  1. Clean Install


    I'm trying to install Reinstall Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire E5575 off of a USB media creation tool. When asked what Drive to install on my only option now is drive 0 unallocated space 931.5 GB free space. When I select install i get the error message saying that windows can not be installed on this drive. Disk may fail soon and to please select another drive. Also when i select repair pc on the recovery window it says that its unable to repair my pc. I messaged with support and all they said was i needed to but a new hard drive. I would like a second opinion because the pc was working and functional a couple days ago, just was running really so which is why Initiated the reset process. Thanks for any advice.

    :)
     

  2. Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
