Hey guys I have an asus g71g and I want to put a fresh windows 7 on it. When I get to the installation section I notice that there is lots of partitions like: disc 0 partition 1, disc 0 partition 2 DATA, disc 1 partition 2 etc... This laptop had a previous user and I do not know if its safe to delete these or whats what. I do not have the discs that came with the laptop so I do not want to screw something up. My previous laptops only had one partition I could just delete. Help is greatly appreciated thanks!

If you are installing from a DVD you can delete all of the existing partitions. Some laptops come with a recovery partition and also split the main drive in two, one for the OS and the other for data. I normally delete all when i'm doing a fresh install.

Well...if you don't have the disks that came with the system...what is the method you intend to use to "reinstall"?

System manufacturer and model?

Appears to me that your only option is to restore to factory defaults.
