Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know. I removed the link.

Ok I'll give it a try. Would be weird if that works, as I have used the same ISO before. But it will be for tomorrow. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks again for the help so far! Greatly appreciated!


Kind regards,

Stijn

It's a 3 year old tablet-PC so indeed it was meant for XP. I had windows 7 running smoothly on it before until my HD crashed which is why I'm trying to get Windows 7 installed on my new HD. I use my tablet-PC as a digital sketchbook so I'm not using it very intensively.
Was it the old HD at fault, or may be it is a short on the MB.

Hi everyone,

sorry for the late reply. January is a busy month.
I tried with another ISO and the installation went smooth. After a restart I get an error though:

"Windows has encountered a problem communication with a device connected to your computer.

This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.

If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.

File: \Boot\BCD

Status: Oxc00000e9

Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred."

The only thing I have plugged in is a mouse. So I unplugged it, rebooted and then got a menu with a choice between starting system repair or starting Windows normally. I selected system repair and that lead me to the same error..

Anyone has any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated!


Kind regards,

Stijn

How do you mean? What is MB exactly? (sorry, don't know that much about computers)

Unplug all periperhals and other HD's during install.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update. If so, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If you have SATA HD, set controller to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary. Next test the HD using maker's diag/repair CD scan: HD Diagnostic followed by Disk Check

Now wipe the HD of all corruption, infection or bad boot sector code: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Other tips for getting a purrfect install: re-install windows 7

Thanks for the reply but I have done all that. Multiple times now..

An update: I disabled bluetooth and infrared in the BIOS and then Windows started up normally. I was a happy man until I rebooted and I got the error again. So I went into the BIOS and disabled my network adapter. Guess what, Windows starts up normally.. As a semi-happy man I took the oppertunity to also disable the fingerprint reader. After a reboot, I get the error again..

Slightly losing my mind here...


Kind regards

How exactly did you wipe the HD before the last install?

You said you used the same ISO to install before - was that during these attempts or on another computer that is running Win7 fine?

I would install HashTab to check the HASH of the ISO against official Win7 HASH: Windows 7 RTM SHA-1 hash / checksums as your ISO may be faulty depending upon where you got it.

Then burn another DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

You seem to want to focus on repairing the failed install while we are still waiting for answers to confirm you even have a reparable install. Please answer questions in depth to get further help, not just "I tried all that."

Before Windows is installed you have to select a partition on which to install. That's where I used the format option to format the HD.

No need to be pointing fingers, I would like to be able to answer in depth but I don't know that much about all of this. And as I stated before: this is a tablet-PC so I don't have a DVD-drive.

I'll give that hashTab thing a try.

Thanks for the response.
