Water has gone under the bridge! I've got things as I want them now. Have Windows 7 with a clean install.
Now for the rest of the story:
As you remember, I got my running in Vista (lucky) so I kept it on. But as you know the installation process requires a restart. That's when my luck ran out. Was never able to start the system again. I gave into it and took it to a local repair shop. He found that the problem was a bad hard drive.
I looked in the mirror and saw one dumb a**. The computer finally quit seeing the drive. I guess it was slowly dieing on me. I used the HD drive check and it showed all ok. But that was of course when it booted up! When trying to boot from a disk, I pressed F10. The screen showed I had two drives. It labeled the slave drive but the OS drive was never labeled. I noticed it but never saw what it said. It was right there if front of me.
Well thanks for your effort.
