Why are you doing this & why aren't you using the recovery partition? All you do is press F9 at startup.

why donot you take an external DVD writer and do the following :-
1. Insert the Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.
3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.
6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.
7. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.

"I want to install Windows 7 to notebook....it has no CD ROM"

Is the CD drive broken? (you would need a DVD drive anyway)
Is it a netbook rather than a notebook?
Are you sure it meets the requirements for Win7?
Is it capable of booting off USB devices?
Did you change the boot order?
Which OS is currently installed?

It's not a notebook, it's a NETbook.

Let's start over. Did it come with XP or Win7 preinstalled? If it came with Win7, why aren't you using the recovery partition?

Win 7 Home.
Yes, I did it correctly.
I can't use any partition. It just ignores everything.
Is there any possibility to format in via BIOS? I think that would help. I did this with my new Acer.
