    Okay, so I fixed it, here are the steps I used.

    1. I installed a program called Daemon tools, it basically emulates a DVD Drive. Download: http://www.daemon-tools.cc/downloads

    2. Got the Windows 7 Home Premium ISO.

    3. Unpacked the ISO with Daemon Tools.

    4. Ran the setup.exe

    5. Followed the instructions from the "repair install" thread, given to me by NoelDP


    Noel and Golden, Thank you for helping me solve these issues. I now feel obligated and my help others with there issues.

    Well done with the fix - I would suggest however that yu uninstall Daemon Tools now that it's done its job, as some versions are known to cause problems with Win7 - and you really don't want this hassle all over again! :) (which exact version did you install, from where?)

    Thanks for letting us know, also - it will undoubtedly help others in the future.

    Version of Daemon Tools: 13.37 (I know, so "leet", right)
