Q: Windows vista recovery error CTOERROR.f​lg and following that error 0x643 while insta

Hi All
system info : HP LAPTOP DV6 -1256tx , windows vista sp1 32 bit
When I am trying to install windows vista sp1 from recovery disks/partition I am getting the error from recovery manager prompting me to choose either to retry or see the details for failure : CTOERROR.flg in form of notepad on my desktop. I have done retry 100 times but to no avail. I cannot restart after this recovery failure message as it shows dialog box on restart: windows security update is not installed successfully or is not trusted.So, i have to go through recovery process again to see the desktop (everything functioning - internet,video, music all) but only once.
Last time i got this message too . When i did installing windows from recovery disks few months back, that time i figured out to install all imp. updates through automatic windows update.All the updates were installed successfully and then it restarted and gone through process of language settings,time settings and all....
But this time when i am trying to update windows, i am getting windows update error 0x643 which is for security update for .net framewrok 3.5 sp1 and family update.I do know the answer how to get away with this error from "windows help" and also from this forum too, which asks for installing .net framework updates from windows update site directly. But the problem is:
Windows update ask me to restart after automatic or manual windows update installation takes place and restart causes problem as it shows dialog box - windows security update is not installed successfully . I need to install all updates in one go like last time from my understanding.:
1. So if i install windows update (to try my luck as last time) it shows 0x643 error for .net framework and asks to restart and after that when i try to manually install failed updated 0x643 it asks me to restart the windows for pending updates.
2. Alternatively, If i try to install failed update first just after recovery failure it won't allow me to install important updates for vista sp1 and asks to restart windows.
All i need is to successfully update all updates through windows automatic update which is not happening at the moment.
Not even able to upgrade to sp2 bcz it too restarts for installing.
Please Help.
Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Windows vista recovery error CTOERROR.f​lg and following that error 0x643 while insta

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.)

Do you have the original (no SP1 or SP2) Vista installed? You won't be able to install SP1 otherwise.

Several days ago i was getting ready to make a new partition in order to dual boot linux in addition to windows vista, so i start up computer managment and right click and click create new partition and my computer gets a blue screen and shuts down...
Weird i think, so i start up my computer again and i get the Error Recovery; "Windows has failed to start... a recent hardware or software change might be the cause... etc" and i click start windows normally. it does the same thing, blue screen flash and shuts down instantly. I ran diagnostic tests to see whats wrong and it says everything is o.k. By this time im fed up and i just am ready to fdisk or do a factory reset. I start a factory reset and it gives me an error box with no text in it.

I need to know what to do so i can factory reset it or fix it, i would also like to save my important documents and music if its possible.

This seems to be the major problem these days with laptops, they are mishandled all the time and "NoBody" did anything to it. I have now see 3 machines in the past week with problems. All were taken to a tech shop, and the motherboards have been damaged.

Hello jkswanda,I just read your recent Vista post on the Malware Forum. CatByte feels that your computer may have a hard drive issue. To determine your hard drive manufacturer, please click Start (orb), right mouse click on Computer in the start menu, and click Properties. Select Device Manager (top, left side of page) and click on the (+) sign next to Disk Drives. Let us know what it lists.It would make sense to start by attempting to run the onboard Dell Diagnostics. See this link: How to Run the Dell 32-bit Diagnostics Utility. Select the Custom Test then Hard drive. If it offers a short and an extended test, run them both. Report any errors that it finds.

I use an Acer laptop: Aspire 4720-4538

Earlier I was using it, and everything was running normally, and the battery died. Plugged it in, let it charge for awhile, and when I turned it back on it took me to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen. I selected "Launch Startup Repair" and the screen went blank for a moment, and went right back to the recovery screen. Tried it again several times with the same results. Next, I tried selecting "Start Windows Normally" and it tried, rebooted, and took me back to that screen.

I bought it in 2008, refurbished, with Vista pre-installed, and it did not come with disks.

