Windows 7: Long application installs, unable to create a restore point


01 Jul 2012   #11

Win7 (x64)
 
 
System Protection failure

I wanted to add to this thread. As problems began to build up, I did a complete reinstallation of Windows. I still have the problem creating restore points, so it seems like it would be a hardware/firmware issue - most likely:

a) a problem with the ASRock mobo or the BIOS.

b) Memory problems (highly unlikely, IMO)

Again have turned off System Protection to get a usable system.

Side Note: 8 hours to install and update windows and applications, and uncountable hours having to react to all the subtleties - it's really an issue. On the other hand, my TouchPad with CM9 is flawless. Even when the occasional nightly beta causes an issue, restoring takes about 1.5 minutes and I NEVER have to fool around with updates or data issues. It just works. Big changes are a-comin' in the PC world. Closed-source is dead!

So, anyone ever figure this out? I need to turn on restore so I can do the Anytime upgrade!
