How do you want to run Windows and what do you want to do with it?
Booting Windows on the Mac

Do you have the DVD ready or just the ISO file?
Have you ever installed Windows?

I open my disk utility I have :
500.1 GB Toshiiba
Mactintosh HD
Mactintosh HD2
Win7C
Bootcamp

Why do you have HD2 and Win7C?
Open About this Mac and see your storage.
See if its partitioned anything else than your Mac HDD.
Im guessing your HD2 is the problem.
