HP Pavilion G6 2270dx OS/Software :: Cannot Convert MBR To GPT In Windows 8 Boot CD On CMD
Oct 30, 2013
Me and my cousin cant convert it into gpt diskBecause i need to restore it into windows 8 again .Because of the 2,usb ports are not working but the 1 on the right side usb port is working. And the lock button on the mouse is not working either.My previous operating system is windows 7 ultimate sp1 64bit. But the available download drivers on hp.com is for windows 8 and windows 8.1(Hp pavilion G6-2270dx)
I have had a Pavillion g6 2270dx for a little over a year (just out of warranty) and when I power up, the message "Boot Disk not found" appears. Along with "please install an operating system" "Hard Disk (3FO). I have tried all the solutions on line without any success.
I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from 8, and it will start up to the main desktop but has a constant loading hourglass running, and cannot click on anything, no icons responsive, only ctrl/all delete. It did say my amd graphics driver couldn't be found. My screen also blinks blue and back to desktop like it is possessed.
My notebook model is hp 14-b051TU win 8 (ORG). The warranty is already expired. My window have problem and cannot be recovery the system. I convert the GPT file format to MBR format for i do installation,I format the notebook to win 7, its run but in middle of the time there show window could not complete the installation. To install window on this computer, restart the installation.
It says "HP Pavilion dv9000" on the screen frame, and says "HP Pavilion dv9700" and "dv9750ep" on the labels in the back. Guess it makes it a HP Pavilion dv9750ep?
It has 2 Hard Disks, each of 150GB; I believe it's 2 physical disks and not just partitions as in the device manager shows 2 ... - WDC WD1600BEVS-60RST0 - WDC WD1600BEVS-60RST0
It came with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit.
My issue is:
I'd like to try the beta of Windows 7, using the 2nd Hard Disk for that. I've been using it mainly for data backup, but as I have an external drive I guess I could make the 2nd dirsk free for trying Windows 7.
My reason for wanting to try Windows 7 is Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Some of my buddies tried it in Windows 7 and are reporting a noticeable performance increase.
When it comes to Laptops, and since this is my first one, I'm very reluctant to these moves - mainly because of the proprietary drivers... for instance, if I want to update my NVidia card drivers that must be made through HP and not through the regular channels - or so I think.
Would it be possible to install Windows 7 on the 2nd Hard Disk and make it a Dual Boot system?
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.
My notebook pc is installed with Windows 8.1 and i would like to dual boot it with Windows 7 using a cd but when i try it ,there is an error saying windows cannot be installed in the selected partitions as it is of GPT format.
I've bought the Pavilion 17 - f002sm, and instaled Windows 8.1 on it... and now when ever i boot the computer, the device manager says the display driver has stoped because it reports an error (code 43)..I've downloaded the driver from this site i had this error, and from the AMD site it had the same problem... the graphic card is AMD RADEON R7 M260.... in the device manager i have a anothe display driver - Microsoft Basic display adapter, i thik these two are in conflict... And one more question, is it possible to instal windows 7 to this notebook?!
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-1107X Entertainment Series notebook. When I turn it on I get an inconsisent series of very loud short beeps nearly always in 3 groups. First group can be 4 to 6 beeps. Second group can be 1 or 2. Third group just goes on and on until the Windows Boot Manager pops up. Once I select the Vista operating system everything appears to start working as normal.
Here is what I have done: 1. Replaced motherboard and CPU 2. Checked and tested hard drive by diagnostic and in another machine - okay 3. Have used a known good hard drive in this machine - same symptoms, no change. 4. Checked and tested RAM stick in both slots, by diagnostic test and on another machine - okay 5. Did a Factory Default recovery - Operating System (OS) behaved erratically. 6. Did a Clean Install using another machine - OS works but same symptoms as above with beeps and Windows Boot Manager. 7. Installed all required drivers as required in Device Manager (after a LOT of problems trying to find the HP driver download support - I had to search for HP Compaq Pavilion dv6-1107AX to find a site that linked to the driver downloads). 8. Have run AVG anti virus, and 3 x anti spyware (Malwarebytes, Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware). Nil bugs founds. 9. Reset BIOS to defaults.
Am also having problems from time to time access BIOS. It takes several attempts but can be gained by pressing F10 immediately after the first screen with ESC option on it. Also have problems access Safe Mode using F8 but perseverance is required and it will work eventually.
just received my new E531 Edge Thinkpad from Lenovo.
Right now I'm not able to boot from CD, it will always boot into the preinstalled Windows 8.
I've tried the F12 method to select a different boot device during startup where I can see the installed DVD RAM drive and select it, but no effect it returns immediately to the select screen.
I've played around with the various BIOS setting disabling the secure boot option and changing the boot order so that the DVD drive is first. Then the system will check for the the CD (you can hear it spinning during start up) but will start into Windows 8 right afterwards again.
I checked with various bootable CDs as well as DVDs but always same effect.
What am I missing? Any other BIOS or Windows 8 settings I need to change for that.
I have other Lenovo notebooks running like the X230, the T520 or an older T61 where booting from CD never seems to be an issue.
As the DVD drive is working correctly within Windows 8 I assume that it is in general functioning and shouldn't be broken.
