Windows 7: Windows 7 troubles with booting up

Windows 7 troubles with booting up

I've gotten the Windows 7 RC 7100 x86 iso burned to a DvD. I have a spare HDD (30gb). I unplugged my main (XP) HDD so I wouldn't have an conflicting problems (if any) during the install.

I put in the CD and rebooted. I booted from the CD and went through the install process. It all went well, no problems, it made its main partition with the reserved system partition on the HDD.

The computer I tried putting it on has:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ - 2.2ghz
1.5gb RAM
nVidia GeForce 6600 Graphic Card
[eMachines model: T6209]

After the initial file copy and 'expanding' it says I have to restart the computer to continue. So I did. Starts up like normal, then all I can get a glimpse of on the screen is "Loading ..." - dunno what else it says
then I get the Windows Boot Manager telling me "Windows has encoutered a Problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.

File: \Boot\BSD
Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: Unexpected I/O error occurred.

I got frustered cause this happened multiple times (kept reformatting, then reinstalling) so I put it in a computer and was gonna intend to put windows 2000 on it (Pentium 3 1ghz Processor w/ 328mb of Ram)
Once in that computer Windows 7 started up normally and finished the install process and works on that computer. Which is below the requirements.

I have another eMachines computer [Model: T3256] that I put the HDD to see if maybe its a eMachines type problem or not. Windows 7 booted up just fine on that computer too (AMD Athlon XP 2.2ghz Processor. 1gb Ram. AGP graphic card {ATI Radeon 9600})

I want to know why I cannot get Windows 7 working on the computer I originally wanted it to be on. Theres no real difference between my eMachine computers besides one has FireWire port (which I disabled during the many installations) and 1 PCI-Express slot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what the problem is, hopefully someone can :/

Hi, just reading your post and you say, that during the install it says,
After the initial file copy and 'expanding' it says I have to restart the computer to continue.

I've installed a lot of versions of windows 7, and I have never had to do one single thing while it was installing, except fill out the windows that it needed information on,
so try again, and this time do not do anything until it asks you for a name for the PC, or whatever, and see if it works .

I don't know where you got your iso from but you can check the hash files in order to make sure that the iso is not corrupted in any way. The hash files of the original iso's as they are available for download from technet and MSDN are published on the respective page.

checked the hashes and its correct.
The reboot happens by itself, I dont make it do anything. it does it after the step before completing installation. when I moved it to the other computer, it booted from where it left off and asked me for the PC name and all that jazz (user acct, etc.)

Hello GreenWood and welcome to the Se7enforums!

The one thing to be paying the closest attention between the two systems would be the...
"File: \Boot\BSD
Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: Unexpected I/O error occurred".

That would seem to suggest something as simple as a dried up old ide cable on the intended system. When moving the drive into the next and using a totally different one everything came to life? Unexpected I/O error = Unexpected Input/Output error suggesting the cable as a common problem, bad connection in the ide socket, or other board problem on the first older system.

Didn't occur to me about the cabling. The intended system is newer than the other computers so the cables should be fine. I did swap them out though, and tried the ones from the other 2 computers. Same error

How many ram sticks in the 1.5gb ? What size is each ? How many ram slots on MB ?

What size is the Hd you are trying to install it to ? IDE or sata HD ?

I did a similar spec box like yours on sunday. Here is the posts :

Sounds like an old Socket A(462) board with 2 dimm slots there. DocBrown That would be one 1gb with a 512mb to see 1.5gb there according to specs on that model eMachines. Tech Data Memory Configurator

You can see what a replacement board looks like at eMachines Motherboard (MS-7145 RS480 754P K8 IXP400) - MBEM103777MS#

Anyways you could be seeing a problem like this for a few different reasons on an old system like a simple need to replace the battery on the board if that's now weak or the ide socket is seeing a loose connection there since you tried other cables.

I think I would pre-format the HD you want to install win7 on with NTFS file format.

Insert win7 DVD, Boot & start install. Remember that win7 does automatically reboot several times during the complete install process. Just let it take its time to do the complete install. Dont have any extra stuff attached, USB, printers, webcams, memory readers, flash drives, etc. Those will always install later.

Check for your Bios Boot order: DVD/CD first HD second
