T410 win7 - 64bit installation issue

Q: T410 win7 - 64bit installation issue

I have a T410 using 240gb SSD or spindle HDD, 8gb RAM. Drive tests successfully in various 3rd party apps and BIOS tool. Various sticks of RAM used, recognised by BIOS, tested OK from various tools. Updated BIOS successfully to latest available.Attempting to install MSDN Win7 Enterprise or Pro ISO (from USB - created using Windows ISO to USB tool). Boots to "Starting Windows" then halts. Also tried from DVD, halts at same point.Also tried Win8 Pro ISO from MSDN, also USB or DVD. After booting from the media, displays blue Windows flag/logo, then reboots.If I connect another random SSD from different make/model laptop with Win7 "just for the sake of testing" that copy of Window boots to desktop, I can run burn in apps, random programs, etc, no problems, no crashes, no blips or issues. I believe this suggests RAM/HDD and other hw components are functional?Driving me nuts - please share any ideas, happy to pull it apart and follow any suggestions.It has been years since i last clean installed Win7 on this unit .. I am sure it did not give me this much grief in the past!Cheers.

Preferred Solution: T410 win7 - 64bit installation issue

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.)


Don't know if anyone can help me but I'm losing the will to live.

I've got this laptop, the OS corrupted and basically failed due to a malware infection. I never had the recovery disks so I've clean installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit twice in the space of 3 days because each time, Windows Update will not work. It simply sits on checking for updates and never finishes. I've tried EVERY solution going - ive reset windows update, done all the fix it programs supplied by microsoft to no avail.

As I said, this is a totally clean install, no anti virus, no 3rd party firewall, updates attempted via both ethernet and wifi. Am I missing a driver of some sort? There are no exclamation marks or warnings in device manager?!

It's doing my head in. What am i doing wrong?!

One observation, both installs have required me to activate via phone, it wouldn't work via the internet?! Is this related in any way?
Drivers installed:

I got them off this page: http://www.toshiba.co.uk/innovation/...untry=8&page=1

Is there any that I'm missing that are important?

Thanks in advance!


A:Satellite C660 PSC0LE - Win7 64bit clean installation - update issue

Is SP1 already installed on your Windows 7 system?
If not, you could download this from here:

Otherwise I recommend you to check the MS knowledge base regarding the Windows 7 update issues.

You don’t’ use the Toshiba image and therefore this isn’t Toshiba notebook problem but system issue.

and, it getting bsod IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL

I read many thread about this, and still can't fix my problem

Best Regards,

A:BSOD after installation win7 64bit

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

I'm trying to upgrade my buddy's toshiba satellite laptop from vista32bit to win7 64bit. Windows won't let me to do the installation so I went to bios and change to boot CD-rom first. I booted the cd installation and tried to do the install process. It showed me a screen with the list of partitions on it including the recovery drive. I figured since I'm installing a new OS on there I won't need the recovery. I formatted all drives and put them back into one and here's where I said "oh f..." It says something along the lines of not able to find a HD to install it on. I rebooted the laptop thru CD again. Once the Window 7 installation screen popped up I chose Repair your computer. I tried to follow this guide tutorial 161 but in figure 4. the box is empty. I tried loading a driver that i burnt on cd but it won't recognize it. I tried running the MS-Dos to run the exe file for the driver but the run .exe doesn't even work, nothing happens. I went back and tried installing again but get stuck on Expanding files 0%. I skipped a lot of little things but if anyone need the details I'll try to fill you in... my friend's pissed...pls help

A:vista32bit to win7 64bit installation problem

ok i own a toshiba satellite l305d-s5940
you can not upgrade a 32 bit operating system to a 64 bit operating system
what you have to do is the following

make a backup of all of the data(music, pictures, etc)
then do a bios update for the unit
then wipe the hard drive out clean and install 7 with the disk that toshiba may have sent you or your own copy.
if its a disk that toshiba sent you just ignore any messages you get when doing a clean install.
then download all the drivers and do windows update. for WIN7 thers only like 30-40 updates for seven.(i just did it on a netbook)

then your all set.

