Win7 Installer fails with BSOD & error code: STOP: ...

Q: Win7 Installer fails with BSOD & error code: STOP: ...

Hi everyone,
I just bought an Electronic download verison of Windows 7 Professional from http://www.itsnotcheating.com.au to upgrade my system from Windows XP Pro SP3. The setup starts and gets past creating a user account, setting a computer name etc and then restarts and looks like Windows 7 is going to startup and then I get a BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH with:

STOP: C000021a [Fatal System Error}

The intial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xC0000001 0x00100400)

It then mentions about dumping the memory out to disk and reboots. If i press F8 and attempt to boot SAFE MODE I get a requester saying that setup cannot be completed in Safe Mode. If try the startup recovery the first time it says it fixed a problem and wants to restart again but it has fixed nothing. Next time the startup recovery just runs and doesn't appear to finish. I have run the Windows Memeory Diagnostic within the setup and memory checks out fine. I initially thought the onboad audio chipset was the issue and disabled that but it made no difference. I did get one successful installation but it eventually crashed and burned with the same error after approximately 12 hours.

I have posted another article regarding this on Microsoft Answers and was advised that I have corrupt install files by the MVP Moderator.
I have re-downloaded the installer again and tried again with the same result. I have been trying to work this out for the last 5 days. I have also tested my install files on another box and they work faultlessly so there is nothing wrong with those.

I have found one common element another forum user on Microsoft Answers has listed a VERY similar problem (see link to forum article): http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-IE/w7itproinstall/thread/7a4d570e-b0af-4a58-956f-66e14cdb4e4a

The common element is that we are both running the following motherboard:

Has anyone else tried this mainboard with Windows 7? The board is flashed to the lastest BIOS version offered on DFI's website. The board has worked faultlessly under Windows XP. I have included my system spec's below.

DFi LANPARTY 925x-T2 Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz Processor
4 Gig RAM (comprising of 4 x 1 Gig sticks of DDR2)
3 x 120 Gig Western Digital Hard Drives connected via SATA
1 x LG Dual Layer DVD Burner connected via SATA
NVidia Geforce 9400GT (1 Gig Model) PCI-Express
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS (have tried without this in the machine same problem)
Windows XP SP3 Operating System with all the latest updates

Please Help


Preferred Solution: Win7 Installer fails with BSOD & error code: STOP: ...

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: Win7 Installer fails with BSOD & error code: STOP: ...

Out of curiosity, what do you have your ram voltage (vdimm) set at in your mobo bios?

And do you know the exact brand and model number of your memory?

That error could be in relation to DVD drive. Try creating a USB install key and install from that while the DVD drive is not connected. If it installs, play with it for a day or so to test.
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Also if you want highest chance of install success, you might want to also remove 3 of those ram sticks and go with only 1GB. You can replace them after you're satisfied the install went right and stable.

Hi folks

I found my way here after being unable to update to IE10 on Windows 7 (32)

the windows update error is:

"Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7
Installation date: ‎09/‎05/‎2013 10:22 AM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 9C59
Update type: Optional"

I have attached the CBS.zip file. (NB: when I pasted the copy of CBS folder to my desktop I got an error message that access to CBS.log was denied. Maybe this is normal?)

I'd be most grateful for any help you can give.

the copy/paste problem is common - which is one reason why I tend to prefer just collecting the CBS.log file on its own.
Copy the C:\Windows\logs\CBS\CBS.log file to your desktop, and compress it, then upload that.

I am having a BSOD problem. I am seeing STOP code 0x0000005A which is a critical_service_failed code. 
I can't system restore, recovery image or start up repair. I am slightly freaking out because of course I don't want to lose all my files. 
I did windows memory diagnostic and that turned out fine. Right now I have just downloaded Seatools Hard drive test that I saw posted on pcsupport and I am going to attempt to run it from cmd prompted if possible and just make sure my hard drive is still intact.
Now I can remember what I did yesterday and any changes I made if necessary. 
Yesterday I tried to resolve a problem that I had been having for a few weeks where my computer wouldnt restart or shutdown properly, it would hang up on the logging off screen, shut down screen or wait while we configure windows screen. I did a clean boot and only loaded up windows key services. I downloaded rkill and emsisoft free emergency kit and ran rkill then the emsisoft. Emsisoft found 6 files that were affected, one of them a registry file. I am not sure if this is the problem but I quarantined those 6 files including the registry file and then I set back some of the Toshiba services and other services that were turned off and then I restarted my computer. When I did that, I got a blue screen of death and my computer wont boot up at all.
Could I get some help please?

