Preferred Solution: Problems Booting and Installing Windows

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.)

So you/your friend dont have the windows 7 installer disk or haven't created a repair disk ?

At that situation you may download Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs — The NeoSmart Files .

Download the appropriate disk image that you need in this situation, burn it in a disk , and boot it up .... then follow these tutorials .

These tutorials should work .

Hello people I have ran into a problem when installing a new SSD I m not able to fix it myself so please hear me out if you are able to help Yesterday I bought a new SSD I did already have one but it s only GB All my software is installed on a Sata Hard Drive disk My plan was to swap the old SSD with the new and then figure out a way to transfer my software from the hard drive to the SSD because that would make my pc SSD after problems installing Booting new alot faster But now my pc won t boot anymore This is what happened So first of all before I even Booting problems after installing new SSD bought the new SSD Samsung EVO GB I checked if it were possible and opened my pc I don t know why I did this but I removed the cables SATA and power from my old SSD cache There was nothing important saved on this SSD anyway only a little video game But luckily my pc was still working fine I could boot it and everything was the same except Drive D being gone All my files were saved the other drive Drive C the hard drive I turned my pc off and plugged the cables back in My Booting problems after installing new SSD pc would boot and Drive D with the little game was back Today I got the new SSD I swapped it with the old one I used the same Sata power cables from my old SSD for the new But then my pc wouldn t boot anymore This suprised me because the pc is supposed to boot from the Hard Drive and my pc did also still work when I unplugged my old SSD yesterday and plugged it back in As far as I m concerned I didn t touch the hard drive cables at all Perhaps I unknowingly hit other cables when placing the SSD bracket So I obviously removed the new SSD because my pc wasn t working anymore since I placed it But still my pc isn t booting So my theory is that I must have hit another cable accidently I have also read today that static electricity from your body can make some components defect But I m not sure if this is the case because the motherboard is still working since I can go into the BIOS And it does recognize both the hard drive and SSD in the advanced menu When I boot the pc I get the Acer screen and after that I m brought to the Windows Recovery menu I tried multiple things like resetting my pc but that wouldn t work I tried fixing the problem myself but without luck The sata cable from the hard drive and SSD might be swapped because I can t remember which cable belonged to which drive There is also a power cable left in the pc but I don t think that it matters which power cable I use for the drives because they are all the same I also messed around in the BIOS in the boot menu But after that I changed everything back to what it used to be I also tried to recover my pc from the Windows recovery menu I ll provide a bunch of screenshots of the BIOS settings and the hardware of my pc below Remember that I m not sure whether the red sata cable belongs to the SSD or HDD if it even makes a difference http prntscr com a hw j Inside my pc http prntscr com a hx a Bios Advanced Misc http prntscr com a hz Bios Advanced Integrated peripherals menu remember http prntscr com a hz Authentication menu http prntscr com a hzha Boot options http prntscr com a hzoh This is what happens when I boot my pc http prntscr com a hzuj http prntscr com a i q I m not sure anymore what to do I perhaps shouldn t have messed with the pc but I didn t think that calling an expert was neccessary I ve also got a very basic understanding of the computer hardware components so I may be able to fix it myself But help of you guys is very much appreciated Sincerly Dirk nbsp

I have tried installing windows 7 on my vista machine on a seperate partition, but once all setups are complete and win 7 is ready to load, the bootloader won't come up.

This is my friends win 7 disk and he claims to have installed it several times on a clean hard disk.
To get back into vista, I had to begin reinstalling windows 7, then before i boot into it for the first time to let it configure i went onto vista and formatted / removed entry in boot loader.

I have also tried running the "are you ready for windows 7?" application and it was fine with it.

I'm currently using my vista disk to system restore and get some luck out of that, but otherwise, I have no idea. Can anyone provide some advice?

Ok so the title explains it all. The booting time for any windows installation takes way too long. Does anyone know a fix for this. If there is none, its not that much of a big deal. But a fix would be nice. Also some windows programs take a while to also boot up their installation, like office 07.

A:Stucked at booting windows 7 due to errors in Installing

You can boot to a command prompt using you W7 install disc. Command Prompt at Startup

After getting to the command prompt, you need to run Diskpart with the Clean option. Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Next boot with the W7 disc and start the install.

