impossible instal of seven

Q: impossible instal of seven

Hello,

First i'm french, so sorry for my bad words or setences.

I use a acer computer with vista sp1. I've got 3 parts on my hdd.
That is to say an eisa part for recovery, second part C: for vista premium and a third one for datas.

I've downloaded seven on the microsoft website and burn it with nero 7 and imagburn.

Noone works correctly, the best is that one i've burned with imagburn. speed 2.4 on an rw and 4 with an r

Each time i try to install seven, i've got the install page, i press "' install now"', and i received that beautifull message ..

"' windows couldt not collect information ( for os image ) in the specefied image files ( install.wim ) does not exist "'

I've checked my iso disc and the "' install.wim "' really exist on the dvd.

An other detail, each time after pressing "' install now "' and before the beautiful message my floppy tries to run.

If you have ideas or tips, they are welcome.

Sincerely yours,
Labougie,

Preferred Solution: impossible instal of seven

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: impossible instal of seven

It is probably your installation media causing the problem..

This happens when it cannot verify the install.wim image on the DVD.

Try changing DVD discs brand, or using an external DVD rom drive. Perhaps yours is failing. If anything else fails, try installing from a USB stick.

Finding it impossible to instal Security Update for Microsoft Works 9 (KB2680317) from WIndows Update

Details
Download size: 2.1 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Important

A security vulnerability exists in Microsoft Works 9 that could allow arbitrary code to run when a maliciously modified file is opened. This update resolves that vulnerability.

I get error code 646
All other updates are installing successfully - have also run the Windows Update "fixit" which is the only available "help" from MS but makes no difference. Anyone else got the same problem ? I don't routinely open any files unless I am sure of their provenance so I'm not overly concerned - it's just annoying to have constant update failures on this one. Not even sure I have Works 9 ...although obviously it thinks I do ....

I am having trouble installing spy bot. Whenever I start the setup, it just automatically stops. One more problem is that whenever I EVEN go to a site to download spy bot, the browser is closes itself. this started happening AFTER i was able to download spy bot on my computre from the CNET site. I thought there was something missing thats why it was aborting the installation. But when I went to ANY download site for the Spy Bot, the explorer started closing itself.

And also, my home page is always set to " about:blank ". I don't know what the heck is going on.

I have a 2 1/2 year old Dell XPS 400. It didn't come with an XP reinstal CD, it said this is all built in.
When I try and set up the FAX (says Rockwell FAX/DATA V90 BVRP) it asks for the WinXP installation CD. I think the instal files/drivers are in the i386 file? I point the FAX installation to this and it says what it needs isn't there.
I don't know if it has anything to do with the All in One I am using for faxing (ILexmark X1185) I don't fax often, and mainly if someone asks me if I can (for them) I can send faxes using the Lexmark program, but not sure about getting them, so I'd like to have the Fax tool that comes with Windows working.
When I had a Win98 computer, it came with Ring Central Fax and I got that set up so it worked good (to send and receive faxes) but now I have WINXP and a differnt model printer.
Is there a way I can find (Ior maybe download) the file it needs that I don't have because of not having the WinXP instal CD?
I've asked this other places and gotten complicated answers, including I should call DELL and buy (or make them send me) an installation CD!
I just want to set up the fax in the easiest way.
Thanks,
Carrie

I have just had to replace the hard drive in my PC. I have reinstalled XP home, service pack 3. It all seems to work fine except the audio. all sound plays fine for a minute or so and then distorts for about 10 seconds and carries on distorting every minute or so. when i shut down the windows 'jingle' is garbled. I have updated drivers but it has made no difference. the sound was fine previously. i have googled around but cant find a solution that works, or one that someone not overly computer savvy can understand. I dont think its a speaker problem as the sound also distorts through headphones.

is this a common/fixable issue?

A:new XP instal

Try the MS FixIt, http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/ .

As a general suggestion, I'm going to suggest that the collection of MS FixIt tools be tried for many commonly reported system problems. If nothing else, it may help define where the problem lies.

Hi,

I have a Dell PC that I bought 2 years ago. It has a SATA hard drive. I want to clean the whole computer down, format the hard drive nad start from scratch, however I am having problems. The problem is when I get my computer to boot from the Windows CD at startup it doesn't find the hard drive becuase it doesn't have the right driver. I have downloaded the correct driver from the Dell website but since I don't have a floppy drive I can't get it to regonise it off te USB pen that I have. Is there a way I can put the file onto the Windows CD so it loads it as part of the starup procedure?

Sorry if this is in the wrong area.
I have a Compaq Evo SFF D500 pc, I needed to upgrade the hard drive so decided to use the 400gb drive that I've been using as my external drive for a year or so with no problems.
Anyway popped the drive in, changed boot order in bios to cd rom first and tried to boot from my genuine xp disk, trouble is didnt want to boot up.
Here is what I have done to try and remedy the situation.
Changed cd rom drive, no difference.
Ran a disk check on the hard drive using my laptop. No errors.
Downloaded the 6 start up floppy disks from Microsoft using laptop. When put in the Compaq after changing bios to boot from diskette get error message. Boot I/o error or something like that......cant remember as I am at wotk at the moment.
changed diskette drive. No difference, still getting error message.
Dunno what to do now??
Any ideas??

A:XP Instal

Lets start with the CD. What did it do when you say it didn't want to boot up? Did it just try to move to the next boot device? What is the condition of the CD? It may be damaged or dirty.

As per the floppy disks, there may have been a problem copying the files.

