Huh, if I did understand your question, it seems you're asking a question about the windows installation rather than about linux ...

press F3 to exit installation
what must I do ????
try to press F3 ;-)

Try to format your disk 'by hand' with tools like fdisk and and see if it works better...

I don't have any idea about what 'sif-data' could be ...
