This is a tip explaining exactly how to do a clean install of Windows 7.
This tip will provide you with pictures and instructions to make it as easy as possible.

Before we start doing any installation, you need to know, that all the data on your C - drive or System drive will be lost. To ensure that you do not use any data, remember to backup all the data.

Also remember that you need to be sure that you have all the drivers for the devices. Although Windows 7 have a large internal driver database, there will still be some drivers which will not install automatically.

Now, after you have backed up all the data on your C - drive, and have all your drivers, we can start the installation process.

Firstly you need to insert the Windows 7 dvd into the dvd rom. Now, restart your computer, where you will be promted with the following screen. Once you see this screen, press any key to boot from the installation disc.


Once you have pressed the key, the installation process will start loading.

Now, click on the drive which you want to install Windows 7 on. Once you selected the drive, click on drive options to proceed.


Now, at the following srceen, click on the format option, once the format is done, click on next to proceed.


Now the installation of Windows 7 will continue as seen on the following screen.


Once the GUI - Setup is almost complete, your computer will restart automatically.


After the restart is complete, you will be promted with the following automated screens.









At the following screen you will need to type in your Username as well as a computer name.


Now you need to choose a password for your user account, as well as a Hint for your password.


Now you need to enter a product key for the version of windows which you installed. You can just click on next to proceed, but you will be promted to enter the product key within the first 5 restarts.


Just click on the recommended settings once you get to the next Option.


At the following screen you will be able to choose your time settings. Click next to proceed.


When promted with the next screen, choose the Home network option, to ease networking purposes. Click to proceed.



Now, you are done. The following screen is the last in the installation process.

Help please , hardware monitor found error

First, try by reinstalling Nero 7. If that doesnt work, it could be that your graphics driver does not have enough built in memory, and you will probably need to replace that. You could try installing the latest version of the driver for your graphics card first..

How much RAM do you have on your system? 128MB should be fine, but I recommend at least 512 MB installed.

Check these first and let me know how it goes..

I assume you have switched the monitor cable in the back to your video card before booting up. Also you must disable the onboard video and driver too by Start----->Control Panel----->System----->Hardware----->Device Manager and make sure the driver for the onboard video is disabled. You have to also change the BIOS settings by rebooting and pressing F4, F1, F2 or F6 (varies on computers) Once in BIOS, you have to use the arrow keys, Esc and Enter to navigate. Goto the Video Display options and change the onboard video to your new card 256 MB. Collow on screen promts to save it and reboot again. Should work now.
