I tried using the information in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971760/

I have the windows.old folder on my HD, everything intact, but when I try to do ANY of those commands, it tells me the files cannot be found. I can't rename the Windows 7 files either. ;_; I seriously might cry if I can't revert back to my old installation.

Did you move the Windows.Old folder from where it was originally created?
