It depends, If you noticed the "media refreshed" .iso's they are continually updated with the most recent operating system updates.

If you went out to buy one you would have to check and make sure it at least included ServicePack1.

You could install over top, but see my first answer.
Driver backups for specific situations would be handy, but 7 already has enough drivers included that it should get you up and running.

Yes, a clean install would format the drive. Unless by "over top" you mean to do a Repair Install.

If it is that valuable, and it was me, I would have at least 3 copies of it before I did anything to my machine.

Your system specs are incomplete, you're only showing Windows 7 home premium. Do you have a 32bit or 64bit system ???

From the limited amount of information you offer, I can only assume you will need this:
English version, Windows 7 Home Premium x86 SP1 U (media refresh) X17-58996.iso

If you insist on using a 64bit version you will have to run the unlocker mentioned in Step1 of the Clean Install Tutorial, but why waste a 64bit OS if your machine wasn't built with 64bit capabilities? It may run, but it will not run as well.

Windows 7 home premium x64

Someone more paranoid than me. I laughed when I saw that "I would have at least 3 copies of it before I did anything to my machine". That's Windows. I went to see a Tek friend today to talk to him about all these problems I was having and he tells me, "Buy a Mac Randy". I hate when he says that. Obviously he hates Windows, but I would probably be bored with a Mac. By the way, My machine is a x64. When I mentioned the 100gb data partition I didn't want to lose I wasn't talking repair, I was thinking a custom install? By over top I meant right over the Win 7 HP x64 that's installed right now. I would boot to the install disk and choose the custom install, but I think when Greg mentioned it earlier there was an either or there on the matter of the 100MB Reserved partition It all gets so confusing. With a brand new Windows 7 install disk Ultimate or Pro it would come with a reserve partiton right? Not to mention I still have recovery discs from Acer. I will have to think about all this.
