I'm not sure what you are trying to do.

If you have a W7 install disc and your PC is not booting from your internal HDD, you can perform a "Startup Repair" or "Repair Install".

Make sure that the external HDD is not connected and then have a look at the tutorials listed below.

Startup Repair
Repair Install

"Trusted Installer" protects Windows System files.

If you just want to delete everything, why not format the external HDD?

If you want to save various files, copy everything except the Windows folder and then format the external HDD.
