Solved: New Windows Installation Booting Issues

Q: Solved: New Windows Installation Booting Issues

I want to install Windows 7 on an HP Pavillion Desktop which happens to have a
Sata Harddisk with an IDE DVDRW.
I set the boot Priority to the DVDRW then the Harddisk and placed the Windows disk on the dvd drive to boot from it.
But it is not booting from the CD as booting still goes to the Harddisk.
My understanding is that SATA takes First Priority.
Well in such a scenario what does one do in order to install Windows?
Please note both drives are detected in the BIOS

Thank you all for your advise

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: New Windows Installation Booting Issues

SATA doesn't take priority, I've installed Windows 7 numerous times from PATA/IDE drives with a SATA drive.

Are you sure the DVD drive works? Can it read a DVD properly? Also you mention CD, but Windows 7 comes on a DVD.

Also since this is an HP you can press ESC, F10, or F12 and choose a one time boot device rather than changing BIOS boot order.

I've tried downloading a few programs, but they all seem to end with the same result. Once I try to open up the program using the shortcut, it says the item has been moved or changed so the shortcut will no longer work properly. I try opening it manually without using a shortcut, but I can't find it anywhere. The folder where it should have the software is empty.

I'm starting to get impatient, I've tried solving this problem on my own for a day and a half, and I'm going nowhere. Is it a problem with my Windows Installer?
Also, this problem only occured to me about a day or two ago.

Trying fix a laptop, she tried to install a camera but it went wrong and now when desktop appears, "found new hardware" shows in task bar then after about 10 seconds it shuts down and re-boots.

I can get into safe mode and it runs fine. Tried a system restore but it always says "unable to restore....."

Im pretty sure its the failed installation, is there a way to stop xp trying to find the hardware? I cant find the software to remove it.

Ive tried recovery panel, chkdsk, bootcfg, fixboot and fixmbr

Thanx

A:[SOLVED] Failed installation now laptop keeps re-booting

If you go into device manager (Start > Run > devmgmt.msc) do you see the camera? If you see it can you right click on it and then disable it?

Also if that doesn't work you can try:

Go to Start > Run > type "services.msc" w/o quotes. Find the "Shell Hardware Detection" service and disable it and reboot into normal mode. Then see if the balloon pops up again or not. If it works, try re-enabling the service and then reboot and see if everything works.

Hi there!

I am trying to do a clean install for Windows XP. I inserted the bootable CD and started the computer. It asked "press any key to boot from cd" as usual. I pressed a key and "inspecting hardware configuration" appeared.

Unfortunately just a second after that screen turned blank and stayed so. I tried many times and waited a while also. Didn't help.

If it is relevant, Windows Vista is currently installed to the computer. I'd like to format the C: drive and substitute Vista to XP again. Thought, that it doesn't matter when running XP installation from boot cd, but who knows.

Thanks for Your help!

Hi,

I've got a problem with my Windows 7 installation in that - it wont boot! Either in normal or safe mode!

I've tracked the problem down to a driver - CTMMount.sys which was installed by a recent installation of Comodo Time Machine - which has since been uninstalled but doesnt look like the uninstallation has worked correctly.

Therefore I could do with editing the registry/startup procedure so that this file doesnt attempt to load and then I can get back into Windows 7 - has anyone any idea how I can do this?

Thanks

I've just created a Windows 10 installation USB using the Media Creation Tool.

I then booted it on my Windows 8.1 Pro desktop PC just to check the USB stick would boot. It booted to the first installation Windows 10 installation window as expected. I didn't want to do anything else so I just removed the USB drive and hit the PC restart button.

On restart, the PC did a chkdsk scan of drive C: and then started automatic repair for no apparent reason!

After a few minutes of watching the automatic repair rotating circle, I just powered off the PC and restarted the PC and it booted fine straight into Windows 8.1 as normal.

Why would removing the Windows 10 USB then pressing the reset button cause chkdsk to run and automatic repair to be invoked on restart?

Perhaps it had already begun rebuild boot files.
You probably should have aborted the install, closing the windows then clicking 'Yes' when prompted 'Are you sure you want to quit the installation?'
Are you booting to the USB trough the BIOS or are you opening the USB and clicking on the 'Setup.exe'?

I got a HP Notebook yesterday that had Windows 8.1 on it. Today I decided I wanted to reinstall Windows 10 (not upgrade, but clean install) on it and I do have experience in reinstalling operating systems. I reinstalled Windows 10 from a USB stick and when the computer restarted after the installation was done, it would keep booting from the USB stick. I exited the installation screen and then went to the BIOS to change boot priority to "OS Manager", but all I got was an error which I don't remember what it said, and then it just restarted again.

