  • "Setup could not read the CD you inserted, or the CD is not a valid Windows CD"

    Well, I'm going to install a Windows XP operating system. It is a upgrade disk. However, when I tried, I get error message saying:

    "Setup could not read the CD you inserted, or the CD is not a valid Windows CD", and it gives me a list of other operating systems.
    This is a new computer, so it is not any previous operating system.
    The manual says I can do a fresh install, but it allows me, I get this error message. Any ideas?

    Hi Branden,

    It is quite possible that the CD you are trying to use is corrupted. Wipe the disc with a clean cloth.

    In addition, it may be due to the fact that you are using a CD to upgrade and you are trying to do a clean install.

    ·         You have an earlier version of Windows CD?

    If so, you need to first install the previous version and then upgrade to Windows XP.

  • Dual Boot with windows XP Pro with 2 HARD drive, error on secondary windows install: "Windows did not start because of a configuration of the disk of the computer problem. Could not read the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware... »

    Hi, I recently bought a new Hitachi 1 TB internal hard drive. I wanted to do a clean install on the new drive (d), be able to dual boot my computer and leave my old 300 GB disk (C :) as the primary windows installation. After physically installing the new HARD drive, I noticed that "new hardware found" and the the brand name flashed in the bottom right corner. I thought I'd see the new hard drive in my computer, but I did not. I initialized the new HARD drive with the computer management window (right click on my computer - manage) and I also formatted in NTFS (I had to change my printer hard drive letter to assign the new HARD drive with the letter D, but I've made other changes after this step). Now, I could see and use in my main windows on the C: installation. I then installed a windows new copy XP pro with the installation CD I got for my C: but on the D: (Note: I have a Dell computer (and the Dell reinstallation CD) and my current version of windows has SP3 while the installation CD is only SP2) (I also reformatted my HARD drive during the installation of windows to NTFS)

    Now when I try to start on installing the new on my D: I get "Windows did not start because of a configuration of the disk of the computer problem. Could not read the selected boot disk. Check startup disk and hardware access path. "and another line saying to refer to manuals HARD drive and windows.

    My Boot.ini file at this time was:

    [boot loader]
    Timeout = 5
    default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (2) \WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    "multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (2) \WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional "/ noexecute = optin/fastdetect
    "signature (ac516a5c) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (1) \WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional own "/ noexecute = optin/fastdetect

    I looked towards the top of this help page, but for now I'm unlucky:

    (The next steps I took by throwing from the Windows CD and go into the repair console)

    I tried to use the bootcfg /rebuild but the line to boot.ini for my secondary HARD drive still does not work.

    He gave me something like:

    [boot loader]
    Timeout = 5
    default = multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (2) \WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    "multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (0) partition (2) \WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional "/ noexecute = optin/fastdetect
    "signature (ac516a5c) disk (0) rdisk (1) partition (1) \WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional own "/ noexecute = optin/fastdetect

    I also tried to change the signature() to multi (0), but it did not work. (or try almost all possible permutations of disk() and rdisk() partition() 0 to 2).

    I also tried to use expand F(dvd-drive):\i386\ntkrnlmp(I_have_a_duo-core).ex_ D:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe and a few other combinations, but I when I login as D:\windows simply, it fails to extend with a message like "could not develop" or C:\windows I get "restricted access".

    I have not yet tried CHKDSK/r, but since I did a clean install on a newly formatted drive... I don't think it would work.

    I've also marked the partition on the D: as active (in computer management), but it did not help me.

    I've done a first installation of windows repair, strangely, I couldn't fix this one... Still does not work...

    My default windows installation yet works very well & I see that windows has been installed on the D: but I'm ideas from how to operate the dual-boot, can someone throw me a BONE on what to do?

    Maybe try to do something with the Boot Manager (whatever it is?) Create a new partition and use it as a boot manager? I don't really want to do this, because if I made a mistake I will be unable to use my computer and dual boot should work without going through all this trouble... But I found this page:

    Could a clean install two HDD help? I hope I won't have to do...

    Someone has an idea?

    PS: I'm not such an advanced user so I need a solution step by step, thanks!

    Edit: I also noted that I can't see my new HARD drive in my BIOS... weird... SATA-0 is my old drive HARD 1 and 2 are my dvd 3-5 readers are 'off' and it doesn't seem to be anything that it is plugged in. I also have 4 bays for internal HARD disks. Now, 2 are busy.

    Edit2: I looked inside my case and enabled the good Sata in the Bios after a reboot it detected the drive correctly. Dual boot doesn't always work well... The fact that it was disable in the BIOS while I was installing the new HARD drive could change anything? Hmm...

    In case I wasn't clear enough: I had a windows XP Pro installed on my C:, bought a new hard drive and installed the same copy of windows on it (d). I think that should allow me to double boot between the two installs different. Even if for some reason I can't boot from one on my D:. Andrew, I do not understand why you so far physically disconnect the other drive, the point of the whole operation is to build a boot.ini file so that the BIOS knows that it y facilities 2 windows and you allow to choose (and not have conflicting problems between the 2 systems), someone correct me if I'm wrong? "Expand" the part of my first post made reference to one of the solutions provided by Microsoft in the first link that I have included in my previous post (but I can't seem to work).

