I have a Gateway CX2724 Tablet PC Notebook. Its original windows 7 got corrupted due to being not genuine. So I used windows 98 SE to format it using F disk. Once the HDD whose size is 320 GB got formatted, now I intend making partitions as follows:-
C Drive of 35 GB
D, E and F each of 90 GB
Furthermore I need to install windows 7 Ultimate. But when I use windows 98 SE it only reads the size of HDD to 43 GB instead of 320 GB. When I use Windows XP, it says no hard drive present. Neither Bootable Vista nor Bootable Windows 7 neither creates partition nor are they installed on the system.
The configuration as shown in the bios of my pc is as follows:-
Bios Version: 78.04
Main SATA: ST9320421AS-(S1)
CPU Type: Genuine Intel (R) CPU T2050
CPU Speed: 1600 MHz
L2 Cache Ram: 2048 KB
Total Memory: 2048 MB (Dual Channel Mode)
Slot 1 Memory: 1024 MB
Slot 2 Memory: 1024 MB
Video Memory: 8 MB
Please help me to make this system work!

If you have a legitimate Win 7 installation DVD and license, you can remove all existing partitions when you go through the install process. Simply boot from the DVD and step through the process.

Insert the Win 7 DvD and start the process....when ya Windows loaded in memory and before it starts copying files, you will be asked where and how to install it......have it make a 64 GB or whatever partition and complete the install .... it will make a small 100MB partition also for storing / backing up critical system files.

Once done with all the Windows Updates, open Disk Management and create the other partitions.
