Q: 0x80070570 win7 ultimate 64bit

So i bought a sick new gaming rig that arrived yesterday;i5 6600k
ASUS strix GTX980
MSI Krait gaming z170
samsung evo 250gb SSD
WD Blue 1TB
16GB DDR4 2400mhz

So, like the title states i just cant get this thing to work. I'm trying to do a fresh install of win7 ultimate x64.

So far i have burned multitude of ISO images to a USB drive, patched all of them with the USB 3.0 drivers, i also did a "UEFI specific bootable usb stick" given my bios is UEFI. No dice there. I then did a multitude of voodoo tricks i found online, includin ripping off my RAM sticks and checking then /w memtest, using all sorts of cmd prompt commands to mess with the drives, and switch the USB stick. Nothing worked.

Also if it's helpful i was initially stuck with the "no drivers found " part where windows did't recognize my usb, but i fixed that with the intel usb 3 patcher.

Also, my windows repair thingy says something about my bootloader, but fails to repair it.

UPDATE 1: Tried to boot with only 1 stick of RAM, didn't work.

After jumping trough multiple hoops, this error here is the last thing that stands in the way of my hapiness.
I hope someone finds a reason for this, thanks in advance!

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.

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

When i boot off the usb it loades the files etc. but when i click install now it say setup is preparing blah blah but then it comes up with a page saying no drivers were found if they are on a cd then find them etc. and i dont know wat to do !!!! Is it because the computer iosnt compatible with win7???? is it that i dont have the correct drivers/?? and if so then where do i get them???? please help!

A:trying to install win7 64bit ultimate of usb!

I usually let Windows grab them from the MS website during the install. That means being connected to the internet. As long as the drivers are available from MS, no problem.

What drivers is it asking for, specifically?

Do you have the driver disk that came with the PC? If so, put it in the drive and the installer should search for them there.

I have never installed a new os from start. Do i need to download drivers for my mobo ready for a fresh windows7 install?

Or does it find them automatically on the windows disc? Or online later? I have drivers on disc for all other hardware, but not mobo.

Just confused before I start.

A:Installing drivers on new win7 64bit ultimate os

Some drivers are available later form Windows Update, and some are built in. The best practice is to have them downloaded ahead of time, especially your network ones, just in case. I usually throw them on a flash drive and keep them handy for when my OS install is done.

I've had some drama with a corrupted BOOT drive. To cut the story short I need to do a clean install on a brand new HD. I have created a Windows Easy Transfer file on an external drive.

I'm about to format the C: drive and do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version. All my applications are still installed on two other drives in the same machine. I had nothing installed on the C: drive. When I transfer my settings back to my C: drive from the MIG file will I still need to re-install all my apps or will it pick them in situ, as I haven't modified any of the other drives?

A:Transfer to same machine (Win7 64bit ultimate)

You must reinstall all programs to a newly installed OS because they write registry keys which integrate themselves into the OS until uninstalled, which is also why they should be installed on the same partition with the OS.

You can separate your data out to another partition so if you must reimage Win7 on C because it becomes irreparable, your data is intact, current and waiting on the other partitiion.

I do not recommend Easy Transfer because it can fail and you must try to pry your data out of it. Easier to just drag your User folders to external.

A:Cannot boot my computer from win7 ultimate 64bit

Unplug the XP HD.

Change the BIOS boot order to boot the Win7 HD after DVD drive.

If Win7 won't boot on its own now, boot the Win7 DVD or Repair CD, press Shift F10 at first screen or click through to Recovery Tools list to open a Command Line, mark Win7 partition Active: Partition - Mark as Active
System Repair Disc - Create

Now boot back into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered Repair. If Win7 doesn't start, boot back into Repair console, click through to Recovery Tools list to Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Now power down to plug XP HD back in, boot XP as needed by using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key which on Intel mobos is F8. This keeps the HD's independent to come and go as you please.

I am having issues with my Asus USB-N13 on a Win7 64 bit system. This is a fresh install and the dongle worked before the reinstall. Upon plugging in the device the window pops up stating the driver was unable to be installed. I plugged the device into my PC and it worked without having to download any drivers also a Win7 64 bit Ultimate.

I have tried the below steps with all versions of the driver on the Asus site.

