Preferred Solution: After instalation windows 7 volume on the disk is 39 GB

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: After instalation windows 7 volume on the disk is 39 GB

Windows alone takes up around 20 GB.

As I understand it, your C drive is using 39 GB and you have about 20 programs installed.

Your system specs say you have 3 GB of RAM. Is that correct?

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management.

How large are these folders?

C:\Windows

C:\Program Files

C:\Program Files (x86)

How much space do you have devoted to System Restore?

Vista 64 sp1 available as one disk installation? I checked Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! and it seems they're selling a one disk Vista SP1. I live in Vancouver (no newegg deliveries here) and i went to a local PC shop and he said sell sp1 as separate disk and he also thinks newegg does the same. I know I can combine both disk to create on, but I rather have all in one disk.

For the here and now, it seems as though there are no plans by Microsoft to release Vista SP1 slipstreamed into the Vista installation as a standalone disk, unless you're willing to pay for a new Vista license for install media with SP1 integrated.

And slipstreaming it yourself is not as easy as it used to be with Windows XP and SP2.

Certainly, I'm hoping Microsoft DOES provide slipstreamed media (without a license) to it's existing customers, even if for a nominal fee such as S&H.

First of all hello

Yesterday I was trying to reinstall system on my friends laptop.
It's a Samsung ultrabook with 500gb hdd and 16gb ssd. It had a recovery partition with Windows 7 OEM but since she had Windows 7 Ultimate she decided to go for it instead.
After getting to installation screen of recovery I removed partitions with system .At that point i was informed that to complete this disks have to be "disengaged" or something like that - I know it's not specific description but I was kinda in a hurry . After my confirmation installer removed partitions. From here I switched to USB bootable installation of Win7 Ultimate.

At stage of disk selection I removed rest of the partitions (including the one with recovery files), created and formatted new ones, and proceeded with installation as usual. Installation proceeded up to the point of rebooting the system to finish the process, at which point issues have started.

After rebooting system didn't load as it should. Instead information of "lack of operating system" was displayed. At that point I repeated whole process again (removing partitions, creating new ones, installing the system etc.). This time I left USB stick with system installation files in laptop. It went straight to preparing new installation of operating system as if nothing was installed the last time (about 4 repetitions of whole process brought same results).

At that point I started to look closer what is going on.

On which of those 2 do you want to install Windows? 16 GB is very tiny. Is it some sort of cache drive?

General best idea is to have only 1 hard drive connected. Did you have both connected during your install attempts?

Hi, I've tried everything with this laptop to no avail, and though maybe someone here might know how to fix my problem.

Well, it started yesterday when I booted up and got the "Windows did not start successfully" message. No matter what option I picked (safe mode, start Windows normally etc.), it would go to the Windows logo and begin to load, and then quickly flash the BSOD and restart again, returning to the "Windows did not start successfully" message.

I then disabled automatic restart on system failure and this time the BSOD stayed on screen and told me that I had an "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error. I looked around on the internet, and from what I read I decided to run Chkdsk from the Recovery Console.

This is where I am stuck. I have two "Recovery CD-ROMs" instead of the Windows XP CD, because the laptop came with Windows XP preloaded, and I figured that to get to the Recovery Console I should insert one and boot the laptop. I tried both, and nothing happened (it just loaded the "Windows did not start successfully" message again).

I then loaded the CD directly by hitting Esc on start up, but the only options that came up were 1. MS-DOSwith CD-ROM support, 2. Recover Windows XP to first partition only, 3. Recover Windows XP to entire HD, and 4. Recover Windows XP to entire HD with 2 partitions.

A:[SOLVED] Unmountable boot volume error, cannot load Windows XP disk

Hello Clare

You will have to borrow a proper (full) XP installation CD from someone.
Then
Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
floppy (if present)
CD/DVDROM
Hard disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered (Press R to start the Recovery Console), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually 1).

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
chkdsk /r
enter

Type
Exit
Enter

The system would freeze even at the log in screen if I waited more the a few minutes to log on. Time is some sort of factor.

Either windows Vista needs re-installing, a Factory Recovery is required, or the hard drive is starting to fail and therefore needs replacing with a new one.

You can test the hard drive with the drive manufacturer's diagnostic software. You will need to download the DOS version which runs from a bootable CD. The download contains an ISO file for creating the CD. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

I shrunk Disk 2 so that I had unallocated space. I then extended Disk 1 using the unallocated space from Disk 2 creating spanned volume on Disk 1 (extended volume on Disk 2). It did not do what I wanted so I want to 'undo' it. Can
I just delete the spanned volume on Disk 2 (space that added to Disk 1)? Or more accurately if I'm going to delete the spanned volume on Disk 2, will it affect my users' files?

