Hello.

I was told that if I had a Windows 7 Operating System installed, that I could "Reinstall" the system from creating an ISO, and I was sure I saw it listed in here somewhere. I have (or had) a Genuine version installed, but no disks, the system was corrupted so I attempted a sfc /scannow, and was told there were many errors that could not be fixed. Do I need to find another way to reinstall this system, but I am sure I noticed links in this forum area. Sorry if I am wrong, but my system did read Windows 7.1 Home Premium.

Thanks for any help.

Hello again.

I was not sure how to edit this, but I have looked at the sticker and it says it is a Genuine Windows 7 and I have now found it was a Professional install, not Home Premium like I listed above. My friends say that I will need to install drivers and other updates as it seems that this computer has not been used for a while, and this may be why I am getting all of the errors. I do have the Windows Key number, so it is mine, but is there a fresh install that I can use from a Genuine Site ?

Thank  You.

Hello again,
I found my answer, as it looks like more older corrupted Windows Updates that were not needed?
Once I removed these the original sfc /scannow problems do not exist.

To get right to the answer, Go to Page #3 , Post #28 by AddRAM

This may also help the other person with sfc /scannow errors if they are similar. Could be worth checking.

As I am having a few minor problems with this computer there any System Check Tool for upgrading to Windows 10, or do I just click and run the KB item that is being mentioned to check if this system is OK? I wanted to check if I can install Windows 10 later, but I was also reading your forum area first, that claims a few minor problems with going from Windows 7.1 up to Windows 10.

Thanks for any help.

I had Windows 7 on my computer but haven't found that "Reinstall" thing on it. Well, I never reinstalled it even once since I've got it.

The requirements for windows 10 are quite "ordinary",,,basically if the pc will run windows7 in a reasonable manner, it should have no problem with Win 10

 

The kb in question (afaik) is KB2919355

Hello malynensi
I said that I no longer needed to reinstall and the problems were due to several Microsoft Downloads that left corruptions on your Windows 7.1 system, and I left the solution there also.
The reinstall versions that I was looking for were the ones from Digital River, but I have now found, they seem to have been removed. So this is why I was asking for a System Check Tool for upgrading to Windows 10 as I have this item in my task bar that I have been told will update the computer, but I just wondered if there was another Tool to check with first, rather than having problems by skipping over Windows 8 and going to Windows 10.
Thanks Condobloke I will try that one