Install latest drivers from Asus site. Install looks work as expected. Reboot PC

I've also tried the "Update Driver Software"option accessed by right clicking the device from Device Manager and using Have Disk then trying each driver file from the above versions.

I have also tried the Browser>>Let Me Pick From a List>>Have Disk and pick the EXACT device (there are multiple that match). They all claim to not be compatible, I try to proceed and I get an error stating the device can't be started.

Should I just try to reinstall windows again?

Its driver file is in .zip format, so it needs to be downloaded and saved inside an empty folder and then its contents extracted into that same folder.
Double-clicking the "setup.exe" file will start the install process of the driver.

Hi There,

Creating a new thread to summarise my issues and also include a more descriptive title.

As the title says, I am having problems with my Windows 7 64 bit install with the system constantly freezing or generating BSOD.

To troubleshoot I have done the following:

1. Updated all drivers to use the most recent versions (checked with DriverMax)
2. Updated the motherboard BIOS
3. Ran memtest68+ for 16 hours with no issues reported
4. Ran the windows memory test with no issues reported
5. Using verifier - only stressing non-microsoft drivers - obtained freezes and BSOD
6. Using verifier - only stressing microsoft drivers - obtained freezes and BSOD

System is not overclocked and to the best of my ability I have configured the BIOS to match the system requirements yet it seems to crash / BSOD regardless of basic or optomized settings.

What I can replicate

1. When the system crashes / BSOD every time the reboot will get through the initial boot screen then display the message 'Loading operating system'. At this point, I get a single flashing cursor as the system locks. A hard reset then boots up successfully into the Windows boot menu where I 'Start Windows normally'.

2. I cannot seem to run sfc /scannnow if I have my onboard sound enabled? It stops prior to completion with the message 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.'. If I disable onboard sound within the BIOS sfc /scannnow completes without any issues.

Over all the system runs like a champ until I use anything that uses heavy audio. From Media player, to games, to video playback.

I'm running the latest R2.37 and verified that all other drivers are up to date as well as the motherboards bios (f4).

Hi everyone,

I recently (> 1 week) built a new PC, and am having some issues.

I have had 8 BSOD's in the last couple of days. They all occurred during moderate usage of the computer. All have occurred during booting up or coming out of sleep mode. I downloaded the latest Mobo BIOS. Double checked most drivers. I have eliminated the PSU, was using a 550w while waiting for the one listed below and encountering the same issue. I eliminated the VGA, I double checked using the integrated VGA on the Mobo and similar problem occurred. I have reformatted after eliminating those possible hardware causes and do not have those dumps, but I will include the 2 new dumps since reformatting.

I did run the MDSched and got 1 error. I discovered that 1 of the 2 sticks of ram was bad. I have 1 stick running the system 2gig and still getting the BSOD's. I have RMA (RAM) replacement on the way.

I have the dumps and was very much hoping someone could help and tell me the name of the driver file that's malfunctioning, if it is one, and i can then either find a replacement driver or at worst a replacement part.

I am OC'ing the RAM as per instruction from Gskill tech support. That is the only thing OC'd. My CPU temp is running cool between 33c to 41c. I do not plan to do any heavy gaming and using just one VGA.


My hardware is as follows:

Hi there

I have just purchased 4 gigs of ram to add to my 2 gigs and would like to use it all by re-installing windows 7 ultimate 32bit and when re-installing select 64bit instead of 32bit.I have backed up my hard drive but i do not know how to re-install without the disk?

Please help!

Thanks

A:re-installing win7 ultimate from 32bit to 64bit without disk

To install a new OS you must have an install disk. A 32 bit and 64 bit OS are really very different internally. This would mean a clean install as there is no upgrade path from a 32 bit to 64 bit OS. Be aware that you would also need to reinstall all applications and that would require the install media for each one. Installing a 64 bit OS just to access more of your 4 GB RAM is usually more trouble than it is worth.

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.

