you say re-partitianed, did you create this yourself, or did this happen when installing win 7? I guess this would be like setting aside an amount of space and installing win 7. But this scenario you've really have win xp (for example) and win 7. Or win7 and win7.

Normally, when I do this, which is about every 2 years with my laptop. ERR!

I just completely delete everything including the partitians, then when re-installing win xp, or win 7 it will automatically create the proper partitians again.

I would try to do a complete delete, then reinstall win 7.

I went from xp to win 7 on my desktop, I had to save new drivers for my internals on a SD card to make the swap. You shouldn't have to worry about that tho if you originally had vista.

----------

You will get to a screen that will have an option to delete/manage manually I think..?

anyhow, chose this option then delete any partitians until all you have left is the C drive

And no back-up?...possibly lost when you formatted your partition(s)? It's easy to do such things with Linux...screw it up...to a total fresh install with no legal issues. Not so with Microsuck. If you have something like Norton anti-virus you may be able to salvage the situation since it includes tools for some repairs. Beware of some 3rd party registry error repair tools other than something like Norton.

upgrading over an exsisting operating system can be problematic...especially with Vista

I'd recommend backing up your stuff, noting any email setting and things like that then doing a clean install of Windows 7

and as long as your Win 7 is a legit copy, there are no "legal issues" with doing a re-install

A bit of related discussion regarding this. Scroll down and read the replies.

http://superuser.com/questions/12786...ing-windows-xp

A bit more;

http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/faq.aspx

No such mumble jumbo wanted ($$$$);

http://www.opensuse.org/en/

No product key, copy installation DVD's and give them away legally, install on as many HD's/PC's as you like, no more anti-virus program, open office unlike Microsuck Word/etc. is free. If you want wipe a HD and re-install legally..with out even thinking about it. Help keep Microsuck, anti-virus apps and Mac making billions...stick with their products.

I hated everything about Vista when I had it. It never seemed to cooperate with anything. Seems like it maybe the reason for you problems with your 7 upgrade. I would do what the others have said, Wipe that thing clean then Install 7.
