Okay, So it all started with m computer giving me this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

File: BootBCD

Status: 0x000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It gives me this screen all the time,
Even by trying to enter Safe Mode (F8) and System Recovery. (F10)

My Computer is currently running Windows 7 Home Premium.

So I created a Windows 7 Repair Disk on my Brother work Laptop,
(His Laptop is Windows 7 Professional, Mine is Home Premium)

So I Insert and Boot Disc from the disc,
It takes me to System Recovery Options.

Also, I keep getting this pop up every time I try to do something.

After I pick my language and Keyboard input method, It starts scanning,
It soon gives me a pop up saying that Windows found problems.
I click in, "View Details" and shows me this:

I click on "Restart and Repair"
But a pop up comes up saying, "Failed to save startup options"

After all that it takes me the
"Choose a Recovery Tool option"
For some reason it doesn't show My System Image backup points,
What I also found that at the top it says,
"Operating System: Unknown on (Unknown) Local Disk"
Does this mean my computer doesn't have an OS anymore?

I ran a Startup Repair and of cause it couldn't do anything,
All it said is that it can't automatically fix the problem.

Clicked on "Show Problem Details" and gave me this:

I did a little research beforehand,
It said that one of the causes might be of the HD being disconnected or something.

But on the same picture as shown above. ^^^
I scrolled down and saw this link,
And a Notepad popped up
I clicked File > Save.

And it opened up as if I was on my desktop actually saving something.
I saw all my files.
And saw that my HD was still working.

I even plugged my USB, and managed to copy and paste my files to my USB in the "Save As" box.
So I know that my HD isn't affected.

So all I need to know how to fix this...
The only thing I can come up with is that for some odd reason that the OS deleted itself?

Sorry for all the Pictures,
Just trying to provide as much clarification as possible..

Just yesterday, as I was browsing the internet, my laptop randomly shut down. I restarted it and what I was faced with was the startup repair.
It didn't work, a box showed up saying 'startup repair cannot repair this computer autmatically'. I sent the information.

The problem details said:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200833
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 15
Problem Signature 07: CorruptFile
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Checking the diagnostic and repair details, the first thing that struck me was the fact that the file path of some things was set to D. My hard drive is set to C.
On all the tests that were performed, I looked at the result and saw the same thing:
"Completed successfully. Error code = 0x0"
On root cause it said: "Startup Repair has tried several times but still cannot determine the cause of the problem."

When I open the command prompt from the System Recovery Options, I try to run "sfc /scannow", I come up with the error message saying:
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."

Worth noting is the fact that the in the command prompt, it says: "X:windowssystem32"

I run the Windows Memory Diagnostic, and it says that it can find no errors.

I try System restore from a previous point, but after the system restore finishes and restarts my computer, the same thing comes up.

My laptop is: "Acer Aspire 5551G"
It runs on Windows 7 64-bit.

NOTE: I recall also having seen a message saying something about "ci.dll missing" but I can't seem to find that message.

NOTE (again): Could you please post screen-prints on step-by-step instructions, I am not familiar at all with this.

Thank you in advance




Hi all, I got alot of problems with windows 7 that I would like if anyone could "fix" for me.

Here are my problems:

Network problem:

- Live Messenger is not working because it says there is something wrong with the keyports (proxy/network options)

- Uploading things is impossible, I just get an error.

Example: Uploading pictures to photobucket

- Internet Explorer does not work at all

- Using firefox I have 2 problems.

1. The browser window jumps up and down from time to time, make it impossible to read or anything

2. I loose my connection from time to time, without seeing anything happening to the network icon. I just get an error when browsing

Booting problem:

- I tryed to boot from the CD. I came to the part when the screen is blue, and u see the "Windows 7, just for testing" icon in the down right corner. There it freezes, and nothing happends (I can move the mouse arrow)

After trying the same thing over and over the screen turned black everytime I booted my PC. Then This happened(next -):

- By rebooting the computer over and over I got to an boot screen that said I could repair the startup. And by pressing that I finaly got to the windows 7 boot option meny. It tryed to repair itself but it said it couldent fix the problem

To the point: Can anyone please help me? Im so tired of this that Im actually considering Vista soon




Hello everyone,

I am experiencing a very strange and annoying problem. Specifically around 1,5 month ago my netbook turned itself off because of the empty battery, and i received a bluescreen when i've tried to start it again.

