How To Clean Mount Image After Integrating Updates And Drivers To Keep Size Below 4.7 GB

Dec 21, 2012

How do I clean mounted image after integrating updates and drivers? When I give the final command of commit, the resulting image is 4.8 GB.

I found this command

dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

This command also removes un-needed installed updates. But it is for cleaning the installed OS on C: and not for Mounted image using DISM.

Windows 8 Refuses To Mount ISOP Image Because Image Is Sparse

Oct 31, 2012

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.

Error - Cannot Mount ISO Image From Network Folder?

May 27, 2013

Under Win 8 Pro 64-bit, I discovered the following oddity: When I try to mount an ISO image using the Windows' built-in mounting function, it works when the the ISO is located on a local drive, but NOT if it is on a network drive (linked to my NAS). The latter case yields an error saying that mounting failed without further explanation. (YES, the Iso file type is associated to Windows Explorer and YES, there is a spare drive letter after the local drive letters; actually my local drives are from B: (DVD) to D:, and the network drives are between F: and Z:, so that a mounted ISO receives a virtual drive at E: .

Qny better solution than installing third-party mounting software like DaemonTools?

Integrating Drivers Into Startup Recovery

Jan 14, 2013

Is there any way to integrate additional drivers into the startup recovery for Windows 8? What I mean by this is the screen it goes into if it fails to boot more than once.

Currently I need to manually load the raid driver in order for it to see my Windows 8 install by opening a command prompt and using drvload to load it into memory.

Updates :: Failure Configuring Windows Updates From Clean Install

May 24, 2014

After a BSOD and utter failure to boot (presumably a critical OS file damaged) I ran the recovery tools for a total factory reset.

Connected to the internet and worked for an hour or two, then tried a reboot. Windows update had 104 updates to process. It did them, then "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer"

This should take half an hour. After 90 minutes it has rebooted 5 or 6 times. It keeps reverting to the same "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer" message. Looks like it might want to reboot through each of those 104 updates.

I'm going to repeat the factory reset and the FIRST thing I will do is disable updates. I'm going to see how long I can work without any updates.

Updates :: Checking For Updates Hangs After Disk Clean Up

Mar 22, 2014

When I run Check for Updates it just hangs. It says it is checking for updates and green progress bar is repeatedly running across, but nothing happens.

Before this problem arose I had just run disk clean-up including remove installation files and windows updates. The disk clean-up process removed about 59 GB including a large Windows.old folder.

I upgraded to Windows 8 from XP about 10 days ago. Windows update was working fine until the disk clean-up. I ran Check for Updates frequently after the upgrade to make sure I got all the updates, it worked perfectly well for both update and install.

I have tried Checking for Updates several times since running disk clean-up.

First time I ran it I had this error message: Windows Update error 0x8024a000 (only seen that one time)

I ran the Update Troubleshooter after that and it found/fixed the following:

Potential windows update database error detected 0x80070490 -Fixed
Windows update components must be fixed - fixed

The troubleshooter did not resolve the issue. I have run Check for Updates many times since with no more error messages, but it just hangs. When I run the Update troubleshhooter it fixes the same two issues as above.

Since the disk clean, Windows Update shows:

Most recent check for updates - Never
Updates were installed - Never.

As my Windows Updates were previously all succesfully installed, the history must have been cleared.

No error messages have been seen since that first one which has not repeated.

Image Size On Monitor Has Changed?

Jan 22, 2014

I am using Windows 8.1. Recently, when viewing a graphic on the monitor, I accidentally hit one or more keys on the lower part of the keyboard. The image immediately re-sized to a smaller size. Even when closing and re-opening the program, I am confronted with the reduced-scale image size. This has not affected any other software that I have on the computer, however.

Maintenance :: Making Sure Laptop Is Clean Before Creating System Image

Sep 15, 2014

I couldn't repair/replace my laptop's corrupt files doing an sfc or dism scan and had to do a reset as I couldn't do a refresh. I thought my laptop was clean when I created my last system image, last month, but when it came to using the system image I realised there was corrupt files on there too so I had to do another reset. What checks should I do before creating a system image? so I know that as well as there being no viruses there are no corrupt files either. Check for errors in Event Viewer and do an sfc and dism scan?

