I have a problem during installation,
after windows copies setup files and right before the beginning of the installation wizard, a color test striped pattern (Red, Green, Blue, Gray) keeps blinking and the installation STOPS.
Any suggestions ?!
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.)
Where did you get the Ultimate install dvd from, sounds bad.
Just reboot, see if the install will finish.
Hello I formatted my computer installation Ultimate Windows problem(s) 7 yesterday thinking I'd install Windows Ultimate on it If I attempt to install the OS via a USB stick the installation gets stuck at either or Furthermore it takes about hours to get to that point So I figured I'd try installing from the DVD But whenever I boot off the DVD I get the message quot BOOTMGR IS MISSING PRESS CTRL ALT DEL TO RESTART quot I also tried formatting Windows 7 Ultimate installation problem(s) the drive via the USB before trying the CD but Windows 7 Ultimate installation problem(s) it made no difference The installation files should be fine I installed the OS with the same DVD on another computer a few days ago All I can find on google regarding quot BOOTMGR quot is people who are either dual-booting OS' or running with several harddrives I only have one in my computer Furthermore all solutions I could find were for people who already had succesfully installed an OS Any help would be appreciated
Wipe the hard-drive with Killdisk before attempting another install from the DVD.

Hi and welcome.
Interesting problem. The only thing I would suggest is to reduce down to 4 Gig of RAM on in the initial install 64bit unstall. If this works out and you update your motherboard drivers as well as the other hardware drivers then try reinstalling the additional RAM.
This is just my idea of what I would do.
Let us know what happens.
Hey guys, So I recently reformatted my hard drive and when I went to install windows everything went fine, It gets up to the first restart but then after that whenever it's Starting Windows my PC turns off for a few seconds then turns back on.

I want to install windows 7 on my pc.
Everything works until windows has been booted from the dvd/usb (I tried with both)
I get the background of the installation and I can move my mouse, but the installation window doesn't pop-up.
nothing happens, I don't get an error or bsod.
I've tried removing everything except monitor, keyboard and mouse while booting, but that didn't help.
the 'windows upgrade advisor' says that my pc could run the 64bit version of windows 7.
Thanks in advance
Hello Detryoal, welcome to Seven Forums!
Where did you get the ISO/DVD you're doing the install from; how large a partition are you trying to install to?
If the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.
Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

Maybe you should have a look at this information below.
After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "clean all" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old Windows drivers, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.

I am just going to try a guess. Try with another usb memory stick. Installing off memory sticks can be problematic.
How do you create do the boot files for you memory stick? Manually or with software (wintoflash)
Did you format it as fat32 or NTFS?

