Setup Installation :: Moved Folder From C To D - All Downloads Going Directly Into Drive

Jul 7, 2014

I wanted to move my DOWNLOADS folder from C:UsersGordonDownloads to D:Downloads. So I opened up PROPERTIES in the C:UsersGordonDownloads folder and used the MOVE tab to send it to D:, but I didn't create a DOWNLOADS folder in the D drive, so now all my downloads go directly into D:

How I can now move my downloads to be saved in D:Downloads and not in D:

Setup Installation :: Change Folder Or File Name Of Users On Drive C

Oct 26, 2012

I am installing the Direct Download version of Windows 8. As it begins to setup it goes to a screen named "What needs your attention". It says "The following things need your attention before you can continue to the installation". It goes on to say "Change the folder or file name of C:users on drive C:"

It gives me an option called "Open" which takes me to this C: drive. However, I cannot change the name of C:users. Not even with administrative permission.

Setup Installation :: Install From ISO Directly

Jul 1, 2013

I was able to start the install of 8.1 Preview directly from the downloaded .iso file. Just double clicked on it to open in Windows Explorer then double clicked on setup.exe and off it went. This only works from a booted Windows 8 system (not sure about Windows 7).

Didn't need to create a bootable flash drive or DVD.

SSD And HDD - Pictures Folder Moved?

Apr 20, 2013

In the process of setting up my new computer with an SSD and HDD, I managed to delete the pictures folder. I got it back, but now when I click on the Pictures folder inside the libraries folder, all the data in my HDD comes up. Whatever I did, I somehow made my D: drive to the format of my pictures folder.

How To Delete AVI File In Downloads Folder

Feb 4, 2014

So i'm trying to delete this file i have in my downloads folder, which is a normal .avi file. however, this file is really broken, it wont delete. I suspect this file makes my folder not showing thumbnails and acting slow and sometimes wont show anything at all, just a loading bar thing.

i tried deleting with cmd prompt, while explorer.exe is off, but command prompt stops responding.
i tried searching the folder for viruses, finds nothing.
i tried downloading Unlocker to delete it, but ends up with unlocker stops responding.
i tried quarantine the file, it gets into quarantine in NOD32 but the file is also still in my download folder, and NOD stops responding.

i get no message at all trying to delete it, it's just that nothing at all happens.

What is wrong with this file?! It plays fine though, just like a normal .avi file. Is there anything else i can try? cmd prompt and NOD32 don't get the windows "has stopped working" message, they just stop responding to me clicking any button in NOD32, or writing new text in cmd prompt. i can exit them as normal.

Windows Explorer Keeps Freezing When Right Click In Downloads Folder

Aug 6, 2014

When I right click in the downloads folder or try to open the Recycle Bin Explorer freezes and the blue circle appears unless I force quit the application. It only seems to happen in these two folders.

I downloaded Shell Extensions Manager and disabled all the applications not created by Microsoft and the problem still exists.

The one solution I did find was to create a new user and then the issue was resolved.

I have just bought an AIO Asus desktop with 1 Tb of storage. The c: (Windows)drive is allocated 100gb and the d: drive 931gb. I just want to transfer all the data from my old computer. This was pretty much all in the folder c:>Users>Myname, but when I try to transfer it all into the same folder on the new computer, obviously with 100gb there is not enough space.

Setup Installation :: Resetting PC On New SSD Drive Using Recovery Drive

Jul 16, 2014

I just purchased an Asus R510CC notebook with windows 8 and I bought a SSD drive to replace the current one.

I used Recovery Drive in Windows to create an USB boot drive with the recovery partition on it. I then installed the SSD and booted from the USB. When I get to the option to reset my computer I encounter an error with the following message: "Unable to reset PC. A required drive partition is missing". I already did a bit of research and BIOS tweaking but I can't install Windows onto my SSD.

Setup Installation :: Copy EFI Folder And Bootable Files From Win 8 ISO?

