omni 10 operating system

Q: omni 10 operating system

I added a micro sd card to increase the stoarge capacity of my omni 10. I thought the card that was previously installed was a "space filler", I was not aware that it contained the recovery system. Somehow out of nowhere, bitlocker was installed on my notebook, and my device begain vibrating and indicating that it had crashed. So I rebooted it, and was unable to continue wihtout inputting the bitlocker password which I don't have. There was very little by way of outside software on the device, so I decided to recover the unit, only to find out that I had discarded the micro sd recovery disk. I do have all the original paperwork, and found my product number serial number and so forth. I downloaded a windows 8.1 from HP website, but it wouldn't install, because the version I downloaded didn't match the id on the motherboard. I have now ordered a new recovery disk from ebay for $5, and will attempt to recover the system, I don't know what will be left of the tablet, but I can live with it whatever it is. I had already installed Office 2016 on the device so I could have my current version of outlook on all my devices, and can reinstall it. My only question is what is on the motherboard, and how can I know it. All I know is it is windows 8.1 I' think, and I don't know what version it is or even if there are multiple versions. I can't find an answer on the website, and can't locate a contact for customer support. Worse case, I'll reformat the **bleep** drive and simply install windows 8.1 and leave everything else in the recycle file. I'd appreciate a succint answer from a knowledgable soul Deacon Jim

Preferred Solution: omni 10 operating system

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: omni 10 operating system

It is Windows 8.1 Standard (Home) 32 bit. HP does not make Windows 8.1 available for download so you likely got a retail version from Microsoft. But what is odd is that Windows 8.1 Home does not have bitlocker...only Pro version so that is a mystery. From here I cannot really understand what you are asking. The exact model number of the laptop or Product Number would help tremendously. If the recovery disk you got for $5 is for the correct model series it should work but will provide a bare factory reinstall.

Hey all! I am pretty new to this kind of Win7 issues, so I hope some of you will be able to help. Story goes...

After few hours of gaming the computer died. (It happened right after switching keyboards.) Now, on every setup BIOS(?) comes up with list of options (F2 enter BIOS, F11 boot options, F6 Flash etc.). After that a black screen with error message comes up: Missing Operating System.

I tried rebooting from USB (since I have no disk-drive) and I keep on getting the answer: Error Loading Operating System.

Any ideas?

Thx
 

A:Missing Operating System/Error Loading Operating System

All unlikely, but possible - (a) your HDD died. (b) your bios became corrupted (c) your HDD boot sector became corrupted (d) your HDD partition is corrupted.

Does the drive spin up when you switch on (feel it)?
Check the bios to see if the HDD is reported correctly and is at the top of the boot order.
Find a bootable CD - an OS installer, or create Easeus partition manager bootable CD http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm and boot from it. What does the HDD look like with Easueus?

I have an old HP Pavilion 8260 that I got for free which is having some odd issues. Any time I try to boot, I get one of these 2 errors (first it was always Operating System Not Found, now it's Missing Operating System).

Here are the steps I've tried so far: I tried to boot from a floppy with a disk I know works; tried to boot off of the CD Rom; Tried disconencting everything except Floppy, CPU, and RAM; Tried resetting the BIOS by selecting "Set to Default" and by pulling out the CMOS battery (it was after doing this that it switched to the Missing OS error message).

The hard drive is dectected in the BIOS, as is the CD Rom and floppy drive. It properly recognizes the amount of RAM.

I am fresh out of ideas, even though I'm generally pretty good at this. If anyone else has any advice, it's greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

Installed a DVDRW drive but comp crashed when installing some software and it stopped detecting my Primary Master and Slave drives. I've fiddled about with the Master and Slave configs and have managed to get it to detect my HD and DVDROM.

I've unplugged my DVDRW and my small HDD and am trying to get windows to load up.

After using FDISK /MBR an rebooting, I get "Missing Operating System".

Tried installing Windows XP after formatting, it seems to have installed but it's not loading.

Current config:

Slave: Pioneer DVDROM (not the DVDRW)
Master: Seagate 80GB (C: = 15GB) & (D: = 61GB).

D: has files on there that I'd like to recover. Too big to put on floppy.

