I am trying to solve a problem that will probably require a new installation of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. The grace period ends in 3 days, and the next 30 days are final exams at the College. I have 2 licenses (and product key) of Windows 7 Pro, but my drive HARD goes wrong and I don't want to use MAK activation. I will be eventually to replace the disk, but is now bad timing.
If a reinstall is needed, I was going to ask if anyone knows how to set the strategy of perhaps a GPO where Windows is updated automatically in the background and after installing updates, 45 or 60 minutes, then restart. The goal would be to have a computer fully patched when I wake up in the morning.
This is my plan:
Install Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit > Windows automatically updated and plug the Ethernet cable > define a GPO where the computer waiting for 45 to 60 minutes after installation of updates (so the msi may end in the background, and I do not interrupt the installation) > the PC will restart > more update swill be downloaded and installed > wait due to the policy of GPO before reboot > Reboot > do it until it's over. > wake up with a PC fully patched 7-9 hours later.
Is this a workable plan?, and if so, how do I define policies such as delay restarting, etc. to achieve?
The reset did not work. It would be a simple solution. I have a valid license, but I don't want to replace the HARD drive until after final exams are over, so I'll reinstall and activate. I try to achieve in the next 24 hours, so it doesn't keep me from my school work. I must also support and will then replace my files.
Feel free to advanced used terminology. I have some experience.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Another question: should I install a security suite before all updates being installed more than 12 hours, or wait until later? What is the level of risk?
Anyone used Ninite to automate the installation of other programs? Is how safe it?

I have a laptop HP Envy M6 and it came with Windows pre-installed on it 8.1. I always do a new installation of Windows, whenever I have buy a laptop that I hate all the bloatware and stuff which they pre-install on it.
Unfortunately, when I did, I found that the drivers on the HP website do not work for some things, especially my wi - fi.
In Device Manager there are three things that make their appearance as having a problem:
PCI\VEN_168C & DEV_0036 & SUBSYS_217F103C & REV_01
ACPI\VEN_HPQ & DEV_6001
ACPI\VEN_HPQ & DEV_6007
If anyone can provide me with some drivers work, I would be incredibly grateful. I called HP and they told me all I can do is to pay $40 for a CD delivered to me so I can reinstall the version of bloatware, and I really want to do. I want to use my real version of Windows 8 and not pay for something I don't even want.
Nevermind, I fixed it myself by reading old son of Paul_Tikkanen
and found the diver that I needed, and now I don't have to pay $40 for the version of bloatware. Yay!
Thank you Paul!
I tried it twice. I install Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit on a ThinkPad T61. After installation and activation successful Windows, I tried Windows updates. The 'check updates' never ends. After the first installation of Windows, I tried all sorts of bugs found either here or other Windows Help Web sites, does not. So I reinstalled Windows, but with the same result.
After that the first installation was impossible to install updates, I received the Windows Update stand-alone Installer and downloaded the stand-alone files for updates. Would install things like IE updates, but no security update would install, as well as most other updates. Yet once, just standalone Setup would continue to search for already installed updates without ever ending.
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?
Thanks for the comments. It's good to hear that you have actually solved the problem.
Attempted recently to upgrade a computer running the SP3 of XP to Windows 7. Bought the new FULL version of 7.
Have two 1 t Seagate Barracuda SATA drives on board; Operating system in partition 1 of disk C:. second disc to store data only.
Several unsuccessful attempts to install 7, but with helpful suggestions, others on this forum, (i.e., update of the BIOS, re-formatting drive C to do a clean install, etc.) finally managed to a successful installation.
All right, except that it does not find my second hard drive. I have the disks attached ports SATA 1 & 2, but the system reads them so much as the C: drive. The second disc appears in the BIOS Setup and Explorer as just the C: drive.
Tried to change the SATA port for second drive to 3 and 4 with the same result. It always appears as the C: drive.
How can I get the systΦme can recognize the drive, so it can be assigned to a drive letter and I can access? I suspect that the reformatting of the first disc for installation probably erased some boot sector/configuration info.
A side issue: before attempting to upgrade to XP, I backed up my "Documents and Settings" on an external drive. Now that XP is passed to the computer, can I continue to use Windows Easy Transfer to retrieve all my settings and info from the program, or who's going to screw me up?
Check if the hard drive is assigned to a drive letter in disk management.
Click Start, right click on computer
Click on management of
Expand disk management
Select your external hard drive if its posted here
Make a right click paths and change drive letter
Restart your computer, open the computer in the start menu and see if it shows then.
Ohmuhgod, please help!