Nov 15, 2013

I read the tutorial on building a Windows EFI USB stick from the Windows ISO. I want to build an EFI/USB from an ISO of a bootable third party application, which is not designed to boot from UEFI. First, I went through the steps in Diskpart. Then, I copied the files from the third party ISO to the USB stick. Screenshot 34 shows the objects listed from the third party ISO. The second screenshot (35) shows what I have on my Win 8.1 ISO. I tried to just copy the efi folder and bootmgr files from the Win 8 ISO, but my Win 8 system (a VM) didn't like that at all. !

Setup Installation :: How To Make A Custom Reset Folder

Nov 12, 2013

I know that by using recimg, you can make a custom refresh image. And I hear that you cannot use it to reset Windows to factory state. is that so? if so, how do I do that?

Also, is it possible to store the recovery image in a hidden partition. hidden in the sense, the drive letter is not automatically assigned when you refresh/reset Windows, nor can you do it from Disk Management. only from diskpart. however, if i can still use reset while keeping the recovery image in a hidden folder in C: drive, that is still fine i guess.

The thing is, the recovery partition of my Dell Latitude 10 tablet is destroyed (it's Dell's fault though) and even though i can easily recover Windows as I have an iso image and can use the USB to reinstall windows like we normally do on our desktops, i want to sell the tablet and i want to make it recoverable via the recovery features in Windows 8. without the ability to recover, the value of the tablet will be pretty low. if all else fails, i will have to buy a cheap USB flash drive, make it a recovery drive and give it with the tablet. sucks!

It is fine if i have to update to Windows 8.1, if it makes it possible in Windows 8.1 even though it was not in Windows 8.

Setup Installation :: HP Laptop With Windows 8 - Missing Send To Folder

Jul 4, 2013

I have a new HP desktop, 8 months old, with Windows 8. Send To has never worked properly. The only items showing are BD-ROM DRIVE (E), or Removable Disc (F) when a flash drive is inserted.

I cannot find the Send To folder using, Run > shell:sendto, or with Search. I have used Refresh with no result. As the Send To has never worked from new, it would appears to be missing from the software, or the software as written is unreliable. A software update would seem to be what is required to resolve the problem.

From the number of inquiries on line and in the forums, it appears to be a major problem. Can we hope for a resolution when 8.1 is released. It did work perfectly with XP, Vista, and Seven after all.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Core Installation Won't Recognize Hard Drive

Sep 15, 2014

I have a HP Envy 4 Ultrabook and I want to install Windows 8 from scratch, I put the installation files on a flash drive from a DVD of Win 8 I had, but when I go to install it, it says the "We couldn't find any drives". I have tried using DiskPart within the CMD as well, but it only finds my flash drive when I run list disk. Also, my drives are completely formatted, and I accidentally wiped the recovery partition. I tried with a USB of Win 8 Pro, and it was fine, showing all of my drives correctly, but that version is linked to another PC, so I can't install it. Also, I booted into a Linux Mint live CD and tried to install it, it sees my hard drive correctly, but the Windows install does not, I can't figure this out, never encountered it before. Is Linux my only option at this point?

Setup Installation :: Cannot Install Windows On USB Flash Drive With Setup

Oct 18, 2013

I am trying to upgrade from windows 8 pro to windows 8.1 on a samsung laptop. The download completes and installation starts.

After a while the following message appears "you cant install windows on a usb flash drive with setup"

I am not actually trying to install to a flash drive. I contacted Microsoft and after 5 hours they said that I should connect to the internet with a cable and not by wireless in order to solve the problem (this didn't work of course and I had told them that it was an install problem and not a download problem).

Setup Installation :: How Much Can Shrink Drive That Contains OS

Jan 20, 2014

Just purchased a new win 8.1 computer. As you know it only has the system, recovery partitions and a very large C drive containing the OS and whatever programs that came with the computer.

After cleaning up any unneeded programs, I would like to create 2 more partitions besides drive C:

Total HDD Capacity is 1TB

Is the free space on drive C: indicted in disk management an accurate reading?

