  • Cannot install Windows 7 Professional. Problems with partitions.

    I have a problem installing WIN 7 Pro, I think that I managed to install a re - install Win 7 ultimate disc that came with my DELL laptop. As the disc, I guess that for a single use, something happened to prevent its use. Unfortunately I cannot start my new Zoostorm ACPI x 64-based PC successfully because windows will in the repair attempt, but can not correct now.
    When I load the new Windows 7 pro, I get that, where you want to install windows, where
    Disk 0 Partition 1, total size: 100MB. Free space: 78MB; Type: SC (reserved). When click on format gives the warning: the partition might contain recovery, system files or software files important computer manufacturer you. If you format this partition, all data will be lost.
    The detail shows: Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed on a partition formatted in NTFS.  Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is a partition of EFI (ESP) system.
    Disk 0 Partition 2; total size: 128 MB; Free space: 128 MB; Type: SC (reserved). The warning on this is: Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is a partition MSR (Microsoft Reserved).
    Disk 0 Partition 3; total size: 698,4 MB; Free space: 670MB; Type: primary. The warning on this is: the partition might contain recovery, system files or software files important computer manufacturer you. If you format this partition, all data will be lost.

    On the three I haveoptions: Refresh; Delete; Format or load drivers.

    I think I can segment the readers already, so don't want to do it again.
    I can't start windows successfully, cannot use the update option.
    If you have any ideas on this one I would be most grateful. Best regards Steve

  • I am trying to install Windows XP SP3, but get the error number: 0 x 80244019

    I followed all the instructions on the solutions provided, the fix for me did not work and the patch it seems to work (in other words, some of the settings needed to be changed), but when I tried the update for the gazillionth time it still does not work.  I have an old computer HP Media Center - could that be the issue?  It is a circular, thorny problem because I need to update my browser as well, but some of these commands do not work because I have not installed SP3.  Ugh.  What other options do I have? This all started because I had to run the recovery after a crash. I guess that he put everything back to factory default.

    I also download errors when I tried the advanced download SP3 which says [1] KB936929-SP3-X 86 - ENU .exe is not a valid Win32 application...

    Thanks, I had already tried that and it didn't work, but then I saw a tip in an other thread trying to install using another browser.  Once I swithced to internet explore for Google Chrome download worked!  Hallelujah.

    You will first need to go to the website of manufacturers for your model computer and first find out if there are native drivers in Windows 7. A large number of computers that are preloaded with Windows 8 have no native driver support for Windows 7 by the manufacturer. If there is no native driver, you will need to consider returning the machine and buying a machine preloaded with Windows 8 Pro with downgrade rights to Windows 7 Professional. Or look through the catalogue of manufacturers for systems already preloaded with Windows 7, usually the business sector will have these options.
