The install might have botched. is this the first install attempt or?
also is it a clean known working ISO (dvd image) ?

This was the third install attempt from two (or was it three?) different isos that are all good. Same issue every time. I would just install 32 bit - I got a 32 bit install to work - but all the drivers from HP for this machine are 64 bit and I am trying to restore the system to as close to factory original as possible.

I am wondering if I need to use the HP restore disks to do this (which the client doesn't have, of course.) The HD had a really weird setup, 4 dynamic partitions on the HD when I got it from the client. I have since reformatted to 2 standard NTFS primary partitions, because the Win7 install wouldn't allow me to reformat or do anything with the dynamic partitions.

model number/motherboard number? if you can find the 32 bit drivers and they aren't running 4gb of ram or more, you could just pop a 32 bit install on. unless they specifically want need/want the 64 bit install. USUALLY theres 2 sets of drivers 32/64

So mobo number/setup number (if it was a prebuilt) ?

going out in about 20-30 mins so, good luck

And yes, it has 8 GB of memory and they want it like it was when they bought it with 64 bit.

Ah. that sucks. I take it doesn't have any backup or factory default partitions or discs?
Try a fresh ISO from windows?

I've tried several different Win ISOs. The index for the Dynamic partitions apparently got trashed, so while there was a recovery partition, it was not accessible, which was why I reformatted the drive to standard primary partitions. Different HD is not an option because its a laptop, and diagnostics don't reveal any problems with it.

Found the solution. There is a group of settings in the Registry called CrashControl that control memory dumps, whether or not the system auto-reboots if there is a system failure, etc. Since the system wouldn't boot, I had to download a repair disk that allowed me to edit the registry. I downloaded the Hiren's BootCD which is serious overkill at 600+Mb, but it had a lot of other tools that also looked useful. Here is a link to the settings in CrashControl: CrashControl

Now that I can see the error, have to figure out what is causing it. Lots of mentions of it here and at Microsoft TechNet forums, am going to go through them and see if one might contain the solution for my situation before I post here.

Thanks to everyone for all your help.

Have to turn off OUTLOOK.EXE manually when shutting down PC
As it says on the tin. Every time I try to shut down my PC, Windows asks if it can close off multiple instances of OUTLOOK.EXE for me. I don't know why it does this or why there are multiple instances of Outlook running in the background. Some help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
