Preferred Solution: Impossible boot in other SO via USB

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.)

Hello, i have changed my old HDD to a SSD(Kingston hyperX fury 240GB, controller SandForceŽ SF-2281). I have tried to install windows 7, windows 10 and debian but i have always the same problem, when the install reboot to finish it, it impossible to boot from the SSD. My opinion is the controller is incompatible with my pc(HP pavilion dv6-7045ez). I have found crucial.com which say all ssd compatible with dv6-7XXX series(http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP-Compaq/pavilion-dv6-7xxx-series-%28intel-ddr...). Can i trust it? Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english, it's not my native langage.

I cannot boot in either safe or normal mode. When attempting to boot in safe mode, the drivers will load, I wait, the screen goes black & I get the words "safe Mode" in all 4 corners, the cursor moves, but nothing else. Sometimes I simply get a blue screen with a moveable curor. When running a diagnostic I get "boot manager is corrupt or missing". I cannot run system restore. I have the Vista 64 recovery disks from HP , but the computer will not boot from them (the choice to boot from the cd never appears); however, the computer will run the Vista 64 recovery disk I got from the internet, but it cannot find an operating system to repair. I have one 200gb hard drive, however when I run chkdsk, it calls the drive X & says there is only 3 gb there. One more thing, while booting I noticed the opportunity to go into the raid utility by pushing crtl N. I never put raid on my computer & there is no evidence of it in the boot consol. The computer is an HP Pavilion with an AMD Quad core processor runing windows 64, 6gb of ram, 200 gb hard drive. Of course I do not want to do a clean install of windows because I have a great deal on my HD I do not want to loose. Thank you in advance for your help!!

Hello everyone, Here is my issue. I just got a deal on a brand new HP Probook 450 G3 that came with a 1To HDD and Windows 10 pre-installed. I used the spare money to purchase an Windows 7 Pro x64 license and a Sandisk 256Gb SSD. My intention was to pull the original HDD out and do a clean install of Windows 7 on the SSD. I have gone absolutely bonkers after 72 hours of trying... Sorry in advance if I state the obvious or if I do not use the right wording. I know a little but am definitely not a wiz. So here goes.  PROBLEM 1: Impossible to Enable Secure Boot and Install Windows 7 I unplugged the HDD and swapped it with the SSD. Using Rufus, I created a bootable USB stick formatted as Fat32 and partitioned as GPT since my Bios defaults to UEFI. I stuck the USB device in the computer, went to F10 - BIOS Setup. My BIOS is version N78 Ver. 1.06 12/18/2015 (latest). The USB device is properly recognized as a UEFI device. In BIOS Setup  >>  Advanced  >>  Secure Boot Configuration, I switched to Legacy Support Enable and Secure Boot Disable then Save. In Boot Options, I unchecked Fast Boot. Below, UEFI Boot Order is greyed out and cannot be unchecked. Only the device booting order can be tweaked so I ranked the USB device first. Below, Legacy Boot Order is greyed out and cannot be unchecked. Instead of a device list as with UEFI Boot Order, the following sentence is written: "Enable Legacy Boot, Save Settings & Ex...

A:Impossible to Disable Secure Boot

The simplest method is to use a SATA to usb adapter and a  cloning utility. I have an Apricorn adapter and Acorn cloning utility that was delivered with a Crucial SSD I purchased as a migration kit.  Other great cloning utilities are Paragon software's  Migrate OS to SSD. Using this method takes about 30 minutes or therabouts. If you prep the SSD with the Diskpart utility you should be able to use the recovery media to install the operating system. Once the SSD has been cleaned, a partition created, has been formatted ,  and been made active  then there shouldn'd be an issue using it as the primary disk in a notebook.

So recently, after trying out the Windows 7 RC 32-bit for a couple of months, I decided to try to install normal Windows 7 64-bit as a fresh clean install. Upon installing Windows 7 64-bit, everything went smoothly and entered the desktop. However, after being in the desktop for 5 seconds, the computer restarted itself and then went into system recovery. Finding this strange, I loaded up the installation disc and tried to repair the OS to see if there were any problems, but it found none. While still being in the disc installation screen, I tried to reformat and install Windows 7 32-bit instead, thinking it was a 64-bit problem. However, it did the exact same thing the 64-bit installation did.

Thinking that Windows 7 might have been a problem, I decided to go back to Vista so I could at least have an OS on my computer. I used System recovery to revert back to the OS that is defaulted on my computer (Vista 32-bit Home Premium with bloatware) and tried to go to 64-bit on that. However, this also yielded the same problem and did the same when I tried to fresh install 32-bit as well.

I'm currently running off the backup that came off my computer from Gateway, but I'm seriously confused as to why I cannot install any OS on my computer whatsoever, when I've clearly reformatted Vista 32-bit in the past. I haven't tried upgrading to the Windows 7 RC again, because I've already spent 4 days reformatting, re-installing, and trying multiple things I've f... Read more

Hello,

My Toshiba Satellite U400 wasn't working well at all (very slow) because of an old and infested installation of Windos Vista. I formatted with a live-cd of GParted, in order to install a new version of Windows.