A:laptop not booting after recently installing windows 10

treasureplant41 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about your laptop no longer booting in Win10 and wanted to help.There's no telling how much damage you did by removing the power adapter, so let's hope the simple fix will work -- repairing the boot loader files. To do this, you will need access to a working PC for this step in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.Once you have that, please download and create Win10 install media from this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10Note that when you go do download and build install media, the tool defaults to matching what is already installed on your PC (as in, Home for Home, 64-bit for 64-bit).  While you CAN change these settings, do NOT. If you do, the resulting media will be different and will force you to enter a NEW product code!Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2294-advanced-startup-options-boot-windows-10-a.htmlYou will need to go to the Advanced Options screen and click on Startup Repair.  You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.If your PC then boots OK, you're good to go.  IF it does NOT boot, then more damage was done than the boot loader files. And, in that case, you would have to completely reinstall Win10 to get the PC working again, and while you CAN do that from the Win10 media you already made, since you can't boot into Windows, your only option is a clean-install, and THAT will erase everything on the PC and start clean.  So, the problem there is that you would have to copy off the files and data you want to save to an external drive or USB stick before you did the reinstall.Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Just install the operating system as usual, and when installing programs go into the advanced install options and change the location to where you install your program.

Hello...I will start from the begining .

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.

I was trying to install a ubuntu distribution to my primary hard drive (along side Windows 7) and at 99% of copying files the setup reported there was not sufficient memory to install backtrack. I cannot boot back into windows 7 as the computer resets before getting past the boot screen (shows 'starting windows' as normal then the screen blacks and takes me back to BIOS).
this process loops unless I select windows repair option, which does not fix the problem.
The Backtrack live CD won't let me delete the new, half-installed partition, so therefore I cannot change the windows partition back to it's usual (small) size of 55GB.

All help would be appreciated as I need windows on my PC for work

Thank you to all in advance.

My lenovo laptop with windows 10 won't load up. It continually goes to the blue screen of death, showing 0xc000007b . It once showed driver power state failure, and I entered safe mode and uninstalled two drivers. Automatic repair doesn't work, system restore doesn't work, I've tried resetting whilst keeping my personal files, but the reset always fails halfway through. I'm not tech savvy so I don't have any special disks or anything - my laptop doesn't even have a disk port - so I have no idea what to do. The same thing happened yesterday but it started randomly working again later that night. Does anyone know what to do??

I had to do a hard restart, but then it worked, although it was a lot slower than the 1st time i installed windows. I know you probably have tried many restarts.
Is this a retail disc, or a burned disc?

Hi !

How can be possible, that over night my both machines with windows 10 pro and home 64bit versions, won't boot anymore and i'm stuck.
Both machines have clean install, latest updates installed, everything is fresh installed.
I didn't have any problems before and been using windows 10 on both computers quite some time now.
I was trying to repair windows with system restore, but ofcourse, no system restore is found,
on windows 10 pro version i can choose windows 10 and then restore, was trying to do restore, but didn't finished, just with error message.
On home version i didn't have any choice to select operating system , hard drive locked, so no system restore option, nothing...
strange indeed.

A:Windows 10 booting problems

i figured out, after i re-install everything, that this was cause of messing with permission settings for local disk, but i don't remember such a situation at windows 8.1 before and i was doing the same thing.

A:Problems with Windows 7 booting

Welcome!

I'm no expert in GRUB, so unfortunately, I can't give you instructions for dual booting with Linux.

However, I can tell you how to repair the Windows 7 installation.

First, mark your Windows partition as active: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...on-active.html

Then, run bootrec /fixmbr, bootrec /fix boot, and bootrec /rebuildbcd.

That should do the trick.

Good luck!

Hi,

I recently made a thread about how to install Windows 7 and 10 on different hard drives and on the same PC. I already had windows 10 installed so I unplugged hdd with windows 10 and connected the ssd that I wanted to install 7. I successfully installed windows 7 and 10 on both ssd and hdd and connected both in. I boot it up and pressed F12. Booted up in Windows 10 and it was Ok . Restarted and booted Windows 7 and it was not OK.

When I booted up to Windows 7, I get a black screen and then on the top of my screen, i start to get some color pixels. Maybe I'll get a screenshot later but had to do a hard reset. I unplugged the hdd for windows 10 and it booted windows 7 just fine.

