Grrr... :) OK back to looking

 

Might be worth backing the data up from that drive in case a re-install is needed

T_T That's the last thing I need. [Though I did that prior to posting this issue.]

 

Thanks for the help Essex. I am still hopeful.

There's none. Only the sick drive is connected. No DVD nor USB devices connected.

You can try that and it may work with fingers and toes crossed :)

But it is a possible option that could work

I just read it earlier. Though I cannot find it upon looking under C:\windows\system32\.

Where to locate the file? If the location is C:\windows\system32\, how to see/access it.

*Show hidden files and folders option is enabled, and Hide protected os files is disabled.

Thanks. Will try it now. 

 

Just one question before doing so, what worse could happen?

Thanks Essex. Haha!! Well, I did it last night. And I got disconnected from internet for some reason I don't know.

It didn't work. And yeah, fortunately Armageddon didn't happen xD

Next we can try an inplace upgrade, this may or may not work as in theory this should be run from within windows but has been known to work from the recovery console. This should just replace and upgrade all windows files

In-place Upgrade
=============
1. Insert the Windows 7 DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
2. Click Start and choose Computer.
3. Please find the "setup.exe" file in the DVD-ROM and double click it.
4. Click Install now.
5. When we are prompted to input the product key, please click Next without inputting any key. The setup wizard will prompt and ask if you agree to install Windows 7 without the key. Please choose to confirm.
6. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the system files of Windows 7.

Tried it in recovery console, and it suggest to boot the disk normally before proceeding with the upgrade.

OK back to the drawing board, however, I do not feel that there are any meaningful options left
