Read some threads trying to find my solution ... and I'm sure it's here so sorry for probably asking a redundant question, but all I've discovered is that this site is way way over my head. I was able to reinstall Win7 Ultimate on my Dell laptop, Precision M6300 from a WIN7 disc I made following your site’s instructions. However, I noticed that 67 gigs was already in use and I know Win7 is not that large. Tried again and this time I did get the drive options, but NEW was grayed out. I tried using format and that would not work. There are 2 partitions. One is 2.1 gig and the other is 230.2. No idea what the 2.1 partition is, certainly too small for Win7. I would not be doing this except my computer was in an endless updates fail, cancel updates every time I turned it on. I uninstalled all my programs and deleted everything I had not moved to an external hard drive. I’m tempted to dban the hard drive, but that’s probably not a good idea. Yes, I also saved the drivers to a jump drive. Suggestions?