I tried: manually update the driver with several other downloads of various products of hp as a poke-and-hope approach; all the different combinations of deactivation/activation of the active devices while trying to install the drivers; install drivers in safe mode; Uninstall and reinstall the software amd chipset driver; HP Support Assistant; A patch of Bios setting parameters by default after a hard reset; and at my wits end, reinstalling the operating system and install all the fresh drivers one by one with a reboot after each... same result.
I've been googling and binging for about ten hours... magical HP assistants, please send me a patch!
I can't install an epson printer. I have install the printer administrator drivers and the installation seems to unfold without error messages. However, I can't access the printer and windows asks me to reinstall the drivers. Why drivers are not accessible to the printer and as an administrator I refused access to the printer? I think I might have messed up the security settings for some of the driver files.
It works for win7 and Vista
I tried to clean my laptop, so I installed Windows7 64-bit using my code, but now that I also donwloaded all drivers, I still can't use easy media keys (as for Windows Media Player, or those who must play/stop music, ect..)
No one knows how to fix this?
I think you forgot to install Toshiba value added Package this package contains the driver for these buttons (lighted) media where you can start Windows media player, for example.
You should check the Web from Toshiba site again and search for VAP also indicated for Satellite A300. Download and install the package and after I restarted the lighted buttons should start working.
Check this box!

This is a computer that I use every day and who usually has a hard drive with WindowsXP SP3. I just want to have a spare hard drive with a new installation of Windows XP on it.
But installation can not. Usually to auto restart after step 'Copy files' of the installation process. The Windows splash screen appears briefly, and then blue screen message, "a problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer. UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"followed a few Advisory paragraph which does not apply because the operating system is not yet loaded, then:" technical information: * STOP: (0x8951c900) 0xc0000185 0x00000000 0x00000000. "
Once he got as far as the Windows Installer screen (one who tells me it will take 39 minutes down left) then a box seemed to read: "Fatal Error. An error was encountered which prevents the installation to continue. Installation failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The Setup logs files should contain more information. "Read the Setup log file:" error: the signature for the installation of Windows XP Professional is not valid. " The error code is 80096001. An error occurred during trust verification. »
Another time, after you press enter in the "WindowsXP installation on the selected element", I INSTANTLY got a screen which read; «An error has occurred during installation has been updated of the partition information on 152626 MB disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi [MBR].» Setup cannot continue. »
Things, that I already tried that did not work:
Using two different Windows XP Professional installation disks.
Withdrawal and tries to install with different RAM sticks in place.
Two IDE 40 son different cables, which work fine on this computer.
Two different Western Digital disks hard two test without error using the WD diagnostic utility.
My knowledge is limited, but that seems to leave only a bad card mother, right? However, as I say, the computer works well with this old install Windows XP on it. He simply refuses to let me do a new installation on another hard drive.
What other steps can I take to get a new installation on a hard drive with this computer?
Thanks to each of you for your attention to my problem.
I spent $4 on a 80 wire cable IDE (to replace the 40-wire cable I used) and I was finally able to get Windows XP installed today.
Because I had done installations in the past with the 40 wire cable, I don't understand why it didn't work anymore. I guess the age of the cable, but I actually had multiple failures with a whole new thread 40 I had just bought. A mystery, but at least I now have a new facility and I am inclined to believe the 80 wire will make for a faster computer.