Hi,

I have received my laptop with a 250GB HDD partitioned into two primary partitions (well there is actually four with only 512MB called NVCACHE and another of 1GB as EISA Configuration). One of the partitions is a system, boot, page file ... partition containing the OS (Win Vista Home Premium and contains about 35GB space) and programs. The other is a partition for all the data (~198GB). I am now starting to run low on disk space on the OS partition (<3GB) and wanted to add some more space. I tried to use Disk Management but this did not work because there is no adjacent unallocated space on the same disk next to the OS partition. There is only space at the end of the data disk partition, which I cannot move to the OS partition (at least I do not know how).

Is there a way to increase the disk space for the OS partition? Both partitions have following set out:

Layout: Simple
Type: Basic
File System: NTFS (except for the small NVCAHE which is FAT32 and the EISA does not have any File system)
Status: Healthy

You may have to go into the Control Panel>sound and run the test since you are not seeing any yellow marked items in the device manager. Generally the volume control found on the task manager as well as configuring Windows Media Player at first to be the default player will then play the default welcome sound when first booting up.

The volume is always down low where raising that up on the taskbar as well as the audio mixer for the software if any used will show if all is well. The support site sees Vista updates available that should work on 7 as well. Lenovo Support & downloads - Home page

Could it be the power supply probllem or maybe a virus have something to do with ? BTW:I have recently added few air coolers and cleaned the dust.

Thank you for your time.

A:Computer Heating Up During Windows Instalation

53C is a little hot but still within the guidelines. If your computer doesn't get hotter then that then it would a bad Power Supply Unit. Shut down the computer, remove the side, be sure computer is clean, blow out all fans with a can of Compressed air. Look at the label for the PSU. What is the make, model# and wattage. Report in your next post. Start the computer and make sure all fans are spinning.
If the computer gets hotter then 53C then you may need to reapply Thermal Paste between the Heat Sync and the Processor.

My concern is, that after the deadline has expired, will I just be wasting all my time and effort in removing the OS 10 installation files and what can I do to ensure that that Microsoft don't repeat their download? Where will Microsoft publish 'how to remove 10 files' or will they simply delete them the same method in which they Downloaded them?

Any advise will be gratefully received?

I got the following issue and perhaps someone on this forums can be of assistance, any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated. Im currently trying to finish setting up this new computer im building but i keep running into the following error. Once assembled the BIOS comes up, tells me everything is fine. Recognizes all of my peripherals and everything and i proceed to my windows xp installation.

The setup loads and goes to the part when im asked to press F8 to accept the microsoft agreement. At this point it just either restarts, freezes or blue screen. Ive tried 2 boards (same model) 2 cpus (same brand/model) 4 different video cards and like 8 different HDDs. Ive tried with countless versions of windows and it just does the same. The boards is a eVGA nForce4 SLI edition 775 socket. Basicly ive tried different components but different memory sims. I currently do not possess a manual for the board but the memory im trying atm are 2GB PC2-5300.

I have tried with them both on, one at a time, everything. Could it be perhaps a frequency issue my problem? Or what else could it be?

I formatted a 40 Gb hard drive on a computer w/ an Intel P4 which has AMIBIOS and then I attempted to install Windows XP Pro on the computer and each time setup installation gets to the point where it is going to start the actual installation process the keyboard stops responding so you can't hit enter to continue or R to repair, on the times that I have gotten pass this step the keyboard locks again. Is there anyway to get Windows XP installed?

Hi Charlie,

Have you tried another keyboard to see if that was the problem? Also, have you made sure to try a PS/2 keyboard and not a USB keyboard?

Does your keyboard light up at all when you try to use it?

Hi everyone, from yesterday i am having multiple BSOD in my newly installed windows 7. I installed windows around 10 days ago and its not running many software. I used connectify software for few days when this BSOD started i uninstalled connectify but still after running half hour or so the laptop freezes and sometime results in BSOD. Sometime i just power off the laptop by pressing the power button. Also i should mention my laptop become slightly hot to the touch during this time. I am not sure what is causing this problem. Is it a software conflict issue or is it a heat related issue or is it a internal hardware related issue because just before freezing the laptop starts to make some click click sound. Please help. I have attached the report of dm log collector.

Regards
Gautam

There are no .dmp files to analyse. Clicking noises are usually a sign of a disk problem. Test using the SHORT test in SeaTools for DOS:

Did the laptop come with Windows 7 pre-installed on it?

