Thank you! :)

*p.s. and seriously, i also dont have the time to fix all the win 7 problems just to get 2 new ones once one is sort of sorted out. I wanted to try out the 7. ... it looks nice and all, but i really regret installing it.

Until then once you have Vista back on or before that even why not shrink the intended Vista primary down a 100gb which can also be used as a backup partition later in order to try a dual boot the second time around. I think once you have a little coaching on this you won't find the RC as troublesome.

Just an observation having removed both XP and Vista here to run the new XP mode and Vista on the the new Virtual PC beta as well.

Sounds like to me that the drive just will not read the disk so far or the disk is partly damaged (bad from factory?)

If the drive is found bed that would explain a bad install of 7 being seen as well. Yet you may have seen a bad burn of the iso itself to disk used.

Some of that 35GB will be in formatting overhead - when a disk is formatted, there's a certain amount of spaced need by the OS to keep track of things. How much is reserved for this overhead is driven, in large part, by the formatting options chosen.

Win7, during the install process, allocates a small amount (about 100MB) to a system/boot partition that you can't see from within the O/S (except from within the disk management tool).

Where the rest of your 35GB went .... I don't know.

The 35GB were missing before win 7 was installed... and the duke nuke thing doesnt work either, nothing works

Ye i did read the dban forums... it says;


If DBAN instantly kicks out to this error message, then it doesn't have a driver for your laptop computer. Provide manufacturer and model information for this computer.

The latest public DBAN release does not have an easy way to get the log file if the computer does not have a legacy floppy drive.


Edit:

Well at least the dban gave me an idea, i just got WipeDrive, am running it, and whatdya know it seems to work!
Il get back with feedback if it solves it or no!

A 500gb drive is calculated with decimal units of measurement while Windows uses the binary units of measurement instead. A 500gb drive should see 465gb available once partitioned and formatted. In fact you can use a calculation tool seen on the page here for finding out just how much space will be available for any size drive at The Tomorrow Times: The Hard Drive Capacity Calculator

"Determining drive capacity can be confusing at times because of the different measurement standards that are often used. When dealing with Windows and Mac based systems, you will commonly see both decimal measurements and binary measurements of a drive's capacity. In either case, a drive's capacity is measured by using the total number of bytes available on the drive. As long as the drive displays the correct number of bytes (approximate), you are getting the drive's full capacity.
Decimal vs. Binary:
For simplicity and consistency, hard drive manufacturers define a megabyte as 1,000,000 bytes and a gigabyte as 1,000,000,000 bytes. This is a decimal (base 10) measurement and is the industry standard. However, certain system BIOSs, FDISK and Windows define a megabyte as 1,048,576 bytes and a gigabyte as 1,073,741,824 bytes. Mac systems also use these values. These are binary (base 2) measurements.
To Determine Decimal Capacity:
A decimal capacity is determined by dividing the total number of bytes, by the number of bytes per gigabyte (1,000,000,000 using base 10).
To Determine Binary Capacity:
A binary capacity is determined by dividing the total number of bytes, by the number of bytes per gigabyte (1,073,741,824 using base 2).
This is why different utilities will report different capacities for the same drive. The number of bytes is the same, but a different number of bytes is used to make a megabyte and a gigabyte. This is similar to the difference between 0 degrees Celsius and 32 degrees Fahrenheit. It is the same temperature, but will be reported differently depending on the scale you are using."
My drive displays a smaller than expected capacity than the indicated size on the drive label
