Ok, it's a "retail" OEM copy, and not a factory recovery/restore OEM type then.

Sure, you can manually delete the files listed in step 18 if you like. I'm not sure why they are not showing in Disk Cleanup though. Did you click on the Clean up system files button in Disk Cleanup?

Hello Akwardlkw, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A repair install will not affect installed programs, but you may or may not need to reinstall some drivers. You will only be able to do a repair install from within Windows 7 and not at boot.

Be sure to read all of the information and warnings at the top of the tutorial first.

It must be the exact same edition and version as you have installed or it will not work.

The red warning box at the top of the tutorial can give more details on this though.

Actually... I'm curious about this also. I know that our own home made slipstreams are no good, but does the Digital River version with SP1 integrated work?
