You did the "clean" command on disk 0. So actually deleting all partitions.

Win7 boots from a partition on disk that is marked "active". There is the boot manager and bootmenu located. You never see it when you have only one operating system, but it's still there. In bootmenu is a list of operating systems to choose from and on what partitions they are installed. Win7 install doesn't change what partition is active, but makes it dual boot instead (in case you had already a boot menu with vista for example).

Clean Install Windows 7 gives you all info. Using 6. Click on the Custom (advanced) option.. you could delete partitions as well.

WIN7 cannot be installed on FAT32 partition. But also active partition must be NTFS (for normal win7 bootmenu). So you had to make FREEDOS partition INACTIVE so win7 could decide himself where to place bootmgr and bootmenu.

Since you don't need FREEDOS you could have deleted the partition as well. Then it's gone and not active as well. The "clean" command did clean the disk totally (only first 1MB of disk, but there is the partition table).

Besides cleaning the HD as referenced you could have also simply deleted all partitions shown using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7.

This is always the best way to install or reinstall Win7.

Now I'd also look over the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which compile the tools and methods which work best in Win7 based on tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here.

So , as I said , first wipe and format to NTFS all the hard drive with all thing it has on it with the Partition wizard. Then remove the disc with PW , put the disc with the Windows 7 and boot it. Create a partition - it will be in Mb - so write a number of 200 000 Mb - it will be about 200 Gb , and install the OS on it. After the installation through the disc management partition the unallocated left space of the HD.