So my question is, how can I get Windows 10 to boot after is has installed and restarted? I really need help fast as I can't seem to solve this myself and it is really frustrating me.

A:Windows 10 Installation keeps booting from USB after clean install

If there is no USB drive connected then the BIOS will automatically choose the next boot device in line...
(You did remove the USB drive, right?)
...for example the next on the list may be your CD drive and the one after that may be your HDD.

So i;ve got ahold of the ISO, and have tried ot make one of my USBs bootable

Open Diskpart
Select Disk1 (the USB)
Clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=ntfs
assign
exit

In CMD

bootsect.exe /nt60 f: (F been the USB)

Now it tells me that its added bootmgr and so on, but when I try to boot the USB up on my friends netbook to install windows XP, it says BOOTMGR is missing. (Since when did XP use that anyway? coulda sworn I heard it had nothing to do with BOOTMGR)

Anyone able to help out?

hello all, i have been lurking around for answers but have yet to find any.
I have a HP zv6000 xp sp2 and am trying to boot a .iso. i Burnt it with powerISO correctly and my system wont recognize that it is even there.
and it reads correctly on other machines.
I dont know what to do!
Thanks in advance.

A:[SOLVED] issues with booting .iso

It sounds like CD-ROM compatibility issue. The system that will not boot to your bootable (ISO) CD may not recognize the format of the CD you are trying to use. Example, you wrote to a 52x CD on another system, and your CD-ROM drive does not support 52x.

Did you create the bootable CD on the same system you are trying use for CD boot?

Ah Hah! I answered my own question. Apparently the problem was that even though my processor supports DEP (or "No Execute"/"Execute Disable"), it is disabled in BIOS by default. The catch is that because this was a "value line" computer, there is no option in the BIOS/setup screen to enable this.

The key to getting things to work was following the directions in this thread over on the lenovo forums and use SYMCMOS to change the settings. Here's a step-by-step for anyone else who might happen to be stuck in this boat with a Lenovo N200 or similar laptop:

1. Use Rufus to create a bootable USB drive of FreeDOS.
2. Download Symcmos and place it on the root of the newly created USB drive.
3. Download a DOS text editor. I used "edit" (simply open the ZIP file and extract EDIT.exe to the root of the USB drive).
4. Boot from the USB drive and use the command "Symcmos -?" to see all the commands and their usage.
5. Run "Symcmos -Lsettings.txt" to export all the current settings to a text file called "settings.txt".
6. Type "edit settings.txt" to open the exported file and see all the things that can be changed. The Number on the left in parentheses identifies the setting and the number on the right in brackets configures the settings. For example, The number accompanying "(0267)" will be "[0001]", which means, "disable D.E.P.". Remember that these will be different for other computers, so make sure to find a definitive list somewhere for your computer explaining the definition of each "Token". Identify all the items you want to change, and now go back to the top of the document where it says, "CRC = *something*". Write down your CRC and create a new text document that starts the same way as the original ("CRC = *whatever your crcnumber is*) and paste underneath that all the values that you wrote down earlier that you wanted to change. Following this format, my document looked like this when I was done (the second setting is a fix for LCD stretch-o-vision when displaying anything on the screen other than its native resolution, how neat!):

CRC = 3EDD
(0042) [0000]
(0267) [0000]

7. Save this file as something other than what you exported your original settings as, ("NewSettings.txt" would be good) and then exit the text editor.
8. Back at the "C:\" Prompt, use the "SYMCMOS -V2 -Unewsettings.txt" (replace "newsettings.txt" with whatever you named your file when you saved it if you called it something other than newsettings.txt) to apply the settings.
9. Shut down the computer and turn it back on again. Problem(s) solved!
Note that this process may very for other models (even different BIOS versions of the same model; for the record my N200 0769 15"er has the latest 3.05 BIOS installed) of computer and may be completely different for other makes. A good place to start if you can't find a DEP option in your BIOS and SecurAble reports that DEP is disabled even though the CPU is compatible with it, would be a web search for "SYMCMOS *your computer*" ("SYMCMOS Lenovo N200", for example).

Best of luck!

The partition on the external drive that contains the installation files needs to be an active partition in order to boot from it.

Hello..

I have a hdd, and an ssd. Both have windows installed. However, to boot up from the ssd, I have to have both drives connected so the bios runs the windows boot manager, so I can select to start windows from the hhd or start windows on the ssd.

When I unplug the hhd, the bios removes the windows boot manager, leaving the ssd unable to be booted from.

