Could very well be a daft question, nevertheless here goes
I have a dell desktop PC (XPS420) and the previous OS was Vista Home Premium. I acquired a copy of the new Win 7 disc and did a custom installation (clean install I hoped) which I am of the opinion should have also formated my C: drive. Is that correct?
Having completed the installation I now find that all is not working as expected. e.g. I find a folder c:\windows.old which on examining contains data which were previously files from my old operating system. Very confusing.
I would like to reinstall and wonder if it is possible. Can anyone advice as to whether it is possible to another clean install (custom) and is it possible to do so in an effort to get rid of all previously files .
Tks for your advice in advance and hopefully you can guide me correctly to acquire a completely clean C: drive completely rid of all previously installed old data.
P.S. Is there anywhere I can find a list of compatibile software which are compatible with WIn 7.
