I've made a Windows 8 AIO in which I included a WMC unlocked build but it can't be activated because no serials are found. I decided better than that to remove that image and include .net framework 3.5 preinstalled with windows in stead of enabling it from WU or using Dism.
The problem is just that I don't know how to enable the feature in a .wim image.
So I am having many issues with windows 8. First of all, when I sysprep it does not do what I want it to do (like windows 7) so I am not syspreping. Now, when I capture my image using WinPE v.3.0m it skips MANY files and when I apply the wim file to another computer, my image does not work. It tells me that many files are missing and that I need to repair windows. When I try to repair windows, nothing gets repaired and I get stuck there and I can not advanced.
I read about the new version of WinPE 4.0 with NET and PowerShell. I followed the instruction from DeploymentResearch website and still unsuccessful.
I currently have a new laptop with Windows 8 on it and I've installed some of my apps and said that I needed .NET Framework 3.5 in order to run those apps. I clicked the "download" button but for more like 12 times today it always ended up on Error 0x800F0906 - Couldn't connect to Internet. I've got internet connection and as matter of fact its kinda fast. I couldn't update my Metro Apps too says it can't connect to Internet. So basically I've googled .NET Framework 3.5 installer and ended up on Microsoft's official website. Can I download and install this framework straight to my laptop?
I need to install the .Net framework 3.5 sp1 on Windows 8.1 for Autodesk 3ds Max for work. I initially noticed this in the Max installer...just quit installing and says I need to connect to the internet. Of course I am connected just fine.
Tried Windows update, gave me this error: 0x800F0906
Tried enabling .net 3.5 from the features menu, but got the same Windows Update "connect to the internet" error.
I tried using command prompt to do this command: Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:E:sourcessxs /LimitAccess
That did not work, even with the installation media inserted, CMD gave me error 0x800f081f saying it could not locate the files on the Windows 8 installation disc (YES I DID INSERT THE CORRECT DRIVE LETTER)
I even copied the sxs folder directly to my C directory, directed the command to the folder itself and it still gave me the same error. The only thing I can think of to actually make that command work is if I had a Windows 8.1 disc instead of 8.
I've tried downloading multiple "offline" installers for it, but they all do the Windows Update crap that got me into this in the first place.
After installing Windows 8 in most cases you have to install .Net Framework 3.5 to be able to install or run some 3rd party application. Recently while browsing the internet I came across an offline installer; one that worked perfectly and was very easy to use.
Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 Or .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Win8
I've made my integration which pre-enables the .netframework 3.5 into my .wim images, my AIO includes w8, w8 pro, w8 pro WMC and w8 Enterprise for both architectures, now I'm facing the problem that the iso exceeds the weight by 22 MB, so I'm forced to use a dvd9, now that the feature is preinstaled into de the win images I think that I can reduce the space by deleting the .net framework files for 3.5 in the sxs folder but exactly which files do I have to delete?
Everytime I bootup Windows 8.1, I get an error window telling me that one of my appz needs .NET Framework 4.5 in order to work properly. When I try installing it, I get the following message:
1. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is already a part of this operating system. You do not need to install the .NET Framework. 2. Same or higher version of .NET Framework 4.5 has already been installed on this computer.
The problem is that I can't install the .NET Framework 3.5 on my Windows 8.1 because when i try to install it, appears:
"Can't install the following feature: .NET Framework 3.5
Can't find the specified file. Error: 0x80070002"
The same if i download the dotNetFx35setup.exe setup from Microsoft Website. I tried also in other 2 ways suggested here (Installazione di .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 8) :
- In Control Panel -> Programs -> Enable or disable Windows Features -> .NET Framework 3.5 but i receive the same error - I insert Windows 8 DVD in the D: Unit and i type in the prompt command this code:
I have problem mounting .iso images in Windows 8 Pro.
The error message I was getting was this:
and in powershell I got this:
Essentially the problem is that windows .iso mounting does not like 'sparse' files. I had used Acronis backup to backup my original .iso files and this DOES use sparse files. You can check if a file is 'sparsed' by looking at the files details in properties. The 'P' in the attributes represents a sparse file. See the screenshot below.
