You need to use the Windows disk, and not a Recovery disk - see the instructions here...
Repair Install

Thanks for the swift reply Noel, I am using the Windows disc. Or at least a clone of it. You see I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise x64, I used a spare license. So the disc I have is a full clone of Windows 7 Enterprise I use for if I ever need to re-install. So not a recovery disc to my understanding?

On that list though of ISOs, there is no Enterprise version listed? It mentions downloading a trial version? I could do that but isn't that insinuating I want to use it to install the Windows Enterprise trial?

You should be able to do the repair install using one of the downloads available (preferably Pro or Ultimate) - if you remove the ei.cfg file from the download first. This allows any version of win7 to be installed from the same disk.

Sp long as you choose the Enterprise option when offered, it should work

Sorry Noel, been away for a week so just getting back on this now. This isn't going to delete any of my files is it? It's been a while so I can't remember how Windows.old works, does it keep your old desktop and files in there?

A Repair install doesn't create a Windows.old file - it overwrites the windows files keeping most settings and all user files intact.

As always, a backup is a good idea before you start!

So whereas the instructions say Upgrade, I want to avoid that and head straight for recovery options?

Edit: It doesn't list Enterprise Do you know what else I can do?

Oh heck - I thought Enterprise was one of the available options
In that case, all I can think of is to see if you can find someone with an Enterprise disk and try borrowing it or copying it.
The only other option would be a clean install using an alternative license.
