Default Re: Win 7 install issues

What I always do before attempting a clean windows install on a new hard drive is
1. boot from an Ubuntu live CD
2. open gparted
3. format the hard drive which will be used for the installation of Windows (make sure to do it in ntfs. Windows doesn't like ext4 )
4. install Windows

If that still doesn't work, try to make new partition tables with gparted.

It would also be a good idea to make sure your Windows 7 installation disk is clean and has no scratches on it.