I posted this on another site but have not yet received a response so I figured I'd try posting it here as well Here is the original post and replies on SSD Ultimate New Installation with 64-bit W7 Issues Okay so I just bought this Intel SSD and a nice OEM copy of Windows Ultimate -bit for my friend The computer Installation Issues on New SSD with W7 64-bit Ultimate is currently running on an i with gigs of corsair RAM and a Diamond Radeon HD X which at the Installation Issues on New SSD with W7 64-bit Ultimate moment is loading on a gb seagate with XP -bit So the general Installation Issues on New SSD with W7 64-bit Ultimate fact that the computer is working under these circumstances which is also allowing me to post here at the moment leads me to believe that all of these components are functioning properly I am even able to access the SSD while booting off this other harddrive However when I boot from the Windows disk and do a fresh install deleting and formatting any and all partitions on the SSD and starting from scratch the installation gets to the point where it says quot completing installation quot which appears after restarting once I believe and then after that it goes to the windows logo screen After the logo screen the G keyboard lights up and says G which tells me that it's loaded to something however the monitor says quot entering power save mode quot and turns off Basically there is no signal going to the monitor Now I'm not able to tell if the computer actually froze at this point or is just no longer sending a video signal If this were a problem with the graphics card wouldn't it also be apparent with what I'm doing now booting XP from the other drive At this point in the installation process I've tried booting into the SSD with safe mode which works BUT it tells me that it can't complete the setup process in safe mode and that it will restart so it can continue I tried Advanced Boot options like the low graphics mode and some diagnostic mode Neither worked So naturally I tried deleting partitions and reformatting and reinstalling windows about two more times both with the same result however on the second time it actually froze on the quot completing installation quot screen So right now I'm at a loss as to how I should proceed It doesn't look like the SSD is faulty since it's brand new and shows the so far installed windows files on it while viewing it from this other boot So I'd like to avoid an RMA until I can be sure of the problem Unfortunately I don't have access to another video card to try in the computer and the motherboard doesn't have on-board video so that's out If anyone has any idea what I should try next that would be as simple and pain-free as possible please let me know I'm hoping this is something very simple and stupid that I'm just not thinking of - Alright so it happened again I install Windows and after it restarts to load in logo comes up and then bam the monitor is no longer receiving signal It almost seems like it's sitting at some screen waiting for me to do stuff but obviously that's not gonna happen if I can't see the damn thing - Something interesting that I noticed I loaded into the windows disk and tried a repair and it had the drive listed as D rather than C for some reason Although it found no problems and is still not working I see no way upon creating a fresh install to set the drive letter is this possible Also I have the other drive unplugged at the moment so the SSD is the only one on I don't see any reason it would have set it as D Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
Is your XP64 on the same drive as your Win7 x64? I know seperate partitions, but it sounds like thers a problem with the MBR(master boot record) and windows 7 is unable to load the drivers it needs.
Image and try installing Windows 7 on the SSD by itself.
Attempting to install Windows 7 Ultimate on to a blank hard drive from the reinstallation DVD
Part way through the installation I get the following error message window:
Setup.exe - corrupt file
The file or directory \Boot \Fonts is correct and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.
I have run Chkdsk on the destination hard drive and it reports no errors.
Can anyone help me?
Did that Windows 7 Ultimate reinstallation DVD come with the same computer that the blank hard drive is in?
Hello, I'm new here I'm from Philippines, and I'm 19 years old. I just wanna know how to install Windows 7 Ultimate on my External HDD. First, I tried installing it but it prompts a warning message about BIOS or something I can't remember. Can anyone teach me or advice me what to do? My PC's OS now is Windows 7 Home Basic 32-bit, and I have a 2 GB RAM, and I don't have a video card. So, what should I do? I want to install Ultimate on my External HDD if possible. Hoping for your kind advice and teachings.
Win7 cannot be installed to an external HD.
Your best approach if you want to upgrade from Win7 basic is to use Windows Anytime Upgrade - How to - Windows 7 Forums which unlocks the few extra expensive features when you insert the Product Key.
But first I'd be sure that you actually need those features because most users don't, and otherwise it's the exact same OS: Compare Windows 7 Editions - Windows 7 Forums
Where did you get the Ultimate Product Key? Is it retail or Anytime Upgrade?
Hi, I have a problem on hand with Windows 7 Ultimate.
After installing the genuine pack of Windows 7 Ultimate my desktop PC performs very badly after sometime. Though the performance is good initially I find my PC slowing down with slow videos and music, hanging up every now and then. Also the CPU and RAM meter given by Windows 7 ultimate shows RAM usage at 70-80% and processor at 100%. My PC configuration is: Gigabyte 8I945GZME-RH motherboard, 2.80 gigahertz Intel Pentium D, 16 kilobyte primary memory cache, 2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache, Board: Bus Clock: 200 megahertz, ST380211AS [Hard drive] (79.88 GB, 1016 Megabytes Installed Memory. Any solutions for this?
Have you a TV card or something Windows MPlayer 12 can be offset with this as they take control of videos and this slows media player and somtimes crashes it if you attempt to play video (dvd) above about 3000kbs/sec.
More memory would be a good investment (On a 32 bit OS only 3.4 gb of memory is recognised approximately), you should use the same brand and latency for best results - BUT you will probably have problems getting memory for it now as that system your running is pretty old. I was running W7 ultimate on a laptop with 1024mb of memory but it didnt run too bad, but i found the cpu usage higher - seems to be aero was causing the problem as I returned to xp after a while and the cpu usage was down with media player for example. Your onboard graphics probably has the minimum amount of memory required for aero also. You can disable a lot of features if your not using them in Programs and Features - on the left side Turn Windows features on or off- eg IE8, Media Player, Media Centre, tablet pc, etc. You could also switch off services - download a guide - google or bing for it.
Try turning off aero and UAC might help also, but do so at your own risk with UAC - if you visit unsafe sites its best to leave it on. You could switch to Microsoft security essentials also, as it has less effect on performance than most antivirus malware programs.
I formatted my hard disk (it has two partitions) and installed Windows 7 Ultimate on one of the partitions.Then when I tried to start Windows 7 Ultimate it said that I must repair the Windows installation.I tried to repair with Windows repair disk the start up but Windows 7 Ultimate won't boot again and says "bootmgr is missing".I tried again to repair with the command prompt,to rebuild with "BOOTREC/REBUILDBCD but it still won't boot.It boots only if I change the Bios and make my DVD as the first booting device and put my Windows 7 DVD on it.If I put other disks it won't boot.Can anyone tell me a way of how to boot without the Windows 7 DVD on the drive.Thank you.
I would reinstall,
It sounds like your boot sector didnt build correctly.
Is the data on the other physical drives safe through an installation?
Hopefully this is not a completely unusual installation.
I have a
32GB SSD drive with the windows 7 evaluation build (7100) running well.
This was and will be my Windows 7 ultimate Installation drive and Boot disk.
Multiple other Sata drives previously used as Data Storage (MP3's, JPG's) AND program file installations for the evaluation period.
The question is, can I leave the current data directories in place and utilize them for the new installation? I'd rather leave the music and pictures in place.
I can always go back and clean out the old program folders I think....
Anyone out there have a clue?
Yes, your files should remain safely on other HD's during reinstall as if on an external. Of course, a second backup is extra insurance.
Suggest you place your programs on same HD as OS, since they have to be reinstalled anyway.

Clean Install Windows 7
That seems like the best way to get a fresh start as we don't know what all is going on right now. you do need to back up your stuff to a external media of some sort before doing that as everything on that harddrive will be wiped.
Once you are set up and going if you would like you can come back and we'll help you find any drivers you may be missing.

