HP/Compaq :: Win7 Install/deletingpartition

Dec 8, 2009

I want to format.. and I like everything to be clean, like, really clean.

Never dealt with HP computers before so I want to be sure..

HP has a separate RECOVERY partition, so I made the 3 recovery discs and a backup of all the Driver folders. (C:/SwSetup)

I figure I could format and delete the additional partition. (make a bigger one later on)

Now that Ive inserted my Win7 DVD and I need to select a partition to install 7 on.. all of the sudden Windows sees 4 partitions in total:

Is it safe to carelessly delete every single one of 'm .. merging them into 1?

And later on creating another one being that I want 2 in total.

Sep 29, 2009

I've recently successfully installed Win7 on my S170 and I'd like to share my experience with other S series owners. The how-to guide is posted on a different forum so I'll post a link to that. I hope it is helpful since Sony will not support this install even though the machine is fully capable. [url]

Dell XPS 14 :: Install Win7 With SRT Enabled

Apr 26, 2013

Just received my XPS 14 with Windows 8 pre-installed.  I would like to use Windows 7 on the laptop instead.  I was able to install Windows 7 just fine but I am not able to get SRT working on there.  I have the Intel Rapid Storage Technology application installed but the Accelerate button is not showing up for me.

When installed Windows 7 with SRT enabled in the BIOS and loaded the driver so that both drives (mSATA and SATA) are seen.  I installed the OS on the non-SSD SATA drive and left the mSATA alone.  After installing Windows 7, I loaded the drivers and application software for RST but the Accelerate button still doesn't show up.  Both drives shows up in RST application. how to get the Accelerate button to show up so that I may use the mSATA SSD drive for caching?

Sony :: Vaio CS Win7 RTM X64 Clean Install

Sep 27, 2009

I have a Vaio VGN-CS16G/R and why is is that after installing Win7 RTM x64 and installing the necessary drivers, I DON'T see the "adjust brightness slider" on the power options? With my other laptops with the same OS, I can see that slider completely.

Also, I when I install Vaio Launcher which I got from the extracted Sony Notebook Utilities installer, it returns an error of:

" Error Number: 0x80040703
Description: Failed to find DLL function: SnyUtils.SuOpen

Setup will now terminate. "

Are there workarounds on this?

Sony :: Z Series: Clean Install Win7

Sep 26, 2009

So I guess two questions wrapped into 1:

1. If I clean install Win7 on this Z, what isn't going to work right off the bat and what steps can I take to get it fully functional? I saw a nice guide for the TZ, but not for the Z.

2. Has anyone attempted a straight upgrade to Win7?

Sony :: Clean Install With Fresh Win7

Feb 4, 2010

I have a fresh copy of win 7 ultimate (legit of course.. got it from a microsoft event).

I have seen a few threads about clean installing vaios (boy do they put a bit of crapware there...) but not sure whats best to do..

I dont think I need/want any of the free apps (are there any good ones?) so I reckon I am going to blast the harddrive (I imaged the whole lot with another backup prog)

Whats the best strategy for this? i.e. whats best for getting drivers etc?

I noticed some files in c:windowsdrivers (an exe and a inf diretory, not sure which is for which) should that contain all I need?

Will I have issues with sony system stuff?

Also what about registering it? I guess there will be no issue as far as warranty is concerned (as said, it is a proper legit win 7)

Sony :: SZ750 Win7 64bit Clean Install

Oct 23, 2009

SZ Series Windows 7 Clean install (32bit and 64bit)

Primarily for the SZ750, but works most other SZ models.

Yes, it's long, but it overs a lot and makes it very, very simple.

A Note about the "new" Sony utilities on their website.
Don't bother, you end up with FAR less functionality than you will with this guide. Sony simply put up utilities that work with Windows7, they didn't check to see if there is a driver to allow them to work.

Contributors who helped fine tune this guide:
Rachel, James007bond, Jtravers, Jupillam, Aralos1999, CKF92

Status:
32bit 100% working Use the Vista drivers and Utilities.
64bit 99.9-100% WWAN is possibly working (depends on the model, see below under issues)....................

