2GB RAM is really too little for Windows 7 and could account for the slow installation. For 32bit version you should install 4GB (3.2GB to 3.5GB usable) and if your system supports it 8GB or more for 64bit version is what I strongly recommend.
I also recommend a 120GB or larger partition for Windows 7, especially if you plan on installing your programs on C drive also. I do not have a lot of programs installed compared to many and I am running over 100GB used out of the 240GB SSD drive that is my C drive. Even 120GB could begin to slow if it begins to fill up (Windows 7 recommends a minimum of 15% free space at all times).

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

Is this a clean installation; or an upgrade routine?

Partitioning & formatting is usually done during Windows installation, not beforehand. You have a 750GB HDD but only created a 100GB partition? What about the other 600GB+/-?

Why are you backing up on the same hard drive? A backup should be done on a completely different drive. If the drive dies, you lose the original data as well as the backup.

Run Seatools from Seagate DOS version from bootable CD or flash drive and run the short test. If there are minor problems like a few bad sectors it will fix them. If there are too many bad sectors or other physical problems then it will tell you and you should absolutely replace the drive immediately or risk loosing everything. Your choice but anything greater than maybe 2 or 3 bad sectors is trash to me and needs to be backed up without delay to an external drive or DVD's, even before running out to purchase a new drive.