First thing i've attempted to do was startup repair (worked like a charm in the past) but for some reason it took about an hour to load up (all I could see was just the installation screen background), eventually ended with a bluescreen. I thought it could be a hard disk problem, so i took it out of the pc and connected it to my home computer. It was recognised just fine and I could access it without a problem. I've made copy of all the data and reformatted it, then i was able to install windows on it (there was some bad sectors found as far as i remember). After the installation i've noticed one of the partitions is not accessible as the pc was just freezing and hard drive started to make weird noises.

Week after i've decided to replace HDD and buy some additional memory, everything was working fine for around 3 weeks, until today morning. Yesterday night i've turned the pc off as usual (complete shutdown rather than hibernation). This morning i've pressed the power button, was able to see windows loading screen (the one where it says 'Starting windows') and BOOM! - bluescreen.

Situation seems to be pretty much the same, no modes are working (safemode, debugging, last known good config etc.) - all end up on a bluescreen. I've ran startup repair and waited for about an hour to finally get to the screen which says it's attempting to fix hard disk problems (sitting like that for 2h now), but for god's sake it's a new hard drive!

I've no idea what to do, i don't want to completely format my hard drive every few weeks. I did nothing wrong and i've no clue what could cause this.

Hardware specs below:
Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Samsung N150-JA-01PL:
CPU: Atom N450 1.66GHz
RAM: 2GB Kingston 800MHz
HDD: Samsung HM500JJ 500GB 7200RPM SATAII

Does anyone if there's anything i could do instead of reformatting the drive again?

I have already tried many solutions, none of them appeared to work.
Sorry for a lil' bit long drama post.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks!




Hey guys, have some bsods that happen quite often.

These were virtually identical and blamed on memory corruption. Please run the following tests.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Driver verifier

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.




ello, I've run into a problem with my Windows 7 install. For context, I originally had Windows XP dual booting with Windows 7 because I wasn't sure if I wanted to make the upgrade at the time. Windows XP was on my old 300 GB HDD, while I had Windows 7 on my 1.5 TB HDD (with 83GB allocated into my Windows 7 partition while the rest is used for storage).

Yesterday my 300GB HDD died (R.I.P.), and I realize that along with it, I must have still been using that hard drive for my boot loader. With the drive dead, I can no longer boot into my Windows 7 partition, even though bootrec /scanos reads that it's still there.

My issue is that /fixboot and /rebuildbcd both give me an "element not found" error when attempting them. My Windows installation doesn't appear in the list of installations to repair on my recovery CDs. I've set the partition as active via Diskpart and Partition Wizard, but it still refuses to boot. It used to be a logical partition, but I set it to primary with Partition Wizard, so it should be fine.

I have executed the automatic startup repair option 6 times, and my installation still isn't listed under my repair DVD. The repair informs me that my Partition Table is corrupted, and that Windows should work after a restart, or repair will try again next restart. However, Windows is not repaired and automatic repair still doesn't fix anything. It's rather frustrating, because I know for a fact my files are all there and unharmed, but there's simply no way for me to get into them. I'm running out of ideas. I've searched extensively for a fix to this, and it seems everyone can find a fix but me by simply marking the partition as active and running /fixboot with automatic repair.

The only other thing I can think of is perhaps making another partition, throwing a Linux distribution with Grub onto it, using that to boot into Windows 7, and then do a repair install from there. Would that work out? Any better suggestions are of course welcomed with open arms.




my friend's laptop did not successfully boot and it just keep on restarting after the loading screen appears.
The safe mode didn't work either. As well as the installation disk, it get stucked when I press "Repair my computer".
And also, when I press F8 and disable "Automatic restart ...... " I faced this error.

