Those links allow me to download Windows 7, right? I already have that OS on my computer. Could you please let me know why you provided those links...is there something that I'm missing? Thanks again.
You can use it as a repair disc, you asked about downloading one...

I've looked everywhere on the Internet and I do not see it available.

Thanks for your help.

The bonus is that you should always have the installer in case you need to reinstall or repair your install.

Both discs will allow you to get to the System Recovery Options

OK, thanks. The system repair disk that I was referring to is the one that can be made from Windows "backup and restore" and allows me to boot, troubleshoot and reinstall the system image from an external USB drive . My computer keeps giving me the parameter error message every time I attempt to do so. I was not looking for an entire Windows 7 installation program. I already have the original Win 7 installation disk which was purchased years ago and I've used it numerous times to repair my system in the past, but not to reimage.

But thank you for the link. Can I assume that it's a legal, free version of Windows 7?

I know what you were referring to, since both can do the same thing in regards to accessing this,



They are basically the same on that front, with the installer you also get the benefit of being able to reinstall as well if you need to.

Yes, the link is a Microsoft link, free and legal.

If I were you I'd grab it before time runs out, it's an updated version so if you needed to do a repair install you would need that instead of your older one if it doesn't have SP1.

OK, I've downloaded Win 7 and converted the iso to a disk. I also downloaded Macrium and EaseUSTodo and they both seem to work great at restoring an image file. But I don't see that they can restore a cloned external USB drive. So rather than clone, I'm making system image files. Haven't had to restore one yet but I don't see any issues with having to do so.

In any case, I was not able to figure out why my computer is not able to make a system repair disk and I keep getting that parameter error. I'm not going to worry about it at this point.

Thanks for all of your help. Very much appreciated. Looks like I came to the right place for assistance.

Hi,
If you ever decide to clean install see these first so updating is minimal time wise
