My struggle with Windows 7 SD (Self destruct continues, Looks like I am headed for another fresh intstall. My disk related ventures are posted here
. Not really a h appy ending.
As to the original post, I have two questions:
1) Are both Options 1 and 2 viable
2) As to a fresh install, I have looked at the tutorials, but I always pause when doing this, as its not 'obvious' where the option to 'install clean with formatting" is. I see the Upgrade vs Custom(Advanced) screen , and then the Drive OPtions link. But even there , where I see the Format icon and select it, it just takes me to the same/next screen (as if I selected nothing). No feedback that it has been 'selected. So I need to go through the whole process, and then look at the finished result to confrim that yup, looks like a clean C drive install. Am I correct?
