    it keeps going to black and white screen that says windows failed to start, .............restart your computer .
    cant carry on installation in safe mode, wont even go into safe mode, and wont start or repair when starting windows normally

    Boot from win7 install dvd and do the shift+f10 trick Command Prompt at Startup

    Code:
    diskpart
    list  disk
    exit
    how many disks do you see. What is disknumber of physical disk you want to install win7 on?
    You want to get rid of all partitions on that disk?