Windows update for IE10 on Windows 7 64bit fails continuously with error code 9c59. I tried the stand alone updater with the same results. All other windows updates complete successfully, it's just IE10 that continually fails.

Don't know if this is related but I do have problems with IE8 (current browser). After a while, an open IE window will become non responsive and can't be closed out. I have to use task manager to close it down. I have sent off the reports to MS, but no solution has appeared.

I've attached the cbs file. Let me know what else I can do. Thanks.

A:Windows update for IE10 on win7 64bit fails with error code 9c59

There are no significant file errors in either SFC or CheckSUR logs.

In these cases, it has sometimes been a solution to uninstall IE9, reboot a couple of times, and then reinstall IE9 again, before installing IE10 successfully.
It's worth a try

I'm new to posting on these boards but I'm going to do my best to follow all the guidelines. I ask your forgiveness in advance, just in case. I wasn't able to use the system specs tool because it says .NET won't install. I found that interesting since I believe .NET to be the root of my problems. I've been trying to run Windows Update for far longer that I like to recount. This computer had been on a shelf and my bosses want to bring it out for a new employee. It seems to work fine, except for it absolutely will not update and sometimes when I run Windows Update I get BSOD with Invalid Kernel and stop error 0x0093. I have tried everything I've found in the Seven Forums that applies to my version of Windows and errors. I have tried countless FixIts, but nothing has worked. I finally gave in and registered with y'all and I hope someone can help.

Thanks for your time.

I've been plagued with error code 124s for over eight months (which is about as long as I've had the system) now on my laptop. There's nothing specific that seems to trigger the crash - I can be doing anything on the system, even just letting the system idle while I'm in the bathroom. After a couple of seconds of freezing, and the sounds, if I have any on, also going on a short repetitive loop, the system crashes with the BSOD.

When I had Windows Vista, the crashes were a LOT more frequent, sometimes a couple of times a day, at least once every couple of days. After installing Win7 (as soon as it came out, practically, as I was hoping maybe the issue was with my installation of Vista), they went down to once every two weeks or thereabouts, and with the system a lot more reliable, I didn't think much of it and kept using it.

Now I've gotten two crashes yesterday, and two today, hours apart. One today was just a little after I booted the machine, and the crashes are starting to worry me again.

I've ran Memtest for about 10 hours with no errors whatsoever, if it helps. I've tried some other stuff like updating drivers, fresh reinstall of OS, etc - since I've had this problem for so long, I've tried most of the things I can, and I'm practically at my wits' end. I don't have any other problems with the computer.

I've attached the related files. I can also attach crash minidumps if it's needed. Thanks a lot.

Greetings benevolent community.
I have a Sony Vaio T series Laptop (Model SVT131A11W) made in China bought in India. Great machine while it lasted. Yesterday had trouble connecting to Skype. Decided to restart. The following appeared on the dreaded Blue Screen...

Technical information:
STOP: 0X0000007E (0XFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0XFFFFFF8800164CEAA, 0XFFFFF8800311D9B8, 0XFFFFF88000311D210)
iastor.sys - Address FFFFF88001645EAA BASE AT FFFFF8800161000, Datesttamp 4ed5a567
By the way these hexadecimal numbers vary every time I try a different option but the 0X0000007E code remains the same.

I have tried all the F8 options: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc right down to Start windows normally, but it keeps reverting back to the blue screen. The "Launch Startup Repair (recommended)" option loads the files but goes back to the blue screen. I cannot access anything on this machine.

Grateful for any dummy's guide help please

That situation is critical. The storage controller is failing here, which may actually occur from the disc too.

Try the bootable disc check.
SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use
Dont forget to set the storage controller to IDE, as you have AHCI/SCSI (I cannot be sure without seeing the data) enabled.

Does it find any error?

If not, the best and the easiest way is to boot into the BIOS (advanced setup), disable Intel Rapid Storage, Intel Smart Responce or anything of this line, if present, and then perform a clean reinstall.

Hello, peoples. I seem to have attained a BSoD yesterday.

The STOP Error code was "0x0000010D (0x00000005, 0x00000000, 0x00001202, 0x84E36560)".

