Try to install Windows 7 on a different SSD, but get an error indicating that the missing required cd/dvd driver. How Windows load into memory from a cd/dvd that windows 7 says there is no driver missing? This is the same installation disc that I used on a previous SSD without problem. I have 2 other unused installation floppies, and each returns the error message. This problem arose when an attempt to use System Restore Image I had done just on an external SSD and a drive hard usb. The error I had to try to use one of them was that the Image was made in EFI and the computer seeks to restore in BIOS. It's the same machine. Yes, disk management displays the UEFI 100 MB system partition. The motherboard is an Asus F2A85 - V Pro. List Disk running installation diisk sees only the cd/dvd and the drive hard usb but not the SATA drives. When you normally use that List Disk sees everything. The UEFI bios sees all readers, when you use the system installation disk. I used a system repair disc made from the same computer at the same time as the picture of the system and used to start and got a system repair options is not compatible with this version of windows. The windows version is 6.1.7601 sp 1 build 7601. Any ideas?
Thank you for your response.
There are two modes of starting particularly machine-> BIOS & EFI. BIOS is the general start mechanism found in most machines. Some of the machines also support EFI boot mechanism with BIOS
Either the BIOS or EFI is set as the default in your machine - Please check start the installation system which
one is active by default.
If the EFI operating system is installed, it will create an EFI system partition in your machine. Installation of BIOS has no EFI partition.
Warning in the BIOS: BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
Hope this information is useful. Please feel free to post in the case where you are facing other problems with Windows, we will be happy to help you.
I need to know if I can delete win 7 and install Windows XP on my Qosmio F60
I am a student online and the software is not compatible with win 7 and IE8
I need at least of the video, network and WIFI win XP drivers ASAP
Thank you very much
Maybe your University must understand that time WXP disappeared and more people use Win7 or Vista.
In any case, I just hope that you created the recovery DVDs using the preinstalled Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator. This DVD you can use later to install Win7. Be careful about this. If you install own OS like Vista or Windows XP Home edition, you will lose this option.
Back to your question: Qosmio F60 is newer model laptop with supported Win7 only. For now WXP drivers are not available.
I recently purchased a Qosmio F60 as my first laptop and I am trying to burn a DVD. What is the normal burning time?
I am a total newbie to DVD burning (this is my first attempt) and I'm trying to burn a movie that I recorded on my desktop which is 53 minutes in length. I inserted the blank DVD in the drive and click "burn" and so far, it took 1 hour and 30 minutes, and it's only 27% full. Does this sound right?
All the basic information, tips, advice, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Remember, I am a total newbie and need basic instructions!
Thanks in advance.
The combustion speed is depending on the DVD player, burning speed and the data you burn. But 1 hour 30 minutes is too long, even you burn a DVD with 4, 7 GB of capacity with low burning speed.
What program you use for burning discs? I recommend Nero or CDBurnerXP freeware tool.
Also try different media, not all are compatible with all the drivers. I have good experiences with DVD-R from Verbatim and TDK discs.

Updated for Windows 10 online and now DVD player does not recognize nor activate to play DVDs with HP Media Player. Given message that MSVCP71.dll is missing and must be reinstalled. Can you guide me through this process?
Windows 10 won't come with a good media player, you have to pay for Windows Media Center. He will probably kill on your machine the player from CyberLink software too. Pouvez be able to re - install using CyberLink Media Player:
If this isn't the case, please use the next free drive, he's going to play almost all video formats:
Hi, I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it, but I can't update because several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS, so I went on the windows site that allows you to download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it to a disc (right now I don't have a USB 4 GB at hand but is also possible).
I have already burned the disc on the right by clicking on the ISO and selecting "burn disc image" and changed the options start, but every time I turn on my computer all them I see is a simple underscore and then the regular windows 8 start screen.
I already visited invention helps in this regard and I read things like the thing UEFI windows 8 (not on my laptop because I upgraded to w7) and the security settings on the BIOS, but none of them seem to solve the problem.
Curiously, while trying to open the burned dvd, it is said that 4.37 GB on 4.37 GB, do you think my dvd drive could be damaged?
PLEASE, HELP ME, BEEN 4 DAYS OF THIS HELL :/
Hello and thanks for the display on the HP support forum. The first thing I'd like to try in this case is download and burn the ISO from another computer.
If you have already set your boot options to boot from the CD/DVD and a new dvd is still not read you may have a hardware problem with your dvd player.
Is the DVD read DVD player when you started up windows?
So I try to put the image on a USB key and try that.
I find from time to time when I use the windows software to make an ISO, it is hit and miss you. There is there other software that you can try, and some are free or so-called share ware.
