Error During Install

Jul 9, 2009

I was installing windows with a clean install and everything went smooth.

The installation got to "completing installation" and after about 15 minutes, i heared few "beeps" from the computer (not the speakers).

the computer restarted itself and then installed the registery files...

after that, it went to a blue screen with a flower (like in the start of the install) and said: "Starting Services ".

after about a 4 seconds, it said: "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation"

when i clicked on "OK" the computer restarted it self and repeat to show the message.

i tried to redownload and reburn but it repeat it self, both 64bit ver. and 32bit ver. so it isnt a corrupted file.

i got no other OS on my computer, because after 4 years my computer started to slow down, so everyone told me to format, so i formated the computer and wanted to install windows 7 so i got no other computer to play games on (im using a old laptop right now).

can anybody help?

DirectX Install Error - An Internal System Error Occurred

Dec 17, 2011

I recently re-installed windows and am now trying to install the DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). All goes well, it installs everything, but as it finished I get this error: I have tried redownloading, using other installers and updating my graphics drivers. Nothing will work. It's probably worth mentioning that the first time I tried installing, about a week ago, my computer totally froze in the middle of the install and I had to force restart.

It is saved to the desktop!

Error 0x80070570 During Install

Nov 15, 2009

I have tried looking this up before I posted this, but all I can find is people getting this error from a downloaded copy or from it being burned to a CD. I am getting this error from a bought copy of windows 7 and i am not sure how I can fix it. I have tried everything from getting new harddrives thinking the harddrive was bad, buying a new CD player thinking it wasn't reading it right, and even trading out the windows 7 DvD itself thinking the DvD was bad.

I can't figure out why it is saying the files are missing or corrupt when it is being installed from a store bought copy. My system is a custom build computer with more then the what is needed for requirements to install the OS.

Error During Clean Install

Jun 26, 2009

I have an old Dell XPS Gen2 desktop that is running WinXP. I wipped my Raid0 hard drives to perform the install of Windows7. After helping the setup see my raided hard drives, I started the install.

After the second step in the installation process I keep getting an error message that says something like: "Windows could not configure your computer's boot sequence. The installation could not continue"

Does anyone know what I'm missing? Could my bios be too out of date for this setup? or is it something else?

Install Error With Igdkmd32.sys

Aug 11, 2009

I've tried to install Windows 7 numerous times. It gets through the entire process and then I get a blue screen of death at the "Completing Installation" screen.

It says there is a problem with igdkmd32.sys which is an Intel graphics accelerator driver.

The thing is, when doing a search, I don't have that file on my computer at all. My only graphics driver in the system area is my GeForce 7600GS. There is nothing showing the Intel one so nothing to disable.

How can I fix this and get Windows 7 installed?

Seven Install Error (Very Weird)

Nov 7, 2009

Basically my friend asked me to install seven on his laptop for him so that it would dual boot his current os and seven. Both are 32 bit so thats ok. The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5920, and had two partitions on the laptop when I looked at it. The main one was for vista and it was called ACER. The second seemingly has no purpose and he never used it and was called DATA. So I thought that it would be easy enough, just format the DATA partition and install seven on it.

So I started up the win-7 install disc and installed it to the DATA partition after formatting it with the win-7 partitioning tools. This was ok and at the end of installation it wanted to restart and I let it. It then rebooted and completed setup. This should be it done. So I removed the disc and booted like normal, the windows boot manager came up like ususal giving me the choice of what os to boot into, so I booted into vista to check it was all right. It was. So then I decided I would go ahead and set up his user and all for him so I booted into seven. I managed to set it up and it once again (like normal) wanted to restart. So it did...

But now it boots past the bios screen and nothing appears. Even after 10 minutes nothing loads. Only a single underslash i.e. _ flashes. (EDIT: This is the BSOD!) The bootloader doesn't even appear! Just the underslash! I have never encounted this problem before and I am extremely confused as to why this has happened! I tried the install again but the same result came up.

64-Bit Install Error - 0x80070241

May 11, 2009

I've installed Windows 7 32-Bit RC1 on my desktop without issues using Daemon tools and mounting the ISO and installing to a separate partition, that's all very peachy. The original OS was Vista HP 32-bit.

