Yes, but somethings wrong with the site, it won`t open.

Try this site, for now.

Click on the iso you want, and the download will start, post back when it`s done.

No, I didn't mean it like that. I was laughing at AddRam cause he was teasing me whenever I first started this thread saying I was going to be here all night. I promise you I won't forget what you guys have done for me, and maybe I can even help someone else after this. The more you know!

This is not hillarious.

Well, that's the confusing part, because I'm not sure how many Windows 7 downloads I had on this pc total. In other words, I originally only reformatted drive C:, then I got the black screen of death. In other words, I'm not exactly sure which drive my Windows 7 was originally on so it's hard to know if I ever actually deleted it with the first reinstall. It could have been left on the reserve drive or it could have been left on drive D: So, I know I had at least two downloads on this pc, because whenever I would reboot I would have to choose between two different operating systems, whether to run one or the other. In other words, whenever I first tried to reinstall Windows via the tutorial (link u just shared) I somehow skipped the reformat option and so for all I know that usb download never was successful and I was choosing between the old windows and old windows #2 rather than old windows #2 and old windows #3. Good luck following all of that.

I'm sure I'll be fussed at sooner or later for not running out and buying blank DVD's. I suspect that is my next order of business if this doesn't work out.

Why are you talking about downloads ?

You are to download the windows 7 iso file of the version you want to install on the problem pc.

You are to download the iso on a working pc. Stop talking about things that do not matter.

Did you start to download the iso file ? Yes or NO ?

Are you going to use the flash drive ? Yes or No ?

Are you going to use a dvd ? Yes or No ?

Uploading iso to flash drive ? What are you talking about.

The iso file gets burned to the flash stick, not uploaded.

This is a much better tool to put the iso on the flash drive.

Upgrade Disk - Well, perhaps it might work now that I have reformatted all three partitions.

I'll be sure and post an update before I call it a night. Yes, of course I want your help. I'm really sorry this is taking so long. I'm hoping now that I have all three partitions formatted things will begin to fall into place and we can all get on with our lives. Thanks again.

But right now I need to know what you have already done, what instructions you followed, what steps were executed. If you want my help, I'm willing to pick this up tomorrow. But we've spent 4 hours and the best thng I can say that we accomplished is that we both had dinner.

I'm out for tonight. I'll read your reply tomorrow.

Goodnight arayfo1
