If you put in the windows 7 install disk it should allow you to do a clean install (choose custom option, delete all the partitions) just by booting from the windows 7 disk. this WILL DELETE all your files and documents and programs though, so back up and your files and documents and make sure you have CDs/DVDs/ISOs of your programs so you can reinstall them. There is NO WAY to save your programs, they have to be reinstalled. Your documents can be burned to a CD though.

You might confirm you have proper driver support for each component in the system, and make sure you have the drivers on hand to install once you have installed Windows 7.