Okay, I'm having real problems here. Along with the problem with my laptop not connecting to the internet, this morning I've run into a problem with my desktop, ( dell running windows vista home). When I sat down to the computer, it had a bluish/ black screen and nothing would bring it out of that state. I turned it on and off and now I'm getting a "Windows Error Recovery" screen. It shows "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause". It then gives me two items to select from; "Launch startup repair (recommended), and start windows normally". I've tried both and it just keeps coming back to this screen. When I click on Launch startup repair, it instantly goes back to this screen. When I click on start normally, it runs through the startup and then goes back to this screen. I've tried safe mode, (and all of the items you can pick from) and it goes to this screen also. I can't get past the "Windows error recovery". I'm having problems with my laptop and I believe its due to windows updates so if it had updates installing, I'm sure my desktop may have been loading updates and either they messed up my windows startup files or maybe they were installing when the power went out, or when I turned it off manually.
Anyway, any help I can get would be appreciated!! Both computers are down and I'm computer stupid!
Thanks in advance for the help.

I have vista home premium 32 bit. I currently am running the factory installed 2 GB or RAM. The current RAM is 2x1GB of DDR2 PC2 5300. The RAM I purchased for upgrade is 2x2GB of DDR2 PC2 6400. I have been operating the 2GB of RAM for a little over a year now with no problems except that I want to upgrade. When I installed the 4GB of RAM my laptop wouldn't boot properly. I got a Windows Error Recovery. I had the choices of either repairing or startup as normal. Either choice was unsuccessful and led to a reboot and thus a never ending loop of no progress. I reinstalled the original 2 GB of RAM and ran a system restore and everything is back to normal....except I dont have 4GB of RAM! Whats my problem and what other information can I provide help with a solution? Thank in advance.

Tried everything. From adding full user control to trusted installer and creator/owner in Windows/Microsoft. net and Program Data directories to therepair service verifier, making sure virus scanner is off, fixit solutions, sfc /scannow's clean bill of health, uninstalling a few upgrades mentioned with .netframe 4.0 and 3.5 etc etc. I get a fatal error if I try to uncheck .net 3.5 (the only version I can see since all other have been uninstalled) in 'turn windows features on and off), smartmsizap, msiinv, Smart boot(cold boot? with the startup items not checked and initial boot config). I think something is wrong here with either registry or program permissions because the initial 4.5.1/4.5.2 install zips to a random c:/ directory and then it asks me to find netfx_core_x64.msi which I point to in that directory, but says it is not the netfx_core_x64.msi that came with the installation.

As of current, I do not have any working .net framework which is bad because 1) some progrmas, ie video games require it 2) my schoolwork/development environments need it for things like Git

Another weird thing is although I manually installed net framework 1.1, only 3.5 shows up in the 'turn windows features on or off' and I can't 'uncheck' it or add the sub trees underneath it. Almost like it is not there but doesn't want to install additional componenets or be completely uninstalled.

I would greatly appreciate help in this matter.

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows Vista Ultimate, Service Pack 2 (I believe).

I have always had trouble with Sleep mode on this computer. When entering sleep mode, I cannot wake the computer back up, and I so I must resort to a manual reboot, which often causes problems.

Last night, I accidentally clicked on Sleep instead of Shut Down. Of course, because I could not wake the computer up, I used the power button to shut it down. This morning, I again pressed on the power button to start it back up.

I was eventually taken to a black screen saying "Diskette drive 0 seek error. Press F1 to continue and F2 to [some] menu." Following the advice posted on a website, I pressed F2, then accessed Standard CMOS Features, and disabled Drive A.

This got rid of the diskette error, but it did not get rid of the constant looping from the Dell screen to the Windows Error Recovery screen (which I usually get when rebooting from Sleep mode) to the green loading bar screen (the green bar stops loading about 2/3 the way to completion) back to the Dell screen and back to WER, etc.

Thus, there is apparently no way that I can access the computer which I speak of. I have tried Starting Windows Normally, with Safe Mode, and with Last Known Good Configuration. They all provide the same result (back to Windows Error Recovery).

