Try deleting the bootcamp partition with the bootcamp assistant app and then create a new "regular" partition with Disk Utiity. Install ML there.

you do not have to remove the NTFS partition and/or create an HFS partition.
Forget who or what is good or not, the error occured first in 10.7.0 because it failed to and was fixed later in Lion in 10.7.1.
Windows does - and there are 3rd party utilities - that work with Boot Camp - to allow backup and restore (just not TimeMachine of course).
XP though is on the chopping blocks but there are workarounds, though a clean/custom upgrade from that (dirty?) OS to Windows 7 or 8 would be preferable and supported (Lion dropped XP and Vista).

OS X Lion: "Some features of Mac OS X Lion are not supported for the disk (volume name)" appears during installation
What can I do ensure I get all OS X Lion features?
Make a full backup of your hard disk and all of its data (including your Boot Camp partition, which is not normally backed up by Time Machine), then erase your hard disk and create a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) partition.
Reinstall Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, then re-download the OS X Lion installer from the Mac App Store and retry your install.
If you use Boot Camp, you can run Boot Camp Assistant after installing OS X Lion to create a new Boot Camp partition, then restore the data from the backup you made of your previous Boot Camp partition.
You can also use the OS X Lion installer from the Mac App Store to create an external bootable drive, complete with a Recovery HD partition. See this article for more details. This approach will, at least, create a bootable drive with Recovery HD which you can carry with you in case you need to use Internet Restore or make use of the other utilities Recovery HD provides.
People have managed to clone their system to external drive.
Carbon Copy Cloner will clone Mac system partitioin and the Recovery Partition.
What one thread from last year and Lion:
I solved the problem by backing up the Bootcamp HD via the disk-utility. Then I removed the Bootcamp Partition and installed Lion w/o problems. After that I recreated the Partition and restored the backup-image.
