Windows7? recovery?

Q: Windows7? recovery?

So I tried to Reinstall Windows7 of the recovery CD, that came wiht my computer. Apparently its stuck on the "Installing Dritek Launch Manager(acer)"
6/32 for most then 2 hours. any ideas at whats going on?

Preferred Solution: Windows7? recovery?

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: Windows7? recovery?

Do you have an Acer computer? Your profile shows you running Vista? Is this Reinstall Disc for 7 for this computer? Pull the disc out and clean it of any smudges or fingerprints. And try it again. What Is Dritek Launch Manager? | eHow.com

During recovery - error message: "system image created using efi and this computer is using bios"

My efi bios lists:
windows boot manager with efi label
dvd ram without efi label
dvd ram with label in addition to above when win7 install dvd inserted
hdd without efi label (ntfs)

Thinking it's a boot sequence problem I tried all possible combinations as well as the probable. In some cases I get missing bootmgr of course from the HDD and the familiar "this version of windows is incompatible with the system......." The most successful attempt and the error msg "image created using efi and this uses bios" resulted from any combination which had the non efi dvd ram before the hdd

This follows a virgin install of Win7/64pro and a successful backup to an expansion drive. The original win7 drive was replaced with an identical but empty target drive.

Hello maxxx and welcome to Seven Forums.

Don't know if this will be much help but which system imaging tool did you use? There have been reports that the native Windows 7 imaging tool can be kinda useless at times if that's the one you used. Other recommendations include Macrium free, Paragon Backup free, and EaseUS Todo Backup free.

HP will not have them any more. You can go to a third party site like  http://computersurgeons.com/ There are also still some "mirror" links to Windows 7 OEM images Microsoft USED To make available.  Post back with any more questions. I hestitate to post all the options since I don't know what you are willing and able to do. Was the laptop ever upgraded to Windows 10? If so reinstall is MUCH easier.

Hi--My Pavilion G6 stopped working and the usual Windows7 recover options didn't work, so I sent away for a Windows 7 USB stick recovery kit from HP.  Following the included instructions, the notebook boots up off of the recovery stick, and gets part way through the recovery process but then displays this error: "Windows cannot find 'F:\System.sav\Util\Rstone.exe' Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." This was an automated process, so there could not have been a typing error. I tried the process several times, but can't get past this point.  Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!

Hey guys,

I'd like to sell my laptop but i first want to restore the laptop to erase all my stuff.

My laptop is a HP pavilion dv7 2040eb, originaly bought with Vista on it together with a code which gave me the opportunity to upgrade to Windows7 with a reduction in price. So i have W7 running at this moment.

When I open up the 'Recovery Manager' of HP it tells me that it's meant for Windows Vista and that there is a slight chance that certain apps and drivers won't work no more... (so i didn't go on with the recovery)

Also I made a set of Recovery Disks whit the 'Recovery Manager' while i was running Windows7. But now i don't know if my computer burned Windows7 on the disks or Vista :s

I'm just worried because the factory setting was Vista, but i replaced it with Windows7 and I'm not smart enough to see which software i burned on the disk

I realy want to put W7 back on it because it's much better than Vista...

Hope you guys can help me!!
Greetings and thanks in advance!

I've had some problems with my computer and am consdering wiping out my hard drive and reinstalling Windows 7. The problem is: I don't have a windows cd to boot it from. My friend doesn't have one either, but he has his recovery disk. We both have Sager laptops but differing models. I was wondering if I could use his recovery disk just to reinstall windows using the microsoft product key under my laptop. Will doing this just give me the drivers that are compatible with his hardware and I can just remove them? I've downloaded my hardware drivers onto an external hard drive and was wondering if i could just load up a clean win7 os that way.
Thanks for your time!

A:reinstall windows7 using friend's recovery disk

Well...you need to understand just what recovery disks are.
They may rely on files which are on a hidden partition on the system's hard drive which was originally installed...they may not.
If the system is not the exact same model...using recovery dsiks from a different system is just an invitation to more frustration.  If you look at those retailers selling "recovery disks", you will see that they definitely are system specific...there is no general reovery disks which can be applied to different system models.
I also imagine that using someone else's disks...will result in the Windows license applicable to the disks used on another system...will show up on that list which Microsoft maintains for known compromised license keys.

My computer froze during an update, upon restarting the computer I now I have a endless loop error.    A black screen appears with the following message.
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

The computer is a gateway zx6971-ub10p, No windows installation disc was included,
(I had previously made one but am unable to find it, also don't have the box/packaging anymore). I do not care about recovery anything on the computer, I just need to get the computer working again for school.  
Windows Memory Diagnostic found no problems, Various Safe Modes, Last Known Good Configuration, Start Windows Normally,etc... do nothing. 
Was going to try http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery but I don't even know my 25 character product key, no warranty from Gateway now, and no $ to take this thing somewhere.  
Is this computer toast?!?    
If anyone could help me out I would be so grateful!!!

