    I am thinking about upgrading my hdd with an ssd... my question is how do i do a clean install of windows 7?
    I dont want to reinstall from a system image, and do not own a system installation disc.
    I did make a system repair disc however, is this the same?

    Please help guys :) anything will be appreciated.

    How you would do a clean install on your setup would depend on exactly what you had to use. Since it appears to be OEM type of install, perhaps checking their procedures would be the best thing. We have no way to know what is on your Repair disc, but if it is a normal Windows Repair CD, you can not use it to install.
