HP Envy 17 3277nr OS/Software :: Unable To Boot And Install Windows 8.1 From DVD

May 14, 2014

I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it but I'm unable to update it since several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS so I went to the windows site that lets you download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it into a disc (right now I dont have a 4gb usb at hand but is also possible).
I already burned the disc by right clicking the ISO and selecting 'burn disc image' and changed the boot options but every time I turn on my computer all I see is a single underscore and then the regular windows 8 boot screen.
I already visited wbesites in this regard and I've read things like the windows 8 UEFI thing (not on my laptop since I've upgraded from w7) and the security settings on the BIOS but none of them seem to fix the problem.
Additional details:
Oddly, when trying to open the burned dvd it only says 4.37gb out of 4.37gb, do you think my dvd drive might be damaged?

HP Envy 17 J000eb OS/Software :: Unable To Install Windows 7 On Notebook

Apr 6, 2014

I have this HP envy 17 j000eb notebook with Windows 8 that I really would like to get rid of.
I managed to install Windows 7 on it, but it doesn't recognise some hardware.
Luckily audio and video works as well as the touchpad and DVD-rom, but I don't have any of network adapters installed, nor USB, and I still cannot find any drivers for them.
It shows a dozen of pieces of hardware needed to be installed.

HP OS/Software :: Envy Dv4 - Unable To Activate Windows

Jun 11, 2014

Basically, friend bought the laptop and got viruses on it.  I went and reformatted the hard drive and installed Windows 8.1 and have no way to activate it now as there is no license key sticker anywhere to be found.
Is there any way to activate Windows point without buying another retail copy of Windows 8?  Seems ridiculous that they would move to this method of having a SLIC BIOS with an inserted key that you can't activate off of.

HP Envy TS 15 J057c OS/Software :: Unable To Update To Windows 8.1

May 26, 2010

Have an HP Envy Touchsmart 15-j057cl. I am unable to update to Windows 8.1. I have done the following:
1. Installed all windows updates.
2. Gone to HP support page for machine and installed all driver updates.
3. Run Windows compatibility manager - no issues identified.
4. Removed preinstaled Norton. No virus software enabled.
5. Attempted update from Windows store.
6. Black screen.
Reverted to Windows 8. Windows reported various error messages across various attempts including:
0xc1900101 - 0x3000D
 Then - 
1. Disabled Ralink bluetooth and wifi drivers
2. Attempted windows 8.1 update from windows store
3. Black Screen
Reverted to windows 8
I've tried very hard to ensure I've gotten all of the latest drivers and BIOS, including chipset drivers. I have not installed any other software. I've also disabled any driver that I can afford not to have, yet the update continues to fail.
I need to get back to work.

HP 255 G1 OS/Software :: Unable To Boot From USB Using Windows 7

Dec 15, 2013

my girlfriend bought herself an HP 255 G1 notebook which came a week ago. She ordered the version with Ubuntu pre-installed on it (not Windows 8). However, the pre-installed Ubuntu had a lot of flaws - the internet connection keeps disconnecting randomly, many updates cannot be installed, random errors keep occurring, sometimes the interface becomes unresponsive etc. Long story short; my girlfriend asked me to put Windows 7 on the notebook, as I am using Linux and have my old Win7 key unused.
So I prepared a Windows 7 USB stick, tried it out on my own notebook (works fine) and then tried it out on the HP 255 G1. The first couple times the USB stick wasn't recognized by the notebook. After fiddling around a bit, I have managed to get it recognized, but every time it is, the screen goes black and starts flickering.

I have tried turning Legacy mode on and off but to no avail.
I have read that this might have something to do with "UEFI", although I am not sure what that is or whether it's really related to my problem.

The very first thing I need to know whether it is generally possible or not to install any kind of Windows on this notebook, because if it's not, I will have to hurry to return it quickly.
Here are the system specs of the notebook. I am using a FAT32 formatted USB stick with a 64-bit Version of Windows 7 on it.

