I just built a new gaming pc and got windows 8.1, but when I try and install it, it says "Windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 1" I've tried these two methods http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/i-cant-install-windows-8 but neither of them worked.

Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qRG96h

UPDATE:
I have figured out what the problem was! I had a keyboard plugged into the front usb ports, To fix the problem I just plugged the keyboard into the back usb ports. (I think Windows was thinking my keyboard was an HDD or SSD)

When it comes to selecting Drives for the installation,
Click on Drive options. Then it'll give you tools to deal with partitions.
Try deleting every partition and creating them again. Then select the second partition(Since it creates the first partition for the bootrecords and stuff - usually this'll be about 300MB partition) and install windows on it.