Any ideas?

A:Problems with booting Windows 7

Dual boot 7/10 on an oem, as it uses the same activation key, you can ONLY lgeitamately use that key on 1 OS.
Its more than likely that the boot option is skewed.

I believe that it has to do with your power supply unit and not with Windows. It can be quite old and that's why it causes problems. Try posting in the hardware forums, you may find more information there!

With the upgraded graphics and sound cards, you may want to go higher that 450w. I would suggest atleast a 650w PSU.

A:Problems with Windows Booting

The odds of booting a system to an external drive are slim to none, even if you set the bios and it allowed that kind of boot. Best thing you can do is take the drive out and find someone with a working computer to set it as a slave to their system and copy off what is important. Then run your restore disks.

Hi everyone, I am looking for a little help.

I have two hdd on the computer, the first one is a 40gb that has windows installed on it. Drive 0
the 2nd is a 400gb drive used to hold movies. Drive 1

if I have both of the drives enables, xp gets to the black screen with the windows image and then just sits there. when I restart and press f12 and run diagnostics it says there is an error with drive 1 (the 400gb).

If I disable that drive then restart I am able to boot the system with no problem but now have no access to the information and movies on drive 1.

How can I fix the problem so that it will boot with both drives, or how can I access the movies and such if I only boot with drive 0?

Thanks in advance
 

A:problems booting up windows xp

sean102385...

Have you tried unconnecting and then reconnecting the power cable to the drive (make SURE the PC is unplugged first of course)? If this isn't the problem, then...

Do you have another PC you can connect the 400 GB drive to? If so, do so to see if the same problem occurs. While you have the disk connected to another PC, assuming you are able to accomplish this and that the disk is successfully recognized, it might be a good idea to check in Device Manager to see what brand of hard drive you have.

Usuallly the first portion of the drive ID in Device Manager will be:
WDC = Western Digital
or
ST = Seagate

Once you know the brand of your hard drive, you can visit the manufacturer's site and download their hard drive test kit. This should tell you if the drive is having problems...

If not, perhaps your power supply is near its end or there could be a software or other problem.

A:Problems booting windows...

Sounds like a hardware fault somewhere. Could just be a loose cabe connection as the error is saying it cannot get a constant connection to a device.

I/O from what im aware are normally signs of hardware issues in some way.

Have you tried to system restore as opposed to a Automatic Repair? As a last resort, try a reset. If you get an error of a similar nature regarding I/O errors then take it back.

A 2 week old computer shouldnt be giving I/O errors! You have either 21 days or 28 days frompurchase to return an item if its faulty depending on the retailer.

Hello First time posting here on sevenforums so apologies Windows booting/recovering 7 Problems if this is the wrong place Just today I started encountering problems booting Windows after install Visual Studio which may or may not have anything to do with it A few moments after the Windows login screen appears the system just appears to freeze Tried rebooting and doing a Safe Boot but that also seems to freeze or never quite finishes booting after several minutes So I got out my Windows install disk on DVD and my custom Windows install image on USB that has the NVMe driver for the Samsung Pro where I installed the Win system originally and RAID driver for the x Samsung Evo in a Problems booting/recovering Windows 7 RAID array just for data The weird thing is that the boot partition in BIOS appears to be on the RAID volume I Problems booting/recovering Windows 7 have no idea how it got there it should be on the M Pro I've tried System Recovery but only get an error saying quot This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows quot I tried disabling the Evo drives in BIOS but the System Recovery option disappeared I'll try disabling the M drive after posting this Attached are some diagnostic output files from a diskpart script and a quot bcdedit Problems booting/recovering Windows 7 enum all quot command I'm pretty sure I can repair this problem but could use some pointers Thanks

A:Problems booting/recovering Windows 7

Well after many hours of hair pulling, I finally got it to boot again from the original system partition on the M.2 drive. Wish I could say exactly how I did it (some combination of bcdboot commands and manual copying of a BCD file from the EFI Boot partition on the RAID drive to the primary partition on the M.2 drive).

