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.)

@ptheodoulou4abc? You need to partition the drive into one whole drive. You can use any free partition tool on-line. http://download.cnet.com/MiniTool-Partition-Wizard-Free-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html REO

Hi there,
I did a search on google and through these forums search function but all I can seem to find are topics about vista and backing up problems. I did find a link to a microsoft hotfix for my problem, but it was only for specifically 4GB+ of Ram and an nVidia USB EHCI. Sadly I do not meet these specs.

The problem started with copying a bunch of files over from one external HDD to another (friend's to mine). It froze about half way through and locked up my whole computer. This had happened once (I think, maybe twice?) befor when copying files from my C drive over to my external, and turning my PC off/on again sorted it out.
Since then my external is experiancing a host of problems. It doesn't shut off if you unplug it from the computer or turn the computer off, it's always whirring. It's greyed out if you go to safely remove hardware. Opening a media file in anything gives an error (eg. VLC gives this error):
File reading failed: VLC could not open the file "E:\Insert File Here".
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'E:\Insert File Here'. Check the log for details.Click to expand...

Upon trying to copy anything to or from the HDD and trying to move/delete any files, it gives me the old error in the topic title: 0x8007045D I/O device error.

I expect one solution is to completely re-format my external HDD, but I can't stress how much I REALLY don't want to do that without being able to get mos... Read more

Hey guys, I posted a thread a while back. Once I rip my music into windows media player, what I would normally do is drag the mp3s into my mp3 player and they would copy over fine. Its not the case with Vista 64. It sometimes copys the first track of an album then comes up with Error 0x8007045D This request could not be performed

I was trying to move some files from my C: drive to a micro SD (with an SD adapter into the card slots of the computer) and first the Error 0x800703EE "The volume for a file has been externally altered such that the opened file is no longer valid" showed up...after a few tries the error became 0x8007045D "The requested operation could not be performed because of an I/O device error." I tried moving the same files to a usb flashdrive, and it came up with the same errors.

I'm running on Windows Vista Home Premium. Recently, there were times when i would insert the SD adapter (with the micro SD inside) and windows explorer wouldn't respond and i've had to restart and was prompted by Windows to repair. I did that and the problem remains.

I've tried two suggestions to related problems I found online e.g. erasing all windows restore shadow copies and ensuring I have permission to the files and the problem remains.

Hi there,

I was trying to install win7 ultimate on my laptop which had winXP. It has two partitions C: (220GB) and D: (280GB), while i was doing the installation, i deleted D: and installed on C.

After the installation, i went to computer mgt to format the D as it was not listed in my computer. I noticed it had Extended partition and written on it is FREE SPACE. Well i went on with the format process but it prompted an error saying "not enough space" i don't know what this is.

I tried installing win7 again so i can format drive D but it gives me error 0x8004240f. thus i cannot go on.
Please how do i resolve this? i need the larger partition. please help me

0x8004240F I encounter this error for the very first time and it happens when I try to make a new partition to install Windows 7 on it using Windows 7 installer (not disk management!)
The harddisk has a legitimate Recovery partition of HP (which was active and primary) and another data partition.
It has 40 gb of free space. Even if I select like 1 or 10 or 20 gb it still gives 0x8004240F error.

I made several commands (after installing Windows 7) like bootrec /fixmbr /fixboot /rebuildbcd and they didn't detected the Win 7 I managed to install BUT I made it's partition in Acronis Disk Director suite.
After each restart Windows 7 wanted to start chkdsk on drive C (the Win 7 drive) automatically. Also the system thinks there is an older version of Windows but there isn't.
The partition I created with Acronis was reported Primary in acronis, BUT in Win 7 installer it was reported as logical... Currently it is reported as Extended.
Paragon partition manager reported that some partition overlaps another and this must be the key to solving the problem. But why fixboot and fixmbr didn't helped? I even tried them on the other data partition. I haven't modified the Recovery partition only made it hidden and not active.
How to check the partition table for errors and fix them so Windows 7 won't get this error?

