Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate-64bits installer repair option

Windows 7 Ultimate-64bits installer repair option

Does Windows 7 Ultimate-64bits have an installer repair option, as Vista and XP did? I would like to insert the CD-ROM (full retail version), drill down to Upgrade, and, instead of reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate, click on Repair, but I do not see this option on any branch of the installation procedure. Where is the Repair option found, or is it missing from the Windows 7 CD-ROM?

My machine is mainly working, but autochk at startup fails and there may be hidden problems that need to be fixed. System Restore (possibly corrupt), Startup Repair (inadequate), sfc /snannow (unsuccessful), chkdsk (inadequate), and a System Repair disk (could not make) are not options. I thus need to use the installation CD-ROM or else download something, if I only knew what. I hope to run a repair utility without resorting to a clean install that would wipe out my hard disk. Please enlighten me.

So I need to repair integral Windows files on my install. On XP this was a trivial matter of booting off the XP install disc and selecting the appropriate option.
