Install fail for Canon 1023 and 1025 family MFP on Win7 64bit

Q: Install fail for Canon 1023 and 1025 family MFP on Win7 64bit

When I moved from WinXPpro 32 bit to Win7 64 bit I needed to move my Canon MFP to my new computer. I was able to install the printer functions as a network printer just fine. But I ran into an issue installing the scanner driver and software util (which works only by USB). After much pulling of hair and google work I came up with the steps below. Which worked really well. A friends who had the same prn w/ a Win7 set up tried it, and it worked. Well, it worked for me until I bought a 2nd Win7 64 bit machine. Now for the life of me I can not get the scanner to function with the utility on the 2nd machine. It will work if I go directly to the driver, but DevMgr shows a yellow '?' on the scanner and the util will not recognize the scanner.

Below is how I did it on the first box, and tried but failed on the second box. BTW, they are very similar machines, #1 a Dell E6520 and #2 a Dell E6530. The only diff is Sandy to Ivy CPU. Oh, and mem. #1 is 8GB and #2 is 16GB.

Any one with any ideas....


My Steps:
How to install the USB scanning function for the
Canon 1023 and 1025 family of MFP on Windows 7 64 bit

For anyone using a Canon imageRunner iR1023iF multifunction printer with Windows 7 64 bit, who can?t get the scanner function to work, here is how I did it.

Special thanks must go to Pascal Rudnik who pointed me in the right direction. Also, this should work for the three printers in the Canon iR1023 family, and may also work for the Canon iR1025 family. (They all seem to use the same drivers.)

The iR1023iF MFP has both a USB connection and a wired LAN connection. The device will print and fax via either USB or RJ45. But it will scan only via the USB port. And, herein lies the problem.

When one runs the latest driver setup for Win7 64 bit, at one point in the install, the dialog asks if you are installing for LAN or USB. The LAN branch of the install goes off just fine. However, when one re-runs the install for the USB port to enable the scanning functions, it fails.

Here is the solution:

Go to the Canon site:

Canon U.S.A. : Support & Drivers : imageRUNNER 1023 / 1023N / 1023iF

and pick your variant: the 1023, the 1023N, or the 1023iF

then drill down to Windows > Vista 64 (yes, Vista 64) and then pick Drivers and Software

Then find this driver (latest as of this writing: April 9, 2012):

(Clicking on the file names will open up a description)

iR1023_vista_2003_xp_x64_Setup.exe 02/08/08 36,039 KB

File Name: iR1023_vista_2003_xp_x64_Setup.exe

PCL5e/6-FAX-UFRII LT Printer Driver Setup Installer for Microsoft Windows XP/2003 Server/Vista 64-bit editions. These drivers are for Microsoft Windows 64-bit Operating Systems only. (36,039)

Download the driver and DO NOT run it. Use your favorite un-zip program to unpack the driver set into some convenient folder.

Next, be sure the printer is not connected via USB, and the following steps are done with Admin rights.

Then go to the Device Manager:

Click on the Start Orb, then RMB (Right Mouse Button) on Computer > Manage > Device Manager

The middle pane of the device manager will show the devices on the computer. RMB on the top most icon which should be the one with the computer?s name.

Click on Add legacy hardware, then click on Next.

Pick the Radio Button for manual install (Advanced) and click Next.

Click on Imaging Devices and click Next.

Be sure none of the displayed devices (if any are listed) show selected. If any are selected (in a dark box), click on a blank area of the pane labeled Manufacture to de-select, then click Have disk...

In the Install From Disk dialog click on Browse and steer to the folder where you unpacked that downloaded driver set, and open that folder.

The drive dialog should already be filtered for *.inf files and you should see a file called:


Select that file and click Open.

If all has gone well, this should install the drivers for the scanner.

Let it all finish, and then turn on the 1023 printer and selected Scan on the panel. Plug the printer into a USB port, and Windows should report installing.

Let that finish, and to be on the safe side do a reboot and try it out.

Note #1: Once the scanner is installed, you can then install and use the Canon iR Toolbox to do your scanning and utilize the full color scan capability of the 1023. It is a decent stand alone scanning utility. (As of this writing it is v4.9.1.1 ir03)

Note #2: Canon claimed to me that the 1023 would not work with Windows7 64 bit for scanning!!

Note #3: If you have tried installing this printer for scanning and failed I suggest that you uninstall any previously installed attempts and try the above steps fresh.