A:Windows Error Recovery Loop(Windows7), Help Please !

Looks like the computer can't find the registry:

Status: 0xc000014c
Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt."

Several different things could cause this.  Start with these free, bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
I suspect the hard drive, so be sure to run that test.  Also, run the MemTest86+ as I don't trust the results of the Windows Memory Diagnostic
Does the computer have a Windows sticker affixed to it?  If so, that'll contain the Windows Product Key

I have a question about this.

Right now I will upgrade my Vista laptop to Windows 7 . I already did it before with the RC and worked great.

Anyways there are certain functions on my laptop I use . So that's why I didnt do a clean install. But if there is any problem and I need to reinstall windows. I will have to install Vista first . Till SP1 is the best I believe and then again Windows 7 .
A big hassle if you ask me?

Is there a way to make a bootable DVD or something of my laptop once I upgraded to windows 7 and I take kind of a snapshot of that moment.
or something else'

Like when i got my laptop I had to make 2 DVD's so I could reinstall windows. Was hoping I could do the same with Windows7 somehow.

Another thing is. I have an English Windows Vista on a machine but will get a Dutch windows 7 upgrade. I don't think I can upgrade from a English to Dutch right? Although the upgrade is Ultimate?

I also can install an English version of Ultimate and use the key from the Dutch ultimate? or is the key from the box really only for the DVD that's in the box ?

thank you for your answers.

A:Recover deleted file without recovery softwares in windows7

A year ago is a very long time. Most likely Windows has long since over written that area of the disk to a point that anything that you would get would be very incomplete and unuseable.

Unfortunately my disk is broken completely and I am not able to boot it anymore. Is there a way to download somewhere the data from the recovery partition?

My Model: Satellite A660-16Z (italian model)

Operating System: Windows 7

Next I tried to order from the web
the recovery image, but after inserting the serial number, the web-system shows me the message:

For your device no recovery medium can be ordered, because it comes either not from the region of Toshiba Europe, or it is too old for this service

thanks in advance

A:Satellite A660 Windows7 home recovery data needed

The notebook belongs definitely to European series so the only plausible reason why you cannot order the recovery disk is: notebook is too old.
In such case you can install only a clean Windows 7 system. The essential drivers are available on the Toshiba EU driver page and could be installed after the system installation.

Yesterday morning when I turned on my laptop, I got the "BOOTMGR missing error". My laptop was working with no problems till the night before, so I don't know what happened. Anyway, I tried everything recommend on this forum and elsewhere to fix the problem. But nothing seems to work.

Since I don't have any important stuff on the laptop, I don't mind reinstalling Windows 7 if that would solve the issue. But I don't have a windows 7 installation CD. I have a Samsung R540 which came pre-installed with Windows 7. I went to the Microsoft recovery centre and tried to validate my windows product key but it is not validating.. Is this because my Windows is pre-installed?

Also from the command prompt I can see that I have a recovery partition. When I start the laptop, it says "press F2 for setup and F4 for recovery." But while F2 takes me to the BIOS screen, F4 doesn't do anything. While searching online, someone suggested that the recovery partition must be made active. So I went to command prompt and made it active and tried again. But it has made no difference.

So now I don't what else to do.. I don't really care about any data. I just want the laptop to work.. Is there no hope for me?? I would really appreciate any help
Thanks in advance

My aim is to have a Windows 7 bootable cd as Microsoft is going to kill Windows XP on April 2014.

I have Vaio laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit with 4 recovery discs that I created but I haven't used it so far as Vaio never gave any trouble.

Is it illegal or possible to create Windows 7 cd from my Vaio laptop Recovery Discs so that I can use on my another desktop that has Windows XP SP3 as Windows XP era ends on April 2014 ?

A:Is it illegal or possible to create a bootable Windows7 cd from Vaio Recovery Discs ?

The recovery disk is only for that one Vaio laptop only. It won't work on any other machine as contains the operating system, drivers for that machine and activation key. It not only wouldn't work but would also be illegal. Why are you so concerned about XP coming to an end? It doesn't mean XP is going stoping working. It's just the end to support. Get a backup program and do I regular backup so you can get it back up and running should something should happen.

I have an HP Compaq dx2000mt desktop that has windows7 32bit enterprise installed on it. I tried to install windows7 home 32bit to replace the enterprise OS. As I was installing it stated the old OS would be marked, XXX.old and it went forward, then came to a point where there were booting errors. and it stopped installing. Now I am left with a half install, and a full OS the boot section now in its own drive named disk 0 system reserved.
I partioned the C drive and allocated 20gb and tried to install there. I received the same errors seems that my boot.ini is stuck in the system reserved and I cant figure out how to incorporate disk 0 over to disk C, so that my boot is in the same disk drive.
I have really messed this one up. I have installed an operating system before and never had so much trouble.
Any advice would be helpful.