A:weird installation problem (win7 ultimate 64bit)

Hello Detryoal, welcome to Seven Forums!

Where did you get the ISO/DVD you're doing the install from; how large a partition are you trying to install to?

If the Windows 7 install disk is one you burned yourself it may be a bad burn and needs to be done again, if so this would be the first thing to try.

Use the free ISO burner at the link below to burn another at a speed of now more than 4x and select to let the program to verify the disk before it finishes.

ImgBurn Free ISO Burner

Maybe you should have a look at this information below.


After you have made backups of everything you care to save and you want to do a real wipe "clean all" to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) have a look at this tutorial at the link below, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old Windows drivers, giving you the best possible space to install Windows 7 to; it goes hand-in-hand with a clean install.

Intel E2160 1.8ghz dual
2gb of RAM DDR2 5200
brand new Win 7 64 bit installation, all updates to SP1
IE 11

I upgraded my mom's computer from Vista to Win 7. It is an older machine that I bought her back in 2008 I think....I know that the RAM is on the low side, but I think there is some other sort of problem going on here.

It is like something is blocking web pages from loading....they do eventually, but browsing is very slow. Opening IE is quick as is loading up programs etc...not indicative of a "slow computer" or running out of resources.

Once IE is open it probably takes google 30-60 seconds to actually appear......but once it is up, the search is very fast like you would expect. Going into a webpage is also very slow. It is like the initial page load is slow and then searching is normal speed.

I turned off the windows firewall, but couldn't think of anything else. I noticed that the CPU usage and RAM usage are high going above 50% at times, but I found google results of people using Win 7 on even older, slower machines.

Any idea?

My system is about two years old, and over the past few months I've been getting various BSODs. It seems to me that it is related to a memory issue (or HDD?), but I have not been able to narrow it down at all.

I have tested each stick stick individually for hours with Memtest86+ but I have gotten zero errors. I also have another computer with the same specs running fine, so I do not believe it is due to incompatibility between the mobo & RAM.

I've attached the requested files and really appreciate any insight into my problem.

I have a Lenovo T410 laptop that came with Windows 7 Pro 64bit OS on it.  After a weird upgrade and some issues to Win 10, I wanted to return it to factory setup but the recovery partion is gone.  So I did a new clean install of Windows 81. Pro 64bit that I own.  It runs fine but now lacks various Lenovo utilities, and the function keys no longer work. I contacted Lenovo and was bounced from Sales to Support to 3rd Party vendor, to Support to Sales to Support.  In short, they no longer offer (have) the T410 recovery CDs. Sure I can do a bunch of manual things but.  But would like to start with a fresh clean load of Win 7 Pro 64, with the Lenovo drivers and utilities, it came with new.  Then do the various updates from that point. Does anyone have the  Lenovo T410 factory recovery CDs they no longer wish to keep, and willing to let go of ? Frolin 

A:T410 - Win 7 Pro 64bit Recovery CDs

Even if you can find recovery media, you should think about upgrading to windows 10. T410 disks are several years old.  If you are able to load an image, windows update will not run without going through a complicated set of steps.  (you can search the forum)

Hi all,

First time here. I've been reading through lots of issues and resolutions of failed boots.
I think I have a slightly unusual problem because some items aren't working.

I've disconnected all other drives and just have the primary Win7 (ultimate 64bit) drive and DVD drive connected.

The main bootable drive is a GPT drive (3TB and boots).
Issues started when I did a normal restart after seeing RAM usage was high.
Suddenly no booting into Windows - 0xc0000225 - the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

The Win7 repair disc I attempted to create from my work PC (also 64bit, but not ultimate edition) didn't work at all.
The Win7 install disc I inserted works - but the system repair options are unavailable because apparently it's a different version (SP1 through years of updates maybe?) I dunno.

Using SHIFT + F10 I get to the console, from where I've been following other posts' guidance on what to do.

