Have a new Z240 Workstation with a Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 nVMe SSD.Windows 10 will install to the SSD from USB no problem but the machine fails to find the OS post install.The Samsung 950 Pro SSD does not show up in the UEFI section of the BIOS, but it does show up under Legacy devices.Secure Boot is not enabled. If I add a SATA HDD, Windows Boot Manager gets installed on the SATA device and the machine will then boot Windows 10 from SSD. How do I get the machine to boot from SSD without having to have a SATA HDD installed? I've updated the BIOS from 01.11 to 01.21 with no change in the above.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z240-wont-boot-from-M-2/td-p/5587319
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.)

Issue: Whever the system is booted/rebooted after POST, while transfering control to OS, the system goes into a pause/halt (keyboard and mouse doesn't responds)Workaround: As soon as one of the monitors is turned off, seems control passes to Windows 7 ("Loading windows" on black screen shows up) and boots normally, now the monitor can be turned on and dual display works as usualAdditional info: While the system is paused, if the NUM/CAPS/SCROLL lock is pressed in a particular sequence (even though the lights actually don't respond), it looks like the key-press sequence gets stored in buffer. This is verfied once one of the monitor is turned off, the same keypress pattern lights up on the keyboardSetup: z240 with 2x23" monitor connected to Display-ports, HP smartcard keyboard and mouse connected to rear USB. BIOS version 1.11 (SP74759)Has anyone experianced similar issue or anyone has a fix for this?
Same here.New Z240 workstation with Xeon E3-1245 v5 and two monitors HP Z24n, both attached on the motherboard's DisplayPorts.OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Sp1 with latest patches and drivers (including monitors' one), BIOS (01.27 Rev.A) I found two workarounds: power down and restart, or briefly attach another DVI monitor. I will try your trick to power off a monitor. P.S. Initially I had the same problem using two Samsung DVI monitors and HP DisplayPort->DVI adapters. I thought it was a problem with the signal conversion and changed monitors. Probably this post is an instance of the same problem:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z-240-Video/m-p/546...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/z240-boot-issue-with-dual-monitor-setup/td-p/5531610

It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up.
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive.
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
7. Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk space.
8. Click “Next” for the installation to proceed.
Hope this helps!

Info on 7B STOP errors...http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm, scroll down to 7B in left column.
IMO, you have compounded the situation by using a "downloaded" version of Windows, since I suspect that such may contain embedded malware as part of the package.
Any number of things may have caused the initial hang, as you can see by reading the data at the Aumha website.
This happen after when i ignored a AVG update as im working in middle of spreadsheet which need to be done in this week and when i tried to copy and paste and the laptop were freeze and wont let me able do anything so i press "off" button to shut thing quick rather as i set my off button to hibernation mode.
When i turn on, The acer logo show then blank page. Tried pressig F8 to go Last Known Good Config and still the blank page. Also with Safe Mode. Blank page!!!
I perfer if you can change your method if i need to insert CD as it's netbook and it dont have CD drive and also i have blank USB ready to add for booting.
Thanks for any help in advance
Hi Team, We are trying to install win7 on Z240 but due to some issue the SSD does not gets detected we have also tried installing Win7 via CD/USB but still no luck can someone help me regarding this issue.
If secure boot is enabled in BIOS, try disabling it and enable legacy boot.Also in case you are using NVME SSD, then you may need to inject the corresponding driverhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/Z240/td-p/5529208

it keeps getting stuck mid boot, it wont work in start up repair or safe mode.
before this happened I got two bluescreens earlier in the day.
I have gotten blue screens before but nothing were I couldn't boot my computer.
Thank you in advance
last known good config won't work either.
Last night I updated windows 8.1 from windows 8.
It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.
Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.
The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.
Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.
What does the BSOD state? Most times it is a driver issue with the Display drivers. Other times it is hardware.http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/46169-windows-wont-start-after-8-1-update-wont-boot-safe-mode.html

Hello, I am working on installing windows 7 enterprise 64, on a z240 SFF. I am missing the USB drivers for it. I have the driver disk that came with it and I have installed every driver that is on there, along with going to HP support software and drivers web link and downloading everyone from there. There has not been one driver that has solved this problem, so I was looking for some sort of help on finidning one.l I tried a few other drivers for different model of towers but no luck. please help
Hi: Please post the hardware ID for the USB controller that needs the driver. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and click on the device needing the driver. Then click on the Details tab at the top of the 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 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/z240-sff-USB-driver-missing/td-p/5746056

