Uninstall

I just baught a completely new and a good one laptop... installed win 7 and it sucks big time, never seen anything crash so much in my entire life. My patience has ended and im going back to vista at least till the REAL win 7 comes out <_<
But nooo it wont even let me reinstall to vista <_<
Keeps telling me aint enough space in temporary files. So i went to control panel and put the internet temp files up to 1024 it still tells me not enough space <_< and its giving me some sort of error if i try to boot from cd...
Any ideas? I wana get rid of it before it screws my comp up!

Edit: The error it gives wheni boot from cd is:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the problem.

Tells me to inset win instal cd and go to repair your computer.

Info: File is possibly corrupt. Its header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

file: windows\system32\boot\winload.exe

ok ok, easy way out, chuck the Vista disc in the CD tray, restart the computer, boot from disc, format the entire drive, install Vista onto the Drive.

Voila.

You just bought a new laptop and ... installed what the RC over Vista as an upgrade? It's not 7 seeing the problems but it's simply not ready at this point to upgrade over any preinstalled version of Windows.

Your laptop should have the full restore option that wipe the primary and bring everything back to factory. The manual if the option to create a set of recovery disks is provided will explain how to go about that where you simply reformat the active primary while leaving the hiddden recovery partition untouched for a complete Vista reinstall.

With the 500gb drive as seen in your system info points to is in the laptop the best way to have seen 7 go on would have been shrinking the factory primary down and creating a second smaller primary for 7. Then you would have seen better results with a dual boot setup.

have you tried setting the bios to boot from DVD/CD tray before HDD?, there's no way, i dont think that an OS can stop a CD/DVD booting.

Perhaps if you list the problems like not seeing board and other drivers installed that might help in getting 7 screaming right past Vista there. I've most versions right through Vista and find 7 a large improvement like most here have already found out for themselves.

2. rebooted
3. it asks me to press any key to boot from cd/dvd
4. pressed any key
5. message: windows is loading
6.windows failed to start and the error message i described in first post.

win 7 problems: crashes on most anything ive installed and tried to run xept drivers.
most stuff i use doesnt even work on it.
install files get "corrupt" message at random times, it does install after several tries with the same files <_<
Look i dont give a damn abt win 7 i just need a non crashing OS that is all.

BUM-BOW. That dont sound healthy, maybe this can float ya boat :

Darik's Boot And Nuke | Hard Drive Disk Wipe

That will wipe you entire HDD clean, and then you should have a error free install.

When booting from the Vista dvd you simply go into the drive tools section found there and select the format option to wipe any partition. That will see the RC removed as well.
