Windows 7: System Image Fails ... Instantly

System Image Fails ... Instantly

Hey,

As far as I can tell, the typical backup is working, but for some reason when I click the button to create a system image, it just gives me the following error:

The backup application could not start due to an internal error:

The specified service does not exist as an installed service. *(0x80070424)


This is a fresh install (not an upgrade) of Win 7 Pro x64. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

If you are trying to make the image on CD for one reason or another it will not work. I and many others had that problem.

If this is not the case try this.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker[2]=Performance Maintenance

Still does not work , repair install

OK I tried all of the suggestions that involved starting/setting various Services, and I still get the error. So I did sfc /scannow and saved the results to a text file as outlined in the link from richc46. The Command Prompt said that sfc found corrupted files but could not fix them all, unfortunately I have no idea how to interpret the log file, so if anyone has the time to take a look at it, that would be great.

When SFC finds corrupted files it cant fix it means it doesnt have a "clean" copy to work from. One option to provide that copy is to do a repair install.

If you have a win 7 DVD you can boot from it and select repair my computer. Your data should be safe.

Ok, so which option do I choose under System Recovery Options? Startup Repair, System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, or Command Prompt?
