Y570 windows reinstall failed

[ Edited ]

At first, sorry for my bad English, during last time I haven't got enough practice.

 Let's come to my problem. I've tried to reinstall Windows 7 on my PC (Lenovo Y570s1), so I totally failed. I just don't know why, I can't do it in the same way I used to on other PC, but installing programm said (don't know is it right to say so) that it's forbidden to install system on local drive because it's reserved by lenovo corporation (I really tried to translate that message ). Anyone knows why I can't install windows 7? I'd be very grateful for any help. If you need some more information, please tell me which one.

P.S. I have partitionned my local drive on two parts.
