Pavillion g7: System Restore ssd


I've read several questions regarding the problem that I am facing but nothing exacyly simmilair.

My HD in my Pavilion g7 series crashed in December last and appearantly data is also lost. We have tried everything.

Today a new HD has arrived, a Samsung Evo 250 GB Solid State Drive.

Using the recovery of this recommended HP CD to me I usually managed to format my laptop perfectly.

Now the process seems stuck at 46%.  (after you insert disc 2 to 25%)

I closed it after 30 minutes and taken over the whole of the process since the DVD will not eject.

I tried another number two recovery disk... (since I had 2 of each)

Now he's stuck again, this time on 42%.

I don't know what could be the problem and what is recommended.

I read something on the bios... or maybe that stuck to the partition, but this way, I can not install windows 7 on an SSD.

Any ideas anyone?

Thank you in advance!


Mista B says:

Restore will not work on a drive smaller than the original.

Seagate is a common portfolio for installation problems too.

Key will work on all the language versions or 32/64 bit & must just be same version such as Home Premium for example.

You will be able to format the drive in the stages of installation.

Google, installing windows 7 as loads of step by step guides.

You can also download a disc/usb minitool partition Wizard bootable version that actually very good preparation of the disc.

Recovery media will work with a 160GB SSD at least.

  • Image of Windows 7 on ssd smaller system restore

    Hi all.  I just wanted to share this guide on how to install windows 7 on an external drive to backup and restore the system image onto a smaller SSD using nothing but free tools and 1 non-Microsoft tool.


    CD Recorvery Windows 7 system.
    GParted Live CD - available on sourceforge
    First backup the existing drive, using Windows Image backup system.  It's pretty basic, and here are the instructions:
    Now that you have the shrink backup the Windows installation partition (partition system reserved + free space must enter target SSD).
    Shrink the Partition of Windows 7 to fit the target SSD:
    Do right click my computer > select Manage > click Disk Management > click with the right button on the windows installation partition (usually c :)) > select "Shrink" > select the maximum allowed by Windows.)  When you're done check to see if this partition with the system reserved partition fits under the size of the target SSD.  In my case I tried to use the Windows disk management, but it would not diminish beyond 100 GB even if there was enough free space, and that was bigger than the 64 GB ssd drive that I wanted to restore.
    Shrink Windows 7 Partition with GParted Live CD if above fails:
    Restart the computer with the Live CD.
    Simply press 'Enter' on all the guests to select the default Options or, if necessary, change options to work with your hardware.  The Live CD will start with GParted already running.  Right click on the partition of Windows Setup.  Select "Resize/move" > click on the right edge of the partition and move it to the left to reduce it until it fits the target SSD. Once you have set the desired size, click "resize/move". Click on the apply"" button. Click on the button "apply" once more to the warning screen pop.  Wait while the partition was resized.  In my case, it was about 12 minutes.  You should see '0 operations pending' on the bottom of the Gparted application window.  Once he finished, double-click on the "Exit" icon on the desktop.  Select "Reboot".  Remove the Live CD, and press "enter."
    When restarting you will probably see a Windows 7 disk management screen.  Let him complete the audit.
    Once restarted in the Windows 7 computer desktop with the desired partition size run another Image of the backup system this time with the desired partition size.  Place the Windows 7 System Image Restore CD and stop.  Unplug the power cord at the back of the computer.
    Install the SSD.  Reboot with the Windows System Image Restore CD.
    Then follow these steps.
    Unfortunately, you will probably get a message stating that the image of the system cannot find a suitable disc.  In this case you will be lifted to some more recovery options which is the command prompt.  Launch the command prompt.  In the command line type in
    At the diskpart prompt, type
    Select disk = 0
    retail disk
    to ensure that it is the SSD you selected.

    Now type
    I had to reboot the computer, because I couldn't always restore the system image without rebooting.

    Now repeat the procedure of restore system image.  In case you forgot:
    At this point, the image windows 7 system restore worked!
    After the reboot of Windows 7 on SSD turn trim if supported.
    Click on the Start button and type
    Right-click the CMD and run as administrator
    Check if the Trim is turned
    fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify (credit
    fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0
    to activate the Trim.


    Thanks for sharing the information.

    It would be useful to others to create the installation windows 7 on an external drive to backup and restore the system image onto a smaller SSD drive.

  • System Restore / level Specs

    Hi all

    I have a two part question.