When you run HP service packs, they will expand and place their contents under an own directory within C:\swsetup.Specifically in your case, if you run sp74202.exe, you should see a new directory C:\swsetup\SP74202 has been created with the contents of the service pack within. Alternatively you can use 7-zip to peek inside the service pack exe without running it since the exe is a self extracting zip file that runs the installer once decompressed In any case, a newer ME update exists here but i'd first apply the latest system firmware update available here. When looking at the HP service pack links above, it's good practice to selectively click each "Description", "Enhancements", "Installation Instructions" "Release Notes" "Fixes" and "Revision History" tabs and read the information (some of it is repetative but you'll soon learn where to focus your attension). The contents of these tabs contain important and relevant information on what has been improved, fixed, which system it's for, how to install the update, etc. And if a previously installed SP is not listed in the "revision history" tab, that release may have been pulled by HP due to some fauly behaviour or other issue! Pay particular attension to the prerequisits as in some instances firmware updates have to be stepped (that is you can't always simply apply the latest). And if you read such boaring stuff, the system firmware (BIOS) Installation Instructions tab would have given you a clue where the sp files are expanded to Have you tried simply enter the command (as specified) via a command prompt window but changing directories to where the FWUpdLcl.exe file is located? Just keep in mind that sp74202 is the initial ME firmware release so nothing sould update So best to apply the latest system firmware (BIOS), then the ME firmware, then maybe the latest ME software (under chipset drivers). Best to bookmark this page which lists all the downloads for your z240 Windows 10 64bit tower system so check it out periodically.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Updating-Firmware-for-Z240/td-p/5575077
Hi, I'm wanting to install 2 x 3.5" HDDs in my new Z240 SFF Workstation. There is a bay that already came with an insert and one of the new drives slots into that just fine. However it looks like some sort of insert/caddy is needed for the "External/internal shared 3.5" bay", as it is too big for the drive itselt to slot in. It looks like this bay is sized for some sort of optical disk. I've called HP and their spare parts people here in Australia, but no one can find the part needed.

I am trying to setup my new HP Z240 workstation, but cannot get the graphics card to operate at any resolution above 1024 X 768. The graphics card is an NVIDIA QUADRO K620. It is connected to the monitor with a DVI-D Dual link cable. The monitor is an HP w2408. The monitor has two inputs (DVI and VGA). I have the VGA input connected to another HP computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 card (this computer/card/monitor displays at 1920 x1200). When I checked the adapter modes (using the list modes option), the best mode listed is 1024 x 768. The NVIDIA spec sheet lists the max resolution with DVI-I as 2560 x 1600 or 1920 x 1200. What can I do to get the max resolution from my monitor (1920 x 1200)?
Update. Problem solved. When I realized that the monitor in DVI mode was not being recognized as PNP, it pointed to the monitor as the problem. Installed new monitor, everythng works as it should. Evidently the VGA input to the old monitor functioned properly while the DVI portion was defective (card or cable connection).

All of a sudden, I turn on my lap top (lenovo idea pad flex 10) and it takes forever to Load, then says windows 8 wont boot or something.

I went to advanced options and pulled up the box you type **** in butI don't know what to put km it to make windows boot!
You need to be much more specific about what your problem is. I can't tell at all from your post what's really happening, and neither will anybody else. What exactly happens? What exact messages do you get? What "advanced options" are you talking about? Also, it appears this site's profanity filter has blocked something in your post. Using such language is not helpful.

Then it will go straight to the American Trends page i explained earlier and wont go further
Then if you switch power off again and see what happens, it may not even power up next time, no blue lit on, a split second of fan noise then nada. Or it may have nothing happen except you can hear the fan running and the dvd drive can open

So far these are the problems I am having, no partition found, xp recovery disk will start but fail after first step, cant repair and cant go futher with installation.

