    thnx Medico. I stil don't understand why the search function wouldn't bring up that article. I did many searches using terms in the title and body of that article, but no results were returned each time.
    Ex.: Langa reinstall win7 = no results.
    ?????

    There may be a temp. problem with the search function in the Newsletter (I could not find it on that route either). I searched through the Lounge to find it in the WS Newsletter Forum.

    To all,

    I'm adding this note to several threads, because I don't feel it's been adequately discussed:

    For a successful reinstall, one needs to ensure that
    a.) All libraries (reparse points) are pointing to the original locations on the C: drive, and
    b.)The C: drive must have free space equal to the Windows partition size + 9 MB.
