Windows 7: Copying Windows files hanging at 0% on Lenovo v570

I don't think you can rely on WD at this point if disk will pass Disk Check and PW Check File System on one large lettered partition. You can also run HD Surface Test using PW CD.

I think you need to confirm the ISO integrity or download another, then burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed which never fails. If the problem continues write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu which also never fails. Cross-checking one with the other will confirm installer. Enable USB legacy in BIOS.

Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ . Remove all but 2gb RAM to try install.

Confirm you reset BIOS to defaults. Set HD first to boot, then use one-time BIOS Boot Menu to trigger DVD or flash stick.

As a last resort, move HD to another computer plugged in alone, try install. If it works, SysPrep before returning to problem machine: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

Greg,

Quick update: read everything you had to say, decided to run a surface test using PW..

It reached .04% after about 15 minutes, found an error, hasn't moved any further along and it's been 2:30+ hours.

Previous to that, I went through the install process but when I selected the newly created partition, I got a message that said something along the lines of (paraphrasing): "Windows cannot find a disk" even though the partition clearly shows up and is able to be selected. It's once I hit 'Next' I get the error.

Quite convinced at this point that I may have done something to the hard drive over the course of trying to fix my original problem.

By the way, I've used run the Memtest86+ already (sometime last week) and the test found no errors so we can scratch that off the list. I've swapped both sticks of RAM and both work fine and are recognized in the BIOS.

It's too bad WD Data Lifeguard won't run as it can sometimes repair the HD enough to use it, although I wouldn't much count on it as before. If you want to try one other thing I'd try Seagate SeaTools which works on most makes. Otherwise I concur you need to replace the HD. Do you have another one around to stick in there to see if it will install?

Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. Just seems like a stroke of bad luck. The only other hard drives I have are the one in this little Acer One netbook. Unfortunately, I can't get the hard drive out of my Lenovo. All I have to do is remove one screw and pull up on a 'tab' on the hard drive, yet as hard as I pull up on the tab, the HDD will not come out for whatever reason. I'll try the Seagate tool tomorrow, say a prayer and hope for the best.

Have you looked at page 41 in the Manual: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...wCuMMA&cad=rja

Hello Greg,

My apologies for going MIA, got swamped with work and am in the last few weeks of my undergraduate and really have hadn't had much (any) time to focus on fixing my laptop, not to mention the stress of trying to do so. I ended up ordering a replacement hard drive today, same one (Scorpio Blue 750GB). Any tips as far as installing Windows on a brand new hard drive? Want to make sure I do this right the first time and you're the first person I thought to ask. I'm sticking with my original OS, Home Premium.

Thanks!

Hello Greg,

Well, definitely was the hard drive as I typing this message out on my Lenovo. What programs do you suggest I download in order to keep my laptop running at max proficiency?
