Preferred Solution: B40-45 - EFI Network Boot Fail after Windows 7 install.

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.)

Hey,
So yesterday I installed Windows 7 on a laptop, there wasnt enough room for an upgrade so did a new install. The install went find until I had to enter information, Name, password, internet settings etc.
Here a red cross came on the screen and the laptop crashed
When the laptop restarted nothing happened. It went to a black screen and there is a a flashing underscore _ in the top right hand corner. that is it.
I can access the boot menu but cant boot from either hard drive installed in the computer which makes me think its an IDE cable fail. I can basically only boot from disc which just tries to make me install Windows 7 again and none of the repair options work. But if it lets me install windows to hard drive again it cant be an IDE fail surely? I need help ASAP
Thanks

A:Windows Install Boot Fail. Emergency Help

I would go to the manufacturers website of the make of hard drive you have. Download their harddrive diagnostic tool or, use a third party one to test your hard drive. If all goes well you may have a bad copy of Windows. Might be a corrupted file on the disk or bad disk.

Hello,
I have windows 7 32 bit, and I was having minor problems with my network adapter, but it still worked until I tried to update the drivers, now, neither of my on board network ports will work.I downloaded the drivers from Gigabyte and they will not install correctly. The network ports are Realtek. I went to realtek's site and downloaded their drivers and they still won't work. I have uninstalled/reinstalled/restarted a bunch of times. In device manager, it says "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1). The parameter is incorrect." The other message I get from device manager sometimes is "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)" I have searched for Code 31 for a while and can't find anything specific to my problem.
The realtek adapters is Realtek RTL8168/8111 Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)

I've downloaded every driver I can. I don't think it's a hardware problem because it worked fine until I tried updating my drivers. So I grabbed a Belkin USB network adapter and router from my friend so I could at least have some form of internet and I plug it in and go to install it and the installation for that fails too! I don't understand what is causing these failed installations

Hi:Generally it is a lot safer to download any drivers from the pc makers web site. for your model and operating system.
I would go there and download/install in this order:

And any other device drivers that appear to be in error status in device manager.
Can you not in device manager,roll back the driver being used to an older driver ?

Hello everyone,
this is my first time here. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this problem, as it has made everything grind to a halt.
 
My main computer just died, so I figured I'd take my old computer, which was never hooked up to the internet (in order to always keep it clean as a baby's rear end), and use it to run either diagnostics and/or data recovery software on my malfunctioning C drive from my dead computer.
 
The old computer had XP pro sp2 on it, with a P4 3.4 processor, and an Intel board. The first obstacle, was getting it online. Simply plugging in the networking cable did nothing. After endless amounts of reading, it seems that because they computer was never meant to be online, the networking (or "LAN"?) drivers were never installed. After many tries and much confusion, I finally had someone find them online for me, put the drivers on a thumbdrive, and after a few attempts I was able to get this old girl connected. But I must say, for those who don't really know what they are doing very well, the procedure for setting up the network connections was anything but easy. The automated system for doing it failed every time. No reason way. So I finally managed to do it manually, somehow. To be honest, I don't even remember now. When you attempt to do something for 12 hours in a row, trying every possible solution, it's easy to forget specifics.

A:efi network 0 for ipv4 boot fail

hi mafew,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It seems like the HDD is being bypassed and the unit is booting directly to the network. Can you try to:
1. Boot into the BIOS (press Fn+F2 on power-up) and check if the HDD is getting detected on the Information Tab.
 
Link to picture
 
2. If the HDD's detected, navigate to the Boot Tab and ensure it's the first boot. If it still fails, try to disable UEFI and press F10 to save and exit.
 
Link to picture
 
 
If the HDD's not detected, you may need to contact lenovo for service as there's most likely a defect on the HDD.
 
 
Regards

I've noticed this on some (not all) of my machines here at work. System in example is an Dell Latitude E6530 running fully up to date Windows 7 64bit on our domain.

