Setup Installation :: Windows 8 - Unable To Open The Required File?

Aug 27, 2012

I just downloaded windows 8 prof from my msdn, and I made a bootable usb stick with WintoFlash and now when I am trying to install I get this message: Windows cannot open the required file D:/Sources/install.wim. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, Error code: 0x80070570. I have looked into the usb stick but install.wim is just there. And I did a disk chek in wintoflash and it found this:

Found problems with source files.

Can't find file D:sourcesoot.wim

Can't find file D:sourcesidwbinfo.txt

Can't find file D:ootmgr

Setup Installation :: Reinstalling Windows 8 From USB - Unable To Reset PC / Required Partition Missing

Apr 13, 2014

I recently purchased an Asus X551 laptop with Windows 8 but straight the way uninstalled Windows 8 and installed Ubuntu (after creating a Windows 8 recovery drive just in case). I have since decided that I want Windows 8 back as I have found that I cannot use a lot of software on Linux. The laptop did not come with any form of recovery disk or installation disk, the only reminent of Windows 8 I have is the recovery USB that I created from within the OS.

When I plug in the USB and boot from it it brings up the recovery menu with options to reset the PC but when I click it it says something like - "Unable to reset PC. A required partition is missing".

Setup Installation :: Unable To Reset PC - Required Partition Is Missing

Jul 19, 2014

I was using Ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop before. Now I want to install Windows 8. I have laptop's rescue CD. I get the following error when I tried to install Windows 8 on UEFI using the rescue CD:

"Unable to reset your pc a required partition is missing".

I think I have a problem about partitions type because Ubuntu uses ext4.

Setup Installation :: Unable To Copy Windows 8 ISO File On USB

Apr 17, 2014

Currently running WinXP, meets all requirement for Windows 8. However, when I try to copy the ISO file to USB using Win7 DVD download tool to create a bootable USB device, the USB I'm trying to copy it to will not show up in the list of "Devices to Copy In".

I have tried this several times with 2 different USB drives, both 8GB, one with more than 4GB free and the another is completely empty. They both work perfectly well, but when I reach the screen with the list of devices to copy the ISO file on to (Step 3 of 4, Win7 USB/DVD Download Tool) they don't show up on the list despite re-inserting them and refreshing a couple hundred times. The only removable device that does show up is the Floppy Disk.

I am using the DVD is not an option, since my DVD player crashed last week and I don't have the time to get it fixed right now, and I'd really like to get Windows 8 installed as soon as possible.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Cannot Install Required Files Error 0x8007025d

Dec 27, 2012

I bought a new SSD and want to do a clean install on it, however am having problems during the install process and receive the following message:

Windows 8 cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x8007025d
The install images was downloaded from the Microsoft website and I have tried using a USB thumb drive and DVD install disc and both receive the same error. I have used the DVD disc when I originally installed Windows 8 Pro on the same desktop but on an IDE harddrive and believe the disc should still work (i.e. no scratches on it).

Here's how I prepared to install:

1. Unplugged all harddrives except for brand new SSD (Crucial M4 128 GB SSD)
2. Changed bios settings to AHCI (before was on IDE) (using Asus P5k-V motherboard)

I'm not sure what's going on if the harddrive is corrupt, the bios settings need to be tweaked, the drive is incompatible with my motherboard or something else.

I don't want to go back to using the IDE drive to boot windows but rather use the new SSD.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 - Registry Edit Required To Get Some Software To Work

May 12, 2014

One of our software providers has instructed us to make some changes to our Win 8 PC's registry to get the software to work properly. They have sent me details of what changes are required:

Open Windows Registry Editor (Regedit)
For each entry:
TYPE: Select Allow Applies to: Select This key and subkeys
Click/Check: Full control and Read
Click OK on Entry detail screen
Click OK on Entries list screen

I know very little about Windows Registry other than not to touch it. These changes seem quite extreme.

Setup Installation :: ASUS VivoBook X200CA / Windows 8.1 Reset - Required Partition Is Missing

Jun 1, 2014

I have an ASUS VivoBook X200CA that is running a Windows 8.1 Upgrade. For about 5 months, this laptop has been running perfectly without any problems and I have managed to reset the computer many times due to certain errors and problems that have arisen from software and hardware compatibility.

