C'est la vie, I suppose... or is it more "c'est la guerre"? <heheh> In retrospect, I should "sail a boat" and stay out of the Operating System!

In any case, thanks for your insights, folks.

windows 7 64bit
 
 

Hello

I m trying to do a repair install on my windows 7 64bit cause for some reason i cannot even enter windows.
I m getting a bsod error "Stop: 0x000000F4" right after windows welcome logo screen comes up.

So i m trying to do a rpair install but it doesnt let me do so when booting from the DVD. A message appears saying that i have to start windows normally and then choose upgrade from the DVD!

What else can i do now?

You may end up having to do a clean install..

Was directed to this thread earlier today. I followed the steps, but there were a few differences.
I have Win 7 Ultimate, the Upgrade asked me for 12.2 GB free (on a drive i only has 20 GB total ) Anywayz, when it was complete, literally nothing changed, still had my Welcome Screen pic, saved custom themes, every app functioned properly, even some of the default services I disabled weren't re-enabled. I also still had all of my settings, drivers and so on (which, of course, was a good thing)
I did see some improvement, such as less CPU usage, but my main problem wasn't fixed (some DirectX thing)

Glad to know i'll have this option to utilize in the future, but after deleting practically everythig I installed just to do the Upgrade/Repair, I may as well go do another clean installation.
Thanks though.

This guide won't work in my case. I can't it because the reason that I need to do a repair install is that none of my USB devices work (ie: I can't log in because of a lack of a keyboard). It doesn't matter what port I use or what device I use, it doesn't work.

I got in this situation because I was having trouble with iTunes not restoring my ipod. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the USB host controller. Apparently, it didn't reinstall and when I rebooted, I couldn't log in. Safe mode doesn't work either. I have tried a system restore but for some reason I only have one saved and it is after the damage was done. I really don't want to have to reinstall. I have a backup of my files, but I just hate doing through the process of installing all of my programs. If I insert the Windows 7 DVD and boot from it, the mouse and keyboard work. Can I do a repair install by booting from the disk or do I have to be logged in?

You will need to be logged in to Windows to do a repair install.

Is there any way I can load the driver from the Windows 7 DVD?

There is no driver. You are simply upgrading your current installation, which requires Windows to be running.