Try getting your boot disks from here: http://www.bootdisk.com/

My son has given me his old computer but am having trouble doing a clean instal.
I don't need to save any programs or back up any files.
The software is XP pro (OEM) - Version 2002 - with service pack 3
I don't have the original disc but do have an older version of the XP pro.
I can't reinstal as it tells me that the software on the computer is newer than on the disc.
When I try a clean instal, at the prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" it ignores

You should refrain from posting a DDS log in this area of the forumsSome types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first

Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys. ~ Courtesy of boopmePlease download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.

Until recently, I was running 32bit Vista. Last week, I installed 32bit Win7 (7100 build).
That worked fine but then I decided I'd like to install 64bit Win7. I don't use torrents so I made an installation disk from 17 Rapidshare files provided on another (reputable) forum. This was the 7127 build of Win7 x64. When I inserted the disk and clicked 'run', I got an error message. A similar message came up when I went into the folders on the DVD drive and clicked 'setup.exe'. The two messages are attached.

I went into BIOS thinking I might be able to boot from DVD drive but, even with DVD selected as first boot option, I got the usual choice of Vista or Win7 (I haven't deleted Vista yet).


What am I doing wrong? Many thanks.

A:Can't instal x64 (but did x86 just fine...)

It looks like Seven thinks you're trying to "upgrade" from your current 32-bit install to a 64-bit install -- which you can't do. You can only do a clean install.

I tried it, decided not to buy, and went to uninstal it. In doing so I discovered that there is no 'Remove' button shown on the 'Add Remove programs' page. Only the words 'Used' and 'Rarely'. That's new to me. Other programs have the 'Remove' button shown and it works for them. I tried reinstalling my old 2007 version and that wont instal but pops up a message instead saying 'A newer version of this program already exists'. I'm lost. I cant uninstal one or instal the other and neither program works. Files with the extension .rar do not show the 'Rar' icon.

Are you saying this happens when you try to install applications on your computer, or when you try to run already installed applications ? 
 
Commercial software that comes on a CD or DVD will normally trigger the 'Autorun' function and clicking on 'Run setup' will normally start the install process running. Software that you download may come as a .ZIP type file or as either a .EXE or .MSI type file. Once you have un-zipped the .ZIP file you will find one of these others inside it. You can then install it in at least two different ways. One, use Windows Explorer to browse to to wherever the downloaded software is and double click on the .MSI or .EXE or 'setup.exe' file which is included with the software. The other is to use the 'Run' command on the start panel and essentially do the same thing.
 
If the problem is with getting installed software to run for you, this is usually due to a faulty icon on your desktop. First step - delete the icon. Second step - create a new one. The easiest way to do this is from the start menu. Let's take MS Word as an example. Click in turn :
 
'Start / Programs / MS Office' .  You will now see MS Word. RIGHT click on Word and a small menu will appear. Roughly in the middle of it you will see 'Send to . . '.

this laptop i have, i received no cds with it. If i had the vista cd's is it possible to boot the vista cd, and instal that over what i have now? I had a nasty virus and i would like to try this if it is possible. please help. the original problem can be found here: original issue with virus and blue screen.

A:Vista instal over xp

hi,,,, i would not bother installing vista on an xp machine,,,, apart from needing a vista product key there will be lots of driver issues with it if you do,,,, you need to get your hands on an xp disc and do a clean install using that disc and the product key on the bottom of the laptop,,,
good luck.

alright guys, i have a long and lengthy story to tell but i will abridge it as well as i can. a few nights ago, there were power surges around my house and that is when ( i think) the problem started. the next day, when ever i turned on my system, it would immediatley go bsod on me and it had a code that was something like: stop:0x0000002 etc. as of now, i have tried starting safe mode and all of that and it didnt wor, so i have now removed the hard drive, used an external usb hard drive carse to connect it to my laptop, and the laptop can read it. now comes the interesting roblem. whenever i click on the hard drive in "my computer" and after about a minute of nothingness, i get a popup saying that i cant open or read the hd cus the directory is corrupted or unreadable. it looks pretty bleak right now... is there any kind of backdoor or something i can use to extract my important files ? this hard drive has files, and documents in it that could cost me and my company thousands of dollars if lost. at the moment, i am borderline suicidal, and i really need some help fixxing my comp, or at the very least, getting at my documents, and also about a thousand dollards worth of i tunes songs
so, uh if u cud help it would be greatl appreciated! tks in advanced

ps, after posting this, i checked the admins request to be specific in title and other things, and i realized i broke most of his requests, just in case i upset any1 by doing so, i am sorry

A:Parallel Instal Of Xp Help Need

You said you could access it when you connected it to the laptop as an external drive.

Backup the data!

Once you have accomplished that, reinstall it back in the original computer and try to boot it.
If/when that isn't successful see if you can boot into safe mode with command prompt.

If you can:
Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt
1. Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.
2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.
3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.
If the above is not possible try booting to safe mode and choosing "Last Known Good Configuration".

One of the two fixes above should be successful, but if not we can try a repair install of XP.

Do you have a Windows XP installation cd and if so, is it Sp2? Is the installation of XP on your computer updated to or did it come with SP2?

Hi,
I checked the archives but could not find reference to my specific situation.

I have bought a new copy of Win XP pro to instal on an used Toshiba I have purchased.
The laptop currently has Win XP pro installed in the name of the previous owner.
When I did an update of the OS I got a warning from the windows site that the OS was not genuine. The previous owner assured me it was so I concluded his registration details must be held at the update site fair enough hence I bought my own copy just to be sure.

So now I want to instal my own copy with my details and rego.
Should I do a full installation or just a repair? I have some of my own files and software on the laptop...should I back up everything or is win xp pro smart enough to know what to keep?
