You don't want to create any partitions you need to delete all of them and clear the MBR let windows create partitions. The io error sounds like a faulty disk boot disk makers web site they should have test software for the disk

As your laptop is quite old, you don't need any driver to install Win 7.
I would say you have a hardware disk failure.
What are the surface test results?

Did you notice that you have 4 KB in bad sectors?
Do you have another drive to replace and make a test?

I cannot run compmgmt.msc to see the error!

I am using Mini Tool (via Hiren Boot CD with Windows XP Mini) and I cannot see my local disk C: from My Computer on Windows XP Mini.

When I re-launch MiniTool Application, I see the following message:

MiniTool Partition Wizard cannot find any disk in your computer.

Please make sure that you have administrator privileges.

Now, I reboot my laptop, via Hiren Boot CD, selecting Windows XP Mini. I still cannot see my local disk C: from My Computer on Windows XP Mini.

Now, I have to re-stall MiniTool Application on RAM DRIVE (I am booting from Windows XP Mini).

Now, I CAN SEE Basic MBR (unallocated) via MiniTool Application. (MBR IS VISIBLE ONLY VIA MiniTool Application), NOT via Windows XP Mini.
