Windows 7: unable to use Windows 7 System repair Disc

Yes, I checked that and models are matching exact. The problem is that only windows 7 Japanese version from Fujitsu Japan doesn't provide any dvd recovery, but each license holder has to create his own recovery dvd/cd, which I believe is so stupid.

I checked again the f8 key, and yes it works after installing new version of win 7 home premium. Sadly, the Japanese version is no longer on my PC and some hardware can't be identified...

Look like now I have only two options left for me:

1- install windows 7 from the iso link you provided

2- buying a recovery dvd from Fujitsu japan since they are the only ones who have it with the pre-installed softwares and drivers...

so I guess I will try the first option and see how things go.

BTW, I searched for a Japanese version for Fujitsu windows 7 home premium and couldn't find any... The installation DVD is being on sale on some JP sites for almost $93 bucks, but I won't buy it because it is none sense to do such thing since I have a license anyways...

I tired to recover the lost partition for the recovery system, but no software did the work after long hours of waiting...

Thanks

If the key is definitely F8 then it is wiped out when you reinstalled C since the F8 options are installed with the OS. You should have shrunk C to do a Dual Boot to try Win8.

If you can't run Recovery and didn't make your disks or a backup image, then your options are to either order Recovery Disks from Fujitsu Support, or get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

The ISO provided in Step 1 to burn to DVD or write to flash stick doesn't appear to be available in Japanese, so you may have to search further on the internet to find your licensed version to reinstall.

Fujitsu PC's come with Reinstall DVD, Drivers DVD, & software DVD.
well, maybe other Fujitsu country based, but not Fujitsu Japan... which I find it none sense...

if you don't mind, you can kindly share with us your ISO version or the DVD you posted to install the windows 7 Home Premium...

It is your choice anyways.

Thanks

How much does Fujitsu want for the Recovery disks there? It may be your best choice if you want Japanese Win7.

I don't know why the ISO isn't available in Japanese. Perhaps a deeper web search will turn it up, or someone here will know where to find it.

Be sure to rely on drivers from Windows Updates first as per the tutorial during Clean Reinstall, before importing any from the Fujitsu Support Downloads webpage. Then I would not reimport any of the software that isn't absolutely needed for a function you use or is missing in Device Manager. Look for hotfixes and patches that may solve any issues present after reinstall. We can help advise you and are interested in hearing how it goes to add to the tutorial if necessary.

Thanks, mate for the great comments.

well, the recovery disc cost about $55 bucks more or less, but they support want to ask me billion question before they proceed my order just to make sure that I need the disc or not... I explained to them many time, but they insist on following up with me step by step on the PC, which I don't have time to afford.

Anyways, I skipped the recovery disc and just now installed new version of win7 , but as usual the installation is unable to find some drives. I opened a thread here: Fujitsu drivers missing

well, the ISO is available in English as posted in Lifehacker site, but they say the language can be switched after all from the language packs.

Yes, you are right about Fujitsu support download.

Thanks again for the useful advise. Now I guess I need to take care of the drivers as my network in the new installation doesn't work...

Cheers

Did you follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to first install all Important and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3)? You may need to import your LAN driver to get online to do this.

Only after all rounds of Updates are done should you import any drivers. This is why I gave you tutorial, so you'd know how all of this is handled in Win7, which is not XP and handles drivers differently during install.

Yes, mate. I did all steps, but maybe because my PC originally Japanese so the drivers are identified in Japanese only. I tried English version drivers on the Japanese ones, but there is some bug going on so I uninstalled all I did...

but I found the rest of the stuff I'm after here: Fujitsu drivers missing and there is no need to recovery anymore.

That was very helpful

You can only get Language packs if you install Ultimate. As far as I know.