Recently, I went to reset my laptop, it restarted and then it took me to the WinRE screen. I went into Troubleshooting > Advanced Options and I clicked on the Reset option. It then took me through each of the various warnings and making sure that my data was backed up and then, once I had clicked on the "Reset" button, it hung for a bit and then said "Reset has failed - Required Partition is Missing".

Setup Installation :: Required CD / DVD Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Sep 15, 2011

I am trying to install the new develp build of Windows 8 (x86) on my asus eeepc 1005pe. This is a netbook which doesnt even have a cd/dvd drive.

So anyway, I extracted the iso on a bootable usb flash drive. I boot, and when I click install it just hangs for about 10 minutes and then it gives me this error:

I tried setting the bios from AHCI to IDE. This does not work, I even get a bluescreen of death when I boot up in the current win7 sp1 install. But anyway on google I read a lot about this problem and one of the solutions is to put it on AHCI.. but not for me as it was already on AHCI. Anyway IDE is not workin either.

Just recently I installed win7sp1 on this netbook without a problem. I checked the sha1 hashes of the Windows 8 ISO and they are confirmed, so that is not the problem either.

Windows 8 Won't Load - Unable To Reset / Required Drive Partition Is Missing

Apr 8, 2014

My Toshiba Satellite Laptop has Windows 8. For some reason windows 8 wont load. It gets to the screen where you select which username you want. But from there its non responsive, I cant get into Windows, I cant restart to load it up in safe mode.

I got a Windows 8 disk which I had to change the bios to load it up. The cd loads but it says the automatic repair wont repair the laptop. I try to refresh windows 8 but I get a message saying the drive where windows is installed is locked. unlock the drive and try again. It also wont let me use system restore.

I try to use the reset pc option but I get a message saying unable to reset your pc, a required drive partition is missing.
At the start it gives me the option to install windows 8, I don't know whether to just do that? Is it ok to do with windows 8 already installed?

BCD Error Boot File Missing Required Information

Mar 12, 2014

I've got a windows 8 laptop which gives me this error message when i try to switch it on:

"Your PC needs to be repaired The boot configuration data file is missing some required information.

File:BCD Error Code : 0xc000000d ............................" I'm sure you are all familiar with the rest of this dreaded error code.

I've tried all the repair options, recovery disks to a windows 8 bootable flash disk, the command prompt fix boot commands as well but still I get the same error message whenever i try to boot windows.

Now I'd like to know, can't i just copy the boot folders from another similar windows 8 pc and paste them into my harddrive to fix this?

Setup Installation :: Unable To Use Windows 8 OEM Key With 8.1 Trial

Apr 24, 2014

Upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows store. Can't use refresh or reset anymore.

Installed Windows 8.1 trial. Can't use Windows 8 OEM key to activate it.

Attempted to install windows 8 from Microsoft site, so I could use my Windows 8 OEM key, however, won't accept key on site because it says it is not a retail key.

How can I get Windows 8 back on my computer, activated with my OEM key?

If I do that then I guess I can upgrade it again from the Windows store to Windows 8.1.

I have Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate installed and activated. I am trying to upgrade to Windows 8 and the upgrade assistant tells me it needs at least 2gb when I have 8gb and Windows 7 sees and knows I have 8gb

I am thinking it could be my bios, but it's already at the latest version

Here are some photos from my bios, so you can tell me if there is anything I need to enable.

These are photos from my bios. I need to change to get this to work.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 To 8.1 - Unable To Reboot?

Jan 24, 2014

bought Win 8 for a Win 7 Dell laptop in Jan. 2013 and have happily used Win 8 for a year. I have a Win 8 backup disc and valid license key.

I decided to update Win 8 to the free Win 8.1 a few days ago and went ahead with the download and installation of Win 8.1. However, after a seemingly successful installation, set up and login, a simple reboot resulted in no longer being able to boot. I can boot to safe mode but cannot boot properly no matter what I do.