    This first part is I have a MacBook Pro that has begun to slow and there a bunch of unnecessary stuff slowing down and too much space.  I would like to do a system restore back to factory settings.  I have a MacBook Pro 13-inch, mid 2010 running OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 (I think originally, it came with Snow Leopard).  I need the installation CD to complete the restore from the MBP with Snow Leopard and I do not think that it is supported with online from Apple Downloads?  Or I would be OK end restore download a current OS X from Apple because I am running Yosemite?  I am sure that I have the CD somewhere, but can't seem to find it right now as I am moving.

    Second, I think I can help increase the performance of the MBP after restoration by installing increased RAM and an SSD hard drive.  Currently, I have 2 2 GB RAM chips for a total of 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, 250 GB HDD, processor Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz and NVIDIA GeForce 320 M with 256 MB.  I think I want to install two chips of 4GB for a total of 8 GB of RAM. Also install a SSD hard drive,

    Upgrading the RAM and the hard disk in this manner would help improve performance?  I like to keep the MBP for a little longer until I can get a new one.

    Thanks in advance for your comments because it's the first time I try something like that.  Yes, I have class time machine backups as well.

    Yes, helps to increase the RAM - new version of the OS needs a minimum of 4 GB - 8 would be much better. Regarding your relocation, was your updated firmware to allow for the recovery of the internet? If Yes, you can (or not) have a problem again with your installation DVD - I got an iMac 2010 and tested different scenarios; the installation DVD works once out of 5 tries; given that the firmware has been updated, I tested the recovery of the internet (Command + Option + R) and installed Lion (10.7). You can update from there. Here's the info on who could be updated of the machines - you can check your:

    On the updates of the EFI and SMC firmware for Mac computers with processor Intel - Apple Support

    If you just use recovery on top of what you have, then you will not get rid of the unwanted installs, files, etc. as it simply installs the operating system on your current OS - all third party files are still there.

    If you decide to remove/reinstall, make sure you have a first backup you will lose everything when you delete it.

  • Do not click Next in the system restore. A similar problem here not found.

    Hi all! I'm trying to restore my HP Pavillion 1650 XP at an early stage a system restore starts fine but... When I get to the screen just after that I selected the date to restore, but before it will re-start and I click Next nothing happens. The box just stays there and I can click then everything I want but nothing happens. I am running XP SP2 with all the latest updates installed.

    Thank you

    Please completely read this broad message about restoring the system and begin by the two scans mentioned in the last part:
    You are a Service Pack behind (you should be on SP3).
    Have you ever used the system successfully restore in the past?
    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..
    What is the issue that you are experiencing that you think that the system restore will be remedied (or you are just convenient)?
    Some tools Anti Virus 'protect' your system so that they will not restore the system work properly.
    For example, if you use Norton/Symantec products, you will see a message like this:
    Restoration incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored...
    It is also a popular Symantec problem (well, I'll be polite and call an "undocumented feature"...), they wrote an article about it:
    According to what you use for malware protection, you may need to disable the product temporarily, do the system restore and then turn the products light up again when the system restore is complete.
    Sometimes you need start your system in Mode safe and so that your protection programs are not running, and then do the system restore.  Tips from Microsoft in some of their articles that if the system restore does not restore your computer, start in Safe Mode, and then run the system restore.  It works for some configurations.
    System Restore is sometimes so afflicted or Restore Points are suspicious, the best solution is to reinstall your system restore.  This will remove the old Restore Points, but sometimes it's the only way to fix a broken system restore.  You don't have to reinstall XP, only the part of system restore.
    That can leave you with your problem of unspecified origin that you hope the system restore will fix (using a system restore is not equivalent to 'fix' the problem though).
    Give these ideas some consideration if they apply to you.
    Sometimes malicious will afflict your system restore to prevent you to find and remove malware.  It would much rather you trick into thinking that you need to repair or reinstall your XP when it is not necessary.
    No matter what you use for protection against malware, I do so and then only begin to solve any problems:
    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs can solve any problems:
    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):
    It can be uninstalled later if you wish.
    The scans by operating clean, reboot, test and we can fix any other issues.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • How to change group policy for the system restore will create restore point

    I recently installed an SSD with windows 7, it's the default OS and hard drive on a system dual boot. I also have my old HHD with windows vista home premium. I had problems using the restore of the system with the SSD drive and read on a forum that the restoration of the system causes problems when it is used on an SSD. I have disable restoring the system to the SSD, but still he had checked to allow restoration on the vista disk and a 500 GB drive, I have use for storage.

