    Red face what partition to put in windows7?

    Being female I wanted to do this myself. trying to install windows7 and I am stuck with "where do you want to install Windows"? I have 4 Disk 0 and Partition 1 (OEM reserved)
    Partition 2 140.3 gb System
    Disk 0 Unallocated Space
    Partition 3 HDDRECOVERY Primary. I installed it before but it ended up in System and there was only 6.6 gb left..



    It wont let me install in other partition ,so hopefully you are able to help me with this.

    (There was windows vista installed before on my old ..not old but I only used it for photo's ...laptop)
    Thank you, Sarah

    Partition 2 140.3 gb is the place to install

    System OEM reserved is for the manufacturers garbage and bloatware that originally came with the PC and Partition 3 HDDRECOVERY contains the original Installation files that are used if you ever want to restore the to original factory settings.

    Can you post a picture of your Disk Management. That would make things clearer.
