  • lollxd,

    Can you please give information as to how you setup dual boot on your machine?


    Saturday, October 29, 2011 4:06 PM
  • Hey Chris, I launched the setup.exe in the sources of the ISO. But everything worked fine before, after that disk check i have no way to go to w7.

  • In Device Manager I founded PCI bus, 2 PCI Express standard Root Port, PCI standard host CPU bridge, PCI standard ISA bridge, PCI standard PCI-TO-PCI bridge and 11 PCI standard RAM Controller.

    is that?

     Oh, and sometimes I have to power off the computer pulling the plug, because it doesn't turn off.

  • Hey Lollzd,


    PCI devices are devices that connect directly to your motherboard using a PCI slot. Typically PCI devices may include video cards, sound cards, networking cards, etc.


    If you haven't already, you may want to try installing the latest available driver for each piece of hardware this is being used by your computer. If your computer was purchased already configured, try visiting your computer manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers. If you built your computer or added additional hardware, you'll need to visit the hardware manufacturer's website of each piece of hardware that is being used by your computer to obtain the latest driver.


    If one of the drivers isn't able to install successfully, try using the compatibility troubleshooter to see if it can help the driver to install properly. The compatibility troubleshooter can be opened by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section
    • Select Search
    • Type Compatibility
    • Click Settings in the right column
    • Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows


    Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for the driver. You will likely want to choose the choice for This program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now when it is given if the latest driver is only applicable to a different version of Windows.


    Hope that helps.

  • Hey Steven

    I think that no one understand my problem: the problem IS THE DISK CHECKING, and yeah, the MEMORY.DMP gives errors, but the disk checking it's blocking me the access of Windows 7


    And about the latest drivers, I have them.

    Monday, November 14, 2011 8:25 PM
  • Hey Lollxd,


    Please correct me if this is incorrect or if there are gaps in the information: When you choose to boot Windows 7 the disk checking screen appears and scans your hard drive for errors. After this process has completed you still cannot get into Windows 7.

    Also, what do you see after the disk check completes?


    Let's try switching to the Windows 7 for the default operating system to see if that provides a different result. You can do this by:

    • Boot into Windows Developer Preview
    • Enter the Start screen
    • Type Advanced System
    • Click Settings in the right column
    • Click View advanced system settings
    • Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings...
    • Under the Default operating system: drop down, select Windows 7
    • Click OK
    • Click OK
    • Restart your computer


    Then choose Windows 7 when given to choice to see if you can successfully boot.

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

    Windows/system32/winload.exe 0x000428

    after performing a disk image 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 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,

  • Hey Steven, yes you are correct: but there is the Advanced System?

    Enter the start screen, type advanced system. HOW?

    I tried to change W7 to default with msconfig too


    Wednesday, November 16, 2011 7:28 AM
  • Hey Lollxd,


    If you have a keyboard attached to your system you can just begin typing when in the Start screen to begin a search. Typing Advanced System will give you the option to open "View advanced system settings" in the Settings list of search results.


    If you don't have a keyboard attached to your computer and use touch instead, try following these steps:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Touch your finger to the right edge of your screen and drag your finger toward the center of the screen
    • Touch Search in the Charms menu that appeared on the right side of the screen
    • Touch Settings
    • Touch the search box to open the touch keyboard
    • Type Advanced System
    • Click View advanced system settings
    • Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings...
    • Under the Default operating system: drop down, select Windows 7
    • Click OK
    • Click OK
    • Restart your computer

  • EDIT:

     Is there any way to deactivate the disk check on Windows startup??


    Hey Steven,

    thanks for all of your help, but nothing yet. The disk check is running and running every time that i restart, and doesn't let me access Windows 7.

    Maybe I should wait for a new build of W8 and install it..

    but thanks for all your help stev!

  • BiosVersion = P01-A0
    BiosReleaseDate = 09/02/2009
    SystemManufacturer = eMachines
    SystemProductName = EL1830

    Update the BIOS to P01.A2 and try again:

  • Upgraded, but the problem stills. The problem is the disck check, not something in the BIOS.


    when I upgraded, my computer starded VUUUUUUUU and I '' OMG, bye computer '' ( ironic moment ) but then it boot :)

  • hello lollxd,

    lets try by repairing your Windows7 installation through the Win7 disk. Put it the drive, choose to boot with it by altering  the boot option at the start up. In the installation window that opens, you will get the option to repair your Windows, go ahead with it. Since you have already set Windows7 as your default OS, even if the installation repairs the start up, it would do no great harm, you may lose your Win 8 graphic boot manager. Later on, you can repair it too, with the same technique. 

    Saturday, November 19, 2011 11:23 AM
  • I have no Win7 disk. It don't came up with the computer.
    Monday, November 21, 2011 6:35 PM
  • I have no Win7 disk. It don't came up with the computer.


    In that case you may try going to the Windows7 Recovery drive option, see if it contains an option to repair the boot menu, try it. If it doesn't, and you get no fresh ideas, do a system recovery after backing up the necessary files.