    I managed to create a restore point when you are using windows 7 OS, but when I used my vista drive, and wanted to create additional restore points for two HHD disks, it does not allow the creation of restore points by group policy settings. I regularly create restore for the SSD disk and have created one for the HHD Vista since the system restore does not create additional restore points now.

    How can I change my group policy settings to enable restore points to create the disk under Vista. I don't remember changing anything that might have caused it, is there a chance that a horse of Trojan or virus caused this? I have Webroot antivirus and currently aired Kaspersky Anti-virus on Vista drive. I also ran the Microsoft safety scanner in safe mode and normal startup mode, none of the virus scanners have found problems, so I'm pretty sure I don't have a Trojan or a virus.

    To the point, how to make appropriate changes to allow the restoration of the system to work for my two HHD disks.  Better yet is there a way to restore completely all original windows default system settings without having to do a clean reinstall.

    You can provide any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

  • System Volume Information folder 23 GB even when system restore is turned OFF. All backups shadow removed

    Dear users,

    I am facing a very strange problem and I tried to solve this problem for more than a month, but no use. I called the Support technique Microsoft in India and they send me the details to email customer support to get this addressed redirected.

    QUESTION to the folder System Volume Information in Windows 7 is 23 GB of my SSD. My SSD capacity is 120 GB. If this space takes more than 20% of my total space of SSD.

  • Percentage of system restore does not reset to zero

    I just built a PC W-7 with a SSD system drive and a hard drive for data.  At the end I was tired and selected the wrong drive (the hard drive) in 'System Protection '.  When I noticed my error, I set the SSD system ("restore system settings AND previous versions of files") then returned to the hard drive and set it to OFF ("turn off system protection").  However, I was surprised to discover that the cursor would not be travelling to 0% and stopped at 1%.  Is it possible to force it to 0%?


    I tried to repro the issue and found that on each machine, once a system drive has been defined for the restoration of the system, the percentage of system restore minimum (use of the disc) does not reset to zero, even after the removal of all old restore points.

    The reason that I found is that once a system restore is enabled on a system drive, the system volume information folder create some system files that are hidden, which takes a little bit of space in the record, leading to 1% of the disk space.  These files can only be changed or deleted after formatting the disk or change the partition of the system drive to a normal drive.

    My research tells me that there is no way in which we could reset the slide to zero percent, minimum 1%.

  • Error - the file name, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. "(0x8007007B), when you exit the system restore.

    Original title: System Restore problems

    Hello, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit classic mode.  My system specs are listed under my signature.

    Before installing a program today, I went to create a system restore point.  In system properties > System Protection, I see that in the Protection settings > disks available there are two instances of the C: drive tagged like this:

    HDD0 (C :) (System) Protection on (selected)
    HDD0 (C :) (Missing) Protection on

    This is probably due to having recently replaced my C: drive with a disk larger to help to restore from a System Image backup.  The installation seems to succeed.  (I use now!)

    Note: other readers in Protection settings are showing off Protection.

    When I clicked on "Set up" in system properties > System Protection, I have seen that in the restoration of settings, the box "Turn off active Protection" has been selected.  I put the option button "restore system settings and previous versions of files.  In space, the slider was set to 0.  I put it to 1% (857,54 MB).

    When I tried to leave the system of Protection for the dialog to HDD0 (c) I got this error:

    There was an unexpected error in the property page:
    The file name, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect.  (0x8007007B)
    Close the property page and try again.

    I deleted all restore points, then created a new restore point.  Current usage shows now 29,48 MB.  I still get the error when I try to the OK from the dialog box.  When I click on the system restore and start the Restore Wizard that I can see the restore point, I just created.

    Any help to banish the fake player available and messages will be appreciated greatly.

  • Windows system restore 8

    Y at - it a Windows system restore app 8

    It is not a metro app, but it is disabled by default because Microsoft wants you to use the update and restore function.

    I do not see the advantage of refresh or reset because you lose your programs and files, so be sure to turn it on if your using your PC as a main computer to work.
    If you have it on a htpc or a ssd and insufficient, on the space just leave off if not turn on

  • How can I find downloaded emails that disappeared after the system restore function?

    I restored Ubuntu 14.10 at an earlier date, but the previously downloaded emails since my online account after the restored date disappeared. Where can I find them? Data is backed up on a weekly basis.

    I have no idea, I suggest you to ask what you actually do on a forum of Ubuntu Linux. My guess is that you have completely replaced the files with the 'old', so the data are missing. Long experience which is anything "System Restore" or "system reset" will lead to nothing other than high blood pressure, gnashing of teeth and the loss data.

    If you happen to find a latest version of your profile files, the information here should help.