It is a very sad note that Canon, a respected technology company, can not write an install routine that could accommodate Windows 7 64 bit, especially since they already have WHQL cert drivers that work.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Install fail for Canon 1023 and 1025 family MFP on Win7 64bit

I have a Canon IR 1025N installed in a PC and connected via usb. While that was installed winxp pc everything worked perfect even the scanner. But since I installed W7 x32 I could not get the scanner to work me. I installed the driver but then gives me the alert triangle on the device and only allows me to use it as a printer does not recognize the scanner.
I've tried to uninstall the driver and re isntaalr from the original cd in xp compatibility mode. I've also downloaded the latest driver from the Canon page and nothing, unless it be one specific because there are few available and did not know which one to use well.
And I've tried the solution posed in this article:

and nothing.

I really do not know what else to do ...
Any help please?

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)

Since I installed Windows 10, my scanner suddenly failed to function, I'd get an error that it couldn't find the scanner. I have a networked Canon MF4570DN printer/scanner.

I went to Canon and downloaded what claims to be the Windows 10 compatible package, MF4570dnMFDriversV2031W64usEN.exe. I uninstalled the existing drivers and MF Toolbox, and fired up the install of the "proper" drivers. It fails when it tried to install the scanner with no error code, just "try later". Right, that helps!

When searching the web, this seems to be a very common issue with Windows 10 and a host of printers, not just mine. So, the question is, does anyone have some "magic" scanner solutions to get scanning working again with Windows 10? Is there some residual file(s) or registry entries to wake up the scanner?

This will probably be easy for someone to help me with, and I'm gonna attempt another install when my new HDD gets here, I wanna use a second drive.

Anyways, it installed, and everytime it got to the part where the welcome screen was juuuust about to show up, it would restart. Safe mode, every version of safe mode, got me to the wecome screen, but only an instant, then restart.

Windows Vista Ultimate is my primary OS, Win7 install was onto D: partition. Anyways, I removed the Win7 from boot option, and my problem is, no matter what I do, I can't get rid of the Win 7 files on my D:\ root, like program files, windows, etc etc. I think there's free programs out there to remove stubbern files, but I want this just gone, cause I plan to keep the partition for game installs.

Thank you soo much for any help, Microsoft wants $59.99 for an answer, noooo way. Hehe.

Glad to have found this forum, I'll be sticking around, becaue I "WILL" get WIn 7 on my PC

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!

My Canon LiDE 600F scanner is failing to install on Windows 7 (64bit) (version 6.1 build 7600).

This scanner works fine on WindowsXP, however.

I spoke Canon about this and they obviously get this complaint all the time and they say that their drivers (which they have failed to up date ) work "just fine" and that it is a problem with Windows 7 itself and that I need to speak to Microsoft (!)

Hello, Quick recap

Thursday I reformatted my pc due to long time issues that finally piled up. I installed windows 7 home 64bit from my original legit windows 7 upgrade disc I got when windows 7 was released. I've used this disc for this before and worked fine. The install went smooth and windows activation worked perfectly right when I booted up I was able to activate no problem. I installed my drivers and enabled automatic updates. Windows went through a series of 5-10 updates installing at a time then it had one big spurt of about 120 updates. All were installing fine, but a few were failing and kept re trying during the next update.

Finally I'm at a point now where the same 9 updates keep failing. I've tried running Fix it, SFC/ Scan shows no problems. System update readiness tool installs and finishes and still The updates fail. Attached is the CBS folder.

Error(s) found:
Code 8007065E
Code 800B0100
Code 80070490

The 9 Failing updates are

Hey all,
Not sure where to port this so her seems the best place.
Been trying to get the Microsoft Camera Codec pack for Windows 7 64 bit (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26829)  to work with images from a Canon 60D. The latest file was released only a few months ago yet it doesn't state on
the website that the Canon 60D is a supported camera. However, is this merely missing info - are Canon RAW (CR2) all the same?
I have installed this CODEC pack but the files still cannot be opened in Windows (such as Photo Gallery Live viewer).
Is it REALLY the case that the 60D isn't supported, or is something else wrong?
Many thanks

(1) Two machines on the home network: (a) Win7 x64, (b) WinXP x86.

(2) Two printers connected locally via USB to Win7 machine: (a) Canon MF4370dn, (b) Canon S800.

Both printers are now installed successfully on the Win7 machine.

(3) The S800 was supported immediately by Win7 as soon as I plugged in the USB cable. Drivers were installed successfully, and there was no problem at all.

