I cannot boot up my computer past Windows logon even in Safe Mode following re-transferring my files with Easy Transfer.

The new Windows 7 Home Premium was working perfectly until I restored by file with Easy Transfer.

I have run Disk self-tests and received two Failures.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

If you have saved restore points, you can boot to the 7 install DVD and select the restore point utility.

Cheers!

Thanks Robert. Unfortunately, there were no restore points.
It is strange that I could not use Last Known Good Configuration either. I have tried Low Resolution, and remove signature demands from drivers. There doesn't seem any alternatives left.

I have used the Wind 7 disk Repair feature and that says that there is nothing to repair.

Any more ideas, guys?

Have you tried SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

There's always re-install.

Thanks Dave,

I have successfully clean reinstalled. Everything is running beautifully. Good sound, and perfect display which is something on a Pavilion zd8000.

Thanks everyone for your help.

God Bless

Your welcome Cheril, sometimes a clean install is the best thing you can do.

If you don't already, you should consider making image backups. You can restore in a fraction of the time it takes to install and won't have to re-setup everything.

XP and Windows 7
 
 

I just bought a HP PAvilliion Laptop and along with it the belkin easy transfer cable. Old laptop is a HP/Compaq as well. Installed the easy transfer CD that came with the Belkin cable and activated the easy transfer on the new computer. XP software on old and Win 7 on new. Got all the way to the connect part....that is when neither computer can connect to the other. There are three lights that are on the Belkin cable one on each side of the middle part signifying each computer and both are light up. A center one flashing showing it is trying to connect. Any help you can offer to get them to speak to each other other?

Hello tscinc, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

The last time I checked out USB Transfer Cables, there was NO support (drivers) for Windows 7. Since you did not identify a part number for the Belkin product, I have no way of investigating its suitability for Windows 7. If you wish to add that info, perhaps even a screen shot if the Belkin CD claims to work with Windows 7, we might be able to look into this further.

The Easy Transfer Wizard will create a large file, and that can be a problem when using laptops. With a desktop, I can just open the case and temporarily connect the old hard drive and copy the file to the new hard drive. Unless your laptop has options for two hard drives, this won't work. Other options are an external USB or Firewire hard drive, good idea for backups also, or a home network.

Cheers!
Robert
