Unable to repair Windows 7 after hardware upgrade

Q: Unable to repair Windows 7 after hardware upgrade

I installed a new motherboard, CPU & memory today. Prior to this, I decided not to do a clean install of windows, but just to boot up & repair if needed when the new configuration booted up. I DID do a backup of data before dismantling the old system, so I have that saved.

However, when I started the new system, the repair will not work. I can't get Windows to see the external drive where the backup data is stored.

I'm now re-installing Windows over the top of the old installation using the custom option, & my main question is this: Can I restore using the backup I made before the upgrade or will I lose all that data? When using the custom installation option, does it automatically save the old data?

Preferred Solution: Unable to repair Windows 7 after hardware upgrade

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: Unable to repair Windows 7 after hardware upgrade

The correct way to start Win7 when changing major hardware is to SysPrep the HD: Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

Your backup should work after reinstall. Enter Backup and Restore Center if you used Win built-in file backup. Backup User and System Files

If you have an image backup you can use it now from the booted DVD or REpair CD to reimage rather than reinstall Win7. System Image Recovery

Hello,

Once in awhile I check my system files using SFC,
I just checked it but found problems and wasn't able to fix them.
So I ran the DISM command but then again couldn't fix it.
Code:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /restorehealth
The DISM command gave me this message:





"Error: 0x800f081f
The source files could not be found.
Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.



So I downloaded an ISO with the same version and build as my current OS (windows 10 pro x64 - build 10586) to use the option "Source" by mounting the ISO.
But same error as mentioned above showed up.

So my last idea was to do a in-place upgrade , and I did by following this tutorial of yours, it all went smoothly but after the in-place upgrade finished it seems nothing had change since the SFC found problems.

Im out of ideas here.

Attached, CBS and DISM logs.

I have attached my CBS log file. I have an Corsair SSD drive that I boot from, and 3 TB of regular drives. Recently my SSD has slowed to a crawl, and just moving/deleting/copying produced errors and lockups. No virus or malware. Did not know I had to switch BIOS/OS settings to AHCI. Did that, but still get errors.

Did all the regular troubleshooting stuff (chkdsk, defrag, registry optimize, clean). Did SFC /scannow and found a bunch of errors that it could not fix. Downloaded from this site the ISO to build Win7 SP1, but no matter what I do, it still says my installation is newer than it is, and stops the install/repair.

So, I am back to trying to manually fixing the SFC errors. But, I have no idea what these errors mean; even looked them up and still don't get it.

For instance, what does this mean? How do you manually repair this?

A:SFC FAILURE; unable to upgrade/repair using Win7 disk

Does your installation have SP1? Is it a different bit-version 32- or 64-bit? These are the most common reasons for the error during Repair Install.

Does the problem persist after unplugging the other HD's?

What I would consider is getting a perfect Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version following only the Best Practices in the tutorial to setup and maintain the install, then in the future fall back on a Win7 backup image if these problems arise again.

My AMD based system died back in late November, this happened without me being able to prepare the system for a major hardware change. This weekend I finally got around to building a new system based on Intel. I have two HDD's which are fully accessible and healthy as far as I can tell with CHKDSK. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 with Service Pack 1. I have a retail OEM DVD.

The system has tried and failed to repair itself. I tried using the install DVD to "upgrade" as a means to repair but the installation utility complained about a wrong version. I'm confused about that as I thought Windows Seven remained on Service Pack 1.

I can get to a utilities screen and to a command prompt. I don't know how to proceed from there in order to put the OS back in a generic drivers state from which I could boot into the GUI to then install the correct drivers for the new hardware.

I want to repair this but if I am forced to I will go out and purchase 8.1 and use that as a repair means. I really don't want 8.1 at this time as I am waiting on 10 to be released. I also don't like "upgrade" versions which might be required in this case (I don't know). I always purchase full versions.

I'm also wondering if the new UFEI architecture might be an issue as I got the following message when I was exploring possible options:

A:Forced hardware change, Windows can't repair itself

Are you saying that you're trying to start Win7 on different hardware? If so boot free Paragon Adaptive Restore CD (provided) to Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD

If Win7 was installed to legacy BIOS on MBR disk, then first enable Legacy BIOS or CSM in BIOS setup. There may also be a setting for Legacy First to boot. Then make sure the Win7 disk or System Repair Disk is booted as a non-UEFI device. Surely you noticed that you were booting the disk now as a UEFI device.

