Preferred Solution: cant complete windows live installation on win7

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: cant complete windows live installation on win7

hello firstry
I didn't have this error when I installed windows live, but today Messenger doesn't work normally (error 0xc0000005).
The only solution for me is launch the application as an administrator and with Vista compatibility mode.
Try installing windows live with this parameters...

Hey guys,

I have this crucial m4 128gb 6gb/s for over a month. I had it running well, with the firmware up to date til i managed to clean my computer. Looks like the boot manager didn't like that i switch moved two mechanical drive in different port. the boot manager was probably on them so thats why win7 was tripping and freezing.

So i unplugged the two mechanical drive, and did a fresh install of win7. I have a gigabyte x58-ud3r with 9128 marvell chip on on my 6/7 gSATA port. When i get the ssd, i put the ICH10 in AHCI and the gSATA port as well, and the installation completed.

Now, it just dont work. win7 will copy the files, decompress them and then when it reboot it will hangs at the logo screen and do nothing for like 30 min. I tried switching the port 6/7 in IDE, and windows installation just complete. Try to switch it back once win7 is install and it will hang on at the logo screen. The win7 registry key for ahci is set to 0 like it should be, but i can't boot win7 when its set to ahci in the bios.

I tried the fresh installation 3 times. I have load the marvell driver from my mobo cd with the partionning tool in win7 installation, and now it says what the installation can't update the registry after decompressing the files and it cancels the installation.

I've been on this for two days and it gives me serious headache. please guys, where do i start to make this ssd works like it was.

A:WIN7-I can't complete win7 installation in AHCI.

i solved it, thanks guy

Hi,
I have problems entering windows after the first installation of Windows 7 64 bit built 7000.
After seconds the welcome (splash) screen appears, the windows suddenly reboot automaticaly.
After that, black screen appears with dashes blinking.
(Actually, my current OS is Windows 7 32 bit built 7600, but I think it isn't cause of the problems. I have formatted the local drive, in which my current OS was installed, before I install Win 7 64 bit).

I own a Dell Studio 1558 Laptop, my keyboard broke so contacted them and they sent over a tech to replace my keyboard, ram, and mobo. After this i was getting a lot of BSOD while runing the laptop for a good amount of time, then i would have to leave it off for a while and it would boot up again, other wise I would get BSOD.

So I decided to backup my entire HDD and do a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Home Premium. After 6 days of attempting to install windows I still haven't succeeded. Since I recieve the message "Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer"

After reading a lot in the internetz I've already tried:

- Completely wiped out HDD, using Windows software, other computer, and ubuntu.
- I cannot remove my video card since its a laptop.
- My bios is set to AHCI (this is default). And swtiching it as well to ATA.
- Switching the name manually of the partitions.
-Installing it in another partition that inst C drive.
- Installing it with out a partition.
- Connecting a ethernet cable/without conecting ethernet cable.
- Loading intel drivers in the installation screen.

While pressing shift + f10 at the completing installation screen and executing explorer.exe, it crashes while performing Personalized Settings: Windows Desktop Update.

A:Windows 7 Cannot complete installation.

Make sure you have latest BIOS update. If so, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways To Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

Set SATA controller to AHCI first to try install, then IDE mode if this fails.

Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install.

Wipe the HD using Diskpart Clean All command from the booted Win7 DVD: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

After wiping HD, close Command Box and click Install Now, use Custom>Drive Options to create partition(s), format before installing to first OS partition - ignore the 100mb boot partition created by Win which places the Repair console on F8 Boot Tools.

If this fails, go back to Diskpart tutorial and use Step 2.2 to repartition and mark Active.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Hello JohnBrown and welcome to Seven Forums.

Just for clarification, when you say you "tried restarting the system" do you mean you rebooted (restarted) the computer or you actually tried reinstalling Windows 7? From the error message you've provided, it sounds like the installation failed.

