I'm having a problem with a laptop of mine which is running Windows x64, but can't seem to finish the repair install after I had put the disk. Its been stuck at about "34 minutes" for about 2 days. I have a different partition on my hard drive otherwise I would've said screw it, and formatted the whole thing. I was thinking of formatting the os partition with linux, but unsure if it would damage the other partition. Any suggestions? I want to try and keep the partition that doesn't have my os.