I have a HP touchsmart envy 15 and I am trying to restore computer to factory default. About 6 months ago, the computer said I could make a boot disc and be able to use that to restore my computer to factory and after I make the boot disc, I can delete the recovery partition as it will be stored on the disc. So I went ahead and make the disc (it turned out to be 4 discs) and the computer deleted the partition. Now I am here trying to use the discs to restore to factory, however, my optical drive isn't detected when the bios is booting. Because of this I need to turn those 4 discs into a bootable USB thumb drive. I have looked all over and there are many different ways of converting 1 disc into usb, but not 4.
I have an acer laptop e1-571 with windows 8. the mb failed ordered a new one installed it. on boot now i get no bootable device. The bios shows the hard drive and its the first in the boot order. If i hit f12 after powering on to access boot options the 3rd choice is efi device windows boot manager. If i select that it boots normally and runs fine. is their a way to boot the machine without having to hit f12 every time and selecting efi device to boot to windows? i tried updating the bios as well.
At first I thought perhaps the backlight went on it, but since then i've noticed a few other issues.
When I power on the laptop everything lights up and I can hear the DVD drive and HDD startup normally. But I get no HP splash screen and the monitor doesn't seem to power on either. Which I'm guessing means it's not posting, cause I even plugged it into an external monitor and it doesn't even pickup anything and goes to sleep mode.
After about 10-15 seconds it looks like the laptop reboots itself and starts up the DVD and HDD again but nothing...it just loops.
Is there something wrong with the motherboard ? I checked the monitor for a loose connection and the laptop in general for any internal loose connections and everything seemed fine.
My guess is the motherboard went and maybe the backlight at the same time...I have no idea...
why my laptop don't show me the CD option in (F9) Boot Menu.
I have to reinstal my windows (8) and I really don't have time to find an USB (I don't have one anyway..), so I have to make it to boot the windows from CD. I don't really understand why it doesn't work, after all, it worked first time when I instaled windows 8.
I search online for solution, but i find only the USB solution. This is not a solution for me I need to instal it from CD.. What if I will format all my partition disk ('till local disk C will delete a part of windows and it will colapse...) -> then will probably boot from CD?..
Safe Boot it's disabled in BIOS (anyway, it don't let me to enable it). Legacy Boot, i tryed with it enable and disable, I didn't saw a chage.
The keyboard is usb and is put in the Main usb port that's connected to the motherbord,i wanna install windows 8.1 but i cant boot from Cd/Dvd cuz of that problem. Dont tell me to try another port i tried all.
I've had my HP dv2200 notebook since Vista came out and yes I've had problems with it, but I've never had this one.
Since two days ago, every time I boot up, my CPU is running at 100%. This is from a full start-up or even out of hibernation mode. After 10-15 it dies down to 5-15% but occasionally goes back up to 100% even when idle.
Besides going to the usual sites I go to, I didn't download anything or visit any sites I'm not used to going to. There was a Windows Update I had in my task bar for several days that I finally installed, but it didn't require a restart.
My anti-virus software is avast! free version (latest version w/ definitions updated).
Under task manager there are two svshost.exe's that jump around from 30 to 50, and Firefox is at 50 or so when I try to run it (which takes 30 seconds to open during the 100% cpu). And when the CPU does die down to 5-15% it says that 'System Idle Process' is jumping up to 95 which doesn't add up.
I bought Hp Pavilion dv6 about 11 months ago. When I tried to turn it on today morning, it didnt boot and Caps Lock light is blinking 3 times.I searched on internet and found out that its a memory problem.
I have owned my new HP Pavilion 17 17-f114dx for only a month and it has worked great up to today. When I start it, it now takes slightly longer to boot up and log in. When I log in, I should see my desktop, but instead, I get a blank screen. I am able to see my cursor. I pressed control alt delete to see if anything looked abnormal and I am able to get to my task manager. Things looked fine to me. I am also able to right click a process and select "show location in folder" by doing this, it does bring up the folder. I can navigate to my internet browser from there, and still get online to post this, but my desktop is not there.
I have not installed any new hardware. The only software changes that I made were an installation of a game and I tried to update my version of Adobe Flash Player which was unsuccessful for some reason. I have tried doing a hard reset twice with no luck and also tried plugging it into my TV and nothing has worked.
Daughter's Pavilion dv6 Notebook will not always boot up beyond the HP screen if battery if fitted
Product number: WR498EA#ABUSerial number: [Personal Information Removed]
Operating system: Windows 7
Symptoms are that with a battery installed, the laptop does not always progress on start-up beyond the initial HP screen, which can be fuzzy at the top. A solution is then to remove the battery and restart on mains, which is fine, but not convenient to always only rely just on mains power. conducting battery test indicates requires calibration
I have HP pavilion dv7 which won't let me in BIOS to change boot order.
I have windows 8 32 bit installed and it keep booting normally no matter which key (Esc,F9,F10,F1,F2 etc) at start up, is pressed or keep pressed.. it wont stop booting and wont let me in BIOS. All it does it that if keys are pressed it will start beeping but then boot anyway.
I want to boot it from USB and install WIndows 8.1 64 bit.
