Default Windows Repair

Would a Windows Repair make a new registry and will it remake the hardware list?

I guess it would if those areas were corrupted. A repair install does just that, it repairs your installation of windows.

Cool Re: Windows Repair

Repair and reformat I don't think are any different when putting in the Windows disk and using that function. It re-writes the registry over what you have and defaults it to the CD ver.
