Windows 7: Clean install from ISO?

Clean install from ISO?

Umm, I have been having the black screen of death before logon and I want to know if a clean install will do anything?
Also it is an ISO and I do NOT know what I will be doing..I know how to mount etc.
I have seen a forum but I am too stoopid for it
Any help would be appreciated. I also want to know that if there is a "cure" for this black screen?
Also, I was thinking that doing a clean install would stop the VD from running half way through and screw my computer...like while windows is deleting all programs.


I did Repair, system restore and sfc/scannow or something.
None of them worked :/
Please help. thanks

Try this USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
Or just burn the .iso file to a DVD

An even better method without using the command line will be the Windows USB/DVD Tool:

Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

You even get an option to turn the ISO into a disk or into a bootable USB flash drive installer.

You could have some hardware conflicts affecting the install. Have a look at this list.

You want to boot the installer to clean install Win7. To do this you'll need to burn it to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed, or write ISO to flash stick using UltraISO or Win2Flash.

I gave you the steps to getting a perfect install before: re-install windows 7

Please feel free to ask any questions if you need more help.
