In that case, it still looks like you will be unable to do a repair install, and will most likely will only be able to do a clean install instead.

Hi Brink and friends,

i have retail version of Win7 disc without SP1. But after some time, Windows Update had SP1 installed in my machine. Can i still use my retail disc (without SP1) to repair? I don't mind updating the SP1 via Windows Update again (once it's repaired) as long as i don't have to download the whole Win7 SP1 ISO.

Hello Valmighty,

I'm afraid not. You'll need to use the latest ISO that includes SP1. The ISO needs to be the same as what you currently have installed to be able to do a repair install with.

So even if i got the SP1 by Windows Update, i have to use the full version ISO that already has SP1?

Sounds good. Thank you, Brink.
