Am I missing something? You are seeing the images, right?

Or are they only showing up on my end?

I'm confused.

I'll again attach the image directly to this post, so if you cannot see it, please let me know.

You have a 15G unallocated space. It was probably created during the image restoration. It doesn't make any difference on a repair install.
Under Windows, run setup from Win 7 installation disk (on a DVD or on a USB flash disk)
Did you do a check disk (chkdsk c: /f)?
Don't forget to disable antivirus.

I know for a fact that it was there before that point, hence why I brought it up. The fact that it didn't vanish when I restored the image surprised me, as I obviously didn't back that empty partition up.

But if it has no bearing on the repair install, then I'm not going to worry about it.

Code:
C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk c: /f
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
I'm going to give it the go-ahead to do that, but I'm not sure if it records that check, and (if it does) where I would be able to find it after it is generated.

Do you know where it would store it (if it stores it)?

C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk c: /f >c:\logs\chkdskReport.txt
is one way to generate a text file in any designated directory.

I have the results attached to this post as an attachment.

I need to go to bed for the night, though, so I will check back on this thread in the morning.

You can run CHKDSK_Extract_The_WININIT_Run_Data_Log.bat from here => BATCH PROGRAMS [Standalone] and then upload the results using the tutorial at the bottom of the above link [Upload to SevenForums . . .] and someone will look at it for you.

There is further information in Post #1.

I hope this helps!

Good news. Windows has checked the file system and found no problems.
Try again to do the repair install.

Alright. I'll check back after I try again.

I'm expecting the same result as previously, though. Hopefully it will work properly this time, though.

The same thing happened as before, so I had to restore the full disk image again.

However, I took out a pencil and a notebook, and took some notes of what happened so that there is no confusion as to what is taking place.

This is what transpired:

First, I inserted the USB drive (which, again, was burnt with the official Digital River ISO that Microsoft provided for the exact same version of Windows 7 that I am running).

Then, I ran setup.exe on the drive.

I clicked "Install now". It then said that it was copying temporary files. Then it said "Setup is starting". Then I clicked the first option ("Go online to get the latest updates for installation").

It searched for, and then downloaded, installation updates. It then said "Installation is restarting".

It did, and I accepted the licence terms.

I clicked the first option, "Upgrade". It looked for compatibility issues.

The only thing of any concern that it found was that there could possibly be some problems with the "ATI Catalyst Install Manager" (that has to do with the video cards and the like that are a part of my computer, and that program has been on this computer from the get-go. Furthermore, I cannot uninstall it by itself. The only way that it would let me uninstall it would be by also removing all ATI components as well. I think that I probably ought not to uninstall it, in any case, unless someone knows whether or not uninstalling it would cause me problems. Again, it can't be uninstalled by itself. It has to uninstall all ATI components on my computer as well.)

It found this the first time that I attempted the repair install, too, by the way. Anyway, it nevertheless said that the program could be successfully reinstalled afterwards. I couldn't find the exact same version of the program for download on the Web, but I found another version of the same program that could be. I bookmarked it, but didn't do anything regarding it (as, again, I can't uninstall "ATI Catalyst Install Manager" without uninstalling everything that has to do with ATI).

In any case, I allowed the process to proceed (without installing the thing that I probably ought not to uninstall).

Everything went smoothly through the following steps after that point:

* "Copying Windows files"

* "Gathering files, settings, and programs"

* "Expanding Windows files"

* "Installing features and updates"

After it finished those steps, it rebooted, and continued the process with the next step "Transferring files, settings, and programs".

But then, at 72% of the way through that step (the exact same percentage as last time), it didn't go up any more percentage points. It stayed saying, indefinitely, that it had transferred "898275 of 898518". It never moved forward to "898276".

Even after a very long time, it never moved past that point. So I had to shut down the computer, and restore the full system image once again, which took over an hour.
