OH Smeg

That the Partitions you created are NTFS Partitions which the Linux Installer can not use. Linux uses a different File Table and you can not install any form of Nix onto a NTFS Partition. You need to delete the partitions and use the Linux Partitioning Tool to make the necessary Partitions for you to install into.

Remember most Nixes create 3 Partitions to install the OS and Software on the Disc unlike the Windows which installs into one.

That is of course if I am reading your question as you intended that you can see the partitions but not format or install any form of Linux to them.
