On the Neo Smart website, there is a link to create a emergency boot/repair disc. It's a torrent download (165MB for Win 7 64 bit), they also have the 32 bit as well as Vista 32 & 64 bit discs. It was the first time I have ever done a torrent file, so I done it on my XP laptop. And it is legal, it was said that Microsoft provided these discs. And if you have any questions about it, there is a forum as well. The website is: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/window...-repair-disks/
The best that I could do was manually type it in, I don't know how to copy & paste or whatever it's called. I had to figure out how to do the torrent thing myself, I'm sure there are many of you who are more experienced. I did create a disc as soon as I got this PC going, but it's better to have another just in case. And I felt it would be good to share this with you all, because I've received a lot of pointers here, and if anyone gets in a jam, I hope that it's useful.
I made a WinPE Emergency disk for recovery, I also made a partition backup of my system which I put on a USA 1TB external drive.Nothing is wrong with my system but I just wanted to check to see if I could access the backup image. But when I boot from the CD I get past the 'Windows is loading files' page, then to a different page with the EaseUS lgo, but the load ba only goes 1/8th of the way before my computer reboots itself.The same thing happens if I use the EaseUS Linux version of the CD.Could it be an error made during the burn process?
Have a netbook with Windows 7 Starter. It dualboots with Linux. My plan is to remove the Linux partition to make space on the hard disk. Obviously then the boot information, which is a GRUB, should be corrected. How can you edit this ahead of time, to allow a boot with a single entry? A netbook has no disk drive, so there is no repair disk available.
I've got a CyberPower desktop computer which has worked great for over a year now. I was having some problems with my hard drive and so I started to attempt to improve it by first doing a disk check and then disabling some programs launching when the computer starts, making sure not to touch the Microsoft ones. Now when I start my computer I'm greeted with a message from the windows boot manager saying "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" the status is "0xc000000f and the info is "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". The major problem that I'm having is that when I put in the CyberPower disc which contains Windows 7, it seems to just ignore it! What can I do?
Today I booted up my computer and got a screen saying something went seriously wrong with my computer and that I should repair it from an installation disk. I load up windows onto a USB, boot it and click the repair option. It's been about half an hour and nothing has shown up. Is it still loading or perhaps something is very wrong with my PC?
Created it with no problems, apparently at least. My BIOS is set to boot from CD drive, so why won't my machine boot from the system repair disk? There were no errors when disk was created. My machine just boots to windows.
Anyone else experience this with Win 7 Professional?
After I got my new laptop, I installed antivirus, windows updates, etc, removed bloatware and installed the software that I actually use. Then I created my System Repair disk (single disk). Does this disk include all software and windows updates that were on my computer at the time I created the disk? I have read that System Repair disks will only have the factory settings of Windows 7, but I don't know if this is the case for all System Repair disks or only those that came with the computer and were made before the computer was purchased?I've also read that a System Repair disk could include a system image. Is this true and done by default when the System Repair disk is created?
I am now trying to use another persons windows 7 home premium disk to reinstall my operating system because my computer only came with a partition devoted to windows 7 installation and has errors which must be the reason that my sfc /scannow has never worked.Now my question is this. This disk from a friend of mine is probably pirated as it is just a silver verbatim dvd that has windows 7 home premium written in blue highlighter.What I want to know is will this override my real version of windows that came with my pc
today i found that my windows 7 64 bit ultimate os was unable to boot.after many restart finally i used my system repair disk. disk did work and i m able to boot nowbut can anyone give me some insight about what went wrong in the first place. just dont want this type of problem in the future.
I have a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5132 that just shut down & now will not boot Windows 7. Just goes to black screen w/blinking cursor then goes to 'startup repair' (which I'm postiive this is a virus of somekind) & will not allow me to do anything. Just repeats itself. I downloaded Windows 7 repair to a CD-R, chgd BIOS settings to CD/DVD to boot first, saved changes, and will NOT pull/boot up from disc. I've tried 2diff repair discs, both do not work. 'F8' does not do anything for me, not able to get to 'safe mode'. Computer is only 2yrs old.
I did a search in the Windows 7 forum for system repair disc and got no hits so here I am asking.I have only Windows 7 32-bit installed here so I don't have a 64-bit system with which to create a system repair disk. I do have a Windows 7 Ultimate setup disk. How can I make a Windows 7 64-bit repair disk?
I have a Dell notebook wiht Windows 7 64-bit that is getting a BSOD (0xF4) and I'm fairly certain is was caused by a rootkit, although I'm not 100% certain. One debugger shows wininit.exe as the culprit and another shows the kernel itself. At any rate, the system will not boot. It gets to where the login dialog is about to show and gets the BSOD. It will not boot in safemode either.Anyway, I've tested the hard drive and memory and I'm fairly certain that it is corrupted and/or rootkit files that is the problem. So I've booted to a Windows 7 repair disk and ran SFC and it tells me that files are corrupted and it can't fix them.Normally I would check the CBS.log file to see what's up, but I'm not sure where the log file is when running SFC from the repair disk. I've searched the "X" drive and the "C" drive, but there's no log files.
