Here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna get a full version of xp and install it (since that's as close as i came to installing windows). After I'll upgrade to xp with the other version I have...hopefully this works. I'll keep you guys posted.

Why would you do that? You don't need XP installed to use the Upgrade version of Win7 if that's what your concern is.

I gave you the steps in a tutorial which includes the latest Win7 installer ISO and the MS tool to download it, which you must have missed or ignored for some reason. Use that to get a working flash stick installer, boot it and wipe the HD as I suggested.

Don't get upset friend but to ME you explanation was a little too complicated. Anyways, I have done what I listed above and fixed the problem.

Thanks folks for all your help!!!!

You never asked back a single question to indicate you didn't understand the steps given.

Did you install Win7?

Once again I apologize but at the same time I was trying different things on my end which to my limited computer skills seemed easier. Yes windows 7 has been installed with drivers and everything. Not much of a day off ahahah.

Again, thanks for your help!

No need to apologize. Just wish I could have helped more.

If you stick to the methods and tools in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then you'll maintain a perfect reinstall.
