OK, I'll clean install then, it does seem like I've tried all other methods given
As long as I have your advice here, what do you think about Intel Rapid Storage Technology (installing Windows on my HDD and using the 60gb SSD as cache). I had this originally set up by CyberPowerPC but I experienced issues and re-installed windows onto the SSD. Maybe if I use the official windows7 installer you provided, I will not experience the same issues I did the first time?
Thanks again for all your help guys
