Windows 7: Repair Install

Hello Stasioau,

Thank you for your kind words.

All retail copies of Windows 7 come with a 32-bit and 64-bit installation DVD. You might double check to make sure which one you have installed and which installation DVD you are using. It's not hard to overlook this and get them mixed up by mistake.

System Type - 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64)

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I check it number of times and I am sure using x64. In System I have x64 too.

Stasioau,

I'm afraid that I'm not sure why it thinks that you are trying to upgrade like this then. It looks like you may only be able to do a clean install instead.

Thanks Brink, I'm in the process of Repairing Windows 7 now. However, I have some helpful information, if you have iTunes installed, you will need to uninstall iTunes or deactivate iTunes before you begin the repair process.

Hello Edster,

Thank you. What did it do to you with iTunes still installed?

Yes, I would like to know what happens also, if you do not remove itunes before a repair install, I am going to have to do a repair install and have itunes on my system.
Thanks for your input.

Hey Brink, basically it just gave an error about iTunes, suggesting to deactivate iTunes account or to uninstall, and it would terminate the repair install.

I did receive more information about this:

Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:

These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)
iTunes (Please deauthorize computer prior to upgrade)

Um, hopefully iTunes will come out with a updated version of their program that will resolve this soon.

Repair install fails

My "Repair Install" fails between step 9 & 10, and sends me back to the beginning telling me to update first. There is nothing new at the updates. It's and endless cycle of frustration.

SFwriter,

Do you have the screen at step 5 to select the Go online to get the latest updates for installation option?