When a user logs on, the system decides it wants to detect network printers for some reason. It then tries to unsuccessfully install said network printers. Systems are already connected to other various network printers, and don't need these printers installed.

Is there some option that is checked that is making the computer search for these devices? If you remove them, then hit scan for hardware changes, it doesn't pick them up. However, when you login, it starts all over again..

Hi FSNx28,

You should try and disable automatic installation of devices on the system:

This should disable the driver installation every time to log in to the system. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

A:EFI network 0 for IPv4 boot fail on idea pad

hi JessMoggie93,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
this may be cause by a wrong Boot Order or the HDD technically cannot be detected by your computer cuasing it to boot to other media.
 
Can you first try doing a Power Drain.
 
Remove the AC Adapter from your Computer if the battery can be removed, Remove it as well.
 
Hold the Power Button down for 15 sec.
 
Reconnect Everything, Turn on the Computer and start hitting F2 or Fn + F2
 
This will boot the system to BIOS
 Check Under the Information TAB if the HDD / Hard disk is being detected.

 
If you cannot Find the HDD in there, you can check You system's  maintenance Manual on how to Re-seat the HDD connection.
 
or
 
You can conatct lenovo Support for Assistance on Hardware.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Yesterday, the same error occured. I checked the hard drive again and it said it was there. Again, I restarted and it has been fine. I also disabled "PXE Boot to LAN" as suggested on page 2.  I've had this computer for around 1 year, 9 months. How likely is this to happen again?

I am really stuck. My installation of Win 7 Ultimate has a problem. It will not install SP1, occasionally dies with the BSOD, sfc shows corrupt files that it cannot repair, start up repair from the repair disk cannot repair problems, and a repair install from the OEM disk terminates before it finishes. I have run virus scans (Vipre) and malware scans using the MS utility - the machine is clean. The problem had been an annoyance I couldn't solve until Saturday.

When I left on a business trip on the 2nd the PC was working fine. When I returned on the 7th the machine was running but the desktop was pixillated. I rebooted and it seemed fine. The next morning it wouldn't boot from my primary HD. None of the repair actions using the repair disk or the OEM disk worked. On boot I would get an error message that files were missing. I tried replacing the 'missing or corrupt' files from a good Win 7 installation on my laptop (same OS disk). No help - just a message other files were missing. I finally copied all the System 32 files and pasted them in. No joy.

My work around was to nuke a second HD and reinstall a earlier image - about a week earlier. The system is up and running, boots normally, but is not right. I cannot run a repair install from the OEM disk - it stalls about 1/3 of the way. The sfc still indicates there are corrupt files it cannot fix. MS System Update Readiness doesn't fix the problems.

A:Win 7 crash - SP1 fail - repair install fail

Last night I stumbled on to something that solved my inability to perform a repair reinstall of Win7 Ultimate. Keep in mind, my machine would not boot and that I had to restore my system from an image after none of the repair techniques would solve the problem. After restoring from the image I was able to boot up, but still could not perform a repair reinstall of Win7. Also, sfc still identified that there were corrupt files it could not repair.

I started to suspect something hardware related like mobo, RAM, or BIOS - not for any deep technical reason, just that nothing else seemed to work. I read something about 'bad RAM' or damaged RAM slots potentially causing problems. I pulled out 3 of the 4 1 GB Corsair CM2X1024-6400 sticks and ran a repair install.

The reinstall of Win7 Ultimate worked fine, no hitches. When I ran sfc after it indicated no problems. The automatic update downloaded a ton of MS files - all installed without a problem (I still haven't seen SP1 - and I not sure I'll try to install it yet, if it does show up.)

I'm going to reinstall the RAM one stick at a time and run memory diagnostics. I'd like to understand what happened. It's important for me to find out if it's a back stick, a bad socket, or something to do with mobo. Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Follow these steps to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is a much better install than doing Factory Recovery which includes all the bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions in Win7. Everything is provided in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install, and you'll have a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with those steps.

