Windows 7: Can't install Windows 7 Ultimate x64

30 Dec 2011   #71

Clean All is unnecessary overkill, only needed to securely overwrite data so it cannot be easily recovered. The Clean command which is instantaneous will provide the only real benefit for install which wiping with Diskpart provides: cleaning the boot sector of any code which can interfere.

May I ask why you didn't inquire further how to unplug one of the your HD's, but just dropped the discussion of it as though the step wasn't important even though given a dozen times by 3-4 of us?

Likewise the suggestion to disable the HD in BIOS was dropped without further inquiry or exploration.

I thought you were intested in Expanding. Of all the tasks you'll endeavor in life there are none more important to be thorough than this.

I was worried about getting in the case invade I broke something and didn't know if the menu saying disable from BIOS disabled the drive.

And I don't think I can cancel Clean All now

I can't go to the BIOS now, it will interfere with the clean, here is a post from earlier:

If I go to Hard Drive BBS Priorities in BIOS's boot tab.

If I chose Boot Option 1 or 2 which are the HD's, it has a Disable option. Will that disable te Hd?

Let's hope you are running Clean All on the correct drive if you have 2 connected.

I've long ago lost track of which drive you are attempting to clean--or pretty much what you are trying to accomplish, for that matter.

BBS only tells BIOS which HD to boot in the boot order or using one-time BIOS Boot menu key.

There should be a setting to disable the HD where it registers in the BIOS, likely on the Advanced tab. This should be detailed in your mobo Manual which has also been linked repeatedly for you.

From your mobo Manual p 23, BIOS Advanced options Tab SATA config:

Can't install Windows 7 Ultimate x64-bios.pngclick to enlarge

One of the options is Disabled.

Is there some reason you are unable to study your Manual?

My computer is cleaning the drive and my iPhone can't view PDFs.
