You will have to run the install from a flash dive Install Windows 7 FAST without a DVD or USB device

If you have any sort of secondary storage (flash drive, USB hard disk) you can use the following tutorial

This will allow you to format your machine (after the transfer) and have the cleanest install. Then you can just transfer back.

Have a read and see if that will help
