I am clean installing a copy of Windows 7 professional x86 on an HP DV6700 laptop. This is an actual release copy obtained through Microsoft store front download. Everything works great when booting from the DVD until it starts expanding files. It has gotten as far as 49% before giving the error. Always seems to be a random number, Iíve tried probably 4 times.
I am positive that the disc is not corrupt because I installed Windows 7 without any problems using the same disc on my desktop. I have deleted every partition on the HP except for the recovery partition it comes preinstalled with. My next option is to delete this too but I would rather not. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this issue?
I also have another semi-related issue that I would love input on if anyone has any idea. After Windows 7 was unsuccessful I attempted to recover Windows Vista using the recovery partition. Everything installed fine until it tried to reboot. Now I get an error message ďMissing boot managerĒ and only an option to restart the computer. Iím afraid this is going to happen even if I get windows 7 to install so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Lets work backwards here
the boot manager in the partition before you attempted to install win 7. there is a tool called bcdEdit that you can use to edit the boot file. there is a tutoiral here in SF here BCDEDIT - How to Use
Onto the win 7 install. If you keep getting that error code it might be the dvd player that is at fault. You could copy the win 7 file on to the vista partition of the hard drive and install from there.