Hi first time poster
Full specs: MSI Z68a-GD80 i5 2500k Gtx680 Asus Hitachi Deskstar 1tb (boot) KingstonSSD120gb (games)
So last night I shrunk my HDD partition by 100gb, intending to dual boot W8. Never got round to installing it, but when I turned on my PC tjis morning it won't boot. It shows the manufacturer logo then goes to a black.screen with a blinking underscore
I decided to try putting in my W7 disk in to repair, but it starts loading windows filesthen givesme an error about not bring able to communicate with a device.0xc0000009 I think. I thought my HDD might be the issue, but it does it also when my HDD is unplugged and just my SSDpluggedin
Worried my PC is bricked at this point cause I can't boot or repair from disk. Advice appreciated!
Try a linux boot disc and see if you can change the partition size a tiny bit with that. Gparted is your best bet:
GParted -- Download
If you can, that may fix the error.
I wanted to transfer data to another hard drive and i hooked it up as a slave drive to my main drive and the first time i booted it up it did nothing and then i restarted and and wouldnt boot and gave me the message
NTLRD is missing
Please press any key to restart
then i unhooked the second hard drive and rebooted and got the same message, i hooked the second drive up to its original machine and got the same message on it too. what is goin on hear now nothing will boot. please need help, i cant lose all that data on both hardrives!
I sacraficed the first hard drive and format it and then when i go to install windows xp on it at says

Im running xp pro on a stable P4 hardware. recently it stopped booting into windows; after windows loading screen computer restarts it self. Through F8 option i got to the blue error screeen which says "Unmountable_boot_volume".
I tried running xp pro cd to get to the recovery console but that doesnt work either. after the options F6 (third party drivers) and F2(automated recovery blah blah) it just goes straight to examining hard disk and then shows the drives and asks to select partition to install xp in.
I read some forums and this problem is caused due to either faulty harddrive, or faulty system files. i dunt think its my harddrive.
i need a way to get to recovery console so i can run chkdsk / fixboot
i dunt really want to format.
You do it wrong. I think the option is press "R".
IT WILL TELL YOU ON THE SCREEN.
No need to press any "F" key
ok, so i got a trojan.zlob.h and removed it, fine, i did another scan after updating my AV again, picked up some pretty much harmless trojan.eek (its something like that, maybe emk?) or so i believe. and after removing them i had to reboot to complete the proccess as usual, after booting back in it gets so far into the booting up thing and just freezes, everything no matter where your cursor is is a hourglass. there is only 39 proccesses in task manager (47 usually, MSN, xfire, steam etc..etc.. have all already loaded up so the missing proccesses could be something important)

Hello, My company recently purchased some Z240 SFF workstations and put in aftermarket multi-media card readers in the 3.5" slot. The card reader uses the internal USB 3.0 header, so I had to unplug the USB 3.0 cable for the for the front usb ports in order to get it to work. The media card reader works just fine in Windows, however, I get a POST error message on startup: "Cable detection Error 41A- Front USB2 Not Connected. Front USB cable has been detached or unseatted from the motherboard. Press Enter to continue." Is there anyway to disable POST messages? I can't seem to find anything in the UEFI/BIOS to do this.
One of the HP engineers who has been very helpful to us here has recently posted on a related question, and he has access to the schematics and the internal design details of these workstations. His post is on this thread, HERE : http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z420-USB3-0-Head... Dan tells how to jumper the header to make it believe the cable is still connected, and it would not matter whether you jumpered at the motherboard end or the far plug end, as long as you got the correct pins/plug holes jumpered. Note his caution.... that seems to suggest that the pins on the motherboard are not as stout as the ones we are used to seeing. A proper sized insulated wire jumper with a short segment of wire exposed at each end can be used as a jumper at the far plug end of a cable, rather than the little plastic jumpers we use at the motherboard pin end of thins. If you carefully figure out the wire colors this should work. The wiring of such headers/cables within a HP workstation family are usually the same, and things can stay the same from one generation to another, in my experience.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z240-POST-Message-disable/td-p/5761989

