Q: 8560w Win7 64bit Cloning HDD to SDD failed with MBR error 3 ...

How to recover unbootable laptop? Received Acronis True Image with Kingston SSD purchase. Loaded it, ran it from Windows, selected source; internal HDD, and selected target; external USB attached SSD. Acronis True Image then wanted to reboot to begin the transfer. Upon reboot I had to swipe my fingerprint as usual for reboots. Then got MBR error 3 Then the boot process continued straight to Startup Recovery - found a problem, repair failed with error code 0x490This the current status and has not changed. Tried these cmds C: , diskpart /fixboot (successful result but no help) , diskpart /fixmbr (successful but no help) diskpart /ScanOS fails with no OS found ALSO - In BIOS I removed the Security password fingerprint requirement to speed all of these reboot attempts. Did I just lock myself out of the C: partition for good.? Appreciate any help and advice this forum can give to help me recovery the HHD and C: partion. ALSO 2: I scanned the HDD with Partition Wizard and it finds all the partitions though the big partition which I presume is C is listed with no label, 445GB, full, and unknown instead of NTFS. cripes

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.)


Win 7-64 on Gateway FX6860 i7 system 8gm ram tons of HD space.
Got "Page Failed to Load" error attempting to change my Win7-64bit display resolution.
This used to work, but no more ( don't know what might have caused it)

I ran "sfc /scannow". SFC reported that there were corrupted files that could not be repaired or replaced and to look at CBS.log. I did but can make no sense out of it.

Please find that file attached -- Any help will be appreciated.....

thank you,

A:"Page Failed to Load" error attempting to change my Win7-64bit display

Run the system file check again. Sometimes it requires multiple runs. Reboot after each run (or before the first run if you have not rebooted since the last time you ran the check).Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

Hi every one,

i have this machine which is causing too much headache for me,

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.

thank you

I have recently tried to install a 64 bit version of XP on my Dell Inspiron N5050.
It was running Win7 before and I needed XP for work.
I made the partition, and installed XP and now Windows 7 will not boot. I tried installing EasyBCD but since the drivers were not installed on the new OS, I can't connect to the internet at all.
I just need some help on possibly removing the XP partition and recovering with the win7 recovery partition so I can just run XP on a virtual console.
When I boot the computer it does not give me the option to use the recovery disk or boot windows 7 at all.
Let me know if you need any other information.

Hey, I'm trying to upgrade from a 750Gb hard drive to a 500Gb Hybrid drive, and I'm running into a few difficulties. I'm using the free version of Macrium Reflect, every walk through I've read says to select the partition with the windows symbol, however I have two? Is this normal? I've been trying to clone both just in case. Shown below.

Secondly, the first partition clones just fine, but my C: drive won't and I keep getting the below message.

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

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!

Hi, whoever's reading this.

I recently wiped my drive with both diskpart -> full clean and clean to try and fix up my drive so that I could use it again after a nasty virus infection, but nothing seems to be working right now, including my drive. After my most recently diskpart -> clean, I tried to reinstall Win7, and got an error during the installation; after rebooting, I got a different error that seems to loop in a reboot->error->reboot cycle.

The error title is "Install Windows", and the text reads:
The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, then restart the installation.

I got a Win7 repair .iso online and burned it to a USB and made a bootable USB. I also have my Win7 upgrade disk that I've been using to reinstall Win7, but regardless of which method I use, I get the error and get kicked right back out. I've tried to do as much as I possibly can to fix/diagnose/anything this issue, but I haven't figured much out, and google doesn't seem to have much either.

Help, anyone?

Hello, and first of all I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this but... I've recently decided to reinstall win7 64bit because my computer started freezing up occasionally while browsing, playing games or even watching youtube videos... the freezes would pass after a few minutes and the computer would recover and start up/shut down would take a long time as well. So I thought that reinstalling windows might help as I havent done it in a long while. But I ecountered a problem while installing win7 64bit, I receive these errors (0x8007045D and later after trying a few things it changed to 0x80070002 both times it stated something about files missing or being corrupt) while on the "extracting windows files" section of the setup. I've done a clean install every single time and formated my HDD (seagate barracuda 7200.10 320GB) but got an error every single time but at various %'s (once it went up to 70% other times it would get stuck as soon as 5%). I'm really out of ideas now, I've tried switching RAM's, switching DVD Drives, Disconnecting my GPU but nothing seems to help... has my HDD died? Or prehaps my Mobo or CPU is acting up? Help please!

Oh, and I burned my win7 ISO's myself via imgburn - I've used the slowest possible burn speed (x2) and did it multiple times but every single DVD gave same error. Also I've tried multiple ISO's and downloaded them multiple times as well to confirm they didnt get corrupted while downloading.

Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the ISO to DVD yourself? If so, confirm ISO or download another, burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Next try writing ISO flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in the dropdown menu.

Test your HD using Seagate SeaTools extended CD scan, which can also wipe the HD afterwards before trying install again.

