With the help of MS Tech Support on the phone [got right through!] he explained how to get rid of all my annoying partitiions. So, both drives were wiped out and made into single primary partitions.
I then installed Vista but had problems with a few of the drivers. A couple of them failed, but they were like 'touchpad' and such. Nothing that I saw as critical.
The minute Vista was complete, I custom installed Win 7 and it went well, execpt that it did say it could not find some drivers--of course, it did NOT say WHICH drivers! It just says, driver missing, click to browse or install.
I have no idea which one, or where it is.
So, rebooted to Win 7 and a few issues:
1: it knows the second hard drive is present and working, but it does not show in My Computer or Explorer. That is my biggest issue.
2: I have been installing second monitors on many machines for years, but this time, Win 7 can't seem to find my large moniitor. It worked before with Vista and it worked before with the first insall of Win 7.
It says missing drivers in the screen shots, but are these Vista drivers it wants? Or Win 7 drivers?
Missing Drivers On Asus A53E Laptop After Reinstall
Because the computer got a virus, we had to completely format and re-install windows 7 on our asus A53E laptop unfortunately it's not without some problems, namely 4 drivers:"pci simple communications controller" "SM bus controller" "network controller" "ethernet controller"..The driver software installation says 'no driver found' And it cannot connect to the internet, so it can't even search for them online
Boot Manager Missing After Reinstall?
i recently got a new SSD and I've installed windows 7 home premium on it. However whenever i boot into my SSD's windows 7, it says that boot manager is missing. In order to boot into windows 7, i would have to change my first boot to my CD, when it asks me to press something to boot cd, i would just leave it. It would then come to a page that allows me to choose from the windows 7 installed on my SSD and the windows 7 installed on my old hard drive.
Formatted HD, Trying To Reinstall Windows 7 - NTLDR Is Missing?
put together my barebones system, installed Windows 7, and everything was great.Then Iinstalled Sony Vegas 10. The next time I tried to boot up, I got several BSODs and couldn't boot in any mode. Everything was not so great.After trying a few things, I formatted the HD in the hopes of starting fresh.Upon first bootup, I got a message saying that "NTLDR is missing."I've tried using the boot CD & USB method described [URL]but it hangs up in a DOS-looking screen on a line that says "[0.762735][<c01034a7>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10"So that's where I am right now.
BootMGR Missing - Unable To Reinstall Windows 7
I have tried reinstalling my windows 7 onto my SSD and am having no luck. I believe I have went through most guides / troubleshooting I could find on this website as well as others. After attempting to use my original cd with no luck, I followed the steps only to have the cd go no further than 73% of the step after "copying windows files". I then burnt / mounted, whatever you'd like to call it (properly) my Win 7 to my Thumb drive and at first windows said BOOTGR is missing.
So than I read to put in the cd, repair it using a command prompt "bootrec /fixboot" which it replied successful. After which I reinserted the flash-drive only to get the same error. I have tried partitioning, "clean all" (not in that order), multiple cds, thumb drives, my friends window 7 cd for giggles to see if I would have any luck, removing a stick of ram, all usb items but the kb/m. Desperate after literally 8 hours of working on this I tried my old copy of windows xp which gave me a blue screen of sorts.

Windows 7 Reinstall On Different HD - Required CD / DVD Device Driver Missing
I am trying to install Win 7 Home Premium on a different HD, I have the original install disks, I boot from the DVD drive and the files load as usual but after selecting language I get the message: A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. How do I resolve this? And also is there any advantage to installing 64 bit, my processor does support it.

My issue is, I'll try to boot into Windows 7 Ultimate x64, not a new installation at all, and I get the "Windows is Starting" screen and the little colored balls, but after a few seconds I get a very very quick blue screen and reboot before Windows even loads. There's no way I can read the blue screen error.So I thought, "Let's just do a startup repair." That didn't work; it said: Quote: Root cause found:The partition table does not have a valid System Partition
Repair action: Partition table repair Result: Completed successfully. Error code = 0x0 Time taken = 20632ms
So I pop in the Windows 7 installation DVD; it tells me there are missing CD/DVD drivers. I point it to the Windows 7 drivers directory on my primary HDD, it still can't find anything.So I load up my copy of MSDaRT. Some tools load, but it tells me "Tool requires a supported offline OS" under many of the tools, and the ones that do start won't do anything at all because they can't "see" my Windows 7 installation. I have an external HDD reader, but I'd rather not have to wipe everything and do a clean reinstall. Maybe trying to fix the partitions with a G-Parted on an Ubuntu Live CD or something?
