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.)

Hello. I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this topic but I think it is.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7. Recently I made the decision to restore my system to "out-of-the-factory" settings using the Toshiba program that came with the computer to do this. This went well.

when this was done, the computer restarted, and after the normal start-up screen, it began installing windows.

About halfway through this process, my brother decided it would be funny to turn off the computer in the middle of the installation.

when I turned the computer back on, it went to the windows installation again, but very soon an error message came up saying

"the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation."

However, after pressing OK, the computer restarts, but the same error message comes up, leaving me in a loop.

So is there anything I can do to fix this? Or does my brother owe me a new computer?

Btw I don't care about losing data, I have everythign backed-up on an external hard drive.

A:"Computer restarted unexpectedly....windows installation cannot proceed" installation loop.

I think you need to reformat C: (delete the partition) and (redo partition) using ntfs drive and restart the installation. Do you have a OS Windows Disk?

Which drive can i use to finish this installation?What is the make and model of the SSD that you have installed? By the way, do you realise that Microsoft have refused to provide any updates for Windows 7 on systems that have Kaby Lake processors?  Your 510-15IKB has a Kaby Lake processor, so no Windows 7 updates, ever!  I think that you will have difficulty with the Intel drivers too -- they will refuse to install.  I recollect someone fixing that by editing the INF file to fool the system into thinking that the driver is compatible.  I don't remember where I read that, so you will have to search for the details. If you are a small business and you need to use Windows 7 because of a business-critical app that does not work on Windows 10, you should sell your Kaby Lake laptop and buy a laptop that uses the previous generation processor, which is Sky Lake (e.g. a 510-15ISK).  Microsoft are continuing to offer Windows 7 updates for Sky Lake systems (until support ends in 2020). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Hi every oneI have recently installed windows 10 on my Lenovo ideapad Z580. My laptop's alt, Esc and F4 keys stopped working. I had have the same issue last year but it solved by itself. Honestly I forget what I did last year to solve this problem. I had googled the problem and searched lots of forums and websites but most of users had this problem because their F4 key is combination of Fn and F4. In my case my F4 is not Combined by Fn keys.I check my keyboard in the keyboard tester website and it seems the keys that I mentioned do not work there. The thing is I had this issue last year and I had checked my keyboard by a keyboard remapper namedSharpKeys to notice if it had a hardware issue and the keys ( alt, F4 and Esc ) did not work there too But it repaired by some work that I did and I forgot. I had updated all of my drivers and I updated the BIOS before. But I checked for newer version of BIOS. But issue is not solved yet.I will be thankful if anyone could help. P.S.: I had started a similar topic in microsoft forum and nothing helpful comed yet. System Info:Lenovo Z580Win 10 Build version 1809

Hi,

I have purchased an old Dell Inspiron 510 m. I have got HP PSC 1210 all in one printer. When ever i put HP printer installation CD in the PC, after few minutes it ask me to put original Microsoft Windows XP CD which came with the laptop to complete the installation.

As i have purchased an old laptop, the seller didn't had the original windows XP CD which came with the laptop.

This is what it says exactly-

Windows File Protection

Windows Files must be installed for your installation to proceed

Insert your Windows XP Professional CD-Rom Now.

There are three choices- Retry, More Information. Cancel

I have also used 2 methods suggested by Microsoft but that didnt worked. Here are the solutions prescribed by Microsoft-

Please help as without printer installation, my work is getting affected.

A:Windows Files must be installed for your installation to proceed

I believe the only way around is to get a Windows XP CD - Home or Professional - depending on what you have installed. It doesn't have to be the one that came with the laptop though so if you have a friend you can borrow one from it should work fine.

A:Computer restarted unexpectedly windows installation cannot proceed

You are deleting all partitions during the booted install to get it cleanest, and following the other steps for a Clean Reinstall Windows 7? Those steps assure you'll get and keep a perfect install.

If after doing those proper preparations it still hangs Starting Services, then first try entering Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation to disable any erroring drivers shown there, and if that doesn't help try new installation media as discussed in Step 1 of tutorial

Simple solution found for Dual Boot errors!