Again, I will be exceedingly glad for all assistance that can be rendered on this is... Read more

Earlier today I was using my laptop and had a monitor plugged in (if that matters) and I was listening to music and organizing files (it has no problems with minor multitasking like that), and I left for a bit. When I came back everything but the mouse was frozen. I tried CTRL+ALT+DEL and a buncha stuff and eventually had to restart it. Now it gives me an error when trying to start. It gets through the Dell loading logo, but brings up a menu with the options:
Launch Startup Repair (recommended)
Start Windows Normally

When I click option 1, the screen goes black for a second like it is trying, but then goes right back to that menu. The other option (2) pretty much resets the computer, and then brings me back to that menu. I've tried restarting, and I also ran the repair option with my Vista disc (original OS), which finished but didn't do anything.

I have no idea what to do, and I'm REALLY DESPERATE! I need my laptop to work! PLEASE HELP!!!
Thanks a BUNCH!

Hi everyone, so my gateway laptop is acting up. I tried restarting it once and I left it for about 5 minutes to let it do its job, and I came back only to see that it failed to restart completely because it froze. Since I could come up with zero ways to reboot it "safely," I held the power button until the computer shut down, waited for 2-3 minutes, then turned it back on. However, seeing as I've done this same procedure whenever I had this "freezing" problem 3-4 times on this laptop, I didn't think anything could go wrong, but as the laptop started to turn on, it took me to the windows error recovery window. It gave me two options: launch startup repair, start windows normally. On my first trial, I selected the start windows normally and let it do its job. I was watching TV, and so waiting wasn't really a hassle, until I noticed that the "moving bar" thing has been moving and loading for over 30 minutes. This was new to me, because before it would start windows normally. I pressed the power button again, and it took me to the same windows error recovery screen. On my second trial, I chose the launch startup repair, and it started checking for disk errors, COOL. The screen also indicated that it may take one hour to complete etc., but as I was watching TV and glanced at the monitor, I realized that it went back to the "moving bar" loading thing, so I thought that it was fixed seeing as I didn't really see the transit...

STOP 0x124 (the WHEA Uncorrectable Error) is most frequently a hardware problem - but it can be caused by incompatible software (or even low-level driver problems). We usually suggest running hardware diagnostics to rule out the hardware. Here's my page with links to free diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

You had a bunch of memory dumps from back in April. I did not run the analysis on them as they don't appear to be related to the more recent one's (July 27 and later).

Riva Tuner (along with MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install them immediately!

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

There are 3 memory dumps (all are STOP 0x124) - but there are another 3 listed in MSINFO32, and they aren't STOP 0x124

Hello. I have Norton 360. I ran across a disturbing message earlier today. A notice popped up saying something about malicious activity on the computer.

I upgraded my husbands computer from Windows Vista to Win7 Home Premium 32bit. Did a full backup under Vista to an external drive, and also used Easy Transfer. Wanted to do a clean install and format the hard drive due to past computer problems. All went fine until I used easy transfer to put the ''old''files back onto the computer after the new Win 7 install. I'm getting a ''protected content migration'' error,asking for a password. My husband did not have a password on the old user account,but just to be sure we have tried every password that we have used. No luck with any of them.
How do I know what it is that we no longer have access to?
Is there anyway for me to recover access to these files that are supposedly password protected?
Should I do anything as drastic as just doing a full restore back to Windows Vista from the backup copy and change anything and then start over?

Any help would be completely appreciated. Thought I had been so careful,and was very prepared for any issues.......

Both the backup and the easy transfer files are stored on an external hard drive,just FYI.

Hello. Last night, I noticed some unusual activity on NIS security history. First of all, I noticed nearly 50 entries of Unauthorized access blocked (Access Process Data) with a medium severity rating. The file name it lists is C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\LSM.EXE for all of them. I scanned the file with norton, but there were no problems with it.
Secondly, I noticed there was an entry that said "User logged in" the second all this started, but no one was logged on and there's no evidence of anyone being logged on and there's no entry afterward of "User logged off". Is any of this anything to be concerned about? Thanks.

Anyways yesterday I posted about how I accidently uninstalled some preloaded Windows programs, I reinstalled some of them, but now my laptop's all funny. When I connect to The Internet, any program that I open freezes for like 10 minutes, after which it unfreezes. During this time I normally restart my computer, with no success. If I open Windows Live Messenger and Internet Explorer 7 together it freezes normally.
Pinball, WordPad, Sound Recorder, and Volume Control cannot be restored.
Also, I tried using my Toshiba Recovery DVD, with no success. It says Loading RAMDISK Image, then it reboots and loads the exact same system with no changes made. I called in to Toshiba support, a customer service rep and I redid this process, and no success. He says there might be a hard drive corruption so severe that it refuses to accept The DVD.
What can I do?
My computer specs:

Toshiba Satellite a100
Windows XP Home SP2
Intel Centrino dual-core 1.6 GHz
100 GB hard drive
DVD-RAM multi-layer burner

Yada yada.
Please help, and if you require any more information I will be glad to provide it.