HiI have bought a z240 tower which runs really well with win 7 pro. Recently, I wanted to add an SATA extension card, but without any success. I am looking for a simple SATA controller without RAID functionality (which unnecessary slows down the boot procedure). Unfortunately, HP does not offer any SATA boards as accessories - Is there any recommendation for such a card from your side? I've bought a LogiLink PC0059A card, unfortunately, the system does no longer startup when connecting drives to it. The hp BIOS screen appears as usual, then the card shows the attached drives, after that the hp bios screen appears again and reamains without any reaction (reboot required). Thanks for any hints Tomhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/z240-add-SATA-card-no-working/td-p/5725275
I just got a HP Z240 Tower with a 400W power supply, 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB M.2 SSD. Is the GeForce GTX 970 Graphics card compatible? My PCIe v3 x16 slot is available.
Greetings, The 400 power supply could be an issue. A stock GTX 970 lists a recommended 500 watt power supply. You have to verify the 10.1 inch to 10.5 inch card will fit in your chassis. You should have the required UEFI BIOS if the system is brand new and you have a PCIe x16 3.0 slot available on the system board.

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.
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. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=8323799&swItemId=wk_156996_1&swEnvOid=405... 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 "f6flpy-x64.zip" 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 ***http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Unable-to-Install-windows-7-on-HP-Z240-SFF-Workstation/td-p/5648294

Hi, I had a look inside and the Z Turbo drive appears to be connected to the motherboard (location 23 on the motherboard map in the manual) and not using a SATA port or any of the four main PCIe3 slots. Only one of the PCIe3 slots is being used and that is for the NVIDIA graphics card, and only one of the SATA ports is being used and that is for the Slim BluRay drive (connected to SATA3). That means there are 3 x SATA ports available, and 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5" bays available, by the looks of it. My question is, is it possible to put 3 x HDD/SSD drives in it, i.e. 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5"?

The Pc was set HDD reformat boot, Sata wont wont up for dual boot both with xp pro gb Maxtor ide Hdd and the other gb Maxtor Serial ATA was working excellent Son downloaded a music program I think it was win amp which affected the pc - now the pc wont boot with both drives connected It boots and works fine with the IDE drive but won t boot at all on the SATA drive at start up screen it gives me the options to boot it either- safe mode safe mode with network support safe mode with command prompt boot form last known good working order or boot normally Sata HDD wont boot, wont reformat Whatever choice I make when the pc tries to boot there is a blue flash on the Sata HDD wont boot, wont reformat monitor and the process starts all over again it keep going round in cycles can t get to safe mode to delete offending software I decided to do a repair or re install but the computer just freeze after xp examine the system and load drivers It does not get to where I press the F when it freeze it says Examining mb disk at id on bus on viasraid Is there a solution --croixdan -- nbsp
Yeah i have the same problem...
Everything was ok i had my sata maxtor 160gb as
my main windows drive, with a partition so if windows
were to have any problems i could just delete that partition!
Basicaly my problems started with a blue screen after my house mate
was transfering from me over a LAN, so turned Pc off.. then alas no more
It gets to the windows splash screen "winXP pro" loading the little bar going
then it crashes and restarts or just frezzes.
I've tryed winxp setup but stops @ 156328mb
also sata hd can't be found if use floppy Win'ME boot disk to do fdisk.
Also have tryed WinXp on another standard ATA hd then add the Sata
whole system slows, takes about 10 min to start windows but Sata Hd
is listed in my computer, but can't access it.
I checked some error logs thses 2 mentioed a lot:
The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D. - Event ID 11.
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\D during a paging operation. - Event ID 51.
So at a guess i think we need new HD's!!!
i got 1 month warrenty left on mine...
shame about the data i had about 90gb of films waiting to be burnt
but it still spins though so i'm gonna try some apps and see if i can get anything back.
Let me know if you have any developments
I was running Ubuntu Linux then decided to change back to Windows XP I was happily running the Windows set-up disc to reformat the entire hard drive After this was done the set-up disc went on to copy over a load of files and then went into a reboot the screen went black OK but then everything just hung In the end I went to power off intending to start again The computer would not power off except by my pulling out the battery and supply and wont wont power off boot Laptop cable If I reconnect the cable Laptop wont boot and wont power off I can power on with the power button after which I hear the fan and the optical drive being read but then it just stalls - nothing on the screen cannot get in bios and still refuses to power off It quot s either a big coincidence or the three symptoms no screen no bios no power-off are all a result of the failure to self-reboot during the windows set-up I have removed the CMOS battery and left it out overnight but to no avail Can anyone help My laptop is a HP Compaq NX Thanks
The first question is hardware or software? That this happened in the middle of a Ubuntu to XP conversion is interesting, but may be purely coincidental. It could be a straight-up hardware problem that just happened to occur at this time.
So, the way to determine this is to try to boot using some kind of media. XP disk, Ubuntu Live, Hiren's, whatever. It if boots, hardware is possibly good. If not, hardware is bad.
If hardware is bad, you WANT the hard drive to be bad. Everything else costs more money than the computer may be worth.