To force Recovery disks to run you can sometimes wipe the Hard Drive first with Diskpart Clean Command

Hey everyone, I'm a college student with a Macbook Pro running Boot Camp and running WinXP natively. Just yesterday, I got an error right in one of my classes saying I had a corrupt system file and said to reinstall or repair. So, I pop in the WinXP cd and repair Windows and go through the whole process of fixing Windows. Once I get through it all, I go to Microsoft Update just to find out I have a ton of updates to install. (91!) I had to install Installer 3.0 and it installed successfully and I restarted. I go to install the rest of the updates and Microsoft update downloads all the updates and when it goes to update....they ALL fail. Every last one fails. All 91! I don't understand what is going on.

I heard somewhere that you need to uninstall all .NET things so I did that. Still didn't work.

Someone said to stop AutoUpdate and clean out the SoftwareDistribution folder and start up AutoUpdate again. Still didn't work.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Installer 3.0, thinking it might be the problem. Uninstall is fine, but when I go to download and install, IT TOO FAILS TO INSTALL!! So, now I'm 92 updates down.....

I was told to go check my update history on the Windows Update website. It has no record of any failed updates. I tried multiple times to install with failed attempts and the history has no record of me failing to install anything. So, that basically means I have no error code to find through that.

Can anyone please help me? I ne... Read more

Well, I tried to install Windows 8 on my old Compaq Presario X1010US (running Win XP home) and the install failed due to the NX issue. I went into the bios and there is no option to enable NX. And there are no further flashes to the bios available.

As I paid for the upgrade and was given a serial number, can I use this serial number to install Windows 8 on my Netbook or Desktop which are running Windows 7?

As this was a download saved to my desktop, how can I transfer the download to install on my desktop?

If this can't be used on one of my other computers, how and were would I request a refund due to incompatability issues?

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, you can.

Check this post by BillWindows.

Upgraded, but changed my mind (want clean install, help!)

Then boot from that to completely wipe your disk and reformat, make sure you have your key for when you start the installation. If you have a Windows Live account use that. Make sure you feel comfortable doing this and have anything you need backed up, this worked for me, I hope it works for you.

So here's my problem:

I bought the student version of Windows 7 Pro x64 online and downloaded it. Windows 7 completes the install and begins to boot, the windows logo shows up and then my monitor turns off. Computer boots in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 R2

What I've done to try to correct this:

1. Removed my overclocks and put the bios on default.
2. Removed all but one stick of ram.
3. Removed all USB devices except for the KB
4. Tried Different HD
5. Tried to install from a separate windows onto another HD
6. Tried to install using Flash drive or a Bootable DVD.
7. Bios is on F9 Bios (F10 is beta)
8. Removed my soundcard
9. Burned the ISO as slow as possible
10. Downloaded another install
11. Torrented the same version I was downloading (in case it was downloading a corrupt file from MS)
12. Switched slots of my vid card.
13. Tried a different DVI Port on my vid card.

Now I'm at a loss at what to do. I've tried with 3 different hard drives and numerous versions of (retail) Windows 7. Any other advice? I'm thinking that it might not be loading the drivers for my video card but I can't figure out which file the driver is when I download it from the ATI website.

I do not have another computer or video card to try this with.

A:Windows 7 Install Fail to Finish

If you also have onboard graphics, disable your card, default to onboard chip output and see if it installs - which would mean your card driver is the problem. Also try loading your card's Win7 first and Vista drivers upfront in the install process. Use another vid card for testing.

Reset all BIOS settings to default.

Hi

My friend has a laptop and she is trying to install Service Pack 2. Each time at the attempt of installation, the update fails. I have attached the error she is receiving.

I have researched about the problem and read somewhere that uninstalling the anti virus software may help with the Service Pack installing. But my friend isn't too keen on this though.

As the title says, my update are not being installed for some reason. I tried multiple times. I even tried doing in it from the Windows Update site, didn't work either.

