What was the original problem for why you were wanting to do a repair install?
Hi thanks for helping me solve the issue on the computer (the first problem)
The second problem I have is that the laptop is windows 7 professional SP1.
My disk is windows 7 professional (not SP1)
I was recommended to do a repair as i'm having an issue with printer spooler (in services.msc). Trust me with the printing issue I have asked a lot of people and they recommended to do a repair install, the printer works etc with windows 7 professional as it works on my computer so please don't suggest things to help me fix the printer as the printer is a right pain and I've already tried reinstalling the printer spooler service via your tutorial.
Custom install = Not possible imo as it took for ever to find the drivers and backing up all my documents etc.. won't fit on a a 5GB USB I have
The only I option I can see is doing a repair.
I have a 5GB USB free if that helps.
The problem when I tried doing a repair is when it got to the "transfer programs" part it randomly restarted and did NOTHING. I was like wtf. I tried several times but it kept restarting then.
Could it be that the laptop had reached 100% so stopped charging? It told me to plug in my charger before installing as the installation process said it has to run on AC power. Prehaps it reached 100% when it got to the transfer programs part and the charger stopped charging, could that be possible?