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)

A friends laptop, during boot the screen showed 2 groups of about 10 vertical lines running from top to bottom on the left hand and right hand side of the screen whilst the ACER logo-wallpaper was visible. After booting I changed the VGA drivers to standard VGA and during reboot the problem disappeared. After loading the NVIDIA Drivers update from the Acer website, during the shut-down-restart process I had a BSOD.
Now during boot the screen is lit up but remains blank - with a CD in the CD Drive I can hear the laptop accessing it .
I removed the HDD and placed it in my desktop and this booted up normally. Could this be a Graphics card problem on the laptop or should I reaccess the HDD from desktop and delete the VGA driver files. If yes where and which (on the laptop HDD) could I find these files.
Failing all of the above is a there a "blind way" to access the boot from CD/USB option as I can't even access the BIOS so as to change the boot oprions and reinstall the OS.

So, I faced this problem 2 years ago, yet, I can't solve it.

A few years back, I've got a new Toshiba Satellite C850-B797 laptop. It came with Windows 7 64-bit, few months later I forced to format it and install a new Windows; However, since that time, I'm locked out of ANY 64-bit version of Win.

Though, ANY 32-bit version of Win will install without problem (Why?).

The error code is 0x80070570
I've searched the internet and even did my personal research, but with no luck.

It just stops at 17% while installing, and gives that error.

What I've tried:
- Installing from 4 different USB sticks. (Couldn't use CD/DVD, the driver isn't functional).
- Trying different USB ports both 3.0 and 2.0
- Trying different SATA modes, bith IDE and AHCI.
- Swapping out and removing the RAMs.
- Wiping out the HDD many times even with dban.
- Trying many ISOs and different Windows versions (7, 8, and 10).

Out of all of that, 32-bit installs perfectly, but 64-bit is NOT.

Why? What is the problem?

Hey guys,

I'll be getting a copy of Windows 8 very shortly, (After becoming Accredited for Windows 8. Cheers, Microsoft), and I'd like to have a system partition.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit installed on my system at the moment, but my hard drive is not yet partitioned. My plan is to have a system partition so that when I use the "Custom Install" option when installing Win8, I can wipe Win7 out of it and do a clean install of Win8.
I want to make sure I get this right with nothing exploding, so I figured this would be the place to ask.

I checked in "Disk Management" and was going to follow a tutorial I found within the depths of SevenForums, but the tutorial says to partition "Unallocated" space, whereas I have "Primary Partition" for my entire hard disk space.

Any solutions for me?

A:Partitioning a "Primary Partition" Win7 Ultimate 64bit

Do you want to get completely rid of Windows 7?

I assume you do.

In that case, you would boot from the Windows 8 disk and delete all partitions during the Windows 8 installation process. That will get rid of Windows 7.

You will end up with a small System Reserved partition and a large primary C partition, containing Windows 8.

You don't need to worry about unallocated space, primary partitions, etc. Just delete all existing partitions.

If you want to have BOTH Win 7 and Win 8 on the same PC, that's another story.

After Win 8 is installed, you can then go back and make another partition for data or some other purpose if you like.

Error 0x80070017

keeps coming up when I install my windows 7 disk. I've used two different disks and the same error occurs, though at different levels of completion. I've searched the forums and come to the conclusion that either my memory isn't good for this board, or it is the hard drive that i'm installing to.

When I start it hangs at 0% expanded and about two mins later it gets to about 72% expanded and then the error occurs. The first disk i used only got to 39%. I've ran a memory diagnostic and currently have no access to a USB boot disk.

A:Windows 7 ultimate x64 - Error 0x80070570 Asus P5b, q6600

This is almost always an installer error. Where did you get Win7? Check HASH or download another ISO, burn to DVD or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool.

Boot installer using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first boot screen. Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

If this fails, wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command accessing DISKPART At PC Startup.

Next reset BIOS to defaults in BIOS setup, set SATA controller to AHCI to try install.

Next test your HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, then test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 5-6 passes. Remove all but 2gb RAM to try install, then swap RAM.

Hello,
I am working on a Dell Latitude D630 laptop. Intel Duo Core 2. Had Windows XP on it. Trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate (store bought). Tried to do a clean install. (Wouldn't let me upgrade from Win XP).

During installation, about 4 minutes into installation, I get the error
"Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570"

I tried another copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, which I know is good. Same error.

I swapped the CD / DVD drive, and still get the same error.

I ran Memtest x86 and am getting A LOT of errors with the memory.

Here are my questions:
1) Is the bad memory causing this error?
2) I found one memory slot, directly on the bottom middle of the laptop (2 screws to remove the cover). Where is the other memory located? It has 2 memory modules in it, and I can't find the other one!
3) Is there anything else that could be causing this error?

