My High End Workstation dosent work when I install Windows 7 64bit

Q: My High End Workstation dosent work when I install Windows 7 64bit


I have the following workstation configuration :

PROCESSOR - Dual (two processors) - Xeon E5520 8M Cache, 2.26 GHz, 5.86 GT/s Intel? QPI

MOTHERBOARD - Intel Workstation board S5520 SC

GRAPHICS CARD - Palit Nvidia GeForce GTX 275 (986 MB) Dual DVI out

RAM - DDR3 1333 MHz 6 GB (G-Skill)

MONITORS - 2 are connected (Samsung Sync Master 2233 & NEC Accusync LCD 224WXM)


The problem with the above configuration is that when I try to install Windows 7, the machine freezes (hangs) randomly, I have tried formatting and installing for at-least 4-5 times now but what happens is the setup doesn't work and stops during installation, last time the setup was successful but it hangs the workstation without any reason. I have also tried installing the same CD on other system and it works fine.

Can anybody help me out with the problem!!!!

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was setting up my network, and when i was finished and enjoying my Internet..... I noticed that my WMP 11 dosent play any files. It says...."Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct"....

The proxy settings are correct.I would try to reinstall WMP but the webstie dosent have it for vista, and i cant access WMP through control panel. Is their a way to reinstall it??? Or does anyone know what files could cause this if interupted.

The CD Player works great on music and software.
When I put in a DVD I only get a responce of a disk along side of the curser. After 30 seconds The disk will dissapear.
I have tried the troubleshoot guide that windows has to offer to no avail. The system does show a dvd drive.

A:[SOLVED] Will this Vista 32bit to 64bit install work?

I went ahead with this this morning. Booting from the dvd offered only a clean install so I did not have to do the repeat install trick. All went well with a glitch free install. When I added back the extra 2gb though I got a BSOD on all bootups (I thought the issue with V64 and 4gb was with installing, not running!).

Updating the Crosshair BIOS to 904 solved that completely. Now running fine with all 4gb seen. Windows Experience Index dropped from 5.5 to 5.4 on the processor, with no change in BIOS settings - don't know why or really care - just curious.

The only problem I've encountered is that PCTools Spy Doctor will not install on Vista 64. Displays message that it is incompatible. Too bad, it is one o the best anti-spy apps. I'll live with it. All other 32 bit apps are automatically installed into an separate x86 Programs folder.

I have a 30 trial period in which to experiment. If all OK, I'll delete 32 bit and activate 64 with same key.

If the boot order is set to optical drive before hard disk and the computer bypasses a bootable disk on boot, the drive is dead.

Verify the disk is actually bootable by trying it in another system. If it boots there, then it is final the drive is dead.

Also when I go into the recovery cd, my os is not listed on the list of os's to repair. I'm not sure, but it seems to me that it can't find boot\bcd at All, how would I go about getting it back?

I have a Dell Xps/410, running Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit. Intel Q6600 2.4GHz. processor, Nvidia 8600GTS 256 video card with 250 Gb. SATA II hard drive and Creative audio.
Everytime I try to install the WIndows 7 BETA version it doesn't recognize the CD. I have made the CD-ROM first priority in the system's BIOS but it still doesn't work. Anyone have any suggestion? Would this happen to have something to do with my system being a DELL?
Or maybe I should consider wiping the hard drive first and then trying to install Windows 7 version.

My hard drive crashed and I had to replace with a new one.  I upgraded to Windows 10 and utilized HP website for the drivers.  The problem is that some of my USB ports will not work and I'm getting 3 "Base system devices" 1 "PCI serial Port" and 2 "Unknown Devices" that will not install in my device manager.  I tried all of the drivers on the web site and I cannot find the original discs that came with the machine. The rear USB devices and the hidden wireless keyboard/Mouse port are not working.

