Oh, I don't know. I'm really not good with computers. It does still seem to have everything on it still from before I tried to reinstall windows....

If you actually have a real Windows 7 installation DVD to do the install with.

I'm concerned to advise another clean install if you don't have the correct Windows 7 installation DVD, is there anything on the PC that you need to backup to external media, anything you can't afford to/don't want to lose?

No. I just want everything gone. I put all my important things on an external HD.

Do you have another PC to use while you reinstall so you can follow along in this tutorial?

I'm aware you aren't too computer savvy and that's not an issue I just don't want to mess you up.

Then using the tutorial at Step #6 select Custom install and at Step #8 delete all the partitions and let the installer create the appropriate partition(s) during the install and be sure to post back here to let me know how it sorts out for you.

The above is dependent on you having the correct type Windows 7 installation DVD.

No I don't just take your time and study the tutorial, there is no reason to be in a hurry to do this, this time and create issues like this last one, just take your time and study.

You can do it, it's not that hard, you already did one Windows 7 installation, just start the install and follow along in the tutorial while the install progresses.
