Ok so I am using a bootable flash drive with the Windows 7 ISO on it and I got as far as having to choose where to install windows to. I selected my brand new HD in my laptop and at first it started giving me some kind of error. I looked it up and I found it has something to do with "partitions" and a bunch of other crap I didn't know about. Well I clicked on a button on the install window that said "new" and clicked around a minute and then my HD disappeared from the list of install destinations altogether!

So I rebooted my laptop and tried again and this time the HD was back and I clicked on it and it went through the first step (something like "installing windows files") but then right after the next step (expanding windows files) got to 100% my computer rebooted and wanted me to start the installation process all over again like it never even started. What do I do? Please help! Thank you!

Did you remove the USB flash drive? Try that and reboot the computer.

Just take the flashdrive out.
Boot your PC.
And it'll boot to Windows.