Hi: The PCI Serial Port needs this driver...You may have to manually intall this driver if the auto install didn't work for you before, by browsing to the driver folder from the PCI Serial Port>update driver>browse my computer for driver software>browse to C:\SWSetup\sp74499. This package contains the Intel Management Engine Software version 11.0 for the supported Workstation models and operating systems. This package installs the latest Management Engine Interface (MEI) and Serial-Over-LAN (SOL) drivers, as well as Intel Management and Security Status (IMSS), to support Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) versions 8.x and 9.x. The Base system device needs this driver... This package contains the JMicron Smart Card Reader Driver. This driver enables the integrated media card slot on supported models running a supported operating system. Initial Release. For the unknown devices, please post the hardware ID's for those. To find the hardware ID, click on the unknown device.  Then click on the details tab at the top of the unknown device window. Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 3rd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window. W10 is supposed to contain the USB3 drivers needed, and I have no idea what you have to do to fix that. There are no drivers you can install from anywhere. I would google the problem...USB ports don't work in Windows 10.

Dear HP experts,Thank you for your time I need an advice to istall windows 7 Ultimate x64 on HP z420 workstation . I have tried alot but an error of ((No device driver were found)) is always shown.Just like the attached picture.Things i have do- changing sata mode from RAID+AHCI to IDE ......which is my only options-changing IDE sata mode from compatable to enhance- disabling EFI boot Sources-disabling legacy boot sources.all these steps lead me to one way, which is no device driver were found. in my best move the installing continue but without a hard drive shown to format or delete. Any AdviceThanks

View Solution.

A:Z420 Workstation troubleshooting in Install Windows

If you have more than 1 disk in your system, and you have RAID+AHCI set, then you likely need to jump into the raid controller BIOS at boot time (by pressing "CTRL C" if i recall correctly) and define a virtual disk or VD (which can wipe existing data so be warned). Then when windows install loads, you will see the virtual disk that you have create earlier and can thus select this VD for the install to continue. This assumes the install media has the (chipset) raid drivers which i think is the case. If the install disk does not have the required (chipset) raid drivers, then you may need to place them on a usb drive and point the install to it using F8, at which point you will see your VD and can continue with the install. If it all sounds like too much, you can remove all but one HDD and then RAID function will not be relevant as it will fall back to simple AHCI. If you still don't see the lone HDD, try and add the chipset drivers using the F8 method. I had similar issues a while ago on my Z210 and solved it by using default BIOS firmware settings, then created a VD and lastly placed Intels RST driver, specifically the F8 driver on a USB and during the Windows install process pressed F* and pointed to the USB drive where the driver was seen and loaded at which time my VD was visable so all could continue.

I am trying to install Windows 7 on a HP Z240 SFF workstation but when I boot from the Windows 7 USB media, it does not show the HDD even though it is connected.  it would be great if someone could help me out with this issue. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to Install windows 7 on HP Z240 SFF Workstation

Hello matt_william,  If you are using a retail version of Windows 7 Operating System. You may have to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver while installing the OS. On the HDD partition windows, you will get LOAD DRIVER option, you have to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.   Please find below link to download Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY NEED TO BE PERFORMED ON ANOTHER UNIT.   TO USE THE INTEL RAPID STORAGE TECHNOLOGY DRIVER DURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: 1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

A:Which VMware workstation player to install on windows 10

VMware workstation is at version 12.1 and can be installed Windows 10,8,or 7 64 bit only, They stopped making 32 bit versions of VMware Workstation at 10.1 and that can be installed on Windows 10,8,or 7 32 bit computers.

Yes you can run almost any version of Windows on it and also most versions of Linux, I think it is even possible to run Android 86 but I'm not sure I haven't tried Android yet

Hey guys., I have a 512Mb Lexar USB drive, and it claims 240MB is used even though there are no files on it. I ran defrag, scanned for errors and all of that jazz. I tried formatting it with Fat formatting and got an error that the drive cannot be formatted and to close all programs using the drive (there were none using it). I read the thread about problems with flash drives and how to format them, but I cannot find a single person i know who still has a W98 OS.

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you browse the windows explorer you can see there are other similar profiles that it looks like used to be . What would happen if I tried to rename a user in Active directory?

A:Building high perfroamnce home workstation - I need an advice!

