    Easy.

    Navigate to your install files on D.

    Run Setup.exe

    The setup routine will ask you -
    Upgrade - keeps all your files on C (creates windows.old folder)
    or
    Advanced - wipes out all your files on C (a "clean" install)

    The installer will take you to a screen, eventually, where you will choose the C drive as the install location.

    Maifs, please read this slowly and carefully:

    You can not do it like you want to. You have two options now: burn this Windows 7 install folder to a bootable DVD, or install it from hard drive where you now have these installation files and folders.

    To do this, first double click the "SETUP" icon in installation folder. (image 1). The Windows 7 installation application opens. Click "INSTALL NOW" (image 2) and follow the instructions Windows Installation gives to you.

    EDIT: Didn't notice Sup3rsprt and Antman already told you how to do this. This is the only way to install Windows from hard drive.

    Hi maifs, without a USB drive, external hard drive and DVD ROM, it looks kinda impossible to do a clean install. However, as suggested by other members here, if you have all the contents of the Win7 DVD, you can double click the setup file and run the installation.

    Hope this helps,
    Dinesh. :)

    Your pic indicates a DVD R/W drive as ( G: ).

    You could also boot a W7 "Installation DVD" from there, and install W7.

    My DVD ROm doesnt give respond so.........

    i know, thanks i thought that perhaps there is something invented now through win7.
    now i made a usb bootable of win7.
    but i am facing a problem right now.
    i have made this one from the web: www.maketecheasier.com
    but when i restarted my system go into the bios.
    and from bios, go into Advanced CMOS Setup.
    and then select First boot device as USB.

    now here are some more similar things to USB.
    for example:
    IDE-0,CD/DVD-0,Intel UNDI,
    USB FDD,
    USB CDROM,
    USB HDD,
    USB RMD-FDD,
    USB RMD-HDD.


    which one should i have to choose.?
    i selected USB-FDD but there is an error when i am trying to restart : "a Disk Read-Error Occured, Press Ctrl+Alt+Del"


    kindly tell me how to ?
    and what sequence of boot devices should be?

    I seriously do not see the problem here.

    Run Setup.exe from where it is. Period.

    TGSoldier.
    - he has the setup files on D: (HDD)
    - wants clean install on C:

    Am I missing something?