Thanks alot!

Hi,

I'm experiencing a strange problem when installing Windows 7. At the file expansion stage, error code 0x80070570 appears and my installation fails.
Funny thing is, I installed 7048 from a DVD burned image 2 weeks ago and it worked fine. Downloaded 7057 and durned the .iso to DVD and when trying to install to formatted partition this error appeared. Since then I can't re-install 7048 either!
This is driving me crazy, I've tried different DVD drives, re-burned the .iso's at slow speed, but no luck.
Anyone managed to resolve this problem?
BTW, I am installing x64 versions...

Make sure you take your computer CPU and memory overclocks back to original specs. I can install by x86 without any problems but always have to take off my overclocks when I install or upgrade my x64 versions.

I'm attempting to install windows to a 40GB SSD and I continuously receive the error 0x80070570. My first thought when I got the error was that it could have been an issue with the file itself. So I redownloaded it and still got the same error and from there I've tried nearly everything listed in other threads relating to this issue. Here's a synopsis of everything I've done thus far.

Start:
Removed old hardware, replaced with new mobo, cpu and gfx card
Downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium from microsoftstore.com
Using the Microsoft supplied tool I created a bootable USB flash drive with the ISO
Powered the new hardware on for the first time resulting in a clean boot with zero errors
Booted to Win7 install, ended up with Error 0x80070570
Redownloaded the ISO, Remounted it on the flash drive
Attempted install, still errored
Repeatedly attempted the install sometimes resulting in a freeze of the installer but usually the same error message
Tried installing on my other SSD
Cleaned and reseated RAM and Slots
Did a secure wipe of both SSDs and retried install on both
Attempted install with the ISO burned on a DVD using low speed...same error
Tried reburning multiple times with the same error each time
Ran 5 passes of memtest on both ram sticks in all possible configurations. 0 errors

After all of these steps I still cannot complete an installation. The install errors out at different points of the "expanding" step each time.

There should be a MD5 checksum (or similar) on the MS site that you can use to check the download to make sure it's okay.

Do you have an old SATA or ISE drive you try in this computer, see if that works?
Also, check your BIOS Setup, make sure it's not setup for RAID, make it AHCI if possible.

I'm at my wits end here and I have no idea what to do next. I like to think of myself as someone who can solve most computer related problems but this has me stumped. I've browsed through the forums and tried all the solutions I can find [which I'll mention shortly] but it has all been to no avail.

In short the story is I had a decent system running on an asrock mobo and the mobo failed. So i bought the asus board to replace it and instead of doing a repair I wanted to run a clean install. It's been nothing but headaches since.

Specs:
Asus P7P55D-E Pro [using Marvell 9123 Sata3 controller] with i5 760
128GB Plextor Sata3 SSD
8GB Mushkin blackline ddr3 [currently at 1333MHz]
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a kingston 8GB usb key

What I've tried:
-Completely wiping the SSD with killdisk
-installing on an unallocated partition
-partitioning the drive then installing
-putting the SSD in each of the two marvell ports
-AHCI mode and IDE mode
-rebuilding the install file on the USB key [twice; once manually and once using the win7 USB DVD download tool] [I unfortunately no longer have my physical CD... though I can still find my Vista CD, not that it does me any good]
-putting the SSD in the intel SATA2 port
-installing the marvell drivers first [I've tried 3 drivers: Marvell 9123-9120_V1001042 from asus website; Marvell 9123-9120_V1001032 from mobo driver cd; marvell_9xxx_1.2.0.1019 from marvell website]
-installing with 2GB ram... 4GB ram... and the full 8GB ram
-plugging the USB key... Read more

When I was looking at my mobo I noticed them again. I unplugged them. I ran the install again. It worked flawlessly. It just goes to show...

Hi guys

I just got a final version (The one that arrives on october 22nd) dvd with Windows 7 Ultimate, with both 32bit and 64bit..

But my problem is that everytime i choose 64bit installation in the installation menu, and then choose upgrade, it compatibility checks my pc, and then it says that i cannot install, because its not the same architecture, even tho my pc is able to upgrade to the specified version!

