Windows 7: Clean all still running after 24 hours.

I would first run Clean command to make sure the Boot sector and partition table are cleared.

Then boot into installer and use the Drive Options in Steps 7/8 of Clean Install Windows 7
to create and Format New partition(s) as you please, install Win7 to the first partition after the small boot partition it creates at the beginning of drive.

If you want a full format or to avoid the 100mb System REserved partition, use Step 2.2 in SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation without the Quick format switch.