I have a problem which I can't seem to fix. I have 2 laptops, both dvd drives are not working. I have an external Usb drive that won't work under boot up. Laptops don't recognise it until drivers are loaded.Hp pavilion dv6500 won't boot. Mbr is damaged. Can't use repair disk as won't recognize Usb drive.So I put hdd into my other laptops 2nd hdd port " Hp pavilion Dv9800 and repaired boot sector that way. Tested it on dv9800 and boots fine.Put hdd back into dv6500 and get same mbr fail message.
I think I must have lost Windows Installer using Revo uUninstaller and messed up the registry somehow. I'm a bit afraid to use the Win 7 repair disk 32 bit I created; I might mess things up further. I've tried to download a 32 bit installer update to no avail; it says it's not compatible with my version of Windows (Professional, SP1). Anyhow, does the Win 7 repair disk have a fix for the lost Win 7 installer? If so, I might give it a try if you can provide some guidance in doing so. I have everything backed up in Carbonite, Seagate external drive, Acronis True Image, memory sticks, etc.
I have an issue with my desktop PC. I believe I have a corrupted system file since the HDD is no longer bootable; however I have been able to remove the infected drive and install it as a slave on my HTPC. This has allowed me to backup all my important files.My question... I'd like to run a Repair on the existing Windows 7 install but I never created a rescue disk when the OS was operational. Can I create a repair disk using my Windows 7 OS off the HTPC and run it over my desktop PC? Or is the disk specific to the PC the OS belongs to.
I have a few errors on one of my Hard Drives that I would like to fix I have run the built in error repair program in Win 7 but still have these errors, I was wondering if there was a specific program that is free that will correct this at all. If so can anybody point me in the right direction ??
We just acquired a new laptop with Win7 HP preloaded. One of the first things I did was try to make a System Repair CD (Start/All Programs/Maintenance/Create a System Repair Disc). The CD burning process seemed to go normally. When I tried to run the disc, it seemed to load normally until it got to a screen with the "streaks in the sky" wallpaper and then it stopped. There were no menus, messages, or anything except the wallpaper. I made two discs using a name brand with the same result. I know disc quality used to be an issue but I didn't think this was so these days among the name brands.
When I recently tried to boot up my system all I could get is a blank screen. Tried to boot up using Windows 7 repair disk but it goes into a loop at the "starting windows" screen consequently won't boot up for me.
I have a Asus K52F laptop running Windows 7 64 bit. The laptop did not come with a Windows 7 recovery disk. Can a Windows 7 64 bit recover disk be created? When I use the term "recovery disk", I do not mean "repair disk". I already created a repair disk. But my understanding is that the repair disk can not be used to reinstall Windows 7.
Well I have been trying to fix this error for hours And after the system recovery scan it says there are problems with my start up options but I cant hit those buttons because the s2 keyboard I have in simply wont let me. Secondly I have ran the repair tool but it says I have to manually fix this problem so I tried using the command prompt but to my great luck again I cant get to that option because of my keyboard so I think the real question here is what do I have to do to my keyboard to land over all of the settings?
I turned my computer off so it could update. It turned off correctly. The next morning, I turn on my computer, and windows starts, and then configures it's updates. After this windows restarts my computer. When the computer restarted, Windows couldn't start. I tried multiple times, but got nowhere. System restare didn't work, I got errors when trying to restore. (I have tried 2 different restore points.) Startup repair, after a few tries, finally gave me an error. It said:
Root cause found: Bad hard disk: Bugcheck 7a. Parameters = 0xfffff8a001342c00, 0xffffffffc000009c, 0xdda0b8c0, 0xfffff900c0780000.
Every other test ran without errors. This was somehow caused by windows update, because my comp has worked perfectly until windows installed these updates.
I'm trying to created a posready 7 embedded image, and I want to be able to supply a system repair disc and system image with it, should the disk hardware fail for the end user.
The procedure seemed straightforward, and I'm running it straight after a fresh posready install to test it. I have 2 USB DVD drives attached, one to write the image to, and one because it needs the installation media as part of the creation process. from control panel, backup and restore, click Create a System Repair Disc Choose the dvd writer to use to create the disc and insert a blank disc, I choose E: in my case which has a blank DVD-R "Insert Windows Installation Disc", OK I put the Posready7 install DVD in the other DVD drive F: , click continue... System Repair Disc could not be created, The system could not find the path specified (0x8070003) I have tried inserting instead a Windows 7 Professional DVD at step 3, have tried with a single DVD writer, swapping discs, have tried on a couple of different posready7 installs, one with the 100MB system reserved partition and one without.
I've googled the error code and got lots of results suggesting corrupt user profiles etc, but these are new installs.
I am running Windows 7 RC on my Samsung NC10 netbook. I would like to create a system restore disk to allow me to restire system images, etc. However being a netbook the NC10 doesn't have a CD/DVD drive and while I can use an external one, it would be much easier to have the repair disk on a Flash Pen Drive.
Can anyone help me to create a repair disk on my pen drive?
The hard drive on my laptop recently failed and I purchased and installed a new one to replace it. I cloned as much of the data off of the old drive as possible. However, when I go to boot from it, it gets stuck in a startup repair loop. Startup repair doesn't find any problems, but it is unable to boot windows. I installed windows 7 on a new partition see if I could do a repair install to the other hard drive, but that does not appear to be possible. I've ran chkdsk and it does not find any errors. Is there anything else that I should try to be able to run the older install, or should i just start reinstalling everything.