Lenovo 11e E/Edge 14 :: WiFi Drivers On A Fresh Win7 Install?

Aug 29, 2012

I've recently formatted my hard drive and put my own copy of Win7 on my Thinkpad Edge 14 (0579-A62). There's no more recovery partition. After being surprised that Win7 didn't have any built in drivers for the display or WiFi, I plugged an ethernet cable in and went to the Lenovo support site. I tried all of the Networking: WLAN drivers but none of them let wireless work. I installed the Intel PROSet software and it just says "Driver is not installed" so I'm assuming it doesn't have anything to do with the WiFi key on the keyboard.

Acer :: Win7 Won't Install On Vista Laptop 5630 Black Screen With Cursor

Dec 1, 2009

our laptop keeps throwing a flakey when trying to install Win7 Ultimate over the current crappy Vista OS.

Laptop passed the compatibility checker no probs & has all the updates installed, but every time we try, we get either

1. windows 7 install failure message then black screen with cursor

or

2. straight to black screen with cursor.

This is even after changing to the low res setting that is mentioned so often when googling the issue.

I've looked on the Acer site, but it says if I got it from pc world I should take it up with them?

Anyone here have any advice to get it to work, or should we just smash the laptop off a wall?

HP Pavilion Dv6-7007tx Display :: Standard VGA Driver Error On Fresh Win7 Install

Aug 25, 2014

OS: Win7 64Bit
Product : b0p18pa#ab4
Model: dv6-7007tx
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT 630m
 
On fresh install of W7 I have 2 instances of "standard VGA graphics adapter" one that is "installed correctly" (IDs below):
 
PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103C&REV_09PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103CPCIVEN_8086
&DEV_0166&CC_030000PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&CC_0300

One that is showing as an error:

PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&SUBSYS_181B103C&REV_A1PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&SUBSYS_181B103CPCIVEN_10DE
&DEV_0DE9&CC_030000PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&CC_0300

After trying multiple times (both automatically and manually) to install the Nvidia drivers it shows an error saying "you must install  an Intel driver first".  I realize this is the HP forum, but i've tried contacting Intel with no luck on top of trying every Intel driver that looks even remotely relevant. (most of which error while installing mentioning my computer lacks the requirements for the install).
 
I've tried updating the drivers automatically through windows on top of disable/uninstall and restart, but the same problem keeps arising.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV2 1010eo And Win7

May 13, 2009

I have the HP DV2 1010eo. It's got the AMD Neo and ATI 3410 GPU, 2GB ram and 500GB HDD.

First thing I did when I got it was to instantly install Win7 on it, because I read the OS performs alot better than Vista, and it was a great oppurtunity to not having to sit and remove all the bloatware from the Vista installation.

But Win7 runs really really really bad. The Aero is very slow when the windows have to slide open, it doesn't do it smoothly but lags it open, and everything just doesn't feel as smooth and fast as it does with Vista installed on it, which is weird since Win7 should run better i guess.

My main concern was that I just needed to update the drivers, because I remember vista running slow and laggy on all computers I've worked with, untill the correct display and chipset drivers are installed. So I installed the Catalyst beta drivers for Win7, and it installed the GPU drivers, but didn't install anything for the north- or southbridge, and Win7 still ran like crap.

It did score the same scores as Vista do in Windows experience, so how come Win7 still runs a lot worse than Vista on the DV2?

HP/Compaq :: How Do I Preactivate My Win7 Upgrade

Nov 13, 2009

When i was on vista i used orev's activation backup and restore whenever i made a clean vista install. Now when i got the windows 7 upgrade from HP i have no idea how to do the same. For now it's activated with the win7 home premium key on the upgrade dvd. Does anyone have any idea how to preactivate win7 hp?

