Windows 7: install problems

21 Sep 2010   #21

Windows 7 64-bit Home

ok, is it possible to reboot from the "install windows" screen that i started from?

edit: my original post said i was getting the "bootmgr missing" and when i tried the install i got the 0x80070570 error. i called it the "missing or corrupt file" error

I thought you were about finished with the Clean All wipe? type "Exit" DISKPART, then "exit" again from Command Prompt to boot into Install, choosing Custom install Drive Options to make sure your partitions are correctly formatted, then install to first partition.

Strongly suspect RAM: either too much, bad stick or slot. So if it fails on wiped HD, try install with only 2gb of RAM, then swap RAM, try another slot. Test RAM using memtest86 for 5-6 passes, or overnight to stress test.

Windows 7 64-bit Home

the clean all finished, i continued with install, formatted my 100gb partition, and created the second partition with the rest of the unallocated space, when i did that it created the 100mb partition.. so i selected the 100gb partition and clicked next. it got to expanding files about 45% and gave me the 0x80070570 error

should i remove some ram and try again?

edit I: i wanted to reboot (the wording was kind of backwards, apologize) to check the bios. for AHCI settings

edit II: there is also an update for my bios, but i dont think it will help anything..

edit III: sorry for all the edits, my mind is a little sporadic right now - i noticed that when i boot into bios that it doesnt show any of my sata devices (optical drive or wd hard drive).. what setting would i change to put it in AHCI mode?

You may not have SATA controller settings if they are not there near where your drives are detected.

I would remove all but 2gb of RAM next to try install.

Remember to ground yourself by touching case first, feet off of carpet. Remove RAM very slowly and carefully, never force it.

Windows 7 64-bit Home

i removed all but 2gb of ram, and booted to the bios

on the main tab i see this

system time
system date
>SATA 1 : [Not Detected]

>SATA 2 : [Not Detected]
>SATA 3 : [Not Detected]
>SATA 4 : [Not Detected]
>SATA 5 : [Not Detected]
>SATA 6 : [Not Detected]
>Storage Configuration

>System Information

if i go into storage configuration it gives me these options:

SATA configuration [Enhanced, Compatible, Disable]
Configure SATA as [IDE, RAID, AHCI]
Hard Disk Write Protect

IDE Detect Time Out (Sec)

i assume i set configure sata as to AHCI?

also, under the advanced tab -> Onboard Devices Configuration i see this:

HDA Controller [Enabled, Disabled]
Front Panel Type [HD Audio, AC97]
Realtek LAN1 [En, Dis]
Lan Boot ROM [Disabled, Enabled]
Onboard 1394 Controller [En, Dis]
J-Micron SATA/PATA Controller [Enabled, Disabled]
Marvell 9123 SATA Controller [IDE Mode, AHCI Mode, Disabled]
Marvell 9123 Boot ROM [Auto, Enabled, Disabled]
Onboard USB 3.0 Controller [En, Dis]

*whichever option is listed first in brackets is what it is currently set to, the other are options.

i can give you the rest of the bios options if you think it may help.

It appears you have no SATA devices plugged in. Are you using IDE hard drives and cd/dvd drives?

You also did not say what the SATA controller settings were, just the options.

If you have SATA devices I would try AHCI settings first, then IDE mode.

You may need the BIOS update if it solves a problem with the Marvel Controller and the DVD drive.

Try install with only 2gb of RAM, then try swapping the sticks.

Windows 7 64-bit Home

i am not using IDE anything, I plugged both my hard drive and my blu ray/dvd drive into the SATA 6gb/s ports on the mobo

edit: the 6gb/s sata controller is the marvell

the wd caviar black i bought was the 6gb/s version, the optical drive doesnt need to be plugged into that correct?

Are they registering in BIOS? Your last post doesn't show they are.

What are current SATA controller settings?

Windows 7 64-bit Home

the first option listed in the brackets is what the options are currently set to.. i still see not detected in my bios

how could that be? i just booted from the optical drive and was partitioning the HDD...

edit: my devices, hdd and optical drive, are not being detected in my bios.. also i noticed that just sitting in my bios the CPU temps are 52C ... that seems high?

Are your fans working? Is the dust cleaned out from the CPU? Might need to give it a break.

What happens trying install with one memory stick?