Missing Operating System Message Cannot Reinstall Windows 7
Shut down PC last night, all working perfectly. Today it won't boot with the "missing operating system" message. Have booted from Windows 7 installation disc, tried startup recovery - took 2 hours before reporting no automatic fix possible. It cannot find an installed Windows OS to do a system restore, so I attempted a "custom" clean re-install. However, I then get a "canot create system partition or find existing one" error message. I have tried to create a "New" one but nothing doing. I don't seem to have any HDD drivers to point to either.
Reinstall All The Drivers?
dual booted my computer with Windows 7 and Windows XP and right now Im trying to reinstall all the drivers I had o nwindows 7 to windows xp. However im starting to wonder if thats even possible? I tried to install the intel extreme graphics driver to windows xp and it doesnt seem to work at all. Is there realy no way to install my drivers on windows XP?
About 4 days ago, after rebooting my pc, I noticed firstly that my internet was not working. My pc was telling me that there was no network available to connect to. I did the usual things like power off my router, unplug the ethernet cable from the pc, restart the pc etc, nothing worked. I then thought that perhaps there was a driver problem. I uninstalled my router, and reinstalled the driver again. Lo and behold, it was working.
However I then noticed under my USB devices in device manager that they all had the little yellow " ! " mark and none were working. I had to uninstall and reinstall all those drivers again, same as with the NIC, and they worked.
I had hoped that this was the end of that bizarre incident but that was not the case. After a reboot, the same thing happened again. Since that time, every reboot has yielded the same results and it is a real pain in the ass to have to reinstall everything again, and again, and again.
I have no idea what the problem could be as I had no updated anything or installed anything new for this to happen. I've been reading through these forums and noticed one person having a similar USB problem but I believe mine may be a little bit different so any light that could be shed on this would be more than appreciated.
Cannot Reinstall OS , It Says There Are No Signed Drivers?
My computer began acting weird a few days ago. The wireless service was not working. I tried manually starting the service but it gave me errors. I decided I would just reset to an earlier config, but to my amazement all of the backups were gone. In addition, I couldn't reset to factory setting, as it gave me weird errors. I thought it might have been a virus or something so I proceeded to wipe the hard drive with some random program I found on cnet. However after starting the program it gave me the BSOD, and now whenever I boot the computer, it would ask me to install the OS. Normally, this would be fine, but whenever I try to install it (from the windows 7 CD), it always gave me a "no signed drivers detected" message near the bottom. On the screen, my hard drive and unused space also do not show up. So now, my computer just sits there without an OS. I am at a loss as to what to do. If anyone needs additional information,
TL;DR: My comp has no OS and I cannot reinstall because it says there are no signed drivers.
How problem came about: The other day i restarted my computer. during the blue "Shutting Down..." screen, my computer said it was installing Windows Updates, "Installing 1 of 99... Do not power off". I pulled the laptop onto my lap and out comes the power plug! (My comp's batteries are shot and relies on the power cord). Well i shut down my computer during the screen that said "installing updates, do not shut down." Since then, audio hasn't worked.
When the computer booted up again, the sound didn't work. So I tried letting windows updates finish updating which it did successfully. But my sound drivers, webcam drivers, and modem drivers don't work and wont install. (Right now i just want to fix my sound).
Windows 7 Erased Drivers And Cannot Reinstall Them?
I recently purchased a Gateway NV7921u and the first thing I did was install Win 7 Ultimate on it as this is what I have on my other PC's. For some reason, now the built-in webcam does not work, the multi-gesture touchpad only utilizes one finger, only half of the touch-sensitive keys work above the keyboard and, most importantly, I can ONLY get on the net WIRELESSLY. If I plug in an Ethernet cable and hardwire it I lose my connection entirely and it is driving me bonkers. Gateway says it is a driver issue so I click the link for say, the webcam driver or the WAN driver and download them (I also use a program called driver detective that does this for me
Laptop OS Reinstall After Ssd Upgrade - No Drivers?
