Windows 7: Windows 7 7057 Install Restart Problem

Windows 7 7057 Install Restart Problem

I started installing windows 7 build 7057, (Orbit30) from my bootdisk but for some reason the computer wouldn't boot from the disk so i decided to install it from my HDD into a 2nd partition.
It started installing fine, until i had to restart (currently i have windows 7 build 7000 and vista as two boots) now when ever i turn on the computer, the installer starts, boot logo appears, and the logo stays for about 10-20 mins, and then the installer finally comes up for a split second and then the whole computer restarts... what is there that i can do to fix this, i might be able to get another copy of the 7057 build bootdisk, or i could download 7048, but i'd rather try and fix what i have currently.

I only have access to the bios before the windows 7 installer starts by the way.

Well first welcome aboard the Seven forums and you need the dvd for use of the startup repair option!

The first thing you would need to see done once the Vista or 7000 startup is corrected is simply nuke the 7 primary all together! 7 presently cannot upgrade over an earlier build while it can replace the same build with a repair install saving things in the Windows.old folder.

Once you can boot into Vista you can go into the Disk Management tool there to right click on the 7000 primary assuming that's partition #2 and see that reformatted and ready for the 7057 install from the dvd you burn. That will provide the repair tools as well as a working copy without any Windows loaded even through a virtual mount.

Or you can elect to run the setup while booted in Vista seeing the 7 primary given an E or F drive letter rather booting into it and seeing it as C with Vista as the boot sector. Without changing the default boot order to cd rom look for the F1 or other F key assigned for the boot device menu to save on repeat trips into the bios as well. You simply select the optical drive when going to boot from the dvd.

Unfortunately the system is simply hanging on you for not wiping the 7000 build off first. Once 7 or Vista is running make sure to set Vista as the default OS in order to carry on from there.

i cannot get into the list of options of operating systems to boot from, thats my biggest concern at the moment, also i was going to do the thing where it puts all the old data into a Windows.old folder, seemed like a good idea (i made 12gb of spare data for the install).

What i think has happened is that after getting the copy of windows 7, it has lost files some how (a friend downloaded the iso, burnt it onto a dvd, then made a 2nd iso out of that dvd because he deleted the iso by accident, and the 2nd iso was smaller than the first, although i don't know why).

Some of the lost files could be the boot data or some parts of the installer which it is trying to run but cannot since they cannot be found or something.
I'm going to get the original dvd which worked for my friend in a few days to see how that works, hopefully it fixes the whole problem.

I haven't used 7077, but a lot of folks are saying it is a good build.

FWIW - don't crack Windows 7 - it is valid for over a year, no point in 'cracking' it since these cracks keep having unforeseen consequences on the OS....

Agreed! The expiration on the 7077 build is 6/1/2010! The copy made from the original burn sounds a bit trashed there!

I think you summed up that one fast. A fresh download and good burn to disk would likely solve all problems. The copy obviously lost integrity as well as some necessary files or simply saw a bad burn.

With the 7077 on at the moment(32bit of course waiting for 64bit) it's running well here with one exception seen before with the exsting tv tuner card. Some games were tossed on already to evaluate how those run compared to the 7000 build in steady use for the last 3 months and so far so good.

One of the main benefits now seen in the 7077 is the larger amount of device drivers listed for more brands when setting up the network adapter or some other hardware. The initial installation of the cable modem on the 7000 build(32bit no go on 64) saw some moments while this one readily weht to work!

I'll still be looking over this one carefully due to the larger size difference being seen. With the x86 that was 2.5gb compared to the 7068's 2.54gb 40mb while this one is 3.04gb compared to the 7068 x64's 3.23gb. That's almost 200mb seen there!

Wirh the same compression ratio you would expect to see that being the same once the iso was complete on the drive which will be shortly since I am presently at 94.5%! In about 14hrs. I;ll be able to confirm that once the new nic card is in and the installation is complete.
