Non-destructive Windows 7 Reinstall
« on: Jul 14, 2011, 12:37 PM »
This really should get more attention. Reading my Windows Secret newsletter this morning, I came across this excellent article from Fred Langa on reinstalling any version of Windows 7 "in place". This method will reinstall Windows 7 without reformatting or having to reinstall programs, custom settings, etc. This goes beyond the SFC method of searching and/or repairing lost and/or broken files. This method fully reinstalls Windows to a like-new setup.

Vista users will be pleased to know that the process is nearly identical for a Vista setup.

Read the article here for how-to information.
