Last year, I bought a new ThinkPad laptop from a reseller on eBay. Today, it BSOD'd on boot, giving me the options to repair Windows, or attempt to reboot normally. Whatever's causing the BSOD is apparently a gamekiller -- it happens almost immediately after the "loading Windows" screen appears. Now, the problem -- the license for Windows is genuine as far as I know, but as I just got the laptop when I ordered it (i.e. not the original Windows install disc), I seem to be in trouble when it comes to restoring the laptop. It's running Win7 32-bit. I have a seperate 64-bit license/DVD for my desktop, and an old 32-bit Vista DVD. I am assuming that neither of these discs could be used to repair the core Win7 files? Is it even worth a try? (probably a better chance w/ Vista than with Win7-64, I would think.) If I can track down a friend's 32-bit Win7 install disc, could I use it to repair Windows, or is the disc itself somehow associated with the specific license? Apart from all that, any other advice/suggestions?
