Windows 7: Installing Win7-64 Bit Ent on Laptop with Same

Installing Win7-64 Bit Ent on Laptop with Same

I've got a Dell Laptop Lattittude E5500 that I installed Win7-64Bit Enterprise on a couple of years ago. Now, it's gotten so fragmented that I can't defrag it any better than 7%, so I wanted to format it, or delete the C:\ Partition, and reinstall from the same install DVD that I used the first time. Unfortunately, I can't get the install to work either by installing from Windows, or from DOS/Cmnd Prompt. When I attempt to install from Windows it gets to the point where it's copying files and gets as far as maybe 60-65%, then stalls forever, and ever. When I try to install from Cmnd Prompt, where it asks if I want to start from DVD. I've tried choosing to let it download updates, or NOT download updates, but it gave me some Error Msg, I didn't write down which one.

As I said, I just wanted to delete the partition, and start from scratch. How do I get there?

Hep Me,

You don`t install windows from within windows, you boot from the dvd, there`s no command prompt needed either.

Clean Install Windows 7

OK! I booted from the DVD, and it got about 65% through, and like I said before, it stalled for at least 15 mins. It LOOKED as though it was reading properly, but never progressed. No error msg, just stalled.

Any ideas?

Then entire Windows 7 install takes about 45 minutes and there are times where it might read files for 5 or 10 minutes before a new screen comes on. Give it a start and just let it go for a while. You need to sit near it because it asks you to hit enter once in a while.

45 minutes ?? Noooo way, 15 minutes from start to desktop with a dvd, sometimes faster using a flash drive, but never have I seen it take 45 minutes to install Windows 7.

Sounds like you need a new installer.

It could be your copy of Windows 7 Enterprise. The installation media.
Where and how did you get your copy of Enterprise?

If you did yours install in 15 minutes, everything was not installed.

It depends on what one calls a complete install.

My personal definition is installing Windows 7 with all it's updates.
In my opinion Windows 7 is not complete until all it's need updates are installed.
As we know updates can take a very long time.
