Choose Custom, then Partition/Format on the install. You need to initialize the hard drive, partition the hard drive (at least one partition for the operating system, others are best left until after windows is loaded), and format the partition. If you cannot do this with the install disk, then get Sony software utility and burn to CD and use that to initialize and partition the drive. Leave the formatting to Windows 7 install to do. If the Sony software does not work, return the drive for a new one or call Sony for RGA and replacement.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