Welcome to the forums.

I can tell you that if you're going to run an FX-8350 at that kind of load 24/7, it's going to get hot. I know from experience, they run hot. I would recommend water cooling if you're going to buy an FX for this purpose. It doesn't have to be fancy, just a sealed AIO system from Corsair or CoolerMaster will do fine:

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm - (if your case has room for it)


Cooler Master Seidon 120M ? All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and Fan -

The Seidon will fit most cases.

That will keep your temps down and make that 8350 last longer.

Sounds like a killer build.

I have a T5500, and anytime I stress the CPUs the system starts a continuous, constant beep noise.
The system still appears to run normally and the CPU temps are also under control, just the annoying sound.
I do not see a continuous sound anywhere in the manual so I don't know what this means.
This is an old machine and out of warranty so if I cannot find the problem, can I just turn off or disconnect the speaker making the noise?

A:[Solved] T5500 Workstation continuous beep with high CPU usage.

Solved, I feel like such an idiot. Someone helped me find the problem. I am powering the PC with a UPS unit right next to it and it clearly does not have the juice to power the T5500 anywhere close to full load.
So after days of troubleshooting I found it to be a simple ID10T error.

Hey Guys,

I bought Babylon 2 days ago and it does not work well on my windows 8.1 64bit new computer I do not know why

A:Babylon on Windows 8.1 64bit does not work very well...

Not that this is going to help you much, but not many games work well on Windows 8 right now.
My kids won't touch 8 because games like World of Warcraft and League of Ledgends just do not play on it and there are no patches in site for them.
This is where Xbox is going to take the market on Windows, there is no pc gaming company that is going to make patch after patch for their games to work on a pc with the release schedule MS proposes on it's OS's from here on out.

Did it say on the box that it was Windows 8 compatible? I am guessing that it didn't and that's why you can't get support for it.

Best thing I could tell ya is to try and run it in compatibility mode and see if that works, but I am not real big on gaming with my pc, I am more of an application / modification type of guy. I am sure there will be others along here that could maybe help you out, but to be honest the outlook looks kind of bleak, I think you got stuck with a game that has to be playing on a Windows 7 system or earlier.

A:32bit Game on 64bit Windows 8 OS won't work

There are 2 possibilities here that I can think off right off the bat.
#1: You may need to use compatibility mode to get it to run. Try setting it at different compatibility modes, like XP or Vista, and see if it will work that way.
#2: many older 32-bit programs have portions of 16-bit code in them. This wasn't really an issue for many years, as 32-bit Operating Systems will run 16-bit code. However, a 64-bit OS cannot run 16-bit code, and these programs cannot work on a 64-bit system, period. No way to make it compatible.

I don't know the game you're speaking of, so can't ID the problem for you accurately for you, but check into those 2 scenarios and see what your issue is. If it turns out that there is 16-bit code in the program, you may have to set up a Virtual Machine (I do it with VirtualBox) and install a 32-bit OS as a Virtual machine, and run it from there.

Hi all,

I want to update the drivers for my GTX260 graphics card.
I downloaded the appropriate driver for my OS, Vista Home premium 64 bit (OEM):
Driver: 182.06_geforce_winvista_64bit_english_whgl.
But when I try to run the driver application I get the following error:

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running.Check your computer's system information to see wether you need an x86(32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact your software publisher".

I have the same problem with 64bit NVidia networkcontrollers.

Is this a known problem or am I doing something wrong?

A:Unable to install 64bit NVidia drivers on Vista 64bit

I was just wondering if this could be just an installer problem.
The filesize of 182.06_geforce_winvista_64bit_english_whql is just 22kb.
I noticed on another site (64bit and x64) they have a download of the same driver that is a 100 MB.

Is anyone familiar with Can I safely download the NVidia drivers
from there?

And do I really need to install 64bit versions of the driver or can I just as well install the 32 bit version of the same driver (even though my OS is 64 bit) ???

Any help would be much appreciated!

Smadav is an additional protection (second layer) antivirus, and specialize in protecting USB Flash-disk to avoid virus infection.

