Retrieve your files: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console - Windows 7 Forums.url

Boot the Windows 7 DVD, use Custom>Drive Tools to format the Vista partition before install.

I'd leave the Recovery Partition as you may want to run it someday to restore Vista. If not, you can wipe the entire HD first to get the cleanest possible install: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation - Windows 7 Forums.url

Then Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums.URL

Welcome to SF. Please fill out your system specs. You weren't upgrading from Vista 32-bit to Win 7 64-bit, were you?
Can you still get Vista up? If yes, you need to backup your critical files. Then do a clean install.

I suggest a clean install or get rid of those conflicts.

A clean is always best.
