Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 on an old computerI am trying to install window 7

What kind of drive is that small? Flash stick? It doesn't say removable.

As stated earlier it may only need to be wiped with Diskpart Clean Command

Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3
6.8Gb Drive

If you look at the second screen shot in post #4 you will see it at the bottom. It is a IDE Hard Drive. Yes it is small, but my computer is old. It is 10 years old!!! The hard drive itself is even older. I was using it to put my pagefile.sys in XP. I read it was better on another drive to the OS.

Thanks again for your help.:)
