Use DBAN to clean the drive.
Google will find it for you!

I don't believe there is a virus that can do that. Booting to a DVD would prevent any virus to affect the installation program.

You can delete the vista partition and that should get rid of the virus. If you are upgrading to get rid of the virus it may only return.

Google is evil

✔ Best Answer
you can either do an upgrade or a fresh install with windows 7. Select the fresh install and it will wipe your drive.

Sounds to me like you put the win 7 disc in and then tried to run it while you had Vista DOESN'T work that way. Put the win 7 disc in and then reboot....make sure your pc is set to boot from CDROM and not HD.
