You'll need to do a Clean Install Windows 7 deleting all partitions using the Drive Options pictured in Steps 7 and 8 to create new Partition(s) as desired.

The 64 bit OS is provided along with everything that must be backed up from the old install, how to do a perfect new install, set it up and maintain it perfectly in these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 so study it carefully and ask back any questions.

Yes, you want everything to be lost because you will be reinstalling a driver-complete OS that provides all of its drivers in the installation media, and then when you enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until there are no more offered.

You only need your network driver in the backup in case it isn't provided by installer so that you can install it to get online and start Updates.

This is all explained in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 if you will only read it to learn how to do a perfect install, same for retail.

Get the network drivers before you even start the new install. Put them on a flash drive or cd etc.

Better to have them and not need them etc..............

Follow Gregs instructions and you should be fine.
