    windows 7, windows 8

    I have similar issue, but what I wanted to do is to make clean install on windows 8. I had windows7 and when I tried to format the partition of the win7, it started giving me an error. Then I deleted the partition and I couldn't create a new one from the unused space. I tried looking on websites but so far, no luck. Any ideas? - Webdesign, advertising and marketing agency.
