Windows 7 repeatable Boot Error - Windows/system32/winload.exe 0x000428 RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, I am having a Boot issue, Windows 7 64 boot issue. looks like this-

    Windows/system32/winload.exe 0x000428

    after performing a disk image of Windows Vista 32 with (Acronis) to SSD then installing a upgrade to Windows 7 64bit the problem started...

    after each reboot error occures.

    I have to use the System disk everytime and run repair windows, each boot....?

    but, when I upgraded my other computer to Windows 7 64bit (First) to the hard disk that had Vista 32 , then imaged to SSD, It worked, on my other computer though.???

    so, Is there a fix for this?:  Or am I back to square one to upgrade the Hard Disk then image to SSD, I really don't what to go through all the updates (3-4 hours worth)

    Please help,

  • Is there a way to fix MBR with simple commands in the DOS Window?

    So, found out more info-

    Storage Manager

    D: says System

    C: says Boot

    I would like C: to be both System and Boot, rite?

  • Is this a known problem with Windows 7?

    Do you have a link with Product support for Windows 7 that can help with this issue?

  • Hello , everybody ...

      Hi , Mark H 

    Sorry , but in my knowledge , you cannot do an upgrade from a 32 Bit operating system to a 64 bit operating system ....  a "new " (  = proper/ personnal)  " installation is needed ( to another partition)  .

  • Hi ,

     I saw that ... i 've said " you cannot upgrade " ... forom 32 to 64 bit operating system .

    But you can do it , as a "new" installation to another partition ( = dual-boot) .... it's not the same .

    Sorry , i'm a french user's forum , and i came here only to find something about Windows8 ... but like i already said , in my" knowledge " , this is not possible.

    I'm living in Belgium and it's too late now  ( 01:04 AM) for me  to continue ...
