Hello pspz,

Open the folders below in your Windows 7 installation disc to open and read the license.rtf file. It will let you know what you have.

sources\license\en-us\_default\ultimate\license.rtf

Example at top of that file if it's with SP1:

Quote:

Would I follow these steps if I'm getting crashes/BSOD/unexpected shut downs? and why in your steps do you select "compatible with windows vista?" when your actually only dealing with reinstalling windows 7 to repair it? is that just a 'work-around' to make it happen? I have installed win 7 myself once 2 years ago btw. 64 bit win 7 professional with outlook 2007 as well.

thx so much, in advance

Hello RW,

Yep, that is just a workaround to be able to do the repair install when you do not have a Windows 7 with SP1 installation disc, but have a Windows 7 SP1 installation.

For now, I would recommend to create a new thread about your crashes/BSOD/unexpected shut downs issues in the Crashes and Debugging forum area to see if we may be able to sort it first. Be sure to look at the link below to help show you what to include in your post there in order to help give you the best possible help with it.

I followed your steps to see if i have SP1 and it doesn't say i do. I installed win 7 myself with disc. Would i still follow these steps to repair my windows or not?

I have no clue how to find errors in my system, but thanks. when blue screen came up, i barely saw it, and other times when i booted up, it had a message like " system shut down unexpectedly..." so i wouldn't know how to find error to follow up on it.

Well, go ahead and post it there with any details you can provide, and see if you may be able to include what's at the link below in your post as well. With all of this, they may be able to determine what it wrong and help walk you through fixing it. Otherwise, you may be doing a clean install.

At least this way we can have a crack at trying to get it fixed for you there.