When just the ssd with windows is plugged in, my computer tries to boot directly from the ssd instead of going through the windows boot manager ending with a non-bootable disk error.

Any assistance so I can remove this old hhd from my pc one and for all?

Thanks a ton guys!

I've had that happen to me before. I asked around here, and got pretty much no answer. I couldn't boot in safe mode, w/o networking, or even in command prompt without it restarting.Mine didn't stop until i re-installed windows. So, instead of losing all your files, do this:Download a version of "Live Linux" (like Knoppix or Puppy Linux). When you download and burn the files to a cd, insert the cd into your malfunctioning computers CD drive. The next time it boots up, it'll boot directly to the linux OS (should, anyway). That way you can save any files you want to. E-mail them to yourself, put them on a floppy/thumb drive, send them to a friend to be retrieved later, whatever.Then, keep Knoppix or whatever Live Linux distrobution you downloaded. It's been a major factor in my computer history, since windows seems to crash about as often as you hit the "F" key on your keyboard. I still have files that are 6 years old, but have had to re-install windows at least 6 times on 2 different boxes.Hope this helps.

Have you been getting disk errors or strange behavior previous to this error during boot?

If the hard drive is dying or dead you may be able to backup your important data by using a Windows PE boot disk, a linux live CD or something like Norton Ghost.

If you don't need anything on the disk, try to run a drive diagnostic using a boot disk and see what errors, if any, are returned.

Hi There

Its actually not a good idea to have windows XP on a portable drive as when you move it to a diffrent PC the configuration of the OS changes to that PC, So I would recommend Installing XP onto your home drive and do not try booting XP from a portable HDD again as this damages the files on the disk as the OS has to install new devices everytime itstarts

What you could try at work is , go system properties , advanced , enviroment varibles and set the following system varibles :Varible Name: devmgr_Show_non_present_devices Varible Value : 1

Now go to device manager and click show all devices (hidden devices) , the one's that are greyed or washed out icons , you could uninstall without affecting your system. This should work

I've gotten a blue screen that tells me run chkdsk /f but if I can't boot xp that does me no good.chkdsk (chkdsk /f is one option) can be run from the Recovery Console which it seems, you already have installed on the system to boot into. HOWEVER ... given some of your "crazy boot errors" ... I recommend that you first run the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic utility, because I suspect your hard drive may be failing.What is the brand (manufacturer's name) of the hard drive in question?To determine the hard drive manufacturer ... there are two ways you could do this:Open the box and read the label on the hard drive (you may have to remove the hard drive to see the label?).Enter the BIOS Setup Menu, and look at the information presented about the hard drive that is detected (if you have more than one hard drive, make sure it is the one that your Windows system is on): It will probably display the model number ... if not the brand name ... and then we can check that model number to determine the manufacturer.
Start tapping the appropriate key (usually the DELETE key) after powering-on the system, to enter the BIOS Setup Menu:

I bought the Acer V5 and tried booting it up...it came with boot-up Linux which means nothing to me so I made a Windows 8 bootable USB and the problems started. First I could'n find the USB and after enabling the Legacy mode it finally found it and booted from it. Turned out the partitions are GPT and as I made the USB MBR it couldn't install so I canceled which I guess was my mistake but there was no other option. After that I created the bootable USB with GPT partition scheme and tried again. Unfortunately this time I got something called GNU GRUB....wth? I googled around and found the commands required for booting - root (hd1,0), then chainloader +1 and finally boot. Then I get the famous The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors with Status: 0xc000000e. Of course tried that couple of more times but still to no avail. I cannot recover or repair as Windows was never really installed, so I don't know what to do....Hopefully someone here would be able to help. Thanks in advance guys.

So, I'm installing SP3 on an old laptop with only 192MB of RAM. Needless to say, the process is running excruciatingly slow.

Anyway, I've noticed during the file backup phase, the SP3 installer has complained about various files not being able to be copied to the backup location. The files DO exist and if I cancel the retry dialog and tell the setup process to proceed, it continues just fine. What concerns me is I've run into about I don't know.. 30 maybe files or so the SP3 installer couldn't copy as part of its back up process. Now, it's backing up the registry.

Should I continue with the SP3 installation or is the problem described above an indication that I should bail on the installation?

The system DID have an adware and malware infection, which I removed with Malwarebytes and AntiVir.

Thanks!

Peace...

