    Win7 no-reformat, nondestructive reinstall

    I'm having a problem that I'm not being able to handle without help.
    I have a Win7 Home Premium (32bits) installation that is in bad need of a no-reformat, nondestructive reinstall.
    My original and legal copy of Win7 came without the Service Pack 1, which was later added on a routine update.
    So, according to the splendid Fred Langa's article "no-reformat, nondestructive reinstall" I need to remove Service Pack 1 from the system before proceeding.
    Besides, the SP1 doesn't appears on the Control Panel to be uninstalled.
    How can I remove Win7 SP1 from my system, in order proceed with the no-reformat, nondestructive reinstall?
    I appreciate for any given help.

    Both me and my Windows edition speak brazilian portuguese.

    Have you not received those install disks yet that included SP 1 ?

    I can send you some more if you wish.

    SP 1 will be in Installed Updates as KB976932 which you could try to uninstall by right clicking on it and select Uninstall, but some have had problems trying to uninstall the update.
