installing windows 7 onto my desktop help
On my new desktop, i think i have downloaded windows twice onto the same hardrive and so it wont start, what do i do!?
Insert the windows 7 disc into your disk drive and boot into it, then load the disc and go into the setup page.
Delete all the partitions on your hard drive and click format. Later on partition your hard disk into half and install windows 7 on Local Disk : C. You'll be able to boot into Windows 7 once once the installation is complete.

Turn on your computer so that Windows starts normally, insert the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive, and then shut down your computer.
Restart your computer.
Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.
On the Install Windows page, enter your language and other preferences, and then click Next.
On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms, and then click Next.
On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.
On the Where do you want to install Windows? page, choose the partition containing your previous version of Windows (this is often the computer's C: drive), and then click Next.
In the Windows dialog box, click OK.
Follow the instructions to finish installing Windows 7, which include naming your computer and setting up an initial user account.
