INTEL to AMD Windows Boot Fail

Q: INTEL to AMD Windows Boot Fail

Alright guys, this is gonna be a fun one.

I bought a new AMD AM3+ 8 core processor and Asrock mobo from Microcenter tonight, got home and stripped the old outdated Intel gear, for the AMD.

I've got all of my AMD setup wires tucked neatly, get it to it's bay, turn it on and fail..
It boots past the BIOS okay, and starts Windows loading screen, but about 20 seconds in screen goes black, and it starts the whole process over again. Same deal with trying to boot in safe mode.

I feel like I'm in deep now and didn't research enough before trying to make a big change. Probably a driver issue that i'm experiencing.

Any suggestions? I would really hate to put my old mobo back in, just so I can go and uninstall mobo drivers.

Please ignore pre-existing system information at the bottom, this is the updated relevant specs.
OLD Intel system:
Mobo - XFX 750I Extreme
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo
Video - Zotac 9800GSO
Ram - Crucial 6gb DDR2

NEW AMD system:
Mobo - Asrock 970DE3/U3S3
Processor - AMD FX 8120
Video - Pre-existing Zotac
RAM - Crucial 8gb DDR3

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: INTEL to AMD Windows Boot Fail

You forgot one thing! Once you make a major hardware change a clean install of Windows is just about always a mandate to see the best results! You can however try the Repair Install method to see if you could save the existing copy of Windows but may likely run into any number of possible problems between lingering device drivers for hardwares and chipset no longer seen as well as other things!

The best practical advice anyone can give you for this however is still to see a Clean Install Windows 7

Hi there,

I've recently built a new rig and I've had continuous problems trying to boot. I have two HDDs and one SDD. It seems when the two HDDs are plugged in, i can sometimes boot ok, and most times i get:






Quote:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

Status: 0xc000000e

Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible


Or

Please select a boot device, or something to the affect.

I've updated to the latest bios on my new mobo ( Gigabyte z97x SOC Force ) and ive done a fresh install of windows several times on the SDD. I also ran crystal disk to check health on the SDD and it came back healthy.

It seems mostly my boot problems are linked to plugging in the two other HDDs, though I've no idea why this would be, and how to fix it? Is it a motherboard problem or a HDD problem?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Friend of mine gave me her Acer Aspire 5742z-4813 because it fails to boot and eventually asks to repair, which it doesn't. Can't enter safe-mode, either.

Only thing she's said is that her daughter installed Norton 360 a few days before it crashed.

Things I've tried:

At command prompt, ran the following with no effect: bootrec.exe /FixMbr, bootrec.exe /FixBoot, bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd, chkdsk /f E:, and finally chkskd /f /r /x.

I also entered BIOS and changed HDD mode to IDE from ACHI. No joy.

Thanks in advance, guys.

Recently I just tried starting my computer on and it wouldn't boot.

I left my computer in locked mode then it eventually went to sleep.

I kept trying to restart it and had no luck, I checked inside the cpu was running and the dvd drive was still able to open and close. My USB mouse or keyboard weren't powering on though neither was my monitor showing anything I didn't hear any beeps. So I kept disconnecting the power outlet from the wall since that's the only way I could restart it.

Eventually it came back and I got startup repair opening by itself

I'll try to make sense of this to you. My computer has been working great until last night. Today, it bricked on me.
Last night and until a out noon today, I was seeing occasional corruption of the image on screen (strange blocking/pixellation like a bad hd tv picture). I started getting locking-up freezes, which I could sort of unfreeze with ctrl-alt-del. This happened frequently while browsing the net las night (oddly games worked fine).
Today at one point the whole image started flickering/fluctuating up and down and then the image scrambled totally and was locked-up, so I hard reset.
Upon restart, bootup fails. Chkdsk, memory scan (from startup repAir and the installation disk), image and system recovery fail. When I read the detailed results from start up recovery, it tells me that no drive is present.
So, did the drive fail, or maybe it came unplugged inside the tower (unlikely bc the tower hasnt moved). Or, did intel smart response technology screw up and the cache is screwed and it's messing up the primary drive it accelerates? Windows 7 64-bit OS on z68 mobo with 64gb SSd accelerating 500gb primary.
Any insight is VEry greatly appreciated, as I'm stuck working off my iPod touch for troubleshooting.