I've run a search for similar problems and tried some of the solutions but no good. Any ideas? Thanks

Hey guys:

I'm an idiot!!! Last night I deleted my System Volume Information folder off of a Raid-0 set of hard drives. As I mentioned, this raid set is not drive with my XP on it. This is just a drive for storage of pictures, video, and other programs I prefer not to have on my C:\. I did take go as far as to turn off System Restore before deleting it. Now when I boot up I cannot access the drive at all. It tells me that "The drive is not formatted. Do I want to format it now?."

I don't want to do that and I am wondering if there is a way to create a new System Volume Information folder so I can access the drive again???

Thanks

A:Deleted System Volume Information Folder on a Non-Operating system drive???

I think you are connecting the dots...where there is no connection.

Deleting a system volume folder...isn't possible by me, even when system restore is not used (I always disable SR immediately after a clean install). Even though the folders are empty and I don't have SR employed, the system won't allow me to delete these empty folders.

I believe that the problem is your RAID setup...perhaps you ought to try to repair it.

This morning I attempted to perform a system restore on my other computer. I legally own Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and was using the 3 system restore CDs provided by my manufacturer at the time I purchased the computer. If it matters, the computer is a Sony VAIO AMD Athlon.

I inserted the disk before booting up the computer, and everything seemed to go fine. The system restore screen loaded and I chose to do the recommended system restore, erasing all the files from my drive and restoring to the computer's original configuration.

It began performing the normal "Restoring Drive C:" operation. About 20 seconds into the restore, I received this error message:
Disk Access: Sense Operation Failed

I hit "Okay," the only button available. I then received a message saying the system restore failed and my operating system may not perform correctly (what an understatement). I removed the system restore CD and rebooted my computer. I now get an error message, "The operating system has failed to execute." I can't do anything, except try to do another system restore, in which I receive the same "sense operation failed" error from before.

I tried calling their tech support to which I was told (after waiting 20 minutes to speak to someone) that because my limited warranty had expired, I would have to pay $19.99 per call to have it fixed. Yeah, right. Neither Sony nor Microsoft's online tech support pages were at all helpfu... Read more

A:XP system restore failure... operating system failed to execute

Hi;
I would guess that your CD is scratched or unreadable for some reason or that the CD Rom isn't reading properly. Give it a good wiping.
I would just format and reload XP if you have a fully licensed disk. Takes 39 minutes or less and you'll have a nice clean install and you get to start over. However....... if you have only restore disks I am unsure as to whether you can do an install from them.

Please help. All help is appreciated.

A:If I change my operating system to linux, can I still use windows' system restore?

The simple answer is no. If you remove an OS then you can not use it to do a restore because it is no longer there to run the restore program. What I would recommend would be to have a duel boot system.

choosing last known best settings hasnt changed this situation either.
basically i just dont want to see this screen, it prolongs the computer start up. i just got it today as a refurbed hp desktop from buy.com. i tried system properties, advanced, startup settings and unchecked both boxes, as well as clearing the boot.iti file to no avail.
a rep at hp that was nice enough to just give me an opinion said i need the disk that came w the pc, which i obviously cant get. any ideas?
thank you so much for your time.

A:Choose operating system at startup-windows xp or system restore

You probably could purchase the disk from the manufacturer. They make a lot of money selling them to people.

Post the manufacturer & model of the computer, and verify the exact text of the message. That message is odd.

I have been reading the forums and it seems that my win7 desktop has an issue with the system restore virus/worm/trojan. I was searching the web for information on teens huffing chemicals using Firefox & Google search. One of the pages began playing some annoying video, when I went to close it out I was presented with the same windows and warnings described in this post http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-vista-recovery

normally I would not post on forums concerning issues such as this. I prefer to find the fix myself but the malware seems to have taken itself to a new level on my desktop. I cannot even get F8 to work. The computer launches the MSI screen that offers the press delete to get to the bios and tab to switch to post but only the delete button works then if I let it load all of the way I just get a back screen with the little DOS line flashing but I cannot type anything onto the screen. The only keys that seem to work are control alt delete to restart the computer.

I have been reading through a lot of posts on these forums concerning this issue but have been unable to find one quite the same as my present situation. It would be great to be able to save the information on the hard drive but I just spent a year in Korea and while I was gone my wife misplaced the backup and start-up disks for the desktop.

Is there any hope or should I just trash the hard drive and start over with the desktop?

