    The tutorial below can help show you how to. It includes a link to download a Windows 7 ISO to create a bootable Windows 7 installation DVD or USB with.

    Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

    Before you start, be sure to also make sure that you have your product key number available on the COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop, or under it's battery. Without it, you will not be able to activate the new installation of Windows 7.

    lost music and pictures


    I did the system restore and it all went smoothly. when my laptop started up again,my music and picture folders were there,but when I opened them they had no files. The music file had all the iTunes folder, but all my music and MP3 files are gone. How do I get these back?

    Hello Angel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Since you had system protection turned on, you might see if you may be able to use Previous Versions from these folder locations to recovery your files.
    If that doesn't help, then you might see if the free program Recuva may be able to help recover them.

    Hope this helps, :)

    Maybe you can add the fact that "system restore from recovery environment" doesn't create a "undo restore point".

    system restore is also possible from "safe mode with command prompt": just type: rstrui.exe
    system restore is possible from safe mode. Handy if system doesn't boot normally.

    Hello Ron,

    Thank you, but it's already there as the last item in the red warning box at the top. Is that the same as what you meant?

    No I meant: If you perform a system restore from "recovery environment" it can't be undone. It won't create a "undo restore point"

    Ah, ok. Did you confirm this yourself? I had always thought that you could undo a system restore unless it was done in Safe Mode or Safe Mode w/Command.

    Not 1000% sure, but I had that problem at a client machine a year ago as I can remember.





    System Restore From the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

    If for any reason you cannot boot into Windows, you can try to use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore. In that case you will be doing what is called an "Offline Restore". Note: While in WinRE, System Restore is not able to create an undo restore point prior to any rollback. Therefore, undoing a rollback is not supported from WinRE.
