3. Then follow the steps described in this post to get a working BB.
I did install OS (downloaded from this site actually) before trying the steps. I suppose I should have been more specific in asking does it matter where on the C drive it is installed, what folder, just assumed everyone would understand what I meant. Does it need to be in the RIM folder, under the Common files folder, just on the drive not in a folder? I did not use BBSAK since it was not mentioned in the original article but I will try now.
Install the OS where it automatically recommends you to on your computer.

my screen is completely black, when i tried using the apploader, it gives my pin but it wont erase it
i love this trewat and went throught reading all of the problems other are having and i nothing one other was having the same problem as me.
my 9550 screen is completely black, the light flashes red when battery is put back in or on the charger.
the phone work because lights on the button below are on and battery is high, becuase i checked it on another phone
and if i press the SAY A COMMAND bootton and say check battery, it reply battery is high.
a lcd/screen change did nothing for the problem.
i have done evething that i have read on this page and the 4 other more than twice...
is there anything else that MIGHT work?
(THE PROBLEM STARTED AFTER AN UPGRADE)
i've done ALL of the above exactly as instructed, but my device wont show usb-pin:unknown instead i get my own pin showing, please help this is the 2nd torch i've nuked in months last time i didnt know about this and had to replace my handset with another new one!!
Sorry for the late response shortie. If you're still having problems, read through this post: Nuked Blackberry? HELP! and see if it helps.

Let's start from the beginning. What is you device doing that makes it nuked?
Firstly, i have a Blackberry 9000 bold . When i try to turn on it, white screen appears with a thunderbolt in the middle . When the phone is to charge, always restarts . I think is a soft problem . Thanks
EDIT: Let me clear some things up. When you see the white screen and "thunderbolt" on your screen, is the phone off and plugged into the charger?

Can you start your phone and does it work normally when you do?
Hi stelistul, we need some background. Have you done any app downloading before this issue started? Were you downloading a new OS to your Bold when this started happening? Or did it suddenly start occurring?
Is there also an error code displayed?
Who is your carrier?
Do you have a BlackBerry data plan from your carrier?
Once we have this information, we can start coming up with solutions to get your Bold back up and running.

I have some photos. When is at charge appear the thundebolt or the red light . The phone not turn on(i have let it about 6 hours or more at charge and nothing...). A specialist who repair it two times ago tell me is a softwere problem . Phone not desplay a code error.
Does your PC see the phone when you connect it to desktop manager?
What worked with a friend of mine is the following:
Download BBSAK and wipe the phone (all information will be deleted).
When done rebooting connect to PC and start desktop manager, this will tell that your phone needs software. This can be installed as usual, just install latest software that desktop manager tells you their is.
Hope this will work like it worked for my friend.
Yes the PC see the phone, but when i try install stops at RIM:-? I will try your metode . Thanks
