Do you have any personal data that you care about anywhere on any partition on this hard drive?

To put it another way, would you care if all data and all information on any partition on that hard drive magically disappeared?

Well, I am confused.

Your original post says:

"when i try installing xp.. it shows setup is starting windows.. and then gives me blue screen of death!"

So I thought you had no operating system at all and this was an empty drive.

So, forgetting about Windows 7, your biggest problem is that you cannot boot into Windows XP, which is your operating system? And you can't boot into it because you can't remember a password?

If that is right, why are you trying to install Windows 7 right now?

In an earlier post you said:

"with 7 im doing a clean install on a diffrent partition."

Why a different partition? Why not on the same partition Windows 7 is already on?

because w7 is on c:\ wich contains all my save files for games...
and there is not enough room to install on there without formating the drive.

so my plan was install w7 on another partition.. or any other os..
then burn a password recovery tool to a disc.. and get my password back..
because i dont have access o another burner...

but i can't seem to install any operating system
