Yeah, what I want to help with though is the repair function to get SP1 back. Is it possible by just doing a re-install without deleting all the rest of the data, if its not doing it that way?

Yeah, but all youtr documents were there which is good, so all your files intact.

I thoguht installing windows normally formatted the drive, but I haven't done it in a long time, and there might be a re-install option

In this case, you'd be fine.
