Windows 7: Repair Install

Does it matter that I partitioned my disk? I think (from some comments in this tutorial) some people've had trouble with it.

Also, would I have to reset my internet connection? I hate going through all that, because something will inevitably go wrong.

Nope, it doesn't matter. Whatever partition Windows is installed on will be repaired.

Hello Elsuirad, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you are still using a RC build of Windows 7, then you will need to purchase a retail copy of Windows 7 very soon. The RC builds will expire on June 1st and will no longer work afterwards.

Reminder: Windows 7 RC will expire Effective June 1, 2010.

Can I do a repair install by booting my system up to my installation disc rather then opening it inside of Windows? Because I can't open my installation disc in Windows because my system is pretty messed up right now.

No, sorry, the repair install can only be done from within windows.

You could do a custom install instead. It's a clean install, only you don't format.

I got directed to this page for a solution to error 80072EFD. Does anyone know if this will fix my problem? And also, this solution doesn't delete any of my music or anything, does it?

Repair Install won't touch music files at all. It affects only Windows files and maybe a few settings.
