Hello Jemmaimakhan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you only format and install on the C: partition, then the other partitions will be fine.

Clean Install Windows 7

Hope this helps,

Backup all your files and settings first using an external HDD or large USB flash and Windows Easy Transfer (migwiz.exe).

TIP for XP and other upgraders: Use the MIGWIZ.EXEW file found on your Windows 7 DVD not the one in XP! It's found in the Support\migwiz folder on your install DVD and it is faster and much more detailed than XP's migwiz!

I will post a tutorial later on using migwiz.exe (AKA: Easy Transfer) tonight if I get the time!

No need to make a tutorial on this, there is already a good one here on sevenforums:

Just remember to run the Windows 7 version from install DVD on your old Vista or XP machine.
