Windows 7: Windows 7 Repair Install Problems

Windows 7 Repair Install Problems

Hey guys

So I've been having problems with my internet connection now since yesterday (cannot for the life of me get "Remote Access Connection Manager" to start, and cannot get a PPPoE connection going at all...)

So I read somewhere that an in-place upgrade install would help.

So I popped my Windows 7 DVD in (this DVD contains both x86 and x64 bit installs!), yet I do not get this screen:



My install goes directly to the drive screen where you select which drive you want it to be installed on...

I read in this post that it can be remedied by deleting one of the files on the ISO...but I can't for the life of me find out which file it is.

I have removed numerous files, including a file named "Autounattend.xml", and nothing has changed.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Elliott

I have no idea about your Internet connection issues.

But--you might consider downloading a fresh ISO from My Digital Life dot info for your particular version of Windows.

Then burning it and using it for an install. You would have to use your existing Product Key to activate it.

I'm guessing that there may be something cuckoo about your current install disc.

Thanks but I'd like to try and get this fixed without using another DVD or downloading anything (I'm really close to my bandwidth limit this month)

You can open the DVD in Computer and run the Setup file for your bit-version to Repair Install.
If you haven't tweaked your computer too much it may correct your IP settings. These issues are almost always self-imposed.

But you really need to have a bootable DVD for rescue purposes, so I'd burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed and confirm it can boot and run Repairs. If not, make a System Repair Disc - Create

Thanks.

Where are the install files located exactly on the DVD?

The DVD I have is a bootable DVD; that's how I installed Windows 7 in the first place.

As stated, run the Setup File.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Do you have the ISO?

I have run the setup file, and that's how my problem (above) occurs. Yes I did burn the DVD myself (and at a slow speed, might I add). Yes I have the ISO also.

I think the problem is (as stated in my OP), there is a file that is automatically starting the install process without letting em choose anything (read the other thread that is posted in my OP).

Can you post back a screenshot of your DVD drive with the folder Opened?

Did you make a Universal installer with ISO;s for both 32- and 64-bit? If so I'd burn only the bit-version to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed. You could extract the files from the ISO to run the Repair install, too, but you need a Repair CD for rescueability so might as well burn the installer instead.
