Computer issue day...

today has been a bad day for me and my computer, today I decided to give me computer a good clean, as the processor fan was making annoying sounds... never cleaned this fan out.. and it's few years old.. anyway got fan out.. it's like held in place by clips.. when putting it back in place... clips broke.. so my CPU was super hot and wouldn't let me use the computer.. I decided to lay my computer flat and put the fan in place.. so I can fix an issue I am having during this... my OS couldn't be found.. I tried everything, so now I am trying to reinstall wins 7... but nothing but problems... currently trying this


DiskPart <ENTER>
list disk <ENTER>
select disk 0 <ENTER>
clean all <ENTER> (Will Take a While)
create partition primary align=1024 <ENTER>
format fs=ntfs <ENTER> (Will Take a While)
assign <ENTER>
active <ENTER>
exit <ENTER>
exit <ENTER>
After it completes, exit the INSTALL COMPLETELY and reboot.
Once you are back in, go about installing Windows just DO NOT ALLOW Windows to create a new partition, use the only one there.

Windows will now install



but not feeling hopeful.

You have to fix your CPU fan first - else you may grill the CPU.

In the commands, don't use 'Clean All' just Clean without the All.
The Format command is 'format fs=ntfs quick'
If this is a HDD and NOT a SSD, you do not need the Align=1024 in the Create Partition. This is only for SSDs.

Use the program I linked to define a primary active partition. Then install into that partition.
