Well, I use Partition Wizard that I burn on CD from Linux... It allows you to examine old partition structure and in some cases you can roll back to old structure, there're other tools you can burn on CD under Linux too, System Recovery tool, Rescatux, etc

I used that method. It gives me errors, or it doesn't do anything.
Errors like hal.dll is missing.

Did you download the official ISO fully, then burn to DVD using the MS download tool?

Are you booting the DVD to do the install?

Exactly when do you get the errors? Clean Install Windows 7

Try wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command accessing Command Line this way: DISKPART At PC Startup
