My system looks different post WinPE usb (bootable from iso provided by Snick) There was no G:System Reserved before! This thing ran off a usb stick. Did something overwrite my actual System Reserved partition? now I have to look into that. Appreciate any suggestions Paul:

Snick, if you don't help me resolve this I'm going to have to appeal to a moderator.

You verified the current installed OS is 64bit, it appears you verified your repair install as x86/winPE as x86, which is 32bit. Until you locate or create a 64bit repair install/winPE -- nobody, neither Paul or Snick or anyone else, can help. If you appeal to moderator staff, I will appeal amicus curiae, not to oppose anyone, rather to support Snick (and Paul if need be).

Let's all smile, breathe, breathe again; now if your windows dvd was not yet polled by dism command-line, make sure dism will be "aimed" at the windows dvd, do the command-line, report the findings of that windows dvd.

Hi Cittizin7,

So we now know that the INSTALLED OS is 64-bit and the DVD/ISO that you are trying to use is 32-bit!

[1] As far as I know, Cyberpower computers come with a pre-installed key [embedded].
[2] Is there a 25 alphanumeric key for win 7 on the side of the desktop?
[3] Was the OS originally Win 10?
[4] Have you re-installed the OS at some stage with Win 7?
[5] Have you contacted Cyberpower and asked them for a DVD [there may be a small fee payable]?

[6] You might have a recovery partition [reset to factory] . . .

Post a screenshot of the Disk Management => Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image.
Pay special attention to Step 5.

[7] If you re-installed Win 7 from a DVD/ISO, then you obviously activated it, you can retrieve your Product Key using either Belarc Advisor or Magic Jelly Bean. Using Magic Jelly Bean, it is the CD Key that you want, NOT the Product ID.

I hope this helps!

Hi Cittizin7,

I have just written the following batch script that will be useful for members that are going to either perform a clean or repair install. The data produced will help the members helping them by having the correct information!

Please download and run => Required_Clean_And_Repair_Install_Data.bat, and then upload the Clean_Repair.txt desktop file that is created.

I hope this helps!
