Windows 7: Reinstalling W7 On Dual Boot System

Yes, it does clarify things. Now I know why I was not able to do this all those times I tried to use a repair disc or the original install CD to fix W7, when it would not boot. All I would get is "Repair cannot fix this problem" or some such. I ended up having to do clean installs on those occasions. I did not know that you could only do the repair/reinstall option with W7 booted. And now I know that the repair option is the same as what I think of as the in-place or non-destructive reinstall.