If there are further problems report back exact error message and at which step, along with all BIOS settings choices for CSM, Legacy BIOS, EUFI, EFI, and BIOS Boot Priority. Confirm that Secure Boot is disabled in Security tab.

Hi everyone,

I'm having some problems with my Windows XP SP3 desktop computer after a crash a few weeks ago. I took the computer in and had it repaired (the people said they did a repair installation of windows, which I had tried myself and failed). After a little tweaking, it seems to be back to normal except for two things: my webcam and my scanner needed to be re-installed, only re-installing them gave me the message "There was a problem when installing your new hardware. Your new hardware might not work properly" and now my webcam program (bundled with the webcam) "amcap" and my scanner program "Scanwizard" both say that I don't have the respective hardware attached to my computer when I try and run them. I have tried uninstalling the hardware and restarting then re-installing them and have had no success. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, and I would greatly appreciate some advice and/or technical help.

Thanks in advance,

Jomon

Hey all,

So about a few days ago my windows 8.1 decided to shit itself and refused to start up. I started checking on the web for some solutions to my problem and one of them was to start up with the windows DVD and try running the repair tool and such.

So I decided to do that, but no matter what option I tried, be it repair tool, recovery, full recovery, roll back, none of the options worked, it kept telling me "this operation system doesnt support this feature" or something along those lines. So in the end I just desided to format the HDD and reinstall Windows 8 and its running fine right now.

My question is why wasnt I able to use those features, and how can I make sure I have those feature available for me in the future?


Note: As I was typing this I just realised the DVD I tried using to use those various tools was a Windows 8 DVD, the windows I had installed was 8.1. Can that have anything to do with it?

I still have my Pentium III 450 MHZ with Windows 2000. I want to upgrade the hardware and install Windows 7, BUT, I not feel encouraged, because I don't want to lose all my software collection (that won't run in Windows 7), nor my printer and scanner. My printer is Okidata ML490 (dot printer) and the Scanner is Genius Color Page-HR7x slim. Ah, also I want to keep my floppy drive because of my version of Ghost from Symantec.
I guess that I can install a "shell" (virtual machine) in Windows 7, where I could install my Windows 2000 with all the softwares that I have. Theoretically, I could then use the drivers of the printer and scanner in Windows 2000, inside this "shell" (is there a chance this to work?). Which processors allow virtualization? If I choose a 64 bits processor, I can use Windows7 32 or 64 bits. If I chose the 64 bits Windows 7, will my Windows 2000 run inside the "shell", installed in this Windows? I am kind of afraid to upgrate and then find out that this and that not works.

Hello All,

We have an old NT4 server farm that runs a single MSACCESS database application(3 terminal servers connecting via Citrix, 1 file and print server and a backup server). The hardware that runs this is nearly 10 years old, it runs ok but we need to move the servers to another location, rather than risk them failing in the move we thought we would updgrade the hardware to modern Xeon servers - reloading Windows NT4 and rebuilding the farm. We need to keep costs down and upgrading the server hardware would allow us to keep existing licences.

Is this a feasable option - I understand the best long term plan would be to upgrade to Server 2003 but this is a short term plan to get us over the next 6 months when a long term plan will be initialted to migrate the data onto a new network.

Anyone with any experience of a project like this?
Any oppinios would be appreciated.

I have a homebuilt desktop running Windows 8.1 Pro that I put together last year around an ASUS Z97 motherboard and an Intel i7 quad core CPU. Drives are a 240GB Kingston SSD as C: drive, 1 TB Western Digital HDD for applications and storage, and a 500 GB WD HDD for various video files.

It ran very well for the first few months, but lately I've been having problems with stability...it crashes and restarts once a day or more. I have a current version of AVG internet security which reports no malware issues and my power supply voltages look good, so I thought that perhaps the upgrade to Windows 10 would help.

The auto-downloaded version of Windows 10 would not install, so I created an installation disk on another computer and tried that. The installation did not succeed and I got an error message that one of my kernel files was corrupted or missing. Unfortunately, I did not take a screenshot of the error message and now I can't get it back. What I tried instead was a repair installation of Windows 8.1, again using a DVD-ROM burned using the media creation tool on my laptop.

Good evening one and all.

