Hello Gautamster, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It will only format whatever partition/drive that you selected to install Windows 7 to. Anything unselected will be fine.

Guatamster,

What were you wanting to do, and what does it have listed with details about your HDD(s) layout?

I was trying to install window 7 32 bit. But It hangs after completing installation. So i used the device manager method. But here for me at C drive, during the installation in boot layout, new option is not working and there is also already an unallocated drive exists.

Gautamster,

"New" is only available if it's a "unallocated space" that is selected. It's used to create a new partition from the "unallocated space".

If you wanted to use it on C: , then the Disk # that C is on would have to be deleted until it is "unallocated space". Afterwards, you should be able to follow the tutorial as is for that Disk #.

Guatamster,

Are you able to just install Windows 7 to dual boot with XP using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below?

I have not tried dual boot. But Let me tell you my problem again.
I tried Device manager installation, it didn't worked for me. When I install window 7 it just install fine but after completing installation it checks video performance and all. And after the final restart it does not show any desktop. After all installation, stucks on black screen, I don't know why it is not working. I changed my cd rom once from ata to sata one and graphic card is removed.

Install your graphics card, when it re-boots it should load a default driver, be sure your internet is connected.

If it still doesn't work, give us some system specs, OEM or custom, how many HDDs are currently connected, how much RAM - total and number of cards, motherboard, etc.
Maybe we can find a solution.
