But, you said only "Click here => Reinstall Microsoft Windows and follow the instructions." with no warnings about possible consequences.

The OP expressed newbie-ness so it seems to me my comment was appropriate.

Does being a newbie stop the OP from reading instructions which details the method, implications, and solution then?

maxseven,
I don't know if you have been following the posts on WU or elsewhere. I don't recognize your username, therefore, I assume you haven't been posting, or posting on WU for quite some time.
You seem to have a problem with everything we are trying to help with.
You incorrectly addressed me in my post.
Do you have any training with Windows Update? NO!

Paul, as usual, is right on/correct.
Additionally, FR Disks are mostly used to access a computer that won't work, i.e. boot to the OS or other problem that factorr reset won't work from within Windows, by that I mean while you are using the computer and the Recovery Partition remain unaccesable.
Win7 Repair Install, work similarly, you run setup.exe from within Windows, choose upgrade and it In Place Upgrades windows 7 to Windows 7 without all the problems you had!

What I try to do here on the Forum is get OPs Win7 machine running correctly, not just forcing an update to install.
Why, it will fail again because underlying issues were not addressed and corrected, and usually there are. Especially so when the OPs lack of maintenance or waiting until everything comes to a screeching halt. Corrupt/missing files in the hundreds or considerably more.
I have a repository of well over 1/2 million Windows files, Win7, 8, 8.1, 10. See my tools in Footer.

Never did like Band-Aide repairs, other than to get to to where you can repair it correctly.

Obviously it does, because it is a constant issue!

Thank you all for your reply, especially Paul Black. It took me a while to come back because, following your suggestions, I was busy back upping my computer. It's now fully backed up, including a system image. Also, I'm writing this before reading your follow up comment because I don't want to postpone my reply any longer and after a quick glance at your follow up, I think I can consider the stage where I am now, to be after that too (except Megahertz07 and Snick may have given me further leads). Nonetheless, after posting this I will go back and follow your second comment, as well as the others, in detail so don't rush to reply.

Re option [2], I tried getting it from the link above but it wasn't available either. I contacted Dell but again they said even if I did renew my warrant, the recovery image would not be recoverable..

Meanwhile, I found another copy of win 7 64 on an external HD and remembered that I had given my pc into a clinic a few years ago and the guy had changed my pc's HD (hence Dell didn't have mine anymore?) and he'd given me this external HD as a restoration of all my files before my computer had gone bust so perhaps he'd also left me a copy of the windows 7 he reinstalled (or the previous win 7 I had on my pc?), and this is it. But, when I tried using for my repair install by following the instructions here, Repair Install, specifically number 4, and hit the setup.exe it gave me the errors as shown in the first two attachments below. (Maybe it's to do with me not having created a partition first and attempting to install it on the same drive that my current windows is installed - something which I do not know yet how to do)

As an aside, maybe worth mentioning that when I realised that my current Windows may not be the original win 7 that I bought together with my computer, I went to check my product key in control panel>system and security >system and it was indeed different than the one on the label stuck on the back of my machine. My current one is of, 20 characters long, instead of 25 and contains OEM in the middle of it. Still, after installing Magical Jelly bean, the cd key WAS the same as on the label.

Regardless, please see my third attachment, which shows a screenshot of my Disk Management.

Many thanks for your help,
Nickk

Thank you for your post. I have a question, do I need to execute that setup.exe only on a separate partition that the one I have my current windows installed on? That is, if I have a C:\ drive only, do I need to first do this -> Partition or Volume - Create New Number 4. here, shows that I need to -> Repair Install

You have two options . . .

Option 1

[1] Insert the DVD/USB and boot the computer. When AutoPlay appears, double-click Run setup.exe.
[2] When you get to the installation screen, select In Place Upgrade [Repair Install].

Option 2

[1] Create a folder on the Desktop, something like Clean_Inst.
[2] Copy the ISO [DVD or USB] files into it.
[3] Unzip the ISO using something like 7-Zip => 7-Zip.
[4] Find and double-click the Setup.exe file [follow the prompts].
[5] When you get to the installation screen, select In Place Upgrade [Repair Install].

I hope this helps!

Nope, I'm getting the following error. Btw, I got a similar error when I tried upgrading straight to Windows 10 with the Media Creation Tool. I assume the next step is to attempt a clean install? If I could only know why I'm getting this error?

You guys are super helpful!
