Repair install of Windows Home Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • The install DVD I have does not include Service pack 1.

    The install on the computer has been updated with service park 1 about 6 months ago.

    I can not do a repair install of the OS with the DVD I have as it tells me that the install it is it is trying to repair is newer.

    Can anyone give me a download site for an ISO of Windows Home Server 2011 SP1?

    Thanks for any help.

  • I assume them you did not back up your server? As far as I am aware there were no Installation DVD updates.

  • Then I would lose my SQL Database and all my computer backups.

    I could restart the backups, but the SQL Database is something else.

  • Is the DB located on the same HDD as your OS installation? If not, then how would you lose it? Just re-install everything and attach the database. Otherwise, see if you can read the HDD on another system (so not as OS drive and perhaps via an external USB/eSATA enclosure or some such) and copy the file to a safe place before starting the re-install.