As i understand 3 things are necessary for preactivation:

1. SLIC 2.1 bios with key - Got it
2. HP OEM certificate for win7 - Missing
3. HP OEM-SLP key for win7 home premium - Missing i think

I guess i need the hp oem certificate and hp oem-slp key for win7 homepremium - can i contact HP for it or can a good sole on this forum email me a copy?

HP/Compaq :: HP DV6 Mobo Swapout ->Recovery Vista 32 ->Win7 64

Oct 6, 2009

Would like to get my ducks in a row as to doing this and see if there's some problems i don't know about or better ideas of how to go about it.
Hp Pavilion Dv6 - vista 32bit

1)Have a new mobo on its way,4650 GPU mobo,taking out a 4530 GPU mobo.
As i understand i install the mobo and reboot using the F11 key which will hopefully have the system recognise the new mobo ok & install vista 32 all back to system default OR let me create recovery disc's with the new mobo "tattoo" recognised to do the same.
Correct or not?

2) The FREE upgrade to Win7 cost's $39 to ship to South Africa + waiting time so i'm probably just going to buy a retail copy of Win 7 and install the 64bit version.
Installing that will no doubt reformat the HD removing whatever HP has put there so before i do that should i collect what win7 drivers i can and drop them on a usb drive prior or do you think win7 will be able to load enough drivers to allow me to download drivers once its installed?

3)Is there any things HP have got hidden on the HD that reformatting is going to cause an issue with?

I guessing the recovery partion will get wiped.

HP/Compaq :: HDX18T Bluray Players Freezes Vista64 Or Win7-64

Dec 20, 2009

I am having trouble playing bluray discs on my HDX18T. The result is the same whether I'm on Vista64 or Win7-64. I would put in a disc and it would launch the HP DVD player. When navigating through the disc menu, the entire computer would freeze at random spots and there's nothing I can do but hold the power button to brute-force a reboot.

I have NOD32 and Outpost64 installed.

HP/Compaq :: DV6563CL W/ Win7 64 BitFan LOUD At Start Up Or After Sleep- Maybe Nvidia Driver Related

Aug 12, 2009

Laptop: DV6563cl (Intel Core 2 Duo T7300, 3GB RAM, 500GB/7200, 15.4 inch, Win 7 RC 64bit, 128MB 8400m GS)

I recently bought a 500GB/7200 RPM hard drive to my laptop and I decided to install Windows RC 64 bit. Before doing the hard drive update, I had installed the 7 RC 32 bit since it came out.

Now, I can't recall when I had the 7 RC 32bit that the laptop's fan was running on full blast after sleep/stand-by. It is also loud when you start-up the computer from a restart or after a shut-down. The fan speeds down to a quiet speed/rpm after...I'd say 2-3 minutes.

I installed everything listed on HP's website for my laptop (drivers and such after installing 7 RC 64bit):
[url]

I noticed that the Nvidia driver on HP's website was not a recent one, so I hopped on Nvidia's website to get a newer driver instead (186.03 I believe).

I have my laptop set to Power saving's mode and I only bump it to Balanced when I'm doing something heavy (like iTunes encoding, etc).

I did check to see if maybe my anti-virus program that's installed (avast...AVG didn't install when I went to 64) was doing scans or such, but it isn't. Well, actually I take that back...does avast do a very slow/quiet scan in the background? I see the HDD status light blinks steady, but when I pause avast, there is not steady blinking.

Dell :: M4400, Pre-installed Win7 Ok, Re-installed Win7 Not Ok...

Feb 18, 2010

I received my Precision M4400 with Win 7 Pro x64 pre-installed, and using it for audio recording and playing everything works great. However, since Win7x64 drivers do not exist for some of my audio devices,

I decided to put in a new HD (same as the original, only larger) double-booting XPx86 and Win7x64. So I installed XP on one partition of the new HD and Win7x64 from the CD that shipped with the M4400. Big problem...

Neither XPx86 nor the re-installed Win7x64 are able to deliver anything but crackles and pops and noise only slightly resembling music. Forget about recording...
