You don't need System Reserved (only good for Bitlocker encryption). It doesn't hurt to be there but since you are doing this now, just remove it.

OK, so just delete both of these? Then install to an unallocated space?

OK, and now it's on the 'Expanding Windows Files' but going really slow. Took about 5 minutes to reach 10%. I'll let it run its course anyway.

Edit: maybe this is normal, I'm not sure!

OK, it seems to have installed, I am at the desktop now. I just have to install WiFi adapter, then try grab all of the specific drivers. I will give an update tomorrow, I will be heading off in a few mins. Main aim is to test the SSD with the benchmark.

Thanks for the help

Please stick with the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which should have answered your question about deleting partitions during install. The steps for drivers are so important they are printed in red so please don't use XPired methods for a driver-complete OS.

You will get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the steps, tools and methods in that tutorial.

OK, I will stick to that, thanks. I had just installed a chipset driver that is on the dell driver downloads for my specific model, hopefully this is OK. I will carefully try to follow your steps moving forward.I am going to head off now as it's later now. I will keep you posted in the next day or so.

Yes, chipset drivers should be first. Anyway, I won't interfere with the order in tutorial. Waiting for that AS SSD bench!

It tells me I have 195 important updates to install. Is it recommended to install all of these? Also, there are a few optional ones.

Yes, it is important to keep the OS up-to-date. Optional can wait, you don't need them at the moment.