Can't say the same for my laptop running Vista HP 64-Bit. Using the same method, the installer gets to about 12% and then comes with this error.

Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070241

I've downloaded more then 10 GB in the past 3 days re-downloading .ISO from both the Microsoft site and Bittorrent sites and seeing if they're corrupted. They're not. I get the same error every single time. Something else is the problem.

I tried installing BOTH the 32-bit and 64-bit inside my Laptop Vista 64 bit OS and I get the same error.

I've also unzipped the .ISO to my drive and tried installing that way. Same deal. Why did my Desktop go so smooth but my laptop is a living hell?

Cannot Install New Os Due To Partition Error

i tried to change the partition of my laptop but while in the process, i got an error. when i tried to reboot it, it already says disk error. so i tried to reinstall windows but after the "press any key to boot from cd" msg, i only get a blank screen. now i cant reformat my hard disk and cant reinstall any os on it. i even tried hiren's boot cd but i always get a blank screen after booting from it.

i cant also start the laptop on safe mode or even the last known good configuration. when i tried the safe mode, it says about the partition error (long lines of error like "partition (0)disk...system..." something. i am most certain that the cause was the erroneous or interrupted partitioning.

Kaspersky Error During Install

Oct 25, 2009

I am trying to upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium and I am getting an error saying the installation cannot continue because Kaspersky anti-virus is stopping the process. It asks me to look for it in the Control Panel and uninstall it.

Now, I would be happy to do so, but as far as I know, I have never installed Kaspersky AV, nor does it appear in the programs to uninstall. I have seen that there are a few people around who have had this problem, but I have seen to resolution to it, other than suggesting that a clean install be done. Obviously I can do that, but I really want to avoid it. I have too much stuff I'd have to re-install.

I have tried disabling other virus programs (as far as I know, I only have one provided by my ISP). I disabled Windows Defender. I also banged my head against a wall.

Anyone seen this? Why would it think a program is there, when it is not.

Windows 7 Install Error: 0x80070057

May 20, 2011

I am trying to install windows 7 ultimate x64 on a new build, I am getting the error in thread title when it begins to install. I've scoured this forum to see what others had similar issues and tried the fixes. I tried with one stick of ram, tried re-burning the iso, i've used 3 different discs one 32 bit the other 2 x64. The funny thing is, I have installed ubuntu 10.10 succesfully from a usb flash drive, but could not install ubuntu from a disc. The ubuntu cd was not a burnt copy but a legit disc i ordered from canonical. the windows install wizard lets me create partitions and delete them, it even looks like it tried to format the hard drive because when i go to attempt to install again evidence of the previous failure is there as a system and primary partition. since the 10.10 installation from flash drive went without a problem i do not believe there is a problem with the hard drive. the dvd drive is sata and is connected properly.

my system info is as follows

amd athlon II x4 630 cpu at 2.8
4gb ram
asus m4a78lt-m motherboard
wd caviar black 640gb HD sata
lite-on dvd multi recorder sata
ati xfx 512 mb video card

my boot settings go to the hdd first and i tried using the popup menu to boot from disc, for some reason it looks like it has a problem writing from the dvd drive to the hard disk.

Unable To Install, No Error Message

I have a valid, working copy of Windows 7 build 7000x32 on disk. The same disk has been used on other computers and works fine. However on my machine, it begins the installation just fine, until it reaches the blue Windows 7 background screen. Then it stops. No error, it just stops working.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I find it extremely frustrating.

Error When Trying To Boot Install Disc

Sep 6, 2009

I recently downloaded a copy of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit through MSDN, burned the iso to a dvd using ImgBurn (Auto write speed) and then attempted to boot the disc.

The computer tries to load the files off the disc, and then this error pops up:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

File: windowsystem32ootwinload.exe

status: 0xc0000001

info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

I checked the file location, and the file was there. I decided to do a factory image restore (probably stupid of me) since I had already backed up all my files and was planning on doing a clean install of 7 anyway.

I then tried the boot again, but got the same error, even though I was under the impression that factory restore would fix any corrupted system files. Since, for all intents and purposes, my computer is "new", and there's nothing on it now except for what came with it, I'm at a loss as to what could be causing the problem.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1720, running Vista 32 bit Home Premium. Intel Core Duo processor, 2.4 GHz.
