After having my HP Pavillion Notebook repaired and paying quite a lot for the job, I tried to load a saved Image with Macrium Software the maxchine crashed. I bought Windows 7 , Home Premium . but it does not load. I need to format the HD,, without having to remove from the notebook. Is there a way to bring the unit up via a USB Memory Stick so I can format the HD?

The notebook came originally with Vista Home Premium .

How old is this computer.....what was the original OS?


Did you purchase a Windows 7 CD....if so, and the CD-ROM and HD, among other things, are usable then the Win7 CD will format the HD.


What repairs did you have done? What problem needed correcting?
