Dell :: Can I Clean Install Windows 7 From The Re-installation DVD?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm not pleased with some of the bloatware the laptop shipped with, so I just wanted to make sure that I can clean install from the "Reinstallation DVD" my computer came with. The product key isn't on the disc but it does seem to be on a sticker on the bottom of the notebook. Am I safe in doing this? I've already backed up all my files...

Acer :: How Do I Perform A Clean Install

Mar 24, 2009

I've already posted another thread about the issues I'm having with my Acer 5535 however I have a another question that I was meaning to ask about it. If I wanted to restore the laptop to it's factory settings, the laptop I had previously came with a Recovery DVD, this one did not.

How do I perform a clean install? I know there is some sort for recovery partition on the HD, but how do I start the process?

HP/Compaq :: QuickLaunch Buttons Work In A Clean Windows Installation

Jan 13, 2009

I just got a HDX 9200 last week and all this time I've been fiddling with tweaking the original HP image, installing clean Vista OSes (like twenty times by now), trying different drivers, running drivers-update scammers (like DriverDetective, RadarSync, etc.) just to look at the newest version number of the drivers, then crawling the web to manually find and try them, and so, and so on.

Of course, in the need of having a clean Windows Vista installation (since the HP image has a lot of crap, slowdowns, outdated drivers, not SP1 slipstreamed, etc.) I had to start from scratch.

After installing the clean Vista setup and all the drivers, I found that the QuickLaunch buttons were given me problems. What happened is, at the end, that everyone of them works BUT the TV button. I'm running on the QuickLaunch Buttons drivers 6.40, also QuickTouch installed for OSD, and QuickPlay 3.7 (updated from CyberLink) and still, when touching the TV button, nothing happens. Not even a click is hear like with the others. The strangest thing is that, if I turn the computer on by pressing the TV button instead of the power, it boots... and then it opens the TV module in the QuickPlay app.! Just as it should!................

HP Envy M6-k025dx Networking :: WiFi Connection Keeps Dropping On New SleekBook?

Jan 28, 2014

I just got my new HP ENVY laptop. Product Name: m6-k025dx. It runs on Windows 8 64-bit. I am experiencing sudden, frequent loss of my Wifi connection. When it gets disconnected I don't even get the Connect To slider (which slides from the right side of the screen and shows the list of networks) on clicking the network button at bottom right corner of the screen. I need to restart my laptop to get connected again and after 5-7 minutes, I lose it again.
editing the Power Plan to maximum performance and unchecking "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but nothing seems to work.
The network driver is Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. I have also updated the driver and turned off Bluetooth and ethernet

HP Envy 14 2090 Recovery :: Windows 7 Installation Cannot Find Hard Drive

Nov 13, 2014

I'm installing Windows 7 x64 on my HP Envy 14 2090.
Setup cannot find my harddrive, presumably because a SATA driver is missing. I have tried the supplied SATA driver from HP driver download page for my model, but they don't work. I've tried various others, still no luck.
The harddrive is found by BIOS. The harddrive has been working without a hitch for years, right up until I tried a re-install.
PS: I'm not using the HP recovery DVDs, since these install all sorts of unneccessary software I don't want. (Why do all major laptop producers add this crap?)
Where can I find the correct SATA drivers for use with Windows 7 x64 installation?

HP/Compaq :: Shut Down During Vista Clean Installation

Aug 27, 2009

I have a HP Dv2700 Cto Notebook with the following specifications

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 Ghz,
250Gb Harddisk,
GeForce 8400 Graphics Card
OS - Windows Vista Home Premium

I had followed the Steps in notebookreview.com for "Clean install of Windows Vista" and installed Vista on my Laptop 6 months back and it worked perfectly fine.

Last week, i started facing issues with Vista and the system would automatically Hibernate.

The screen would go blank automatically even while its been used.

So, i decided to clean install Vista again.

I ran the Vista setup CD and using the Vista partition utility, formatted the Primary Parition c: (i have 3 paritions).

I started the setup and after copying 66% of the files. The system automatically shut itself down.

I Had to re-start the setup.

When i restarted the setup, the setup doesnt even start copying files. it shuts down during the initializing setup screen............

Acer :: Get A Clean Vista Installation Disk From Pre-installed

Feb 3, 2009

i bought an acer aspire 8930G, with pre-installed vista (should be OEM) hp and a lot of useless additional software. the note is top, the thing i hate is the pre-installed os. now i want to run a clean vista installation.

reading in several forums about that, but not found the right way to do. so i have some questions.

1. is it possible to create vista installation disk (any kind of it) from data on hidden partition (or other data from the note)?

2. how the data for this disk has to look like?

i won't buy some extra disk, because i have already payed for it as buying licence!

for question nr 3 please check this...

Vista Clean Install on Acer 5520G

3. is it true what cappuchok wrote about bogus licence keys that not working with clean install?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W520 (4284) - Cannot Load SATA Driver For Clean Win7 X64 Installation

Jun 14, 2012

I researched I need the Intel SATA AHCI Driver for performing a clean Windows 7 installation 
I tried:
1. Mobile Express Chipset SAAT AHCI controler drivers from the (a) Intel websites (b) Lenovo website and (c) extracting drivers from running system
2. tried supplying drivers on DVD/CD and USB
3. tried to integrate drivers into Windows 7 Installation using RT7Lite
4. did bios update
5. switched from AHCO to compatible mode
In any case it finds the driver as the correct one (when I click hide drivers that are not compatible, the one remains). But always displays no driver found and doesn't continue setup.
This seems to be a bug!!!
1. Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean Windows 7 installation without recovery?
2. Am I trying the wrong driver, but have to install a driver for a different device first???
I am about to replace the HDD with an SDD and there can not use recovery!