Next try install after removing all but 2gb of RAM. Then swap RAM sticks. TEst your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ CD for 5-6 passes or overnight.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals. REset BIOS to optimal defaults in BIOS Setup. Report back all results.

So I built my third PC in May of this year and have been increasingly experiencing problems. These problems include inability to install SP1, IE crashing, Firefox crashing, and even more frustrating, BSODs.

The errors I received when trying to install SP1 were 0x80070570 and 0x80070490. I looked them up and tried all the suggestions that I was allowed to do. For example, I was not able to complete a disk check before startup because of some error.

This led me to finally do a repair upgrade which was suggested in some forums. I followed a PCWorld article and did what they told me until during the upgrade repair, I received error 0x80070241. It says some of the install files were corrupt or something along those lines.

I am not very computer savvy, so if you can please provide a link for help that requires me to do something above a normal computer user's capabilities would be appreciated. I've started graduate school and I really need my computer to not crash and BSOD. Please help and you'll have my undying gratitude forever! Thanks!

Hi Folks,

My Windows 7 home premium 64bit SP1 has failed to update since 2012. Every time I tried, the system update ended up with error code 8007370B: Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

I have followed the steps at

Windows Update Posting Instructions

and installed the SURT.

It installed correctly but did not solve the problem, still the same error code: 8007370B.

I have also tried running sfc /scannow in an elevated cmd, but it failed with the following output:C:\windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.

Attached is my CBS.zip and windows update error screenshot. I want to point out that I have installed several versions of SURT from 2012 till now, none of which fixed the problem, but may have generated some logs to CBS.

Thanks for any possible solutions.

Windows update for IE10 on Windows 7 64bit fails continuously with error code 9c59. I tried the stand alone updater with the same results. All other windows updates complete successfully, it's just IE10 that continually fails.

Don't know if this is related but I do have problems with IE8 (current browser). After a while, an open IE window will become non responsive and can't be closed out. I have to use task manager to close it down. I have sent off the reports to MS, but no solution has appeared.

I've attached the cbs file. Let me know what else I can do. Thanks.

A:Windows update for IE10 on win7 64bit fails with error code 9c59

There are no significant file errors in either SFC or CheckSUR logs.

In these cases, it has sometimes been a solution to uninstall IE9, reboot a couple of times, and then reinstall IE9 again, before installing IE10 successfully.
It's worth a try

[-] My ntbtlog: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sumaoxizoheimsq/ntbtlog.txt
the SUCCESS part is that's the log when it load successfully
the FAILED part, 'tis failed...
[-] Once, Repair Mode gave this:
A patch is preventing the system from starting
Error code: 0x490
[-] When I tried 7 safe mode:
FAILED: it 'blep' after loaded CLASSPNP.sys. But when I got into safe-mode safely,
that's also the last driver loaded, so does the problem lies after that?
[-] I don't know if there has a meaning, but some things I've done (semi-randomly) after this started:
- upgrade BIOS
- upgrade Intel's driver
- bootrec.exe fixmbr and fixboot
note that the problem happen before and after I've done this

I can't give up to install those before I know why it's impossible, since I really need to use one of them for my college assignment.

HI all,

Just registered after seeing a similar thread on here to the issue I have.

I have a laptop with 7 Home premium 64 bit SP1 that is up to date with the exception of an IE9 update that refuses to install at all.

Have tried various different methods but to no avail including attempting to remove IE9 and then try a reinstall.

Uninstall hasn't been possible. Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm getting this system error when my computer does multiple things or runs specific aplications. I used to have Win7 for years straight flawless since these errors started to happen about 3 weeks ago. Differently from others users from this forum experiencing same error as mine I don't get this error when returnining from hibernation or restarting. It just happens on a regular basis. The behavior before the crash: first the aplication I'm running stop responding, then mouse cursor freezes, then the computer itself stop and finally after a few minutes the blue screen. Things that i've done so far:

1 Re-installed Win7 (all Windows Updates as well) / All drivers were updated
2 Replaced the lithium battery from mobo, checked all cables and memory connections
3 Ran Full virus scan
4 Ran Chkdsk /r (x2)
5 Ran CCCleaner, Advanced System Care, Spy bot search and destroy, TSSSKiller full scans
6 Ran Windows? Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) x 64
7 Ran Scf /scannow

Needless to say items 3 to 7 didn't show any issue. Somehow I can't make Windows create the dmp files (yes I've enabled it in Startup and Recovery Settings and on and followed all the instructions said on this forum) but it didn't even create the Minidump folder in C:\Windows. Not sure if updating the BIOS would help. Yesterday Microsoft lanched an update on Windows Update and I thought it would solve it, but didn't. Attached the zip file from SF Diagnose Tool below.

Any ideas please?

A:Frequent BSOD Kernel Input Data Error 0x07a on Win7 64bit ptBR

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.

ok lemme start by saying Hey to everyone in the board,
in the past few days i've been Reading, almost every Post i found about Imaging in the Forum, but all that left me in the End is confused.

