UDF File System

Hi, im trying to do a repair install of windows 7 home premium from the original disk that i have 64 bit but all i get is a readme.txt file with;
Quote:
This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification.

Bare Foot Kid,

I see that Debley never responded to your question. I have the same question she had and I will answer "yes", that is the link to the Repair Install that I would like follow.

Thanks,

Did you download your DVD image from Microsoft? If so, did you burn it to a DVD or did you just copy it over and have one single file on the DVD with an .iso extension?

Hey kegobeer - thanks for responding.

If you look at the link above "How to do a Repair Install...", my situation is covered by step 5:

"5. Repair Windows 7 SP1 installation using "retail" Windows 7 without SP1 installation media"


My situation is exactly like Debley's - a retail Windows 7 DVD with the same Readme.txt file referring to UDP. Step 5 makes no reference to UDP.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Have you installed Windows from this retail disc in the past? When this error happens, it usually points to a bad disc.

Yes. One time. Just like Debley.

The disk looks great.

Have you previously installed it on this system? If not, the DVD drive may have an issue. In that case, I'd swap it with another DVD drive to see if that fixes the problem. You might also look to see if there is a firmware update for your DVD drive.

The DVD works well. I just installed four new programs using that DVD drive.

The drive does "see" the folder and the readme.txt contents. The readme.txt can be read and provides the caveat about the UDP format.

Yes, but you can't install Windows, so installing other applications doesn't prove the drive works. If you can't install Windows using that DVD on that computer, then either the drive is defective in some way or the disc is defective in some way. If you do a little googling, you'll find a few posts on the 'net where a disc worked on one computer but not another, and it turned out the disc had a problem.

Try another DVD drive. If that doesn't fix the problem, then there's something else going on. Check for a BIOS update and a DVD drive firmware update.

Chances are you can contact Microsoft and tell them your problem, and they'll send you another disc. If your disc came from an OEM (HP, Dell, etc), then you'll have to contact the OEM for a replacement disc.