So why not just install Pro again ?
Where did you get the 32 bit Ultimate install dvd from ?
I've build a custom installation of WINDOWS 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
My installation is about 8,3GB and I had to burn it to a DVD Double Layer.
I want to install it to a UEFI system.
I went to BIOS and in the UEFI menu I see the Drive of DVD with the EUFI enabled, but when select this drive to start is begins to start Windows normally.
If I select to start the install from normal option it start to install withou UEFI.
I have burn the iso to a USB PEN and if select the the UEFI option It shows the option from starting the UEFI boot.
I have tried this in three diferent computers and is equal in all.
If I begin a installation with a DVD in UEFI mode it start OK.
IS this a DVD DL problem that cannot start in UEFI?
Are you following the steps for UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums?
If the unnecessary All-in-one DVD doesn't work correctly then download the ISO for the license you own and burn to DVD from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
To use flash stick also needs special steps for UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.
If UEFI doesn't work for you then you can always Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7

Hello , Maybe its a stupid question I recieved a Z600 desktop pc .2x Intel® Xeon® Processor E5606 4C 2.13 GHz, 80W, 8M cache,4.80 GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066MHzQuadro 4000And 8 gb ram I know i will not be able to run the latest games with those specs . But what if i would install for example 2x x5570 toghether with gpu gtx 750 or 760. Would i be able to play games like dark souls 3 , battlefield 4 , .... Is it still worth to put some little money in it , max 150euro ? Its just that i watched this video on youtube and he is able to play the witcher 3 ultra settings .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LfW366E9fw
That is still a great workstation, and you can upgrade it nicely. Read this entire thread, and be happy you have been gifted a "revision 1" motherboard that has higher capabilities than the original motherboard. Link is here. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/CPU-Upgrades/td-p/5... Google Z600 QuickSpecs, and the top one will be about version 7 but the next one will be about version 51. Those reflect the original versus revision 1 motherboard. The SSD I recommended in the above thread is the one to get. A fresh W7Pro64 is the way to go. You can upgrade processors, but if the Max TDP for the one(s) you want is over 95W then you need to make sure you have a "Perfomance" heatsink/fan over it. The search bar in this forum directs to this forum only. You'll need to spend some time. Note that you should only install a processor from the list in the QuickSpecs later versions to max out your performance, though you can use the older ones too. These are still new enough and in demand..... two fastest "revision 1" category processors will not be cheap even used off eBay.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z600/td-p/5590293

Have you tried using Device Manager to manually install the drivers? If you right click on the device in Device Manager and then click on "update drivers" you should see two options. The first option will search automatically for the driver, but the second option will allow you to browse your computer for the driver software. If you have the driver cd inserted you can then "Do a search for the driver in this location" and navigate to your cd drive. If the right driver is located on the cd, Windows should then "find" and install it for you.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/238302-windows-7-ultimate-x64-new-installation-no-devices-found.html

Got my 120GB SSD (First time),
Win 7 ultimate is now installed, up and running!
What are the things I can/should do to save up/optimize space? I know 120 isn't alot but that's what I could afford right now.
So far I've disabled/deleted the hibernate file (I never use hibernate on Desktop PC), that cleared up like 6 GB easy, anything else?
Btw, I have additional 1TB x2 HDDs installed where I will be installing programs/games I don't wish to take space of my SSD.
120 should be fine for most installations.
I have an 80 GB SSD and use only about 33, with about 60 applications installed.
The only other thing I can think of offhand is the page file. But really, I wouldn't bother unless you get up near 90 GB used.
You can use either Disk Cleanup or CCleaner to keep it maintained pretty well.
I received a German Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition with the HomeParty thingy Microsoft was sponsoring. But I want my Windows to be in English, so I downloaded the English Language Patch via Windows Update and installed it. Now everything is nicely in English AFTER I login.
Before login, it still says the German words for "Password", "Windows is starting up", "Windows is shutting down", "Windows is configuring updates", ...
Is there any way to completely patch it to English?
Thanks for your help!

The only way to do that is to use an English language version of the software. See if any of your friends have an English Ultimate DVD and reinstall using the key that came with your signature version.
I have a processor that is capable of handling a 64 bit operating system. Right now I am currently running a 32 bit operating system. Is there any way I could install 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate without erasing my entire operating system?

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Had a virus that caused me to have to reinstall win7, so I made room on my C partition and booted from my win7 CD.
All was fine until it came to the final stage "Completing installation"; at which point it froze. For over an hour. Eventually, I decided to reboot my computer as it was clear nothing was happening. As I expected, there was a disk check, but when I tried booting from the disk again, it freezes before any options come up.
As you can probably tell, I'm a bit of an amateur with computers, but please help!
Why did you not clean the HD Drive first?

3) It restarted and continue booting into the same USB
4) so I realize that I should change the boot priority to my HDD
5) I tired putting my HDD to first priority but it still boot to the installation USB
Removed USB at first restart.
6) So I decided to restore default settings in BIOS and "save & exit" (my mistake)
7) It rebooted but nothing happens, literally.
8) there is power, but the screen is blank (not black, no light at all)
9) I've tried to search for solutions such as inserting bootable devices such as USB or my Installation DVD, the machine will sound (attempting to run) for a while but die down and a state of clam resumes.
10) I've also tried holding the power button for 60second when power is unplugged then plug in and press power button but it did not work as well.

I had a retail version of the genuine edition of Windows 7 Ultimate edition, but I threw away the disk upon moving. However I do still have the CD key for it.
I'm wondering how I can do a reformat of the hard drive without a CD/DVD. If there's an official ISO file out there anywhere, I could just enter my CD key again.
I have no way of getting to the desktop right now because of BSOD on boot (please see my other thread if you can help!), so any solutions that involves actually logging into windows will not work for me.
Thank you guys so much

