Problem booting after installing windows 7

Q: Problem booting after installing windows 7

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?

Preferred Solution: Problem booting after installing windows 7

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

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

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

A:Booting problem after installing W7 updater and first set of updates

Sounds like your injecting drivers into a driver-complete OS like it's XP. This can cause exactly the problems you're experiencing. Win7 provides the drivers in installer and via Updates. You only need the network driver in backup in case it doesn't start up connected so you can install it to get online and get Updates. Don't inject any of your own drivers until after all Updates are done, then any missing in Device Manager (or if Standard VGA is given for Display) you can import from the Device's or PC's Support Downloads webpage.

Which version of Win7 do you actually own? Why are you trying to install another version than the one you own?

There is no reason to run any more than Diskpart Clean Command and it is only needed if there are installation failures. Otherwise just delete all partitions each time and create/format new. But for a diagnostic install we will have you do just the Clean command.

Install and check now the SMART condition of HD using CrystalDiskInfo - Software. If it shows warnings then Test your HD with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan followed by a full Disk Check

Do a diagnostic install where you wipe Clean the drive, create/format install partition, install Win7 with ethernet wire connected to increase chance it starts up connected - if not install ethernet or wireless driver to get online.

Then enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3),
check for Updates and install Optional Drivers first, reboot, check performance. Then check for Updates again then install small groups of Updates which will each set a Restore point. Check performance after each group. If any causes a problem, System Restore to before that group and install each of those Updates singly to try to pinpoint the problem update to post back in our Updates forum. Do this until all Updates are installed, then continue by installing programs testing performance after each.

If you stick with these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then you will achieve and maintain a perfect install for as long as you do.

A:Booting problem after installing graphics driver

Can you boot in to safe mode from F8. If so try going into safe mode and deleting the graphics driver. See then if you can boot into windows . If so run a check disk.See if this helps. Plus make sure all your chip drivers for your mother board are installed.

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.

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: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".========================================================================

Recently I purchased a laptop with windows 8 64 bit pre-installed in it. For my job purpose, I needed windows 7 32 bit. After searching the web and also using the information I got from this site, I disabled secure boot, deleted the recovery partition and converted GPT partitions to MBR. Then I shrink the Big partition in which windows 8 was installed to make room for the windows 7 partition. Then I created a new partition and installed windows 7 on it. After this whenever I switch on the computer, a message come up, saying that a required device cannot be found and windows is to be repaired. The only way in which I can start windows is to go to bios, select the boot options and then select boot from notebook hard drive.

Can anybody please tell me how this problem can be solved

A:Booting problem with dual booting with windows 8 and 7

when you created the new partition did you make itin front or behind the existing partition?

If your boot manager is looking to boot Win 8 on Disk 0 Part 1, and you created the new partition in front of Win 8, your Win 7 will now be located on Disk 0 Part 1 which is where the boot manager is expecting Win 8

can you send us a screen cap of your disk management?

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.

I have been having major issues lately with my HP Pavilion DV t laptop running Windows Professional The computer is about years old and has had no issues up until about two weeks ago At the time I started to have trouble loading windows The OS would often Even OS Computer stops the booting 7 Reformatting/Re-installing Windows After fail to load and generate a blue screen error Computer stops booting Windows 7 Even After Reformatting/Re-installing the OS and reboot itself before the windows loading screens had completed cycling through Afterwards the PC would typically fail to start if I rebooted it again and instead prompt me to run windows repair and or system restore At first running those utilities would fix the issue and the computer would work again for a Computer stops booting Windows 7 Even After Reformatting/Re-installing the OS day or two However I found that these problems would just start up again soon afterwards and that I was eventually unable to start up windows at all At this point I was even unable to even boot up safe mode The drivers for safe mode would start to load but then the loading sequence would eventually freeze up and nothing would happen often the computer would just crash after a few minutes After the PC tried to prompt me to do system repair a few times after crashing or producing a BSOD error it eventually would not work anymore and I would have no way to access windows It would also not let me conduct system restore after going through the routine of not loading windows a few times After I got to this point I decided to just go ahead and reformat the whole computer and reinstall windows from scratch Every other option I had such as repairing the current windows installation was not working at that point After I did this and re-installed the OS it appeared to fix the problem at first However the computer ended up having the same issues I had in the first place where windows would not load the not long after I had done a complete reformat reinstall It would then again prompt me to do a system repair system restore like I did before I reformatted the PC only to end up almost completely inoperable soon afterwards Since I first reformatted the PC I have done a reformat reinstall about times only to end up with the same result I should note that it appears that everything runs fine until I go to install the drivers for my ethernet wireless card which is the first driver I need after doing a full re-install Once I get connected to the internet the computer will crash following a BSOD error but then restart and act normal for a while It is not until the next day or about - hours after having the computer shutdown that it will not boot up into windows It doesn't seem to matter if I reboot or shutdown the computer multiple times soon after reformatting it I should also note that I have tried a number of anti-virus anti-spyware programs after re-installing windows to see if that may be causing the issue I ran superantispyware Malwarebytes anti-spyware anti-rootkit Kaspersky anti-rootkit CCleaner and Avast anti-virus but came up with no issues Does anyone think this is a software related issue or that this may be due to a hardware issue I feel that the computer wouldn't turn on at all or wouldn't let me re-install windows in the first place if it was a major hardware issue causing these problems Let me know what you think I could do to help get my PC to work again Thanks

