Need help Finding Windows 7 SP1 installation Disk

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What I am trying to do, is follow the SSD optimization guide. And do a Windows 7 Repair Install. but the problem is I have Windows 7 SP1, and It wont allow me to uninstall it, I dont want to do a restore to a earlier date before sp1 was installed because i will lose a crap ton of stuff I dont want to lose. So i was wondering does ANYONE know where I could possibly get a Windows 7 SP1 Installation disk?? that would be friggin awesome. This message board rocks i hope soemone can help me out.

thanks in advance.

Why do you need to do a repair install and what is a repair install? Are you talking about doing an upgrade but you want everything thrown into the windows.old folder? Why dont you just back everything up and reinstall? Also, you can set up your own install disk if you have an external hdd with microsoft deployment toolkit.

Do you have a Windows 7 SP0 install disc? If so, download the full installer for SP1 and slipstream it into your SP0 disc. Bam, there's your SP1 install disc.

If you trying to uninstall windows you have to boot from the cd to uninstall windows. Windows wont alow you to delete itself for safety reasons. so go into your bios and set boot device to cd and then save your bios setting. Reboot and it will load the cd. Make sure the cd is in the dvd drive xD
