System crashed during install

Q: System crashed during install

Was installing service pack 2 and system crashed now can not even get back to my old vista.

Seems to be loading and then I get:

!!oxc 0190005!! 9293/45274 (registry\machine\schema\wcm.//microsoft-...)

Then it freezes. I let it stay here for 18 hours and nothing. Tried to boot with my old vista windows disk and can not get a fix or get back to loading anything. Latest error said windows can not fix problem. Frequant black screen of death after bios or it goes to above point and stops.

Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: System crashed during 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.)

I think your system have trouble with unload Schema hive - it is only temporary hive and after restart system never use it.Download MEPIS Bypassing Log-in Passwords to Access Folders on Drive
burn,boot it and navigate to folder C:\Windows\System32\config ->in this folder find SCHEMA file and rename to SCHEMA.OLD ,next run system normally.

i had a computer freeze today , i rebooted and it wouldnt get past post , just went to a black screen with no operating system start up , i rebooted again and tried to get into safe mode , but it stalls at a point where it says;
multi(O)diskrdisk..etc etc Sys32drivers\Mup.sys

rebooted again with different BIOS setting and it goes through post , lists USB devices , PCI devices , IRQ settings and then stops after the last line where it says ACPI controller.

i went back in to BIOS and checked all boot priority settings , i tried to reinstall the operating system , but it goes through the windows installation dialogue , then stalls at the point where it says " Setup is starting wondows " and just hangs

i thought the HDD was faulty , so installed a brand new HDD , tried to install windows on that but get the same problem ., it just hangs and wont start windows.

any suggestions ,it is obviously a hardware issue , it cant be the HDD as i replaced it with a new one............... ???

I have first been getting these problems when I downloaded Comodo IS Pro. Apparently when I approached them for help,the technician did not reply to me after telling me to install.

Thus I did a system restore and the computer could load in normal mode(however the screen,etc loaded slow like hell.)

Yesterday, I downloaded comodo firewall and something familiar appeared

From Problem Reports and solution, these are the service that crashed:

4X svchost.exe
1X lsm.exe
1X sandboxie.exe
1X wininit.exe

But guard32.dll from comodo is the module causing it according to Problem Reports and Solution, but anyone knows why and how to solve it?

Have you tried uninstalling Commodo to see if it is causing the problem?

hi all,

my win 7 pc crapped out. its not the disk. i have an image made on acronis. i bought a new win 10 pc. whats the easiest way to get that win 7 image with all my applications onto the new win 10 desktop? i want to get rid of windows 10. i would like my image working on new pc (new hardware) as i will not have to reinstall and configure everything again.

i tried swapping the old pc disk into the new pc, but the new pc would not boot: says invalid disk. could it have something to do with the MBR or that UEFI thing?

A:System crashed, how to restore Windows7 system image into new desktop

you're going to be in a world of pain if you want to do this but have no access to the old computer. In this situation, a SYSPREP with the generalize function is run in Windows 7 to prepare it for migration to new hardware.

You can try cold turkey like you did, you may have to switch to AHCI drivers from IDE or IDE to AHCI depending on what you had before to get it to boot. The boot sector may be a problem too. If you used standard MBR in the past then check your BIOS on the new PC to see what adjustment you can make.

Hi there!

I have a problem with the AVG Free antivirus software. I installed it some months ago and it was working correctly, but I did something in the start menu (I don't remember very well what I did but I think Windows was saying that there were some apps that were launched when the system started and that it was more secure if a disabled them, so I did it.... and since there, the AVG stopped working. After that, I tried to uninstall it but the system didn't let me do it and I had to download a tool to do it. After that, I tried to install again the antivirus but now it has been impossible to do it because when the installation is almost done, the software sends me a message that shows the error "OxC0070643 Event exec_finished". So, what can I do?

I will appreciate your help!

Best,

Be sure that the install disk is free of any smudges, scratches, lint, dust, etc.....

I recently had to perform a repair install of windows xp on my computer. But after it began, and was at the part where it was "installing devices", it crashed to a blue screen of death saying BAD_POOL_CALLER, and something about a memory dump. I restarted it and the repair install started back up again, and finished normally. But then my computer wouldn't boot up, it give the options: start normally, safe modes (and other safe mode options), and the last known config that worked. I tried each of them but every time i did it, it would take ne right back to that same screen. I can't even get into safe mode.