HP Pavilion 15-n209TX OS/Software :: Unable To Boot From CD - Windows 8.1

Apr 1, 2014

I burned two ISO files(Memtest86+ & latest DBAN 2.2.8 CD bootable ISO software ) onto two different blank CD-Rs on two different ocassions by using the in-built Windows burner in my system, also used Cyberlink ISO file burner/Mount as Virtual drive.

Tried booting from CD by following Step 1 to 4 given in this MS link . After that clicked Select a USB Device, then boot from Internal DVD/CD Drive, then OK. It took some time to process & after that I got this screen:
When I entered BIOS Setup clicking F10 and there on Boot Device options, I got this screen:

I'm not able to understand why I can't boot from any CD.

Acer Aspire 5755 :: Unable To Boot To Windows 7

Nov 13, 2014

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5755 laptop with 4GB RAM and 500 GB Disk. Now the issue I am facing is, it doesn't boot up. It just sits at a screen for sometime and then even if we reboot it goes to the same screen which is much prior to loading Windows and I believe just after the POST. I checked in the BIOS that hard-drive was not getting detected. I unplugged replugged ..took it out, put it back in but nothing worked. Than I removed that hard-drive and replaced it with a working hard-drive of my fren's & eventually it booted up fine. Hence this isolates to be an issue with the hard drive. Now my question is that, "is there any upper limit on the size of the hard-drive (as the inboxed one was 500GB)". I am planning to take 1TB hard drive. So will that work In addition to this, is there any link provided by Acer which I can browse and check what all Hard-drives are supported / compatible / recommended by Acer. I have been a big fan of Acer Laptops from a long time and would not want to buy a new laptop just because of this simple hard drive issue.

Dell Inspiron 14R N4010 :: Laptop Unable To Boot Into Windows

Jan 31, 2013

I own an Inspiron N4010 14R dell laptop. When I restarted my laptop yesterday, i couldn't boot into windows and windows logo was rotating forever. So I thought OS was curropted and tried to reinstall OS. But it also didn't work. I couldn't able to install OS. But I could able to delete a partition and refresh it.

Then I ran a diagnosis on my computer and it showed an error code 2000-0146. (saying HDD needs to be replaced)

I called Dell support center and asked them about the issue. They said my hdd nedds to be replaced. So I bought a new 2.5" SATA seagate hard drive and installed it in the system.

But even after that, the same problem exists. But this time Diagnostic doesn't show any error. My warranty period is void.

Dell XPS 12 :: Unable To Boot Any OS - Stuck At Windows 8 Loading Logo

Mar 7, 2014

Dell XPS 12 Laptop. 

Symptoms: Unable to load windows 8, unable to load windows repair, Unable to load windows 8 installer DVD, unable to boot into Linux, Unable to load Linux live CDs or USB sticks, unable to even use an MSdos boot USB. 

Problem just appeared one day, one month out of my 1 year warranty so I began troubleshooting myself. After replacing the SSD, Motherboard, and unplugging every single cable, even disassembling the display and disconnecting the Windows button, Webcam, and touchscreen cables. Still I Could not get any OS to boot. On a whim I powered on the laptop them promptly disconnected the daughter board and sure enough my OS booted right away. Upon further inspection I learned that the Auto-rotate or rotate lock button had become stuck/damaged due to a fall or hard bump. I ripped off the button and ordered a new daughter board online and all is well now.

Acer TravelMate P255-MG :: Unable To Install Graphics Adapter Driver For Windows 7

Oct 2, 2014

I am new commer here and this is my first post. I have recently purchased this nice laptop: Acer TravelMate P255, Intel Core i3-4010U (1.70GHz, 3MB), 15.6" FullHD (1920x1080) LED-backlit Anti-Glare, HD Cam, 4096MB 1600MHz DDR3L, 1TB HDD, DVD+/-RW, AMD Radeon R7 265 2GB, 802.11n, BT 4.0, Linux : NX.V9GEX.004
I would like to change it's preinstalled Linux with a Windows 7 version. But I don't know which exact versions of Windows 7 this particular model is compatible with, because I failed to install the AMD graphics adapter driver from the support DVD disk on a Windows 7 64bit. Do I miss something ? Need I, for example, make any changes in the BIOS ?
I have found same drivers to download, but none of them was successfull for my laptop.

