CMD says the operation completed sucessfully, and any pending actions will be reverted after restart, i restart and get the same prompt when I attempt the SFC command. Also. it says the scratch directory size may be insufficient to perform this action. It then instructs me to point to a folder with sufficient space.

At this point you'd be better off investing in not just another reinstall, but a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 (same for retail) if you stick with the tools and methods given in the tutorial which is based on tens of thousands of them we've helped with here.

Pay extra atttention to how drivers are handled in Win7 which is not at all like XP. Have your network driver in your backup so you can get online quickly after install to enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) then do all rounds of Important and Optional Updates with reboots. Keep going back to run Updates until all rounds are done.

Then import any drivers still missing in Device Manager from the PC or Device's SUpport Downloads webpage. Don't change out any drivers given by Win7 unless you get Standard VGA display driver or another driver presents problems. We can help you determine this.

We could try this

During boot press F8 . That should get you to Advanced Boot Options . Press <enter> on Repair Your Computer . Select the OS click on the Next Button . Choose Command Prompt in System Recovery Options .

Inside command prompt type

Code:
sfc /SCANFILE=c:\windows\explorer.exe
If that wont work change the c: to d:

gregrocker: Im really hoping I dont have to have to do that, but I do have an OEM ready from DigitalRiver. Should I use the one in the Tutorial instead, if needed?