Hello all, Im not too computer savvy, and I dont know everything about computers, you could call me a noob. I recently downloaded a version of windows xp and burnt it to a disc and have been trying to install it. However, during setup, my laptop just dies. It wont turn on for a few minutes either. I had another copy of xp so luckily I was able to install something on my laptop, but the only problem is, the product keys I have for this version arent working and I have 30 days to activate it. I dont think its my computer because if it was, it wouldnt install the other copy of xp. It just wont work with the burned copy of it. Did I burn it wrong? Help me please? I have a Compaq presario v6000, it came with vista, but I got so damn sick of that.
 

A:Computer crashes during instalation of Windows XP?

If your other copy worked it sounds like you downloaded a faulty copy or have a scratch on the burned disk.

Otherwise I would guess the memory but bootleg copies usually cannot be trusted to work like you expect.

So i have a new SSD Corsair Force 3 240 gig and all I want to do is install Windows 7 Pro on it. This board does not support parted magic (cannot wake from sleep and there are no onboard video to wake up to) so ive resorted to clean all.

I have not been able to successfully boot the OS on the SSD. I never intended on setting up raid but apparently all the literature i see is on raid.
I created a USB install disk as reccomended onto a 8gig ntfs primary active
did the bootsect /nt60 X: and it successfully worked
copied the cd over to the flash drive and copied the rste drivers in a folder called drivers
My SSD is installed on port 1 6gig sata intel (as this board doesnt have marvel apparrently)
My DVD is installed on 3gig Sata port 6
I set up Raid in the bios as reccomended by others (as this is the only way to install ssd?). Nothing UEFI is enabled
There are no other drives hooked up to the computer. Just SSD, USB cordless mouse, keyboard and no network cord or WIFI
i started with a clean ssd as reccomended
my bios recognized the ssd on post
i booted into the win 7 install (MBR not uefi)
i loaded the 64 bit rste drivers from asus as reccomended by others
i left the machine to install
the usb then booted into windows install (for whatever reason)
i pushed f8 to boot my corsair
windows brings up an error on a black screen

A:Asus p9x79 ssd installation with new instalation of windows 7 pro

I suggest that you set the SATA controller to AHCI mode. You won't need any drivers other than those included with the Win7 installer to install Windows to the SSD.

It's what I did with my P9X79 Pro.

What gave you the idea that you'd need RAID drivers? (The Intel RSTe package includes AHCI driver, but they seemed to give worse performance than the Windows ones, at least with my hardware.)

He everybody,

I've got a problem.

I got an old pc and once every 6 months i re- instal my windows 7 to keep it up speed.

And if i try to instal windows it starts unpacking till 5% and then i get a message not able to instal code: 8007045d.

I got no clue what to do now.

Please help!

Greeting simon

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals, boot the Win7 DVD, follow these steps to get a Perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

The bootmgr error is because the DVD is not booting and it is trying to start the empty HD. Make sure DVD drive is set to boot first in BIOS setup, or use the one-time BIOS Boot menu key to trigger it at boot.

Hi, I want to know how do I recover my previous Windows 10 instalation (with windows product key) after formatting my laptop and installing other OS. Thanks  

A:Lenovo u31 format recover Windows 10 instalation

Hi Sereno1980
 
While formatting your laptop, did you delete LENOVO recovery partition? If no, you could still recovery with Lenovo OneKey Recovery.If yes, you may need to download Windows 10 ISO and install it manually with the product key underneath the laptop.

i already have my pc updated with windows 10, i recently upgraded my hard drive with a samsung 850 pro ssd but i discovered that my recovery partition no longer works and when i try to do a system image windows says it cannot do it because files are missing . i used the samsung data migration software that came with my ssd, when i go to disk management it shows my three partitions which are

500mb recovery partition

260mb efi system partition

windows c 476.18 gb ntfs , boot,page file, crash dump, primary partition

my question is if i do a clean instal of windows 10 will these partitions be created again during the windows 10 installation automatically or will i loose some . i'm no computer expert so i don't know which ones i really need . i want to be able to recover my pc should i need to and have everything working . someone suggested that i dont need a recovery partition and windows 10 does not create new partitions . i don't know what the efi system partition is and don't know if i need it . i have watched some youtube videos of people doing clean installs of windows 10 and they all seem to differ . during installation when given the choice of where to install windows some people delete all the partitions on their hard drive while others pick which one . can anyone give me a guide and bear in mind i am no expert , which partitions do i really need , my pc came with the 3 partitions listed above, any help would be much appreciated

A:what partitions does windows automatically create during instalation

Windows will create 4 partitions:
450MB Recovery100MB EFI System (Hidden from disk management)16MB MSRThe rest is your C: Drive
