Windows 7: Dynamic partition

28 Dec 2017   #31

Windows 7 HP 64

There is no relation with the Win 7 installation and Win 10. They are on different partitions.
Hope you followed my post #26 instructions and disconnected the data drive (drive 0) before installing win 7.
Boot win 10, open device manager and look if there is any yellow alerts. Special look at network adapters.
For Win 7, open device manager and look if there is any yellow alerts. Use the Asus A88X-Pro disk that came with the MB to install all missing drivers.

Win 7 x64

This a mess...Win 7 device man. shows ethernet controller,SM Bus controller, (4) universale bus controllers and usb cam.
I am using my very slow Acer notebook,BTW am able to get my network working.only on this pc.,, As for win 10, the drivers disk won't boot, I am able to see it in windows explorer. I tried setup, autorun in the Run command box to no avail. I do have my cd drive as boot #1 in my Bios setup, but won't boot.

Drivers disk aren't boot able. Under windows, insert it on the CD / DVD drive, open Explorer and run setup.

Win 7 x64

Thanks, I did click on setup and it wouldn't work for some reason and then I read your post, so i tried it again and it did work. Win 7 is just fine and up to date. One curious message i get when I tried to open Win 10. It always opens in safe mode. I have done search on it and tried all options and have not been able to get out of safe i did repair. It did the trick, but now my Cortana has the sound, but it can't hear me or even type in the search box. Aside from that, I found out that i seem to have 2 versions of Win 10. One is corrupt and the other is the one that i am talking about now..and it says its in Volume 2. Needless to say, i do not know where that is by looking at disk manager. I would like to delete it, but hate to think that i may delete the wrong one, even if Cortana doesn't work...and even if I update win 10, it may do it to the corrupt version. I did see both versions shown, one marked default and the other it may be the default one that is corrupt. Win 7 is not even shown this time.I also want to take this moment to thank you for your preserverance in this matter. Happy New Year