I'm guessing this all started when I updated the BIOS which reset the RAID controller (and probably the boot priority) which forced me to rebuild the RAID volume and somewhere during the course of that the Windows Boot Manager (and all of its little Reserved and System partitions) magically migrated from my M.2 drive to the RAID drive.

What a nightmare. I don't suppose there are some tools out there that will reset this partitions back to the way they were originally? Please post if any come to mind.

Hi, I think I made a grievous error last night. I was installing Windows 7 Pro (x64) onto my computer. The installation went well, but when I got into the OS itself, I noticed it wasn't installing anything onto the Win7 Partition. Instead it was installing programs into the WinXP partition. I initially thought it was because I didn't set the Win7 partition as the active partition, so I went into Disk Management and made it the Active Partition. BIG mistake because that erased the dual boot function. I received the BOOTMGR is MISSING msg and I had to repair via my Win7 Dvd.. Problem is my Win 7 repair just recovered the Win7 OS - and now I can't dual boot into XP. Is there a way to restore the dual boot functionality?

A:Why does my HP laptop have problems booting to Windows?

It certainly has all the hallmarks of a hardware based fault...

Usually a software corruption is repeatable, in your case it's intermittent. This indicates that likely it's hardware based.

Is it under warranty?

A:Windows not booting: hardware problems?

n370: It IS normal for the H/S fan to be screwed into the fins on the heatsink. That's not a problem.
About not finishing the boot process, That's a problem.
Are you quite sure you didn't accidently bump a power cable loose while you were screwing around with the fan? I'd check all the power fittings to see if they are connected tightly especially the one on that optical drive that won't open and the HDD connedtion since you say it isn't working.
There is a small hole in most optical drives that you can insert a straigtened paper clip into and push gently. This will pop the tray out just a little, enough so that you can gently pull it all the way out. Maybe a disk is stuck in there.
Good luck.

Ok folks got some issue here with my PC It seems that from time to time I get a freeze on the PC when I try to boot When the PC can boot and Windows loads I get temporary and verry frequent quot not responding quot or a busy icon instead of the normal cursor for no real reason For example if I try to click a link on a page it stops responding for a few seconds and than it is back to normal it does it very frequent and because of that 7 booting problems freezing Windows and it's verry hard to work on it I got GB of RAM from which are used since I have a bit OS through I don't think the memory is the problem also say if I try to enter an URL in the web browser and Windows 7 booting and freezing problems I press enter it does the not responding thing again If you're saying it's the browsers fault and I should reinstall it it is not from the browser since it does this on the entire PC sometimes it even asks me to end the process of Windows because even Windows doesn't respond in some cases through it is not that often From what I've found out it seems that there are some periods which the system can't detect storage drives like DVD-RW external drives and even HDDs I'ved found the not seeing storage drives thing while trying to change the first boot device to the dvd-rw instead of Windows 7 booting and freezing problems hard drive to boot from the windows disc but when I clicked the boot order in BIOS I was shocked when I saw only the floppy was available the thing is I don't have any floppy drives on my pc I also don't think it's a driver issue or corrupt windows since the installation is recent and the drivers of the motherboard and other components are installed

A:Windows Vista Booting Problems?

Hi-

Hmm. It strange that it boots after such a long amount of time, as usually that means that it can't find anything to boot!

First, try these simple things:
*Make sure that the boot order is set to either HDD first or CD/DVD drive then HDD, here is a tutorial which should help you change the boot order: Boot Order - How to Change the Boot Order in BIOS - BIOS Boot Order
*Run Chkdsk: from the command prompt run "chkdsk /f /r"
*Try easyBCD and reinstall the MBR, there may be a problem with it. See here for a guide on how to do just that.

I am using a multi-boot manager ( Acronis OSS ) to boot into Windows Vista.

When I choose the boot option which makes my Windows 7 partition the Active partition, the boot lands me in Windows Vista. When I try BCDEdit from Windows Vista the default BCD store is pointing to my Windows 7 partition instead of my own Windows Vista.

Does anyone know what is happening and how to correct this ?

I really want to boot into Windows 7 when my Windows 7 partition is made the Acive partition, and boot into Windows Vista when my Windows Vista partition is the Active partition. As it is I can not boot into Windows 7 although I have a perfectly valid partition already setup for it.

I know Microsoft's Windows Boot Manager is doing somethign I do not understand. But how to correct it via BCDEdit baffles me. Any help would be appreciated.