But since I formatted it, I can't even boot on a CD (I checked of course the priority boot option in the BIOS)... I tried with others live-cd (linux ones) to check if the problem was from my CD and not my computer... Well, it seems that it comes from my computer.

After long hours of searching, I found out that there was a restoration partition set by Toshiba, and I probably erased it, but I don't see how it could affect the boot options.

Any suggestions ? I'm starting to be desesperate

Have a good day,
Cheers

Hi all,
I have a laptop with pre-installed Win8x64 and wanted to try dual booting with an additional Win7x64 VHD install (on a single physical disk), in order to challenge performances.

Everything ran quite fine (repartitioning, VHD attachment, install). But, at bootup-time, though I got the blue modern boot wizard raising with my two OS entries, I only can regularly boot on Windows 8. Any attempt on booting Windows 7 leads to Windows 8's "preparing restore..." screen and I'm back to some WinPE-style assistant that allows me to boot on Windows 8, or reboot the laptop...

I tried using Boyans' DualBoot repair tool with no luck. Only get a cryptic (to me) error message that somebody (himself? ^^) is presumably able to explain to me.
Please do, then.

No one really is dual booting also the current Bios marufacturers dont engourage it either. How ever there are cases where it is still possible but with a success rate is low and it is usually unstable. Now how about you try installing your WIN8.1 OS through WIN7 OS?Yes I mean through a virtual box/virtual machince.

What if you set CSM enabled and first to boot, then try the above?

What if you set CSM enabled, first to boot, and then load Win7 optimized defaults?

I got it back, but when it was returned it had two viruses on it. One was Windows police pro and the other was Protection System. I am sure i got rid of Police pro but i cant get rid of protection system. I tried to download Malware and Combo Fix ,but everytime i go to launch a program it brings up some command prompt thing saying C\\Windows\system32\desote. It is beinging to frustrate me and i dont know what to do. Please someone help D: [(Note for all)(i started firefox by right clicking and using the run as command)]

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

I have installed on my computer a new PC only version of Windows 8. I've not purchased a new PC for about 8 years so its impossible it came with the computer, I built the computer myself.

I remember I brought an upgrade copy of Win8 in error, I got it from PC world. I still have those disk but now I also have this new PC version. I remember going back to PC to tell them I brought it in error I also remember calling the MS helpline.

Can anyone make sense of this? How did this copy come to be working on this computer?

I'm currently wanting to do a clean install but I can't because I can't workout what happened in the past

HELP

Cheers
 

A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

Here is some more information on the ZDnet web site.

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Every time I start the computer, I get a pop-up appearing right before the user log on screen. It says "Fixed" and will not let me exit out, so I can only perss "OK" to bypass it. The log on screen is normal and any user can be selected to log on. But, when selcted to log on, it loads personal settings, flashes the desktop and immediately logs off and saves the settings. I can not get to the desktop, so I can not scan for viruses or delete files. I really don't want to hear the computer is forever inoperable. Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi! I'm new here -- noticed that a few people had the same problem I'm having with IE Pop-Ups, so I thought I'd look for some help. Spyware scans and pop-up stoppers couldn't cut it and my virus scanner finds nothing wrong.

Though I can only check back here every now and then, and not on the weekends (I apologize in advanced for slow replies), I was hoping that someone might have some ideas on where to go to fix this!

A:Pop Up impossible to remove

Here is a quote from the spybot forums on this subject

The problem with the DSO Exploit is a little bug. We have already been able to locate and fix it, but unfortunately it was not included with the last update. It will hopefully be with the next one.
The DSO Exploit is a security gap in IE. Microsoft did already repair this, so if you have all Windows updates and patches installed, it is not dangerous for your system.
I hope that explains the situation.

If you want to stop it appearing in Spybot do this Click on Mode/advanced/settings/ignore products then tick it in the list that appears and it wont show anymore

Hi!
A few months ago (April 2000), I ENCRYPTED a *.zip-file with the PGP-freeware (hope u heard of it). I wrote down my pass-phrase and de-installed the PGP-software a few weeks later, but let the file (xxx.zip.pgp) encrypted. Now I am in urgent need of this file I encrypted with the PGP software, but I CAN NOT DECRYPT IT with the current PGP software!!!! WHY?!?! I installed PGP-freeware 6.58, which is the latest one, and made EXACTLY the same passphrase like I did, to encrypt the data, but everytime I try to double-click the "xxx.zip.pgp"-file, PGP opens up a little window, telling me that my no pass sentence or something like that could be found! And when I click on the "unknown"-line in this window, the program tries to connect to a server, but everytime I get a "Server-error"! THIS SUCKS!
How do I DECRYPT a file which has been ENCRYPTED a few months ago, when another version of PGP was used?
