  1. Hi :)

    Format them ALL ...then install...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. wow, that's a large "System" partition. Windows creates the SYstem partition.

    Currently, what is on Partition 2 and partition 3?
  3. this laptop was given to me...Im not sure whats on partition 2. partition 3, i believe holds the Media Direct software...I also have a Dell Media Direct CD that came with it. Should I use partition 2 for win 7 install?

  5. I think that I would delete partitions 2 and 3 and install to that "unallocated space".
  6. What OS did the PC come with ?
  7. @ Nedal0. dont know about the previous OS. no hard drive when i recieved it...i got new drive for it
  8. ok, Can I just use partition 2 and leave 1 and 3 alone?...and have no problems?
