If this walkthrough paralyzes your hamster or causes you any emotional distress, we never spoke and I don't know you.
Most PC experts will recommend you start fresh and "pave" your machine anyway.

You found it on the intertubes for free, so what do you expect. My relative has a nice basic Dell desktop with a gig of RAM and a 100 gig HD.
The machine is 3-4 years old, so I didn't think a Windows 7 install would be unreasonable.
