Where did you get your installation disk? Is it retail, OEM, from a download, or what?

Is there anything on your hard drive that you care about---personal data, email, bookmarks, videos, mp3s, etc?

Are you now able to boot into Windows and get to your normal desktop?

Try these steps, using the Diskpart command.

This will wipe out EVERYTHING on your hard drive and give you one single partition covering the entire drive.

If that is not what you want, don't do it.

Disconnect all other drives before you start.

It may not work, but it can't hurt if there is nothing on the drive you want.

Boot from your install disk and then:

1. Once Windows 7 Setup is loaded, press Shift + F10 keys at the first setup screen (which allows selection of language, keyboard and locale). A Command Prompt window will be opened.

2. Run Diskpart, the built-in disk partitioning tool of Windows 7, with the following command:

diskpart

3. Type in the following commands one by one, followed by the Enter key to create a partition (text in brackets are comments only):

list disk (to show the ID number of the hard disk to partition, normally Disk 0)

select disk 0 (change 0 to another number if applicable)

clean

create partition primary

select partition 1

active

format fs=ntfs quick

exit

4. Type exit at command prompt to close Command Prompt window.

You will be returned to the Windows installation disk interface and continue as normal. When you get to the screen that asks where you want to install Windows, direct it to the partition you just made in Diskpart.