Is there a reason you want to save the Recovery partition when you intend to Clean Install Windows 7?

If not delete all partitions as shown in steps 6-7, create new and format to try install to first partition not counting the small boot partition it makes. This is always the easiest way to install.

If that fails post back exact error message and/or what step in tutorial failure occurs.

Hi pragadheesh,

Do you have any other CD's Win XP or 2000. You could also use a linux distribution CD
Insert the said cd install up to the point of partitioning format as NTFS or delete the drive, then try again with Vista
Hope this helps

Recently, I had a problem with my laptop's harddrive(?). Whenever I ran a file, it would usually stall/lag, or freeze. May it be a song, picture, application or whatever, it takes hours to load or sometimes it just goes not responding.I can't even copy files from second to primary partition or vice versa (takes 15min to copy 30mb of files? & ends up with)

Thanks for the fast reply!

The laptop has a self diagnostic test in BIOS, so I just ran that and yeah it's failing with some error codes.

Would had drive solely cause this problem or could there be something wrong with the memory as well?

A:help on error 0x8007045d

You never mentioned what backup program you are using, that is a generic I/O error.

If it is Vista's built in backup software this may be the answer

"Happened to me too in both file backup and computer backup. I supposed MS will address in the future. For now, go to the system settings and uncheck the drives so they no longer create shadow copies (restore function in Vista). Apply the new settings to erase all existing shadow copies. Then reset by checking the boxes you unchecked. Now try to backup the whole computer again. It appears a shadow copy error is conflicting with the backup process. Once you delete all shadow copies (restore points) it will work."

It looks like this is an I/O error from what I am reading. This may be a hardware problem with your DVD drive. If you have access to an external DVD drive you might try using that and see if it works. The other suggestion I read was to create a folder on your hard drive and copy the entire contents of the Vista DVD over to your hard drive. If you receive the same error while it's copying over it's probably time to call Dell about the DVD drive.

Yesterday I got the last part (1TB HDD) for my computer and installed windows 7 without any problems. Throughout the day it worked perfectly but today there came an windows update. It shut down all my programs and went into the configuration of the update and then all of a sudden I got a blue screen. I tried the windows repair but that did not get me anywhere. Then I tried repairing with the windows CD, tried to go back to before the windows update but nothing worked. Then I tried to reformat the HDD and reinstall but now I get the error message: 0x8007045D somewhere between 1-30% when expanding files. I have tried searching the forums here and have so far been able to cross out any problems with the windows CD since it is an original and I used it the day before without any problems, I tried doing the clean all but that does not work. Can it be a problem with the HDD? would seem a bit weird since I got it yesterday and it worked perfectly fine for a day until the windows update.


PLEASE help!

Well, it could well be a hardware failure in spite of it being a new one. Just check your Hard disk with the Manufacturer's Hard Disk Diagnostic Tool. Run the complete test which may take hours.

Hello guys, I have a Dell inspiron 15r special edition and lately I've been getting problems.

My laptop today decided to crash today and encounter an infinite start up repair loop. I've decided to use the dell DataSafe restore and emergency backup to format and re-install the OS but I keep getting the same problem, I have an official windows 7 home premium disk but when I try to use that to install the OS I keep getting 0x8007045D. I tried chkdsk in the command prompt from the start up repair and it said I had 3mb total disk space..

I'm just clueless right now, can somebody help me?

A:0x8007045D error when re-installing windows 7.

Hi Doodle,

Would like to know details of the error/issue that you face while trying to restore the system back to the factory settings. What are the steps that you performed and at what stage did the restore fail? Apart from the Dell Datsafe restore, other restore options should also be listed in the Windows recovery environment. Would like to know if you tried 'System Restore' instead to see if you could boot to Windows.

'Error 0x8007045D' could point at damaged/corrupt system files. Did you try backing up the system earlier? Also share the make of Windows 7 DVD that you're trying to use. Is it Windows 32 bit or 64 bit. Is it a retail version or an OEM version that you received with the system? This may also be a disk related error; look for any scratches/dust/dirt on the media. Also share if the system was shipped with Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit Operating System?

