    Windows 7 SP1 blocking nondestructive reinstall


    By Fred Langa

    Plus: Confusing results from Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool and solving Win10 image-backup problems.

    On the Nondestructive Reinstall of Win7 SP1, would it not be worth the time to make a slipstream version of Win7 SP1 and try a nondestructive reinstall that way?

    I did this for XP and Win7 to maintain our office computers more easily.

    I downloaded an Win7 SP1 slipstream ISO from Microsoft, I've used it several times since to rebuild 'broken' Win 7 systems.
