Windows 8 Failed Setup

Q: Windows 8 Failed Setup

Hi I'm new to the forums and I'm having a problem installing Windows 8. I downloaded the Win8 assist and proceeded through the steps and purchasing a copy of Win8 Pro. Now it led me through to a long download where it took at first 11 hours but I switched Ethernet cable in where it momentarily paused before continuing at 1 min download. Then asked for a reset so I did. When coming back no sign of win 8 assist. Now whenever i click on Win 8 setup it says:

Setup is unable to launch Install.exe

The system cannot find the file specified.
[Errorr = 0x80070002]

Has the download been corrupted to the internet change? If so any idea how I can uninstall the original donwload files and do it again?

Many thanks in advanced for any advice

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Failed Setup

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.)

I am typing on my phone so hopefully you know my situation just by that!

I had just replaced my hard drive from my sony vpccw29gx. It was corrupt. I bought a different brand hard druve, but same rpm.

I ordered the recovery disks from sony. I installed the disks, but after the windows 7 installed, it restarted, then when it booted, it sais "starting services", then said windows could not install on my hardware.

I calldd sony back, and they sent me ANOTHER set that were supposedly the right ones. I went through the process and yet again, the error came up.

Hi, I turned on my refurbished computer and the power got cut off before I could finish setting up as per the instructions that were sent with it. Now it is stuck on a screen that says the account is disabled, contact your administrator. There is only an OK button and it does nothing. There is NO power button so I can't do shift+restart, window button + R doesn't do anything and I've tried everything to start in safe mode to no avail.... Please help!

Sorry for hijacking your thread, I'm actually have the same problem too.

Reinstalling Windows XP and problems accessing Laptop HDD to backup files

I have been using the command below to install XP onto another HDD for my Targa as a upgrade/replacement. I have been using the Targa laptop long with the new HDD plugged inside an enclosure to do the installation as I know that it couldn't be done on different computers due to different hardware and drivers.

E:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:D: /tempdrive:D: /makelocalsource /noreboot

where E is my external DVD drive (main CD drive not working) and D is the new HDD plugged in the enclosure

I think it was on the "preparing installation stage" and it said it will take 60mins. After copying all installations files to the enclosure, I think the /makelocalsource commands makes it do that. After it finishes copying the files the install window just closes and I was left with all the files it copied to the HDD on the enclosure. I pretty sure the window shouldn't do that and just to make sure I took out the 160GB HDD from the enclosure and replaced it witht the current HDD into the HDD bay of the targa and as I expected it didn't work.

The 160GB was formatted in NTFS beforehand (Quick format)so I didn't tell setup to format it again too but I wasn't too sure of the file allocation size so left as default. I just tried making another partition on the replacement HDD too with 800MB as FAT32 but after entering the comma... Read more

Sounds to me like you need a new hard drive first and foremost. There are really 4 reasons for install failure being hard drive, memory, cd disk or cd drive but this sounds like the hard drive to me.

Houston, I have a problem. It started yesterday when attempting to log on to a user account, McAffee states that it detected a virus and recommends a scan. I click 'ok' once or twice and the following message appears: application failed to initialize (0xc0000005).

After reading through some of your posted solutions, I had to C-A-D to get task manager up so I could run Microsoft Anti-Spyware. It detected one and I removed it. I then started a McAffee scan and it found another one (maybe more, but I fell asleep waiting for it to finish). When I logged back in, McAffee was saying the same thing, I C-A-D and a c:\ window appears saying c:\WINDOWS\temp\setup.exe

It has been like this for 45+ minutes. I can attempt to shut it down, and it asks if you're sure (which I am not) so I cancelled out to let it run. The cursor inside the c:\ box appears to be moving around every 30 to 90 seconds. . . leading me to believe that it is doing something.

When I fire McAffee backup, I cannot find the one file it found before I fell asleep (not in quarentine anyway).

Any recommendations?

A friend of mine brought me her laptop because it would not boot into Windows.

I tried resetting the bios to default and changed it to boot from the disk.

When trying to run Windows repair from the disk it just hangs on the blue splash screen.
When trying to run Windows install it gets stuck on "Setup is starting".

I have waited for about 30 minutes or more in both cases just in case it was just taking a really long time but the laptop showed no

activity. I have tried several times and gotten the same results.