So evrytime I try to repair install again, and it crashes again to the BAD_POOL_CALLER blue screen (stop code 0x000000C2).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am no expert,but the same thing happened to me with my laptop in October. I called my computer manufacturer's tech service and we went through most of the F8 options and none of them worked except for the options under recovery manager: I had a choice of full factory recovery or recovery with automatic data backup and I chose recovery with automatic data backup. Because I chose recovery with backup,I retained all of my files. I don't know if your computer has that option or not. But,if all else fells you may be able to do that.

There are probably other things you can do first. Other people with more knowledge than me might have other suggestions,I'm sure.

Good Luck!

I was working with my "backup" computer.......Win XP SP2 and ran an AVG scan.......anti-rootkits. I removed 5, and one was fixed. Later on I shut down the computer when a storm came through, and about an hour ago powered it back up. Windows will NOT boot up. It continued to recycle, and I am unable to get into SAFE mode, nor will it boot with the last known good settings. I tried "debugging mode", "disable automatic restart on system failure", and "safe mode with networking" (out of desperation), but nothing's working. I do not have a recovery disc, but I do have the OS re-installation disc that came with the computer, plus the SP2 disc I got from Microsoft.What's my next step? Thanks.

Early today my computer was perfect, then came the disater, I was informed that I needed to install SP1 (vista service pack 1). I did so, and towards the end of the process, it crashed my system, I mean a total, complete crash. There is no windows, no prompt, no curser, just a black screen. No matter how many times I turn my compter on and off, the same black screen is looking back at me. The microsoft website is not helping, they want to charge me to fix a problem caused by their system (dont get me wrong, happy to pay for service). Is there any way I can restore my system without inserting the start up disks again.

Added: While waiting for a reply I have decided that I would have to start over. However, my computer will not even read the discs to start over, there is just nothing. Just black. (3 years ago, I had to start over, it was simple,I just put the manufacturer disks in my disk drive, started the computer, and it wiped everything and started again). Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.

A:SP1 just crashed my system

Hi,

are you using a PC or laptop? When you turn the PC off then back on, do you see the POST screen, i.e. the manufacturer's logo and/or a series of checks denoted by white text on a black screen?

It could be that the PC isn't fully turning off and you're going straight back to the screen you're seeing. If that's the case, remove the power lead from the PC after turning off (or remove the laptop battery), wait 10 seconds then reconnect and power on.

Hopefully the computer wasn't dropped when you moved from house to house. Also hopefully the computer was packed up right and didn't get banged around inside the truck or whatsover.

One thing you can do is to check the HDD for any errors. Go to the manufacturer's website of the hard-drive and download the latest diagnostics utility. Then put the program onto a CD, boot the computer to the CD, and test HDD for any errors. If there are any errors, then it's time to backup your files ASAP.

Another thing you can do is to perform a windows repair on your computer and hopefully windows repair will fix the problem.

Also try reseating computer parts. Reseat the videocard, cpu, and memory sticks and make sure they are on the motherboard tight.

You can also perform a check disk repair. Go into my computer and right click on the C: drive. Then choose properties and then click on the tools menu. Click on "check now" on the error-checking section and then make sure the two boxes are checked. Click on start and reboot your computer and let check repair do it's thing.

A:My XP.system have been crashed

From the Advanced Options Menu choose Disable automatic restart on system failure instead of Safe Mode.
Post the lines under the Technical Information section, the Stop code and any file names it mentions.

Do you know which updates you were installing?
If you were installing the KB977165 update, and have the version before MS added code to check for the presence of a rootkit, that could be the cause. Installing the update on an infected system causes blue screens or restarts.

Check the Windows partition for this folder:
WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB977165$
If present, check in the spuninst subfolder for the spuninst.txt file

The spuninst.txt file contains the commands that the Recovery Console would use to uninstall the update. It's a list of Delete and Copy commands to delete the new files, and restore the old version. The last command makes a copy of the spuninst.txt file named spuninst.tag so that Windows Update will know it's been removed.

You can do each command from Ubuntu if you don't have an XP CD.
If you have access to a Vista/Win 7 DVD or can download one of the Vista/Win 7 Recovery Environment CDs, I have a batch file that can uninstall the update as well.

Hi green fairy and welcome to TSF,

I'm assuming you've already made a proper backup and that you're going to perform a clean install. If so:

Start installation again.
When prompted to choose a partition press Advanced drive options > Remove all partitions.
Create a new partition (or two if you'd like) of the Unallocated space > Format it.

Try again.

