Windows 7: Reinstalling Windows Takes Forever. Reason because I have 2TB?

Reinstalling Windows Takes Forever. Reason because I have 2TB?

So I'm reinstalling Windows 7. During installation it rebooted once so far. The progress bar is currently at the final stage and has just stopped moving for a very long time.

Is there something wrong with the installation or is it because the hard drive currently has almost 2TB of space used up, most being in a very close part of the computer, and only 53GB of space left?

EDIT: Nevermind, I just had to wait a long time. I am currently in my desktop. One question though, if I have everything from the previous installation backed up already, is it safe to delete, "windows.old" folder?

If everything is backed up then yes, it's safe.

You should look into freeing up some space on the drive to add to the boot partition. 53GB can be pretty tight.
