Windows 7: Can I clean reinstall Win 7 without going thru login page?

Simple fact is you have a hardware problem. More then likely the hard drive is failing. Since you haven't bother to state Why you did the Reinstall the first time but I can guess it was because of system freezes or BSODs. You need to do whatever anyone on this forum asks you to do to Test the Hardware in your system.

The reason I think it is the hard drive failing is because you said it ran fine for about an hour then Froze and now you can't boot the system to the welcome screen. To me that is a sure sign the drive has gotten corrupted and that doesn't happen unless there is something wrong with it. If it was a RAM problem it most likely would of shown up when you were doing the Re-Install.

Thank you Edwar for the input. Yes, I figured that was the problem but I wanted to be sure of any other software problems before I replace the Hard Drive. And yes the reason I did the original reinstall was because of freeze up. I originally thought it was an nvidia driver problem that updated to a Windows 8 fix. Or I thought may "Spotify" was the problem since the freeze up on the reinstall happened just after I downloaded their program. Thanks again for your help.

Have you confirmed the HD is bad using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan? This is the way to know for sure.

No but thank you for asking. Computer doesn't even acknowledge that Windows 7 is on my disk. I now have 3 partitions on my drive but it is only accessing #3. I am trying to access other partions but can't because I am unable to get past welcome splash screen. Is there a way around this thru command prompt. If so I don't know the command. I did get onto disk from a friends house the installation software BUT computer says invalid file name.

Did you download the official installer ISO and burn using MS Download tool or Imgburn at 4x speed? If not do it correctly from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Then set DVD drive first to boot in BIOS setup: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD.
Are you prompted to Press any Key to Boot Disk?