I believe that one of the problems is MotioninJoy's DS3 Tool program and it's driver, as every time I attempt to use it, it BSOD's. I also believe that another problem is my PSU's fan, as it does not seem to be working anymore (I plan to buy a new PSU in April... Hopefully it'll last long enough til then...).

I have attached the zip file containing the system information, as per requested.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Zero Aurion.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Also, the BIOS is very old, off 2006. The latest available one is old too, of 2009. If possible, tryto update the BIOS to the latest. BIOS Update [NT94510J.86A]

Assuming that you can get into Safe Mode (from what you said), try uninstalling that device, restarting back into Normal mode, and see what changes may have been made.

Hello there!

For some times my computer has been shutting down after being on for more than 24h by the screens just going dark or something similar, this is probably due to a memory leak but I'm not sure. Now yesterday I got a BSOD instead which read something like "nvlddmkm.sys error".

I've been spending my whole day trying to fix this in safe mode (which works without any kinks). The first thing I tried was rolling back drivers, then updating to the latest and lots of driver related things, I still haven't fixed it but I decided to see if I could turn my computer on in normal mode with my GC disabled via device manager, now instead of crashing at the Windows screen, I now crash after the Welcome screen and I get a BSOD that reads IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with 0x0000000A as the stop error code.

Now what I wonder is if there's any chance to save my GC or is it completely toast? And if I decided to get a new one, will that even fix it? Since I still get BSODs without my GC turned on in the device manager.

Hi there. This is my first time posting on this forum so I hope some one can help me. I have posted on Tom's hardware about the problem but haven't received many replies.
About a month ago I came home and my computer had a bsod and that one was Stop 0x00000124. I really didn't think much of it like I should have and let it go since I couldn't reproduce it. Well just this last few days my computer bsod on startup nonstop with Stop 0x00000101 and it also says something about a secondary processor not receiving a timed interval. I can start it in safemode without any problems what soever. My build is home built and as follows.

CPU: AMD A10-5600k AMU
GPU: Nvidia GTX 470
RAM: 2 Corsair 2gb sticks
PSU: Corsair CX750M

Everything is relatively new. Maybe 2 months old tops except the graphics card which is about 3 or 4 years old. Things I have already done to troubleshoot this are.

1. Open the case, take out all the components, clean them, reseat. Still bsods.
2. Ran Memtest86 and no bsods or failures. I also have two other ram sticks which I have used and it still bsods so I am almost 100% sure it isn't the RAM.
3. Ran cpu test called prime95 as suggested by someone on Tom's hardware and no bsods (in safe mode).
4. I have reinstalled almost every driver except the chipset because it will not allow me to install those in safe mode but I can't even get my computer to boot at all anymore aside from safemode without bsodding.

Ok - I'm trying to fix my friends' computer - Toshiba Satellite L455-S5975 running Windows 7 32-bit

When I click on "Advanced Settings" I get "There was an error opening the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security snap-in" followed by it "failed to load. Restart the Windows Firewall service on the computer you are managing. Error code 0x6D9."

I scanned the computer using both Avast and Microsoft Safety Scanner (full scan and took over 2 hours) - no infections or issues found

I installed all Microsoft updates and followed suggested restarts.

I ran Microsoft Fix It and I get a message that the firewall isn't running or stopped and it can't be fixed.

I have gone into services as an administrator to try and start Windows Firewall...it isn't there - not in the list of services (local)

I also used SlimDrivers to update all the drivers on the computer.

Originally my friend sent this to me because he was not able to connect to the internet. He lives out of state, so I was not able to see the problem at his location. I am currently not having any connection issues, however, Zone Alarm Update errors and Norton Security Scan installer errors and does not install. I ran multiple scans with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Emsisoft, and Hitman Pro. All of these produced similar results. I removed the hard drive and attached it to another computer running Avast and another running ZA, nothing to note from either scan. I have uninstalled and reinstalled ZA and still cannot get it to update and Norton Security scan will not install. I am thinking that there is something I cannot find. Thanks in advance for your help.

During Windows backup, which wants to backup the 'C' drive and my games drive 'E' (for some reason), I get the following error message after the 'C' backup has completed but not the 'E':

'The backup operation that started at '‎2015‎-‎12‎-‎20T06:00:25.459859400Z' has failed with following error code '0x8078012D' (The operation failed due to a device error encountered with either the source or the destination. If the source or destination volume is on a disk, run CHKDSK /R on the source or destination volume, and then retry the operation.). Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.'