- Did you use a Toshiba provided reinstall disk or a Windows 7 installation disk?
- Do you know if your Toshiba has a hidden recovery partition that would restore your computer to factory specs?
- When you "fully recovered" your system do you know if the hard drive was formatted or not?

If you used a Windows 7 disk these tutorials may help:

I went away to work for a few hours and come back and apparently my laptop is broken. My sister uses it as well and I have no idea what she did.. Apparently somebody attempted to restore it? It now comes up with "Setup is starting services" and then a box pops up saying the installation cannot be complete and to restart. This is a continuous loop and I have no idea how to fix it. The laptop will not start in safe mode? If anybody could help, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Windows cannot complete installation.

Hi CYoung2013,

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

My apologies for the delay in responding!

May I ask for what reason you decided to restore Windows to factory settings? What symptoms were you experiencing?

Under normal circumstances you will be requested to restart your computer for Windows to complete the installation. Does this happen every time you restart your computer? If so, you "might" have a bad hard drive and it will need to be taken into a reputable tech shop to be replaced.

Welcome to the Seven Forums!
Could you please add some system specs to your profile? Just lettings us know that you have 7 HP 64 doesn't help us finding an answer that much. Do you get any error message (saying other than just Windows Could not complete installation)?

You're also telling us that you're doing a clean re-install of Windows; I assume Windows has worked properly before? If so, which version? And what's the reason you're attempting a re-install? Hardware issue? Slow performance?

Hi folks. I'm new to the forum so give me a little slack if I screw this up please lol. I have an Acer Aspire X1420G-U5832 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I wanted to resturn my computer to factory condition so I went through the correct steps as it guided me. I cut and pasted my documents to a portable flassh drive so i wouldn't lose photos and important school documents. I proceeded with the steps and the system began restoring. I don't recall if it asked me to restart or if it restarted on it's own but whatever the case, it now gives me a dialog box every time I restart like it asks me too. The system dialog box I'm gtting is " (Install Windows), Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation." All restarts lead to this response and all safe mode restarts lead to one very similar only it mentions the safe mode aspect. ANY, help would be appreciated guy's. If you need additional info please let me know and I will provide. Thank you!

As a Christmas present for a friend, I decided to upgrade her computer, and in the process bought her a new motherboard, Video Card, hard drive, DVD drive, processor, RAM. Out with the old pieces and in with the new, I configured the boot settings and threw in my Windows XP SP1 CD and prepared for installation. Note that I did keep the old SATA hard drive, and planned to use that as a "Slave" drive. (Does SATA actually make a differentiation between Slave and Master? Either way, it's not the to-be-booted-from drive.)

So I boot into the WXP setup, format the new drive as NTFS, and it reboots. It attempts to boot into XP on the new drive...and fails. Screen goes black, it hangs for about 2-3 minutes and finally pops up with the following:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.

Thinking it was just a corrupt file, I grabbed a hal.dll file from my SP2 computer upstairs, booted up with a copy of BartPE, and replaced the supposedly defunct hal.dll in with the working one. No dice.

I cannot boot into safe mode, or any of the other possible options. It will either hang at a black screen before rebooting, or give me the hal.dll error.

I Google common causes of this error, and try the fixes for each. I do a bootcfg /rebuild in the Recovery Console, a fixboot, I attempt a recovery installation, and a full-out reinstall. Nothing has worked. I'm pre... Read more

I tried yesterday to reinstall Windows 7 from a genuine update CD (Home Premium) There was already an installation in place but it would not boot nor repair. There was other stuff on the drive too, but it was no longer relevant so I did not mind it being wiped. The installation was slow enough but eventually reached the last stage - "Completing Installation" - and there it has stayed for, so far, about 18 hours. There is still some action - three dots that appear, one, two, three, and then disappear and start again - but nothing more. Mouse is working but If I click the close box X (in the dialogue box) I see another box with the message that installation cannot be stopped at this stage or the computer may become unusable. The escape key produces the same message. No other key produces any effect and neither keyboard no mouse produces a menu. I have not dared to use the Ctr-Alt-Del combination.