Update: I just tried again to boot into safe mode.

I will try to sum this up a bit..
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. They put out a CD to help wipe out whatever the issue is, but my computer has wireless internet so the CD didn't seem to want to do anything..

I have run Scandsk/f but the system tells me there is a repair pending and must reboot to complete, but I can't reboot.. So I run Chkdsk/f and it completes, but when I run chkdsk/r its freezing at Stage 4 of 5 13% verifying data..

but fixboot doesn't work - I dont remember literally but it said something like: there is no filesystem/wrong filesystem

when i try to scanos it say that there is 0 operating systems.

If not, click through to Recovery Tools list to open command Prompt, type bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr to see if it will now show an installation to repair. Do not change the drive letter as you say you did. If it now finds an installation to repair run Startup Repair repeatedly regardless of its finding at first.

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

Hey...  I was able to access the drive when connected via the USB hard drive cradle on the latest version of Ubuntu.  The older version of Ubuntu only showed the drive but gave me no options to access it.
 
It appears that the drive might be failing.  I was able to copy the data I wanted.  I was also able to modify the avg system files as directed in the AVG support link provided in my previous post.  However, the system will still not boot.  Now it gets me back to essentially the same place as before but now it balks at file avgboot.sys or something like that.  However, this file was renamed in the earlier step, so I'm not sure what is going on there.
 
Anyway, I got my data and suspect the drive is failing, so I'm just going to replace the drive and install Windows 10 fresh.

Hi guys I have just had my computer in for repairs and the ssd disk was changed. I was running windows 10 before and everything was perfect until an update ruined it all. Long story wont go into that  Anyway so i unstall all my software and do an update to windows 10. All the preps and so seems to go fine. Then it reboots and is stuck. Never moves. I see faint HDD activity but i let it run for 8 hours and still nothing, still gangs in the acer boot window. It is after the bios load, because i can access that if i am fast and press f2. After a while i gave up and thought perhaps it was just a fluke so i used my recovery dvd's and reinstalled my system and office and outlook and .... After about 5 hours installation my system was ready to go. So i decided lets try again. And yet again same failure. Simply hangs with the Acer Logo. I called Microsoft and the told me to do a startup repair. However that is not possible, i can get it into the repair mode but none of the functions work. So they said it was a hardware thing but everywhere i look it states the v3-772 should have no problem with the windows 10. I am normally quite good at fixing my own problems but in order to fix a problem i need an error or errorcode or something to go from. Does anyone have any idea what to do?

use linux for my everyday work. But yesterday I need to, and very disturbing BSOD appeared.



Recovery

Your PC couldn't start properly

A required device isn't connected or can't be acessed

Error code 0xc0000001



I cannot log into safe mode. System just hangs at the boot screen and shutdown laptop itself after couple of minutes.




I haven't made any hardware changes ever.I haven't made any driver changes.I do not mess up with any Windows directory but I have Windows partition mounted in Ubuntu.I do not mess up with EFI partition recently.Last time I have using Windows installation is about 2 weeks ago.System sometimes instead of showing BSOD is hanging at the boot screen.




I have googling for fixes fo hours. So I made USB with my Windows 10 installation (exactly the same from which I have Windows installed) and run Windows Recovery Envoirnemt. My laptop is hp 8560w.

Thanks for looking.

This problem has been driving me crazy, presumably since I got the SSD, 'though since I mostly suspend the computer, I wouldn't have noticed initially, which is why it took me so long to narrow it down.

