Setup Installation :: Error While Installing Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

Jan 20, 2013

I have downloaded Windows 8 Pro 64-bit through the students/partner site and burnt it on a DVD. When I boot from it though I get many types of errors....the most common is 0xc0000098 that says that my PC needs to be repaired and that one or more files are missing or contain errors...I have also tried burning 3 different dvds with different programs to make sure it's not a program's fault but still with no results..

Setup Installation :: Error On Installing Win7 In UEFI

May 8, 2014

I have tried installing Win 7 in UEFI on my old Asus K56JV Laptop.

I have used a tutorial by Brink to create the bootable usb. The system can see it but after it has loaded, I get the following message:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix problem

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart
2. Choose your language setting and click next
3. click "repair your computer"

status 0xc0000225

What should I do from here?

I have tried to make the usb both manually and with rufus usb software. The system does not currently run on UEFI, but it supports it, and I have changed it in BIOS. Also I run Ubuntu in dual boot. I don't know if the GRUB interface does anything here, because the recovery will not start either, though I believe it did so last time I formatted the laptop

Setup Installation :: Installing UEFI / Error 0x80004005 With Win8 - Cannot Create Partitions

Sep 15, 2014

I am having problems installing UEFI & a Error 0x80004005 with Windows 8.1 OEM saying it can't create partitions for UEFI then creating 2 partitions for MBR installation instead. This using a 400 TB, hard drive, setup with a GPT system & nothing else & ready for Windows 8.1 to create the partitions.

The first time it happened I used MiniTool Partition Wizard Professional, to delete the partitions created by Windows 8.1 & convert the MBR to GPT, then used Wipe Disk function to erase all data and set all the bits to a 1.

The only thing that I can think is upsetting the installation is that I have left the other drives in the system including 1x3 TB drive, 1x2 TB drive and a second 4 TB drive.

The 2 TB drive has "Win 7 Ultimate" installed using MBR, the 3 TB drive is empty but ready to install Windows 8.1 setup with GPT, and the other 4 TB drive has a UEFI Windows 8.1 installed but broken.

I have also tried to install UEFI Win 8.1 on the 3 TB drive but it failed with the same error code as above.

This UEFI takes a lot to get ones head around dose't it, and me being much older than I once was makes it even harder. I have tried this installation at least 3 to 4 times now and doing these "Wipe Disk Functions" every time has so far lost me 3 whole days just in wasted time.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 - Preview Won't Install?

Jun 28, 2013

Windows 8.1 doesn't seem to like my 40GB IDE HDD, it won't seem to install no matter what. Upon selecting & formatting the partitions the setup just keep throwing 0x80070057 "Windows could not format a partition on disk 0" even if I reformat the HDD as per MS support article.

I rebooted into Windows 7 on my primary HDD and reformatted the 40GB HDD and attempted to install Windows 8.1, this time it gave me "Windows deployment engine could not initialize".

I tried something else, installed Windows 7 flawlessly on the 40GB HDD then proceeded to upgrade to Windows 8.1 via setup.exe. Everything went fine until the first reboot when it got stuck and hangs at exactly 77% with the fish and spinning orb. After around 30mins it reboots then asks me to 'Select Keyboard Layout" then requests which OS to select. From there I only have 'Windows Setup' and 'Windows 7'. Whenever I selecting 'Windows Setup' it ends up in black screen with the mouse cursor followed by a loop where it continuously asks me for Keyboard layout.

My Windows 8.1 x64 iso is not damaged (hashes are correct) nor is the 16GB boot USB disk that I used. What could possibly be wrong here? The HDD is a 11 year old Maxtor D540X-4D 5400RPM but it's fully functional (no errors in Windows 7 and correctly detected in my BIOS).

Fully wiping the HDD using GParted doesn't work either.

Setup Installation :: Can't Upgrade From 8.1 Preview To 8.1

Jan 16, 2014

Yesterday, my Windows 8.1 preview machine decided it was going to restart every 2 hours unless I install the full 8.1. The problem is that the store install doesn't work; when I click "download", I get a message saying "something happened and the install of 8.1 Preview can't be completed." I also lost my installation disc at some point, assuming that would even work. What should I do?

Setup Installation :: Find Official Microsoft License Agreement For Windows 8.1 Preview?

Aug 23, 2013

I'm trying to find the official Microsoft licence agreement for Windows 8.1 Preview - any link?

I want to use Windows 8.1 Preview in a VM on a Windows 7 PC.

Normally for the full version of Windows 8, and I guess Windows 8.1 when the full version arrives, you'd need a separate licence for the VM installation. But does this apply to the preview version as well?

I'm trying to find a definitive link on the Microsoft website...

