A very serious error has popped up on this HP p7-1380t.
I tried to back it up with Clonezilla-live and it found that I had things
initialized as GPT and MBR. I tried to fix this with MiniToolPartition,
but can't find a way to do it with that program. Things I need are greyed
out. So I'm left with a good install that I can't back up.
I did change the BIOS to accept Legacy and not UEFI. I think this
has something to do with the errors.

Did you install Win7 in Legacy Mode, i.e. did not choose UEFI DVD or Flash stick to do the install?

Did you delete all partitions during this install, create new for install?

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Yes, I installed Windows in Legacy mode to the best of my knowledge.
I installed from a CD and changed the BIOS to Legacy. But as I said
in a previous message I found it in UEFI mode and had to change it a
2nd time. I did delete all the partitions and created 1 primary for the
whole disk.

Minitool will let me change all the Mbr to GPT but not the other way around.
Should I go ahead and do this and set the BIOS back to UEFI??
If that doesn't work, I can set the BIOS to UEFI, delete the partitions
and start all over.
Thank you for your patience.

You can't change them now once it's installed. You'll have to reinstall.

If this is only an issue with the imaging program you're using, I would instead use Macrium - Image your System or Win7 built-in drive imaging: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Where is the screenshot I requested?

Well I guess you didn't delete all partitions during install, did you?

You obviously have a Legacy MBR install without UEFI or it would not be running that mess.

I would back up the files and do it over, this time following the steps to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

This time to be sure the HD is cleanest I would wipe it before reinstall using Diskpart Clean Command, accessing the installer's Command Line by pressing Shift + F10 at first screen when booted.

Yes I did delete all partitions before install.
Yes I set it to Legacy. How can you gave Legacy and UEFI?
I don't understand. To my way of thinking it's either Legacy or UEFI.
Not both.

I don't understand the Mess statement. I have been running for years
with the disk partitioned in this manner. I like to keep my data separate
from Windows.

I will do a reinstall as you instructed.
Thank you

I am totally unfamiliar with "Diskpart".
It is not working for me.
Using another program I have deleted GoAsm, Masm32 and pictures.
Resized the C: drive to the full hd capacity.
Then in Dispart I resized the C: partition. That created Volume 7.
I then formatted Volume 7
When I tried to load the new windows it hung and would not let me
install in this new partition. I guess because the old operating was
still in C:

What is the problem with deleting all partitions during install using the Drive Options shown in Clean Install Windows 7 Steps 7 and 8, or running Diskpart Clean Command to wipe the HD clean?

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Since I have a HP p7-1380t with BIOS set to UEFI, which tutorial do I use?
From reading "How to do a Clean Installation with Windows 7" under "Here's How",
I am confused by what's in #1 warning. Should I use "How to install Windows 7
using "Unified Extensible Firmware Interface" (IUEFI) OR "How to do a Clean Installation
with Windows 7"?
