Windows 7: Windows 7 permissions corrupted after failed windows 8 installation

Windows 7 permissions corrupted after failed windows 8 installation

Hello.

Recently I tried to install windows 8. The process went well until near the end whwn I received a message saying that the installation was not sucessfull and that the system was going to be reverted to Windows 7.

The next boot with windows 7 I noticed that permissions on some folders and/or files had been changed and I cannot acess those folders.

Is it possible that this is a result of the failed installation? If so what can I do?

Thank you.

Hi Rogerio Tojeiro,

I believe you have a corrupt installation of windows on the system. It is more likely that it would cause error in present and in future as well.

It would be better if you have a clean install of windows on the system:

Clean Install Windows 7

Clean Install with Windows 8 Upgrade

If you face any error installing the same please share it in details with us so we can assist you further. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
