Help installing windows 7 from scratch.
Hello guys, I just joined the forum because I need some major help. I have tried over and over again but can't seem to install windows 7 properly, it always fails.
This is the error message I get:
"The installation was not successful. Changes made during the installation process are being undone."
I think this is most probably because my computer has a virus and a lot of my files are corrupted. I tried doing a system restore but my laptop turned off in the middle of it, which I think caused even more corruption.
At this point I think the best thing to do would be to wipe out my laptop's hardrive , so that I can properly re-install windows 7 on it. What do you think? I need some suggestion. If so, how do I go about doing this?
How do I wipe out the hardrive and install windows 7 from scratch?
Any help would be nice. Thank You guys!
