Well, one night i gave my laptop to my roomates to watch a movie, and in the morning it wouldn't start up. It just goes into the windows loading screen and then resets. Since I didn't want to lose my school files or try repair at the time (exam time), I just set up a dual boot with Ubuntu. And now that I'm out of school, I have backed up all my data to an external drive, and I'd like to go back to using Windows 7, so I figured I reinstall it from scratch, thus getting rid of Ubuntu. But if I can do a repair install, that would be fantastic. How would i approach that? Just boot from the Win 7 cd and follow instructions?
