Installing a new OS (Windows 7) - specific steps

  1. Hi everyone,

    Can anyone walk me through the steps of installing a new OS (windows 7)? Very slowly as I am utterly lost in the world of computers in general? :)

    How do I make partitions? How do partitions work? Do they take up extra memory? How many partitions can I have? I installed my Vista twice on my computer so there already may be more than partitions. How do I check and delete the partitions I don't need?

    Also, if possible, is there any way I can install a new OS and keep my previous language packs and keyboard information (for example, a US qwerty keyboard)?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
