Ensure installation of Windows 7 64 bit to correct partition?
Last time I clean installed Windows 7 I partitioned the hard drive and Windows installed to the 1.5 Tb partition, not the 100 Gb partition I had intended. Another time, from memory, I partitioned the drive using Windows tools, split the main drive in 2 then Windows ended up on the larger part again!
Can anyone tell me a failsafe way to ensure Windows installs to the section of the disk I want to to install to? Step by step would be great if available. I know how to format + partition the drive and install windows, just not how to ensure the OS goes on the correct partition.
Appreciate any help in advance,

Hello Matt, and welcome to Seven Forums.
I find that the easiest way is to only have the hard drive that you plan on installing Windows to connected. Afterwards, use the method in the tutorial below to delete all partitions on the hard drive until it's unallocated. Select the unallocated disk to install Windows to. When installation is finished, then you could create the second partition, and reconnect any other hard drives.
Clean Install Windows 7
Hope this helps,