Help and Support
After days of trying to search google for help, I have stumpled upon sevenforums and decided to post. So, recently, my hard drive became defective, and my computer would not boot unless I unplugged it, so I replaced it with another old spare hard drive (that works). Because of this, I have to reinstall windows again, and I have already formatted it.
During step 2 of the installation, the step after "copying files", I get this message :
"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart. Error Code x080070570".
I tried this same CD on a virtual machine, and it works fine. Also tried resetting bios to default, but doesn't work either. I deleted all the partitions, except 1, but to no avail.
A shot in the dark here, do you need to load any drivers for the DVD/CD player?
I have a HDD + DVDRW attached to an PCIe<->SATAII addin card and I can start the boot from the DVDRW but after I get past the Loading files section if I do not load the SATA driver I loose connection to both the HDD & the DVDRW
I get around the problem by attaching a USB DVDRW drive just for the boot process
Alright I'm trying to do a custom installation of windows 7 ultimate, after finding out my computer won't boot. But then it says there were no drivers found. Where do I find my drivers? There is only an X: (boot) drive as a system partition.
I have an Acer Aspire V3-551 with an AMD A8 2.8 Ghz processor with 500 GB of HDD space and 4 GB DDR3. I am have been running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my computer.
Are you talking about drivers or drives?
Windows will detect 99.9% of the appropriate drivers required for your computer to operate during installation, and install them automatically. After installation, you can install/update specific device drivers if you wish.

Hi, when I tried to install Itunes, I get these 2 error messages, are these related to Registry or is purely an Itunes issue?
Thanks for your time.
I have iTunes installed on my Win 7 system.
When you download from iTunes, are you "saving" the download or are you click on "Run"? Save the download first and then install it. I don't think iTunes requires Quicktime to be on the PC first, but that is an option.

i've got a new to me z600 workstation. Looking to upgrade it for video editing. Currently it's running windows XP pro, looking to upgrade that. Currently it has a X5550 chipset( single) 3gb ramCurrently it's running dual 160gb hd's Looking to upgrade the CPU's dual processors, largest possible. and max out ram (24gb) What should I use?Hard drive, looking to install a SSD Any help is appreciated
I am working on a Z600 project right now, so this is timely. You will need to use the search box on this page upper left area, which searches this forum only. 1. First step is to see if you have an original motherboard or the later "revision 1" motherboard. Best way to tell is if you look up the boot block date in BIOS, under the first tab. The boot block date tells you if you have original or revision 1 most easily. 2. Assuming it is the better later motherboard, then you need to find the latest Z600 QuickSpecs.... its in the 50s, maybe 51 or 58. From that you can look at the HP supported processors. Your memory should be the faster 1333 type but most of those processors listed there run slower than that. 3 run at the faster speed which will let your memory run faster too. You can choose from those 3 for the best heavy lifting. Note that the fastest quad core is faster than the fastest hexacore. So, if you want raw speed I'd bet the quad core would serve you well. If you want 12 rather than 8 total cores then go with the fastest hexacore. I use the Noctua thermal paste. We have had good success with used processors off eBay for these types of workstation upgrades. 3. You'll want 2 processors, and you'll want to match to the heatsink/fan you already have. 4. I believe you don't need a "performance" heatsink for 95 watt processor.... the motherboard wants one for processors that are over 95 watts, from my reading. There is a way to spoof a motherboard into thinking it has a performance heatsink attached when it only is a mainstream, by the way. 5. SSDs.... I have been very pleased with the Intel 320 series 300GB SSD that you can get off eBay. We use a lot of those.... rock solid, and the Intel Toolbox is great for tuning it. That workstation is a SATA Gen II one, and HP warns against using SATA Gen III HDDs in those unless they are sourced from HP (assume special HP firmware applied). We have not seen a comment from HP on whether this rule holds also for SSDs, but I am assuming so. Hence, I choose to use that particular SSD, and also have used HP-sourced Gen III SSDs in our SATA Gen II workstations with zero problems. The Intel 320 series SSD is a SATA Gen II drive with enterprise features, and has served us very well. Even used off eBay they almost always have had 100% life left in them. I update their firmware as needed via the Intel Toolbox. 6. We use W7Pro64 mostly, but I have been pleased with the W10Pro64 OS. You can upgrade to W10Pro64 for free at this time, so I have been "W10 activating" all my xw and Z workstations and having that ready for the future, but still mainly running them with W7Pro64. Once your box is W10 activated you can install W10 anytime later. You certainly want a 64 bit OS. 7. You need a second processor to take advantage of the second set of 3 memory slots..... ideally you'll run with 6 x 1GB, 6 x 2GB, or 6 x 4GB. The sweet spot for $/GB is with the 2GB sticks. Having them all the same size gets you a speed benefit too.... Look at official HP sticks for that on eBay and you also can find the same codes from other vendors such as Dell. I consider the HP sticks the best because they have been "binned" for quality. 8. HP just came out with a new BIOS for the Z600. It is best to update BIOS from within BIOS. I have gathered best HP driver sets for W7Pro64 from later HP workstation sources and they load fine on the Z600, but for W10 I've been using what comes from the autoload from MS. 9. I like to add in a quality eSATA backplane adapter to the bottom opening for fast backup and Acronis image captures. I also like to add one of the TI-based HP USB3 cards into the top PCIe slot, and am working on a nice use of that ...

