    Non Destruction Re Installation

    Capture.JPG
    I decided to do a non destructive re installation of Windows 7. Step 1 to remove SP1. Ok so I located that, clicked on it but Unistall does not show up. If I highlight any other, the uninstall shows up.
    HELP!

    Instead of removing SP 1, why not download the Windows 7 SP1 iso, burn it to a DVD and repair install from that?

    John, I have read that others have used the iso file Jerry mentions to successfully do what you would like to try, using your original key.