As a note, I recently had my windows reinstalled.

Any ideas of what the problem could be?
 

A:Windows Updates Fail To Install

There are a couple of possibilities, but lets start with BITS.
It is possible that BITS(Background Intelligence Transfer service) is not running. Check to see if it is running. If it has stopped running then restart in the following manner.
Start > control panel > Performance and Maintenance > Administrative tools > services. When the services window opens Look to see i f BITS Is running. If not click "restart the service".

If this doesn't work post a reply and lets try another solution.

Hi there,
A couple weeks back I tried to connect my son's new Ipod touch to the PC. I encountered error after error, so I thought that maybe I needed to be sure my computer had all it's updates. There were 3 critical updates that failed when I tried to install them.

My system is Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service pack 3

My automatic updates is on but the history shows nothing prior to Feb 26 (the day I tried to run updates).

These are the updates that failed to install:
Update Rollup for ActiveX Killbits for Windows XP (KB960715)
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB961260)
Update for Windows XP (KB967715)

With the same error code: 0x8007F0DA

The only one that has installed in the past couple of weeks is:
Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB960353)

I've tried to do a couple of suggestions on the support pages but I fear that they don't all apply to me. I don't want to mess it up more than it already is.

I'm not sure if this is relavent or not but, I had installed Windows Onecare months ago. About 2 months ago I had ended up taking my PC to a computer repair shop (I had a broken fan) and they uninstalled Onecare. After that I would frequently receive errors related to Onecare (according to Google - service excutable).

I figure that the first step to getting my computer back on track (and eventually my son's Ipod working) is to have all it's updates installed.

This computer is a Q6600 Quad core with 4GB RAM, and two 1 Terabyte drives. I have run Memtest x86 and both 2gb modules pass. From what I can tell there are no issues with my RAM or drives.

I made sure to disable all startup programs, antivirus, Spybot Search & Destroy. Only 57 running processes at install time.

Hello,

I've been having an issue with installing updates for a long time now, but it was only one update that was failing, and I wasn't able to find a fix for the specific one anywhere on the web. I decided to check again to make sure others have updated, but almost EVERY update that has been given to me has failed, aside from the occasional one that does work.
I have attached three images. Two images are of one particular update that, in the past, has never been able to install. It's been failing to install since the day after I built this computer (Dec, 25, 2013)

The other image shows all failed updates in the past two days. Windows tells me I have 16 important updates, but it can't even get passed "Preparing to install". I waited about an hour, and it was still preparing, so I canceled.
If anyone has any idea whatsoever of what I could do to make these updates finally go through, it would be much appreciate. My computer has attempted to update probably almost every night since I got it (nearly 2 years ago). I want it to finally stop.

Thanks

Yes, you will need to do all the updates in Windows 8/8.1 prior to upgrading to Windows 10. You also may want to click the link below and choose your computer from the list. Once on the site for your computers Drivers choose the OS (windows 10) and download all the win 10 drivers for the computers hardware. You could download them on your computer and copy to a usb key or burn to a disc. That way when you upgrade to windows 10 you have the drivers on a disk to install.

I have Windows 7 64-Bit, and about a month ago I was having problems booting.. I went straight to safe mode and was able to use Diagnostic Startup from MSConfig.. The machine booted fine and I was able to get in and run virus scans. Nothing was found using AVG, Ad Aware and other programs.. So I thought well lets try Limited Startup and that worked! So I downloaded a few registry cleaners and what ever else I thought I might need.. I ran all the scans I could think of.

So then I decided lets try full startup and that was not a good idea.. I now get hung just after the Windows Logo screen before the Login Screen.. Actually I have made it to the Windows Login Screen a few times and put in my password but it says windows starting and then windows shutting down..

I can not get into safemode now either as it will hang with the last line showing "avgdisha.sys" So I goodled that and I get a response from AVG claiming they screwed up the Windows 7 64Bit edition with their latest upgrade.