I ran CHKDSK \R and received several errors of the type: 'A disk read error occurred 0000185. The disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file xxxxxx of name xxxxxx.'

My 'E' drive is 2TB with 205GB free. I really don't believe that the cluster(s) in error are bigger than 205G, but what do I know?

Anyone have experience with this problem?

I am having a frustrating problem with Windows Vista installer. It's error code 641. I have two pc's in my house with Vista, so I've got twice the problems. I can run some updates, but others I can't, including one for Silverlight. Also, I can't update iTunes, it bombs out. Please, if anyone knows how to fix this, let us all know. BTW, I purchased a reg fix program for $29.00 that led me to believe it would fix error code 641, but it didn't. Boy, I got better things to do on a Saturday morning than mess around with this. I'm not very technical, so I get a little nervous messing with registry, etc. SOS! HELP!

Have searched as much as I know how, even bought programs that garunteed the error code could be fixed to no avail. How do I get the Windows Installsheild updated OR how do I get the problem with error code 1720 fixed so that I can load my program? ---Thanks

A:Win 7 Installer error code 1720

You should already have the latest version of the Installer.

You need to tell us more about when this fault occurs -- is it with all installs, or only just one. The message is of the type that usually points to an issue with a particular install package. Perhaps it is the wrong version

You may also wish to enable installer logging.


After enabling logging, locate the installer log created after an install failure by running %temp%. Search for and open the most recent "msi" log. (see screenshot). Upload that here as an attached file.

I've had this problem for as long as I can remember, not sure why it's happening, but I've been unable to install certain programs(mostly games) because of a windows installer error message. I've gone to lengths to try and repair it using the Microsoft Fix-it, and other methods, but all of them don't work.

I saw a previous thread with the same problem, but it was more easily solved. I believe mine is much more complex, as I've tried that solution, and it doesn't work.

Open cmd, SFC /SCANNOW. I've included the logs, and as you can see, lots of corrupted files =[

A:[Win7] Windows Installer Error

Hey Bojango,

Do you keep your updates regular and antivirus running?

There can be many reasons why your files are corrupted missing including but not limited to; malicious software, Bad install, accidental alteration or deletion and much more..

Has this always been an Issue if so its very possible you installed the OS in a corrupted state. ether way Windows being a very restricted operating system in terms of alterations possible your best bet is to do a fresh install.

I will be happy to help you with any questions you may have in relation to backing up pre-existing files and installing a new Operating system.

Best Wishes

Hello, firstly I would like to say thank you in advance for any help that can be given. Also I would like to state that I am new to dealing with technical computer problems and may often not understand some of the jargon presented. All my current information on this matter has come through google research.

The main issue I first noticed was that mysteriously, about a quarter of the programmes on my laptop has mysteriously uninstalled themselves. A few examples were the pre-loaded acer programmes, some itunes products, a couple of games, and scarily AVG Antivirus, along with quite a few others.
A few of these programmes reinstalled fine, such as AVG, but when it came to attempting to reinstall itunes I came across with this error message:
Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor.

As recommended on the itunes support forums i attempted to remove all programmes affiliated with itunes before trying to reinstall, but i received this same error code while trying to uninstall one of the programmes. So this was not solved.
I then researched more and performed an SFC scan (not entirely sure what this is), and got the report of "Windows Resources Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them". I followed the command to the CBS log, but got stuck there due to lack of understanding.

Things like this do not just happen. I know that it is a virus or something that you did. Think back, add any software, try to experiement with the computer etc?

I took on a basket case for a friend. Machine hadnt booted for months. I got it running in normal mode after it churned for 2 hours and found outdated Norton Internet security and AVG running. Unable to uninstall them using uninstall, so got in registry and deleted all mentions of AVG, Norton and Symantec. Managed to download and install Windows updates and SP 3 for XP as well as IE 8. Tried to install Microsoft security essentials but it won't install. Ran Malware bytes which found about 15 threats which I let it delete. I then installed while online Avast! and it seems to run.Tried to install Word viewer, got error message, then ran Malwarebytes again, one more threat found. Now only boots in safe mode with networking, so tried installingword viewer again, same error (install failed). IE now won't start.
I think I must have accidentally deleted something I need while going through registry deleting Norton stuff. I tried System File Checker but it wanted original install CD to proceed and I don't have it.
I have tried running Combofix in safe mode without letting it fix anything just for info, but Combofix won't get past the opening autoscan screen. I tried letting it run for two hours, but no scanning takes place.
Any hope other than complete system restore and loss of owner's data?