Is 80G enough for OS and programs plus some spare space ?

I base the 80G on my older win7 computer where I allocated 78G and only used 44G after 4 years . I am sure I can get away with only 60G but I prefer some wiggle room .

Setup Installation :: How To Change Default Drive

May 2, 2014

I've already tried the whole regedit thing where I changed ProgramFilesDir and ProgramFilesDir from C: to E:

I've only got a 60GB SSD drive where Windows 8 is installed but I've got a 2TB HHD where I want to install all new programs.

My SSD is now full and I can't download app updates or update to 8.1 due to lack of space.

Would it be easier to move windows onto my HDD? And if so, how do I do that?

Setup Installation :: 8.1 Pro - Can Use Former Boot Drive For Data With New SSD?

Aug 6, 2014

I am planning on building a new computer, and I want to put a 250GB SSD (Samsung 840 EVO) in it to use with 8.1 Pro. However, most of the programs and data I need are still on the old computer's boot drive, specifically all of my STEAM games (none of which I have the DVDs for.)

My question is if I can create symlinks to the old boot drive without losing data on it. This will most likely be a temporary measure, as the drive's a fairly slow 5900RPM Barracuda, and I want something faster, but I can't afford a better one just yet...

Setup Installation :: Booting Windows 8.1 From CD Drive

Sep 15, 2014

Computer specs, GeForce GTX 760 and i5-4670k CPU. MSI Z97-G45 Gaming Series motherboard. bought this from somebody with no windows installed on it. computer came with no cd's. bought a new copy of windows 8.1. i have the computer hooked up to a 720p hdtv with an hdmi cord. everytime i am hitting enter to boot from the device options it just keeps blinking but it wont boot from device. i think since i am using a tv and not a monitor it may be cutting off some other options on the screen on the bottom that i cant see? or is there something wrong with the computer. i believe the person used the computer before me for about 6 months or so and deleted what ever operating system he had on it before giving it to me. read some stuff about possible uefi bios legacy boot but not sure?

Setup Installation :: Drive Clone Attempt Isn't Working

Jun 21, 2014

I'm a heavy OSX user so I don't know a whole lot about this, but my son uses Windows because he likes to play games. I'm trying to upgrade his boot drive from a 1TB HDD to a 512GB SSD.

Last night I used Norton Ghost to try to make this happen, but after it completed, the SSD is not booting. I swapped it back to the regular HDD and it's fine. So, I suspect I did something wrong since I don't know too much about this.

The top photo shows the settings that I chose in Ghost. I can give an explanation to why I picked those if any one needs to know why.

The bottom photo shows the results of the clone. The top drive is the original 1TB source, the bottom one is the SSD. I had expected Ghost to pull the smallest EFI system partition, but it didn't. The SSD does have enough space for the data.

The recovery partitions on the original drive... I do NOT want those on the SSD. I have a flash drive that I will use to make recovery media. I don't want to waste space on the drive for recovery.

The source and destination drives were connected to a second PC and were NOT the boot drives.

Setup Installation :: VHDX - How To Change System C Drive

Jun 16, 2014

I have a VHDX which I sometimes boot from and sometimes use as a VM in Hyper V. It has Windows installed on the default C: drive.

This is somewhat confusing as the C: may be the original C: drive or the VHDX C: drive (with the original C: drive renamed to H: in my case). I want C: to always be the native boot and T: (for example) to always be the boot for the VHDX.

Can I change the VHDX to have Windows installed to say T:? I was thinking of renaming all instances of C: to T: in the registry and updating BCDEDIT. It is not possible to change system disk in disk management.

If this is not possible can I re-install windows on the VHDX and specify a different letter and C:?

This is how it looks when booting from VHDX:

DISKPART> list disk Disk ###
Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 465 GB 1024 KB
Disk 1 Online 931 GB 31 GB *
Disk 2 Online 483 MB 0 B