I am having a bit of an odd issue with my Alienware MX11 laptop. I just restored it to a previous "checkpoint" after just having the error
"Failed to save all the components for the file \\System32\\000052af. This file is corrupted or unreadable This error may be cause by a PC hardware problem."
After restoring via Control Panel it is running generally fine. However, my issue is wanting to reset it to factory default settings. I've reset to the Factory Image before with previous Dell laptops, but for some reason the repair menu will not load past the black screen with the grey bar on the bottom with the words "Windows is loading files..."
After the bar fills white (very quickly might I add) it returns to being gray and sits there.

Is there another way to return to factory image or a way to fix this?

This laptop is still fairly young (got it last month) and the warrenty is still good.

Hi Beserk06,

If you are starting the repair operation from hdd then there must be something wrong with the repair image or there is a hardware problem (memory, disk ?).
If you start the repair from CD/DVD it could be that media is demagged.

I would run memory test then check if disk is healthy.
If hardware is ok (check in BIOS all devices are listed properly) call support.

Hello!

Recently I had an issue with Chrome (which is now solved), But during solving the error I done an SFC Scan as it was a windows .DLL that was reporting to be in error and the scan found a few files that were un-repairable.

I had a look about and followed this tutorial for manually replacing files: Seven Forums

I also downloaded a Windows 7 Installation Disc from Digital River; Here.

After extracting the required files from the .iso files with 7-Zip, I changed the ownership of them and 'Moved and Replaced' the old files with the new files.

These are the files I replaced;

autochk.exe
blbres.dll
netcfgx.dll.mui
icardres.dll

winshfhc.dll

I then re-booted in safe mode with CMD Prompt and re-scanned with SFC, but the same files are reporting they are in error. Are they important? Is there another way to repair them? I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, I have attached the most recent SFC Scan.

Many Thanks,
Ryan

Your problem could be indicative of a failing hard drive so copy your data to a different location and test the drive with Seagate SeaTools for DOS which can test any make of hard drive: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

Create a CD from the SeaTools ISO file with this: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

Boot the problem PC from that CD and SeaTools will open.

Hi everybody!
First of all, forgive me for my bad english, it's not my mother language, and I apologize if I didn't post in the right section.
Anyway, since this morning I am unable to start Windows 7, and everytime I open my pc I'm greeted by a menu that asks me to choose a recovery tool. I tried all of them without success, because even the Startup Repair is stuck on "Checking errors". So I searched on the internet and found a guide from this forum:
Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

As written in the guide, I go to the Command Prompt, but whenever I follow the first step and write "C:", either the message "The parameter is incorrect" or "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" appear.
I checked and the command "D:" works fine, but my Windows isn't installed there.

Is there a way to fix this problem? I need the computer as soon as possible and with me I don't have the original Windows disk. Is it possible that the hard drive is broken? I really hope not though, because I really need it these days

Hi mates,

I have a PC Fujitsu Esprimo desktop and I went to install windows 8 after formatting only the primary drive C:

Windows 8 wasn't what I expected so I decided to go back to windows 7. When I tried to rest the PC to factory settings using the repair disc I made before on windows 7, it shows an error that prevent from using the CD " there are no drives installed". so I went to use the USB boot and also got similar error "disk error, please restart your PC".

I got my Desktop from Japan and tried to contact the support for this issue, but it seems that I have to pay around $20 bucks to ask a specialist for help. so I decided to discuss this issue here before doing that...

Now I could install windows 7, but using Microsoft ISO home premium version and activating it with my product key. The issue is still there and being unable to rest things back as original. If you want to ask me why I want to do that!! Then the answer is: I want windows 7 to run correctly since there are a lot of incompatibility issues with the hardware; sounds, network adapter, Audio system, and etc,...

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks a lot, and sorry for my bad English

Cheers

P.S: I believe I have deleted the recovery partition on my hard disk by mistake which didn't have a letter...

A:unable to use Windows 7 System repair Disc

You should have made a disk image of 7 before you started. You don`t use a repair disc to get back to where you were, you would use your Recovery discs. Did you make them before you started ? A repair disc only repairs your Windows 7 install, hence the name repair disc.

Did you try to run factory restore from the manufacturers bios screen ? Does it still show up ?

I've installed Windows 7 alongside Ubuntu and was using grub2 bootloader, after changing my graphics card and moving removing some old hard disks when I try to boot the Windows partition I get the blinking underscore screen indefinitely.

I tried recovery from the DVD, the Windows install is not recognised in the list, it's just empty, clicking load drivers I can navigate to the drive - it's there as D:, I can see the Windows directory and files, the C drive is another NTFS partition without a Windows install. As it doesn't recognise the install, startup recovery doesn't work.

