Windows 7: Windows 7 startup repair

Do you still have the Product Key with COA for the Win7 you bought but didn't use? Does it have SP1 included in the DVD? It saves hours of updating to have an installer with SP1 which we can help you with.

You can copy out any stranded files using Win7 DVD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Later you'll want to have your son find the packaging, email with Product Key or bank information for his online purchase so he doesn't throw away a $100+ OS.

I think I do. I need to find it. However, I dont think it has SP1 included. Can I download SP1, or do I have to buy one?
Thanks for your help in advance.

What is the version and bit rate, e.g. Win7 Home Premium 64 bit?

Yes, as you download your updates Service Pack 1 eventually shows up on the update list. It takes a while as you have to do other updates 1st.

Are you going to answer so I can link you to a Win7 installer with SP1?

My son is back. I will talk to him to see whether he still has the installation DVD. I will let you know as soon as I have a "gut" to tell him what had happened to his computer. Hopefully I will know more in a day or two.

Greg:

I just now got around and checked with my son. It is Windows 7 Pro Version 64 bit and without SP1. Can you help me with reinstallation?
