Warning! It is a large download, about 3 gigs, don't get capped by your ISP.

Hey man, sorry for the double post on my iPhone it was glitching up and not editing.
So with the download file, I only have 1.5 gbs left because before my computer crashed I downloaded borderlands (12gb) and Skyrim (compressed to 4gb). I only have 20gbs, and I downloaded that 3gb Windows 7 installation file and so I am nearly capped.

System repair disks didn't work. Nor did windows installation disks, as the windows disks wouldn't install on a hard drive of the GPT format.


1. I used a friends computer to make a disk of the MiniTool partition manager.

2. Using that partition manager, we deleted the entire content of my hard drive. We removed all partitions and everything, so it was just unallocated space.

3. Removed the partition manager disk, and inserted windows 7 home premium install disk. Using the product key on the bottom of my computer, we installed a fresh copy of Windows 7.

Thanks for all of the help guys.

Good to hear you fixed the problem!

Now that you have a clean installation, consider making a image of your system. An image will enable you to restore the computer's system, installed programs and data.
