Windows 7 RTM is available on 7 August 2009 and you can login to Technet website ( in order to download the iso file.

3.Tick and accept the license terms.

4. Select custom type of installation.

5. You will see your hard disk space. Click on Drive option to create a partition.

6. Select New and enter your partition size.

7. The system will prompt and ask to create 100MB of system boot partition. The concept is almost similar as creating /root partition in linux. By allocate this system reserve, your system run a bit faster. (i think ...:)..)

8. It will look like this after creating the partition.

9. Click Next and start the installation.

10. After the system finish installing the operating system, it will prompt to enter username and computer name.