Thank you

While doing some heavy video work, I managed to overheat my system spectacularly, resulting in the smell of burning plastic, all my fans going at 100%, all lights on the PC going off and all buttons becoming unresponsive.
I pulled the side off to see what was going on and found a desert of dust in there. Possibly somewhat foolishly now that I think about it, I left it running with all the fans roaring away and directed my desk fan inside the case while I went and got the vacuum cleaner and an air sprayer and got most of the dust out. (Still with the system running. No, I didn't touch anything while doing this. The vacuum was held well out of the case, just to suck up the dust cloud.)
I then rebooted it and it died in exactly the same way soon after. Through subsequent repeated crashes, I have established that it goes off at roughly 1 minute and 42 seconds after the "Do you wish to enter Safe Mode?" screen is dismissed. Any delays (such as being in the BIOS) prior to and on that screen do not affect the timing.
Very oddly, safe mode works perfectly, and I can't see the bios complaining anywhere (not that I am remotely familiar with the BIOS.)

I used to think that there was something up with the 'system' file running in processes because it often times dials out to something when I'm connected to the net.

Before my fresh reinstall and putting in COMODO 4, I attempted to block system but it gets to the point where after system has tried to get through for several days the computer stops functioning properly.

So this time I left system alone but COMODO, through it's own default set up, has been blocking something called 'system' and 'windows operating system' which persistently knocks at my firewall.

So I am asking, is COMODO, through it's own default instict, in the right by blocking these?

And if these are trojans, where can I find and delete them? My scanners don't pick up the files and COMODO will not show a path to the files that are making these attempts on my firewall.

A:Question about using Operating System CD for system recovery

Yes, you can delete the partition; then create a new one in the same space and format it and continue the installation. The warning you see is just that you are about to delete the partition containing the current XP. The drivers CD will have everything additional you'll need, but after you regain internet access you may want to download from HP's web site and install the up-to-date drivers.

Hello everyone,

I am trying to do a system restore from the install disc because I can't boot. I followed this tutorial: System Recovery Options using method two. At step 5, the only operating system listed is Vista (which I don't have and never have had). If I select it and try to continue, it tells me that that version of windows is not compatible with the install dvd I am using. If I try to continue without selecting Vista, it tells me I have to select an OS. I have also tried startup repair to no avail.

Background information: This is on my early '08 Macbook Pro. I was using windows 7 professional x64 through boot camp. A few weeks ago after updating virus definitions for AVG, windows would no longer boot. I found that it was an issue with the update and that a system restore would solve the problem. Unfortunately, I can't get system restore to work properly.

I would appreciate any help. Happy Holidays!

2 System builder is tied to the Motherboard and is not allowed to be moved by Microsoft. I have in the past had to call in on a OEM where the motherboard went and was discontinued to get them to activate with the new hardware.
3. System builder will not upgrade VISTA like the upgrade version will do, It will do a clean install always except that it will do a upgrade of itself if started from within windows. Sort of like a repair install. If you boot off of it, it will only do a clean install and will offer to move your old windows and users folders to a windows.old directory.

That is the main differences off of the top of my head.

So nothing wrong with the system builder version for a new computer, It is what I used.

One other thing you will have to reinstall all your software and settings when you go from XP to Windows 7 as they do not do upgrades that retain those things even the upgrade version will move your old windows and do a clean install.

Good Luck
Roger

I have had my Dell 8700 for little over a year and have had problems from the beginning.  I am 72 years old, and I am at my wits end!!!

A hard drive was replaced in the summer of 2015, but I have still had problems with the computer shutting down and my having to refresh it to factory setting.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

A:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

Purchased in Nivember of 2015. This unit has been sluggish and recently when powering up goes black and displays "No operating System loaded" and will NOT start back up..unless I unplug it and wait 25-35 min..reboot and it will let me log in but about 10 min..slows way down and will NOT restart without the black screen saying that there is no operating system. I have been told that it could be a design flaw where the power/data cable for the HD is routed around the motherboard and there have been numerous defective cable/connectors that cause this. Best Buy is not being very helpful and I want a replacement. As of last night..It is NOT booting up at all now and has "forgotten" any connection to the Internet. Not wifi or Ethernet. Any help Lenovo? I have the original box and receipt.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problems.  From what you have described it definitely sounds like a hardware issue.  If Best Buy doesn't wish to exchange it then I would recommend that you contact Lenovo for warranty support.

