Hello. I have a question that I have seen posted by Microsoft MVPs and computer experts on how to do a "Windows Vista Upgrade/Repair Install". One of many websites that states this can be done:
http://vistasupport.mvps.org/repair_a_vist...e_vista_dvd.htm
 
Yes, read the first two paragraphs at the top. Yes, it is important to what I have to say. Let me add to John's statement that if you remove the SP1 add-on from the Windows Vista SP1 you already have on system (bringing it back to Windows Vista SP0 -- the original release of Windows Vista), and attempt to do a Windows Vista Upgrade/Repair Install with your original Windows Vista SP0 installation disc, the "Upgrade" option during the installation process is TOO grayed-out... ...and you CANNOT do a Windows Vista Upgrade/Repair Install EITHER! 
 
So, how exactly do you do a "Windows Vista Upgrade/Repair Install"????? ...cannot seem to get the "Upgrade" option to be active in order to repair Windows Vista operating system?!?!? ...ANYWAY AROUND THIS??????????????? Please reply.
 

Thanks!
