And that`s what we all told you, but you didn`t want to listen. A clean install is done from a dvd or flash drive. I told you this way back. OMG !!!

Do you have two PC's or two HDD, we can work with?

And an installation with wiping drive C can only be done from USB or DVD/BD whatever. That's what I wanted to know, though it wasn't very clear for two pages and could have got this saving all the posts. Thanks.. you can close the thread.
As you do not have the gear to set up a bootable partition, you need to use a DVD/USB.
