Clean install win 7 x64. Starting setup services loop/DiskPart error.

Hi,


I've tried suggestions around this forum but everyone had a different reason to why it came to this error so i'm trying to explain how i got to this error because this is really stressing me out.

I'm having problems with my windows 7 ultimate x64 install on a toshiba satiellite laptop..My laptop was restarted right when I was in the last stages of Completing installation and now I'm stuck in a loop "starting setup services" and then after there is another error saying " The computer restarted unexpectedly........installation cannot proceed...... click OK and the restart the installation".

At this point I press shift + f10 to open command prompt and try diskpart because I had to do the same thing on the laptop I'm on now. It worked on this one (an HP). But on the toshiba I get to "list disk" and well there is ONLY Disk 0. I "select disk 0" and it says it's selected and I type "clean"/"clean all" but I have an error "virtualdisk service error: clean is not allowed on the disk containing the current boot....etc".

-i cant do clean install/format that i need to do or is there another way besides diskpart?

-my windows disk is one i created from an iso. it's not burned into the DVD RW (could this be the problem?) i read somewhere that to install win 7 on a toshiba it must be burned.

-i actually had windows 7 x32 installed but i wanted x64 because the computer came with x64 but i was having problems so i put on x32 because it was smaller and did fix my problem.but now i need x64 because most of the laptops drivers that i put back on are only for x64! sorry a confusing part...

-windows installed perfectly during the x32. x64 is my problem. by the way both installs were done by using files from the iso so i didnt use a disk with the x32 install but during the x64 i used a non-burned iso files version to install.

-when i go in safe mode it has an error that the installation can't be completed in safe mode.

-i used custom install

-i have a 4gb usb and some extra empty DVD+RW that are 4.7gb if that info helps somehow..

so...what am i supposed to do now? do i create another disk in DiskPart(if so how?)

while waiting for a reply i'll search around here more there might be a post i missed..thanks in advance for helping me

The problem is you're not booting the installer to do the Clean command. Follow these steps which overcome almost all install failures and will set you up for the perfect install shown in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. (If an EFI BIOS you'll need to decide if you want UEFI BIOS vs. Legacy BIOS. If UEFI follow these special steps for Install, otherwise enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module to proceed with normal install.) Set DVD drive first to boot, HD second, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into Windows 7 installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10, or enter System Recovery Options to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt. You are creating the partition here for the purpose of wiping the HD and marking Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Where do you buy your Windows 7 DVD & Product Key from?
