Working on a Sony lap top, which had Vista originally installed on it. Operating system was updated to Windows 7 Home premium from an upgrade disk. Worked fine for many months. Now it seems there is a problem with the operating system. Would like to repair using the install disk, but I believe the system was updated to SP-1 . Looked at slipstreaming Sp-1 to create an updated disk, but read that the created disk would not work to repair the system files. Could anyone shed any light on what would be a way to repair the current system.

That very much depends on what the actual problem is when you say "Now it seems there is a problem with the operating system".

Even in starting the system in safe mode, it takes 5 to 8 minutes to respond to any command. That is why I think system files are damaged. Starting the computer from a disk operating system ( Ubuntu) the hardware appears fine, computer operates fine.

Some OEM recovery DVDs cannot perform a Repair .. Wipe and reinstall only ... Not sure about Sony.
Have you made a W7 Repair CD ??
This may not fix it .. but it won't hurt to try.

The first thing I'd look at is your antivirus .. Mine slows my W7 bootup .. I think ??
