Tried the disc right after power up. It wants nothing to do with disc. Just spins while "please wait " is on screen an then after 30 secs stops spinning (while please wait continues for another 5 min).

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals, Boot into BIOS setup to see if there is an EFI Boot Disk in BIOS Boot order. If so remove it, set DVD drive first to boot. If EFI BIOS also set to Legacy BIOS.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick, at first screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SEL DIS 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT

Next click Install Now to Clean Install Windows 7 to partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

Thanks to all who responded. I actually booted from disc prior to gregrocker's post. I put on primary partition (which I believe is why it said only 350G was available on a 750G HD). Everything seems to be working fine. This whole thing started over on the BSOD forum, then moved to security forum and then ended up on this Installation and Setup Forum. After about 40 hours of troubleshooting, I am happy to report that things look ok. I backed up files prior to re-install etc.

Thanks again for this forum as I do not consider myself an IT guru but I am resourceful and don't mind troubleshooting from expert advice. Have a great day!
