If you read and do Repair Install ... you're actually doing a upgrade install. you're installing win7 HP over win7 HP. But all information is in tutorial.

The key on the COA is different then the key that windows is using now. You can use the key on the COA over and over and over again on that pc.

I got a problem, My Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool isn't detecting my USB. MY USB has 16GB free on it. I did not extract the ISO file i downloaded though.


I found the problem. MY USB is SanDisk and it is showing up as a hard disc drive not a removable device

I'm getting really mad about this, i just bought this USB drive and thought i was gonna do this repair today but now i have to spend my thanksgiving tomorrow finding a store that is open and buying a new USB. I don't want to run into the same porblem again,

So what USB brands are bootable and will run a OS

You can`t boot windows 7 from a flash drive.

Unless that`s not what you`re doing.

But you should be able to use any flash drive at least 4 GBs to install windows 7.

I take it you don`t have a dvd burner to burn the iso to dvd, much easier to install windows with a dvd for a novice.

Ok now I'm going insane, I went to the store got a different USB and i made it bootable. When i ran the ISO file from the USB and pressed Install now on the window that appeared, It said it couldn't complete the action because i was missing the WININET.dll file. is it time for the clean install?

Take it easy man ... you want to do a repair install isn't it? No need to make to usb stick bootable.
  1. extract the ISO (with winrar, or the usb/dvd tool) and put the files in a empty folder. That folder can be on disk or usb.
  2. run setup.exe from that folder

What ISO did you use, where did you get it from?
Sure you did download it succesfully? Sure you did extract it succesfully to an empty folder?