BSOD:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer. for any windows updates you might need.

If problem continue, disable or remove any newly install =ed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advance Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000008, 0x0000000A, 0x00000000, 0x839B28D9)

*** sisraid4.sys - Address 839B28D9 base at 839AD000, DateStamp 45adcfa2

That actually show up on the screen when I disable Automatic restart.. I don't know what's the cause of this problem, my friend cannot remember the last time he used his laptop.

Safe mode and all the options in F8 didn't work either. The installation disk get stucked at Starting set up ( 'cause I want to install new OS on other partition so that I can back up the files hopefully. But suddenly failed. )
I already check the memory using memtes86, no error found, pass only once cause it takes too long. Anyone know this???? Please help.




I've just tried twice to install Win7 Service Pack 1 on a relative's Acer desktop PC - which runs ZoneAlarm anti-virus, but has very little else apart from Word installed.

Each time, the download and install process seemed to go OK; however, when the system rebooted, it displayed the Windows startup logo, but at the point where the logo goes away and you expect to see the mouse appear, it just froze with a blank grey screen. I left it for a while, but nothing happened.

Eventually, I power-cycled the PC and an error message was displayed and a Windows boot selection was offered: Repair (recommended) or Start Normally. Choosing 'Start Normally' repeated the boot and freeze sequence. Choosing 'Repair' started the startup repair procedure, which failed with 'The operating System is incompatible with Startup Repair'. Trying the 'Advanced Restore' procedure reported 'No restore points', although I had explicitly created one before the update, and the update itself creates one.

I managed to fix it by running 'Startup Repair from the original Windows 7 installation DVD.

The PC works fine now, but Service Pack 1 isn't installed. I have had to turn off automatic updates so that it won't get installed.

Does anyone know what the problem might be, or suggestions for a fix?

Failing that, is there a way to disable the 'Service Pack 1' entry in 'Windows Updates' so that automatic updates can be enabled?




I have a 1TB hard drive divided into 2 partitions of 500GB each. On one partition I have installed windows 7, and on the other, windows vista. Several days ago I started getting a blue screen when trying to boot the windows 7 side. It occurs almost immediatedly after the splash screen. The automatic repair that windows tries to do is unsuccessful.

Since then I have been booting the vista partition. I could still access data files on the 7 partition. Today the vista partition doesnt boot either. The error message is something like Sata drive 0 not recognized. I checked the bios and it does exist. The windows installation disk for windows 7 is of no help. I select repair and it is unsuccessful. I select install, and the install disk doesnt recognize either partition. It only recognizes a drive x that it says has 30 GB in size.

I suspect the mbr is missing or damaged but dont know how to repair or get it back since even going to the command prompt on the install disk only allows me to go to drive X. In looking at drive X it looks as though it only has install files on it.

I dont know about the blue screen on the 7 partition but I suspect I did something to cause the vista partition to no longer boot. I dont even get to the startup screen that gives the dual boot option any more. I just get the "drive 0 not recognized" error message and the "press ctrl-alt-del to reboot".

Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!

I recieve a PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILURE. I am experienced in computer truobleshooting with the exception of Blue Screens. Thus, this is my first post in ANY windows troubleshooting forum. I am looking for ANY help so please read all of this since I don't really know what information is critical so I am getting detailed.

I was trying to get Halo 2 for Vista to work on Windows 7 x64 Ult custom build (By trying the following: Halo 2 Windows 7 (workaround) - "System Cannot Find the Path Specified" or "LIVE gaming on Windows failed to initialize" - Games for Windows Live ).
I also unistalled an unrecognized USB driver from device manager.
After that failed to fix my Halo 2 problem I updated my GPU card driver and rebooted my PC.

*ENTER BSOD*

After "Starting Windows" screen appears for roughly ten seconds a "PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILURE" BS appears. The computer reboots (after about 1.5 seconds) after the Memory Dump reaches 100. I do not get any option to boot into safemode or with "Last known working configuration" but I DO get the options to either start the start-up repair or reboot windows normally.

