Hi

I would recommend running Dell diagnostic and verifying hardware components first. To run diagnostics, press F12 during power on and select "Diagnostics" from the boot menu. A short test will be executed first and if it didn't find any errors, you will be asked for permission to run extended test. Let us know the result of testing ( and error codes - if any ) with next reply.

If hardware passes test, then boot the Windows 7 installation disk to confirm that the 100mb System Reserved (preferred if you have it) or C partition is Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If this fails you can either proceed with the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start or skip to the step to rescue your files, from the booted Windows 7 installer then delete all partitions using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create and format new and reinstall.

Here is also the best method to Dual Boot - Windows 7 and Linux - Windows 7 Forums

Hi

i have seen corrupted partitions prevent Windows and installation DVD from booting. May be the Linux installation attempt screwed your current partitions. If you don't have any data to save, i would recommend deleting all partitions and install Windows from scratch. To do that, please download "Partition Wizard" boo disc image from the below link.

http://www.partitionwizard.com/download/pwhe7.iso

Burn the image to a blank cd and boot from it.

Burn a CD or DVD from an ISO file

Delete all partitions listed and make the disk "Unallocated". Press the "Apply" button to save changes and reboot the machine. Now retry booting from install VD.

Those steps have overcome 90% of install failures we've seen here in thousands of cases since Windows 7 beta.

Reply back the results of each step so we can see if others are indicated.

Did you wipe the drive as it provides in tutorial and was just suggested again? If not then there has been no real effort. Everything is covered in tutorial.