Setup Installation :: Reinstalling 8.1 Preview In MBR Disk

Sep 29, 2013

When Win 8.1 Preview was first released it installed without issue in a second partition on my Win 7 Pro Lenovo Edge E335 and created a standard dual boot setup. A week ago something or other started causing chaos in Win 7 though 8.1 still ran normally, but as 7 is my day-to-day system I needed to get it working normally again. Three different Acronis images restored OK but then each developed the same problems, so probably a rootkit was behind it all. Unable to overcome these problems I restored to factory condition, reinstalled my software and life returned to normal.

I then set about repartitioning to install Win 8.1 Preview again but hit a first problem when the same DVD and key I had used previously failed as the key was not accepted. Undaunted I tried again with a new key I found on the internet and this key did work. However the install then failed with the message that Win 8.1 can not be installed to an MBR disk, only to a GPT disk. Now this is the same disk that installed to the same MBR HDD previously, only the key being different.

Is the only solution to this to convert the entire disk to GPT and reinstall both 7 and 8.1 again? If so, that's a bit of a problem as my Win 7 was preinstalled to an MBR disk and I'm certainly not buying it again.

The Win 8 Pro/Win 7 Ult on the left relates to a different box.

Setup Installation :: Can't Install 8.1 Preview On Older Computers

Jul 1, 2013

After 3 days of fruitless searching and multiple attempts to install 8.1 I finally found the answer. My hardware does not have the required LAHF/SAHF support nor does it support Prefe6tchW. Why this matters now withe the 8.1 update when it does not matter with 8 is beyond me.

See here: Can't install or upgrade to 8.1 Preview - Microsoft Community

My old, reliable Dell Precision 370 is now at the end of it's long, illustrious life as far as new updates. I'll have to stay with 8.

Setup Installation :: Unable To Register Evaluation Copy (Pro Preview) Of 8.1

Jan 3, 2014

I upgraded my computer's OS from W7 to Windows 8 some months ago. Not long after, I upgraded to the preview of the Windows 8.1 Pro. My Windows-license is legit, bought and valid. However, when I returned from my christmas holiday, I noticed the message in picture #2. Fair enough, I thought and proceeded forth.

Clicking 'Get Windows' got me to the screen pictured at #3. Oddly enough, I am unable to click any of the buttons, including Download, Home, Your apps and Your account. I can access the links further down on the page (which aren't included in this screencap) but for some reason I can't press anything else.

When I've tried to access the Windows 8 Store before this problem arised, even before I installed Windows 8.1, I have literally never been able to access the Windows 8 Store (See picture #1).

How do I go from here? I would like to register the Windows 8.1 ...

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8.1 As Non-UEFI

Nov 18, 2013

Is it possible to install Windows 8.1 as Legacy with MBR? Or only as UEFI with GPT? I'm kind of confused with all this UEFI business, I always used MBR in my Windows installations. Also, Truecrypt does not support UEFI, so if installing Windows 8.1 I should do it as legacy.

Also, how can I control during the install process if I want to set my system installation as UEFI or Legacy?

Setup Installation :: Installing Ubuntu In Windows 8?

Jan 27, 2013

I have just had limited success installing Ubuntu 12.10 onto an external diskon my new Samsung (series 3) Windows 8 laptop.

The secure boot and fast start up have been disabled.

The situation now is that Windows or Ubuntu will not boot up after pressing the power button, when doing this I get a dark screen with the following message:

error: no such device: 6dada016-95df-4ef5-a343-4a77e8afd396
grub rescue >_

I can now only boot up either program by hitting the F10 key directly afterpressing the power button, I then have to select one of the options in the boot options before themachine will boot (both systems boot up as normal when following this option).

if the external drive is not plugged into the USB port I want mylaptop to boot directly into Windows 8. Can this be achieved?. I would like to start Ubuntu through the settings, change PC settings option.

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 On HP G62 Notebook?

Mar 10, 2013

I'm trying to dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 in the same machine.

Before doing something this risky on the host computer I tried to install Windows 8 in a VM using VirtualBox but I got an 0x0000005d error similar to the screenshot below:

which means my CPU doesn't seem to support the NX (Non-eXecute) or XD (eXecute Disabled) bit feature (or at least doesn't have it enabled).

I proceeded to check with CPU-Z and going to the model page on HP's website and both of them seem to imply that the NX feature is available for my CPU.

Here's the CPU-Z screen:

The problem is that even though I have the "Hardware Virtualization" feature enabled in the BIOS, it seems like there's no option available regarding said NX (or XD) bit by default. The BIOS software is InsydeH20 Rev 3.5, version F.32.

Is there a way to be able to install Windows 8 on said computer that doesn't involve having to upgrade the BIOS software?

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 Without UEFI

Aug 20, 2013

I have an Acer Aspire 5745G-644G50MNKS notebook with preinstalled OEM win 7 home premium.

