@Hopalong X: Great idea and instructions, but the service pack is not there. Thanks for the suggestion.

If I do a repair install, will I lose everything? What effect will it have on my system?

Here is the tutorial for repair install.
Repair Install

As you can see early in the tutorial. I added the red lettering. Everything is saved.

Quote:
This will show you how to do a repair install (aka: in-place upgrade install) to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers.

Quote:

Do a Repair installation if:
  • A System Restore did not help fix your Windows 7.
  • There is no other easier option left that can fix your Windows 7.
  • You DO NOT want to do a Clean reinstall of Windows 7.
  • You DO want to preserve your user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers.
Before repair install.

Also one more possibility. To the left of my yellow circle at top. Click the "Troubleshoot problems with installing updates."
It is a Wizard type window with choices to follow. Follow prompts.
If one set of choices doesn't work retry with new ones possibly will. Usually by third try your running on hope.

I have a few questions:

Looking at the guide, if I were to slipstream SP1 into my original Windows 7 DVD, I should be able to do a repair install with SP1 already included?

I have the 'My Documents' folder including My Music, My Videos, and so forth moved to my physical D: drive, and everything points there. Will the repair install break this?

Since I upgraded from Windows Vista, and the issue is possibly Vista files related, will the repair install fix the files that are causing errors? sfc /scannow found no integrity issues and performed no repairs. There were no errors at all. My Windows 7 is Vanilla, no user modifications to files. Normal tweaks.

I have no idea on the slipstream.

I've never tried it on anything so I won't pretend I know anything.

There is a tutorial for it.
Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

One other thing I forgot is to reset Win Update. May help.
Here is the tutorial.

I slipstreamed SP1 and am in the process of a repair install with the slipstreamed disc. It is taking a LONG time, so I am afraid it is moving My Documents, Movies, Music Etc. back to the default C: drive location. Oh well, SP1 will already be installed so it is worth tweaking Windows 7 again.

Glad you seem to have everything under control.

Let us know if all is successful.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

5 hours so far. On the last step, "Transferring files, settings and programs (72%)". I think it may be transferring my music and videos back to the D: drive. I hope so at any rate.

I love my little Netbook, but I really wanted to play DDO while my wife was at work...

Did you start this from in Windows?

Mine tells me that I cannot do it unless I have SP1 installed!

This is what you need to read and follow for slipstreaming the iso file.
