Make sure you only have the hard drive you want to install Windows to installed. Any other drive, just disconnect 1 of the cables from it until after the install is complete. Boot from the Windows Install DVD or USB, at the first screen, do not select your language, hold down the shift key and press F10, which will bring up a command prompt windoe, Type diskpart and wait until the window replies -diskpart and continue with the commands in the tutorial. When done type exit and press enter, you will have to do this twice and you will be back at the select your language page, then proceed as the tutorial instructs. Diskpart will not run the clean command on the OS drive from within Windows, you are asking it to delete itself. It is also a protection to keep you from running it on the wrong drive.

Are you in the booted Win7 installation media Command Line.

Sometimes you need to proceed with Install Now to delete the partitions then X out of install to boot back into Command Line to run Diskpart.

If you have not done the hardware tests which Steve described above then I would do them first.

I'm not sure I understand where you were and what you were doing. Could you explain please. Where was your CPU getting very hot, and what were you doing when you pushed shift plus #2? Sorry, but I'm not sure what you are doing.

Yes, shift +2 is @ sign. The Label tag is optional, you don't have to put the Label tag on it if you don't want to or can't. You can use the format=ntfs if you are having troubles. Why are you not doing it booted into the installation media? And, there is no reason I can think of that your CPU should be getting that hot.

EDIT: If you are reinstalling Windows, you can boot into the Installation media, on the first window where it says select your language, hold down the shift key and press F10 and you can get a command prompt. If you do it from there you can type exit and enter twice and be back at the select your language page and just continue installing as normal.

If you are doing memtest for 8 full passes. If you are doing Prime, I would think 5 hours would be sufficient. I do mine for a minimum of 18 hours, but I do things you won't be doing, I'm sure.

By the way. Be sure to watch your CPU temps closely if you are running Prime95. Your temps will go very high very quickly. Stop the test if it gets too hot.