Well, i should be able to upgrade from vista ultimate x64 to 7 ultimate x64, without doing a clean install?

If anyone knows how to solve this, please reply

Oh yeah, my OS i windows ultimate 64bit...

A:Cannot upgrade windows vista ultimate 64bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit!!!

Run setup while in Windows and you can.


If you run Setup from within Windows:

You can upgrade Windows Vista or Windows 7 Build 7077 or later.
You cannot run x64 Setup on a system running an x86 build of Windows, or vice-versa.
You cannot upgrade Windows XP or any pre-7077 build of Windows 7 (unless you use the workaround I describe later in this post).
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version. (I describe the best way to accomplish this in #4.)
You cannot make any changes to the layout of a disk; you must use existing partitions, and Setup will not recognize unallocated space.
If you boot from the Windows 7 DVD:

You cannot upgrade an existing Windows version. Your only option is a custom install.
You can delete existing partitions, create new partitions, extend an existing disk partition to unallocated space, or designate a block of unallocated space as the setup location.
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version.

I'm trying to do a clean installation of Windows 7 x86 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop that I bought in July 2008. It's been running Windows Vista 32-bit without any trouble. Yesterday I purchased the Windows 7 Professional 32-bit upgrade from Digital River and downloaded the ISO. I've burned it onto two separate DVDs using different software and a different computer each time (the second time I used Alcohol 120% and made sure that it was on the slowest setting). Now I'm downloading the iso again.
Each time I try to install it (which has been many times, now, trying different configurations of partitions, etc) I get the error message "Windows cannot install required files. The file may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070570"

I've read through just about every thread I could find on this site and others and nothing seems to help. The only thing I haven't done is mess with the RAM, but I'd prefer not to do that as I don't have any experience opening up laptops (although I have built three desktops).

Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks

A:Clean install Win7 on Dell Inspiron 1525: 0x80070570

Try Google. I found these two:

When you see the error "0x80070570 can't access files" on install click --> Cancel ---> you will be returned to the "Install Now" startup screen and - WITHOUT REBOOTING - just re-start the install.

you should type crc checksum into a search engine and download a program that allows you to check if the contents on the disk is the same as the iso file.

A:vista ultimate 32bit and ultimate 64bit

Hello Paliometoxo,

I say that if you have 64-bit drivers available for all of your devices and none of your programs have issues with 64-bit Vista, then I would use the 64-bit Vista. This way your computer will use the full 4 GB of RAM instead of just up to 3.2 GB of it also.


It's really up to you though, but the article in this post can help show the differences between 32-bit and 64-bit to help you decide.

64-bit: More than just the RAM

Hope this helps,

This was an upgrade not a wiped custom install.
Machine is Intel desktop, ASUS P5Q motherboard, Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83 GHz. Install from USB flash drive using MS dlownload manager executable, because I have not received the backup CD media as yet. I ordered online from MS Website because local retailer did not have it.

Install attempt on evening of 11/18 froze at point of requesting entry of Product Key, as I learned of the next morning. USB wireless mouse and keyboard became non-functioning. Forced power down so I could go to work. Next evening, power on to the same frozen display. Powered down again and removed and disconnected all USB devices and audio connections. Power on to reboot, but boot is not successful even in Safe modes nor last known good version of OS.

Attached is my documented sequence of events and hardware details. What is my next move? I do not want to have to do a clean install! Continue Win7 install, but wait until I receive CD from MS? Revert to Vista by reloading from Vista CD?

A:upgrade from vista ultimate 64 to win7 ultimate 64 froze

The latest: here it is Geb 20th of 2010 and I have long since abandoned attempting to resolve this failed Win7 upgrade. I have lost too much of my valuable time and lost the use of my primary business PC. It has been sitting in powered down state since mid-december. I even requested a refund from MS but they said no, more than 30 days had passed. To continue the business, I purchased a laptop with XP Pro and rebuilt or reloaded everything from backup storage.

Who has time to monkey around with software that does not work and or won't even install!!!

I was very dissatisfied with the Vista Ultimate OS I had been using for the previous year, but even more disappointed when the Win7 upgrade failed to even complete the install!!!

I plan to stick with the proven XP Pro OS on the new laptop plus the iMac for as long as possible; I'm done with Microsoft and their troublesome faulty software.

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.
