Windows 7: How do I reinstall windows 7 professional 32 bit?

How do I reinstall windows 7 professional 32 bit?

I seem to have been hit by a virus of some sort and would like to re-install windows 7 professional 32-bit to hopefully wipeout the virus and start again. I’ve tried to re-install and have gotten some error messages. I have the windows 7 information on a USB and need help to get this computer working again.

I have also tried re-installing windows XP version with a CD, system attempts to start with RAID, etc. but then get error message and it does not complete the installation. Would prefer to stick with windows 7 version I have on it now.

Would appreciate all the help I can get, really desperate here. Thanks.

Can you read your key code on the COA on the bottom of the laptop ? If so you can download the ISO of your version, burn to dvd using Imgburn and reinstall.

What method did you use to put the files on the usb drive ?

If you want to try to save the existing installation, work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot.

If you want to reinstall, the steps are the same as these to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