Now, even if you burn a good image, you started with a Windows 7 system. The real picture is more than a UEFI and you will not be able to read if your system is defined as a legacy system.
Here's what you want to check.
Now if your system shipped with Windows 7 product key you have for your system does not work for Windows 8.1. It is something that you will want to consider.
Let me know how things are going.
Thanks again for posting and have a great day.
I am operating XP Professional, and even if I am able to burn and backup my files, I found the other day that my CD/DVD drive has gone completely out of my system. I went into the Device Manager and find that's simply none the case on my computer. I opted to try to reload the drivers, but the player itself will not open one of my drives. Can I burn my data to go back to using Roxio, but reading discs, do not. I downloaded the peripheral FixIt and wen tthru stages and multiple processes I found throughout Microsoft questions and answers... and everything known to man google how to solve this problem, or at least locate that right by car down to remove the filters above and below as one of the requested... forums and restart , but still the player has not reappeared. Help, please! Apart from reformatting my C: I am at a loss what to do. Please don't tell me to reinstall my OS and or reboot. Although it opens and closes, it cannot read a disc at this point. Oh I have drives C, E, F, G, H, I have on my computer and none of them will open the CD, while a disc is inserted. Misconfig, diskmgmt.msc and devmgmt.msc the CD/DVD drive does not lack either...Thank yousmoosman
· What is the number and the model of the computer?
I suggest you to check if the DVD drive is detected in the BIOS and get back to us for the information. To start with the BIOS, you can consult the manual provided by the manufacturer or go to the manufacturer site.
Note: changes to the BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
I recently purchased this model, however had a few problems with HARD drive and had to format entirely. Resume function is therefore lost. Could not find the exact drivers for this model and as I used the drivers I found under name Qosmio F60, done computer startup laptop over a long time and Win Experience index is low enough.
So the question is, where I could find the exact drivers for Toshiba Qosmio F60 - 10K or order recovery DVD/BD?
If you are looking for accurate drivers, it would be very interesting to know what operating system you are using. Drivers for Windows 7 32 bit and Windows 7 64-bit are different so it s important information. Normally everything can be downloaded here:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads > download drivers
Last but not least you can order directly here Toshiba recovery disc but it s not for free:

Hi all, I was all having the same problem, when I tried to install windows 7 on DVD.Can I install it via the boot menu (F12 key) and select option to boot from the DVD. Later, it will ask if you want to upgradation or custom installation. Upgaradation option does not work in my case. So I chose "custom installation" and then after Windows 7 is installed correctly and works also with success. All the files in the operating system previous inclution or ding programs files and the windows system files are stored in a new folder in C: drive named windows.old
I have ben trying to do a clean install of Windows 7 for a week. I have a problem with my current hard drive and it cannot be repaired or cloned. I want to do a clean install of Windows 7 my DVD that I bought several years ago. I have a new SSD and a new HD. I tried to install both at different times, but I get the same results.
Windows goes through the installation and on the very last step after that it starts and restarts once or twice then the screen goes black and nothing else happens.
My SSD and HD are defined as AHCI in the BIOS. The first boot is the DVD. Even when I do a Windows format on both discs, I always get the same result. I installed windows of this DVD a few years on the drive that goes wrong. I have all the necessary information, but never asked to use it.
Any help would be appreciated. I like to wait for Windows 10 which will be released but need to install an OS to work now.
You seem to have more than one drive on your computer.
Try to remove all the readers of storage unless the target drive where the operating system will be installed.
Also try over the amount of RAM installed on a single key and try again.
I have a Sony Vaio SVE1113M1EB provided with pre-installed Windows 8. Yesterday, my laptop won't start and recovery tools did not work. Then I deleted the partitions in stock and tried to install Windows 8 on DVD. He said: "the product key entered is not one of the images available for installation windows." I wrote my product key. How to install Windows 8?
Original title: Installation of Windows 8
The issue could be due to the supplied product key does not match the press which is used to install Windows. The product key that is provided can be a file without assistance, in a. EI. CFG file, in the PID.txt file or in the BIOS firmware. Windows OEM 8 machines ship with the product key in the firmware, and if this product key does not match the press, then you will see the above error message.
I suggest you to change the product key to the correct for the media you are trying to install. If the system has a product key in the motherboard (o. a. 3.0 [Activation OEM] provides an OEM product key in the firmware), you use an Unattend file, file (EI.cfg) edition Configuration or the product ID file (PID.txt).
You can check the link:
«Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 installation may fail with the error message: the product key entered does not match any of the images available for installation Windows.» "Enter a different product key"
