well i tried that, but when it gets to the screen that ask where to install. there is no drive to be found. something is majorly screwed up which is why i need a complete wipe before startup.
Based on your first post about this problem it looked as if your computer was still somewhat functional, though perhaps too buggy to use.
If you booted from W7, and chose a clean install rather than an upgrade install, I do not understand why no drives would be shown.
Could you post a more detailed description of what the computer state is?
If you have run the Live CDs, What sort of results have you gotten?
Is your drive recognized in BIOS?
Is your hard drive showing any signs of life?
