    - 31 steps total, every step is screen-captured

    First, insert your Windows 7 Boot Disk into your dvd drive and reboot your PC
   While the PC is rebooting, you will be prompted ” Press any key to boot from CD…” Just press any
    key here

   After you press a key, windows will load installation files.
   Windows 7 setup will start
   Select your language, time and currency format and keyboard input (US)
   Click Install Now to proceed
   Setup will load for a min or two
   If you do, select I accept the license terms and click Next
   If you are upgrading from Windows Vista select Upgrade, if you had Windows XP you have to select
    Custom (Advanced). Upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 is not available. Click Custom
    (Advanced)
   Select the Partition where you want to install Windows 7 and click Next. You will need at least 5716mb
    free space.
   If you don’t have enough free space to Install Windows 7, you will receive the following warning
   If that’s the case, you will need to format the partition where you previously had Operating System
    installed. WARNING: Formatting a partition will erase all existing data on the partition, proceed only if
    you have backed up all your files!
   If you want to format the partition, go to Drive options
    and format the partition where you want to install windows 7. Again, do this only if you have backed up
    your documents/files!
    click format and then yes
   After you press Next, Windows 7 Installation will begin. Approximately takes about 30 min to 1 hour to
    finish, depending on your computer speed.
   After half an hour, setup is complete and windows 7 installation is almost finished. Few more minutes
   Now your computer will reboot, since the Windows 7 DVD boot disk is still in the drive, the message
    press any key to boot from DVD will appear. We already did that, so this time DO NOT press
    anything. Just wait 5 sec and your PC will continue booting and finish installing your operating
    system.
   Windows will continue booting and installing, almost there!

   Finally!
    Insert your name (this will be your windows username)
   If you want to, insert password for your computer. ( Hey….you won’t forget it, right? :) )
   Insert your Windows 7 product key and press Next
