Win7 Ultimate X64

How about the clean install route, it will give you a far superior system without all the bloatware and factory installed crap
As long as you have an install key on the sticker on your machine it should work, seems you have nothing to lose

So all HP did is reinstall the worst possible install of WIn7 one can have. The factory preinstall is larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that interfere with Win7.

YouŽll have a much better installation if you make your Recovery disks, then boot the Win7 installer as suggested thrice now to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, deleting all partitions during install to get it cleanest.

If not then I would at least try to Clean Up Bloatware

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. (If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install.) Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.
