Ok mate look it's a pain but if you haven't got a lot of data to save cos it doesn't sound like it - a reinstall is probably what you need to do.
Now have you any way of getting that drive ready - formatted etc for an install of 7? Because personally I would wipe the thing and start with a completely empty drive - I don't know about anyone else but maybe the Vista remnants are the problem.
The alternative is of course to buy another drive and flip it into the machine - it isn't hard. The option of wiping the drive you will need a second machine to do that and there are two methods of doing that.
Let us know what option is best for you because even with the new drive it is an idea to get it ready too.
Just so you know what you are up for take a look at this Youtube vid as the HDD is not as accessible as most HDD's are in other brands.