The result? When I restored my .iso images I could no longer mount them.
The simplest solution I have found is to just copy the .iso to a new file - this seems to create the new file without the sparse flag set.
i got a wired .net framework error on my windows 8 64 bit computer,this happened after i updated a program i have not experienced it since but i wanted to know if i need to do anything to fix the .net framework. here is the error straight from event viewer.
I can't install .NET Framework 3.5 no matter what I do. I tried downloading it and in the midway get the error 0x800f0906. I tried installing through DISM but that didn't work either. It always stops at 65.8 %.
I'm using Windows 8.1, trying to install .NET Framework 3.5 through the "Turn Windows features on or off" menu, and for some reason it won't connect to the update server, but only for this one feature, enabling and disabling everything else works just fine. It spits out error code 0x800F0906. When I go to the support site linked on the error message [URL], it gives me a few things to try. None of them work. When I try the one that apparently fixes the issue for most people, Method 3, the terminal spits out an error about the files not being there [URL]. This error also being covered on the same page as the first, I read through that, made sure everything was good to go, and even tried it with a completely separate Windows 8.1 ISO (what I was originally using was a base Windows 8 ISO), still nothing.
Now, I had this issue a few days ago, and it was stopping me from running a few programs. Having gone through everything I could find on the matter, I decided it was just some sort of file corruption and decided to do a fresh "nuke & pave" reinstall.
Recently I have downloaded a few things that require the .NET framework 3.5. When I go to download/ install this, it moves realy fast, then stops and says: "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes" with the error code '0x800F081F'. I have been trying to do this for weeks now, and keep getting this error.
Some things to note: I downloaded Windows 8 (Pro, 64) My computer had a problem and I had to refresh it.
I've been dual-booting Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, but a while back my Windows 8 kind of went "South" and wouldn't boot at all (I got an error message that a device was "not attached"). I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.
The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.
I have got a new lap, it has pre installed Windows 8,and for recovery of warranty, if something goes wrong, I want to make an ISO image for burn it in dvd. I have read that it will be around 4gb of the dvd...
So when I was using Windows Vista I used Acronis True Image, when windows 7 came along I use macrium reflect, now I am using windows 8.
don't know what to try or use this time. I have three hard drives one for my OS, one for media+installation of programs and lastly one for backups. I want to make a system image in case something goes wrong save me the hassle of reinstalling and downloading again?
have our friends computer all set up and ready to go.One of the things that came about during this process is, I learned that you can make a real disk image in Windows 8 without using a third party software program.
Something I didn't think was possible, and you don't have to jump through hoops to do it.
As "Badrobot", pointed out to me.
There is a utility in the Windows Control Panel named Windows 7 File Recovery, (the strange name is probably why I never figure out what it does) It is really the Disk Image utility from Windows 7 and will make a Disk Image of the C: drive on your Windows 8 computer, and has nothing to do with recovering Windows 7 files, as far as I can see.
Why they didn't include this option in Windows 8 Recovery is a mystery.
Anyway the utility is really easy to use, makes a backup very quickly, and also creates a Windows Boot disk that will take you to the recovery interface if your computer won't boot or go to the Recovery Screen.
I haven't actually checked but it says that the option to restore you computer from a Disk Image will now, be available when you open the System Restore Windows along with the Refresh, and Restore options.
On the laptop I'm setting up, I created a new partition just big enough to hold the image and placed it there. On my computer I placed it on a different physical drive so that it will work even if my hard drive dies.
So I have to admit that I complained about Windows 8 not having this capability in error, but I still say that it's Microsoft's fault for hiding it in a location that I never expected to find it, under a name that makes no sense at all.
As long as I'm complaining again, I want to ask, "Why can't you type in "Disk Manager" in the search on the Metro screen and find "Disk Manager".
Half of the problem with Windows 8 is that they changed the name on things that have been the same for years.