Lenovo Y410 P/Y/Z Series :: Unable To Boot From The Windows 8 Installation Disc Or From The Hard Drive

Nov 6, 2014

I have a Lenovo Y410P that will not boot. The BIOS only sees to PXE boot. It does not attempt to boot from the Windows 8 installation disc, or from the hard drive that I reinstalled Windows on myself. I can boot to both of these on other computers, so I know they are not the problem. I'm thinking it's BIOS or motherboard related, but I'm not sure where to go from here.

HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 Install ErrorHP Envy 15

May 4, 2010

I downloaded and burned an ISO Win7 install file (legal, I am using a purchased key to register it), and wanted to do a clean install of Windows 7 without all the HP Bloatware crap like the sticky at the top of this forum suggests.... and when the install is done its first restart, and is on the Completing installation... phase the second time, it gives me a:

"Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computers hardware".

Are you serious?

Does anyone have a fix for this please. I now have an inoperable, and un-installable brand new laptop. Sweet.

I am installing it via the USB DVD Drive, through a DVD (Not even a USB flash drive problem!). I have tried it twice now and it failed both times. I even tried reseting the BIOS settings to default.

It's obviously a glitch in something, because I was running Win7 on the laptop this afternoon.

Sony :: Windows 7 RC Will Not Install/boot

Aug 16, 2009

I downloaded 2 different downloads, and burned on two different DVDs. I get a screen that says "loading files" (first screen) and they both freeze at the EXACT same spot .

I had vista earlier, then got windows 7 RC so it has worked fine before. I wiped my HDD with killdisk (to get rid of hidden vista files) and had a boot-up windows 7 disk, which worked fine in my test beforehand, but fails now. So I have NO OS, NOTHING. I am on Linux puppy just to have something and post on here,

In my house, my laptop is the only computer with a DVD burner. Formating with a flash drive is difficult because the rest of the computers have XP and I can't disk part them (XP doesn't recognize flash drives in command prompt) Way too advanced for me. So I downloaded windows 7, put it on a flash drive, then put it on my laptop (that has Linux puppy) and burned it onto a DVD again. Same result .....

Apple :: Windows 7 Upgrade Media And Boot Camp Install

Dec 26, 2009

I understand the upgrade version requires a previous version of Windows installed. But given the way Boot Camp works, I don't think its possible to have Windows installed if I want to install Windows 7 (or any new copy of Windows) to my Macbook.

I also know that there is a registry workaround should I encounter problems w/ the Win7 Setup program not accepting my key.

Anyway, my main question is will this upgrade media work for me if I decide to install it via Boot Camp?

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: IdeaPad V570 Can't Boot Windows 8 Install DVD

Nov 22, 2014

I have an IdeaPad V570 that experienced a total hard drive failure (be careful how hard to close the laptop in frustration) I had Best Buy try to recover data and opted not to pay for the recovery after the only crucial data did not seem to have been recovered. Best Buy told me the rest of the system seems to be intact so they could install a new Hard Drive if I wanted it back. They made me offers to completely restore the system at a price but I decided to save money thinking I should be able to restore the system myself. So they installed the hard drive and that was it. 

I decided to go with Windows 8 after learning that support was beginning to wain for Windows 7. I purchased the OS from Best Buy and I am attempting to install it. So far that is not going well. The BIOS sees the CDDVDW drive and the HDD, both are listed in the BOOT menu with the right names. However the computer is not booting from the WIndows disk. I get a message ending with :

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM

At which point it take me to the Boot Menu. I can see the order I have set for Booting is:

3. PCI LAN: Realtek PXE B03 D00

It seems to me that the system is trying to boot in that order but the CDDVD drive is not responding, the HDD has nothing on it so it goes for the PCI LAN and there is nothing for it to do so it returns the error an sends me back to the Boot Menu.