BTW, I had this exact same problem with my previous laptop, which was the same kind. That one, I returned it to Future Shop and I got it exchanged for this one since it was still 2 weeks of my purchase. It's been 2 months, however, so that option is not open.
Update: When I connect to The Internet, if I try to open ANY programs it freezes, not just IE7 or WLM.

I tried to burn a single 400MB (or so) file to CD, and it got stuck for hours partway through. Is there a file size limit in the burning process? It was a blank CD, and I asked to have it treated like as USB stick when prompted, which I seem to recall was similar to UDF packet writing. In case it matters (I suspect it doesn't), it was a zip file of selected parts of a file tree.

After cutting up the coaster & disposing of it, I tried again, but this time, I descended to selected nodes in the subtree and zipped selected sub-subtrees (i.e., nodes in the subtree that I zipped up above), then got rid of the sub-subtree for which I had created a zip file. It seemed to work fine this time. However, when I ejected the CD, Windows said to wait while it closed the session so that it could be used in other computers. Hopefully, that doesn't mean finalizing the disc, i.e., I can still write (overwriting some files if desired) as if it was a USB stick.

P.S. From a quick google, I didn't come across a mention of some file size limit that people were running into.

A:Limitation​s & assumption​s in CD burning

Chances are it was a bad disc. I assume you are burning onto a RW disc, then you will be able to re-write files. Closing the session is not the same as finaising the disc. It is establishing file system data for the disc which will be re-written next time. I have accidentally burnt whole disc images files (.iso) to disks before as opposed to writing the image data to the disc, these are usually around 650mb so do not indicate a file size limit. Using CD's for large file storage is not recommended as it will be VERY slow if trying to open the ZIP from CD. When it comes to using the ZIP I would copy the file back to HDD before opening it.

Hi, I'm using recovery disks to recover Windows on my Lenovo G505 (the onekey recovery partition is corrupted). When I select either of the 2 recovery options using the disks I get the message "create recovery file (aodstat.dat) occurs an error" and I'm unable to proceed. Can anyone advise what this error means? The notebook is still under warranty. ThanksEd

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with an issue I'm having in Vista.

I was trying to navigate to a webpage in Chrome, and then webpages started to refuse to load past a certain point (e.g. the tab would show the page's title, but the tab itself would be entirely blank). When this happened my computer started to freeze for periods of time, after which it would do whatever I had told it to (e.g. I clicked the "x" to close Chrome, which it did after several minutes) for about a second then freeze again.

I decided to restart the PC by holding down the power button. When I turned the PC back on I got the screen saying that one or more of my disks needed to be checked for errors, but I told it to skip the disk check (bad idea, I know, but I was in a terrible mood at the time and wasn't thinking too straight). The computer then froze on that screen, so I restarted it again.

After restarting it the startup repair program ran, as Windows would not start, and took a while checking for errors before asking whether I want to run system restore, which I do. After running system restore it gives me an error message saying:

"The instruction at 0x737e989e referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be read."

I then click on "OK" and the computer goes to a screen with six recovery tools on it (Startup Repair, System Restore, Windows Complete PC Restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, Command Prompt and Recovery M... Read more

I have a Gateway Dx43003 running Windows Vista Home Premium. Due to a power supply issue I have not used it for about 6 months. Power supply issue has been resolved. Since I had backed up all my files previously I decided to do a factory reset using my the recovery discs I created when I got the unit. I inserted the first disc with no issue, following the prompt I inserted 2nd disc, walked away while waiting for prompt for 3rd disc. When I came back to check there was a black screen but the disc had ejected just like the first. I inseted the 3rd disc thinking it would continue with no such luck. Screen stayed black for hours. Decided to shut down and restart. Restarted, went to Gateway splash screen, to microsoft working screen, then to black screen with no change. I decided to reboot to safe mode. Safe mode screen came up as normal. It went to the " install backgroud with windows installing" message, then it showed the error " windows cannot complete in safemode. to continue installing windows, restart computer".Decided to try safemode restart again, but select "restart windows normally".This time I got "Windows install background again with windows is installing" message, then error box popped up with " the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an enexpected error. windows installation cannot proceed. to install windows, click "ok" to restart the computer, then restart the installation".