In Windows Vista download EasyBCD run it and see if there is an entry for Windows 7. If not create one under "Add New Entry" Create a Windows 7 entry as you see in the image then click on "Add Entry"

Basically this is my dad's laptop. After the computer slowed down dramatically, wouldn't load pages and had problems connecting to the net, he used his recovery disks to reload the original configuration for his HP Pavillion laptop (with Windows XP Home). Then, the computer took all four disks and when it restarted, it came up with a black screen and the message "Load Error!....Press any key to reboot!...." Pressing any key just keeps bringing the message back again and again. He also shut down the laptop, and restarted it, hit F2, checked the HD for errors and the test passed. Help! undefined

Situation 1:
Create a bootable USB using Rufus (GPT partition)When booting I get this error.

Situation 2:
Mount the VHD.Manually install Windows 7 using Dism /apply-image command.Add bootfilesAdd entry in Boot Loader (using EasyBCD).When booting I get a black screen (nothing else, even ''starting Windows'' does not occur).

So currently I have no idea what to do next. Could anyone give me assistance?

Thanks in advance!

Add entry in Boot Loader (using EasyBCD).



That's what's caused it. So, yes it is UEFI related and GPT related too.

Can't really tell from the video since I can't read anything but it looks like its trying to resume from a previous state, either from sleep or hibernation maybe? Is there a prompt to skip that and start clean?
If not, try starting in safe mode, number one, to see if that gets you in and number two, if it was a sudden problem, possibly a system restore to a point previous to the problem will help or running a check disk will help or running the start up repair from an install disc or disc made for that purpose will help.

A:Problems booting up Windows XP. Looping occurs.

It could be a problem with the HD as it is probably orig. or System files are damage or both.

If you had a disc you could try a repair install or get into Recovery console (you can borrow a disc for that)

To see if you can access the drive putting on another PC is best

A:Solved: Windows XP not booting after long line of problems...

If you're doing a hard drive format and clean reinstall of XP with a XP SP1 disc, you need to download and save and burn off the full 316 MB SP3 upgrade to a CD-R.

After XP SP1 is installed and the computer is restarted, use the CD-R to install the SP3 upgrade.

There's no need to install the SP2 upgrade first. You can go straight from SP1 to SP3.

After the SP3 upgrade is installed and the computer is restarted, go to the Windows Update/Microsoft Update site.

Download and install the 100+ post-SP3 high priority updates that have been released in the past 4 years.

Once XP is completely up-to-date, you can install an antivirus program and your other desired programs.

There's no need to install a third-party firewall unless you insist on having one because the XP built-in firewall is fine.

By the way, make sure no external devices, such as a printer or external hard drive, are connected to the computer while you're doing this.

Hi all,

I made an upgrade to Windows 10 but after that my satellite notebank C670 has booting problems. It's always after Windows updates were installed. It shows the Win logo followed by a blue screen. After repeated switching on and off I get again to the login screen for the password. Have Windows 10 already reinstalled because I didn't come to the login screen anymore. But problems are still there only with switching on and off attempts it works. But this is not a solution. Have you any ideas - drivers for Win10 or bios? Thanks for help

A:Problems with pc booting due to corrupted or missing windows file.

Your registry hive SYSTEM is corrupt and unusable.

To repair: http://www.digitalwebcast.com/2002/0..._boot_toot.htm


For future reference: RAM and video adapter issues have to head the list as the most common problems on windows based personal computers. If you are upgrading a system, do only one upgrade at a time, not several. Install the RAM and test it thorough; something like this utility, for example: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

When all is happy with the first upgrade, do the second. Use it, test it. If happy, do the third, ...etc.

A:Windows 8.1 ASUS laptop not booting correctly. Problems everywhere.

Recently I tried to fix a Windows 8.1 laptop using the recovery media on a pen drive. It did not work, in fact it wiped the disk and did not restore the operating system. I received a message about being unable to write to a partition (don't remember if it said locked).
 
I had previously saved the user files by booting a USB connected HDD with Linux OS.
 
So I figured that the recovery media was maybe out of date (it was Windows 8 and the installed OS was 8,1)
I did not know about this at the time: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/create-reset-refresh-media
"If you want to install or reinstall Windows 8.1 and don't have installation media, you can create it from this page."
 