If I go to DISKPART, I can find the 3 partitions on my GPT drive
Partition 1 System 100MB
Partition 2 Reserved 128MB
Partition 3 Primary 2794GB

However, after selecting partition 1 I am unable to mark it active because: "The selected disk is not a fixed MBR disk"

If I list Vol, I can see that Vol0 is the Win7 CD, Vol 1 is drive C formatted as NTFS as one would expect, but Volume 2 (Now selected due to selecting the partition 1) is listed as FAT32? This seems weird. (Also has hidden attribute)

I have a HP dv7-4073nr and it recently crashed. I ran the hard drive tests through BIOS and saw that my hard drive failed the short DST test. So i bought a new hard drive (identical to the one that failed).

After installing the new hard drive i placed a copy of Win 7 home prem. x64 onto my USB to install onto the new hard drive. I get to the "Where do you want to install WIndows?" screen and I am uable to install the OS on the hard drive.

I got the error "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

So I try to see what I can do in the BIOS... i restored the settings to default. When I try to take a look at the hard drive, I get the "3F0" error (boot device not found/hard disk not found).

I am quite confused because when I try to install Windows it shows the "Disk 0 Unallocated Space" and I can run diskpart to take a look at it too but I am still unable to install. I have tried looking at the dv7-4073nr drivers but it does not help.

Does anyone know what is wrong? I am not sure how to test if the HDD is DOA.

Hi every one,

this machine was having Windows XP 64 Bit,
and it had a lot of BSOD crashes, then i just decided that it's the time to make the move to Windows 7 for this high performance machine, since i was not able to upgrade to Windows 7 because of some applications just working on Windows XP 64 Bit, but now there is a copy of it,

Any way i'm still having those BSOD crashes,
I have replaced the SSD 500GB hard drive with another regular hard drive with no results,
tried to remove and install nVidia Driver,
tried to install a different version of that driver with no results,
tried to remove McAfee AV and installed Kaspersky Internet security 2013 also no result,

now i have grabbed all the data using SF Tool, and i really hope that u can help me with that issue.

Brand new Lenovo T410. XP Pro. The D drive is not present. When you go to the system settings in the control panel I uninstall thecd/dvd driver and then let Windows install it. It looks like its going to install properly and it installs but you get a message that windows is done installing but it didn't install properly. In the system settings you see the driver, "HL DT ST DVD ROM DU20N" but with a yellow exclamation mark. I have eliminated hardware. I took the hard drive out of the T410 shell and put it into a known good shell with a working drive. So it has to be software. I downloaded the cd/dvd driver detecting software from Lenovo's site and it did not detect the drive. Any thoughts on what could be the problem?

A:T410 DVD driver does not install properly. Yellow exclamation after installation

Same problem with the "HL - DT - ST DVD-ROM DU20N", on a T400.  The drive is not even recognized by the FWSB06 DVD firmware utility provided at http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70448. Yes, I tried uninstalling/reinstalling from Device Manager.  I have NOTphysically removed the drive. Updating the BIOS (7UUJ46US) did not help either. The Device Status on Device Manager sais: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)" Can anyone tell me how should the registry keys look like, so I can enter Regedit and fix it myself?  Or better yet, can anyone provide the actual drivers? In the mean time I will try to disable DMA at the SCSI on the windows Registry... How can I get my DVD to work?

The first two questions call Digital River about a refund and reorder. Have heard that some have had success with that. No need to un activate however if you decide to try to use that Key again then you will have to call MS and talk to them to make it work on another pc if that is your intent. Good luck to you and enjoy!

I just bought a ThinkPad T400, and 8GB DDR3 upgrade kit. After first log on, I realized the Windows 7 is 32bit. How can I upgrade to Ultimate x64 instead?

Thanks for your help.

I think you have to Wipe and reinstall. You can't go from 32bit to 64bit over the top of the 32bit.

Why is this?

