Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

I am now officially out of ideas

The only option I know of now is a repair install.

Download the SP1 Refresh for your language and edition from the links on these pages...

Heidoc - Microsoft DR Download links

The links are for downloads from the Digital River servers run for MS, so are about as safe as you can get :)

Follow the instructions in this tutorial -
- and they should help you get through it (it's not as difficult as it looks!)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Those files will get me through not having any of the media that originally came with the computer? (driver disks/windows)

The download is the full ISO for Windows if you follow the instructions, then you shouldn't need anything else, and all programs will remain installed and your data should be safe (but back up to external storage first) - some settings will be lost (background picture, etc).
Most drivers will be picked up during the process and shouldn't need to be reinstalled.