    In addition, it is the procedure that I followed:

    (except I've had the first installation already done).

    Andrew "also, once a new hd is plugged on the pc & running, most of the BIOS will place (them) as 1st priority hd, set the BIOS to do this", you mean that by installing separately from windows on each unit when the other is not plugged in, I could choose what disk to start from defining their priority in the BIOS once they are all plugged back? It's too tedious (as I intend to move frequently between the 2 installs) and requires a computer to other users of the lack of computer knowledge. Unfortunately, it is not a viable option.

    EDIT: I DID IT! Hmmm... Well, I double checked in the recovery console, the path of the new HARD drive with the arc command Scan. Tried to start again with the MULTI (0) in my boot.ini and it worked... I also had my windows install CD in. Maybe that is why I could not start, windows needs the CD to complete the installation? Weird, I don't know what I did to the difficulty it... but hey, it works! Thanks for your ideas guys!

  • Free extractor error - could not read the news SFX

    I hope I am in the right forum!

    I am downloading Gamblock on my laptop, but when I run the file and try to check out I get the error "FreeExtractor error - an error prevents this program to continue - could not read the news SFX - it is probably corrupted.

    GamBlock are several that this isn't a problem with the link, and to be honest I have not had problem with it in the past. I am at my wits end with it but now and wonder what it is that it blocks and think it must have something to do with the system in some way.

    The laptop is brand new

    Any help would be great!

    Hello les150,

    I suggest that you run the System File Checker to see if you have corrupted system files.

    First of all, we run System File Checker to see if you have a corrupt file system.

    Click Start
    Type: CMD, according to the results, right-click CMD
    Click on "Run as Administrator"
    At the command prompt, type: sfc/scannow

    This will check for any violation of the integrity and repair any damaged operating system files.

    Restart your system

    Now run the command chkdsk:
    1 disable any security software before you attempt to upgrade or do a clean install.
    2. make sure that your computer is updated (devices and applications)
    3. disconnect all external devices before installing.
    4. check your hard disk for errors:
    Click Start
    Type: CMD, according to the results, right-click CMD
    Click on "Run as Administrator"
    At the command prompt, type: chkdsk /f /r
    When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and will try to correct them.

    If please reply back and let us know if this helped with your question.

    I'm trying to install Microsoft FreeLancer on Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium edition (according to WinVer: Version 6.1, build 6701, Service Pack 1).

    • Of course, I tried to restart.
    • I checked the DVD is in good condition, even with regard to the attempts to install from the disc to a friend and even went up to compare the MD5 of all files on two DVDs, the checksums match.
    • I tried using the compatibility mode for XP, although according to the report of another user on the statements of the Windows Compatibility Center that this should not be necessary.
    • I ran a full "chkdsk" (i.e. one scheduled for after a reboot, rebooted) and chkdsk reported no error.
    • I deleted all files "di - use ' %TEMP%, immediately after the restart and before you run setup.exe.
    • I've looked at this the EMET tool had an exemption for 'setup.exe' and my tool anti-virus was disabled before installation.

    Everything I try seems to have no effect on the resolution of this problem.

    Can anyone suggest any possible causes of--and, ideally, solutions to-this issue?

    Kind regards

  • How to "Windows did not start because of a configuration of the disk of the computer problem. Could not read the selected startup disk... "on a netbook without a CD/disk drive?

    I did a lot of research and unfortunately havnt found a road toward the front of the detroit to a fix. Long story short... I installed Jolicloud as a dual boot with windows xp on netbook gateway of my wife. This netbook has no cd/dvd drive. Jolicloud wanted to screw up the startup option to not allow me to boot into windows, going Strait to jolicloud without option of windows. I tried to change it via the "menu.lst" and Grub.cfg file (I think) the only value I changed was I think 'boot... ". ' value between 1 and 2. When I restarted, then finally got a startup list (although I don't think that my modification of the value gave me the list, I had already installed manually "Grub" via the cmd prompt. I should have just restarted from there without changing anything else... because when I chose 'windows xp' in the start menu... He gave me a black screen and kept going back to the start menu. Then, I tried the "Vista loader" option... hoping that it would some how solve my problem... He asked me if I wanted to run a repair any. I agree with him and when he finished he told me that there is no enough space on the hard disk to copy the files (or something like that) then it froze kind of there. I had to do a hard reboot after that that it froze, then I got the code "Windows did not start because of a computer disk configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk.  check the hardware path and startup disk, please check the windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware for more information reference manuals.

    Again, I have no drive cd/dvd on a netbook... IM assuming that im going to have to return a key USB with windows boot info to load the Manu F2 at startup... But I do not know... Help, please. Thank you