I other words they don't intend on this being your primary AV and it may not even have active monitoring. I would ditch it for something else.

You need at least 1 hard drive connected to install windows, disconnect all others.

Not sure why you mention the phrase "open the exe file", you are to boot from the disc, not open it in windows.

Set the bios to defaults by hitting F5 then F10 to save and exit before you start.

Then, Just follow the tutorial, you`ll be done in 15 minutes.

Windows 7 64 bit will run just fine on 2 gigs of RAM. However, I would recommend sticking with 32 bit for you. 64 bit uses more resources, and you may have a harder time finding drivers. If you have 4 gigs or more, you will need to get 64 bit.

-Install the latest driver you downloaded earlier.

If so, double check that its in either the Blue x16 slot on your board, or one of the small x1 White slots.
it will not work in the long white slots, if this is the board Im thinking it is.

how do i install this file because its 32 bit and 64 bit

ive installed 7 64 bit before but whats the upgrade folder

could someone take me through the steps


A:install windows 7 7229 64bit

Hello Gilly. Your avatar hurts to look at.....

Anyways, first off, edit out the Demonoid Text File.

Second, the upgrade is to upgrade from a previous install.

Upgrade Install with Windows 7

Tried to upgrade a Tecra M11-11J to Windows 7 64-bit.
The install gets as far as the 'Loading Windows Files' screen, then goes blank and freezes, with the CPU fan maxing out but no HDD activity.

Have tried reinstalling XP (works fine), reflashing the BIOS to the latest version, re-seating the RAM, changing the HDD to 'Compatibility' mode and reinstalling Win 7 - same problem.

Have tried Win 7 32-bit - same problem.
Install from USB, instead of DVD - same problem.
Different flavours of Win 7 - same problem!

This is extremely frustrating.
I upgraded the memory to 8GB, hoping to take advantage of this with W7x64 and now I'm stuck with an XP machine and 4GB of RAM going to waste.

Would be very grateful for any suggestions.


A:Tecra M11-11J - cannot install Windows 7 64bit

and Win 7 installation does not work even using the old 4GB RAM?

Or did you try to install the Win 7 on this Tecra M11 using the new 8GB RAM?

How about the HDD? Does HDD appears on the first BIOS page?

I have upgraded my NB550D to Windows7 Home Premium and installed 4Gb RAM.
It's working much better but want to go further and do a _clean install_ of Windows7 Ultimate _64bit_ in order to take full advantage of theupgrade in RAM.

My question is: What do I do about the Toshiba drivers for 64bit? I presume i will need some?

What is the best way to go about the upgrade - any help will be appreciated! :D

A:NB550D - Best way to install Win 7 64bit and 64bit drivers

If you would switch to Win 7 64bit then you will need some Win 7 64bit drivers.
On the Toshiba European driver page I could find some 64bit drivers but it looks like not all Toshiba tools for Win 7 64bit are released.

Drivers for WLan or BT stack can be found here:

All other drivers or Toshiba tools like value added package or Face Recognition, Eco Utility and others could be used from other notebook series? for example Satellite C660D or other series like L750D, L755D or C670D
Surely you have to pay attention to the built in graphic chip, LAN or chipset?
Use the drivers which are released for the chips in NB550D

