Ok, great. Just let me know. I am not familiar with Spinrite, but for the cost, it should be pretty good, but as you know, cost does not always mean that much.

HDD test results

I got the Seagate Tools working. Passed both long and short generic tests. I will be away for a couple of days. I look forward to more work. Cheerio.

First, disconnect 1 wire from every hard drive you have except the 1 drive you want Windows installed on.

Next boot from the installation DVD or USB drive (Yes, you can put the installation DVD on a USB drive). When you get to the first screen where it asks You to choose your language, don't choose. Hold down shift and press F10, you will get a command prompt. Type these commands and press enter after each one, then wait for the command prompt to respond.
diskpart
list disk
select disk 0 (number 0 not letter. Diskpart will assign each drive a number, since you only have 1 drive connected your drive should be 0, if not use the correct number)
clean all ( go have lunch or something, it will take several hours. But it will be perfectly clean when you get through. Nothing will survive) It will tell you when it's through. it will say diskpart succeeded in cleaning the disk. It will look like nothing is happening, but it is working. I would guess 3-4hours.

create partition primary - it will create a partition of the whole drive.
exit and press enter will take you back to X sources where you were
exit and press enter again will take you back to the choose your language screen.
continue and install as normal. Select the drive and click install.
Anything you don't understand, just ask. so, the commands you will give and press enter after easc one and the response you will receive are.
diskpart reply will take a few seconds but will reply diskpart
list disk it will reply showing each disk in the machine. You should have only 1, numbered 0.
select disk 0 reply will be disk 0 is the selected disk
clean all reply will be diskpart succeeded in cleaning the selected disk - after a few hours
create partition primary response will be diskpart created the specified partition, will be of the whole disk.
exit response will be X sources
exit and the window will close and you will be back where you started.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. You can do anything you want. If you do not want the 100 MB System Reserved, let me know. If you want to install windows on just part of the drive and have another partition for data or storage, let me know. If you have a problem, let me know.

Before you start, go to the motherboard's web site and download the chipset driver and the Lan driver. If you are using Wireless get that driver also download the graphics driver from either AMD or Nvidia whichever card you have. (I don't remember) after the install is complete. Put them onto a USB drive or CD when you download them, so you can install them later. For a day or so, don't connect any other drives. Also, before you start the install, back up all of your personal files, music, pictures, Documents and such to another drive, preferably to an external drive.

Once the install is complete and you are on the desktop, install the Chipset driver, then the Lan driver (to enable you to connect to the internet unless Windows installed it for you, then the graphics driver) Next run all of the Windows updates, there will be over 100. Just look at them and don't install the graphics driver if it chooses one. After all of the updates are finished, install Microsoft security essentials Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows as an AV, then install nothing else. keep it that way for a few days and see how it runs. We will know that there are no driver problems if it does not BSOD. Keep it a completely clean install.

Did the install go OK? Any problems? Try to just let it run the way it is for a few days or until you are sure, it's stable. Then slowly add 1 program at a time and test it after each one until you find the one causing you problems. yea, I know it's a pain, but sometimes that's the way it has to be done to find out.