Just wondering if it would be possible to backup a Win7 32bit system, install a Win7 64bit system then restore the 32bit to the 64bit system?


A:Macrium Reflect: Restore Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit?

NO -- a clean install is required to move from one to the other. IF you restore an MR backup over an install, it replaces the entire contents of the partition. So basically, you would be going back to the version that you saved to backup.

I have a new Toshiba Laptop (Win7 64bit CORE i3). I would like to run (via usb) and old hdd from my desktop which was 32bit Win7.
I have the old hard drive in a SATA enclosure and running it via USB to my laptop. When I attempt to either copy or read the old hard drive I get a write protect error. I have tried
the MS registry changes to remove "write protection" but the registry entry they call for is non existent in my laptop registry.
My last post on this was annotated as solved...but my explanation was weak. I do not want to run this drive as a permanent addition to my system, I just need to copy some files from the old drive to the new one.
If I attempt to use Control Panel/Disk Management it tells me the old drive is not "initialized". Both options to initialize don't work. Please help I have some very important medical records that must be copied from old hdd to new.

Hi all,

Hope all is well. I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S520 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 already installed and would like to upgrade it Windows 7 Ultimate.

I had already purchased a retail version for Win7 Ultimate before (the full version not the upgrade) and would like to use this for the upgrade.

I looked around the forums for some advice and found some very useful stuff but I would appreciate if someone could help with the following. My apologies if the answers were posted already. Must have missed them.

1. I read about the Windows Anytime Upgrade feature. Will AU work with the full Win7 Ultimate retail key or does it specifically work with an upgrade key?

2. If I use the AU and it is successful, will the new Win7 Ultimate key be converted to an OEM version as well? The full-version retail key I have gives me the right to install this to 3 computers. I do not want to lose this right since I may use it for different computers in the future.

3. Is it better to go for AU or a clean install of Win7?

Since I just purchased the laptop, I have no personal data or programs installed so I do not have to worry about losing data. However Toshiba has certain software installed with the laptop. My understanding of a clean install is that everything will be wiped clean and then necessary software e.g. drivers, etc... need to be installed again. On the other hand, once I upgrade to Ultimate perhaps some of this software will becom... Read more

Hi folks.

I have searched through the various threads that deal with this topic but have not seen anything that deals with this specifically.

I have a custom built computer I put together last year. I installed Win7 32bit at the time because I didn't want to bite the bullet and reinstall everything. That time has now arrived.

My computer has:

i7 Core 960 2.67GHz
8GB Ram
1TB HDD (Win7 32bit installed)

I purchased an OEM DVD of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and an Intel 180GB SSD drive.

I want to install the SSD drive on the computer and install Win7 64bit OS as a DUAL BOOT. This way I will be able to choose to migrate my applications at my own pace. As I install a 64bit version of my Photoshop CS6 for example, I will delete it in the 32bit OS once I have all my settings, brushes etc. moved over.

Should I ?

1. Install the SSD and get it recognized by the BIOS and the 32bit OS.
2. Boot from the DVD of the 64bit OS and choose the SSD as the location of the installation.
3. Reboot the computer after installation complete

and at that point I should get the dual boot screen?

The above is how I understand the process based on some tutorials I've seen for dual booting XP and Vista. Does this work for Win7 32 and Win7 64?

A:Dual Boot Win7 32bit and Win7 64bit on a second SSD drive

Easy - install the SSD and disconnect all the HDDs. Then install Win7 on the SSD and make the SSD second in the boot sequence (first should be the CD/DVD reader). Then reconnect the HDDs.

When you want to boot from your 32bit system, temporarily change the boot sequence (usually via F12 at power-on).

I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)

I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Win7 32

Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)

Now I would like to go from Win7 32bit to 64bit

When I try and run the Win7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only"
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.

I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.

Can someone help me here?


A:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

I am having trouble getting the built-in wireless adapter on this laptop to get connected to the internet. I have installed the following driver:
but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?


can we see an ipconfig /all - see how below
do a tcp/ip reset - see how below
post a screen shot of xirrus please - see how below


ipconfig /all

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the information above ... Read more

Hello - I'll try to be succinct and cover everything I have tried. I have a T410 i7 with Win 7 installed along with all the drivers.  It has been working fine but I seem to be experiencing a power issue.  This first manifested itself as the screen going blank and refusing to come back on.  Thinking it was overheating my partner opened it up and cleaned out the fan (my partner fixes Lenovos as a field engineer) and applied thermal paste to the processor.  All seemed well.I was working on it, plugged in, when suddenly it shut down.  I tried to restart it but without success so I left it plugged in (with the orange light flashing) and went off to have supper.  When I came back, the orange light was still flashing so I decided to leave it to charge overnight.Next morning - orange light still flashing and although it would power up there were odd things going on when I looked in Power Manager.  It showed the battery as being good for 35 hours (although I knew that if I took the AC adapter out it would close down).  So I tried a different known good battery - same thing.  Then a different PSU - same thing.  On the desktop, it shows as charging for half a dozen animations then goes static - Power Manager says it's charging but doesn't display the 'time left to fully charge' and isn't actually charging at all. So - here are the things I've changed and tested at each step:1)  The battery2)  The PSU (trying both 90w ...

Season's greetings to everyone. I have an interesting isssue with the power ON to my laptop and its operation via the docking station. It first started about a month ago. The only way the laptop will turn on is when it's attached to the docking station. The actual button on the laptop does not operate, the only way to turn on is via the docking station power button. I made an interesting discovery last night when I disconnected all cables, including the power cable to the docking station, attached the laptop and surprisingly I was able to turn the laptop ON. Again, via the docking station button and not the laptop button. If the laptop is already ON, and I disconnect it from the docking station then I'm able to use it normally. But, should I take a break from using it, and it goes into sleep mode and I try to re-start it, I have no success. The power light flashes slowly and no amount of pushing the button will either turn it ON nor turn it OFF. It almost feels like the button is not completing a circuit. Any help or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks to all. I'm running Windows 7 PRO

Hello, I have an issue switching on my laptop since two days ago and I am not sure if the problem is with my laptop's external battery, the motherboard or the power charger. My laptop model is on the list of laptops affected by lenovos battery recall so maybe the issue is with the battery. But then theres also this:- With the external battery in the laptop and the charger plugged in, the laptop powers up and displays "Error 0190 : Critical low battery error" and then switches off.  I looked this error up in my laptops manual and it says that I should replace the system board-The laptop also doesn't run with the charger plugged in and the battery removed, so does this mean the charger is broken as well?

I'm presently running Win7 Pro 32bit on an Intel Core2Duo 2.4Ghz 775 socket.

I've just purchased a i5 760 processor, an Intel H55 chipset Mobo, and 8GB of ram.

My copy of Win7 Pro 32bit was acquired through the college I was attending.
I have the installation disk and the license number.

When I reinstall Win7 Pro on my new set up, what do I need to do to make it a 64bit install?

I plan to use to the same installation disk and license number.

I have a legally purchased win7 Premium (32bit) CD. I purchased a new desktop that is pre-loaded with win 10 (64bit). I prefer to stay with win7.
Question 1: If I do a clean install of my win 7, will it work properly? At least until win7 support shuts down in 2020.
Question 2: Since the new computer has 64 bit architecture, is it possible to upgrade my win7 (32bit) to (64bit) using anytime upgrade?
A little info: I understand there may be a little loss in performance, but, for my purposes, that would be irrelevant. I just don't like win10.
I'm a senior on fixed income. Had to save for a full year to buy the new desktop and simply cannot afford to purchase a 64bit win7 (if it is even still available)! ...and Don't really want to go the 'pirate' route.
Any simple (layman) advice would be gratefully appreciated.
Oh, one more thing. I have made a backup of the win10...in case I have to go back to it in the future.

I have read many of the similar posts...but they were either confusing or not quite answering my specifics.