Hi Jaibird,

A hard disk is not 32-bit or 64-bit and does not depend upon the installed OS.

Yes, in some parts and no in others.
You can access files/folders from the partition Hard Disk (Documents, Photos, Favourites).. But you cannot get the messages saved in outlook.

Be advised that the (Documents, Photos, Favourites) will NOT merge into your current Windows 7 64-Bit.

I have vista 32-bit and can do an inplace upgrade to windows7 32-bit.
Can I also do a dual boot and run windows7 64-bit on a second hdd? On the same machine!
Will I have to purchase a second key or would the same key work for both

If I install the 32-bit win7 can I upgrade to 64-bit using the same key or
do I have to purchase a second key to do This?

A:windows7-32bit & windows7 64-bit

To the best of current thinking says the same key will work both 32 & 64 bit. you can dual boot both and should be able to use the same key.

Hi All,
I am an experienced user and can normally fix my own problems...But. I have an older MSI K9AGM board and want to use a gt240. I currently have a PNY 9600GSO overclocked 768 meg card. Runs like a champ. I have 550 watt power supply but there is no donngle to card. Unlike the 9600GSO. I plug it in after I installed the PNY drivers and Windows begins to load. It freezes without displaying the four lights that become the win logo. I reset and get the system repair option so I attempt it. It freezes.
I then take the thing and put it in my kids intel p4 board.Also MSI 945GCM478-L. He is running Vista Home premium. Begins same problem after installing the PNY driver and reboot but his system repair works. Fixes problem card is great. But i can't get it in my 7 box. I have updated all drivers and I mean all. I have to wonder since my board has ATI drivers if the problem isn't the geforce versus ATI i have seen for years. But it really doesn't solve the system repair not working. Either drivers fighting or broken files and a forced reformat and reinstall.
So I throw myself on the mercy of the Great Gurus of win7 world and ask for help.
Thanks in advance.

A:PNY GT 240 and Windows7

Welcome to Seven Forums donnietr. When I installed my GT 240 (see my system specs). I just installed the card, and let windows find the driver, which it did. After I got it working, I then went to nVidia site and downladed latest Windows 7 driver. Suggest you uninstall the nVidia drivers AND any ATI drivers. If needed to remove ATI drivers, this is for advanced users:

Catalyst Uninstaller

Try installing without install CD. See if windows finds the card natively, then update driver at nVidia site:

It seems that when someone having windows 7 sends an email to a person using XP, there can sometimes be no scrollbar in the email. Have you ever heard of that or know the fix? It makes the email impossible to read unless the receiver forwards it to them selves

Even it is in beta phase, I think 7 is better than Vista SP1 hehe...

I have vista64 ultimate. System meets compatibility requirements for windows7. Used for games such as Crysis, MOULa, LOTRO, MS Flight, Avatar the game, etc. Active email, blogging, etc. No business. Will windows7 home premium edition do? Or shoud I go for Professional or Ultimate, all 64bit? UPgrade or complete new install? I can download current documents and pics, games, etc. that I want to keep. Where to buy? MS home is expensive; cheaper at locations on NextTag, but??? I only want legal programs. What else should I consider,do? Should I even change?

A:which windows7?

Out of curiosity I just checked the price for a Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate Upgrade from Vista Ultimate 64-bit and it is expensive at $183 !!! If you don't need all of the extra business stuff, a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM only costs $99. I have Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium and I have no problems with any of the latest games. I have Crysis, MoH, MW, MW2, BC2, and Black Ops all running at max settings. The only difference with an OEM license is that it doesn't come with the free Microsoft support for the first 90 days that an upgrade version comes with, but with sites like this... who really needs Micro$oft?

A:XP to windows7

That CPU will do fine for Windows 7 Home Premium or better Windows 7 Home Basic does not support 64bit mode cpu's

Before installing Windows 7 I would go here to the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your system meets Windows 7 requirements also hardware and software compatibility.
I hope this helps.

I have got windows xp on my C Drive and I have patitioned my hd and installed windows 7 on my new E Drive and copied my important files to my E Drive (Tested and they work).
My question is: Can I replace my windows xp with windows 7, meaning that I would have windows 7 on both C and E Drives.
My intention then, when Windows 7 is released in October, is to activate Windows on C Drive, move my files/folders from E Drive to C Drive then delete E Drive.
I hope all that makes sense.
Simply put: Is it possible to have Windows 7 RC on both drives?


A:windows7 X 2

Simply put, yes.
