No, repair won't change your esiting configuration.

I tried doing a uninstall/repair but get the error "The web application or web site at http://localhost could not be found. Please create the web application and web site in http://localhost...".
When I try to access http://localhost from IE I get a 403 error. I am pretty sure that I use to be able to see the default SharePoint site, but not anymore. Any thoughts I how to get it back?

I was able to resolve the issue I was having but it required the retraction and removal of microsoftidentitymanagement.wsp, ilmpasswordportal.wsp and microsoftilmportalcommondlls.wsp via SharePoint Central Admin. I also needed to deactivate some hidden features using the deactivatefeature command. Once this was all done I was able to run the FIM Portal Repair. I should note that the repair did not complete successfully and reported that a fatal error had occured. None the less the FIM Portal was once again usable.
I had the same issue. After trying the uninstall / reinstall - which did not work - i tried to run the Sharepoint configuration wizard and it came up with an error that there was an upgrade job in progress.
Under the timer jobs there was an "Upgrade Job" that was hanging at "initializing".
After deleting the job in the timer definitions and restarting the Sharepoint timer service everything worked.
