I have been preparing myself for this ever since the Windows Media
Center fiasco... I appreciate all the attempts to recover.. I've been running with the RTM build from MSDN. Guess I'll wait for the 22nd
release and install that one.. Thanks for all your help and patient.

In Step 12, you say to uncheck the Automatically activate Windows when I'm online box. I was curious if I should check or not check this box, or perhaps, since my Windows 7 is already activated, that will not appear.
Oh, ok. Yes, it will still appear during installation, and you will need to activate again after the install as well.
I recommend to always leave that box unchecked, so instead of Windows 7 trying to automatically activate in 3-days, you can have 30 days by default to activate manually in case you wanted or needed to activate later than 3 days. That's all.
This is great what if you cannot boot into Win 7 in the first place? Then how do you do a "repair"?
In XP, you can boot up from your XP disc, go thru the various prompts and eventually select "repair install". Is this possible with Win &?