If I reboot normally the problem repeats, trapping me in a boot loop. So I launch start-up repair.

I tried "Startup Repair" as well as System Restore (I tried ALL of my restore points) but get an error telling me "Windows cannot repair this computer automattically" or "System restore was not successful", respectivaly. I can then choose to send information about this problem or not but I get no further troubleshooting options.

FORTUNATLY, I was able to boot to desktop AFTER using the command prompt to xcopy a "bootcat.cache" file from my HP Laptop (Also running 7 x64 Ult.) into my build's system32CodeIntegrity folder in:
- C: (The DISKPART > "list volume" command says this is a 100MB system reserve partition of my main HDD)
- D: (actual 931GB partition of my main HDD that is my Local Disk [I do not know why it is D: and not C: but before this it was E: and my CD-ROM drive was D: so it gets reassigned each time I reboot. [I have even tried the DISKPART > "assign letter=C" command to reassign letter C to this drive but it doesn't seem to help or hurt anything since my Local disk was not C in startup repair but is back to C: now that i have booted]). And
- X: (I do not know what this is but it was the default drive when I entered the command prompt [I believe the default was X:sources or something like that]). I exit command prompt and reboot.

*I AM NOW ABLE TO BOOT TEMPERARILY*

Then and ONLY then will the computer boot to my desktop. A few drivers, such as my GPU driver must be reistalled (I assume this because these drivers were not on my HP's bootcat.cache?).

So besides some missing/inactive drivers I have full function of my PC. BUT WHEN I REBOOT THE PROBLEM COMES BACK AND I B.S. AGAIN. So I performed my fix again and booted to my desktop once more. I have now started backing up my files in preparation an imminent clean install (I am willing to try ANYTHING to avoid this!). While files are backing up I am saving Application and System event logs. (PM me for the logs). Running and screen-shotting CPU-Z and posting this thread.

I do not know what I should try now that I am back at my desktop. ANY help at all will make my day.

Thank you all!

Hello everyone,

I would like to congratulate you first on this great forum.

I have been running Windows 7 RTM 64-bit for a couple of weeks now. I got a key thought my University's MSDN.

I currently triple boot 7, XP 32 and XP 64 on the same drive but different partitions. I also run dual monitors.

I installed the trial version of Diskeeper 2009 and restarted. This is where my problem started. Windows 7 loads ( the 4 particles making the Windows logo), but instead of the welcome screen, i get a a black screen with a cursor in the middle.

Here are the things I tried so far:

Booting into safe mode results in the same black screen with the cursor in the middle.I put the DVD and tried repairing. It did not detected startup problem and to my surprise, it is reporting that it can't find any system restore points. I am sure I had restore points on the computer. It was enabled.I plugged one of the monitors out. I switched video card ports, but with no luck! I took out my video card and ran on the onboard VGA also with no luck.I swapped my ram strips and ran diagnostic tests (no errors).I can boot into XP and see the windows 7 drive from there and access it. (Maybe I can get you dump files that way)I deleted event logsI tried a registry method where you load and unload a hive
I would really appreciate your help since I really like Windows 7. This is the first headache it gives.

Thanks a lot,




Hi, I hope somone out there can help. I've been looking through the forums for a while and I haven't found a solution to my problem.

First of all I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on an i5 system.

I powered on my PC and it gave me a warning about the machine not being shut down properly. I started windows normally and once I reached the desktop Windows freezes, I can still move the cursor but I can't click on anything. Pressing Ctrl alt Del only causes a black screen to appear and I am forced to reset the machine.

Unfortunately I haven't set up any system restore points. I tried running a memory diagnostic with the Windows 7 CD but to no avail. Serching for problems using the Windows 7 disk turns up nothing aswell. I started windows in safe mode and disabled all programs at startup. After rebooting in normal mode the same thing happened, it freezes just as before.

