Windows 7 Ultimate x32 With Sp1 + Vista Ultimate x32 with Sp1 & Sp2 !!

Hi All,
SIW 2 : Sir, I did not know DISM++ can do so many things. Thanks for pointing me to that. You have come to his rescue in good time!
bigbobh : Sir, What better it could be : A very senior person is himself on guide. Now you are in safe hands. I would have helped you through the way A to Z as shown by Senior Sir but unfortunately, my mother has broken & dislocated her leg bone today. I don't know when i will be back on SevenForums next. I hope you understand.

All the best!

Thanks & Regards. ...

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
problem with updates after recovery

Once I have backed up the activation code etc using DISM not sure I know how to do it but will try but after that how do I run the iso file that I already downloaded during the 24 hour period it was available I have it on a dvd non bootable. Do I have to make that a bootable or do I simply click on the file iso file to run it? Sorry if I am not getting this very quickly and thank you for your patience.

That is the default title as presented through Heidoc. And yes to the question.
Important part now is to make sure you have your activation key (25 character key)
You can title the DVD in ImgBurn what you wish before you burn it, what you have is fine or you can burn another
To do so:
insert a blank DVD
open ImgBurn
click img to disk
right click the name after Label:
click change
make it what you want

Once I have backed up the activation code etc using DISM not sure I know how to do it
just fire up dism++.

Click Toolkit in left pane. Then you see Active backup in main window. Click It.

Click Backup.

It is stored in the Dism++\ActiveBackup folder . That is why you must then copy the entire dism++ folder somewhere safe before reinstalling

To backup drivers Click drivers in the left pane. Then tick any you want to backup . Then click Export - and browse to folder to export then to. Export into a folder somewhere safe - an external drive/usb stick, because you will need them later.
