    boot from drives and format


    hi
    i want to boot windows7 from my harddisk which i am using .
    i mean to say that not from external hard disk drive.

    i will try to explain again, actually i have a pc on which i am working at this time (internal or primary harddisk drive of it ). i want to reboot my system and when its bootsup then it should be stating setup of win7 from one of my harddisk drive. for example from d: drive (D:/win7)

    and also want to fromat my c drive.

    When installing Windows 7, during the setup, just choose where you want it installed.

    I think i misinterpreted your post though...

    Copy Windows 7 setup files to the external disk drive.

    Run Windows 7 setup from the external drive.

    Be VERY careful to select the INTERNAL drive as the install location.

    When you select the INTERNAL drive as the install location, click the DRIVE OPTIONS.

    You can format the C drive at that time.

    mehmood, I am confused about your "Windows7 backup" I believe that I saw you over at MaxPC when you installed the beta. Are you trying to save your data - and do an upgrade?

    Or - do you have the install ISO (Windows7 backup) on the D drive and want to install to C or install to D?

    I'm sorry. I do not speak Urdu or this would be a bit easier.

    You can install 7 to either drive. I think you are asking what to do with the ISO.

    no dear.

    i mean to say that i want to install windows7 in c drive .

    windows7 setup is on d drive. i want to install it from this one.

    i have a quetion now. tell me one thing ?

    when we try to install windowsXP ,

    we have two options to installing it.
    1 ) When we log on
    2) When Computer starts.

    in winows7, it follows 2 way or not?
    i want to run from 2nd option.
    but not from DVD drive (want to from my D drive when my PC starts)
