So you want to start with a total empty physical drive? Really nothing on it?

Katak,

Use your Win 7 DVD to "clean" your hard drive.

GO TO A COMMAND PROMPT
USING YOUR WIN 7 DVD/UFD




BOOT TO A COMMAND PROMPT USING A WIN 7 DVD/USB STICK
Insert your Win 7 DVD or Win 7 USB
Power down your computer.
Power up your computer.
Boot up your computer from the Win 7 DVD/USB stick.
When a screen is displayed asking for the Language to Install,
press the key combo of SHIFT + F10.
Do NOT click on Next.
Press the SHIFT + F10 key combo.

You will have a X:\Sources> command prompt.
X: is a ram drive created by Windows 7.
X: contains a mini-version of Windows 7 called a PE (pre-execution environment).

If you do not plan on installing windows at this time, you may now remove the DVD/USB stick.

If you plan on continuing with an install, then do not remove.

Execute the desired commands.
Use the EXIT command to return to the Win 7 installation procedure.
NOTE: UFD = Usb Flash Device = usb stick = pendrive = thumb drive
==================================================

That showed you how to get to a command prompt.

Here is how to prepare the hard disk once you are at the command prompt:

type these commands,following each by hitting the ENTER key:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0
DETAIL DISK (to make sure you got the hard disk)
CLEAN
EXIT
EXIT (this one gets you back into the install program.