A couple of times I have turned on my laptop and got the non-system disk error. I am familiar with how to correct this problem, however, this is different. I have no disk in any drive when this occurs. Please assist. Right now, I am ejecting the battery and re-inserting it to fix, but this can't be the real fix.
 

A:Operating System

Try running a check disc on that hard drive

click Start>>Run type cmd click Ok.

In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r click Enter Note there is a space between chkdsk and /r

You will be asked if you want a check disk to run on next startup click Y and then press Enter

Restart your PC

It will run in 5 sections please do not interrupt it let it finish.

Hi everyone,
I've been here in the past (several years ago) and now I have a problem. A friend bought a PC with windows 8 installed.He hated it, so he asked me to uninstall it--actually completely wipe it out and start over with XP--I have Wipe Disk. So I did, I've done this in the past, but only wiping out XP and re installing it and it worked fine--until now.
After about 1-2 minutes II get an error message telling me to basically disconnect the hard drive and such--not sure I understand that part. Is there a trick to this? Doesn't the hard drive need to be connected in order for this to load?or did I screw something up?
I have read that Windows 8 doesn't make it easy to convert back to a previous system, but...wow.
Any help would be appreciated as I have relied on you guys in the past and you never let me down.
I haven't looked inside the computer so I really don't have the specs--yet. Not that it probably matters at this point.
Thanks.

Hello i'm new to the forum and new to windows 7 os, so i had this wierd thing happen to my laptop yesterday. I have a hp dv6707us which had vista home premium 32 and i did a custom install to a windows 7 home prem. 64. Yesterday when I turned on the computer I had a black screen told me that i had no operating system, i tried restoring, putting in the os disk nothing happened.After i tried those I shut the computer down then turned it back on I had my operating system again as if nothing happened. I was wondering if this kind thing happened to anybody if you have any info sure would appreciate it. Thank you

A:No operating system

Hi,

That is a little bit unusual. Sometimes, not always, this is symtomatic of a potential disk failure. How old is your laptop?

To check the health status of your laptop's hard disk, please download, install and run this program:

CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World

Post the resultant image here so we can look at it further.

You also try running a CHKDSK using these steps:

1. Open an elevated Command Prompt by clicking the Start Orb, and then typing cmd.
2. Right-click on the cmd icon, and choose Run as administrator
3. In the Command Prompt window type chkdsk /f and hit enter.

The computer will inform you that a chkdsk will run at next startup, so shut down the computer, and then restart it. When you restart the laptop, a CHKDSK will run before booting to Windows - it can take some time, so let it complete.

Regards,
Golden

If you received neither an OS disk nor a restore disk you should contact the company from which you purchased your computer and ask them to supply one. They usually will do so for a nominal fee.

I no longer have use of most of the functions that originally came with my operating system (Windows 10).  For starters, the Window's icon for the start menu fails to respond unless you right click it.  When you do, that all you get is the basic menu that includes the control panel, file explore, etc...but no apps like before.   All the apps seem to have disappeared.  Can't do a search for them because the "Search Windows" feature doesn't respond.  It doesn't accept any text input from the keyboard.  But I am still able to access the internet, although I do experience problems with web page freezing up...particularly with Internet Explorer.   Then I end up having to close the browser using the task manager. I suspect this is an issue with the operating system, but could be totally off.  Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks 

A:Operating System?

Hi,From what your describing this is either mostly likely virus/malware or problems with OS integrity due to amount of issues your expirencing I would advise you factory reset the unit. If you still have problems after this get back to us and will can look into it further. EDIT: don't forget to backup data before starting, and you can access factory restore by esc key at startup then when options are presented selecting f11 for system recovery. James

Hi,  I've got an HP 530 Notebook that I bought at auction.  It has NO Operating System on it.    It had Windows Vista Business on it new.  I have also purchased a Windows disk and Product Key.   Is there a way to get this up and running again?  What about drivers or a BIOS?  I can use a computer REAL well, but have no idea how to do all this...   I didn't know at the time that I bought it that it didn't have an OS on it.  ANY help is greatly appreciated.  I really want Win7 as it is better than 8 or 10.  I don't even know if this is capable of having those OS on it. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!  Thanks!
