Windows 7: Windows 7 premium service pack 1- Need help Please!

16 May 2013   #11

I don't know why there is no System flag on C, which signifies the System boot files are there. This is not correct. I'd boot the Win7 DVD as soon as you burn it to run a few Startup Repairs to see if it appears.

You can try uninstalling Norton bloatware using the special Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product.

This may help, along with the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

You can also benefit from using only the tools and methods given in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 for your current install, but if it's varied too much from the way it's recommended to perform it in the tutorial then I'd do it over, deleting C during install to create a new Partition there.

Well I was all over the place last night ... I'm praying i didnt dig a deeper hole. I went to the site and downloaded X17-58997.iso. I also deleted norton and installed microsoft essentials. I backed up my computer on my USB and now I dont know where to go from here.

After I backed up my computer to my usb I tried using USB to DVD down load tool and it wanted to delete everything on it to proceed.

Can either of you guys tell where I'm and I what was and/or needs to be accomplished?

I was also wondering how do I know if the new "reinstalled clean version" is running or the old crappy preinstalled version is still there? I'm picking up a new USB just in case you guys still want me to run that USB to DVD download. That confused the hell out of me last nt.

Thanks

When you reinstall windows you format the partition you install windows on, in this case C: when you do that the old windows is gone, so no issues with the past operating system.

Have you downloaded the iso file yet and checked it to make sure it`s size is 3.09 GBs ?

You now have to burn it to a dvd.

We used to use Imgburn to burn the iso to the dvd.

http://download.cnet.com/ImgBurn/300...-10847481.html

http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

If you are having trouble with the download tool, use it instead. And do not burn it any faster then 4x speed.

Once you`ve installed ImgBurn, open the program and choose "Burn iso file to disc" then browse to your desktop where you have the iso image saved. Then just burn it to the dvd.

Watch the video from the 1st link above.

And read this tutorial if you haven`t yet.

Why are the screenshots in two successive posts completely different?

Have you reinstalled since you bought the Toshiba (this is the Toshiba in your specs, correct)?

If not then you have the Toshiba preinstalled Win7 which is a corrupt install to begin with, smothering WIn7's native performance with bloatware and useless duplicate utilities which have better versions built into Win7.

You can try to Clean Up Factory Bloatware to see if you get better performance, but most tech enthusiasts won't bother with the factory preinstall but prefer to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .

Read over both tutorials to see what's involved and decide which you want to start with, then ask back any questions you have so that you understand fully. Focus on the steps and how to do them, not distractions. We will be here to help you as you go. Don't waste the resource.

1st things 1st. Do you see your shot of disk management, you see the partition C that`s 286 GBs ?

That`s where you are going to install windows, unless you want to delete the other partitions next to it and use the whole drive for windows. You have to make that decision and let us know, so we can proceed.

Have you gotten all the files and data, music pictures etc. you want to keep off the hard drive yet ?

If you're going ahead with the Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then read it over carefully as it included everything that must be considered and backed up before reinstalling, how to do the best install, and how to set up the new install perfectly.

Ask back any questions. I'll be waiting here to answer them.

You scared me Greg, I thought you were gone for the nite.

I`m not finding a tut for a usb stick install.

Installing from a usb drive can be real tricky. I don`t want him to get in the constant rebooting from the usb drive when the pc restarts, that tripped me up the 1st time I did it from the flash drive.