A:Windows 7 Booting problem

Hi,
Let's try the easy stuff first. (1) Turn off the computer, disconnect the power supply and remove the battery for about 30 seconds ( turn the computer over and you will see two catches. Operate these and the battery will slide out ). Put the battery back in, re-connect the power supply and re-start. This cures a lot of problems !  If this doesn't work, then,
 
(2)  Turn the computer on again, and, while the BIOS screen is showing - that's the screen before it says 'Windows Starting' -press the F8 key a couple of times. This will either bring up a list of drives on the computer - in which case use the up and down arrow keys to select the hard drive, then press enter - or it will bring up a black screen with white text with, near the top, reference to various forms of 'Safe Mode'.
 
Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select 'Safe Mode with Networking' and press 'Enter'. this should start the computer running. It will look odd, a black screen with large icons in an array, but this is normal. Let it finish starting in safe mode then click on the 'Start' button and shut it down. Then re-start it, and with a bit of luck it will work normally again.
 
If none of the above works, come back here but with details of the make and model of the computer.

Windows started to boot quite slowly, so I entered the repair DVD, and clicked on Repair your computer, and I got a message that said something like "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?". also got something like identifier:9dea862c-5cdd-4e70-acc1-f32b344d4795 and Partition : D: , but I only have C: partition, I don't get it, is this problem related to the slow booting I encounter or something else? or should I click on repair?

So, I have had a problem for a long time booting windows. I get so far and then i have to choose between "Windows XP Home" or "Windows XP professional". If i dont choose windows XP home, and choose Proffesional then I have to manually shut down and restart, which means i have to stay with my computer whilst it boots. I have never had a problem like this before. Anyone got any ideas. Also i think this might have something to do with my audio problems.

Thanks in Advance.

A:Windows XP Booting Problem

Hello mpabari

A corrupted NTFS.sys is usually caused by a physical bad hard disk, corrupted filesystem or bad memory.


Quote:




I also put a Windows disk in, booted from the CD/DVD drive and once loaded selected the R for repair option but came up with the following message




Which "R" are you referring to?
There is an "R" for the Recovery Console and an "R" much further on in setup to do a "Repair" of XP

If you have not tried the "R" for the Recovery Console, try using it now to replace NTFS.sys
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;822800

If you cannot access the Recovery Console, it will be a case of testing some hardware.

Please test the hard drive first

If you don't know the make of hard drive Hitachi Drive Fitness Test will work with any make.

Download the CD image and burn it. Boot up with CD to test the drive

We have had problems with the about:blank virus so was trying to correct this and downloaded a free trial of Panda anti-virus. When I tried to reboot, now Windows will come up but it just sits there. I am pretty sure that I just have to many programs downloaded (should have deleted Norton first) so it is probably a memory overload. But no matter how long I wait (even let the computer sit overnight) Windows will not boot up completely so I can't delete Panda or Norton. Can't do anything... Is there a way that I can delete one of these programs using recovery console? I tried booting in Safe Mode but it still does the same thing.

Hi all,

In BIOS, I tried the CDROM, Removeable device, and IBA.. in the BOOT PRIORITY tab but the system halted. When I inserted the WinXP disc, it just wanted to setup Windows XP, which was already installed in the computer when I first bought it. My question is: is there something I can do to sucessfully boot the computer without having to resintall Windows XP, or to reformat my harddrive?

Ok first and foremost the pc being worked on is an emachines pc. Now I had a problem with this computer once before where the computer shut down on its own and would not restart. I reformatted the hard-drive and re-installed windows XP with the emachines boot disc. The computer has worked fine for about 4 months since then and now it is doing the same thing again... it shut down on its own initially and when I restarted it, it never made it past the windows xp loading screen before shutting down. One time I got it to boot in safe mode and had it to the desktop and then it shut down, and now it won't even let me run the boot disc before it crashes. Any help will be much appreciated.

A:Problem Booting Windows

go into your BIOS and find the option for boot order, if you are booting off your hard drive make sure it is first on the list and this may solve your problem. if something goes wrong and your computer doesn't boot after that make sure you remember the original order and change it back to what it was.

