You would need to be able to boot into the DVD to perform another installation to do a clean install.

Basically, when you get to the options of "Custom or Upgrade" You choose Custom, then click on the partitions and delete them, then click continue (it will create its own as needed).

We need to be able to boot from the Windows 7 Install DVD.

bro...you need to listen if you want help. you need to try the repair option in the boot options first. put the disc in, restart and press f8 til it comes up. then choose repair.

Hi I told him to do this earlier on, but I think he is only getting into the F8 screen now.

Alright since my way is being out numbered here, I'm moving on to another thread.

Good luck Johny with getting your computer to work again.

If like me, you may be having problems with Express Gate, you should disable that in the BIOS and then try the repair option. But that doesn't always work. It may be best to try another go at installing afresh.

I didn't burn the disc myself either, my uncle did and he works with compurers and he's burned it for himself aswell already and it went smooth!!!
This is what happens when he loads the dvd into the machine, and that is why we are trying to get him into the bios page.