There is no specific error message when I reboot, the OS simply fails to reach the login stage and reboots again. It then opens the 'Failed startup' page asking if I wish to use advanced options or restart.I tried turning off all non-Microsoft software like AVG, Comodo, Samsung Keys, etc., but it didn't solve the issue.

I also noticed that Safe Mode boot fails when I attempt to boot to 'Safe Mode with Networking' but is successful when booting to simple 'Safe Mode' or 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt'. I have attempted to burn the Win 8.1 disc as described on this site but from a Win XP system which according to the download software is not possible and unfortunately I do not have access to another system.

Setup Installation :: Unable To Install Windows 8 On New SSD

Jul 31, 2014

I own a Lenovo Y580 Ideapad that came with Windows 8 preinstalled, so I was never given a license key or CD, and I am trying to use the SSD as my main drive by doing a clean install of Windows 8 there and then copying over any other files I want from my HDD.

I downloaded a Windows 8 iso file and verified the hash so I know it was a clean file. I burned that iso to a flash drive using Rufus, following all of the instructions in this post: UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

When I attempted to boot from the flash drive my computer would hang at the Lenovo start up screen (black screen with Lenovo written on it) and then start flashing on/off every 5 seconds for a minute or two and then hang at the start up screen once more indefinitely. It would not let me F2 to BIOS when I turned it on or F12 to Boot device selection.

So, I formatted the flash drive and then followed this post: Create Bootable USB or DVD with Windows 8 ISO Once again, no dice. Same problem. I tried putting my HDD as the very last boot option, enabling Legacy boot mode, etc etc but still haven't been successful. The iso I used was an x64 Windows 8 (core I believe? Just regular). I am currently downloading the 8.1 iso to see if that will work.

Setup Installation :: Unable To Update To Windows 8.1

Jul 10, 2014

I am having a hard time upgrading from windows 8 to 8.1, I have tried installing through the store, installing using the files downloaded by the store (copied them before they were deleted) and they all give me an error. The errors are as follows:

installer using key: This key does not work with this version of windows 8 (using Professional 64-bit, tried 8 and 8.1 key but neither work).

Installer using ei.cfg file: Setup failed to authenticate the product key (or similar, it is set to professional so this should not be an issue).

Store: just says setup failed.

The first time I tried updating, the installer froze and did not complete so I had to re-start, could this have something to do with the issue I am experiencing? My specs are as follows:

Windows 8 Professional 64-bit
Nvidia Geforce GT545 with 3GB VRAM
Realtek AC97 onboard audio
Intel core I7 3.2ghz quad-core multi-thread processor

Setup Installation :: Computer Is Unable To Boot Into Windows 8

Sep 15, 2014

Recently I was trying to upgrade my Windows 8 Pro computer to Windows 8.1 Pro. But I had no working USB sticks so I thought I could make a NTFS partition into my hard drive and extract the Windows 8.1 Pro installation setup files on there. So when I restarted my computer, it booted up into the Windows 8.1 Pro installing setup but said that I needed to boot up into Windows and put the installation media back in. But I could not and just kept booting into the installation.

So I thought that if I delete the partition I could go back to Windows. So I did with DISK PART. Now when I restarted it, it now gives me "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". I'm guessing that when I deleted that partition, there is unallocated space left and my computer is trying to read off that but not the Windows partition.

I have a Compaq computer ...

Setup Installation :: Unable To Install Windows 8.1 On Preinstalled 8 Laptop

Aug 19, 2014

Its a HP Envy laptop with a 1TB HDD running on windows 8. But the laptop has been having a lot of start-up errors and finally some files corrupted and windows wouldn't function properly. So I decided to reformat it to 8.1, a complete wipe to get rid of all the pre-installed HP crap.

So here's what I've tried, in the same order.

> I tried to install windows 8.1 through windows 8. -It failed after it restarted-
> I tried to install windows 8.1 through USB ontop of the Windows Partition (There were 5 partitions). -It failed because of a GPT (If I remember correctly) Partition error-
> I decided to delete all the partition and install Windows 8.1 ontop the entire 1TB disk space. -It started installing but then failed with an error code 0x80070057-
> I tried diskpart through CMD to clean the disk drive then followed with a format to ntfs -It always just sticks on 0 percent%-
> I tried all the same steps with Windows 7 -The exact same errors happen-

I've got one last option, plug the HDD into my desktop and try to format it that way but this is a lot of work so I'd like to keep it as a last resort.