(4) In contrast, the MF4370dn was not installed successfully when I plugged in the USB cable. However I was able to download a Win7 x64 driver installer file from the Canon support site (MF4370-4380_MFDrivers_Win_x74_EN-8.exe).

Running this self-extracting EXE and then running the resulting SETUP.EXE didn't actually install the printer, but it did plant the proper drivers where Win7 could then find them.

I then unplugged the USB cable and re-plugged it, and this time the Win7 new device discovery repeated and WAS now able to locate the necessary x64 drivers (planted by the EXE I mentioned above) and now the installation of the MF4370 was completed successfully.

(5) Next, I wanted to "share" the two printers which were locally connected to the Win7 x64 machine, and make them accessible to the WinXP x86 machine for printing.

This is standard procedure, by using the "Additional Drivers" button on Printer Properties -> Sharing tab. You simply have to check the x86 radio button, push the OK button, and then navigate to where the INF file is located for the x86 dri... Read more

A:Trying to install x86 drivers for Canon S800 printer on x64 Win7

I did a bit more investigation on the Microsoft-provided driver file I'd been pointed to, named PRNCA00t.inf.

Using a program named WinMount, I examined the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD I have, examining INSTALL.WIM.

It looks like the proper driver file for this printer was the other file I'd found through Google... PRNCA00x.inf, not PRNCA00t.inf.

I'm guessing the PRNCA00t.inf file is for this printer but for a different environment (maybe for Vista instead of Win7?). I don't know why Microsoft support latched onto that file for me with that hardware id of S8001A09 for Win7. Anyway, PRNCA00t.inf was not on my 32-bit Win7 installation DVD.
So, just on a flyer, I copied that particular folder off of the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD, which looked like it was the official 32-bit Win7 installer for the S800... if I'd installed x86 Win7 instead of x64 Win7.

I then repeated my "Additional Drivers" process, pointing to this new folder.

Well, this time it gave me a totally different totally fatal error... rejecting this completely. Something about "cannot find driver for the proper architecture".

If this was the 32-bit Win7 driver, maybe that's not acceptable as the second driver for a printer where the 64-bit Win7 driver is already installed as the first driver. Maybe the second driver has to be for a completely different OS?
Anyway, this attempt to use the S800 driver folder from the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD has apparently also failed totally, ... Read more

I finally managed to d/l the x64 driver for this printer directly from MS's update site as opposed to doing it through update driver since I want a copy of the driver so I can load off line like I do with all other drivers for the past 13 years.
I finally managed to figure out how to get the driver without using the "update driver" through Device Manager that automatically d/l's the driver, installs it but with no copy saved for backup. You have to repeat the process if you re-install the O/S which is stupid and unnecessary.

That is after you change the setting under "Device Installation Settings" to "Yes do this automatically" since it won't work if you leave it at the default setting.

The two packages I have are x86 & x64 for this i560. Using the .inf file, both return the same message that is isn't the correct driver. There is no .exe so I can run it by itself.

Canon has some file that is suppose to work, but with no details just how to use it. A fix for the problem. I tried that, but that has absolutely no effect.

Any ideas here, I have never needed to do all of this for any device .

I have been having issues for almost a year trying to install Win7 updates. I have tried several things including deleting the SoftwareDistribution folder (a fix that didn't work that was in a Microsoft forum), running sfc /scannow, multiple scans of antivirus (Symantec Endpoint Protection), scans of MalwareBytes and Spybot S&D. I have run the SURT from Microsoft and attached the logs below as well as running the sfc program again - running sfc turns up no issues.

There are two sets of error codes listed:

Code 80073712 - the update failed to install
Code 80242014 - the update supposedly installed but is 'pending' even after several reboots.

The Update Issues.txt contains the list of updates that either failed or are 'pending'. I have tried downloading the updates individually and installing manually with the same error codes. Unfortunately I do not have a log from before I deleted the SoftwareDistribution folder. I have tried restoring to a previous time but that didn't work either.

Of 1500+ views only 52 have voted (3.4%) so is hardly a survey, only those who are fans (maybe) of x64 bit)

If my Toshiba specs are designed for 64-bit would upgrading (clean install) current Win7 32-bit to 64-bit improve performance?

Hello Russell,

Yes, your i5-2410M CPU supports 64-bit.

If you like, you will be able to do a clean install of 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium using the same product key.

As for performance, I don't think you'll notice any or much difference for how you use your PC.