I would also recommend running hardware diagnostics to confirm the hardware functionality: http://dell.to/17Ri00I

Do reply with the information. Will take it forward from there.

Hi, I have recently built 2 computers with the exact same hardware, but am having problems installing windows on one of them. I am trying to install windows on a Samsung 840 SSD. On the first computer Windows installed without a problem, but on the second computer I keep getting that error code. I tried a differents windows 7 disk and had the same error. Tried putting the SSD in the other working computer to install windows and got the same error.. So I figured it was the SSD and had it replaced. Just got the replacement today and am still having the same error.. So I am completely confused. I tried the SSD in the other computer with all different hardware and it just keeps failing the installation. With one Windows disk it fails at 10%, another it fails at 1%. I even tried a THIRD windows 7 disk and still had the same error! It is driving me insane. I tried clearing the cmos, resetting the bios, checking the ram, changing the ram, changing the sata cables, formatting the SSD, wiping the SSD, and again.. trying it in the other computer. Can someone please help? Is it possible that I got 2 bad SSD's in a row? Thank you for anyone who can help me out..

A:Windows 7 installation on SSD - error 0x8007045D

Update.. Switched to a different sata cable and this time the "expanding files" got to about 70% and then got a new error code: 0x80070570

I have an HP tx2627cl table notebook (swivel screen), Win 7 Home prem OS, 4GB ram and a Seagate ext HD (75GB free of 279GB) which will not allow me to backup. I get error message 0x8007045D because of "an i/o device error". I can copy files to that external HD (I, but can't use Windows Backup. I did a check disk of I:/ and got no errors. When I click on Backup to I:/, it starts, says it is creating a shadow copy, runs for a couple of minutes (about 5-6%) then I get the above error message. I have switched USP ports, and tried doing a backup from a "clean boot state" with the recommended settings--all to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello wxford and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you trying to create a System Backup Image of the OS, or are you trying to backup personal data?
Imaging is not the best or recommended method to backup personal data.
Imaging is the recommended method to backup the OS partition(s).
I'm guessing you want to create a System Backup Image.

Run a System File Check to see if any errors are found.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you already haven't, you can do a Google search for 0x8007045D and see what you find.
Here's a couple links i found that may help.
0x8007045d

Error message when you try to perform a full backup on a Windows Vista-based computer: "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error"

If you don't find a solution, you could consider trying a different program to create backup images.
Macrium Reflect has a free version that is recommended by many here on SF.
Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download
You can also get a free version of Acronis from the Seagate website.

Seagate and Western Digital have a free version of Acronis for anyone that has one of their HD's.
Macrium, Acronis, and other programs are better and much easier to use than Windows backup imho.
I use and prefer Acronis (paid) for Backup Images because I've used it for many years without issues.

hope this helps,
David

Hello,

I recently bought my Husband a new computer setup of the following:

Asus X99-A Mobo, Intel i7-5820K CPU, Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 4x4GB Ram and a Samsung 850 Evo SSD

My husband, being an IT by trade, went through the BIOS menus and started to attempt to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. He has since then been plagued by errors, majority of them being the error code 0x8007045d.

We have tried the following:

Removed all unnecessary parts (barebones minimum) to do the steps below.

Set the BIOS to Legacy, Used DVD-ROM as first in booting order, and used both the Win 7 CD as well as a USB install to no avail. We use DrivePART to format the partition/drive between each attempt, and get the error code above.

Set the BIOS to UEFI, used Rufus to create a bootable Win 7 install drive with UEFI enabled. With this we either cannot find the drive, or sometimes it'll give us the same error.

With UEFI, we were successful in installing Windows -once-, however upon loading drivers for the motherboard, windows crashed and since then was unstable, sending us back to redoing the process all over again.

