It was simple in XP,I assumed it would be with 7 ...
So, I assumed I could boot from the Win7 disk, and either have a repair install option, or start the install and have it say, "Hey, you already have win7. Would you like to repair it?"
Nope. And from what I read it looks like you have to be able to boot into Windows to do a repair, which makes no sense to me.
right now, I just replaced my AMD Athlon 64 X2 with a Core i5 2500k, and of course, windows won't load. But now I can't get a repair install to run! Please help - I don't want to format my drive!!!!!
