  • repair install - not given option

    i need to do a repair install after a dead motherboard replacement. i have booted off the cd and it finds the previous install but no option is given to repair it. is there any way to repair the install?

    it is a repair install, not the recovery console i am using. the volume is on a dynamic disk if that makes any difference



    thanks in advance

      it bluescreens during boot due to not having basic drivers i presume

        Was it replaced with the same type of MB?
        Might be worth updating the bios of it.
        Do you have any info from the blue screen?
        cheers

          Can you boot it in safe mode and try to install the drivers ?

            thanks for the replies. for some reason re-imaging the backup to the disk has brought back the repair option on the windows cd, its all fixed now.