Acer :: 6930G & Windows 7 Installation

May 20, 2009

I've recently upgraded my 6930G to 4GB RAM as well as a 320GB & I decided to install Windows 7 64 bit RC instead of Vista.

I tried a test installation which went OK, with only 2 devices listed as requiring drivers to be installed are the Infra Red Device (which is listed as unknown device in Device Manager) and the fingerprint scanner.

What I was hoping is whether someone out there who's already installed Windows 7 RC and could help me with a guide for what other drivers should be installed, e.g. Chip set, ACHI etc. and whether they need to be installed in any particular order when it comes to installing for 'real'?

I noticed as well that the Acer empowering software was not compatable with Windows 7 (even in compatability mode), but am not sure whether this is any big deal?

HP Dv8110us OS/Software :: Windows Clean Install / Upgrading To Windows 7

Mar 25, 2014

Have an HP DV8110us Pavilion notebook purchased in 2006.  Running XP SP3.  Upgrading to Windows 7 with a clean install.  Ran the MS Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.   This notebook has the AMD Turion 64-bit chip running at 1.8 mhz.  I have 2 GB memory.  Looking through the Win7 options, I decided to order Win7 32-bit, since I'm only carrying 2 GB of memory.  Win 7 64-bit seems to be happier with 4 GB.  While the Advisor shows I have some drivers that need updating after Window 7 is installed, I just noticed that the Realtex RTL8139/810x NIC needs a new driver for 32-bit Win7, but under 64-bit Win7, the NIC is compatible.
Should I have ordered the 64-bit Win7 ?  Or should I look around for a new Realtek driver ?  Realtex has a link to an old Vista driver that should work.  Other searches suggest that a workable driver might be on the Win7 DVD.

Dell :: M4400 SSD Windows XP 64 Bit Installation Procedure

May 13, 2009

I have just ordered my M4400 with an 128gb ssd disk. I already have official windows XP 64 bit so i didn't order an operating system. My question is as follows:

1. with the SSD disk will i be able to install windows on my own? Am i going to need an extra driver like with the SATA drives?

2. if yes how will i be able to load it during the install? will i need nlite or similar software to create a windows installation cd?

3. Has anybody done it and knows the actual procedure? any other recomendations for the installation? Are there any tricks apart from installing the drivers in the order mentioned in the dell site?

4. Finally can i partition the SSD disk through the windows setup like with normal HDs?

Acer :: Aspire 9402 Windows Installation

Mar 9, 2009

I recently got a Aspire 9402 without HD, so I just pop in another HD. However, I have problem installing a fresh XP onto it. You guys might know the answer.

First, I put in an HD with XP installed that worked perfectly on a dell 600m. The Acer gave me a blue screen. This looks reasonable since everything is different.

Then I put in a formatted clean HD set to active, and a bootable windows XP installation CD into either the built-in DVD-burner or USB DVD-RW driver. During the startup, I pressed F12 to select the right boot device. However, Acer always gave me error message, and would not boot from CD. I also tried Windows 7 or Vista disks, still no go.

It seems to me that Acer is different to other brands I have dealt with, like Dell or HP. I am not sure getting a set of recovery Disks from Acer would solve the problem.

I wanted to completely format (as I accumulated lot of junk files over the years) my HDD and do a fresh install using my external DVD writer. At this point my external DVD was detecting via USB option at boot-up. For some reason, I could only replace the WINDOWS folder and all other files were not deleted.

I took my HDD out, connected it as an external HDD via USB to another laptop and did start -> control panel - > Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> storage -> Disk Management: Delete Partition and Format my HDD.................

Sony :: Windows 7 (64) Installation Guide -- FZ280 E/B

Oct 24, 2009

clean Windows 7 (64) installation. My guide is more of a 'bare bones' installation as I only installed what is needed for functionality of the big features. The guide is incomplete. I will continue to update the document as I make more progress. Please feel free to report anything you find that is incorrect etc.

keep in mind this is for a FZ280 E/B, I have no idea if it will work on other FZ models.

I am still having problems with the Bluetooth driver/software and the Wireless Switch Utility (what exactly is this needed for?). I believe the functionality for Bluetooth is dependent on the something to do with the Wireless Switch Utility. However I haven't had any luck installing either option.

There appears to be a problem with the power management. I unplugged the notebook for the first time and the battery went from 95% to 60% within 5 - 10 minutes. Any thoughts will be appreciated. I will be researching for a solution as well.

Below is the attached guide and a link to download the drivers I have used for the installation.

HP 15-g092sa OS/Software :: How To Boot Up Windows 7 Installation

Jan 30, 2015

My 15-g092sa came with the atrocious win 8.1. I need to get some work done so I am trying to install my Windows 7 64 Pro. That DVD has been used for several times everytime I had replaced hardware. It boots up fine on other hardware.However, it will not boot on this machine. I found the BIOS settings and put the hard drive (windows boot manager) in the bottom. Everything else is on top of it and should boot before it. The DVD won't boot, a USB bootable ISO won't work...When trying to install from a running win8.1, the setup won't let me manage my partitions, a crucial reason for me to want to handle the installation myself.How do I boot things other than the bloatware that came with this PC?