I ran Puppy Linux from a live CD and was able to access the hard drive to back up the user folder so the hard drive is readable. I ran

ntfsfix and it was processed successfully but it didn't actually fix anything.

So I booted from the Windows disk again and used shift-F10 to get the command prompt, then ran diskpart, but I never got the command prompt. It just shows

X:\Sources>diskpart

Microsoft Diskpart version 6.1.7601
Copyright <C> 1999-2008 Microsoft Corporation.
On computer: MINWINPC

But the DISKPART> prompt never shows up, just a blinking cursor.

I tried chkdsk C: and get "The type of the file system is NTFS." and nothing but a blinking cursor below it.

Anyway any info or ideas of where I can go from here would be appreciated.

During the setup of vista beta 2, right after i enter the product key ,i got this message "setup failed to open the windows image file" = i reburned the image onto a dvd+r at the slowest speed, still same message, after which the setup quits, any ideas?

No idea why, but I had the same problem last night... So I reburned and expect to get the same problem with the new DVD-R. Wierd... Very weird... I can open the contents of the DVD in windows explorer once I've logged into WinXP and I can see all the files and folders but for some reason after I input my reg key it tells me that the image file is not being opened... No reason why.

Anyone know what we're doing wrong? Maybe using the wrong software to burn our copies? Or the right software but the wrong settings?

Please advise.

I think you could be right.

One way to determine whether or not the CD drive is at fault is to try burning a Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu, on to a disc and install it.

If it fails to install via the CD, try installing it again from a USB pen.
Instructions on how to put Linux on to a USB pen can be found here:
Universal USB Installer ? Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux

If it successfully installs from the USB pen then your CD drive is faulty and you will need to replace it if you want to install Windows XP.
If not then your CD drive is probably fine and something else is at fault.

Note: Apparently there is a way to get Windows XP to install from a USB pen but I haven't tried this myself and most online guides look pretty complicated. Unless your up to the challenge I would stick to testing Linux from USB which is a lot simpler.

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, even though you said its an m50, does it have any other numbers after it, for example S4182TD? Can you remember what the error said, or did it just say shut down?

I'm assuming this is XP, so can you get to safemode, if you pull the plug to restart it:

Alright, well my dad has some programs and stuff that he didn't want to get messed up with Windows 7 installation, so last night I installed it while he was sleeping so he couldn't say no. I did an upgrade and went to sleep. Today I woke up and it says the upgrade failed, reverting back or something, then it restarts and gives me two options. Windows 7 and Windows 7 backup or something. Windows 7 just boots into windows then gives me an error message about restarting the computer with vista and the setup just loops back to the failed upgrade. I feel almost sick because my dad is going to be extremely mad about this as well as the rest of my family. We essentially have a broken computer and my parents need it for email and my dads programs. What can I do? is there anything I can do without a clean install because I can't loose this data. I never thought I'd run into this problem. I feel so bad.

Hi, after recently having a lot of virus problems (that have since been cleared) I attempted simply re-installing XP and starting over, but in the midst of that the installation didn't complete, coming up with a missing file. I tried to replace it but it didn't work. Now the computer is clean, but on startup, it asks if I want to start the XP Setup (which choses itself automatically if I don't move the arrow up within 2-3 seconds) or the actual OS already installed. What I want to do is simply remove the option for continuing setup on startup. I'm not sure how to go about that, but I imagine there must be a way. If anyone can let me know I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

"Setup Drive 1 failed. There was an Int13h error 2 reading Drive 0, cyl0, head1, sect2, count1"
What the heck is this ???

I am installing a WD23200,3.2 gig drive on a 1995 Ami bios board with a Intel 133 cpu. Bios auto detected after the third attempt, system stalled 5 seconds into the floppy seek. Tried to use WD's Data LifeGuard Tools program, the drive tests "perfect", installed EZ-Bios, it asks for system disk, put in a Win95 disk, starts to read and then that darn message appears! The bios check tells me that the system bios is not controlling the drive correctly and another check revealed that the Int (80h) was put in sec 3253; the drive only has 3249.3. BUT.........
I can boot the system and EZ bios takes over, gives me the A or C selection, I insert a system disk and the darn thing stalls, I press "C" and i get "No PT ; insert system disk".
Drat, darn Shucks, Oh dear! HELP ME...........thanx in advance
 

A:Setup Drive 1 failed

Never used ez bios but I found this, hope it helps

EZ-BIOS no longer loads after booting my system directly from a
non-system floppy disk. What can I do?

