Windows 7: Reinstalling windows 7 problem

Reinstalling windows 7 problem

Hi there!

I got into a bad situation. I got two partition (see on the picture) i was installed a Windows 7 onto the C:. After a year maybe i had some troubles or idk why, but i begin to install Windows 7 again. And for some reason i was not able to install Windows 7 on C: again. So i just installed it do D:.
And now i trying to format my whole hard drive, and install win 7 on it.

But when i trying to boot from the dvd ( i tryied with 2 different copyes ) it boots in, but only a command prompt appear, and nothing hapen.

I searched for that error and found this: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

But when i try to type anything into the cmd window, its looks like this:
"x: .... /^L^R^E"

Also the I(i) button doesnt works, and if i press the C button its like i press an enter.

Also i have to use a PS2 keyboard instead of an USB one, because i got a special BIOS(because of video card detection problems) and the USB ports just doesnt works in some part of booting. I can use USB keyboard in BIOS boot, like press F11 to booting menu, but for example if you got more windows installed, and its asks you to chose wich one to boot, at those screen the USB keyboard not working again.

The picture says that my C: drive is my primary, but indeed my windows is on D:. So it doesnt let me to format any of the partitions.

Can I ask for a link and a description of where you downloaded this Windows 7 Installer.

Also is there a recovery disk that came with your PC, or a piece of software on there that will create it for you? if so those recover the OS and basic drivers that came with the computer and I recommend using that disk to reinstall the OS. I have done exactly that on other computers in the past.

Where did you get Windows 7? How exactly is the disk burned? How do you plan to activate it?

Try another keyboard as there are problems typing Diskpart commands into the Command prompt that may be remedied by that. If not boot free Partition Wizard or DBAN to wipe the HD.

Is there a newer BIOS version available? If not reset the BIOS to defaults, enable all USB options, set SATA controller to AHCI mode. Do you see an EFI Boot Disk in the boot order settings? If so remove it and set HD first to boot.

My problem solved!
Downloaded iso from Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

Than installed a third windows(without formatting, from the running op. sys.), than with the fresh windows, i booted into the installer its worked!

So idk how but the old windows was probably damaged or something else.

You didn`t do it right if you installed it from a running operating system.

Use Greg`s instructions.
