If that doesn't work , you can delete the windows.old from a boot disc.

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings showing all columns, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu. Explain what is on each partition to your knowledge.

Well...wierd problem solved...it wasn't Windows...it wasn't anything I was doing was wrong...and I don't believe I screwed anything up...

What it was was a loose connection inside my box that was causing intermittent errors in the DVD drive !!

A couple times in the last year my system wouldn't boot up...and I discovered (aka...remembered) that I Had a similar issue a decade or so ago.

Seems somehow or some reason the cables on the HDD in the case came...or would come....loose. In the original case years and years ago...some forum said that "heat" can cause this from time to time.

Sure enough...I reseated the sata and power cables to the DVD and presto...everything worked fine...no boot errors...and no issues with repair install !!!

Thanks to all that helped on this !!
