    Thats your choice.

    I agree with HK. Is your choice as we certainly can't make any assurances or guarantees

    And while there's really just a rather small chance of things go wrong during a repair install, i'd also add and say it's still, at best, a 50/50 chance the repair install will fix your problem in which case you're STILL faced with a backup so you can then do a FULL reinstall.

    Also note, if you did things like creating backup images of your hard drive you'd also have the ability with problems, like you have now, where you could reinstall a good recent backup image and then simply restore your personal data over that


    And @HK
    LOL both in sympathy AND empathy (as i've been there and done it to myself :rolleyes:)
    So @cschrille those backups can be really, really, REALLY helpful sometimes when you least expect it!

    Ugh... So i decided to check for errors in startup and i clicked wrong so it came to "Install windows 7" and i thought like, whatever i still have problems so I might aswell install it on my partition. Then we got a blackout. When i booted the pc it didnt boot and it said there were no files on it, so i freaked out thinking i lost all data. Luckily it wasnt lost, only the files i had on my partition. So yeah i hope it works now ill tell you guys later when i have installed all programs etc.

    btw... you should also know about a freeware tool called TestDisk if ever needed it helps recover lost data on corrupt filesystems and lost partitions.

    I've never used it myself but have seen many people (but of course not all) say it's helped them recover lost data when partitions have disappeared
