I would check the drive in Disk Management and be sure there is nothing on the drive. A 90Gb drive is going to forat to less than 90Gb. this is due to the difference in the way the marketers advertize capacity and the way Windows formats the disk. the manufacturer marketing use a base 10 (Decimal) math. Windows uses a bianary system where the base is 1024 instead of 1000

The amount used can also be affected by whether it was an upgrade or clean installation, too. An upgrade will often save the old version in case you want to revert.

Yes.. But How do we determine a clean install? I swore I did a clean install.. Does it have anything with the partition? It never ask me difference. Is this result of my boot disc?