I installed Windows 7 on a different hard drive partition and it works fine so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue.

Can anyone tell me what I can do to troubleshoot this problem? How do I go about testing which program may be causing the problem? Is there anyway I can try and repair windows files?

I would be really grateful for any help. Thanks in advance.




Ever since I bought my new computer and installed Windows 7 64 bit Pro I have noticed that sometimes when I start my computer the startup locks up or crashes, requiring me to restart or it takes me to the system repair screen and running this process does nothing.

I cannot figure out if something is conflicting or what is causing this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need any additional information,




I'm running the startup version of Windows 7 on a new Toshiba NB205. Installed Essentials Mail and Photo Gallery and Mail works fine. Whenever I start up Photo Gallery withing 10 seconds or so it crashes after loading a number of thumbnails. I have repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled Photo Gallery and nothing helps.

Any help would be appreciated. Martin




Hi helpers,

It's a very strange situation I am stuck on since yesterday.

When I turned on my laptop yesterday, that windows did not load properly and came up with Blue Screen of death with this 'Unmountable Boot Volume' error.

After tons of research online, I found so many different tricks to get it working but no luck so far.

I can't boot my laptop at all, I get to the Windows Recovery Page which gives me 2 options:

1. Launch Startup Repair (Recommended) >> This doesn't work, comes up with the windows 7 background with a cursor and stays there for ever, no dialogue box or anything.
2. Start Windows Normally. >> This keeps me putting into the blue screen of death loop.

So, I then inserted the Win 7 DVD to boot windows from there and perform Start-Up Repair. >> That's doesn't seems to be working either.

I have also performed the chkdsk, chkdsk /r, chkdsk /f /r, but NO luck at all. Tried bootrec /fixboot, bootrec /fixmbr. But that did not helped either.

I am not sure what has caused this problem, but it is just doing my nut in now. I got 2 partitions on my HDD, 1 with Operating System with some data under my user profile and 1 partition with all my data.

I am wondering if there's anyway I can get round of this situation and get it fixed, if not then If I did a clean install then WILL I LOSE BOTH THE PARTITIONS or the one with just the operating system on it? Plus, if it's just the operating system partition which will be lost, then anyway to get my personal data out from there?

Guys, your help will be really appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Cheers!




Hello there!

On Friday, I started having a problem with my system, running Windows 7 Ultimate, where I get a BSOD right at the login screen. Computer boots up normally, the blue login screen pops up, and immediately goes to the BSOD with BAD_POOL_HEADER at the top. It then will go back through the boot process, and if I select boot normally (or it times out) the same thing happens.

Going into Safe Mode (with networking) I can get into the Control Panel, Recovery, and choose a restore point. The computer then does it's thing, and boots up normally. As long as I leave the computer on, it runs fine.

It does this if I restart the computer or boot it back up after a shutdown. I've included the W7F information, hopefully that'll shed some light on the problem.

Thanks in advance! Attached Files W7F_31-3-2013.zip (2.35 MB, 3 views) Share Share this post on Digg Del.icio.us Technorati Twitter

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all). There are no memory dumps in the uploaded files. Please do this:
Upload Dump Files:
NOTE: If using a disk cleaning utility, please stop using it while we are troubleshooting your issues.
Please go to C:WindowsMinidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

Also, search your entire hard drive for files ending in .dmp, .mdmp, and .hdmp. Zip up any that you find and upload them with your next post.

Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDumpMore info on dump file options here: Overview of memory dump file options for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Please check to ensure that you have all Windows Updates (you have 137, most systems have 150 or more). It may take multiple trips to get all of them.

