Do the ROMs you are trying to install require an sdcard partition. Most do, and you'll need one anyway to install several apps.

- Flash 4EXT recovery.img using fastboot (better recovery, makes good partitions for desire unlike CWM)
- Backup and partition your sdcard using 4EXT recovery (max 2GB ext4 partition, no swap)
- Check md5sum of ROM.zip, to make sure you didnt get a bad download
- Full wipe and flash ROM.zip
Device: Nexus 5 | ROM: SlimKat | Recovery: PhilZ Touch
Retired: HTC Desire

Yh so like eddie said u will need to partition ur sdcard for that rom. Theres a good guide in desire general "how to partition sdcard correctly" follow that guide and then u can flash roms. The reason is that the desire has bad/low memory so the sdext partition is needed, definitly for sense roms.
