Windows 7: Reinstall win7 from windows.old

I'm sorry for the late reply.
Reading stuff about the "Windows.old - restore" I found out that chances are good that I have to reinstall a lot of stuff after I did the restore. Now most of my programs are on my E: drive. I saw that alot that just work. I "only" have to reinstall a few "heavy" progs like Windows Office. So I decided to NOT do the "old.windows" retore, but just reinstall the progs I need one by one on my "new" Windows 7 installation.
Nevertheless, I bookmarked this page because I'm sure it will be very useable in the future. I also want to express my thanks to all the people that helped me with this issue (especially MHz07!)