Anyway both computers now have Windows 8 generated Disk Images and I feel better. LOL
I'm recently changing my system. I have a lot of important software installed on my previous system..Is it possible that I create an image (custom recovery image) of the software and Windows like using recimg and then copy the resulting image in the new system and refreshing it to get my installed software back? Commands for recimg?
I bought an Acer notebook with Windows 8 SL (Single Language) and UEFI BIOS (with Secure Boot) factory installed (Windows Key is set in Bios).
I have the habit of installing all programs and make an image of partition C: in case of having to reinstall the entire system for problems with Windows, HDD exchange or similar cases. With this gain too long and not have to reinstall all the programs one by one.
My HDD is partitioned into 4 parts: C:, E:, F: and G:.
When I enter the Windows 8 app to generate the system image appear two partitions pre-marked for backup: C: (Programs) and EFI System Partition (no drive letter). C: partition is formatted as NTFS, but the EFI is as FAT32.
My question is: when I restore this, how should I format the partition where you install the system again (C ? Format all the partition as NTFS and Backup app creates the EFI partition FAT32 by own?
How it works and how to proceed? I will boot the system by CD-ROM.
Its my first time to create my first system image in my windows 8. Can I exclude a certain file if not how many blank cd's do I need I got 146GB used currently in my C drive and while creating a system image could it take the process an hour or more?
I tried to start windows 8.1 this morning and it was stuck in a boot loop. System tried to carryout repairs to no avail.
I re-installed Windows and I have some drives that are setup in a raid configuration which has a system image I created some time ago after I performed a fresh install of windows 8.1. However, I can't seem to get recovery to locate it.
Is there a way of restoring from this backup to save my having to install each programme from scratch? The file is 141 gig and is an ADI file with an XML and disk image text file.
I have 2 hard drives in my computer, my main Windows 8 C:, and a win7/game/data drive, the second of which is failing. reports show it is failing a smart short test, and although it has been running fine for months, i figured i would replace it with my tax return.
My question: If i create a system image of C: and D:, would it be possible to just restore the D: portion of the image, or do I have to restore both, then delete the second C: on the new drive? i do not have the resources or courage to test this on my system now because I am not sure what this reformat, and with my luck, the drive would die during the restore.
I created a custom refresh image the day before upgrading to 8.1. I am having shut down and sleep issues with windows 8.1 that I don't have time to troubleshoot any longer and I wish to go back to win 8 for now. I went to check that my image was there and active and this is what i get:
It showed successful when I created it? I can find in in the location that is it supposed to be:
Now I'm stuck. I don't want to use the factory image and reinstall everything, and I can't cope with the bsods and hangs when trying to sleep or shutdown ( I have tried every option in that massive thread about windows 8.1 not sleeping ) ...
To ask what is probably well known amongst IT pro's; does a system image backup solution (and consequently a restore from that image if needs be) work on OEM PC's, like a desktop from Acer, actually work without problems, and would I get a proper bootable and working machine after restoration.
Brief scenario - I have used Acronis TI 2014 (Or even the Windows 8.1 system image utility) to create an image of my C: Drive/EFI Partition/Recovery Partition - and backed it up to an external USB HDD.
My OS crashes for whatever reason and I can't boot.
I then either use my Acronis bootable media CD (which I've tested and boots despite all the secure boot/UEFI/GPT mania going about users like myself) to reinstall the Acronis disk image.
OR I use a Widnows 8.1 bootable disk with the ISO (which I've tested to boot) to reinstall the Windows created system image. (I could also use the recovery drive I created in Win 8.1, which just to add, however irrelvanat it might be, includes my OEM factory default partition which was copied as part of the recovery flash drive creation)
Would either of those restore solutions give me a reasonably likely working PC again - taking into account all the stuff I don't understand like the Windows 8.1 OEM key being on the motherboard (which I would understand in terms of Windows activation and authentication could have a negative impact on restoring images over an OEM installed OS and it's partitions)....
