Hello juman, welcome to Seven Forums!


Use this tutorial at the link below to put the Windows 7 installer on a USB stick, then boot that and the first thing to try is an sfc /scan, have a look at this second tutorial and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

You have to be booted into Windows to run a repair install.

Too bad mate, the only option I can think of is to use an external DVD reader.

Doesnt look like you tried hard enough. Use a different usb stick and try again. That stick that didnt work, try booting from it on a different computer- that'll tell you whether the stick is bootable or not.
