Solved Windows Developer Preview 64 bit w/o tools iso?

I'm running the Windows Developer Preview 64 bit w/o developer's tools on my computer. I installed it through an iso mounted to a USB flash drive. Now, months later, it says I need to insert the disk to repair Windows. (It froze and when I restarted it said this). I can only download the consumer preview now, rendering me unable to fix it. I want to update to the Consumer Preview on my computer for the purpose of the iso being "corrupt" (missing different files each time) no matter how many times I try to redownload and remount it. If anyone knows of somewhere I can download it or has it saved somewhere and is willing to upload it somewhere, I would greatly appreciate it.:D

Hi,

Easiest choices of many:

1) Try booting to safe mode then open an elevated command prompt and run this command to fix it:

sfc /scannow

2) Just custom install the Consumer Preview.

3) If you still have the USB intact, use that to repair.

----------

There might be something wrong with your hard drive, because Windows files do not really become corrupted otherwise, causing freezes. (Maybe 3rd party software over-writting but still probably would not freeze.)

Once you have any operating system up and running, run this command from an elevated prompt:

chkdsk /r

I can't boot in safe mode because I can't boot it at all. I've been trying to install the Consumer Preview all day, but it said that it couldn't find install.wim, and I re-downloaded and redid everything, but it still couldn't find that file from the English x64 iso. Is there any other way I could do this than the iso? I'm downloading it on one computer and putting it onto another.

Wow. I just tried the Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool to mount the same image it called invalid earlier and it worked this time. I'm just bewildered. I hope this installs correctly.