Hello. I am currently working on getting a fresh installation of Windows 7 on our HP Z240's in order to create our standard business image.

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore? The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header. However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA". The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable. So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board? The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere. Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for? Is this for the old media card readers? I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header. Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z240-internal-usb-header-and-updated-Maintenance-amp-Service/td-p/5598284

Hi all, I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy. I think the auto shutdown issue is related to overheating on 750 SSD. I am wondering if the motherboard of Z240 SFF is compatible with Intel 750 SSD. Does anyone have Intel 750 PCIe SSD installed on their Z240 SFF or any other Z Workstation? Thanks!

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Missing-Z240-Network-Driver-after-booting-to-Windows-in-SCCM/td-p/5600498
Hi basically this probem arose from nowhere I came back from holiday days ago and my pc took longer than i remember to boot Only till i realised the next day and day after it was getting longer and some times not loading past the Windows screen Each time when it hasn t loaded fully I turn it off and re-boot pressing F to get up safe mode which doesn t work at all It gets stuck on avgdiseh doesn t load past and will stay like that till turned off Start up repair does absolutely nothing it asks to do System up Start Windows boot boot past and safe Screen, mode won't wont restore which then Windows wont boot past Start up Screen, and won't boot safe mode errors and reboots if i press cancel it stays on the Scanning screen for hours hours today I ve now seemed to run into another problem trying to boot from my CD drive First time I loaded everything correctly got to install windows screen clicked start up repair which did nothing Ever since that windows won t detect my CD drive even though it opens and did read CD s watched a film on it the other day I ve looked online and other people have had the same problems and clearly i haven t found a solution yet I ve tried cleaning the inside of my case double checking connections changing boot options From what i ve read its either a failed HDD failed RAM or failed CD drive in the case of my second dilemma I m just curious as to whether anyone can pin point what the problem is If its an easy fix or whether it is possible to fix Thanks for your time nbsp

Hi a couple of months ago my system crashed windows wouldnt boot and I boot, help 7 wont Win disk doesnt boot, startup Ubuntu , windows dual misplaced my installation disk I had Win 7 , Ubuntu dual boot, windows wont boot, startup disk doesnt help the problems several times since obtaining the computer several years ago Lenovo IDeaPad y I attributed the problem to what I believed was a bad hard disk so I replaced it with a refurbished model I installed Ubungu and it worked well ever since I later located my win disk and created a dual boot Windows worked very well for several months until it stopped starting up last week It would get to the black windows screen where it says starting and usually get stuck there I would get fed up and turn it off after half an hour Once it was as the screen and it later started the checkdisk program and found no errors Another time it finally got into windows after a very long loading time and it seemed to work fine until the next time I restarted windows It just went back to the loading windows screen I formatted the windows partition through GParted in Ubuntu and tried the installation disk and it would get stuck at in the quot expanding files quot sequence After an hour of hoping something would happen I got fed up and forced it off again Not sure what to do from this point I have read other posts and it has led me to think that the issue could possibly be bad RAM or an issue with BIOS But Ubuntu has been working fine while Windows has simply been freezing at any attempt of a startup
It could be that the HDD has a bad sector in the Windows partition, or that the drive is actually failing. If there is a utility in Linux that tests memory, I would run it.
You could also use Memtest86+. It runs from a CD/DVD. Let it run for several passes to rule out bad RAM.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Dual booting with all hdd's connected can be problematic
I personally use one of these to simplify the task after many mishaps dual booting on the same disk.... I never found a better/ more reliable way other than this,

Installing each os you'd want to remove the other disk completely so each os would have it's own boot loader.
Even though 10 can access win-7 I would not do it this will often trigger check disk to run in win-7.
Not to mention Fast start in win-10 will trigger it too
Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
So yes disable fast start in win-10 is a must do.
Also for good measure disable fast or quick start in your bios too.
I would not share data disks either.
I really hope one of you fine people can help me out.

