I did give him a direct download link [adguard] yesterday for the Win 7 x64-bit ISO he needed, but he didn't download it and it has now expired! I have just deleted the link as it is now invalid.

is there a way of forcing it to go to the DVD that was made last year when every thing was okay?
thanks guys

Hi Rick33,

Right, none of the disks have worked, trying to recover the OS hasn't worked, trying to run repair install hasn't worked, if fact nothing has worked. Seeing you tried more that one disk, it probably isn't the disks, it could be a corrupted recovery partition. If this is the case, then there is NO way you are going to be able to restore the OS from that. If it isn't then it is something else!

The amount of time that has been spent on this [by BOTH of us], you could have created a new installation/repair DVD. Then you could have either repaired the OS, OR, clean installed the OS from the DVD, done all the updates, configured your system the way you like it, and, made a system image so that this sort of thing wouldn't be an issue in the future.

I gave you the direct download link for Win 7 SP1 Home Premium x64 bit yesterday and told you that it was valid for 24 hours. That link has since expired and been deleted. This is exactly the same as what SIW2 has stated that you require below.

You can get the SP1 installation media using

https://www.heidoc.net/php/Windows%20ISO%20Downloader.exe

The installation media comes as an .iso file. It can burned to dvd using an isoburner, or extracted to usb using rufus, or similar.
SIW2 has told you how to do get your system up and running again, the same as I have numerous times.

Is there any reason that you are not doing what is being suggested!

You should have said which parts you didn't understand and I could have clarified them for you!

Are you saying that you have downloaded the ISO and burnt it to a DVD ready to boot from?

You don't need to worry about that until you have a fully updated and working OS.
It is basically an exact copy of your OS on the HDD. It makes restoring your OS quick and simple.

"Are you saying that you have downloaded the ISO and burnt it to a DVD ready to boot from?"

the exe file is still on the thumb drive. i can copy it to a DVD, is that burning?
thanks

EDIT the file is called a downloader. does that mean i have to connect to the internet to use the file?

You need to run the Heidoc exe file, then put a dot next to windows 7 - that tells it you want to download windows 7 media.

Next you select the EDITION in the drop down, then click CONFIRM.

Next you select the LANGUAGE in the drop down, then click CONFIRM

Next you click the one you want to download

Do you know what, I did think that myself!

If you look back at what I have recommended and suggested, and the amount of times I have said the same thing, I was wondering if I was talking and typing in a different language!