I then tried bootrec and bcdedit from the command line, eventually I hit a wall with an error that there is no recognised file system - despite it being available in the Load Drivers dialog earlier.

The bootloader now seems to be the Windows one and I get the standard "No operating system" error.

Is there anything else I can try before reinstalling Windows yet again?

Thanks.

It is not a BSOD as appears. That code is not a bugcheck code but an ntstatus code. It means: STATUS_NO_SUCH_FILE. {File Not Found} The file %hs does not exist.

That means the computer is failing to access the boot files anyhow.

The more I work with computers the more problems that seem to puzzle me and the more I realise that I don't know.
On this occasion I have just replaced a mobo, processor and memory on a machine. I have connected the hard drive and dvd-rom using a shared cable to the IDE socket on the board. On boot up both drives are found by the BIOS and dvd is set as first bootup drive. I loaded the windows disc to carry out a repair of windows as the machine would not boot into windows but the dvd spins up, the first boot up screen appears referring to checking system specification and then the screen goes blank and nothing else.
I ran WD lifeguard diagnostics which tell me the hard drive is fine, I have tried a different DVD rom which does the same as above, a few weeks ago I had replaced the PSU so asume its not that.
Have any of you wiser chaps than me any suggestions as to what may be going on here?

Hey guys, I?ve had my own machine for over the year and hadn?t had any issues until today when a video game froze all of the sudden. I couldn?t do anything so I had to hard boot my machine but when I turned it back on I would keep getting ?Unmountable Boot Volume? BSODs.
This led me to think I screwed something up on my C drive (one with Windows 10), so I made a USB stick with the Windows Installation Tool so I could try to repair my installation. On both the USB stick and an external hard drive that I?ve turned into Installation Tools when I boot into them (setting the boot order so they are first or manually booting into them) I will get the blue windows logo but then my screen will just go black a couple seconds afterwards.
Please let me know if I?m doing something wrong, if I should provide more information or if I should take this post down cuz it doesn?t belong on here.

I decided to do an in situ repair of my installation of Windows 7 because various things such as the Administrative Tools and Winzip no longer run. As soon as I click on them I get a message saying "Microsoft Management Console has stopped working". SFC has been unable to solve the problem. Winzip technical support advised me to uninstall Winzip and gave me a link to a new file to download and install, but the installation failed because " .NET Assembly Registration Utility stopped working"

However, when I followed the instructions found in Seven Forums I got another error message that said that I could not upgrade Windows 7 Professional to Windows 7 Professional.

I am running Windows 7 SP1 but only have an Windows 7 (without SP1) installation CD so I followed the instructions about making the setup file compatible with Vista SP2 which resulted in the message above.

I'm currently running Vista Home Premium 64bit OEM on an Asus P5QL Pro mobo with E8400 chip.

I'm planning to upgrade my hardware to an AMD chip (6core 1090T) and a Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H mobo with 8gig of DDR3 ram.

Since I'm running an OEM Vista, I should be buying new Windows with this change, so I will be getting the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM as well.

My question....how do I do this upgrade so I will preserve my software installations?
Don't want to lose my multitude of registered software I have installed over the past 2 years.

Do I run the Windows 7 Upgrade first and then change the hardware, or do I start the Windows 7 Upgrade and during reboot change the hardware? Or change the hardware and then try to get Vista running before upgrading to W7 OEM?

Any help would be appreciated.

Please don't bother suggesting doing a CLEAN install, since that is not a realistic option. I might not get all my software back again.

Thanks

Twice I followed your Repair Install to fix Win 7 (published 02/02/2009), and both times, after nearly 2 hours of uneventful processing and restarting, Windows informed me that the upgrade/repair failed. It then restored my previous settings. I ran the repair from a downloaded ISO + SP1 file (placed on a USB drive).

Between the two attempts I did uninstall the few applications that the first attempt flagged as incompatible.

Your instructions are great, and in no way responsible for the failure. But the eventual failure notification gives not the slightest hint as to why. Does Windows maintain a log of the upgrade/repair process that might give me a clue as to why, after spending so much time and effort, the process failed? If yes, where should I look for this log file?
Thanks

bhatskar, I think you may have more than 1 problem. But, first open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Also, click start button, type device manager, click on the Device manager entry that appears, and see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks there and tell us what they are on or next to..

You are also running a X64 OS with 2 GB of ram. A 32 bit (X86) OS can address only about 3.5 GB of ram. Your 64 bit OS can use much more ram.