The issue is as the title describes, but here are more details:
The computer will receive power.The BIOS and OS become unavailable, intermittently. (no display on either, 'though it wakes the monitors)The HDD light flashes only a few times.The displays come on from their suspend modes.I've tried resetting the BIOS.I've flashed the BIOS; it's current and making no difference.Having the USB devices in or out makes no difference to the problem.I've checked the RAM, using different DIMMs and different lanes?no difference.I've scoured the BIOS settings a number of times and cannot find anything out of place.Windows 8.1 boots perfectly fine as well. (provided AHCI mode is enabled in the BIOS)Suspending in Windows always works; it seems to entirely get around this issue.I have no speaker, so I cannot report beep codes.

Welcome to ideas, 'though I fear I've tried it already. However! The reason I've said it's the SSD, is due to what I've just now experienced: I unplugged the SSD, and it booted up just fine, minus an OS, but once I plugged the SSD in again, it booted up, on par with what I had previously done as a temporary "fix".

Until now, I've had to unplug one or a few of my SATA cables from the motherboard (doesn't matter which socket the SSD i... Read more

Hey guys.

I run a WinXP with SP 3.

My computer has been running fine until yesterday when I got a couple of error pop ups, which I clicked by fast, followed by a bluescreen. I restarted my machine and now WinXP can't boot. It gets to the loading screen, but when the loading is done, the computer just restarts itself. Then i'm prompted to chose if I want to start windows in fail safe mode. In fail safe mode everything runs fine. I ran through my computer with Kaspersky once, then once with Avast. Also I ran it through once with Anti-Malware Bytes. All done in fail safe mode, but with no results.

I got prompted to use WinXP system restore when into fail safe mode. But apparently I have no old configurations from a past date to use!

I turned off auto reboot to be able to see the error message, and I got the following:

STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xB9F92091, OxBACC7384, 0x00000000)

k71.sys - Adress B9F92091 base at B9F90000, Datestamp 48849e41

I still can't get windows to work normaly, i'm writing this in fail safe mode. I'm not really sure what to do from here. It's very frustrating!

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

Disable or uninstall Kaspersky and try booting in Normal Mode again. k71.sys is related to Kaspersky.

Hey

So I am sorry for not having more information about my computer...seeing as I cant access windows anymore I have no idea what CPU, memory, etc this laptop has.

Anyway. So what happened today was I stated my computer it was fine and all of a sudden it went to blue screen.

This has happened before, but usually the computer restarts and it works fine.

Now at first i restart the computer and it says reboot and select the proper boot device so I restart hit f2 and selected what was my primary hard drive which is ST9750423AS.

Anyway i selected that and the computer wouldnt start. It went to the windows logo and would not start. After it went to blue screen again and restarted and prompted me to launch startup repair. Which i did then.

Startup repair found no solution and asked me to send this to microsoft, i did that as well.

After this I tried system restore...wouldnt work i get an error saying it cant find the file. Anything i try with repairs give the same result and so i restarted my computer again.

It wont get past the windows logo and when i hit f2 again...my ST9705423AS wasnt there anymore...i got scared and was thinking this is it all my files are gone and my hard drive is dead. However after numerous reboots...now it showed up again!

Hi,

Can you access the Advanced boot options?

Advanced Boot Options
Choose Last known Good Configuration



   Tip
Use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to move the menu’s highlight to Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced), and then press Enter as the mouse won’t work at this screen.


Your computer should load successfully, and Windows 7 will discard the bad configuration and return permanently to the last known good configuration.

If it doesnt boot normally, you’ll want to get a System Repair Disk and try going back to the last System Restore Point (You may have to use a friends computer)

Hope this helps

Hi everyone,
recently I bought a new laptop, MSI GP70 which came with Windows 8... I tried it for few weeks and than I decided to downgrade it to Windows 7. So, I did it, everything went well, I was using Windows 7 for couple of weeks, but now I have a problem...
Last night I didn't turn it off, and in the morning i got black screen saying:

"Reboot and select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press any key..."

So, here's the problem. I have hybrid hard drive (24GB SSD + 1TB HDD), which is divided to C:\, D:\ and E:\. My laptop can recognize hard disk so it's not dead. I can't start up, because it can't boot it, and I can't reinstall/repair Windows because it says:

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

I'll also provide pictures of my BIOS in attachments. You can see the settings and all boot devices.

