Windows 7: Failed installation resulting in rollback.

Failed installation resulting in rollback.

Hello,

So recently I've tried intalling Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on a new freshly made partition just for it. The installation firstly goes smooth, but when it reaches "Finishing the installation" part, it all goes wrong. First of all the screen wents black for couple seconds, then it goes back again, but the screen is all screwed up... weird lines all over the place, the background is black, all-in-all it's a complete massacre on the screen (In fact, the screen looks exactly like it would if there were incorrect video codecs installed). After that it crashes, and the Blue Screen with the whole crash statistics pops up, and it creates a dump file (or atleast that's what I think it does...), too bad it restarts immediately after, so I can't make out what's the error code. Then after it's done, the windows restart, and when the installer loads up again, it says that "Installation was not completed successfully, all the changes are being undone" or something among those lines, and then it rollbacks.

Perhaps the screen goes nuts because the video drivers aren't supported by Windows 7? They are a bit old... Couple years old I believe (it is because Asus did not release the newer ones, I check oftenly in high hopes...(yes I know that I should just get the ones from ATI, but those don't really work with this video card.. after the installation and reboot the screen goes mad (in exactly the same way as I mentioned it does after the vista installation) and I still have to use "Last good known configuration thru the F8 during boot-up). But would all that cause a rollback? I mean, I could go into a safe mode, and somehow acquire codecs that do work with 7.

The error log is completely empty, while setupact.log is full of errors (problem is, I don't know if they're crucial since it only says that it's either "info" or a "warning" line). I'm attaching all of the logs that I think have a meaning, and, supposedly the dump file that was generated during that blue screen.

(System specs can be found at the bottom the post)

Nothing related to my problem is there but thanks for trying.

Oh and by the way, I'm installing from a virtual drive created by Daemon tools. I have tried installing directly from HDD but the outcome was the same. (I don't have a 4GB USB Flash or a DVD drive, so it's the only way for me :/)

Try removing any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads, then try installing from the HDD...

Okay so, the installation was still unsuccessful (after the "Completing installation" the screen went wacko again), BUT I didn't get the BSOD this time. Removing Daemons really did solve it.

I still say that it has something to do with my video card / codecs.

Again, as in previous tries, I am getting a lot of these "info messages" IBSLIB SetNamedSecurityInfo failed! Error code = 0x2, when it's trying to copy files. Example :
2010-06-09 16:13:09, Info IBSLIB Copying boot files from G:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Windows\Boot\PCAT to \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot...

2010-06-09 16:13:09, Info IBSLIB Unable to open file \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot\cs-CZ\bootmgr.exe.mui for read because the file or path does not exist

and so on... loooooots of such messages in the log can be found.

Can you remove the video card and default to onboard video to complete install? If not, try booting into Safe Mode to update the driver.

Is it possible your vid card or a tv tuner are outputted to a tv or projector so that when their drivers load your monitor goes blank? This happens frequently.

Nope, the video card is directly connected to my monitor.

Okay... I will look around the internet and try 'n find a way how to do that. Thanks for the suggestion .

By the way, I looked at the ASUS's webpage for my video card, and the only selectable versions for my video card drivers were either XP, Vista or the older OSs. Might that have a meaning to all of this?

Try installing the Vista driver for your card, in Safe Mode if necessary. Or try to load it into the installer at Load Drivers prompt on "Where do you want to install Windows" screen.
