    Hi tomgold,


    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    This can also occur if an incorrect device driver has been installed for the DVD-ROM device.

    I suggest that you visit the DVD drive manufacturer site download the latest drivers for the drive and install on the computer and if it works. Make sure you download the Windows vista 64-bit driver.

    If the above, step fails I would suggest that you run the patch available in the link below and check if it works.

    Original title: Windows 10 upgrade options

    It will be possible to choose the 32-bit or 64-bit during the upgrade to Windows 10 no matter what version you currently have? I know there are problems with the upgrade a 32-bit version on 64-bit directly, but it is possible to install 64-bit and have a backup installation files in the Windows.old folder.

    If you are currently running a 32-bit version of Windows 7 and you want to migrate to 64-bit Windows 10, you will need to download the 64-bit Windows 10. ISO and make a custom installation:

  • UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME during the upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows Vista

    I'm getting an unmountable_boot_volume during the upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows Vista.  It occurs after Windows 7 software loads and restarts.  If I restart the computer, I have the option to start the upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows Vista.  If I select Windows Vista, the computer restarts without problem.  If I choose Windows 7 Upgrade, I get the blue screen of death with the unmountable_boot_volume error.  Of course, nothing wrong with the boot volume because Windows Vista starts without error.  The boot drive is 1.5 TB.  Any suggestions on how to accomplish the upgrade to Windows 7?

  • Qosmio X 505-870-can't turn off and nothing on the monitor

    I wasn't doing anything particularly interesting when my computer just turns off randomly. I pressed the power button to turn it back on, I can hear the fan and things of the machine but nothing appears on the monitor. I pressed on and maintained the power button to turn it off and try again, it does not turn off. He is stuck with the computer on but a blank screen.

    Don't know what to do, I can't turn off, and he's not doing anything.
    Could try to put the recovery disks to see if it's nothing, but I'm worried about the files I have saved on the desktop (stupidly)

    Hi colhyena,

    I agree with Akuma. The same instructions posted by Akuma I found here:
    [What steps must be followed if your Toshiba laptop does not start? |]

    So that s what you can do and if it s does not you need professional help of an authorized service provider.

    Qosmio X 505 is newer model laptop so probably yours is still under warranty. In this case, the repair is free and you don t have to pay anything. :)

  • Error: The installer cannot set Windows XP required configuration information during the upgrade to Windows XP Home SP3 of Windows XP Pro.

    Original title: OEM Windows XP Home SP3 update XP Pro

    Here is a compilation of the messages from another forum regarding
    My problem:

    I'm trying to upgrade a Windows XP Home Sp3 OEM system to
    Windows XP Pro. (There are a few Pro features
    that are not available in the House I now need: (1) the files offline and
    (2) an add-on available for free to Onenote 2007, Top2onenote, requires a Pro).
    I don't want a clean install, but an upgrade. I bought a Windows XP Pro
    Upgrade CD on Ebay that was Windows XP Pro
    Gold (v2002). I'm sure that's true for the following reasons:

    It has been listed as an upgrade, but the CD is not labeled "Upgrade".
    It seems very authentic with all Microsoft holography.
    He came in the standard package of Windows XP (without box),
    and it was sealed.
    The name of volume for the CD is WXPFPP_EN. The Internet,.
    It is the retail of Windows XP Pro RTM (gold)!

    Here are things I tried initially.

    (1) I tried to upgrade to Pro from the purchased CD. It is immediately
    has refused to upgrade indicating the upgrade OS (Pro) is older than the
    installed OS (home)...

    (2) I read about "slipstreaming". "Slipstreaming" allows to integrate
    a service pack with an earlier version of the operating system. I created a
    upgrade XP Pro SP3 with Nlite slipstreamed CD image (and
    Autostreamer later, but it made no difference) from the purchased CD
    and a file containing SP3.

    After you burn the CD and start the upgrade
    (Windows installation), the upgrade process
    product through "information collection."
    "Dynamic update" and "Preparation of Installation" with
    no problems. My computer restarted and returned to
    "Installation preparation". A progress bar called 'Progress '.
    quickly filled to about 90% and the hanging system
    at that time there for about 15 minutes.
    Then, I got the following error message:

    Setup cannot set the required Windows XP configuration
    information. This indicates an internal Setup error.

    This is where I am stuck. I had to leave the installation at this point.
    My drive is starts raining and I had to restore a backup.

