Windows 7: Restore Factory Settings after Clean Install for Win7

21 Jan 2010   #11


If HP Win7 DVD will not boot to format Vista, then run it from Vista to install over Vista or to a second partition you create in Disk Management: Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista

Later we can help you remove Vista if you want.

Make sure you have the BIOS boot order set to boot from DVD and try again: Boot from CD - How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

Look also for a Boot Menu shortcut key given on first bootup screen to trigger DVD drive.

Here are the steps for a clean install: Clean Install Windows 7
