When you get to this screen ( image below )

Press Shift and F10 . You will get a command prompt window . It should open up to X:\Sources . In there input these commands and press enter after each line .
Back on the image above press Install Now . Check the I accept the license terms box and click on Next. Click on the Custom (advanced) option. Then choose

Hold on. Perhaps we should at least try to fix Win7 before reinstalling it?

First reboot and tap the Dell F12 key to run Hardware diagnostics. It will test your hardware so you'll know if it is the problem. Dell Diagnostics Utility - How to Run the

If not, reboot into the Win7 DVD or (if you have it) System Repair Disk. The WIn7 DVD for your licensed version can be found in Step 6 of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start, along with the tool to burn it to DVD or write it to bootable flash stick.

Reboot and again tap the F12 key to select DVD or flash stick to boot, boot into System Recovery Options to
run Startup Repair repeatedly. Report back what it finds.

If Win7 cannot be found of it won't discover the HD, reboot into BIOS setup using the Dell F1 or F2 key, make sure the HD is detected under Storage Devices. If not reinstall or replace it.

The Troubleshooting steps also provide everything that can be done to repair Win7, leading up to if necessary rescuiing your files to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore or doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
