18V. It did come with win 8 on it, but i wiped it and put 7 on.
So when i try to install mint lts it shows that the whole hdd is empty no sign of win 7 ,why is this , is it because it had `8` on before
Cheers Tony
