Installation issue

Hello, I recently tried to reinstall windows 7, I booted using the windows dvd, started the custom installation option and when my hard disks screen came up i deleted all the existing partitions so the windows could create a new one. the problem is that windows wont create a partition, for reasons unknown to me, and aborts the istallation process. Furthermore my comp stopped booting from the disk and it keeps asking for the istallation disk. what can i do?

Hello Redmore83, welcome to Seven Forums!



First:

If the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

Second:

After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "secure erase" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including the old Windows drivers, everything all data, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.
