Thanks for the update.

I don't understand why it's taking so long - is this with the Dell disk or the one you created ?

I think mine got to about 74% of the last phase before I got the error I did and that was only after 2hrs.

However, all you can do is wait.

When I did a trial repair install on my Win 7 Home Premium a couple of days ago, I got an error message about a missing file and the repair install wouldn't start, although I can't remember which file it was.

I resolved this by creating another Win 7 install disk which went onto to perform the repair install until I got the error message about there being insufficient space.

This relates to the size of the System Reserved Partition, although that was 400MB - C: has 171GB free.

That machine is now in a repair shop where I've asked for that partition to be increased and I'll try it again when I get it back.

The procedure shouldn't be taking as long as that but because it is still working, you will need to wait until it completes or rolls back, but I would suggest that whatever happens, you try to download the ISO again to create another install disk and perform the repair install again.

That .DLL as far as I know is for VMware network library - whatever that is but as it appeared as soon as you started the repair install, then I have to assume it should have been included in the ISO - but not sure on that.

It may have something to do with what you already have installed but the ISO doesn't have it.

Check to see what you have when the repair install completes or rolls back.

I've checked the size of my Win 7 x64 ISO and that is the same size as yours.

Hi Tom,

It has been going since yesterday.  Earlier this morning it was on stage 2 and 49% done.  Now it is at 53% done.  So, I have adjusted to the idea that it will not be done until tomorrow.  That is good as long as things get fixed.

I did what you said:  Went to the disc and opened the setup.  There was one odd message near the start about a DLL.  See attachment.

No, I and Win 7 Ultimate 64b.

I've removed your other post as it was a duplicate of this one.

Can you check to see if you have any restore points prior to running the repair program you can use ?

They would probably be better but open the repair program and under Backup Tools click on Restore under Registry Backup.

Click on Registry Restore then use the dropdown to select the date stamped back up then hit Restore Now and then see if your files are accessible

I ran tweaking last night and left it to tum itself off . When I woke this morning none of my art would open in windows viewer. I tries to add jpg, jpeg and png to it, but it still isn't working. Any help would be bragefully received.

Is your system a 32 bit ?

When you boot up with install media, it doesn't always see your system as being in C: - nothing to worry about there.

Go Start - Computer - insert the Dell disk and click on Setup.exe when AutoPlay opens and see if it performs the repair install.

You could of course try downloading the ISO from MS again but save it to your Downloads folder so the Burner Tool will be able to find it.

Okay then.

Were you always connected to the Internet for the first download ?

Win 7 x64 Home Premium SP1 ISO is about 3.09GB - what is the size of the second ISO you downloaded ?

Go Start - Computer - insert that disk then when AutoPlay opens, click on Setup.exe to see if it will proceed with the repair install.

When you run more than one antivirus program, it can cause anomalous problems but neither should have been loaded in Safe Mode.

You could uninstall all three and just rely on Windows Firewall while you test your restore points.
