Im a bit of a computer noob so no jargon please, sorry if I have put this thread in the wrong part of the forum.Pretty much I'd like to know how to get rid of the 4 windows 7s and Make a fresh from my windows disk
Sorry about the repost but I realised the title was not correct within the rules and I'm not sure how to delete the previous post

Then follow these steps exactly, post back the step where it fails along with verbatim error message: Clean Install Windows 7

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1 Version 6.1 Build 7601

How interesting, the same problem I had yesterday :) Instaling Windows7 failed during installation. go into bios and change AHCI mode to IDE and see if that works for you.