Hi,

I'll try to be brief but still give all the relevant info. A friend has a laptop that was infected to some degree by the ThinkPoint virus. They asked me to help, so I found the instructions listed here and ran through the process.

Malwarebytes found 60 infected files, so I clicked remove. It said it needed a reboot, so I let it and it rebooted fine. I then tried to install Avast antivirus as they had requested; I foolishly selected to include Google Chrome (seems foolish now anyway). It was running through the install, got to the point where it said it was at 100% installing Chrome, and it crashed.

Now I can't reboot, even in safe mode! When I reboot in safe mode with networking, it stops and hangs at: DRIVERS\isapnp.sys

When I boot normally it hits a very quick blue screen of death that's gone before I can read it.

Thanks in advance for the help. I'm going to look like a real bozo if I return his computer doa...

I used combo fix to scan my system so I could list a log. I asked for help with my hijack this log and didn't get any help.

I ran combo fix and had to reboot my computer. It rebooted to a blue screen that says it halted and there are system parts missing. I am on another computer because I can't get past it. I was so close to getting it all cleaned up and now nothing.

Help please. I can plug in the computer and tell you exactly what it says if I need too.

Hello,

Three days in a row I have received a blue screen of death which dumps to memory and then the system reboots and comes up and works fine.

How do I find out what is causing the problem? Please any help would be great!

-Grant

A:3 days in a row my system has crashed

Sounds like bad hardware to me, memory? You aren't overclocking are you?

Did you run any stress testing like Prime95. Anytime I change my hardware, I run Prime95 overnight to make sure ram/CPU settings are stable.

Hello everyone, im new to this site so i will appreciate any help and return it if ever i can. I think Spyware crashed my system (XP SP2) it was acting slow and as soon as I went to install Trend Micro anti spyware it literally shut me down. Now I dont know if spyware is that smart but anyway my desktop is worthless right now. It freezez before safe mode starts and I cant accomplish anything else. All I want is to retrive my files and pictures off of the drive then i will have no problem reloading win xp. I tried a USB to IDE cable but I cant access any of my files it tells me access denied. Any suggestions please let me know., Thank you

A:I think spyware crashed my system

Do you get the Access Denied error for all files, or only things inside of your Desktop or Documents and Settings folder? You may want to see if this helps: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421



Otherwise you could download " The Ultimate Boot CD" and follow these instructions to burn the CD. Note that you will need any OEM or RETAIL XP Home or Pro CD with SP1 or SP2 to burn the cd. You can boot from the CD and then copy the files to a USB drive.

An alternative boot cd would be a Linux Live CD if you only have recovery CDs.

Let me know if you get any errors when trying to copy the files to a USB drive. There may be a tiny, tiny chance that the virus altered your hard drive permissions.

Hope it helps,

Ok....Everyone has the right to say "I told ya so!" I have read the posts about the freaking SP2 monstor. I tried to take all the necessary precautions such as getting rid of any spyware and uninstalling my adaware and spybot programs before downloading SP2. Now this is what happened...I restarted after downloading and my system does four things...1. displays the microsoft XP load page for 6 seconds. 2. Blank screen for 16 seconds. 3. HP logo on blue screen for 4 to 6 seconds. 4. Blank screen for 6 seconds amd then loops back to the microsoft XP load page. I have contacted MSN support about this and was told that I have to call their SP2 support that has a different number and hours that they work. So I am on my daughters computer posting this dire request for help while waiting the time to pass for the freaking peeps at MSN to get their sorry butts to work. And to thing that regular support suggested that I call HP for help at $35.00 an hour! Told MSN that they would get the bill and for that I was promptly hung up on! Ok Mr. Bill Gates; I got a bone to pick with you!

We have Windows7 and an exterior drive backup. This exterior backup advised us this morning that a partition was full.

We tried to shut the system down - and it asked if we wanted to 'correct' something in the system (it said it was trying to decide). We opted to 'save' the changes and were prompted to reboot the system,

When the computer came back on - there was a white line across the middle of the screen, changed to black and the whole screen 'faded to black'.

Since then, we have tried a variety of things

We did ALT F10 - the system goes to Windows and the Ace restore menu

We did a system restore (NOT FULL)

Then we got

Error Code 1392 The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

I SOOOOOOOOOO hope someone can give us a little direction to get this thing back up and running

One of the back up files says it was created in Sept 7 - and we cannot get into it. For some reason - the ongoing back up is not showing any more recent date than Sept

We DO NOT want to lose the data that hopefully is still in the computer

Any suggestions would really be appreciated - thank you

My system crashed last night. Loading a heavy graphics MMORPG, the screen started stuttering and semi froze. It has happened before and I hard turn off computer and reboot and all is well. Not this time.
This time I went to the "boot in safe mode" or "last good settings" or "boot normally" screen.
None works. When I try to boot in safe mode, i get a string of lines and it stops.. then recycles. When I try to boot normally or at last good settings, I get the Windows booting screen with the horizontal scrolling then it turns off and starts the booting process again.