Hardware Drivers :: Optimal Size Of SSD For Win 8.1 And Standard Apps?

Aug 25, 2014

I'm thinking of getting a new laptop with an SSD internal drive for OS and an external USB drive for all my user files. Based on my research so far, it looks like 128gb SSD should be large enough for Win 8.1, all Win updates, and my programs. The main programs I use are LibreOffice, Chrome, Firefox, MediaMonkey, Kaspersky, VLC, Skype, Audacity, PhotoScape, iTunes, PDF reader and some misc small utility apps. Just the usual apps for a typical user. I'm not a power user, I don't play PC games and I don't edit video or use any Adobe CS apps.

So do you think 128gb SSD is enough? Or should I play it safe and get larger?

Hardware Drivers :: Printer Driver - No Custom Paper Size Option

Apr 29, 2014

I'm facing a problem about my printer under Windows 8.1. I cannot create custom paper size.

My previous printer is a HP P2035 printer. According to HP, the driver is built into Windows 8.1 and thus does not offer any driver for Windows 8.1. The printer is detected correctly and I'm able to print, except I cannot create a custom paper size.

I raised this issue on the HP forum and a couple of members explained that the printer is pretty old and thus there is no incentive for Microsoft nor HP to develop a driver for Windows 8.1

Then I change to Fuji Xerox DocuPrint p355db. Again this printer is able to print just fine by Windows 8.1 built in driver, except the driver just won't allow me to create a custom paper size!

Hardware Drivers :: Cluster Size For SSD - Manually Create The Partition Using Disk Part?

Mar 31, 2014

1) When I create my partitions using the Windows 8.1 Setup Wizard, what cluster size does it put for my SSD?

2) How to check what cluster size I am currently on?

3) For SSDs, is it best to stick to the default 1024 cluster size or to manually create the partition using Disk Part and set it as 4096?

4) If your answer for 3 is to manually create them, what are the commands in Diskpart that I need to enter to have the 3 partitions ?

Mount Partition As Folder Instead Of Drive?

Aug 11, 2014

I will be tri-booting Linux (elementaryOS and Debian) and Windows 8 on a laptop for college. On Linux, you can use a seperate partition and mount it to the /home folder.

Is it possible to do this on Windows 8? to mount the partition at C:/Users, to where instead of having a folder there, a data partition is accessed through the folder?

Hardware Drivers :: BIOS Update - Image Integrity Check Failed

Jan 22, 2014

This issue has been an ongoing one about close to a year after i purchased my PC. It is an ASUS PC when i go to the support site for updates in the past and now for my model i see BIOS updates.

Lately they have been all CAP Bios's,any time i try to use these type of BIOS's it is not recognized in the BIOS utility in the BIOS screen.

My last BIOS update was a ROM BIOS it worked fine, now all the future BIOS updates on ASUS's site are CAP.

If I try to rename the BIOS to a ROM i get an error "image integrity check failed". Of course i have spoken to ASUS Support in the past and now over the phone also, but no luck.

I do know it can be risky updating a BIOS if anything goes wrong the PC will become unstable or unusable.

Most will say unless there is not something in the BIOS update that will make improvements to the PC.

It has been 4 or so BIOS updates since one i have on this PC so far on ASUS's site.

I believe my motherboard is not compatible with a CAP BIOS, but why ASUS lists them for my PC.

Hardware Drivers :: Updates To 8.1 Blow Printer Driver Away?

May 1, 2014

Last night two updates from MS, KB2919355 & KB2961887 were installed. Today the driver for my Epson R3000 printer was gone. Windows 8/8.1 seems to have a problem with this printer, even though Epson claims it is compatible and provides updated drivers. When I updated from Windows 8 to 8.1, it replaced my Epson drivers is a very basic MS generic driver. I had to manually install the Epson drivers again. That was a pain, and took several attempts. Is there a recommended way to install a driver that works?

