Yes you can, but, it depends on if you have sp1 installed now and if you have a W7 pre-Sp1 installer or a W7/SP1 installer you used to install it originally.
Here's a link I found via Yahoo/Google, I was curious also. (I have an upgrade version so I can do it easier,(except for the SP1 issue, didn't even think of that)
I would still get a USB thumb drive or similar and format it fat32 and drag any files over to it that you absolutely want to keep in case something goes wrong.

of course you can.
And SP1 issues that I read about (year ago) were from some AV programs and using old version of Driver Sweeper, not enough free space to perform.
At this point there will be a lot of updates to bring Windows current - time for an SP2 almost if there was one.
That article is from 2011 too, but one that I'll bookmark for future use.
I would format and install though. If you do use the above you will have about 18GB that you want to remove (Disk cleanup).

I tried to format and instal and when it came time for a reboot it took me back to the initial install page.
After this occured 4 times I have given up and in frustration I used bootcamp to to delete windows and the partition.
Will start from scratch.