Oh boy what a mess Yesterday I upgraded my AVG to AVG I installed AVG on top of the existing AVG as grisoft recommends It uninstalls AVG in the process However it uninstalled more than it should have That is issue I can no longer run my WAKEUP NEWS alarm clock program I get quot run-time error quot quot Can t load or Solved: issues AVG7 installation register custom control CSRAS OCX The file exists in c windows system W system I tried to force it to register by running REGSVR exe CSRAS OCX at the DOS prompt It returns the error message quot LoadLibrary csras ocx failed - one of the files needed to run this application cannot be found quot Can someone please run DEPENDS EXE on SCRAS OCX and reply letting me know what files are needed for this to work Then maybe I can figure out what got lost or damaged I do have other issues here but I ll treat them later Thanks OldJoe nbsp

A:Solved: AVG7 installation issues

OK, I found it.... Grisoft's uninstall of AVG6 removed "MFC42.DLL" file from the
C:\Windows\System folder. This is a shared file and should not be taken out.
(I wonder what else they took???)

Tell everyone who has been here to replace the file in their system folder by
copying it from another folder (like aolshare) back into the system folder.
Use "find files" to see where it may be found on one's hard drive.

Hi douglas, 
      Does  your laptop have warranty?. if so you can call dell support to fix the laptop

I think i have a possible solution by replacing cmos battery. since i don't have warranty and majority of the tech people  bluntly say it is motherboard or chipset failure. please open the youtube link and find a "James C" comment which says he fixed the 3 beeps  by changing a cmos battery
www.youtube.com/watch
I suggest this solution ..only if you dont have warranty and moreover i was thinking to change cmos battery after purchasing it

After having recently reinstalled Windows XP Home ed I loaded up Windows Update to get myself as protected as one can get with XP. Anyway I got all the security updates for SP1 and I downloaded SP2 however whenever I attempt to install it It goes as far as creating a file called sp2.cab and then I get a standard Red x error message telling me that 'The process terminated unexpectedly' with an option of OK. Selecting Ok brings a pop up box with Service Pack 2 installation did not complete'

My question is thus, how can I either get it to install properly or delete the files I downloaded so I can try to download it again to see if that will work.

I've got Norton Internet Security 2007 if that could be causing issues but I disabled it for the purpose of testing it and I'm getting the same error message

A:[SOLVED] Issues with SP2 installation - closing suddenly

You do not need to download the updates prior to SP2 . . it includes all the prior updates. In fact, the best time to upgrade to SP2 is immediately after installing XP . . before any drivers, applications or updates.

Try downloading the full update package here, it will usually go in when the Windows update package will not.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

And be sure to disable any anti-virus or anti=spyware programs for the upgrade

A:Windows 7 not booting after installation of Windows 8 ! Help !

Since you have ubuntu in the mix I can't even be sure if grub is the problem or if the windows bootmgr is the problem. Grub doesn't take well to changes and the bootmgr isn't a heck of a lot better at dealing with them.

You can try a startup repair, but as I said since grub is involved it will likely fail.

I've an Acer Aspire T, which had Windows 8 preloaded.  I wanted Windows 7, so I purchased an OEM disc from Microsoft.  Running the disk failed multip-le times, until I enabled CSM in the BIOS.  The install disc ran this time, but it loaded with very strange graphics: blotchy parts, a highly-pixellated display, and unclear screen dimensions.  I continued through with the installation, and everything worked.  Upon the final reboot, the system maintained those strange graphics, and even failed to recognize ethernet cables.  I tried reinstalling chipset drivers, ethernet port drivers (so I could update everything else that way), but no dice.  I am completely confused as to what to do.

Let's stop doing [que FDR] again and again what has not worked.  Take a very long careful look at the DVD -- are there any stray scratches, mars, blemishes, fingerprints, faults, etc.?  If so, apply a micro-filter[?] specially-designed cloth and carefully in an "across-the-tracks" motion buff out any such undesired blemishes and whatnots.  Also, get a good proper cleaning CD-DVD for the computer's cd-dvd drive.  Perhaps let dc3 or Hamlius advise 'cause they know of the best cleaning materials to buy and use.  I haven't really kept up with that part of technology, so I'll be listenin' in.
  Then, if the DVD will boot into the first blue menu, only choose the default-format HD, default-clean-install of Windows.  If you have more than one HD, if possible, dis-engage any internal or external HD until install is finished.

Hello, I would like to dual boot windows xp and windows 7. I currently am using windows 7 but I would like to install windows xp alongside it on a separate partition. I created the partition in disk management in windows seven and I booted from my xp disk and it goes through the beginning processes and then says entering windows setup and then goes to a blue screen saying that my computer needs to be shutdown. Please help me bypass this or something. Thanks.

