Setup Installation :: Error Occurred During Restoration Process - 2 System Reserved Drives
Nov 29, 2013
I tried restoring my computer using Easeus backup, but an error occurred during the restoration process. I've managed to fix it by doing diskpart /fixmbr and then using the windows dvd automated repair, however, what I ended up with is this:
So there are now two visible drives on my PC - C and Q (system reserved), and it doesn't see the data drive.
What I want to do is to make the data drive visible, and merge the C and Q drives into one (or make Q invisible), if that is possible. So, how do I do that?
I'm trying to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 (and then 8.1) on a laptop with a 240 GB SSD. When I run setup, it loads, but then says Windows can't be installed because there isn't enough free space on the system reserved partition. My reserved partition is only 32 MB (I believe it was shrunk from 100 MB when I swapped the SSD in).
Is there any way I can resize the reserved partition and install Windows 8, or will I need to totally reformat the drive and repartition? Don't want to reinstall all my software .....
I'm trying to recreate win 8.1 pro system reserved partition on my ssd. Initially I installed windows on my ssd (c: ) and windows created the sysres partition on my unformatted hd (without telling me anything). After some trouble I managed to be able to boot from ssd directly without going through the sysres partition on the hd. Now if possible I'd like to recreate the sysres on the ssd (by disconnecting my hd so that windows has no other options than creating this on the ssd). If a try a system refresh it tells me it would wipe away all my user installed apps.
I want to install Windows 8 Pro onto the second partition of my laptop that already has W7 Pro installed. What are the correct settings for the second partition(simple, active, primary,etc) so that the existing System Reserved partition used by W7 won't get clobbered? Is this even possible?
I have a custom PC I built and I was running 8.1 on it. I have to drives a 120gb ssd that had windows on it and I have a 1 TB that had the 350mb system reserved partition and 2 other partitions I had for data and a boatload of free space. I wanted to try and install Linux Ubuntu on the 1tb hard drive. I did a custom install on it because I didn't want it to delete my existing partitions so in the install I made 2 partitions for Ubuntu, after I installed it my 2 data partitions are gone and I don't know what happened with the 350mb system reserved partition.
On that disk now is the 2 Linux partitions and a 150mb partition that I can't tell what it is. But now I can't boot into windows, even when I go from bios. My question is in that system reserved partition is that where the bootmgr is? Because I did nothing with the ssd where windows is and I get a no operating system error when I try to boot off it. How I can fix that disk if the system reserved partition isn't on it.
I have windows 8, 32 bit & I'm trying to clear my print spooler, which I've done many times. I go to "run," type "cmd" & enter the command: "net stop spooler." When I execute the spooler command I get the above error message. I did a search on google & got a lot of hits but none of them were useful. What is going on & how do I solve this "system 5 error" problem?
I am trying to re install 8.0 using the option to re install all programs to Factory Settings. Downloads 99 programs and when it tries to do the updates it fails and then starts the reverting back to original programs. This seems never to finish.
I had done an Image backup so that I could go back to it in case of a failure.
I did not do the option to wipe the disk and then install to factory.
I also could not get my machine to use the Recovery DVD's. But did use the screens that ask you questions about recovery.
I did the recovery twice and it failed both times and never did get back to the first install.
Since there seems to be no reason for the failure in the 99 updates I am at a loss of whether I should try again and wipe the disk clean for C:/
I reinstalled windows 8.1 on my Samsung NP530U3C-A10EE. And now the problem this that I can't boot it without usb stick that contains windows installation files. I can boot up windows and remove the usb stick evertything is working perfectly, but if I try to boot up win without usb, it gives error "Operating system not found. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart". VOLUME C: is one where windows are installed (SSD), System Reserved is the system partition that windows create automaticaly (SSD), volumes D: and F: are my hdd volumes D: is empty & F: is stored with my personal files (photos, music etc.)
I have a small computer that is simply used for email, I want to upgrade the system from Vista to Win 8 Pro, I ran the initial upgrade assistant, and it claimed it would work on my system... I bought the upgrade, started the installation (choosing to keep all windows settings and files) and during the actual installation process, it freezes at 11%.
I know that others have asked questions like this, but I don,t have time to do a clean install, can this installation be completed without having to move all of my data from this machine?
