Cannot boot to Windows media. I am trying to install Windows 7.

try to update xp to 7

I tried to clean my computer, so I can't start with a new version of xp or 7. that won't work. I tried to boot from the disc, but whenever the application screen press any key to boot from the drive of the keyboard does not respond so automatically it starts normally again. I tried to install both while the computer has already started and I got two different error messages. When I tried to install or reinstall XP I would get a message before that something has started saying "no valid system partitions were found. Setup cannot continue. "while trying to install 7 on the computer, I would get an error message saying"Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Check that the installation sources are accessible and restart the installation. "Error code: 0xC0000005. I tried to start own like some answers on the error code suggested but not success. I tried to create a new partition in the Disk Manager storage option, but the only available drive is the cd/dvd drive. I checked the disk defragment area and it shows two local drives with the lines of the letter, but I won't let it defrag or disks I could sure use some help.

Your question is somewhat confusing, but it seems as if you have either a bad CD/DVD player or you don't use Microsoft installation media.

I guess

I tried to boot from the disc, but whenever the application screen press any key to boot from the drive of the keyboard does not respond so automatically it starts normally again.

means that you are trying to boot from the installation CD (not the hard drive, which is usually what refers to 'disc').  Have you entered the BIOS of your computer (configuration screen) and set the boot options so that the CD drive is at the top of the list?  If not, do so and then see if you can boot from the CD successfully.

Is there a Microsoft hologram on this topic your XP installation CD?  What your DVD of Windows 7?

When you wrote that you "tried to clean my computer", did you mean you have already formatted the hard drive somehow?  If so, that would explain the "message"no valid system partitions has been found,"but seems inconsistent with your statement that"it automatically starts normally again.' "

Your computer is currently usable?  If so, what operating system is installed?

You might want to look at these two sets of guidelines to do a clean install of XP.  The first includes screenshots:

  • Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error trying to install it. The system cannot find the specified file.

    Original title: Windows encountered a problem installing the software driver for your device...

    Arrrrgh!  Had a terrible time trying to get the scanner function works on my Epson Stylus CX7000F.

    I get the too common but seemingly irreparable "Windows has encountered a problem installing the software driver for your device...". Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error trying to intall it. The system cannot find the file specified. "

    The job of printer/copier/fax end but not go on the scanner.

    I tried the 'fixes' to epson.com repeatedly with no luck.  This includes their reccomendation uninstall/install several times, trying even to this process in safe mode and clean boot the.

    I ran the program to 'fix' Microsoft ATS with no luck.  It has detected the error and said that the problem has been resolved, but guess what?  No, it isn't.

    I clicked on install update driver/driver from Device Manager.

    I tried the work around, eliminating the "LowerFilters" of the registry.  Guess what?  You have it, no luck.

    So, before I go and buy a new printer/scanner, with no guarantee that they will work.  Does anyone have another suggestion?

    I am running Vista, 32-bit.

    You can also try and replace or install the ntprint.inf file.

    I had a similar problem on a Windows 7 PC and noticed that this file was not present.  I just copied the file from a different PC Win7.  The printer, I tried to install was a Brother MFC-J410w.

    The file can be found here C:\Windows\inf

    Hello

    I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit included with the computer.  I installed Fedorah and it works on my computer.  When I installed it, but I had my hard drive partion.  I left most of the hard drive (about 400 concerts) as it was, when I booted up Fedorah worked well and gave me the option to boot or windows.  When I started in the window, however, it wouldn't let me start my computer, it says I have a problem with my drive.  With XP, it gives me no problem, I didn't ignore the disk check, but with Vista for some reason it doesn't let me start.  It gives me a few options of restoration to the previous status confuses the computer he says I manually type in which windows in the command line.  I don't have my windows CD, the only other option that I have that seems to work when I click it is restoring to factory fault which I don't want to do because I don't want to lose all my files.  Please tell me what I need to do.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

  • Get Win8.1 Pro with Media Center in Dual Boot with Windows 10 Pro

    In December of 2012, I bought a new Dell XPS12 running 64-bit window 8.  Later, I bought "Win8 Media Center Pro Pack" for Windows Media Center.  Later, I upgraded to Windows 10 pro and lost Media Center.  Given that I had a legitimate copy of Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, I would like to re - install in a separate partition.  I was able to clean install Win8.1 in this partition using a flash drive and the MediaCreationTool.  He did not like my product key OEM Win8, and he didn't like my WMC Pro Pack upgrade key, so I installed using a KMS key that is freely available online.

    Clearly, I go about it the wrong way.  I'm happy to start again and install Win8, then upgrade with my pro WMC pack key, but I do not know the mystical incantations necessary to get there.  Since I had legitimately a Pro Win8.1 with instance of Media Center, and I my self Win10 product key after upgrade, I can't imagine that such a dual-boot configuration would be illegal.  Can someone please help?

    Thank you

    Loki

    Hello

    Eventually your 8.1 installation using KMS will be disabled.

    1. cannot use keys hacked to enable long term of Windows, as you will be taken; It's a matter of time.

    2. the key/license Windows product to describe the operating system, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, etc. is absorbed by upgrading Windows 10 during the installation process and becomes an integral part of the active Windows 10 final installation.

    The license qualifying operating system, either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, etc. cannot be used anywhere else, or in a dual boot with Windows 10.

    Kind regards.

    You can boot from another drive? Maybe that Windows 7 is noisy and so it can t be read correctly.