I did a bit of research, and I came across that if you have 2 hard drives it may confuse Windows 7 (and Vista), so disconnecting one of them will solve the problem, that could be my case due to hybrid hard drive, I'm not sure. And the problem is that I can't open my laptop, because I will lose the warranty.

So, does anyone know what should I do to make it work again? I have some files on my e:\ drive which I would like to keep I've tried everything and I couldn't s... Read more

A:Fail to start up - Can't boot hard drive - Windows cannot be installed

I don't see where either Legacy BIOS or CSM are enabled, just Legacy Boot - is there a panel not shown? But that may be enough to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 if that's what worked for install.

That makes it easier to repair. Confirm the 100mb System Reserved (preferred if you have it) or C is Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times to see if it will start.

Different hybrid hard drives require different install procedures. If it's Intel Rapid Storage Technology it normally requires being turned off in BIOS for install, then enabled to activate the 24gb caching drive. But since IRST can also be problematic many leave it disabled. We've even helped users install to the SSD their OS and programs with the data folders linked from HDD, it worked and they wanted to keep it.

Read your Manual on the PC's Support Downloads webpage to see exactly how yours works. It would also help if you could post back a camera snap of Partition Wizard CD
drive map and listings. That tool can also mark Active and add another step which helps start Win7 by running Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR - Video Help.

Dear All,

I need help - desperately.

I have a 4 * 500GB Seagate drives under a RAID 10 or is it 01 array (mirroring and striping) and this has and continues to work just fine attached to Ports 0 - 3 of the EP45-UD3R Gigabyte motherboard under Intel ICH10R and Windows 7. Volume Write-back Cache is enabled. So far no problem.

Now I attach 2 * 2TB Samsung HD 204UI drives (Ports 4&5) and build a separate Intel array encompassing the two new discs as a separate RAID 1 (mirroring only) array. Now the problems start.

Firstly one and then the other drive was reported as having failed. Manually enable the disc again and it gets rebuilt.

No matter what I do, every time I or an application writes to the new Samsung 2TB mirrored array 1, it causes a "failure" on one or other of the two drives (predominately the one on Port 5) and a rebuild of the array under the INTEL ICH10R Matrix Storage Manager software (version 8.9.0.1023).

I have observed new behaviour of this second array (on Gigabytes 2 purple SATA ports). when starting up W7 Ultimate, one of the disc was reported by the BIOS as being OK and the array being rebuilt. However, when W7 started, one of the drives was reported as missing. Then, seconds later, it reported it as being OK and being rebuilt. How weird is that?

What needs to be done to make the configuration work? Are the other SATA ports (Ports 4&5) ONLY configurable as RAID under Gigabytes own software?

Hi. Got an Acer Aspire a few months ago. Am lately having problems with Black screen, then BSOD..Tried going to Intel to update drivers.. site had some utility to find drivers on my laptop, found them and said I'd better go to ACER website, because drivers were a "custom config". So I go to ACER website..found the drivers for the Intel HD Graphics, but all that are available are for the 32 bit system. ???

Then, went back to Intel, found the driver, had exact same version number as the one I have installed, decided to download and install it anyways.. was in process of doing that, and screen went full-on black, for like 10 minutes..I got real nervous and had to unplug and remove battery just to get the thing to quit doing what it was doing... Started the thing back up, scared as heck, but it started like I hadn't even been there. Still does the "Driver fail" once in a while.. not any rhyme or reason as to when.

I did a search on Google for such problem.. found one guy who had it happen on startup.. there was no answer except to contact the Manufacturer..(Which in my case is a diff maker).. here's a link to the thread (different forum) I did find:

http://social.answers.microsoft.com...e/thread/d588a7ca-d020-4bc7-b752-c642aebb3b44

I haven't yet tried to contact ACER. I'm not completely ignorant with computers, but compared with anyone who reads this thread, yeah..yeah I am.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me..

Well, since I don't get any help any where I ask.. I went to tech support for Acer. They told me to re-install that same driver - which I did, AS PER INSTRUCTIONS IN THE DRIVER FILE FOLDER!!

