Windows 7: "windows cannot be installed to disk 0 partition 1"

25 Dec 2017   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

It may have been said but, if you have no data you need on that hard drive, then delete ALL the partitions so you are left with nothing but unallocated space, after that, simply click next.

The install will then begin.

You should get your network drivers on a flash drive so you have them to install on the new W7 install and get online to get the rest of your drivers, laptops are very finicky :)

But all your drivers can be found at Dell.

Just follow the Clean Install tutorial that was posted and you`ll be fine.