Updates :: Windows Update Gives Error When It Tries To Install Drivers

Jun 23, 2014

When I search for updates with windows update it finds the drivers I want but it gives me an error message whenever I try to install them.

I already tried downloading the latest windows update (when I install it, it says the update was succesful and asks me to restart, but when I search again after restarting the update shows up again and lets me install it again).

I also tried deleting and renaming my software distribution folder and using the windows troubleshooting program.

Overall I'm not really too fussed about most of the things it's trying to install apart from the drivers for the wireless reciever for my xbox controller as it won't work without them. When I try to install the driver files through device manager it gives me this error message

my main reason for mentioning the windows update problem is that I assume the problems are linked as the wireless reciever works perfectly on my laptop. Up to about a week ago it also worked perfectly on this computer using the same usb port that it uses now.

As you can see, on the 19th, it suddenly began to say "NULL DRIVER". I checked my system restore and it tells me that I installed a windows update on that day just before it suddenly stopped working. I tried reverting back to this restore point (before the update) and nothing had changed, the device still would not work.

Maintenance :: System Image Recovery Can't Find Image On USB Drive

Mar 7, 2013

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.

Setup Installation :: Artificial Dual Boot - Mount Both SSDs In HP Case And Switch To Either One At Boot?

Feb 18, 2013

Late last Fall I bought a new Desktop, an HP H81414, with Windows 8 installed with the intention of installing Windows 7 on an SSD. I migrated Window 8 to an SSD, removed that from the system, installed new SSD and put Windows 7 on it. Both worked fine. I wound up with 2 SSD's. capable of running on the EFI BIOS machine with Secure Boot turned off. I later bought a new laptop with Windows 8. I found the Win 8 with Classic Shell to be very acceptable.

What I would like to do now ,if possible, is to mount both SSD's in the HP case and switch to either one of them at boot.

Updates :: No Boot After Updates - System Restore Only Option Available?

Aug 19, 2013

I have had to system restore 3 or 4 times in the last week or so as Windows 8 refuses to boot after installing the latest updates discovered from the last couple of weeks (though some are from December 2012)

I have unchecked all the current updates and have decided against installing them as they seem to be preventing Windows from booting.

Pattern - "Restart to install updates"

Restart locks on the start screen - Restart again and locks again (repeat this process 3x)

"Windows is automatically repairing..." - Fails

"Windows must restore settings to a previous time..." - Usually succeeds, sometimes fails.

Then I can get back into Windows.

As soon as I install these updates, I won't get back into Windows until I system restore since before the updates and my build won't remain stable unless I prevent Windows from installing these updates.What could be going on?

They are quite big updates (totalling ~740mb and have all been discovered in the last week or so though some date back to late last year)

Updates :: Windows 8.1 - Error 0XC000021A After Optional Updates

Mar 13, 2014

I was reviewing my windows updates and saw two optional updates that were pending. First one was for MS office and it went through fine. Second one was some update to AMD vision control center. During that update screen flashed couple of times and went for re-start. After that I am unable to get into the system. I tried safe mode/debugging/low resolution mode etc.. But all resulted in the same blue screen with the 0xc000021a error message.

I am able to go only to command prompt. Nothing else (fortunately I am able to backup my photos by connecting external hard drive and using command prompt). I checked the SRT log file but it doesn't say any issue. All passed.

I tried refresh PC but it came back and said "There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes made".

I tried using win ISO image bootable flash drive. It couldn't get through me in (I just tried with PC repair option when I booted with ISO image).

Is there a way I can get over it without re-installing?

I am currently having an issue on my laptop at the moment where it's stuck in an infinite loop of 'reverting changes' after having tried to update and failed at 30%, I have done some reading at ways to boot into safe mode however it would appear windows 8 doesn't give me the chance.

I do not have a copy of my original windows 8 disc and am at a loss!

I have tried spamming F4, F8, F10 buttons and none are allowing me to enter boot mode.