I tried to uninstall IE9 several months ago because I was told it was conflicting w/ Firefox. After I uninstalled it through control panel the folder and its contents were still on the hard drive. I manually deleted everything but the IEproxy.dll. I could not remove this because it was in use by windows explorer. Now I want to re-install IE9. The install starts but then I get the message that some files were in use by WE restart the CPU to use IE9. After restart all that is in the IE folder is the EIproxy.dll and a folder called SignUp. In that folder is a couple of Icons and nothing else. I have tried installing in safe mode. I can not do a restore because I have no idea when the first change was made and I have installed far to many programs to turn back now. I have tried FixIt which does not help. Is there a way to disable the IEproxy so that the IE install can proceed. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Russ

A:Can not re-install IE9 on Win7 64bit

Hello Russ and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's possible that by manually deleting files from Windows 7 some system files may have become damaged or corrupt and are now preventing the installation of IE9.

My DV7-6178US quit charging and turning on out of nowhere so I replaced the motherboard (659093-001) which I sourced off of Ebay.  The bios of the new board identifies itself as a "Casablanca h710".  I have updated the bios to the latest available, F.1B Rev A.  The problem is that I can install 32 bit Win7 but if I attempt any 64 bit installation it fails.   During installation Win7 64 bit gives a stop error of 0X0000007E or 0X0000001E everytime.  Ubuntu 64 bit mentions a lack of IRQ interrupt/handler and quits.  One thing noteworthy is that 32bit Win7, AMD Catalyst and HP Support assistant were never able to correctly identify the Radeon 6470m video card.  HP just plain failed to offer video drivers at all and windows grabbed a 7400M series driver which rendered the card inoperable.  Once I manually selected the correct driver it worked just fine.  DXDIAG never finds a problem but it doesn't see the NVIDIA 6470M either, only the onboard Intel VGA. The board also states that Vista was the original OS, if that is of any interest. The computer was down for a long time so I formatted the drive and used it as storage for a while so the HP recovery is not an option, I have to do a regular OS install. I have tried everything I can think of in the BIOS which is spartan at best.  I have tried both switchable/fixed graphics to no avail.  There are no options for setting PCI/AHCI.  I have tested m...

A:Can install 32bit Win7 but not 64bit

  Not a "solution", but a question/suggestion: > Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.2GHz> Memory: 8192MB RAM> Available OS Memory: 2510MB RAM Given that 32-bit Windows 7 has a minimum requirement of 1 GB of RAM, will you "settle" for having "only" 4GB of RAM installed (i.e., you remove 4GB), given that 32-bit Windows will use between 3.0 GB and 3.2 GB of the 4 GB ? It's kind of a "waste" having 8 CPUs, when you probably will never need all of them, but sticking with 32-bit Windows will give you a "working" computer, instead of a non-working "pile-of-parts".

Hey everyone,
So i am trying to install windows 7 ultimate 64bit of a usb (i used the win to flash program and it said that it worked succesfully) on a HP Compaq Presario SR1560AN desktop pc (yes its old but i would really like win7 on their for games etc.). 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.

OK I recently did a clean install of windows, I was running a 32bit windows 7 and have now had a clean install and am running 64bit windows 7.

Im using a wireless LAN PCI card to connect to the internet. I have reinstalled the drivers and all of the other main drivers I think I needed via USB stick.

My system tray shows connected and says "internet Access" but I cannot view any websites and when i try connect I usually get the yesllow exclamation mark.

When I diagnose the problem I get 2 errors. First says the connection between your router, modem... is broken. Second says the default gateway is not available. The second message has a green tick and says fixed, the first does not.

Im confident there is nothing wrong with the router, as Im connected to the internet with my laptop (using this now), any ideas as Im now completely lost.

Thanks in advance

Brand new Win7 (64bit) installation from Retail Upgrade DVD on a Dell Precision 690 Workstation. 2x3Ghz Xeon, 12GB RAM, 1TB SATA. Upgrade from XP, reformatted the disk via custom install.

System quick at first, then just "takes a vacation". Decides to come back, then off again. On vacation, nothing is responded to. Ctrl-Alt-Del does get me to menu where I could e.g. change password, start task manager etc. But at that menu, all input is ignored, at least initially. Some (LONG) time later, I'll find a bunch of task manager windows running on the system.

What gives? Should I just let it sit for a while (how long?)

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.

Removed unrecognized device via device manager
Reboot computer
Install latest drivers from Asus site. Install looks work as expected. Reboot PC
Device not installed.

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?

hello every1,

this is my first time posting here as i couldnt find an answer to my question anywhere on the net. actualy there are many little questions instead of a big one.