After upgrading to 8.1 i see two recovery partitions: Difference between each, or how to find out if i need both.
Secondly,i have a recovery USB flash drive which has boot efi and sources, but the latter is empty. Should i redo that to copy one of the two recovery partitions? (it's 3.7 GB).
Note: i also have 4 DVDs of media recovery, and a single system image on an external hard drive. Not sure how these are related to use of the USB drive,Where is the best description of a recovery process to follow in case of losing a C:drive?
So, I am trying to upgrade from windows 7 to 8 and everytime i begin the download it starts to go and makes it past the preparing which i see a lot of people having problems with. then it gets to the installation part and freezes at 11%. i left it to install last night as i went to bed woke up the next morning and it was still at 11% so, i decided to restart it maybe something was wrong, still nothing. Then i said to myself maybe if i start the disc from the startup screen it will work. Nope. When i did that it told me the installation process had already been started and i needed to remove the disc start up my computer normally and continue from there the way i was before.
My task scheduler wont let me create basic tasks. I enter in all the info and the time and date I want the task to be displayed but when I go to click finish it says the following error has occurred 2147750704.
Im running Windows 8. Ive seriously had nothing BUT problems with this version. Not impressed.
I bought a Win 8 Pro 64 bit upgrade dvd in order to upgrade from Win 7-64bit. After completion I downloaded win 8.1 pro upgrade from the store. At the end of the installation it says "getting devices ready". It starts the process showing the rate and it gets stuck at 6%. Turned off the laptop (by disconnecting power and battery) and got the following message:
".......... Could not complete the update to Win 8.1 ......... error 0x1900101-0x30018 "
I tried to install this upgrade a third time to no avail. I checked that I got all the win 8 updates. I did a system restore. I updated the nvidia driver. I checked the requirements, including CMPXCHGb support in my 64bit version, by using Coreinfo.exe.
I recently installed Windows 8.1 and it turned out that I could'nt find suitable drivers for the graphics card of my laptop which is GMA 4500, part of Mobile Intel Series 4. After a bit of reading, I found out that many others are also on the same ship as me.
Previously I tried the drivers from Intel Download Center and the modified drivers from eightforums but both of them gave me an error which read something like 'an error occurred while registering one or more components'.
Now that I have the right drivers, or at least right for my laptop, I am sharing them with others here. I have successfully tested a software that requires OpenGL2.0 with these drivers and it works great!
You most probably don't need a custom certificate installer! I did'nt need one. These drivers are digitally signed.

I've been trying to install windows 8 , but it says "No drives Found " . I tried to find out some solution from net , and tried the method of using cmd ( diskpart , listdisk ) but only one drive of cdrom is shown using cmd.
How to solve it , other than cmd , as it is showing one drive that is of cd-rom . I'm using hp probook 4540s . . .
I have a toshiba laptop running windows 8. I went to delete photos off a usb when my laptop froze. I turned off the laptop by the power button waited, then when I turned the laptop back on it came up with the message
A disk read error occurred press ctrl alt del to restart
Each time I press ctrl alt del it returns to this message. I can only go to F2 or F12.
I have Win 7 on a 60gb ssd hard drive. I would like to put another 60gb ssd drive in my computer and run win 8 off of this. Is it possible to run this as a dual boot system. Will I get the option to boot into either when I boot up.
Currently I have a machine with Windows 8 pre-installed already. But now I don't like Windows 8 as much because certain programs I want to use requires Windows 7. Though I would still like to keep Windows 8 because it's licensed. I have an extra hard drive lying around with Windows 7 loaded in it already. Now I would like to dual boot between these two drives. Do I have to turn off Secure Boot and change the boot orders around to boot the Windows 7 hard drive?
I currently have a machine installed with Windows 8 pro 64 bit installed on one Samsung 840 pro SSD. Works great. I recently added a second Crucial m4 SSD and would like to install Linux on it... I am having major issues doing so mainly because of UEFI... and when installing Linux it does not see Windows 8 installed on any drive therefore making it rather difficult to install both OSes.