So I had to admit defeat and asked the user to take the machine to the vendor and tell them about the recovery disk being unable to write to the Hard Disk. The machine was still under warranty but the warranty didn't cover software so after a couple of weeks of them trying and failing to fix the laptop (It was a major computer retailer with a tech department) I suggested that it was not a software issue but a hardware issue and that the User should request a new HDD. So he did and they agreed and it got fixed.
 
Maybe your HDD is failing.

I have an old sony laptop PCG-383M and my hard disk recently died (of old age :) so I've bought a new one and installed window 7 eternity. But when I restart and take the CD out I get the message - Operating system not found! I went to BIOS to check the boot preferences as I wanted to set it up so the system boots from hard disk instead of optical disk but on the list of boot options says that internal hard disk is excluded from booting! Why is that? How do I change this? Bios is updated and all the drives are up to date. Please help!!

A:Problems booting windows from internal hard disk on Sony vaio

Hi icetana,

Try reseating the computer hard-drive. Also, try searching for the latest BIOS update for the computer on Sony's website. Hope everything works out well for you.

A:Problems with Windows Update, running sfc /scannow, and booting in Safe Mode.

Hi,
 
i had the same problem a couple weeks ago.
 
I was googling so much, but in the end, solution was very simple.
Program tmpFix worked fine for me, and issue was removed.
After download just extract and run START.vbs, then reboot computer and it should be ok.
 
You can download tmpFix from here: http://uptobox.com/o0jx98q3y3ue

A:Problems booting windows after major hardware change (IDE drives not recognized)

you must reinstall windows on the new setup from scratch. Any major hardware changes will require this. Windows configures itself and is registered to the mobo and components. Also windows is licensed for only one system at a time.

A BIOS beep is indicative of hardware failure or incompatibility. Read my guide here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic95391.html

To retrieve data you will need to use your drive in another system as an external device. Use a usb to IDE adapter.

A:Problems with Windows Update, running sfc /scannow, and booting in safe mode.

It could be a hard drive problem but you definitely have some corruption. Check Disk - chkdsk

If that doesn't work I would do a repair install. I think that you have exhausted everything else. Repair Install For Vista

As for the restore points it is a good idea to purge them after a virus since it could have infected a restore point.

A:Problems right after installing Windows 10

Hi, welcome to tenforums. You wouldn't be here if you were unlucky with Win 10.
I also had a bit of a fight with my upgrade from 8.1, but symptoms not quite as bad as yours.

You might want to try booting to safe mode (e.g. via SHIFT + restart and navigating the lengthy menus or via msconfig - there are details in one of the tutorials - see Tutorials, above) and seeing if you can boot and restart cleanly.

If so, also have a look at your event log, and see if you can pick out anything significant.

Your problems may have more than one source, but I'm betting you have some sort of driver issue.. a video card driver problem is not uncommon. But that can only be an unjustified guess.

If safe mode works, move on to a clean boot. (That begins to eliminate the effect of installed programs).
How to perform a Clean boot in Windows 10 - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki
If any symptoms disappear as a result, you can proceed with a process of elimination.
However, a clean boot includes your drivers.

Ok, so I tried installing Windows XP Pro, and for some reason my install was corrupt and never finished. Now my computer freezes on startup most of the time at Verifying DMI Pool Data... Sometimes I get lucky and it boots to the CD, but when it tries completing the install it freezes. If I try booting normally to the HD first, it freezes, because I have no complete install of Windows anymore. How can I fix this? I've tried multiple CDs. I would like to keep my files if possible but I am willing to reformat everything if that is whats needed but I cant even get to that step anymore. Please help! Thanks in advance.

Hey, I built two new computer for my mom's friend and in return he gave me his old computer. It's an AMD Athlon 1Ghz Gateway with 512MB of RAM. I'm trying to install WinXP Pro SP2 on it and I'm not having any luck. It hangs during setup. (Very beginning when Windows loads all the needed files)

Anyone know what the problem is?

A:Having problems with Installing Windows

Possibly an admin feature. SP-2 won't install unless you are logged in as an administrator. Then again maybe something else, but this one is common. Good Luck.
