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 Windows 7 if that's what your concern is.

I gave you the steps in a tutorial which includes the latest Windows 7 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 Windows 7?

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.
