Problem with HD on Acer Aspire 3050

Hello. This labtop has a 160 gb drive w/2 partitions, and came with Home basic Vista. I've tried toupload it to Win 7, and it won't do it, and now I can only acces the data drive/partition, but not the system drive. I cannot, obviously, load any win 7 or vista. Thanks,
Harry

    Yes, I do.
  4. Do it in two steps.

    First re-install Vista Home Basic with just one partition. Get the laptop running.

    Next use the Win 7 Upgrade DVD and upgrade Vista to Win 7.

    Finally make a backup of the entire computer.