A:WINDOWS XP SP2 BOOTING PROBLEM

Hi

When you get the startup menu with Safe Mode etc try
"Last known good configuration", and if that does not work try
"Disable restart on system failure".

Hopefully the first option will get you back into windows or the second option will give you a blue screen.
If you do get a blue screen let us know what it says. The blue screen should have some kind of bugcheck code (eg. 0x0000000f4) and might mention a file name.

Hi all, Currently I have a dell computer, running on windows 7 32bit. Upon starting the computer i am brought to a black screen with two options. number one, run repair, Number two, Continue with loading, upon clicking the first one a gray bar appears that says "Windows is loading files" and simply stays there indefinitely, upon clicking the second one the computer restarts and brings me back to the black screen with two options. I downloaded a windows 7 repair disk and placed it in my computer and booted it from there, and got past the previous problem, where this time I come upon the setup of windows, where i'm asked what language and keyboard format etc, then it asks for a "computer image" which I don't have, and have no way of getting, Please help, I'm sorry if anything seems unclear, currently I'm writing this on a family members laptop.

Any luck trying to get into Safe Mode by tapping F8? If you can, try a System Restore and or chkdsk/f. In the future, there are free programs that image your HD and it's worth having a backup as you see.

Is this the same PC that you installed the OS? It won't work otherwise.

Try removing other HDDs and see if it will boot?

I just recently upgraded my video card to an ATI x800 and was having some issues (screen was shaking). Turns out it was bad/old drivers. I uninstalled the bad ones which solved the problem, downloaded the newest ones, installed, and upon reboot, I get a black screen. I get the black screen at the point where it would normally load the desktop (after the windows logo is displayed with the little progress bar). Can anyone give me any advice on what to do? I can access the bios and I can also access the boot menu (but haven't had any luck with either). If I could boot to a previous point where things were working better or even access safe mode and delete the new driver package, that'd be great. Any suggestions? I'm sort of at my wits end as I've had 1 problem after another. Thanks for any and all help. I appreciate it.

Hi sawtoothgrin
You should be able to access safe mode with F8 or the key you use as soon as the bios screen as gone.
What you need to do is to clean your video drivers before you up date to the latest.Google driver cleaner pro it is free and safe.Read up on how to use it ,it is easy but always make sure you are in safemode when you clean.
Boot into safe mode and remove your video drivers then reboot and download driver cleaner
then reboot back into safe mode and clean you video drivers reboot and if you are sure your new drivers are not corrupt reinstall them.
Good luck

Alright when I start windows it asked me to select which way I would like to start it, Normally, Safe Mode Etc... If i pick the normal startup i get a blue screen and an error message, but if i choose to use safe mode it works good.. No problems at all with it works really good in safe mode, but wont start normally. Any Help Would Be Appreciated, Thanks.

A:Windows XP Booting Problem?

Sounds like a driver or other application component has failed.

You installed any new software/hardware recently???

Try using the "last known good" option.

If that fails try booting to safe mode the use system restore.

Ok. So ever since about 9:30 two days ago, my own computer has not been able to start up at all. I took the hard drive out of that computer, attached it to another laptop (via a device called 'BlacX'), and ran scans on it to find out that it was infected with a Boot.Tidserv.

Several scans later (norton, malwarebytes, and even GMER), no Boot.Tidserv was found. However, returning my hard drive to my laptop still does not let me start windows.

Any solutions I have tried finding all lead to having the Windows 7 startup disk, which I don't have.

Is it still possible to fix my hard drive?


*edit* and No matter which Msinfo.exe I run, It gives the information on the current computer, not my hard drive

A:Having a problem booting Windows 7

Press the F8 key repeatedly at boot up or use the Startup disk.

Try this:
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery
System Repair Disc - Create

As you have had a nasty,it may be better to reinstall.
Can you post the make & model of the notebook.

If you have a External HD, you could copy & paste your data.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
than copy & paste your data into new install.

A:Problem with Windows XP booting up

How old is the computer? What is the brand and model of computer or motherboard? How old is the hard drive.
This error can be caused by a lot of problems including driver failure of any of a number of components, memory module failure, power supply failure on one rail, CPU fan failure, or corrupt Windows install.
But the likely cause is a failed hard drive.
First test is to see if it will boot in SAFE MODE. Cold boot your computer by pressing the on button, then immediately tap the <F8> key once per second until you get the notice that it is booting in Safe Mode.
If it will fully boot in Safe Mode, then perhaps it is not the hard drive, and you can look for a video graphics port error which could be a hardware or driver failure.

Then to get out of Safe Mode, try

Start->Run-> sfc /scannow

My guess is that the hard drive is failing. The floppy drive is churning, and probably the optical drive as well, because Windows is seeking a boot device. This can mean that part of the hard drive boot sectors (First 8 sectors) are bad and cannot be repaired. Time to get a new hard drive.
The fact that you see the beginnings of a Windows boot means you have a 67% chance of rescuing your data using this old hard drive in a USB enclosure after you load windows onto the new drive... then dragging an dropping the old data, or using a recovery program.

