Windows installs only on primary active partition, regardless it's C or D or Z for that matter. You have to set the second partition PRIMARY ACTIVE.
Well NO, at least unless Windows 7 (and just Windows 7) has dramatically changed.
Windows NT/2K/XP/2003 boot files (NTLDR/NTDETECT.COM/BOOT.INI) or Vista/2008 (BOOTMGR/BCD) need normally to be on a Primary partition (unless a boot manager is used) but OS can be installed to a Logical Volume inside Extended allright.
Besides, it is also possible to make a Logical Volume inside Extended "behave" as a Primary partition, by fixing the bootsector.
