Windows 7: Is a clean install possible with recovery discs

22 Nov 2014   #11

Win 7 Ultimate x 64

let me try to clarify just where I'm at with this machine.
Downloaded ISO File, installed and HD formatted. Check that off!
Was able to get WIN 7 running but was missing a lot of drivers for this tablet. I tried reinstalling what I had.
Since I was able to format the HD (something I haven't been able figure out how to do previously), I figured it wouldn't hurt to just install the factory software that came with the machine and get those missing drivers installed. With that done... I know get the message missing bootmgr!
I've changed the boot selection back to see the HD first, but continue to get the Missing Bootmgr message.

Thanks for taking the time to help me with my computer issues.

Do the format and install again, but this time go to the manufacturers web site to download the drivers you are missing.

Start with Chipset then do the others you need.

Did you follow the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7
for drivers which are important enough they are printed in red?

After install you may need to install your Network LAN driver to get online, then the first thing to do is enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to Check For Updates, run all Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until no more are offered.

Only then should you import any missing drivers in Device Manager from the link Rich gave you.

Install with recovery discs
Hi, have just bought a laptop with Win 7 on it but want to replace the 5400rpm drive with a 7200rpm one. Will I be able to use the recovery discs I made to install on a fresh drive or do they only work if there is already a recovery partition on the drive I want to install onto.
