What error message are you getting on bootup?
If you do blow out your operating system and reinstall on the same computer, you shouldn't have any problems with office.
It will only startup off of the Windows7 disk. If I don't put this in I get a message that says it is looking for a file called \windows\system32\winload.exe. It tells me to put the install disk in and select the repair installation option which I have done about three times now. Since I only have a few programs installed I thought I could just start over. I had moved from XP to 7 so it did the format anyway and I haven't bothered to restore many of my data files. I was waiting to see if something like this happened.
