Even managed to score my firefox settings thanks to a timely file sync of the Documents folder. Much much appreciation.

Is this still open? And if so, I'd like to mention that I'm having some issues, I think they may be related, to before.

I'm on my new drive, and I'm getting an error while trying to update to W7 SP1 (it took quite some time for the updates to cycle through). The error code is 800F0900. Googling around, I found that this might indicate problems with my hard drive.


Thinking this was the case, I tried to run chkdsk from the repair disk again. It worked and managed to complete in under an hour (I took this as a good sign as running very slowly despite being smaller was a problem my old drive had), but it still fixed a few things.

Restarting, I tried to run the updater, and it failed once again. I've also tried a direct download of the SP1 installer from microsofts site, which also failed with the same error.

Remembering something you recommended before, I ran sfc /scannow and it said there were errors it could not repair.

Do you have any new advice or recommendations? The only thing I could think of that might cause an issue like this to follow to a new HD would be A) motherboard/other hardware issues B)virus/malware of some kind C)some program I install.

Overall, okay. She seems to be running okay, but now I've got a new problem, it won't install SP1. The copy of W7 I had was pre-SP1, so I had to run all the updates. It took quite a while to finish running them, and I'd installed most of my programs and files before I'd finished. Unfortunately, it is refusing to install the Service Pack update. I've tried running the program from both an ISO disk of the install and an executable file.

I'm sorry to hear that. If you like, go ahead and create a new thread about the SP1 issue along with any error messages that you get while trying to install it. Hopefully we'll be able to help with it.

As you scaned your Hd a few times for error, It would be worth Checking the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