Hey I have searched all over my processor is capable. even though 64bit install Cant 64bit the internet and found no solution to my problem But considering my situation I am sure there must be a solution so here Cant install 64bit even though my processor is 64bit capable. goes Short story My pc says its bit capable but it doesn't seem to be able to recognize any bit install disks What should I do Long story A while back I upgraded from vista to windows When I did this I could choose between a bit and a bit installation I tried bit but it said that was not possible on my computer I cant remember the exact error message Cant install 64bit even though my processor is 64bit capable. I didn't make much of it and just installed bit But now I need bit for the new adobe video editor I don't have that first windows install disk But I since bought a new windows Home Premium bit disk When I insert this and start up the laptop it simply says system disk error or non system disk It seems like my pc is not bit capable and so cannot recognize the disk But on my pc specs you can check your specs somewhere it says that my pc processor is bit capable I'm not sure what this means Does this mean the processor is bit capable but the hard drive or motherboard is not All the hardware except the battery and power cable is still the original from when I bought the laptop years ago so it wouldn't make any sense to have a bit processor with an inferior motherboard hard drive I don't know why my pc wont install bit What should I do Things I've tried - I read somewhere if you have more than GB RAM that could be a problem I have GB RAM So I took out GB ram and then tried installing bit This didnt work The laptop wouldnt even start anymore until I add the gb ram back - Change the IPAC to enabled in the BIOS settings It turns out I have a retarded BIOS F A without any advanced settings so that I can't change the IPAC Whether the IPAC is currently on or off I don't know In Windows Upgrade Advisor it says that I need gb free space for the installation of bit windows My hard drive is GB but it is full atm Is it worth deleting GB and then trying to install again Surely this wont work because bit just erases everything anyway And plus if that was the only problem then my pc would at least recognize the install disk but then say I have no space afterwards no I'm at a loss Please help

A:Cant install 64bit even though my processor is 64bit capable.

I would recommend at least 4 GB of RAM and at least 20GB of free Hard disk space. If your HDD is 20GB then I would consider getting a new hard disk to find Windows and any ADobe apps as they do considerably use up a lot of disk space.

So I upgraded to Windows 8 from XP via unlock key without CD, forgetting that it'd be 32bit too.. I'm making a rebuild soon and I think 64bit would really benefit me, apart from some programs I use that are being discontinued in 32bit. A friend of mine recently upgraded to Win 8 too, but he bought the CD. Could I use his CD to overwrite my Win 8 32bit with a 64bit one? And another question: if I could (and I hope I can) is there an option during install to leave some free space for Linux? Having Windows 8 only is not safe ..

Thanks in advance.

Thank you,

A:Can't install .Net Framework 3.5 in Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

You say you can't install .Net 3.5? It should be installed by default. First let's determine if you actually already have 3.5. An easy method is to navigate to C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework . You will have a folder for each version installed

Or a simple utility like .NET Version Detector

Also confirm it is enabled in Turn windows features on or off

Start> In search box type Turn windows features on or off> Enter> Scroll down to Microsoft .NET Framework> It will likely show 3.5.1 as mine does (even though I have V4 installed, 3.5 comes WITH Windows 7)> Make sure it is highlighted

Assuming you do actually already have it, then we're trying to determine why this program is asking for it? Why you think that's the issue, etc. We'd need to know what software is causing the issue, screenshots of any errors, and how you determined .net 3.5 is the issue.

P.S I don't have any spare flashdrives as they like breaking. And, sadly, no spare discs for a week. I can't eve partition because of some stupid disabled thing.

A:Can't install Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit?

You say you've tried everything, but that doesn't tell us what you've tried.

Did you download another ISO?

Did you try a slower burn?

Have you set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the first boot device?

What exactly do you mean by your USB flash drives keep breaking?

If you do have a bad burn or a corrupted ISO, then really you're screwed until you get some more blank discs.

The new install of Windows 7 was fine to begin with but now I have had various BSOD over the last week. The computer is completely updated and all device drivers are up to date with the 64bit versions. I have also run MS ram tester which didnt throw anything up however will run it again later to double check.

I have attached the minidump zip file as per the forum instructions. The specs of the system I have also filled out in my bio bit.

My laptop came with windows 10 pre-installed.  I've been trying to downgrade it to windows 7 64 bit.  Every time i put the CD in the drive to boot windows 7, it seems to work up until the point where it scans the hardware configuration.  At that point it asks me for drivers and will not continue. There are drivers for windows 7 on the product page for this model, but they look like drivers that you would use after you get windows installed. Can someone post me the steps about what i need to do in order to make this work?  What settings i need to have in the bios, and any drivers i would need for the install of windows 7? Thanks

A:Y700 15ISK - How to install windows 7 64bit?

