Thank you for the link Night Hawk. Here is a screen shot, and if you notice the green border, that signifies that Windows XP, Vista, and 7 are all installed in an extended partition, within logical partitions or volumes.

You said: "Windows won't install onto an extended volume." and yet there they are.

Cheers!

That should say "Windows won't boot independently from an extended volume" though Windows can be installed to one.

Well done everyone, sorry I could not respond to the 98 SE CD request I had some medical issues. Basically for future references there is a download of Windows 98 SE (Second Edition) available at Windows 98 USB Mass Storage Device Drivers

What this does is when loaded on your USB flash drive it allows you to boot into Win 98 SE and use the OS commands like format, fdisk, etc. These would come in handy for times a HDD is not accessible and need to be rejuvenated. What a great team effort, I will be repping all that my current allowances will let me.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Clean Install Windows 7
Apparently you missed Post #13 where the two guides were pointed to for a clean install and performing a clean install with upgrade media.

The advice the OP needed and what worked out wasn't any custom install onto an extended volume but a clean install on a single primary. Why confuse someone new at partitioning with ???

Anyways this thread should be marked "solved" since the OP's laptop now has a working install of 7 on it.
