    Okay. So I removed my Windows partition to do a clean install of 7, as I needed to make the partition larger. I thought this would be less of a headache than using partition managing software.

    Well, the comp completely froze up in the middle of the partition (because I was using it like a fool), so I had to reboot. Now it is giving me this. (See attachment.)

    I have no clue what to do. I do have a backup from the 31st that I can restore to, but Time Machine seems to only restore the appearance, and not the actual partitions. Not sure how to do it in Disk Utility.

    I had the idea of creating a free space of 130 GB, so that I could then just boot into the Windows 7 disc and format that way, however, this error came up: (This, despite verifying and repairing the disk.)