New installation of Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on a gigahertz 3.40 AMD Phenom II X 4 965 with 8 GB of ram. Printer drivers worked on the same bench while he was running as Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.
After only install FF, AVG, and Acrobat (almost a clean install), downloaded the software HP Officejet full feature and pilot 2012-10-22, Version: 116,98, 28.8 M - OJ6500_E710n - z_1315.exe and tried to install the Officejet 6500 E710a f.
The printer has a manually set static IP and can be ping from the host. Clean Windows Firewall is disabled and stopped.
The web interface using the IP address of the printer comes with all the features works on FF.
Network status shows connected with IP address, hostname and Mac.
However, when installing the network audit is no ethernet connection. Even manually enter his public static IP address or hostname does not solve the problem.
Try the USB, the same question option. I see in Device Manager under other devices HPOfficejet 6500 and 6500 HPOfficejet - Fax with a blue questionmark.
(In the same "other devices" there are 2 Officejet 6500 with a yellow exclamation point - probably from failed network installation).
In the printers and devices window, the 6500 is displayed with the correct thumbnail, but with a yellow exclamation point icon. Law and by selecting the convenience store, Windows comes up with the message that no driver is installed and offers a solution. The correction ends with the error that no drivers not found for the FAX. Re-apply the patch never finds the driver.
Anyone who has met something similar (and a solution)?
Thanks for any help!
After trying to do an install clean-install of 100% and once again, the driver software could not find the printer name or IP address.
Back at each stage, I noticed that I was not using the correct driver! For some reason I D/L the pilot E710n which is for HP Officejet 6500 a Plus e-All-in-One.
Whatever the difference, when installing the E710n for the model does not detect the printer, or via USB or Ethernet.
After you download the right driver for the E710a - f HP Officejet 6500 a e-All-in-One Printer (OJ6500_E710a - f_1315.exe) installation perfectly finished in a few minutes and everything goes well...
You would think, base or USB connectivity network should not be dependent on the specific differences sub-model. I was expecting that a bad driver interrogate the device after finding its IP address and display an error message with useful text.
I started receivine a red message box when trying to get updates... "windows cannot find updates" error 80070490.

Please see the following Microsoft KB article:
You receive an error code "0 x 80070490" when you use Microsoft Update or Windows Update Web sites to install updates:
Warning: Before you perform an upgrade in-place, you must be prepared for the worst scenarios that led to your existing data on your computer being deleted. These data include data personal, settings, information about the hardware and software drivers. In case of a worst case scenario, you may have to reinstall all the programs. Make sure that you back up personal data to disks or other external storage devices before performing an upgrade on the spot.
I hope this helps.
Windows Mail is not refreshing since 09/02/2012. When I try to update using the F5 key, I get the error messages. The only way I can see me new emails is to sign on the web page of my Internet service provider, which I don't like.original title: windows mail is NOT refreshing
It would be useful that Microsoft has put a notice to have several products access our email accounts so that us non-technical people could avoid these problems.
Maybe it's something that Apple should warn the consumer. I have three e-mail accounts and I receive and send all the accounts on three different computers at the same time and have never had this problem. Your case is the first.
(If this is important), I use an Alienware X 51 R2 with the following specifications:
Intel i5 4440U 3.3 GHz processor
AMD R9 270 2 GB
8 GB RAM
1 TB HARD DRIVE
Basically, my alienware has had many recent accidents before I made my own window installation 8.1 via the USB port. I thought it will run more fast and smoother after I have done, but here are a few problems:
1 secure Boot product still "no error of Boot Drives Found" as soon as I turn on the computer. So I have to disable Secure Boot.
2 application opening time is still as slow as before the clean install (i.e. Chrome)
So, is there a procedure step by step on how to perform a new installation of window 8.1? I want this PC to match at the beginning when I first bought.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