I was prompted by my OS last week to install 8.1 because it was gonna be "great!" so I did and on reboot, was greeted with a bsod. My computer dude said that it was time for a reinstall, so that's what I did during the course of the day. It's a fresh install, fully updated (8.1). I have three drives attached; two 500 GB disks and a 250GB. The computer is seeing one of the 500GB and the 250GB disks properly, but the other 500GB is only showing one partition it seems. It's labeled system reserve and is 350MB in size.
My virtual machines are housed on the other partition and I could really use them. How do I get the Windows install to allow me access to the whole drive?
Windows8, 64x, i3, 4gb samsung 300e can not generate its health report. I did sfc scan(found some corrupted file but says it could not repaired some of them), hard disk and memory test(fine), disk cleanup done and I have tried exclusive microsoft services system start up (msconfig settings) but still failed to generate report.
I migrated my hard drive using Paragon which was running Windows 8 a few days ago from my 500GB to my 3TB hard drive. It worked fine for a while however it's now been acting up recently. I noticed that the system reserved partition on my new hard disc (G: ) is only "Active, Primary Partition" and I still have a system reserved partition on my old hard disc (E: ) which is "System, Active, Primary Partition" so I'm guessing it's still somehow tied to my OS (even though I formatted my old hard disc as I want to set up a dual-boot system with Linux Mint), and the fact that whenever I start up my computer it says it's repairing E:.
What to do to make it so the system reserved G: partition is the "System, Active, Primary Partition" and how I can merge/format the E: and F: partitions on my old hard drive after?
I know the little mistake I made with the 3TB drive only being recognised as 2TB.
I have installed dual windows 8 and windows 7 . i did this many times but this time when i open my computer to explore disks then i saw system reserved disk too there? this was never happened to me . so at what condition this happens and is it the fault of the pc .? should i re install windows to avoid this? does it harm my pc if it remains there ?
So that is a screen shot of my disk management screen. As you can see, disk0 and disk1 both have system reserved partitions on them.
Disk0 is a SSD that I only want Windows, Office, and possibly my video and photo editing software on it. Disk1 is a 2TB SATA HD that is split into 2 partitions used for programs on 1 and media on the other Disk2 is a 2TB SATA HD that is used just for Media storage, and I'm thinking about adding a partition for backups
What the 25MB partition is on Disk2. I also don't know why I cannot access the system reserved partition on Disk0, and why there is another system reserved partition on Disk1 that I can explore, and contains the boot folders.
How did this happen in the first place? Is there anyway for me to fix this issue without wiping everything? I have done some searching and found quick fixes but haven't found an explanation as to how this happened in the first place.
I also would like to create repair DVDs and a full system image of my C drive, but have not done either of these before.
I was recently messing around with installing Windows 8 on an external USB 3.0 HDD (NOT a flash drive) (How To Install Windows 7 On USB Flash Drive or External Hard Drive), and found website that showed a method for doing so by way of a "NT6 Fast Installer". I tried many times to get it to work and just when I was about to give up it finally succeeded. I rebooted into the external drive (unplugged my internal HDD) and it finished installing successfully. After booting/logging in for the first time I noticed that performance was near-native to what it would be if you ran it from an internal HDD. Games even ran well. But I noticed that there was only 1 partition and no System Reserved, and it appeared that the boot files were located on the C drive.
So my question is, on a regular 8 installation to an internal HDD, how can you delete System Reserved and move the boot files to the C drive? Is there any advantage in doing so (or disadvantages)? I just figured that with a C drive and a System Reserved that makes 2 primary partitions out of an available 4 being taken up, by having everthing on C you would only have 1 primary partition and 8 would still work. The steps listed at the above website are meant for 7 and Vista, but I tested them to the tee and they worked without modification on 8. I just had to flag the partition as active/bootable before booting into it for the first time, or else it would throw an error. I know alot of people think that it cant be done or is hard to do, but it can. But that's not what I'm trying to prove. It essentially amounts to being almost the same thing, if not exactly the same, as Windows To Go, except that you're installing via an unofficial method since the official installer wont allow installation to a USB HDD.
I have 16GB of unallocated space in front of System Reserved. I was wondering if there is a way to move the System Reserved to the front. I've used GParted before and I'm guessing I am going to have to make a backup of the C drive and then move it around. (and I know, only 10MB free on C drive. )