Anyone know what I can do to get it working? I have a windows 7 operating system. Also it says that i dont have a hard drive when I ran a diagnostics on it.
This in reference to when windows xp will not boot, and when trying to boot, it brings you to a text screen saying... Windows will not load. File HAL32.dll cannot be found or is corrupted. And this process lists several files that windows says are missing.
How can one go about using the command line repair interface to repair these files? Can someone provide me a link to the process on how to do this in such a scenario. The reason I want to do this is so I dont have to reformat (or at least try not to) if I dont have to. I know quite a few techs out there that just dont mess with it. But I would really like to know how to do this.
Any suggestions and or experiences would be great.

i turned my computer on for the first time in a year the other day and it worked for about 5 minutes it then went to the blue screen and since then it just stays in the bios saying press f1 to retry boot and so forth, so i borrowed a windows xp disc and i went to load it and it freezes after it says press f6 to instal third party raid system...does anyone know why? i first tried my 160 gb hard drive and it did it then i tried another one and it did the same thing, my cd rom is the first priority in the boot sequence
Sounds like your motherboard might have problems and it is not recognizing any hard drives.
Have you tried to install on more than one HD with no luck ? That is what it sounds like by your post. Also, please note that if you have an XP disk that does not match your Product ID Key's XP version, it is not going to accept that PID at the end of the install process.
Before even trying to install to a HD, first verify that the HD is recognized in BIOS on boot. If it is physically installed, but not reconized in BIOS, there is no point in going further because XP won't "see" it either.
Can you get any of your HD's to be recognized in BIOS ?
I cant get my windows to boot goes to the boot screen and freezes. I tried to reinstall the windows from cds and it freezes at the point right before licensing agreement. when i do a harddrive dig i get return code 7 I am not sure what i should do. It wont boot in safe mode either. I have a dell xps 410
An error code 7 from dell is an indication of hard drive failure.
if it is still in warranty please call them and have them fix it however recovering your data might be a problem.

You might want to try (no for certain) to remove the battery from the motherboard to reset it and then attempt a reboot.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/o-s-wont-boot-past-xp-boot-menu-frozen-208488.html
Hello I am having major problems with my Computer A while ago in the middle of d gaming my computer locked up and the monitor went to standby mode When I turned comp off and back on boot no wont no beep... boot, Computer screen, the screen was blank All the devices were still working Hard drive fans dvd-drive all still spinning but the screen was blank no boot screen or beep I tried unplugging all the devices one by one then rebooting and got down to the motherboard and the processor and still nothing at start-up I also tried an alternate monitor and got same result So i bought a new motherboard and Computer wont boot, no boot screen, no beep... power supply and im still getting the same problem i really hope my processor isnt burnt out Im not too familiar with installing motherboards so i didnt mess with the jumper settings but im getting the same problem that i had with my old MB and its default jumper settings Any suggestions ------------------ Computer Specs ------------------ Asus P P -VM Motherboard Samsung GB RPM Hard Drive Intel Pentium Celeron GHz Socket Processor MB Super Talent -pin DDR Memory Volari V MB -Bit Vid Card Watt Internal Power Supply
first try clearning the cmos on the motherboard jumper and see if that helps fix the problem, refer to the asus manual for the cmos jumper location. then boot the computer up and see if you get any post.
if not, then boot with only the bare essentials which are only the power supply, motherboard, cpu, ram, and videocard. take out all of the comp parts outside the computer case and only reseat the devices ive listed above and then see if you can get the computer to post.

I tried to modify my boot.ini file recently to get rid of my loading screen. I thought i had typed everything in as it should be but i guess i didnt. I know the normal procedure to get around this which is to change my CDROM to primary boot device and use my xp CD, but for some reason, my CDROM will not even try to load the CD. im just really not sure why this is, it has never had any problems... it is listed as the master divice on my PCI list, the primary boot device, it is connected properly... the only thing i can think of is maybe the jumpers might need to be changed? but i dont have my manual anymore. someone heeelp!

