The tutorials are full of very helpful information, check this link and see if it might get you going, sounds like you've formatted the drive already so this may be your only choice.
FYI for future reference you don't need to format to remove a windows.old folder, disk cleanup within Win7 can do that.

I accidentally formated all partitions.No
bootmgr is missing.No Windows is listed to
repair. When I want install Windows 7. It gets
stucked at expanding windows. Files
Thank in advance
If you formatted all partitions (let's not discuss
why you did that) then there are free and
effective tools out there that can repair that. As
one solution, using another computer,
download Parted Magic and burn the ISO to a
CD/DVD. Then boot the original computer using
that disk. On it you will find GParted. On
Youtube you will find plenty of tutorials on how
to use gparted or testdisk to restore lost
Hi, Since you formatted your drive, you could
install win 7 without any problem.
The stop at expanding stage is due to the
scratching in the disc. If you have the ISO or
any other disc , try that it will pass the expand
stage to install windows , if there is no side
The install.wim should expand the files. In
some system, it takes a little more time to
expand due to the repair in hdd.
I would suggest you to go to the website of the
hdd of your to download the tool , diagnostic ,
one and boot it from the cd. Normally those
tools are available in dos form, so it would be
booting automatically to show the hard dsik. If
there is no failure of hdd, then you can format
there . There will be options to format c:. Do it
,with the help of that software. if your hdd is
Seagate, then the link would give an idea to you

The boot mgr missing problem will be there if
all the things are not properly copied to the dvd.
How did you burn the OS. There are simplest
way of booting with usb, rather than dvd. For
that you must have a 4 gb pen drive. The
instructions are so simple, that you could use
without much trouble. But mind, that you
should have the original windows 7 intact with
all the files in its original form with all the files
without one missing file in any folder
particularly install.wim folder.
You could use imgburn to burn it as iso in some
other computer and then install the same , by
selecting burn to dvd by the instructions. It will
enable booting the OS, by installing the
windows from the DVD.
First you use copy files to image to burn to Iso,
and then just burn that to dvd using , the
approprate menu, burn image to dvd menu.
That is so easy and imgburn is free tool. ' The

pendrive. Shut down and reboot. Then just
select the priority to boot
from usb in the bios, if you have. If that is not,
please download plbt

screen menu from cd,
if you boot from cd first,which will have usb as