A:Boots only in safe mode, windows installer fails, IE fails

Sounds to me as if a clean install is a good idea...after moving valued data files to safety.
I would move files simply by connecting the drive as a slave to a different system...and moving the files considered valuable.
When friends bring me their infected systems, that's usually the quickest/surest method that I use to ensure that they have a working system that is free of malware.

I'm attempting to install windows to a 40GB SSD and I continuously receive the error 0x80070570. My first thought when I got the error was that it could have been an issue with the file itself. So I redownloaded it and still got the same error and from there I've tried nearly everything listed in other threads relating to this issue. Here's a synopsis of everything I've done thus far.

Removed old hardware, replaced with new mobo, cpu and gfx card
Downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium from microsoftstore.com
Using the Microsoft supplied tool I created a bootable USB flash drive with the ISO
Powered the new hardware on for the first time resulting in a clean boot with zero errors
Booted to Win7 install, ended up with Error 0x80070570
Redownloaded the ISO, Remounted it on the flash drive
Attempted install, still errored
Repeatedly attempted the install sometimes resulting in a freeze of the installer but usually the same error message
Tried installing on my other SSD
Cleaned and reseated RAM and Slots
Did a secure wipe of both SSDs and retried install on both
Attempted install with the ISO burned on a DVD using low speed...same error
Tried reburning multiple times with the same error each time
Ran 5 passes of memtest on both ram sticks in all possible configurations. 0 errors

After all of these steps I still cannot complete an installation. The install errors out at different points of the "expanding" step each time.

There should be a MD5 checksum (or similar) on the MS site that you can use to check the download to make sure it's okay.

Do you have an old SATA or ISE drive you try in this computer, see if that works?
Also, check your BIOS Setup, make sure it's not setup for RAID, make it AHCI if possible.

Hello, My T470 is hanging when attempting to boot. It hangs on the "Lenovo" screen and  then eventually enters "Boot Menu". I ran the lenovo diagnostics and it threw an error code: START TESTS 20181124T213405UTC START STORAGE_READ_TEST 20181124T213410UTC STOP STORAGE_READ_TEST FAILED 5 S STOP TESTS UHD020020-UN7W0I --- STORAGE FINAL_EXECUTION  FINAL_RESULT_CODE U1THPBDV2-ZD1LE2 Does anyone know what this means? This is on an SSD. Any chance of data recovery? I have no idea where to find information on this error code and no idea how to contact lenovo for information/tech support (all contact pages just seem to be pointers to resources, these forums or order support).  My machine is out of warranty (standard 1 year, purchased ~1.5 years ago) but I did buy with amex with plan that it would cover me for an extra year. Does anyone have experience with this process? What information I would need to get to have amex cover the repairs.  Thanks!Ben

After failing twice, I read and followed the directions MS posts for this error code: (1) download and extract subinacl.exe and (2) create/run as admin the reset.cmd batch file, as instructed. Reset.cmd ran as expected. Additional attempt to install update failed with the same error. I have hidden the update for now.

Note: The parameters of this error do not fit. I am Admin and logging in as such. Also logged in using super administrator account. Firewall is not obstructing. Updates are set correctly. Also, please do not bother suggesting running SFC.exe.

Running Win 8.1 Pro 64bit and I have been trying for over 2 weeks to install KB3008923 - tried 8-10 times. Everything seems successful until the restart and then at 67% complete it bombs out and undoes everything. Have tried downloading and running manually (same results) and have tried the Windows Update Diagnostic Tool. The diagnostic tool finds several errors and says they are "fixed" but it lies. I can run the diagnostic several times - either restarting between times or not) and it still finds and "fixes" these same errors. And no luck getting 3008923 to take either before or after "fixes" and restart.
Error Code for the Update is 800F0922 and I've attempted fixes outlined for it including resizing the System Reserved Partition in case it was too small. Still no joy.
Running Norton Internet Security so don't know if it's got something locked out or not. I am logged in as an Administrator, so I assume that the Diagnostic and Updates run at sufficiently elevated privileges so I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be much appreciated.

After a week waiting for reply, I guess I'm the only one so afflicted, so guess I'll have to install an old system image, see if it'll update and start arguing with Microsoft about why I'm having to reinstall Microsoft Office 2013 (downloaded product) within a month of initial installation.