I have a windows 7 64 bit Machine (Bare Minimum Office, AV, Drivers And Custom Settings, Reg fixes)

I want to make an Image of this Install so i can later Restore it if i choose to.

Until now i've been very Happy with Hiren boot cd
and been using Acronis True Image and Ghost For the past years through Windows XP And Vista.

and been very Happy with it and it worked flawlessly for all my Images.

I Didn't Mind Maintaining several Images for my 2 Laptops and 2 Pcs that's the way I want it.
After that I moved to Working with WinPE and Imagex in vista 32 bit and everything was fine.
Year ago I decided to move to Win 7 64 bit, made all the adjustments with my software and drivers and installed a Basic and a Complete PC with 2 images, using hiren boot cd and acronis and ghost,
Been painfull to find out that it didn't work, perhaps because of the System reserved partition that wasn't backed up.
My System works in AHCI Mode now.
I Refuse installing a Software on my PC I don't want it to do Weekly Backups, all I wanna do is A boot cd that Images my drive to a single file, that I can restore it from the boot cd later on.

I've been dealing with this for some time and have been using another browser in the meantime. I also tried to install IE10 with the same problem. Also tried to uninstall IE9 but could not even do it manually. The IE9 security update failures began with KB2817183 and have continued through KB2829530 released on 5/14/2013. Other Windows updates that come up appear to work OK. I have run the sfc /scannow tool and the system update readiness tool and find a list of 4 unavailable repair files in the CheckSUR file. Ultimately I want to update to IE10 but am guessing that I will need to fix these files before that can happen. I have pasted the CheckSur file here for convenience but also have attached a zip file of all the CBS log files. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Problem with Hard Disk after dualbooting Win7 32bit with Win7 64bit

Read other 7 answers

We all know there are tons of different ways to do anything, so I just wanted to check my procedures with you all for any obvious or fatal flaws.

I'll be cloning my Windows 7, on a 115gb partition, to a Kingston V+ 128gb ssd drive. The origin drive is 460gb, but I've deleted the other partitions (after backing up of course).
The origin partition is on the left of the drive.

I'll be using the Acronis True Image that comes with the bundle.

Currently, the boot drive sits in the disk 1 position - disk 0 is my old XP drive, which I still keep as a dual boot.

Once the cloning is done, I'll shut down, change the SSD to the disk 1. I'll leave the old win 7 drive unconnected until the new drive is stable, then reconnect, reformat and partition it.

I know I may have to do a repair install so I'll have the win7 disk handy.

Does this plan work?
Will I have trouble using Acronis true image cloning the 115gb partition of the 460gb drive to the new ssd even if the other 345gb are unparitioned? Do I need to unformat the unused space?

Please don't ask why I dont do a clean install. My preference is try this way first.

thanks in advance for your help.

Ok so I think I have a failing hard drive on my Sony Vaio VPCCW2S1E - Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Which is why I was trying to do an up to date system image in the first place (using Windows 7 backup and restore). My system image kept failing. So I got a new hard drive and sata/usb cable, downloaded macrium and tried to clone the drive to the new drive, carefully making sure I had got everything right. This also failed. So now I have just backed up copies of all documents, photos etc on an external hard drive, made a note of all programs installed and their licence numbers, and done a full disk check. It found a few bad sectors and sorted them so reckon I need the new hard drive - the laptop is 5 or 6 years old.

Question is, what do I do now? Should I try cloning again now the bad sectors are sorted? Or should I just put the new disk in and use my recovery discs to reinstall windows and put all my files and programs back on?

Also - as the clone failed, presumably something will now be on the new hard drive - do I need to wipe it now? Or just format it? Thanks.

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.

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 am looking at moving my C: (OS) hard drive from a Win 7 machine to a new Win 7 machine. The only reason I am doing this migration is due to a new motherboard with processor. Utilizing both the native Win 7 tools and Norton Ghost it appears that I should be able to do this. AM I to naive believing this?

However, I am still not sure how I am supposed to load the new mobo drivers once the new HDD is booted up in the new machine. Additionally, the HDD is 120 Gb and the new HDD is 500 Gb and I am concerned that I am going to run into issues due to the size difference.

Does anyone have an recommendations or tutorials on this topic?

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 am working on a Dell Studio 1745 running Win7 64 Home Premium. I need to run a piece of hardware (Tascam US122) that is incompatiable with the 64bit OS. My plan is to partition the drive and install Win 7 32bit on the new partition so I can run the mentioned hardware. I've done this on another machine (Dual Boot XP and Win 7) and ran into a problems with the bootloader. I learned to install older OS FIRST because of that. I'm wondering if installing Win7 32bit on a current Win7 64bit machine will cause a similar problem with bootloaders? I'd rather not have to mess with the bootloaders, but I really need to run this hardware. And, since this is a Dell, with touchscreen, and most IMPORTANTLY, a friend's computer I want to be 100% sure I'm not going to cause issues I can't fix.

So, again, will installing Win7 32bit on a new partition of a Win7 64bit machine cause problems with the bootloader, or any other foreseeable problems?

Thanks a bunch!
