The "Disable Repair" option only affects the control panel applet.

According to the following StackOverflow thread:

Removing Install/Repair Option From MSI file Context Menu
1 ) if you right-click the msi after you have installed the program, it displays the context menu, providing you Install/Repair options...
and the answer:
Don't try to solve #1. To do this you would have to break the registration for all .msi files on the machine in question, and no end user should have to put up with an application breaking their machine.
It looks like it is not recommended to do that.