1) i recently bough an acer aspire 5745g to replace my "old" sony vaio vgn-fw41e.
now.. the acer has significantly better specs than the vaio and for some reason it feels like its a lot worse..
it takes 2-3 mins to fully load windows where the vaio only took 30 secs
it is slower at opening applications such as mozilla, msn, winLive mail and some more
and the graphics on games dont respond that well than with the vaio
what could be the cause of this? i have cleared all the items from the startup and maximized performance for nvidia graphics and still dont see any difference..

2)i was thinking about doing a clean reinstall of win7 pro ( it came with home edition) so i can maybe get rid of any acer programs i dont need. the thing is.. as with my previous laptop, i needed to install the drivers in a very specific order to get them all working properly.
i cant find that order for the aspire 5745g and even though i found the drivers on their support site i see many different drivers for the same thing. how can i know which one is for my pc?

i just feel like i got screwed .

well..there actually were only 2 relatively big questions after all.
i would really appreciate any help you could give me!

A clean install might be the easiest, at this point. It is probably all the software already on the laptop that is causing this problem.

If you upload a msinfo32 report for us, we can find you the drivers you may need. Chances are, though, that your devices will work fine with the default Windows drivers.

Is there a way to find out if it contains the 32 bit or 64bit version?
Of cause without trial and error by installing it. Just from inspecting the files.

We found no info/readme file on it which shows the version.

TIA for any help, I've searched the forum for a solution as I've seen others have had a similar problem. I think I've tried every solution suggested...so I thought I'd start a new thread, perhaps to find my solution...so here is my saga:

I upgraded from Vista64 to Windows7 64bit final (not a clean install) on an HP M9300T desktop.
Everything worked fine, until the final restart. System will start, I get the colored thingees, I get the Welcome screen, when it should go to my desktop, I get only a black screen with the arrow in the middle. Even if I boot into safe mode, I still only get the black screen...

I've tried reinstalling x4....
I can hit CRTL+ALT+DEL and get to the task manager, and I can run task, programs go on-line etc.

Ran the Nvidia control applet, the monitor is set to native resolution @ 59hz. Don't know if that is causing a problem, I've changed it but it doesn't seem to stay set.

Other than the DVI output I've tried VGA and HDMI outputs to several different screens from the GS 9800 video card, no change.

I even browsed to the Nvidia site and installed their latest Windows 7 64bit WHQL drivers. I've disconnected everything except the keyboard, monitor and mouse, I've pulled every card out of it except the video card, no change??

Hi Brew, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums. Lets see if we can get you going!

According to HP, they did not support either the Beta or RC:

Upgrading to Windows 7 HP Pavilion Elite m9300t CTO Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (Singapore - English)

I suspect your issue is with Intel chipset drivers, although one would think the Vista drivers would work ... hey ... its HP ... right? If you haven't already, I would suggest you try installing with the onboard Intel video. This page from Intel's site offers Windows 7 compatible chipset (and video) drivers for the G33 chipset:

Intel® G33 Express Chipset? Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows 7 Release Candidate (zip)

If you are able to successfully install 7, then you can go about adding your Nvidia graphics card.

Please let us know if this has helped you?

Good people of Seven Forums,

The last two days have been Geek Hell for me. I finally upgraded everything in my system, and to naturally take advantage of my 16GB's of DDR3 RAM (Oh joy, oh redundant joy!) I wanted to install Win7 64Bit Pro which I got from my college and have burned on a CD, complete with Key and everything.

My previous PC build worked super-fine under Win7 32bit and I double checked th DVD of Win7 64bit just to make sure it was operational and fine.

Well, I go into BIOS, set my boot options for DVD, since I only have the one blank hard drive in the new PC.

Slam-bang. BOSD the precise second the "Starting Windows" graphics appear. It says "Loading Files" once really fast and twice, loading in increments from the DVD and then, without fail or mercy BOSD (I attached the files as per your directions). The insane thing is, after double checking and solo-checking every last component of my PC, I found them all to be in top form. Desperate I took the machine to service ( A huge disgrace for a hardcore nerd) where they told me that it was simply a matter of me having left in my old sata 2 HDD (right...) and simply removed it, told me they'd installed win7 and uninstalled from DVD without problems (didn't ask if it was 64 bit, in hindsight, that would have been crucial) and gave it back to me.

A:BSOD when attempting to clean install Win7 64bit Professional

No DMP's were included

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