I had had 2 operating system on 2 hard drives (XP and Vista) I took vista off and replaced it with media center. I could boot both xp and media center but the vista boot screen always shows up and would have to go into "ealier versions of windows" and choose my OS from there. I read somewhere to get rid of the vista boot screen I should delete "bootmgr" file and "boot" folder from the root of C: I did this and now nothing works. It tries to boot into vista boot screen but it says files are missing and resets. What do I do?
Boot from the XP CD and log into the Recovery Console. Try fixboot and fixmbr.

Backstory skip if you need I'm fixing someones laptop It was slow and taking minutes to startup i did the usually virus scan and restarted then it was stuck in wont Boot Repair load, load, CD Automatic Windows Loop wont an auto repair loop I used a windows Install CD from microscoft None of the options in it would work install key doesnt match reset missing partition Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop image recovery cant find an image restore no restore point Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop etc Used command prompt did stuff like bootrec bcdedit diskpart and chkdsk After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows I reset reinstalled the OS completely Fixed restarted running smooth Owner said it was working great for a day then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop Now It's stuck in a preair loop I can't even boot from the CD Have it configured in the bios it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for minutes and a blue screen flashes for second saying Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart Collecting some info complete search online for error x a The weird thing is Windows disks boot fine but it's not compatible And if I physically remove the HDD it will boot into the windows CD So I put the HDD back in while still at the command prompt and it wont take my commands in related to the C I get a System cannot find the drive specified I also tried hooking upp the HDD to my PC SATA it shows in explorer but just right clicking it crashes explorer exe Drivers for it fail to update Any idea what is going on How can I get it to boot from the CD or get the command prompt to find C drive or start up when booting with the HDD in the laptop Specs windows core i gb ram TB HDD Years old no important files
I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
Then sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\Windows
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.
I am having issues with one of my laptops, when I press the power button and nothing happens, but If I take out the battery and put it back in, it sound like its going to boot up (power and HD lights come on, cdrom starts), then It shut down. Try to press the power buttonagain and nothing happens. The laptop also will boot up on its own every once in a while, with out me doing anything with it. Also when I go to shut it down, it does a restart instead.
If anyonw have any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
It's a friends pc. I replaced the power supply but that did not fix it. It's not a virus cause it did allow me to install linux. So the cd rom worked through the install. The computer has a lot of dust in it. I was going to blow it out tomorrow. Could it just be dust? Any other ideas.
am not a pro but i know this much atleast cus i have already faced similar problem, the os goes to the loading screen takes long than usual to load and then reboots without getting to the welcome screen right? cleaning surely helpshttp://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/89365-pc-powers-off-during-boot-wont-complete-boot.html
I"m in the process of resurrecting an old Dell XPS 5th GEN. I installed a new hard drive with windows 7 on it but couldn't get it to boot. It froze just after Windows is starting came on the screen. I removed the hard drive from a working computer that has a dual boot, Win 7 and Linux. The Dell still won't boot Windows, it freezes just after announces Windows is starting. I restarted it and tried booting to Linux and it boots Linux just fine. I installed the new drive I bought for the Dell on my other machine and it boots Windows 7 just fine. Both computers are 64 bit and so are the operating systems. Any ideas or suggestions? Thank You.
What size is the hard drive ?http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/322117-win-7-dual-boot-linux-win-7-wont-boot.html

Ok I had left my PC on downloading some torrents which is usual business for me and is probably the most taxing thing it actually does Wouldnt boot then wont booted boot now - - again. I ve got a gb of RAM GHz not OCed and a new Wouldnt boot - then booted - now wont boot again. Asus MB I went back to my computer and noticed it had frozen which was a first on this set-up I did a hard restart and found out I had no video signal I came back the next day and turned the PC on and it was running for a good - minutes before freezing again and now I get no signal again HDD and everything seem to be booting I looked inside to make sure all the fans were on in case something was getting too hot but everything seemed okay While I was moving wires about at one point one did get stuck in the MB fan and when I turned it on it made a lot of noise but I don t think it was actually stuck in there before because it never made the noise before Thanks nbsp
