You should be able to do a clean install of Windows. Just insert the installation disc and press any key when indicated. Optical drive needs to be the first boot option. Go into BIOS and change it is not. As for disc, you have to use the same Windows version as indicated on the MS Product Key sticker, because of the serial number.
To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region. You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made. NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change. If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk. The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: - www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm
I found this on a Vista Forum: Re: Access to C Drive
I figured it out -- you have to take ownership of the drive away from the "TRusted Installer" account, which can be used only by Windows, and assign it to one of your administrator accounts.
AVG did this! So now your C: drive can be accessed by "Trusted Installer" and not you. You are an Administrator so you need to go to permissions and assign the C: drive to you and NOT the "Trusted Installer"
