I recently updated my not so official copy of windows 7 with the automatic updates (i bought the computer, wasnt aware windows wasnt legit but he said everything is good). Ive updated before. needless to say i have been gettin some torrents. now when i restarted after the windows load screen the computer reboots. i put a windows 7 disc in the cd rom and try to reinstall, when I hit install it just says remove the disc and restart the computer? All i want is to erase and start over. what am i doing wrong, why is it so hard to format my partition :D  grrrr

Hi :) 

Easy answer...

BUY a genuine copy of Windows 7 and insert the disc....

Apart from that we cannot help you with ILLEGAL versions of Windows here as its against Toms rules...

All the best Brett :)
