Windows 7: Windows Cannot be Installed to Disk 0 Partition 1

There is no reason to install Professional since Home Premium came with the PC. The Product Key is on the COA sticker affixed to PC and is good for the life of the PC to reinstall as often as you want.

Why are we even discussing throwing away a perfectly good Home Premium license worth $100??

Set the bios to default settings.

Did you delete all the partitions down to unallocated space when you attempted the install ?

Clean Install Windows 7

You`ll need to make the Home Premium dvd on a working pc with a dvd burner, all you need is 1 blank dvd, last time I bought them at Walgreen`s, a 5 pack was $2.99.

There is no point in installing Professional if you don`t have a key for it

Since apparently you cant find it yourself and there's no one else to help you then you'll need to wait til I get home so I can pull out the link for the correct 64 bit Home Premium download for you to download and burn to disk with the tool also provided on Steps 1 and 2 of tutorial which applies here Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Are you able to read the tutorial to ask questions back?

Yes, you need to use an iso burning program.

Everything you need is in Greg`s tutorial.

Greg, yes i can i just dont have a computer to use atm i only have my broken one and thats the only reason i wanted to use the disk i have because i cant make a CD but it seems thats my only option? I can open the link and see the instructions and find the iso but ill have to take down this info and find a place to make the disk (probably the library). After i get this other disk wich is the same CD just with a differnt OS version wont i still get the same error message when trying to install it?

It`s a dvd, not a cd.

And yes you will still get the same message.

Then use the time until you can borrow a PC to study and ask questions so you're ready to get a perfect install.

I'd also have the network driver in my backup from the HP support Downloads Webpage for your model, so you can install it to get online if the driver isn't provided during install. Plug in by Ethernet cable to increase chances.

The rest of the drivers will come in via Windows Updates.
