Greetings to all. Hope someone can tell me the correct procedures for doing a clean re-installation. I have the original installation disk and my OS Win 7x64.

 

Thanks for any help and advice.

It's pretty simple, start by backing up all the data you want to keep, like pictures, movies, etc... And once you back up your data, place the OS CD in the tray and close it, then power off your computer.  After the computer is off, you can then press the power button and as it is booting before it loads windows, tap the F12 key located above the backspace as the computer is booting.  It should bring up a boot menu, and from there you will select your CD-drive and the PC will boot off of the OS disc.  After pressing enter on the selection, it will say "press any key to boot from CD..." and you must press a key on the keyboard, the mouse does not count, then it will boot to your OS CD.  This is the basic install menu, and from here you can select to continue the installation until it comes to a screen where you see your hard drive, now here you can delete all the partitions on your hard drive, and then continue the process in which it will create 2 new partitions, one for you and one for the system. And from there the CD will take you through the rest of the installation process where it will unpack windows files, install them, and make sure you have the windows product key handy, usually a blue service sticker located somewhere on your computer or in your OS CD case, you will have to enter in the key and you must be connected over the internet in order to fully activate your new installation of Windows 7.  Hope this helps, and good luck to you!
