Can I run a Windows 7 repair disk that was created on a different PC?
I have an issue with my desktop PC.
I believe I have a corrupted system file since the HDD is no longer bootable; however I have been able to remove the infected drive and install it as a slave on my HTPC. This has allowed me to backup all my important files.
My question... I'd like to run a Repair on the existing Windows 7 install but I never created a rescue disk when the OS was operational. Can I create a repair disk using my Windows 7 OS off the HTPC and run it over my desktop PC? Or is the disk specific to the PC the OS belongs to.
I'd like to avoid a fresh reinstall if possible.