Get back to us with brand and model and we will attempt to be more helpful.

A:[SOLVED] Windows XP Booting Problem

Hi there,

With this issue there could be hardware problems for sure. First may I ask do you have spare parts to try on your mom's computer? One thing I recommend going to the manufacturer's website of the computer's hard-drive, download the diagnostics utility, put the program onto a CD, and boot the computer to it. There test the HDD for any errors. If there are errors detected then the hard-drive is bad and you will need to backup the data ASAP.

Another thing you can is to use another power supply. Bad power supplies can show symptoms just like the stuff happening to your mom's computer. Test a spare power supply and see if the problem goes away.

Test a spare videocard on the computer and see if the problem lies with the videocard. Hope this will help you out.

Hi

I?m afraid this could be an serious hardware issue.
For me it sounds like an GPU (graphic chip) problem.
This would explain the lines on the screen and the problems with system installation.

This would be the worst case. Faulty graphic chip cannot be replaced because it?s soldered mostly on the motherboard.

Well, what to say? you could get in contact with an local technician in order to check the parts but I think it?s GPU issue?

A:Problem booting Notebook - Windows Seven

Maybe it has something to do with the long time between using it.
Try to first fully charge the laptop and then retry
If charging won;t succeed, remove the battery pack and use mains power and retry. In that case your battery may be broken.

Hello guys,

My friend gave me his laptop to boot windows XP on it. Laptop is: GERICOM HUMMER 2230e
The laptop had windows 7 OS on it (but it was too slow because the configuration is poor, 512MB ram, 2.2gHZ processor). So I put Windows XP bootable CD and started installation. All went good till the step " Copying files" ( the step after formating disk, btw I haveformated disk). After that laptop restarted and I got message like: " OS couldnt be load, system error... Now when I turn on laptop I just see GERICOM logo and nothing else, everything stuck. When I press F2 I get this message: Screenshot by Lightshot

A:Problem with booting windows XP on laptop - please help

Hello midho and Welcome to PCHF

Windows XP did not support SATA HDD out of the box.
Support for SATA started with Service Pack 3.
If you slipstream SP3 (see here how http://winsupersite.com/windows-xp/s...ice-pack-3-sp3) you can have a new installation disk that will work.

Just to make sure everything else is OK, use the BIOS diagnostic and check the HDD before you do anything else.

A:RAM upgrade problem..windows not booting

It could be compatibility issues. Double check the physical connection and verify that it's seated correctly. Go into the BIOS and verify the amount of memory detected with the amount physically installed. If that's all good, ther shouldn't be any beeps and it should take you to the menu with the options. Select last known config that worked, and if no go, turn off the pc and reset the CMOS or pull out the battery for a minute and reinstallng it to see if that fixed it. Upon restarting, make sure everything in the BIOS is set to how you've had it configured.

You probably need to do a diskpart clean on the SSD to remove the old bios system completely, and then clone the HD to the SSD.

Kindly tel me how to use both os such that one OS should be in one hard disk and other should be in another hard disk.
 

A:Problem while booting OS (windows xp ND LINUX)

FROM A SIMILAR THREAD
As both Operating systems have been set up when they were the only O/S in the eystem, it's difficult to get them to play nicely with each other now.
You have a few options and I'll list them in order of easiest to hardest:
1) Plug both drives in and control the bootup by enabling and disabling each drive in the system BIOS. (When you boot up press F1, Del or Esc or whatever your "Setup" key is).
2) Plug in both drives with Windows drive as primary master. Boot your Fedora disc and install Grub to the root of the Windows Drive. Note: Fedora may still not boot in which case you progress to step 3.
(Super Grub Disk http://www.supergrubdisk.org/ )
3) Do step 2 but over-install Fedora but make sure you don't reformat your existing /Home partition.

Hi there,
I had windows 7 installed on a new partition on my pc which had XP Pro on the C drive. After removing windows 7 home premium and deleting the partition, I still get a choice at bootup -
use older windows version
0r windows 7
I have to choose the older version every time I boot up which is very annoying.
My question is does anybody know a fail safe way of removing this 'choice' so it boots straight in to XP?

I do have an XP disc but it's only XP Pro Sp 1. I downloaded Sp2 and 3 from the Microsoft website and put them on a CD.

I just installed windows xp on an old compaq presario computer I have. The installation went fine, and everything was running perfectly. But the computer froze and I had to reboot it. Now it will not boot up at all. It doesn't even get to loading windows xp, it just stops with a flashing cursor on the screen over the Compaq logo. I cannot access the bios screen or anything. I tried to reboot from the installation disc, and that doesn't work either. Please help!!!