I recently bought a samsung NP-300V5A laptop for compsci at school, and picked it due to the fact that out of all the laptops at microcenter, this one was at a reasonable price with an i7 2670qm, however, coming from building 3 of my own very high end desktops (3930k w/ gtx 690 & ssd's) the 5400 rpm drive just was unbearable, so I went out and picked up a crucial M4, and replaced it. I also bought a copy of windows 7 home premium OEM and tried booting from that dvd, and it would not work, I just got a backlight loop, so I inserted the Samsung recovery install disc, and used it to install windows, worked just the same as any other win7 install, however, my internet is not working now, and my laptop's monitor/display is recognized as a generic nonPnP and won't go to its max resolution.

Upon Reinstall, Lost Wireless Card Drivers?
I had a serious laptop error on my Samsung, and I had to pull the data off my hard drive, then reinstall Windows 7 using a neighbor's installation disk (I lost mine in a move). Now, my laptop thinks it doesn't have a wireless card, so I won't be able to get online wirelessly.

Windows 7 Installed On SSD - Need To Reinstall Drivers On Boot
I recently got a new ssd and installed Windows 7 on it (I used the oem code on the bottom of my laptop [Lenovo Y580] along with the iso from digitalriver). It's been... well, as good as you can expect windows to be up until yesterday. When I booted the laptop into Windows, I had no internet despite having an ethernet cable connected. I checked to make sure it wasn't just my router. Sure enough, wifi and ethernet work perfectly in Ubuntu. I went into windows again and checked if I had the latest drivers. I did, so I tried reinstalling them and everything worked fine. Until I restarted. Every single time I restart I need to reinstall my wifi and ethernet drivers. It takes seconds, but it's still annoying and shouldn't be happening.
Have To Reinstall Sound-card Drivers Every-time When Start The PC?
I have a xFI sound-card and every time I start my PC I have to reinstall the card's drivers. I have 2 pci slots on my board and an ATI pci express Radion. When I put the card in the other slot right next to the graphics card it works no problem what so ever accept it is blocking the graphics card fan and the GPU heat doubles so this is not acceptable.I have tried a audigy sound card in the slot and it works OK.
Cannot Install New Graphics Card Drivers - Forcing To Reinstall Windows 7
I just recently got a new SSD and wanted to start fresh with a new Windows 7 install. Thus I dc'd everything and successfully installed windwos 7 professional. However, after I update my graphics card driver (Radeon HD 5xxx series). I get a screen without icons, start menu or anything except the background. Pressing CTR-ALT-DEL gives me a blackscreen, forcing me to reinstall windows again. I tried different version of Catalyst control center (10.4 and the latest one) and they both give the same error.
Graphics Drivers Issues After Reinstall / Black Stripes And Slow Redraw
Recently I decided to finally reinstall my Windows 7, since it was ~2yrs old and getting slower each day. I used the official MSDN Windows 7 Professional ISO SP1 and did a clean install. Unfortunately, I've been having this problem which I can't solve no matter what. It seems to me that there's some graphics issues - When resizing any window, it takes some tome while it redraws it's contents, you can actually see it updating the contents.Also, there's some sort of flickering involved as well.Machine in question is: HP ProBook 4515s With AMD/ATi HD 4330, running Windows 7 32bit SP1.I have tried the following, without success:
- the default drivers on the HP website - the drivers provided by windows update service - latest mobile drivers from AMD - modded drivers with Mobility Modder - Aero On / Aero Off / Disabling every visual effect - Updating BIOS - Doing the same on x64 version of windows.
I have DirectX updated, and all other patches and drivers should be there as well.
"iTunes Cannot Run Because Some Of Its Required Files Are Missing. Please Reinstall ITunes"
I use iTunes on my Windows 7 computer to sync with my iPhone, and the last time I went to open iTunes it gave me the error message "iTunes cannot run because some of its required files are missing. Please reinstall iTunes."I had heard that if I uninstalled Quicktime (which is bundled with iTunes when that is downloaded), then reinstalled it separately, it would work again, but after trying that it didn't. So I decided to just uninstall iTunes, then reinstall it. However, every time I try to uninstall it in Add/Remove Programs, it just sits there saying it'll be about eight more seconds to go to finish deleting, but it just sits, and sits, and sits...... Nothing. I also tried to just install the newest iTunes on top of the existing one, but every time I try it tells me that it's already installed and to click "Ok." So I can't uninstall it, nor can I install it, nor will iTunes open on its own. I had done a system restore recently, so I don't know if that had anything to do with it.