So what on earth do I do? It does not seem to me that this is ever going to end, but if I try to switch off and reboot physically I might find the 500GB hard drive and the system totally inaccessible. The system is i765 @ 2.8Ghz quadcore (?) with 12GB memory

Help and advice would be much appreciated.

I am not sure how to solve this.. I tried re-install XP on the machine, I can get everything back. Shall I run the setup of Windows 7 from Windows XP or how do I install Windows 7 from CD?

I have a HP Pavilion dv5 laptop with windows 7 home premium. The system is 64 bit. The hard drive recently crashed and was not repairable. I purchased a brand new hard drive and used the disks provided by HP to install windows 7. It went through the whole installation process. When it restarts it comes to the welcome screen. A low pitch ding sounds and then the screen goes black with a message saying "windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer restart the installation." If I press CTRL +ALT+Delete, open task manager, and end the audit.exe process, windows will open and I can do everything. If I restart the computer it does the same message. What can the issue be? I also did a Bios scan and the hard drive and ram are good. I'm out of ideas.

A:Windows could not complete the installation

That factory preinstalled Win7 is a corrupt install to begin with, larded with bloatware and useless duplicate utilties that have much better versions built into Win7. HP has the worst load of bloatware in the industry.

What I would do is get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 using the installer provided and following the steps closely to get a perfect install.

If you insist on the factory install then I'd try running it from partition following steps in HP System Recovery or wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command to see if it will complete from disks then. But you need the Win7 installer to boot to the command line anyway, so might as well get the clean install.

Hello.
I had a Windows 7 installation but then installed Windows 8 over it, a few weeks ago.
I felt like my computer was getting too bulky and slow, so I decided to restore it to the factory conditions (system restore) by using my Windows 7 recovery disc. The restore finished and restarted, and went right to the Windows 7 loading screen, where it ended in this error message:

I've got news for you Factory Restore and System Restore are not one and the same.

To correctly advise you please fill out your system specs to best of your abilities. Very important is to know the manufacturer of your computer, the precise model of the computer, and whether the computer is a laptop or a desktop.

I realize you will not be able to follow this write-up to the letter, but the write-up will serve as a guideline.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec (left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the ?Other Info? block for Optical Reader,

I took delivery of a new T400 today. Imagine my surprise upon turning it on to see the Windows F8 recovery menu, and a message about the system not having been shut down cleanly. Strange thing on a machine straight from the facory !Well anyway I let it boot into the normal mode. Next the OS booted and something obviously ran to install updates. I suspect that one of these failed. Eventually I was presented with a dialog that says "Windows could not complete the installation" and "To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation". Sadly this same dialog displays regardless of how many times I reboot. Reading the scanty doc that came with the machine, it appears to have a recovery partition and a way to invoke a factory restore from the partition. Unfortunately entering recovery mode does not work (I press F11 and it goes ahead and boots into Vista anyway).Next I tried calling Lenovo. They politely said that they are not working at this hour and I should call back in the morning. Well I am planning to take this new laptop on a business trip in the morning and won't have time to call before I have to be at the airport.So back to self-diagnosis...I found that when in the 'All your install are belong to us' mode, I could press ctl-alt-del and get task manager up.

Vista's installer can not cope with this re-started installation.So presumably my best option is to re-image the machine, which of course Lenovo does not document properly (or really at all).

A friend of mine has a problem with his Windows Live Mail client. He's running Win 7 HP 64 bit with the Windows Live Mail client and a Hotmail ID. His problem is that he sometimes sees emails mysteriously multiplying emails in his folders - this includes his deleted mail folder!

We have tried asking questions in the official Microsoft Mail forums but have received no response. What I would like to do is to delete his Mail.MSMessageStore database in both the Windows Live Mail folder and the Backup folder. I believe doing this will cause Windows Live Mail to recreate the Mail.MSMessageStore database. However I would like to be sure, before I do this, that he will continue to have access to all his (offline) Storage Folders, as well as his normal mail folders, after doing this. Does anyone know whether deleting the MSMessageStore database will cause any data loss or is it a totally harmless step?