User turns on the machine with a diskette in the floppy drive that
does not contain bootable system files. The message "NON SYSTEM
DISK" or "DISK ERROR" is displayed on the screen. Noticing the error,
the user removes the floppy and re-boots the system. Now EZ-BIOS
will not load and the computer hangs. All cases of this error have
been linked to a virus on the floppy disk which infected the hard drive
and overwrote EZ-BIOS. The following procedure will restore EZ-BIOS
to the drive:

NOTE: This process requires EZ-Drive 8.01W or later.

1.Boot directly from a bootable floppy diskette.
2.Insert the EZ-Drive diskette.
3.Type ez /mbr and press Enter.
4.Remove the EZ-Drive floppy disk and reboot the computer.
EZ-BIOS should not load normally.
5.Run virus scan software on your hard drive and floppy disks.

I'm trying to reinstall a Microsoft product (SQL Server) after a disk crash corrupted something. Now everytime I try to reinstall, it fails near the end (something to do with failure to connect or start sql server). If I try and re-start it says a previous setup has failed please reboot.

So there are 2 issues actually but it's the latter I'd be interested in right now. IOW, how to I let Windows know that I want it to think it is installing the product for the first time.

Hope someone can help me with this one, it's driving me nuts, and I don't want to have to rebuild my machine just for this.

Thanks,
Daniel Klein
 

A:Previous setup failed - restart required

Hiya

Found something:

http://www.microsoft.com/sql/using/tips/administration/July9.asp

Q. SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition installs SQL Server executables and program files on both of my clustered servers simultaneously. If one of my servers goes down, how can I rebuild the server and reinstall SQL Server on that node?

A. You can find directions for this core SQL Server 2000 clustering procedure in SQL Server Books Online. Run Setup, remove the failed node from the configuration, repair the node, then run Setup again. When you add that node back into the SQL Server 2000 configuration, SQL Server reinstalls and reconfigures itself appropriately.Click to expand...

Is that what happened? I assume so. This is for the books online:

http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/productdoc/2000/books.asp

However, this is a large download.

having a look here,

http://www.sqlmag.com/Forums/Thread.cfm?CFID=16739794&CFTOKEN=88953881&CFApp=57&Thread_ID=78709

They suggest deleting "c:\program files\Microsoft SQL Server" folder.

I tried a few more xp setup attempts by deleting or formatting the partition and starting over but i still get the same blue screen error.
I got fed up and deleted the partition and just wanted to go back to using win7. However i am no longer able to do so, is it because the xp bootliader has wrote over the win7 one? Can this be rectified without installing xp?

Hello,

I use port forwarding on port 3389 on my home router so I can remote to my PC from wherever I am. I have some concerns about the amount of unauthorized log on attemps that are present in the security section of event viewer on my home PC. Obviously someone is scanning for open ports, and from what I can see none of the attempts were successful at logging in, but I'm wondering what approach I should take to hide the presence of this open port?

I realize I could use a different port for RDP instead of the traditional 3389, but if anyone is scanning they would still see it?

I'm open to any suggestions.

Thank you

I installed the latest round of Windows updates for my Win7 x64 install and it never completed (ran for about 24 hours) so I powered off the machine. Upon restarting, it said:


Code:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" and has instructions for using system repair, then at the bottom:

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: Oxc000000f
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
So I booted off a Windows recovery disk and figured Startup Repair would fix it. Alas, after it says "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options" and asks me if I want to repair, I click "repair and restart" and it says "Failed to save startup options".


Code:
The "repair details" are:
Name: {bootmgr}

The following options will be added:
Name: Windows Recovery Environment (recovered)
Path: Recovery\...\Winre.wim
Windows Device: Partition=D:
I've tried running Startup Repair from the manual options screen and it says it cannot repair automatically. I have two partitions, the 100MB windows System partition, which Recovery Console mounts as C:\ and my main windows partition, which it mounts as D: and I can see all of my files on it.

A:Many failed update on history windows failed to configure startup

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)

Malwarebytes

Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.
