When downloading the .iso file, does it matter which version (Home, Ultimate, Professional) I download to use? Does it have to be the same as the computer that I am repairing?

It must be the same 32-bit or 64-bit version. It doesn't have to be the same edition, but it would be best if it was.

Okay, thank you. I was checking through the downloads on the dell link you provided a few posts ago, but there was no option for Enterprise, so what would be the best fit from the other three?

For Enterprise, you could download the ISO files for the 90-day evaluation below at Microsoft for this.

Thanks for the tutorial.

I do some IT support. I know you can dual boot 7 for 32 and 64 bit editions, but could I create a setup on a USB stick to dual boot for Win 7 SP1 Repair 32 and 64 bit versions? What I'm thinking in fact is to have a usb stick with 5 partitions, 2 for the aforementioned, 2 for SP2 when it comes out and a fifth partition for data/storage. I guess it would also be beneficial to put the respective ISO files in each partition. Any ideas on how to go about this would be much appreciated.

thank-you a great tutorial. I have made a repair disk but it's on a re-writable disk is that OK or should it be on a normal DVD disk or CD ?

A normal or re-writable DVD will be fine.

Can I create the Syst Repair on one and use on another

Can I create this System Repair disk on my Win 7 computer and use it to repair another Win 7 computer. Both are laptops. The one that is having the problem is an HP.

Hello ExcelsiorPC, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If both PC are the same 32-bit or 64-bit type, then yes you can use it on both.

Do note that a "System Repair Disc" is not the same as an "OEM Factory Recovery/Restore disc", and cannot reinstall Windows. It can only be used to boot to and use "System Recovery Options" screen.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey. I am wondering, is there any way how to make repair disc on USB ? It's been like 5 years I had used any dvd drive and I don't have access to any currently.

I had found this program ... TotalMounter - a Free Virtual CD/DVD Burner That's Easy to Use. Anybody has experience with it ? Guess I can burn repair disc to image, but I am not sure how to place it on USB afterwards so it's bootable. Thanks for help.