Thinking that it may be the SSD, we put the new SSD in my computer with Samsung Magician. It said the drive was in good health. We did a secure erase on it to attempt again. We attempted to use DrivePart again to partition the drive, and same error code (using Legacy USB/DVD again)

We ran chkdisk on the SSD with no errors. The SSD allows windows 7 to install on my comp... Read more

Welcome to our forum namnomm.

Well now that is a long list of things you folks have tried.

Did you by chance make sure Secure Boot is disabled in the bios?

Their are members that do more installs in a week than I do in years. Just hang in there for more help.

Hi, I'm trying to fix my brother's Dell Inspiron N5030 because he couldn't get windows to boot after running startup repair several times.

So I made a WIN 7 bootable USB using Wintoflash, booted the usb, and ran the startup repair utility 2-3 times with no luck. Then I tried to re-install windows. When I selected his primary hard drive it had a yellow triangle by it and it said something like "drive may fail soon." I went ahead and tried the install anyway and at 5% it stopped and I received error code 0x8007045D. So I ran chkdsk, and it deleted many corrupted files, but i still get the same error code when installing.

I don't believe this error is the fault of the installer because I used the same iso, program, and flash drive to re-install windows on my laptop (which is the same exact model) without any issue. Also, after a little prodding, I found out that his laptop had a fairly hard fall right around the time that it stopped booting windows. So, after all this, I'm pretty sure the culprit is his hardrive. My question is: how can I be sure of this?

One thing to note: he had his current hard drive installed aftermarket because his original hard drive failed.

Boot into BIOS setup to see if HD is detected. If not try reinstalling, check contacts, replace if necessary.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. (If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install.) Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

So I launched my PC the other day and was greeted with a BSOD. System repair didn't work so I decided now would be a good time to install the Samsumg 840 EVO SSD that has just been sitting in my room for a while.

So I unplugged the harddrive and then plugged in the SSD, but when installing I was greeted with error code 0x8007045D.

The error appears during the "Expanding files" part of the install at around 4%, and the dialogue advises to check for missing files.

Here's all of the things I've tried:

Downloading an ISO from digital river
Microsoft's own USB boot drive software AND command prompt
Running Memtest - it came out clear
Changing from ACHI to IDE mode
Undoing all overclocking on the system
Cleaning the SSD with the command prompt
Resetting the BIOS settings to default
Disabling secure boot
Unplugging any unnecessary peripherals
Those are all the things I can think of.
Has anyone got any more ideas? It's really frustrating that I can't use my PC at all at the moment (especially with Thief about to come out - I've been excited for ages! :P)

So I'm not exactily sure when it happened? From the sounds of it, it was when installing the mircrosoft updates sometime last week?? Anywho.. I noticed when trying to run ANY troubleshooter on my Windows 7 (starter, weak I know). Wether it be a network troubleshooter, or the windows update trouble shooter.. any of them I always get one of the following errors: 0x8007045D or 0x800705B4. The further along I got, the more my comp would freeze up, NOT RESPONDING.... 5 minutes to unfreeze each action, then 2 seconds beofre it would freeze up all over again. GRR. So with my own style of troubleshooting.. System Restore... Nope. Didn't fix it. Tried the "FIX-IT" from MS website, as there were known UPDATE issues that sounded similaar. But it didn't work either. Then saw the recommended CMD, scannow thingy... But no matter how many times I try.. it always freezes at 55% even leaving it on over night. Sigh. I am pretty BLONDE when it comes to computers, anything past standard maintence is far beyond me. Please help me?!? I have a GATEWAY LT27 Netbook (manf:nov.2011, no warranty) 32bit. NO Disc drive, and it says I have Service Pack 1, I don't know if that has been updated? and that is why I am broken? Anything will help, thanks guys!

A:Troubleshooters NOT working, getting error:0x800705B4 and 0x8007045D

It sounds like your system has either corrupted Windows files (highly likely) or corrupted registry files. I would advise a repair install.

Repair Install:You will need to Repair Install Windows 7.

Steps 1-3 and 5-7 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 will help you get installation media, backup any important files (just in case), and obtain your license keys for software (just in case) and the Windows license key (you will need this key).
