Wanting a fresh reinstall
I'll get right to the point and try to be as specific as I can. I have installed Windows 7 home premium on my XPS laptop. I previously was running Vista home premium. When i start my machine, it asks me if i want to start with vista or 7.
The trouble is that when I select 7, it boots up and still has all my previous vista files on my partritioned hard drives. This is a problem because both were badly infected by viruses. I want to COMPLETELY delete ALL files and do a clean install of Windows 7 so that Windows 7 is the only OS on my computer. Hitting f12 as my computer starts and asking it to boot from the Windows 7 disc only results now in the machine booting up normally. How can I just delete everything and start anew?

Warning: This will completely wipe clean your entire Hard Drive and no files will be saved! This "Clean All" command is to zero your drive which is the deepest possible clean against infection. The following commands will format and mark active the drive, preparing it for immediate Windows 7 install.
Boot from the Windows 7 DVD and on the second screen select "Repair my Computer," then in the Recovery tools list, select Command Line and type:
SELECT DISK # (for Windows 7 disk)
create partition primary
select partition 1
Now boot back into the Windows 7 DVD and select Custom install, select the drive you just cleaned and formatted, and install Windows 7.