You have a 802.11bgn 1T1R Wireless USB Adapter
I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful. We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
05 Jan 2013 - very interesting post about difficulties with the Marvell controllers even when not connected to the SSD drives: https://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cra...tml#post169956
27 Feb 2013 - I'm starting to see much better reliability with SSD's using current (mid-2012 and later) storage drivers. I have withdrawn my objections to using these devices in everyday systems. This device has issues:
sbwtis ROOTLEGACY_SBWTIS000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. This device has problems and must be fixed. I suspect it's GFI Firewall SDK Transport Inspection System Driver - but haven't had time to do much research (I'm late for work right now).
Please un-install it, then un-install the device from Device Manager




Hi i had 2 partitions on my hard drive before installing windows 7, one with xp and the other with ubuntu. I used ubuntu gparted to resize the xp partition to make room and created a new partition for windows 7, it installed fine and it was running perfectly for about a week.

It was going so well in fact that i decided to use it as my main OS which meant giving it some extra hard drive space. So went back into ubuntu, shrunk the xp partition again, and added the new space to the win7 partition.

That completed fine but when i tried to boot into windows it first said win7 encountered an error on startup and i had to insert the disc and "repair computer", this (to my surprise) actually found exactly what was wrong with it and apparently repaired it. woohoo i thought.

after restarting it now boots into win7 fine but when i log in it says "preparing your desktop" for quite a while then goes to a light blue screen (not bsod) and does nothing.

I ctrl+shift+esc'd and started explorer.exe which eventually came up but the theme is the windows classic one and hardly any programs work, they all say "explorer.exe - no such interface supported"
All my files seem to be in tact, i don't want to have to reinstall all over agin!

oo also apart from a chkdsk the first time, xp boots up fine so i don't think it was gparteds fault!

please help!!
thanks




Windows 7 wont boot, says NTLDR is missing on startup...

So I recently upgraded from windows xp to windows7, I went about installing well the wrong way. I Installed windows 7 from the downloaded file onto a empty hard drive I had attached to my computer. I did this all while xp was still running. Anyway it worked and windows 7 always booted up and worked just fine. But NOW!! I removed the attached hard drive where xp was installed and I try to use win 7 but it says NTLDR is missing at startup .
I cant repair with a windows 7 disk because I have problems with my cd rom too!
So I need a solution to repair windows 7 without windows 7 disk .Any Ideas?
I also cant repair it with USB because I cant boot from USB.
Any Ideas?




For the past week or so I'm getting this error message. I've followed the suggestions on another Thread here with the same error. But the problem still remains.

i.e.
System file check - threw up nothing
SO I did a System Upgrade Repair

What I can tell you are:
At the startup I get the error message (as the title states)
IE9 crashes almost immediately when it is opened - I've started using Chrome and there is no problem with that - so far.
I find dragging windows leaves a delayed trail behind.
I've always used hotmail.com. But this switched to outlook.com (by itself) the same time this problem started happening. Also Outlook.com struggles to connect and attaching files to emails is almost impossible. So I've started using gmail.com and there is no problem with that - so far.

The Event Viewer throws up values:
Under "Error"
WMI
Application Error
Service Control Manager
RestartManager

Under "Warnings"
RPC(Microsoft-Windows-RPC-EVents)
User profile service
Restart manager

My computer has stopped working once or twice and needed a restart. You will notice from the attachments that I have 5 screens. Sometimes on startup one ot two screens will fail to connect to the computer so a restart fixes that. Also, I find that the startup has got very slow as the computer has also got slow overall.

I use the computer for trading and reading emails - that's it - its never given a problem for the past 2 years.
My question is: as I have amassed days trying to solve this problem without success and at great expense (not just of time but financially as well - the system is just to volatile to risk using in a trading environment) what would you suggest?
I'm considering to upgrade to Win8 in the "hope" that that would be a comprehensive quick fix - but only as long as I do not have to rebuild my setup (this would also take days). i.e. would an upgrade solve the problem? And, would the upgrade be simply sticking in the disk and when its finished doing what it does will my world be as it used to be [without the errors?]?

Please note I'm computer illiterate - I've spent most of the past few days trying to figure out terminology and what all the acronyms mean (not that it helped). So after all the hassle, whatever I do now I would like it to be the most robust solution. I would be very grateful for any suggestions or solutions that you might propose. (for the technically inept)

Thank you in advance
