In addition, yes, you could extract either ISO (with or without SP1 included) to D: if you like, then run the setup.exe file to start the repair installation.
Thanks Brink!

No need to edit the tutorial.

If you have Windows 7 without SP1 installed on the computer, then you could use either ISO (with or without SP1) to do the repair install with. It's just preferred to use the ISO version with the latest included in it.

What you said here is very clear. The first post wasn't which is why I ended up asking the question and suggested the edit as the next person to come along will have to sift through 144 pages to find your last post.

I am just trying to help make this thread even more useful by suggesting a 'tweak' to the original post that would save another user what I had to deal with.
You respond VERY quickly - Thank you. But if you are not around . . . .

It was just a thought. I was just trying to give back a little, and I think it would be of value to simply add the above quote.

Thanks again, and wish me luck. Hopefully this solves the problem for me.

Hi Brink. FYI it didn't like the iso with SP1.
It told me to stop, do a windows update and install sp1 before trying this again. Ironically that was the whole reason I was doing this (sp1 would repeatedly try to install and fail).
Now using the ISO without and so far seems to be running ok.

Hello Nightdash,

Not normally, but I would always recommend to back up anything that you do not want to lose to be safe. If you lost power while doing a repair install, you could lose everything.