Bob, Correct Prefix of these processors is (x5650, x5660 and X5675) Model No Part No x5650 WG731AA x5660 WG732AA X5675 LB215AA I have also mentioned technical information below what these prefix's means, Letter Prefix:X = PerformanceE = Mainstream (rack mount)L = Power OptimizedW = Workstation for up to 2 processors per motherboard. The letters also refer to the power consumption figures of the CPUs in question. Note that the numbers associated with the letters are for the "Nehalem"-based Xeon family and older Xeons that use the letter designations have different TDP values associated with the letters. L = Thermal design power (expected power draw with a 100% CPU load running normal software) of 60 watts or less. These are the "low voltage" chips. E = TDP of 80 watts. Intel refers to the Xeon 5500/5600s with this letter prefix as the "basic" line and as a result, the idle power draw on these chips is frequently worse than any of the other series of chips, despite the other chips possibly having a higher full-load power draw. X = TDP of 95 watts. These are the "premium" mainstream chips as their TDP is not so excessive that they are difficult to cool in a rack server, yet their idle power consumption is far lower than the E-series chips. W = TDP of 130 watts and higher. These are the fastest, hottest Xeons made and they are designed to be used in workstations and pedestal servers with better cooling than an average 1U or 2U rack server. ========================================================Although I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.========================================================**Click the KUDOS star on the left to say 'Thanks'**http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z600-CPU-upgrade/td-p/5053635

Hi apologies in advance - I'm sure this has been discussed before but a Ultimate Vista my installation to How minimise size? 64bit quick search didn't turn How to minimise my Vista Ultimate 64bit installation size? up any similar threads feel free to just reply with a useful link I'm just doing a new install of MS Vista Ultimate bit on a GB Samsung ssd I have a TB hdd to use for bulk storage and games and an external TB drive in a caddy too - so storage space is not an issue However even before WIndows Update has finished it's most recent bout my install is running at a staggering GBs All I've installed so far is Windows itself all the hardware drivers and Firefox a few plugins And WU is still downloading stuff as I type this What I'd like to know is what I can do to shrink this massive install size down a bit I have turned off System Restore but haven't restarted yet WU is taking hours at the moment literally Will leaving this off help Do I also have to manually delete the backup restore file image too There is another biggish file called hiberfil sys iirc That is for when I put the PC into hibernation - I don't usually ever do that Can I delete this and or turn off the hibernate function safely Again do I have to manually remove the actual file folder or will Windows do that on restart perhaps Supposedly there is are folder s with tons of excess drivers that MS included with Vista but which I don't need - how big is this and can it be safely deleted Likewise what happens to all the update files that Windows Update will pull down off the net all the time Does MS clean up after itself or can I find and remove those that aren't needed Anything else I can do that people recommend
OK, slight update... I found a windows(old) folder! So that got deleted. From a past failed install, could have sworn I'd installed to a clean, freshly formatted drive - but I guess not. Anyway that is about 5GBs that's now gone... So, 'just' 26GBs currently (but still increasing...)
I can't tell if turning off System Restore made a difference though.

Ahh, I just recently purchased Ultimate (the real deal) and it's stuck at one point of the installation. It says: "Setup cannot find Ultimater.WW\UltimaterWW.msi. Browse to a valid installation source, and then click OK". I located the folder Ultimater.WW, but it isn't working, instead it says "Invalid location", plus I checked the folder and I found UltimaterWW (Windows Installer Package) Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm currently in the installation process, but it's not moving any where because of this damn error.
Like I said, any help would be great.. Thanks!
*Edit: didn't realize the business application section, so feel free to move this to there*
I bought this package from the Ultimate Steal I got the Download which is the exe file Now when I double-clicked on this instead of Microsoft Office Ultimate Problems 2007 Installation coming up with the box whis says quot run quot etc straight away Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Installation Problems it literally loads the little blue circle thing going round and round lol for about minutes Finally the box will come up It will then take ages for the box toc ome up which says to give permissions as admin Once it did thsi it installed fine Everything seemed fine until I tried Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Installation Problems to use Microsoft Word with an image in the document As soon as I tried to save it would say quot not responding quot and freeze for about minutes Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Installation Problems and then eventually save The typing etc would also be slow in the document if there was an image present and other programmes which were open such as Internet Explorer would also be slow Today I un-installed Microsoft Office I am wanting to know whether I should use the same exe file which I have saved on desktop or whether I should try and download it again Could I contact Microsoft for support and will it be free Thank you PS My OS is Windows Vista -bit nbsp
if its a legal copy, you should be able to contact microsoft with the issues, and have them assist you. i believe in owning the cd's, and have not downloaded any exe's from ultimate steal, so i cannot confirm the actual file specs. i myself am always wary of downloading exe files. the only thing i could recommend is to patch office after install, and see if that helps, or, contact microsoft.

I get blue screens after installation of windows,, can som1 tell me n troubleshoot why Its happening?
Can you get into Windows? If you can, right click Computer and select properties. In the left pane select system protection and then click the advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery click the settings tab. Uncheck Automatically restart, restart and then write down the error.
I take it this is a brand new build? Have you run memtest to see if your RAM is borked?

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Hi guys i m hoping someone can help I ve recently bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite pro L running Windows After a few weeks things started to get really slow Then I woke up one morning to discover it stuck on the first screen when I turn it on I thought I had a virus so then decided to do a full re-format and re-install windows After I formatted the correct partition I went hard drive of Windows during Ultimate 7 Can't find installation to install Windows again Only for it to say quot windows could not detect a disc drive quot it asks me to install drivers for the hard-drive which I can t seem to find it s a sata hard-drive TOSHIBA MK GSX I think is the model number I can not find the hard-drive drivers anywhere The other strange thing is every now and then it Can't find hard drive during installation of Windows 7 Ultimate finds the hard-drive but states that windows can not install onto that drive even when I format it try to add a partition and so forth I have been into bios I don t really know a great deal of what I am looking at but it sometimes states my hard-drive is there and other times it does not I am so desperate to get this fixed Does anyone Can't find hard drive during installation of Windows 7 Ultimate have any ideas I live pretty remotely so taking it back and getting it fixed is not ideal but maybe necessary Thanks in anticipation - Gavin nbsp
It sounds like a hard drive problem. Try this switch of the laptop and remove the battery then remove the hard drive, then replace hard drive battery and switch on your laptop.
I bought long time ago Windows 7 Home edition (FPP license) - non english and afterwards when I realized that it does not support more than 16GB RAM, I decided to buy WAU upgrade to Ultimate version.
I need to know, if it is possible to create or download legally just the Ultimate version with english language and use my KEY.
When I reinstall windows, then I have to do upgrade to Ultimate and then add english language package which is not translating everything. I don't like this. I would prefer just one instalation of Ultimate with english language and use my key.
Thanks for any help.