A:Can I recreate the complete set of Windows Live Mail Folders?

Hi,

As per my experience with WLM, if you are trying to delete MSMessageStore database then you will lost your email data from Windows Live Mail client application. I think you should try to delete the duplicate email messages by the help of following tips: http://www.ehow.com/how_7196301_eliminate-duplicate-emails-inbox.html

Got a mates computer that would not boot normally, so button mashed f8 to bring up safe mode, uninstalled the crap, ran an antivirus and checked for registry errors with an outdated reg cleaner, there were heaps of errors which I could do nothing about as I had no internet at the time, so I decided to do a complete reset of the PC through the f8 boot menu. It went fine until I woke up the next morning to find that when it boots all I get is the error message at the toshiba boot screen saying "Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation"there is no mouse pointer so I smash enter, it restarts and does exactly the same thing on next startup. Pleeeeaaaaassssse help me fix what I've done! I can't seem to get f8 to work after the reset and I'm stuck!

This is a brand new build, I am getting the following message after several attempts "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannnot proceed". If I restart windows I get the same message, I also get the same message when I restart in safe mode. I have tried several clean installs and always come back to the same issue.

Asus H87M-PRO Motherboard
Intel i5 Haswell
EVGA GTX 650 TI Boost
2- 4 gb Vengence memory

First attempt with graphics card installed resulted in black screen after first restart. Removed graphics card to go with integrated graphics. I am seeing numerous posts of similiar instances, but no real defined solution.

A:Unable to complete installation of Windows 7 64 bit

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. (If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install.) Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Hello,
My sister has a miniHP 110, which was experiencing virus troubles, so I offered to do a factory restore. I have used that option several times on my regular HP laptop with no issues, but on her's, it's giving me the error message 'Windows cannot complete the installation in safe mode. to continue installing windows, restart the computer.' It goes on in a loop. I've tried booting it in safe mode, but to no avail. I've been playing around with it for a couple of days, and got to the screen where you choose accounts from. It said the account had been disabled, and to check with my administrator. I would go through the trouble of getting a windows 7 disk, but with this version of HPmini, there is no disk drive. I'm at a complete loss, is there anything I can do?

Thank you for your time!

After my computer almost slowed to a standstill. I decided to re-install windows xp sp2. Installation went fine, re- formated the hard drive and copied all the files to the hard drive. At this point, my computer refuses to re-boot to complete the installation, all I get is a blank screen and the message unable to reboot. I have tried the installation several times. Please Help somebody!

did the windows cd come with this computer or another. Or was it a full retail version of xp.

You may want to go to the harddrives manufacturers webside and download their harddrive diagnostic utility to see if your drive is going bad.

HI TSG'S, please help! I'm getting many assorted problems with windows xp - I wont list them all. I recently wiped my hard drive and since installation lots of things dont work. I ran sfc \scannow to find missing bits, and it ran and closed, but heaps of stuff doesn't work and I'm getting messages of missing root certificates. So...... i tried to run install again off the cd (upgrade) and it stops before it begins with a error message saying a previous installation didn't complete, quit out of this setup, log off, log on again, a program will start automatically (it didn't) then run setup again. I'm getting nowhere! Will I have to wipe the HD all over again - the kids will kill me if I lose all their stuff again!
Thanks,
Julie.
BTW, can't even post on TSG's on that computer either!

Just got a new HP laptop for Christmas (yeah. It's not even 7 on Christmas morning and I'm already having problems.) I've seen a lot of people with this problem, but I can't fix it the way they did. "Windows could not complete installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation."

Here's the catch:
I can't start it in Safe Mode.
I can't access task manager.
F11 does nothing.
I've tried alt+tab to see if these things are running in the background; they're not.
I don't have any disks.

It's an HP Pavilion dv7, and I got it refurbished.

Help?
