Help needed with Windows 7 Installation

Hello, i'm new on this forum and need help with my Win 7 Installation.

Firstly, i'm sorry for my english.

I have HP 635 laptop and it came with Linux SLED11. I wanted to install Windows 7 on it and deleted all partitions for that. After i deleted my partitions I wanted to install Windows from my USB stick, but i ran into error: "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition". I have messed little around in diskpart and tried to reformat the disk, and i have tried everything.
Also when i run laptop again, it still wanted to load GRUB.

Now i just wanted to test if i can install win XP for that ( from CD ) and Win XP was installed successfully.

Maybe there is something wrong with my USB??

Please need help.

  2. Hi

    It seems you were not able to delete the MBR (masterboot record) which is on first sector on the hard disk

    Windows has a problem with some Unix/Linux boot systems and partitions

    There are a number of utilities which can erase either the MBR or first cylinder or whole hard disk

    I assume you used the official Microsoft utility for putting Windows 7 on a USB memory stick