I solved this problem by nuking my hard drive and reinstalling Vista to the entire 250GB partition. It worked the first time.
I still don't know what caused the freezing in the first place, but Vista's working wonderfully now. I guess it just doesn't like to share.

Hi there, I just did a brand new installation of a Win7 Ultimate 7 Lite on my Netbook which full details have been specificated at the time of registration.
Since then the Windows Updates is continuosly searching updates for my OS without giving me any results at all.
If I check at the list of the installed updates is empty; looked at the log file hereby attached, downloaded the kb2479628.msu file but when I try to install it it start looking for installed upates on my computer giving me again no reply at all, and keeping is searching on.
What is supposed I should do in order to "unblock" the Windows Updates software?
I dont know if the coder who made the lite version has somehow disabled the Windows Updates functionality.
Waiting for any help I remain.
Tks so much in advance n regards.
Do you own a genuine copy of Windows 7 Ultimate?http://www.sevenforums.com/windows-updates-activation/399600-brand-new-installation-w7-ultimate-lite-updates-takin-4-ever.html
Hi,I would like to know if I can install a Geforce GTX 1080 in a z600 workstation?My power supply is 650W so that seems to be enough. I have 2 * 6 pin connector so I guess I can add an adapter to 8 pin. Would this work? Thanks.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z600-amp-Geforce-GTX-1080/td-p/5846991
Hey there! I got a later spec Z600 WS here that came with dual X5650 (TDP 95W).I made a good deal and got two X5680 (TDP 130W), and tryed to install those to the WS.System tells me, that the CPU installed needs too much power, and the System got halted. Is it a Problem with the Heatsink, because of the fact, it is to small (for TDP <95W), or is itrealy the mainboard, that just can't take the X5680 Xeons?I googled a lot and found some Z600 running on those CPUs, so what's the deal? I already tryed to bridge Pin 1 and 5 of the Heatsink-Fan Connector to simulate a Performance Heatsink,just to test if it would boot, but that did'nt work.
First, I don't see your new processor type listed in the latest QuickSpec for the Z600 I looked up this morning..... version 51, which lists your current X5650 but not the X5680. There is a hot X5647 listed (at 130W max TDP) but the other higher performance processors are all 95W. So, there must have been a 130W cooling option for the Z600, and I'd presume it is the same as used for the Z800 (see below). Also, the Z600 must be able to provide 130W to each of its two processor sockets. I checked with the Z800 QuickSpecs (v56) and don't see the X5680 listed there either. The latest QuickSpecs, however, often do not list all processors that were listed previously. The now-unlisted ones will still work, and you can go back through the HP QuickSpec archives for your Z600 to see if the X5680 was ever officially listed. If it was then it surely should work. A HP engineer I trust fully has let me know that there are some cases in which a processor that was never officially listed will work. Let's just say that will be a rare exception. Maybe you have found one of those processors? The X5680 processor has only one sSpec code, SLBV5, and can be bought new now from Intel for $1663.00 each. On eBay you can buy that processor today for about $200.00 each, USD, used. It is encouraging that you can get to the point of boot that the motherboard rejects your heatsink/fan combination, because my experience with truly non-listed processors is that they won't even get to that level. Flat zero progression into boot. So, I'd buy one of the "Performance" heatsink/fans from eBay, and the Alan guys there have almost 450 in stock at a fair price, new. That is a US source, and I have bought from them in the past many times, with never a problem. Buy one for about $50 and test with that and a single X5680 in place. The wiring trick..... that jumper wire should work if HP is using the same motherboard sensing method for detecting presence of a performance heatsink/fan as was used in the xw8600, but who knows? This performance boost is worth spending $50.00 more on at this stage of the game to get an official Performance heatsink/fan to experiment with. For example, perhaps HP added to the motherboard the ability to detect the larger 92x92x15mm heatsink fan rather than the regular heatsink's 80x80x15mm fan. Take a look at this link, for more details on the Performance heatsink/fan that I believe you need. Those have been available on eBay for a fair price, new and you can find that via searching for part numbers 463991-001 and 535588-001: Z800 Performance heatsink larger fan Here's a picture of the performance heatsink/larger fan for the Z800, and likely exactly what you need for your Z600 project. All my references indicate these are identical, but the Z400 performance fan is different. Note how this heatsink/fan is shifted leftward on its mounting plate, when viewed from front (the fan side). The Z400 performance heatsink/fan is not shifted leftwards because it is a single socket motherboard and has a fair amount of room around it on both right and left sides. Thus, the performance Z400 heatsink/fan will not fit on the primary socket of a Z600 but this one below will. The performance Z400 heatsink/fan will however fit on the secondary socket of a Z600 with a little bending down of its rear air deflector plate at its bottom. You can see pictures of that Z400 performance heatsink/fan elsewhere in the forum. I'd make sure you have the latest BIOS installed, and also confirm in BIOS that you have the latest revision of the motherboard by checking the boot block date. It sounds like you'll have already done all that. If one of those X5680 processors works then the other will ...