Setup Installation :: Can't Update To Windows 8.1 - Unable To Connect To Store

Oct 23, 2013

I have a fairly new PC running Windows 8 and I can't seem to upgrade to Windows 8.1--There are a bunch of issues-

1. Can't connect to the Windows Store--tried everything here save the refresh, which I do NOT want to do.
2. Downloaded the 8.1 ISO and burned it to a disc--get the error message that 8.1 could not be installed--0x101-0x20017 error--tried installing with a clean boot, turned off antivirus suite, etc
3.sfc /scannow does not work.

So currently I'd like to forget about the store for the moment and continue updating from the downloaded ISO. I really do not wish to restore the computer and I have a lot of software I'd need to reinstall and this would take a long time.

Setup Installation :: Fresh 8.1 Install But Unable To Activate Windows

May 20, 2014

I bought a new laptop with Windows 8 pre-installed (and immediately updated it to 8.1).

I decided after a week to buy an SSD and installed Windows 8.

I now find there is no product key to be found, and can't seem to activate Windows.

1. I've tried a few things. I tried to enable UEFI in PC Settings, but the setting isn't there (does this mean my laptop doesn't support UEFI?)
2. I entered my BIOS. CWM was enabled, and pwe enable. But SECURE BOOT disabled. So I enabled SECURE BOOT, but regardless of what options I select, the laptop keeps booting into the [Legacy] BIOS, possible because there are no BOOT OPTION PRIORITIES found any longer?

My problem is activating windows, and if UEFI is an option, enabling it.

I tried running the installer on an OCZ solid 3 which is what is running Windows 7 and the installer also crashes. Is there a way I can get the error before it reboots the installer?

Setup Installation :: Programs Arbitrarily Open In Different Monitors

Jul 30, 2014

My setup is :-

Windows 8.1, 64 bit;
Asus RAIDR Express PCIe SSD;
Asus GT630-SL-2GD3-L GPU;
Asus SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 Motherboard, BIOS version 0602, (the first version).

I have two monitors, a Dell u2412m which is plugged into the DVI socket on the GPU, and an iiyama XB2776QS which is connected to the DisplayPort socket on the motherboard. This was the only way I could find to get each monitor to use the maximum resolution it is capable of.

Whenever I open a program I have no idea on which monitor it will be displayed, sometimes a program will display in the iiyama, but the next time I open it I can see it on the Dell. I also find that if I switch the monitors off for a few hours, the next time I switch them on the programme might be displaying in a different monitor.

I am not sure if this is because I am not using the new, horrible, Metro style which Microsoft thought to introduce, or something else. I did try a piece of software called MurGeeMon, but this did not solve the problem.

Could it be because one of my monitors is connected to the GPU and the other to the MoBo?

Setup Installation :: Unable To Find Windows Boot Manager In UEFI BIOS?

Yesterday, after many, many problems with my computer, I finally decided to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro onto my ASUS X200CA netbook. However, after backing up and reinstalling the OS, I found that when I tried to disable "Launch CSM" in my BIOS, all of my boot options would disappear and my laptop would continually boot into my BIOS. When I re-enabled "Launch CSM", the boot options would reappear - however, it had not included the "Option #1 - Windows Boot Manager" that I had seen in my other installation.

Setup Installation :: Unable To Install Windows With Gainward Display Adapter GT430?

Jan 29, 2013

I tried a clean install on my system which has a Gainward GT430 (nVidia GT430) 1GB display adapter. What happens is that soon after booting from the DVD the display becomes corrupted (blurred and difficult to read) and I can only barely make on what's on the screen and proceed with the installation.

After the point where I format my drive, windows looks like its installing but after the reboot the display goes to sleep, and I have to start over.

On the same system installing Windows 7 had no issues whatsoever. Installed fine with nearly all the drivers available natively to windows. I was installing Windows 8 64 bit using original media.
