Windows 7: How do I assign drive letter in Partition Wizard

Susan I'm assuming from your other thread that you have now deleted all partitions on your Acer HD, created new one and lettered it C. Now you can run the file scan.

After that, boot the GWScan uploaded to run full scan. It may autostart without having to set DVd/CD drive to boot first, otherwise do that in BIOS setup. Make sure you Acer HD is set to boot next.

Once you've verified the scan is being run on Acer HD C, then it is safe to also Write Zeros to HD to get it cleanest possible for Win7 install. But if you choose to do this, you'll need to use Drive Tools to create New partition to format, when you boot Win7 DVD to do a Custom Install using the tutorial I posted earlier.