So to update this, i still haven't figured out how to install windows 7 on this.  Here's what i've done: I've used both the Windows 7 DVD and i created a bootable USB wiith it (UEFI Boot).  They work. I disabled the  security in the bios, so i could work with UEFI, but when i boot the machine with either, the windows 7 loading screen happens, then it freezes on the Starting Windows animated logo.  I can get no further. When i set the bios to boot in legacy mode it gets past that part, but then asks me for a driver.   I've downloaded all of the windows 7 64 bit drivers on the Y700-15ISK driver page, but none of them seem to be the driver that windows is looking for. Right now i'm a little at the end of my rope on this.  Any help would be appreciated.

I installed Windows 7 64bit SP1 a few weeks ago and it never completed the installation, so when I reboot the computer it constantly returns to Stage 4 of the set up and then fails at 69%. The computer then proceeds to reboot, but runs very slowly, and glitches occur when running various programs. It also continually tries to install security update KB2556532, but this install, which says it has been completed successfully, fails every time (and the system has tried to install this fix more than fifteen times). To solve the problems I tried to uninstall the Service Pack through Control Panel (programs and features utility), but when I bring up that screen it says that there are NO installed updates, even though I know for a fact that there are dozens of them.

Can I use the Windows 7 disks to do a repair, or do I need to do a clean install?

Still during installation windows prompted, that it could not install the program in
a subfolder to the windows folder because not administrator.
And asked for a rerun of the installation as an administrator.
It's mine computer, so I'm administrator.

How do I install the program in the described subfolder?

No problem whatsoever---you wont need raid for editing DV--its really not necessary. Yes your ethernet controler is for your network connections and thus it will be used for the Internet. All routers will run XP and 98. Forget about the integrated audio for any serious audio editing (the forgotten element of video editing) Also, make sure you dont use the sound blaster for you firewire connection----lots of reported problems. Go with a seperate firewire card with a TI chipset.

Last but not least, Premiere 5.1 is not a very stable program----they didn't get it right until version 6.0 so if possible, UPGRADE.

I wouldn't recommend the built-in Admin account as a daily driver as it can't run modern/metro apps, but if all it's going to be is an HTPC it should be fine. However, given the HTPC stuff will run fine as a limited user account and get the additional sandboxing and security, I'm not sure there's really a need to run as admin either. Just my thoughts, virtually out loud .

Hello Quick recap Thursday I reformatted my pc due to long time issues that finally piled up Fail Install Win 7 64bit Fresh UpdateS Windows I installed windows home bit from my original legit windows upgrade disc I got when windows was released I've used this disc for this before and worked fine The install went smooth and windows activation worked perfectly right when I booted up I was able to activate no problem I installed my drivers and enabled automatic updates Windows went through a series of - updates installing at a time then it had one big spurt of about updates All were installing fine but a few were failing and kept re trying during the next update Finally I'm at a point now where the Windows UpdateS Fail Fresh Win 7 64bit Install same updates keep failing I've tried running Fix it SFC Scan shows no problems System update readiness tool installs and finishes and still The updates fail Attached is the CBS folder Error Windows UpdateS Fail Fresh Win 7 64bit Install s found Code E Code Windows UpdateS Fail Fresh Win 7 64bit Install B Code The Failing updates are KB KB KB KB KB KB KB KB KB I've read online someone suggested to reformat again turn off automatic updates install the Service Pack from the iso from microsofts website then manually install updates like or so at a time until you're all caught up Seems like a hassle but I'm willing to do this if this means it will solve my issue so I'm trying to upload the cbs zip folder and my zip is mb when I try to upload it just times out and gives me a error is there a way I can lower this file size by deleting some of its contents it says the zip limit is only mb but my file is over times that Edit So I tried to make a zip of just the cbs text file inside the cbs folder but that file is still mb when I open the cbs text file thinking I could select half of it and make two separate zip files from two separate text files the problem is this text file is so massive its got to be like over pages long when I drag to select only half of it to copy and paste to a new file I will be here for hours just spinning my mouse wheel hmm Edit okay I think I got it I told WinRAR to split to maximum file size and I think it worked CBS rar