Here is an update. Since no one else has seemed to find a solution I actually managed to find my own. Just to recap you on what had happened to me, I was trying to dual boot Windows 7 x64 with Windows Vista Ultimate x64. Somewhere in my use with Vista my BCD was corrupt/deleted and caused this error to appear. (Windowscould not update your computer's boot configuration.) After searching my computer I found the registry settings were correct, and file access to the folder that contained the BCD was correct, However my BCD was corrupt/missing and so I was unable to finish the installation and get my computer to dual boot. I found this out by typing bcdedit.exe in command with admin access and it gave me the warning "BCDedit.exe could not be run. BCD is either corrupt or missing".

In order to fix this it was quite simple. I had to use the original installation disc for vistato repair my computer's boot files. Unfortunately I didnt have an install disc that would work with vista since I purchased mine before SP1 came out, so in order to repair it I had to create a slipstream disc with the SP1 updates added to it. after repairing I instantly was able to see both Windows 7 and Windows Vista in my boot manager when I restarted my computer. I easily fixed and finished installation with out a hitch, and I'm now staring at internet explorer inside of Windows 7 typing this message. I hope this will help anyone else ou... Read more

Hi, I have xp pro sp3 installed in my pc and just yesterday I've encountered problems.

- XP will stall on the welcome page and my cursor would hang. No hdd activity since the hdd LED on my case doesn't show any light anymore.

- If I reboot after the win splash screen it goes to chckdsk automatically. If I allow chkdsk to proceed it hangs at 7 percent of verifying files at stage 2 of 3.

- Even if I leave the pc for 3 hours the 7 percent has not changed and the LED lamp of my hdd is off, indicating no activity.

- I've attempted several times inserting my XP installer cd, but then it seems to hang at the point wherein it says "Windows is starting up" but then even if I leave the pc alone for a couple of hours the screen is still showing the same starting up part. Again the LED lamp is dead hence no hdd activity again.

- I've tried doing this several TIMES TO NO AVAIL.

- I have no backups of the files in my hdd, hence I just can't reformat my hdd right away.

- I also don't have a spare pc at home or nearby that I can use to back up my hdd. I do have a Vaio, but after upgrading to win7 recently, the hdd on that laptop has been locked out. It seems my upgrade was faulty somewhere. This though is another issue that i would have to post anew.

Ok here is the scoop:
I currently have a laptop running Win 7 x64 and I also have a desktop. This desktop, has a blank HDD. This desktop also has no optical CD/DVD drive installed currently. This means then that I must use a pendrive formatted to FAT (NOT FAT32 or NTSC) because this build is quite old but still has good hardware. I downloaded the official x64 Win7 Ultimate .iso file from microsoft. I now have two problems:

1)Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool says that the OFFICIAL .iso file is invalid and wont let me create a bootable usb stick. This I resolved by doing it manually using the program PowerISO to extract the files to the FAT formatted usb drive

2)It works... well sort of, I get to the "Install Now" screen and click that. Setup begins. The first screen i am faced with says that it is missing CD/DVD drivers with the error message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now. ". My question is WHAT DRIVERS?!, there is no CD/DVD drive and the setup wont let me past until I pick one.

For #2 I've read a couple threads and they said to switch from SATA to AHCI. Unfortunately i am unable to do this because my BIOS is Phoenic -AwardBIOS. Can somebody please tell me what i need to do because I am completely stumped.

Hello All

My SONY VAIO VPCEB15FX laptop has been getting the S.M.A.R.T failures. I checked with SONY and since my laptop is more than 12 months old - could not get them to help me with this issue without paying (laptop started having issues exactly after 15 months- not so good for a branded laptop). So i thought i will try to handle this myself, created the recovery discs, repair disk and backed up all the data in 15 DVDs. I bought a WD Scorpio Blue hard drive (WD5000BPVT - Advanced Format Drive) and replaced the same in my laptop and started off with the recovery discs. I chose to restore complete system and it proceeded. Once it completed the process - the system restarted and the OS Setup began - now comes the issue. When the setup started it throws this error "Windows setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's Hardware"

I ordered the SONY recovery discs - repeated the above RESTORE process - but still facing the same error

Hi,

as my PC always got locked after some 10minutes (surfing on the net, Ms office use,...) I finally decided to reinstall Windows and made a recovery installation disk. Indeed, removing all software (office, Chrome,...) and reinstall it did not solve anything
I reinstalled it and noted the installation was very slow indeed (hours) until it stopped at step 47 out of 47. Waiting again for sooo long for step 47 to finish, it did not move on at all.