Didn't help.

Then, NEXT CALL TO tech support.. Techie told me to re-format drive using eRestore(R). I said, sure, can do that since I backed up entire system previously on a Seagate FreeAgent Go drive. I wasn't worried.

Did the reformat. Nothing. Black screen flash, on/off/on/off.. driver fail..BSOD..reboot..hard drive rattles..BSOD..etc. Hey! It didn't work!

Call tech support THIRD time, he tells me to send computer in for warranty..greeaaattt.. They're gonna say I tried to install a driver and made it fail - I just know it.

Meanwhile - the "backup" I made on the SeaGate external? yeah - got all my files back (except of course programs, etc)...... EXCEPT FOR A FOLDER of ALL MY CLIENTS!! hahahahahahaha

Lost everything. ****.

Now, am doing business with a data recovery agent. She says it's still there, until the discs get destroyed.

A:Windows 7 fail to boot after windows update

I am unclear as to whether safe mode will boot right now.
Have you tried that?
It sounds like you have a corrupt windows file (possibly an indication of a failing hard drive) normally I would just start safe mode with command prompt and run
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I'm unclear if you are able to do that at the moment though.

I'm thinking I'll have to go with failing hard drive if this has happened twice in a row though.
Though I also notice there is no official windows 7 support from compaq/hp for your laptop either.
It could simply be a bunch of drivers failing.

Either way if you are unable to run a SFC a repair install is probably your best bet. It will reset the windows settings but should leave programs and files still functional.

I'm on MS boards and Philips boards as well. Device manager says it's working but I'm looking at all potential drivers. The MS Audio Device 97 is high on the list as well. Win 10 has had many such driver foul ups for me. I especially grt annoyed by messages like "there was an error" with no definitions. "Failed to install", "driver unavailable". HP assitant want me to delete the Bluetooth/Intel driver then install the update. I'll do it but I don't see where this is going either. Soon the "story" will be found, it will be a common one I'm sure, but it's so annoying to be thrown in the obsolete scrap bin with a 4 year old device that was marketed as "high end" at the time.

Last night I shut my Dell Inspiron N5010 down and came home. When I got home, windows wouldn't load. It stuck on the starting windows screen. I tried to boot in safe mode, it got stuck in mid boot. I tried to boot it with system repair, it said it was loading files and then it got stuck on a screen that said copyright Microsoft Corporation and had a green loading bar. My husband's laptop is exactly the same as mine, so I used it to create a system repair cd. I set the laptop up to boot from cd and tried it, but I got the same thing with it sticking on the green loading bar. I ran a diagnostics on my computer and everything passed except a hard drive test in which I got the error 2000-0146. I checked that error on the dell support website and it told me to take the hard drive out and plug it back in. I have not done this yet as the instructions to do so required me to disassemble the whole computer just to get at the hard drive. After some online research, I created a Knoppix (Linux based os) 6.7 boot cd and booted from the cd drive. This worked beautifully and I am now in the process of transferring all my important data from the hard drive to an external hard drive.

So here are my questions. Everything I read about error 2000-0146 says it's a hard drive failure but if that were the case, why does the hard drive seem to work fine when accessed from a Linux OS? Also, how would disconnecting and reconnecting the hard drive fix the problem? I really don't want to take it apa... Read more

Try running other hard drive tests. I suggest the Seagate Seatools and the Hitachi DFT. Instructions are at this post: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Hard drives are funny creatures and depending on how they are failing they can produce different problems.
I have no idea of how Linux works, so I'll just guess that it uses different functions when accessing the hard drive.

The main point of a dying hard drive isn't why it works using different techniques/OS's - but rather one of "When is it going to completely die?" So backing up your stuff is the most important thing to do (which you are doing).

Disconnecting/reconnecting may help if the connection between the hard drive and the motherboard is bad/dirty. And this sort of problem will give many of the same symptoms that a dying hard drive will give.

FWIW - The other day we took a Dell Inspiron N5010 apart at work. It's not an easy task, but there are plenty of directions available on the web.