I have just upgraded to windows 7 (from Vista) and now I can't print. I have a Lexmark Z600 and although I did have problems getting the driver loaded & working with Vista, it did finally work. After upgrading to windows 7, I reloaded the printer driver to no avail. I even deleted it and went out and found the latest driver available for my printer and still no help. Any ideas ?
I gave up trying with my X74 All-in-one in the end.
Lexmark website was very definite XP was last driver release.
I never had vista.
Bought Canon MP 250 All-in-One then from Argos at £34.99 which I am very happy with. Although I dont do an awful lot of printing.
And mostly convert colour web pages to print in Grayscale.
(to save on colour cartridges)
The printer is quite noisy at start of printing as it resets heads and loads a page of paper, but quiet enough during printing.
Hello guys,I bought a used hp z600 six month ago and it works perfectly so far. However, i realized that the blue led of the power button doesnt work and has never been on in my machine.

Hi, Description explains it all, I've been thinking of replacing my current HDD for a SSD. I haven't done much researching on this myself but thought I would check here just encase there's any known issues/pit falls with installing a ssd into z600 workstation, I will be looking at adding a 1TB ssd. 1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ? 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations? 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks? Any info would be appreciated, Griff
Installed a Samsung Evo 500gb SATA III into my z600..and it works perfectly. Installed it last week and have been installing programs and having general use from it with no problems. I wanted to test it properly before posting a response. It could be possible that i experience issues with it later, but I would of thought that if it had any issues I would know about it by now. My SSD reads at 282 MB/s and writes at 270 MB/s - Random Read 51612 (IOPS) Random Write (IOPS) 47395. Being a SATA II gen workstation its not reaching the SSD's full potential at 540/520 Mb/s read write but from what I've read you wouldn't even notice the difference its so fast.. and I agree CC suite, mozilla, (haven't installed 3dsmax yet) all boot in seconds compared to minutes on old HDD. Just to note I didn't use a HP recovery disk to reinstall OS. I used an official windows 7 .iso and booted from USB (even though it some has some useful things, i didn't want HP bloatware) Drivers installed perfectly without a hitch. Windows serial on bottom of tower 1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ?" Via Scott's comments, look for the 'needs-tool' version in the post's above, mine cost £8.50 and takes all of 5 seconds to fit the ssd to the z600. I wouldn't sugguest buying the tool-less version.. unless you have no hands and lots of money." 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations?"Yes they're HP approved SSDs detailed in the post's above, but I've had no issue with consumer grade SSD, but you roll the dice with which brand. The Samsung EVO 500gb, no problems. You can use SATA III ssd's but you can get issues as warned by HP as their firmware doesn't support some types (so basically if it doesn't work they wont help you) ". 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks?"Make sure your BIOS is set to RAID+AHCI (Mine was already setup like this). I used the samsung magician tool after install and it will say that your PC is not set to AHCI, but i just ignore it. As long as BIO's and firmware are up to date you will be fine. Use a blindmate formfactor to install the ssd (see above posts). Make sure you get the latest firmware on a usb before you install SSD, it should be the first thing to check after installing the SSD. You don't need to change SATA cables from II to III as the cables are backwards compatible.. either way having a SATA III in a z600 will just limit you to SATA II speeds (which compared to a normal HDD are ridiculously quick). Just plug-in and install OS. It may be worth reading up on SSD optimistation, the samsung magician advises some things to do but not all neccessary, its either lifespan over performance.. defintely worth reading up on, if this is your first SSD as it was for me." Hands down best upgrade i've done to my workstation, and very simple to do. I'm glad I waited for better support and for the cost to go down on SSD's before using them. Want to say a big thanks to Scott Harrison for his help on this subject. I pestered him lots but have really appreciated his guidance! cheers Scott and anyone else who posted help. Enjoy your SSD, I will. Griffhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/installing-a-SSD-into-Z600-Workstation/td-p/5081717
I would like to know if the Z600 will support the 3.1 USB adapter card and if so, what do I need for an installation?
Agree.... that card should work in a Z600, but will it work to the USB 3.1 10Gbps speed standard? No. The HP Z600 workstation has no PCIe generation 3 slots. It has 3 PCIe Gen2 slots, 1 PCIe Gen1 slot, and 2 PCI slots. Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z600's slots: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01719695 Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added: "The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. PCI Express Gen 1.0 max throughput is 2.5Gbps. PCI Express Gen 2.0 max throughput is 5Gbps. PCI Express Gen 3.0 max throughput is 10Gbps. The available bandwidth (10Gbps) is shared equally between the two ports." These USB 3.0/USB 3.1 PCIe cards generally need power supplementation.... the +5VDC they need does not come up from the slot, but it is easy to find a 4-wire "molex" peripheral-to-SATA power adapter which can provide you the higher wattage 5VDC they need to meet potential power draws (versus what USB 2.0 needs). All this info came from research figuring out how to add the Texas Instruments based HP USB 3.0 card to our xw6600 workstations, which have 2 PCIe Gen2 slots (the rest are Gen1). Z620 gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots.... slots 2,4 and 5. Here's the Z600 slots diagram:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Usb-3-1-adapter-in-a-Z600-workstation/td-p/5693335