Specs as following:
Core i7 640M Processor (2.87GHz, 4MB L3 Cache)4 GB DDR3 RAM500 GB HDD15.6" 16:9 HD LED DisplayDVD RW1 GB VGA (NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 420M)WIFI / Bluetooth / Card Reader / Web Cam

I'm wishing to update my system into Windows 8 Pro or Enterprises. But unfortunately my model isn't appears in Acer's Windows 8 Eligible Models list or Affected Models List.

I think my system has more than enough performance to run Windows 8. But my bios don't have UEFI support. So, i just wanna know will my computer be able to run Windows 8 without any troubles without that secure boot option.

I"ve run Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant Tool in my system and it says everything is okay except Secure Boot option. also I'v checked individual hardware vendor sites for the latest drivers for windows 8. Most products has the drivers, And the current drivers also compatible with Windows 8 according to the upgrade assistant.

What should i do so? Will the win 8 upgrade useless in my system? or it will be better than the current win 7?

Setup Installation :: Clean Install Of Windows 8.1 When Installing New SSD

Dec 31, 2013

I bought an acer 756-2808 netbook last year with windows 7 from Amazon. This netbook came with a "upgrade to Windows 8. SoI did the upgrade when it was released.

Sadly, I probably only used netbook for a month or two because the LED screen cracked. They are pretty fragile.

Then, I upgraded to 8GB ram. This thing flies!

I downloaded 'produkey' from nirisoft.net, because I can't find the product key anywhere for the life of me.

So, now I have the product key for the current windows 8 installed. Will this upgrade product key work for a clean install? Moving on, I ordered a Samsung 840 Pro 128 GB which should be arriving in a few days.

Finally, I want to do a clean install of Windows 8.1 using a Windows 8 Product key. Is this possible? The original HDD on this netbook has nothing on it, so I don't really have to back anything up either (like I said I barely used it for two months before the screen cracked!)

I did some searches and found this link: [URL] .....

So if the above step is correct.
Do I:
1.) Get the ISO on the USB following the steps mentioned in the link above.
2.) Take out old HDD and install new SSD
3.) Reboot computer with USB
4.) ?
5.) ?
6.) ?
etc.

Are these steps incorrect?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Boot After Installing Ubuntu?

Since I installed Ubuntu onto my computer, I couldn't boot the Windows 8. I tried installation DVD to repair, but it didn't work. I tried these solutions; solution1, solution2, none of them worked either. I tried refreshing, it stopped at 37%.

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 On A New Disk Boot

Aug 14, 2014

Before, my PC was setup like this:

- disk0: windows xp
- disk1: windows 7
Bios boot priority set to disk1.

So no boot loaders, when I (rarely) need xp, I would switch via bios

Now I wanted to try Windows 8, so I've

- download 'Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation' and burnt on a dvd

- bought and connected a new disk (disk2)

- boot from dvd, installed choosing the new disk2

Now, everything works fine, Windows 8 got installed on disk2. But the strange thing is this:

- if, from bios, I choose disk2, it says the disk is not bootable

- choosing disk1, a boot loader shows up, letting me choose between win7 and Windows 8.1

(- choosing disk0, nothing has changed, xp starts like before)

So, I'm confused. I was expecting Windows 8 booting from the new disk2.

- why disk2 doesn't boot?

- would have been better physically disconnecting disk0 and disk1 before installing?

No boot drive found.Manually select to boot from the RevoDrive from the boot menu (F11), and it just restarts the installation again from scratch.

It installs and runs just fine with legacy BIOS (MBR) for the RevoDrive X2.

It also installs and runs just fine with UEFI on an internal SATA2 HDD.

Things I've done:

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 With Ubuntu 12.10 Already In Place

Jan 28, 2013

I'm wanting to upgrade my laptop to Windows 8. I currently have Ubuntu 12.10 installed alongside Windows 7. I've had a lot of trouble getting ubuntu installed and working (AMD graphics ) so I'd like to just leave that as is.

Is it possible to just install windows 8 over W7 in the same partition? How do I go about doing that? Is it as straight forward as just putting the disk in or is the whole secure boot thing going to cause issues? I want to do a clean install rather than using the upgrade assistant to install Windows 8 over W7.

Setup Installation :: German Language After Installing Windows 8

Dec 24, 2013

Laptop with pre-installed Windows 8 on it. The salesman at the MediaMarkt said that these Laptops are already with pre-installed Windows 8 and also assured me that I can choose English as a language when I am running the laptop. But, when I installed it, the system chose German language and I am really having trouble to understand everything now. My Problem is here how to install Windows 8 with English language and another thing is when I installed the program, it has asked me an Microsoft E-Mail address, but by mistake I installed it with my gmx.de E-Mail address, which means that I am unable to use the Apps in the Computer as it has been asking only Microsoft account, I cant deactivate my gmx.de account which I used when I installed the OS Windows 8 to this Computer.
