Windows 7: Where to install Windows 7 64 bit

Where to install Windows 7 64 bit

I have inserted my disc to reinstall windows. I have two spots available to install windows. "Disk 0 Unallocated space" and "Disk 0 Partition 1". When I click on "Disk 0 Unallocated Space" it says Windows cannot be installed on this disk because it is only 100 MB and it needs more space. That's the maximum space that it possesses. I have tried to install it on "Disk 0 Partition 1", but it does not work... What should I do????

You'll have to change your unallocated space to a primary partition. Here's a tutorial on how to do that, just click on the link : Partition or Volume - Create New

If you have any questions or problems, someones always here to help .

Always delete all partitions shown during the booted Clean Install Windows 7
using the Drive Options shown in Steps 7 and 8. Then create and format your partition(s) as desired.