I restarted but then was asked by WIndows7 for an administrator password. How can I know, I did not create any user.

So restarted in safe mode where I could create a user with administrator rights (if did not create a pasword for it)
Then I could log on, but it brought me again immediately to the Toshiba Leading Innovation screen on top of windows again getting stuck again at step 47/47. No move at all again.

I then decided to lower the safety level to the lowest level as to "when software is installed you are not asked for authorisation".
Indeed, step 47 then finishes.
But then I get another installation step with comment "De systeemprestaties worden nu geclassificeerd". This is the dutch text meaning "Systemprestations are now classfied".
I progresses somewhat but after some 10 seconds, it stops and the progress bar does not continue anymore. Waiting hours does not help and sometimes windows automatically restarts. It starts again with executing step 47 out of 47, going back to "Systemprest... Read more

A:Recovery installation does not proceed on Satellite L850D

Hmmmm.... it is not easy to say what is wrong there.
Which notebook model do you have?
If I understand you right you didn’t create recovery media (DVD or USB), right?

Usually recovery image installation should do the job, except there is some problem with recovery image or HDD. I have installed recovery image many times and cannot imagine what else could be the problem.

Stupid thing is that you didn’t create recovery disc and you are not able to test it now using such discs. You are not able to test it with new HDD now because you don't have the recovery discs.
You know what; the problem is that there is no some kind of workaround. Either it works or not.

I really don't know what to say now. All you can try is to set BIOS to default settings and try again.
Please do it and send some feedback.

Hello! I am new to Lenovo and picked up my 1st laptop yesterday when my HP died. I have always had HP and grew tired of how easy they break & poor battery life, so I wanted to try a different band. I love the computer, the keyboard, track pad & screen are amazing. I bought the ideapad 320-15IAP for about $330 (Including tax) The specs at the store advertised 4.5-5 Hours of battery life, but I have not been able to get a charge better than 2 hours. For someone that uses my laptop at work and on the go, this will not do. Can any one offer up any advice? Does lenovo sell stronger batteries for ideapad that I can replace with this current battery?  My next issue is the Windows 10 update that you are forced to do, I have been trying to install it since 9PM last night, it is now 9PM tonight, a full 24 hours, and it has not fully installed.

It sounds like the HDD may be having trouble reading the boot sector and might need to be replaced. Have you tried using the "novo" button to enter BIOS and see if you have a HDD diagnostic you can use?  If you can enter BIOS, change out the boot order, try your USB and CD/DVD.  If it boots from USB or CD successfully then I would suspect a HDD issue, one that may require replacing the HDD to cure.CB

Got on the phone with Microsoft, they remoted into my computer and started an upgrade from Windows 7 to 10. It froze at the "Getting Updates" screen at 75%. Once the computer restarted, I was shown this error:0xC1900101 - 0x4000DThe installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation. By this time, I had ended our 1.5 hour call, so I called back the next day and got a new rep. Before trying anything, he remoted into my computer and informed me that my BIOS does not support Windows 10. The latest BIOS for this machine is from 2011.  Is there really no way to install Windows 10 on this computer? I have 2 of them running 7 right now, and I'd hate for them to become vulnerable after Jan 2020. ALSO:I was told by the first rep that if I do an upgrade from 7 to 10, I won't need a new key, but a clean install of 10 will require some work on his end to activate it. The second rep straight up told me I had to buy a new Windows 10 key.

Hello, for the past weeks I've been trying to tackle the following issue.I have a Lenovo Ideapad notebook that came with a 32gb eMMC card for storage. I wanted to downgrade it to Windows 7 so I ended up cleaning the card/drive completely. Soon after I found that there were no drivers available for Windows 7. So I tried going back to Windows 10 with the disc. The problem is I get the following error when picking the drive during installation:"?We couldn?t create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files.?I tried so many 'fixes' that I found during research but can't past this roadblock I've manually created the partition and even manually moved the installation files to the primary drive. Something tells me that it has to do with the eMMC. I can't even install a normal drive since there's no space for it.Please help guys!!

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.
