Yep - that's the theory.
Good luck!

Yes, when you click Exit from Command Prompt, you should be able to proceed with Install Now on next screen.

Unless you have a partition scheme in mind, I would just click Next on the drive selection screen to let it create and format a large install partition for you.

Let us know how it goes. I'll be out for awhile but there is always someone here.

Hi Gregrocker, I have a hick-up already.....

I booted with Win7 as per tutorial instructions pressing shift + F10. (if I pressed F12, it sent me to enter dvd drive, but then loaded win7 as normal).

In system recovery options there was 'no command prompt option', just the option to 'repair' computer. This will remove the install tags of Win7 that installed in the wrong partition, but no option to remove the Win7 Loader XE (from my Acer Discs). I have computer on hold until I hear from you.

Is there another option of how I can get into command prompt at boot to do a 'clean' - or have I done something wrong this end.

Please remember this was a complimentary microsoft Win7 disk (not for retail) to replace my geniune Acer Win 7 upgrade discs. So could this particular disk not have all the options that a normal retail disk has? Just a thought to the mystery.

With the DVD in the drive, reboot the PC.
tap the F12 key until you get the boot option, and select the DVD drive to boot from.
You should see a warning (probably at the bottom of the screen)
'Press a key to boot from DVD...' - press a Key (the spacebar is as good an any)
The DVD should start to boot.

That's the System Recovery options from a Vista Recovery Partition, as I read it?

When are you seeing this?

This is from booting the Win 7 disc that MS just sent me. It is reading from the disk.

I have just done F12 again and then quickly did shift + F10 which took me to the same screen above.

The Shift+F10 is the one you want - pick the DVD
