What is "imp data" text-speak is more trouble than it's worth, please use whole words.



If you need to copy out the "imp data" have a look at this tutorial at the link below.

Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console



You can use Option Three in this tutorial to do a partition specific wipe.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

It may, I have no experience with the program you used for the wipe, though it doesn't sound like a 'real' wipe if it's still showing used space.

Try booting the Win7 DVD to install to the target partition.

Choose Custom Install, use Drive Options to format the target partition first.

If this fails, use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to wipe the target partition.

It would be even better to copy out your data first to DVD or external drive so you can wipe the entire HD as the boot sector may be corrupt and need wiping. Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Note   Note

Contrary to popular belief, formatting does not remove any data at all, it just checks for sector errors and marks the space to be over-written as needed, all the data is still there including all the code from previous/failed installation attempts.


This is the last time I'll mention this, if you don't try it you're on your own from now on.
