Now! I can boot to windows when i copy from DVD folder drivers to my windows drivers, but now my os doesn't find drivers for all hardware. I try to install all drivers for hardware, but doesn't work.
Maybe I should install clear os.

Yes mate if you haven't got much on there already it's probably the best idea. We have given you a morass of thing s to do and having been in that position myself in the past one sometimes doesn't know where to start first.



Good luck - let us know how you go mate.


PS Just as a matter of curiousity what machine have you got own build or factory custom made? Perhaps the specs might throw a little light on the problem - jst a wild guess

If you can boot, can you connect to the internet? If so run Windows Update after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware install all Important and Optional Updates which should include missing or outdated drivers.

Then look in Device Manager to see what is missing, import them from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC or Device. We can also help you find them if you'll post back the device make/model. As requested please also fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of post.

If you'd rather start over then read over these steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail. Note especially how drivers are best handled.
