Windows 7: I need urgent help with Win 7 (and maybe Win 8)

I need urgent help with Win 7 (and maybe Win 8)

I have been having major issues with Windows 7 (and I just found out that Win 8 Pro Upgrade is being offered till Jan31 for S39.99)


I am happy with Win 7 features, BUT I do not seem to fix my issues.

Win 7 is not booting. I do have:
A. repair disk;
B. a System Recovery disk;.
C. the Dell.Re-installation OEM disk from Dell (of what they say is already installed in my Dell Desktop PC

Additionally I have
D. an ISO Image from Dell Community Win 7 Image X17-58997.iso..img for my original Win 7 Home 64bit OS

And. one HDD does boot (out of 7 disks I own)...although after bypassing error "0xc0000024"..after that error message.I hit Enter ... and Windows 7 boots.

With all the tools listed above I CANNOT install Windows 7 in a SSD as my boot disk, so i can delete the OS from the Mechanical HDDs that now boots with that error. All other HDDs cannot be read by the OS. That is why i want a clean re-install.

QUESTION :Could anyone offer me some detailed assitance to solve my problem.

ADDITIONALLY:
I have an unopened Windows 7 disk that reads: Windows 7 Home Premium that comes with both 32 and 64 bit Disks (My original system is 64-bit) (*)
Now this piece of software reads that is ŁPGRADE designed for Windows Vista I never owned Vista i bought it with Win 7 64 bit pre-installed by Dell.

QUESTION: Would this spare Upgrade be good to use to re-install my original Win 7 64bit and also using my original Key Code. OR... it wont work cause it needs the old VISTA OS on the computer

And my last option now....(back to first paragraph above) Microsoft is offering for a few more days until January 31 a $39.99 version referred to as The Price of Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Goes From $40 to $200 on February. `This license requires that you already have a copy of Windows installed, anything from Windows XP through Windows 8.(this would be my last resort if none of the other tools work for me)

I have tried to use every tool mentioned above (A,B,C and D) without any success.

I have not tried the unopened software cause I am unsure if it would work for my purposes.

I would appreciate if someone could help me solve my situation..



Thank you kindly

The software is already installed on your computer. Use this DVD only to reinstall the operating system on a Dell PC. This DVD is not for reinstallation of programs or drivers. For Distribution only with a new Dell PC.

It does not allow me to access it. AND there are no Hardware issues inckuding the Hard Disk Drives. I checked all HDDs (7) or the one SSD drive.with Western Digital Acronis as well as the rest of the PC hardware with Dell Diagnostics both local and online at their site. all tests passed without issues.

This is a Softare issue related to the Windows 7 Home 64-bit

Thank you for your interest in helping out.

As already mentioned, you can use the Dell Re-installation DVD to reinstall Windows - if it doesn't work, specify exactly what errors you are getting.

Sorry, but your replies don't make much sense to me.....

Are you saying you have 7 x HDD, all of which have Windows 7 installed to them? Or is the Windows 7 installation spanned across all the disks? You do not require a reinstallation DVD in order for an HDD to boot.

Please start with the basic problem you are having - its very difficult to work out what your problems are at the moment.

The basic problem is:
I have no HDD where the OS is working without errors

The one thing id like to do now is to Install Win 7 on my only SDD.


In the past yes i had installed the OS on the SSD...
and on another 2 HHDs (aside from the one that came with the PC). The reason i did that was to have a backup in case the OS had trouble in the original HDD

If i get to install a clean and fresh OS in the SSD. Then i would wipe out all the HDDs clean and start over using them in a 4 tray external enclosure and one internal tray.

None of my repair, restore, re install tools are allowing me to make a fresh clean install of the OS

I know i have a few other issues -which are all OS related- and i also think i explained them very clearly too. I only need simple 1...2 3 steps to proceed and maybe succeeed after so many unsuccessful tries

Thank you

Note 1: out of the 7 HDD and 1 SSD i had the OS on 4 HDDs and the 1 SSD
Note 2: "Or is the Windows 7 installation spanned across all the disks?" << I have no idea what is spanned in that sentence

When asking the PC to boot from the CD/DVD ROM drive -containing the Dell Re-installation DVD disk- i get a black screen with a flicking white cursor that goes nowhere
