No, it's not going to fix anything else. It corrects the mbr and boot path
entries. It does not repair anything else. There is not and will not be any
repair install like there is with XP and other previous versions of Windows.
When you did a repair installation, all the system files were overwritten
with ones from the install disk. Everything else was left intact. This is
not how Vista installs. Instead of doing file overwrites, it lays down a
block by block image of the system, and any existing system folders are
moved to a windows.old folder on the root. The result is a clean install
versus the older overwritten files.