I'm currently trying to fix a computer that has the "Windows Error Recovery" error which doesn't let me login. All of this started after cleaning a virus. The computer was acting goofy so I decided to scan it using the Microsoft Security Essentials and it actually found one but it said that it was partially removed and it suggested to download a utility (I don't remember the name) to do an offline scan, I downloaded this utility to a USB drive and boot from the USB, it did its thing and it actually found the virus again and this time it removed it completely, after this I tried rebooting my computer and it’s when I got the "Windows Error Recovery" error.
"Windows Error Recovery" Screen:
All I see is a screen with the following options...
Launch Startup Repair (recommended)
Start Windows Normally
When I select the first option, it tries to fix the error but after a while it shows a message saying that the problem couldn't be repaired. The second option basically brings me back to the same screen described above.
The other thing I have tried is the Advance Boot Options...
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
etc ...

But all of the above options take me back to the "Windows Error Recovery" screen.
Any idea how can I bypass this screen? 
All I want is basically be able to login to backup my files and then reformat it. I refused to the idea of reformatti... Read more

Now when I turn uit on I get the message Windows Error Recovery

Then 2 options,
1 Launch Start Up Repair (Recommended)
2 Start Windows normally

I cannot select option 2 having tried 3 different Keyboards, so I am left with option 1, which when it counts down oes to the Screen with a list of different languages

But before I go ahead & click this I want to know if I would loose all the Data on my Hard Drive as I have pics of babies christening, School plays & other very important data which I have no back up for.

I know I know, yes I should of backed it up but this was Christmas time & being so busy with 4 kids & the fact that I am very seriously ill taking very high amounts off morphine, at times I m not fit to get out of bed let alone think "my brand new PC is going to crash & burn"

Pleae can anyone help me out by letting me know if I would loose my Data if I go ahead & do the recommended Launch Start Up Repair

Or is there a way I can select option 2, so that I can get into the Data so I can back it up?

I have a Hp pavilian M7750n that I'm trying to do a full system restore on but when I try using the recovery disk it starts and then I get a blue screen with "error 1012" I know the recovery disks work because I've used them before but since then the dvd rw drive broke and I replace it with a asus dvd drive.

Am I getting the error because of the drive isn't the factory drive?

Is it possible to do a full system restore with out using the disks?

Is there another "not too expensive" dvd drive I could buy that I wouldn't have this problem with?

I suspect a hard drive failure on my old notebook (2009 vintage)
HP Pavilion dv4-1530ca
Model: VM160UA#ABC
[Personal information removed]
Windows 7 - 64 bit SP1
BIOS Version/Date  Insyde F.67, 29/11/2010
Memory upgrade from 4 to 8 GB (2015)
I have been through the recovery process - several times using my 4 recovery disks.
All hardware has been removed from the laptop (e.g. the mouse - memory still at 8 GB)
Each time the recovery process goes to completion and then I see  Error 0xe0f00013
I have done a Google search and ended up at this HP site.
Question #1:  What this error code mean?
Does it mean a hard drive failure? If so, is there a compatible hard drive that I can use to replace it. I have read of users have replaced there hard drive with a 'hybrid' drive that will not function.
Question #2: Can I recover from this error? If so how?

hi, you say it does not recognise the system recovery disk, have you accessed the BIOS, by pressing f1, f10, f10 or del then go to boot order and make sure the cd is booting first then the hard drive. Also in the bios check if the cd-ROM is detected.
Is it possible to access safemode through f8? or can you only choose the two options displayed?
I think it might be that your hard drive is failing,
Also make sure the BIOS setup doesn't inhibit wrting to the boot sector
Check this to see if the hard drive is failing.