    (3) just for the heck of it, I formatted my hard drive and
    reinstalled my original OEM XP Home SP3 OS (no clean up, no user file).
    I immediately used my XP CD slipstreamed Pro to try one
    upgrade to XP Pro and IT WORKED! I need to find out why the
    properly clean XP Home OS upgraded to XP Pro but my pre-existing
    (with the files users, drivers, etc..) XP Home OS does not level
    successfully to XP Pro.

    Another post:

    Yet once, today, I installed a new copy of OEM Windows XP Home Sp3.
    I continue with installation of all the essential and the add-on
    pilots (essentially all my original version). Then, I
    set up a network connection and firewall. With this configuration,.
    I ran the Pro XP slipstreamed SP3 CD. The upgrade to XP Pro
    success (even if the upgrade not configured my graphics
    card properly). I guess my current problem is either the registry,
    the WINDOWS, some user file or parameter file.

    Another post:

    I made a file and the backup of the folder C:\Windows folder
    on my system that is pre-existing (OEM XP Home Sp3). I also did a
    separate the backup the State of the 'system' on my pre-existing system.
    These are added my full image backup of her pre-existing
    system a month ago.

    I did a backup image of my system (minimum fees OEM XP Home
    SP3 with all the original installed drivers over a network configured
    connection and a firewall configured). This system will upgrade
    XP Pro with XP Pro SP3 slipstreamed CD successfully.

    Experiment 1:

    I've restored my minimum system. I then restored the C:/Windows folder
    and the State of the pre-existing system backup system. A startup
    has managed (with a minor irritant). I had to activate Windows.
    Then, I tried upgrading the slipstreamed XP Pro processor. He stopped
    at the same place during the upgrade and gave the same error as before:

    Setup cannot set the required configuration information Windows XP.
    This indicates an internal Setup error.

    Experiment 2:

    I've restored my minimum system. I then restored the system state only
    the backup of the pre-existing system. After startup I was asked to
    activate Windows, but answer Yes to the question would be to disconnect me
    the system. I couldn't get connected to try the XP Pro upgrade.

    Experience 3:

    I've restored my minimum system. I then restored only the C:/Windows
    the backup of the pre-existing system folder. Once again, as in experiment 1,
    the upgrade failed at the same place with the same error message.


    Before the experiment 3, I hoped that 3 experience would succeed so I
    could conclude that I had a registry problem. I'm not sure now.
    I don't know what to try next. Take the minimum system and reinstalling
    my files of the user is not an option that my hard drive has over 200 GB of
    programs! If I restore all files and folders of my pre-existing
    I would still have backup to restore a system state the reliable (read the registry).

    Sorry for the length! If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate your responses.

    Thank you

  • Process held during the upgrade to Windows 7 windows.old files

    In the months I have updated Windows Vista to Windows 7.  Unpon update I found the C: drive was almost filled to capacity and had established that about 155 GB of files are now in a folder called windows.old when I saw the C: drive with explore.  I was able to recover some of the files in subfolders: Documents and Favorites and hoped to return to garner extra of the content I rmembered I could use if migrated on space available.  Subsequently, the files: Windows and Windows.old were more visible.  It would be nice to collect a little more elements of the 'old' files, but of equal importance would be the prospect of eliminating the overhead of the files ~ 155GB now unusable.  (1) how I see these files?  (2) how can I erase what I don't want when I see it?  (3) is there a risk to just delete the program files that are stored in the Windows.old folder?

    Dear God. I can't believe how much a long time ago, I asked this question. Over 2 years later I see something in my Inbox (right now). Honestly, I know more ask this question.

    And more now, I would say try the upgrade to Windows 2000 if you happen to have a product key. Then go to Windows XP. If not, is it possible to restore Windows 98 updates? Perhaps the latest edition of Service causes a conflict with the upgrade. You be left with a clean cloth. I'm curious, that you still have a machine running Windows 98? What is the material/specs on this platform? I can't believe anyone is still out there running old technology like this to use out of it.
  • Some files lost during the upgrade to Windows 7

    Some important files and folders hidden under the folder windows (globalization) on my hard drive. Backup of my hard drive on a remote and then put drive to upgrade to windows 7.

    None can find several files in the same location on the computer and can also find them on the back - up drive.

    Any ideas anyone - desperate


    ·        You said in your application that you have upgraded your system to Windows 7, did you perform a custom (clean) installation or install an upgrade?

    If all your folders and files are missing, this indicates that you have selected the custom option that completely replaces the previous version of windows.

    All of your personal files must be stored in a folder called Windows.old, if you did a custom (clean) installation without formatting the hard drive. You can retrieve all personal files in this folder.

    I suggest you return the item mentioned below.