You may have installed Windows Seven in the AHCI mode.
XP will blue screen because the AHCI drivers were not installed for XP.

I wanted to do a reinstall of Windows 7 and so far it's done nothing for me except cause stress and frustration. First it tells me it cannot install to disc because it's GPT, whatever that means... So I'm told to do Shift+F10 and enter these commands:

diskpart
select disk 0
clean
convert GPT

This appeared to work but then I got a different message. It reads "Windows cannot be installed to the disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

Not sure what to do from here... It managed to install Ubuntu so the HDD itself is fine. It's just Windows 7.
I'm on an Acer Aspire V531 BTW.

Please help this is my only computer....

What error message did it show?

Did you install by booting from the disk, or run it from another OS?

You might try booting from the disk or USB flash, choose Custom>Advanced tools and Delete all, create one New partition, then Format and install.

I ran Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and followed all of the instructions to make sure my computer was ready for the upgrade. Now the installation won't run because it says I still need to delete Trend Micro Antivirus and Google Toolbar, both of which I have already deleted. I have searched my computer and deleted anything and everything that had Google or Trend Micro on it. It still won't finish. When I deleted everything, I used Control Panel> Uninstall Programs.

My computer is an HP Pavillion Media Center m8100n TV PC, Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, 3072MB System Memory, 500GB Hard drive, 3.0 GB RAM, and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.80 GHz.

Is there anywhere else I need to look for these files, or do you have any general suggestions on the upgrade?

A:Windows 7 Installation Compatibility Issues

Is there any reason in specific you are running the UA? As far as general suggestions, I would advise backing up your data and doing a clean install instead of the upgrade. The clean install will allow Windows 7 to run as smooth as possible and will also help if you have any future issues. I attached a few links that may help you. The first is for general media [non-upgrade media]. The second is specific for upgrade media. Also, don't hesitate about coming back if you have any issues. Just remember to search first.

Hi, all. I'm in the middle of installing Windows 7 Pro x64, but it's giving me the message "Installing an unsigned 64-bit device driver is not supported and might result in an unstable Windows installation". This occurs after I click "Load Driver" and select my Rapid Storage Tech driver from my USB stick.

This is the driver I'm trying to install: Lenovo Support - Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver Windows 7 (64-bit), Vista (64-bit) and XP (64-bit) - ThinkPad

I've even tried rebuilding my Windows 7 image in RT Seven Lite with the "Force Unsigned driver integration" checkbox checked. I still get the message after burning that ISO, and retrying the installation. How do I force unsigned driver installation?

Hello, I'm having some problems installing Windows XP: Home Edition on my computer. This is a fresh install on a brand new Hdd. I've eliminated it being an hdd or bad xp disk issue, as I've tried both of my disks on multiple hdds, and i only run into the problem on one computer. It goes through the formatting, and copying of the files. But the problem is with the reboot halfway through the installation. It boots back up, POSTS and goes to a black screen with a little green dot in one corner and that's where it stops. Any ideas for what could be causing this? Thanks

2 things to try, 1st remove all but 1 of the sticks of ram from the machine. if u get the same problem remove that stick and use another. 2nd remove your graphics card and do the install with the on board graphics chip if u have one. Also it is not advisable to overclock while doing an install of windows. if u are oced then reset the clocks and memory timings, do the install and overclock again when the install is complete

Hi,

It all appears to be setup ok, user accounts etc....but when I try to update drivers, install a printer, load anti virus, the usual sort of stuff, well the item I am installing just stops responding & loading midway through installation, no matter what it is......also W7 wont shut down of its own accord, just gets stuck on the logging out screen.

Any help would be much appreciated, btw system is:

I'd start over and follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
to get a perfect install.

Pay special attention to how drivers are handled in Win7 as it is not like XP at all. First do all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3). Only import drivers still missing after all Updates are done.

To get the cleanest slate for a perfect install I'd also first wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command

Image Description: And I don't have a clue as to how this could've happened....

As regards to the third error, I have researched the error through the internet, and I hadn't found any FAQ's to resolve the issue.
Unfortunately, I haven't recieved much assistance from this forum, but hopefully, people could give more input into giving remedies for my situations.
Additionally, I would love to know if there is a method to install Windows XP to a specific partition?
Thank you.

A:Windows XP Professional SP3 Setup Installation Issues.

Is this a upgrade over a Win98 installation . . those seldom go well . . a clean install will reesult in a much more stable system.

If you are wanting to dual boot, choose the partition you want to install on early in the installation . .after you have booted from the XP CD.

This is a good guide to reinstalling XP . . you might want to print it for reference during the install.