Ladies, gents, I recently got a refurbished Z600 workstation and immediately noticed that the chipset fan is always running at approx. 2,500 rpm, even right after a cold boot and when idling. I can't image that this is normal - all the temperatures are fine, so I see no reason for the fan to spin this high. I know that it is a small fan which needs the high rpm to create sufficient air flow, but 2,500 rpm seems excessive. Has anybody experienced this before? Is this in fact the normal idle speed for the chipset fan (as the seller's customer service wants to make me believe)?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Z600-Chipset-Fan-Always-Running-on-High-RPM/td-p/5592042

The Z600 QuickSpecs indicates you can only have a single high end graphics card in the Z600. That is either one Quadro 4000 (142W) card or one Quadro 5000 (152W) card or one FirePro V7900 (<150W) card can be installed in the Z600. However, you can have two Quadro 2000 (62W) cards or two FirePro V5800 (74W) cards or two FirePro V5900 (<75W) cards in the system as this is supported (not that this will help with your graphics processing needs). The Z600 Maintenance and Services Guide also states you can have one 150W graphics card in either PCIe slot 2 or 4 (leaving the adjacent slot empty) OR you can have 2 75W graphics cards in PCIe slot 2 and 4. So SLI or crossfire is not a supported configuration with high end 3D cards due, in part to the 650W 80% efficient HP proprietary PSU used in the Z600 (which can't supply the needed power) and in part to the lack of system cooling validation for these more powerful 'heaters'. And as the HP PSU is a proprietary design, it is not a simple swap to an of the shelf standard ATX supply. Some cabling modifications would be needed and it still may not mechanically fit or work (as others have experienced no boot issues when attempting to use a modified standard ATX swap in their HP workstation - some have even damaged their system board so be warned). As for mixing cards in SLI configuration, IIRC, Nvidia allows mixing cards from the same family. So, presumably a Q4000 & Q5000 would work as would a GeForce 760 with a Titan, should the PSU have supported the load (which it doesn't). Mixing Q4000 with GeForce Titan in SLI configuration will fail as they would be considered a different family. And you can't use a Quadro driver with a GeForce card or a GeForce driver with Quadro card which creates a driver issue if you try such SLI mixes. So you may need to buy a more capable system (or do some development work to find a more powerful HP PSU you can fit into the Z600 or instead modify a standard ATX PSU to fit and resolve any issues this creates while also modifying the Z600 chassis cooling system to better cope with the extra heat). Good luck. [edited to add underlined text]http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z600-graphic-card-upgrade/td-p/5054360

I don't know the exact positon of the CMOS RESET switch, but you can remove the battery to set BIOS defaults.Don't forget to unplug the power cord, no need to remove the power supply or graphics card.Put back the battery after a few minutes and power on the machine.Video should be back now and all BIOS settings (including time and date) are lost.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z600-cannot-reset-cmos-after-enabling-compute/td-p/5065741

Changed nothing and the issue went away.Had a 4 hour power failure in the building.When power was restored machine automatically rebooted.So pulling plug on Z600, machine doesn't auto-boot.Power fail entire building: router, monitor, Z600 and machines boots.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/Z600-workstation-won-t-auto-boot-after-power-loss/td-p/5464151
Hello,I recently acquired a z600 with a quad core Intel Xeon E550 and I would like to know if it is possible/desirable to put my old z400 two quad core Intel Xeon W3550.I checked and both use socket b type soo I'd assume I should have a problem but as hardware is outside of my knowledge base I wanted to ask =)Thank you in advance
Hi, The z600 series of workstations support Intel Xeon Processor X5570 QC 2.93 GHz, 95W, 8M cache, 6.40GT/s QPI, DDR3 1333 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor X5560 QC 2.80 GHz, 95W, 8M cache, 6.40GT/s QPI, DDR3 1333 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor X5550 QC 2.66 GHz, 95W, 8M cache, 6.40GT/s QPI, DDR3 1333 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor E5540 QC 2.53 GHz, 80W, 8M cache, 5.86GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor E5530 QC 2.40 GHz, 80W, 8M cache, 5.86GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor E5520 QC 2.26 GHz, 80W, 8M cache, 5.86GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066 MHz, HT, TurboIntel Xeon Processor E5506 QC 2.13 GHz, 80W, 4M cache, 4.80GT/s QPI, DDR3 800 MHzIntel Xeon Processor E5504 QC 2.00 GHz, 80W, 4M cache, 4.80GT/s QPI, DDR3 800 MHzLooks like they support CPU's with 80W to 95W. The Intel Xeon W3550 has TDP 130W . http://ark.intel.com/products/39720/Intel-Xeon-Processor-W3550-8M-Cache-3_06-GHz-4_80-GTs-Intel-QPI I don't think this is going to work.

HP Z600 & Z800 Workstations support Nvidia Quadro M4000 8GB Grpahic Card? Can the defual power supply hand the wattage from the new GPU's? Currently running Nvidia Quadro FX4800 graphic card.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z600-amp-Z800-Workstations-support-Nvidia-Quadro-M4000/td-p/5614092
I have a Z600 that came with an REV #003 motherboard and two X5670 CPU's. The board went bad and I replaced it with a REV #001, not realizing that it won't run X56xx chips. So I then purchased two X5570 CPU's and put them in. When I boot, I get a series of 8 beeps, and an error message that the BIOS is corrupt. So I created a BIOS recovery disc and flashed the machine as per the instructions. I then unplug the power cord (as opposed to powering down first), wait 5 seconds and plug it back in a power up. I then get the 8 beeps and the error message just like nothing has been done to fix it. Is it possible that trying to run X56xx chips on that board fried something? Is there a way to reset it? What should I try next? Thanks.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/Z600-Bios-Image-Corrupt-ROM-flash-doesn-t-work/td-p/5599283
