Reinstall Win 7, Many Missing Drivers

Nov 10, 2009

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?

Boot Manager Missing After Reinstall?

Jan 17, 2013

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?

Apr 26, 2011

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

Feb 5, 2013

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.

Windows 7 Won't Start Or Reinstall, System Partition Missing?

Jul 19, 2012

My specs:

ASUS M5A97 (AM3+) Mobo
AMD Phenom II X4 945
2 x 4GB G-Skill Ripjaw DDR3 RAM
PNY Nvidia GeForce 460 GTX 1GB
A 1TB SATA HDD (can't remember the brand)
A 160GB SATA HDD

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

Aug 29, 2010

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.

Must Reinstall NIC And USB Drivers After Every Reboot

Nov 6, 2009

firstly, I'm running a gigabyte P35 motherboard with a quad core processor and 2 gigs of ram and an Intel chip-set etc. As for hardware, everything is ok and I've had no problems up until now.

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?

Dec 11, 2012

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.

Windows Won't Let Me Reinstall Sound Drivers

Aug 13, 2011

[code]...

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?

Jun 20, 2010

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?

Sep 16, 2012

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.

Windows 7 Installed On SSD - Need To Reinstall Drivers On Boot

Aug 26, 2012

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.

Graphics Drivers Issues After Reinstall / Black Stripes And Slow Redraw

Apr 29, 2012

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"

Aug 8, 2011

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.

Cause Of The Missing CD/DVD Drivers?

Jan 30, 2012

I was starting the process of doing a clean install on my wife's new Dell Inspiron 15R laptop, and I ran into this issue. During the install process, I got the "missing CD/DVD drivers" error when it should have shown her hard drive.The BIOS was updated, and the controller was set to AHCI. I even had gone in an blanked the disk using the clean all command. I tried leaving the drive blank, and I tried creating a 200 GB partition in DISKPART, with no change. I was using a flash drive to do the install...one I've used dozens of times already without issue. My discs were in my office at work, so I ended up downloading a Home Premium SP1 .iso from TechNet and using that. it worked fine, but it still bugs me why my known-good USB flash drive encountered this issueFor laughs, I booted from the flash drive this morning at work on my Latitude E6400 and it worked fine.

Cd/dvd Drivers Missing Error

Jul 26, 2010

When I try to install windows 7 64 bit on my newly-built computer, it gives me the cd/dvd drivers are missing error.I've tried everything that other people have suggested but to no avail.

-Downloaded the .iso file from the engineering department at my school. (Yay for free, legit software!)

-Tried burning two separate disks using imgburn so I thought it was just a bad burn but when I made a bootable usb, the same error occurred.

-Inserting DVD's drivers disk did not work.

-Tried booting without my usb keyboard plugged in.

-The boot device priority is in the correct order.

-DVD drive is in AHCI and USB is set to forced FDD

I am guessing one of two things:

1)Bad download of the .iso file (although Windows 7 32 bit worked perfectly on my laptop)

2)Bios needs to be updated

Specs:

Amd Phenom II 965 BE
Asus M4A88TD-V
G-Skill Ripjaw series 4 Gb DDR3 1600