I went to CMOS and put on default safest mode and that didn't help.

Then I decided to reinstall Win XP 64 Pro, my OS. I set to boot first via CD drive and it starts the process and delivers me a blue screen with "Windows Setup" in the upper left hand corner of the screen but it proceeds no further. It just sits there and the CD stops spinning.

I put another HD in from an older computer with Win XP and it booted so I assume it's not related to the MB or CPU but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do next. If I can't boot in Safe Mode and if I can't reinstall Win XP64... I am out of ideas.
I am planning on buying a new HD and installing my OS in it if I can't come up with an alternative.

Don't have all my hardware info but it's an AMD 2X64 cpu and a decent gigabyte MB with onboard graphics. I don't have a video ca... Read more

So, I did a stupid thing, deleted some files, and crashed my computer. I tried a safe reinstall of windows (which was not supposed to write over anything) but even after that I can get windows to install/run properly. It's windows XP. My question is, is there a way the I can hook up the broken system to another computer and simply copy the files off of it? I know the exact directories of the files I want to get. Or is this something I'd be better off taking it to the local best buy for? Or just call it a day and re-format?
Not really sure what other info to supply you with, haven't opened either system to see if there is an empty slot to hook up to.

The first time I thought it was because I was running some other stuff at the same time, my system simply froze. I couldn't move the mouse or use the keyboard, but I did see the hourglass appear and disappear on my mouse cursor.

The second time I tried to use it I left it alone to scan and I got a blue screen error (which I took a picture of with my digital camera) and I took a screenshot of the log it posted after I rebooted my system, or the locations where the error files are. It told me the system recovered from a serious error.

As title indicates my system has crashed. I figured since the hdd was pretty corrupted it would be ok to format it using a vista img since I have a valid product key and there lyes my problem.

I have a OEm product key and a HP pav dv7 1260us. When I got my laptop it as usual came with no cd's. After reinstalling the OS I came to find out after it first said my key was ok that everytime I go to retsrt computer it saids my key is invalid. Idk what to do at this point. I looked all over the internet to find a OEm version since the retail will not accept OEm keys because of a invalid certificate. So what can I do? My computer now is constantly in a "windows needs to activate 30 more days" state and it won't accept my key. I have called microsoft just to have them tell me i have to contact HP for their original cd's however it cost around 40 for them. I do not simply have the money atm. Can anyone help?

A:(OEM KEY PROBLEM) System crashed

Vista OEM and Retail disks are bit-identical.
The only difference is the Key itself.

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

You need to boot the installer to Custom install, delete all partitions using Drive Options.

Go to Forums tutorials above and search Clean Reinstall -Factory OEM for everything you need. ( In an airport so I have no access to my links. )

I have tried rebooting, booting in Safe Mode (all types), Last Known Good Configuration, Disable Driver Signature enforcement, and Repair My Computer. None of them worked. Every time as soon as my mouse appeared the computer rebooted. When I used Repair My Computer it wasn't able to find any problems and I tried System Restore. System Restore won't work because it requires me to "Enable System Protection". I can't enable System Protection because I can't boot into Windows. So I need a way to enable System Protection using Command Prompt. Thanks!

A:Windows 7 RC Crashed On Recent Software Install

Hey Dhanapati & Theproblemfullman, thanks for the replies, I do have a System Restore Image but I'm unsure if it was a backup on OS Visa 32-bit or a beta of Windows 7. I know for a fact it isn't a System Image of the Windows 7 RC. Even though will this work? And I've tried System Image Recovery in the past and I got a message telling me that I need a 32-bit OS to System Image Restore. It tells me to install a fresh copy of 32-bit (doesn't mention Windows 7 or Vista). Reboot my PC. And then to use a 32-bit installation CD instead of the 64-bit I was using. That doesn't make sense. It must be a bug... I'll try burning a 32-bit CD in the morning as the image is already on my other computer. EDIT: I've tried the 32-bit but it stills says to put in a 32-bit installation CD. Only fix left now is to reformat. :(
