Windows Home Server Connector 64bit

Question: Windows Home Server Connector 64bit

Does anybody know where we can actually download software to do this???

I have seen 1 method to do it whereby you login to your server with a special adress that is supposed to work; HOWEVER, the address on the site is - http/servername:55000

The problem is that the typical login MUST use https://

So not sure if that is a typo of what. Neither one works anyway.
The other way I found was using the command line witha long string that seems to start but ultimately errors out.

Ideas? Someone must be running WHS with 64bit cleint.

Preferred Solution: Windows Home Server Connector 64bit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows Home Server Connector 64bit

There must be someone who is having trouble with 64 bit and WHS.

Hi all,
I've just installed an evaluation copy of Windows Home Server, and it looks great! Slight problem though; When using the connecter (either through the CD or through the shared space) it gives the error:
Unable to connect to your home server
The following issues may cause this problem:
-Your home server is not powered on
-A firewall on this computer is blocking the connection
-A proxy server is configured on this computer for the network connection
-My WHS is powered on
-I have tried disabling AVG
-I never have used a proxy, and don't see the need to.

I have tried this on two computers, both Laptops, Samsungs (one X50, one X60), running Vista Home Premium.
UPDATE: I can also confirm it didn't work for my XP laptop either (Samsung Q35)

Hello all,

I've looked around the forums and haven't found a decent answer to this...

Does anyone know a specific date for the release of the x64 version of the connector software for Windows Home Server?

I believe MS said in the first quarter of 2008, but I was hoping that someone had a more specific date than that... perhaps someone from MSDN or the WHS team can answer this question in greater depth???


Answer:Windows Home Server connector software (x64) release date?


The x64 Connector will be bundled in with Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 which Microsoft have slated (somewhat vaguely) as shipping in the first half of 2008.

My hunch is that we won't see this in Q1. As soon as a date is released we'll announce it over at We Got Served (We Got Served - The Windows Home Server Site)

Hey guys, After doing lots of research on these forums I am not able to find a solution to my issue. When I power on the server the blue system status indicator will not stop blinking. I can leave it all night and it still blinks in the morning. The lan activity light seems to be constantly blinking. I tried to change drive bays but still nothing. I have also attempted to do system recovery to factory reset, it goes through the whole setup up until it tries to locate the server but then fails. Im left scratching my head here.. I just purchased this item used so I am not sure whether it has worked or not.  Anyone out there has any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Oh yeah, one more thing when I go to my router setup, I do not see the lenovo listed on my DHCP list. But when I do the server factory reset it finds the server. Seems little odd but Im sure it has something to do with my issue.

Windows Updates have been a real thorn in my side since moving to the country where I have limited bandwidth ISP. I have 6-7 Windows PCs I (try to) keep updated, both XP and W7. I've tried downloading updates just ONCE using the Microsoft Update Catalog, but then I still have to note what pc needs what updates and install them manually.

Newegg's sale on Windows Home Server today has me wondering whether I might dedicate a PC to WSUS just to manage updates.

Can folks here with WSUS experience suggest whether this is worth doing? Or might be more trouble than it's worth vs. the manual "Update Catalog" method? Or tried w/WHS and that's a problem in itself? TIA for any feedback...

Answer:Windows Server Update Services and Windows Home Server -- worth doing?

I manage the WSUS implementation where I work. Overall, it's a pretty straightforward product. The only hassle will be going through the list of "all updates" for Windows 7 and for XP and declining the ones that don't pertain to your systems. The good news is that WSUS will determine for you, which are needed and which aren't and will place an icon next to the ones which you need.

I don't have experience with running WSUS on WHS myself....but I'm guessing it would be pretty much the same as doing it on a straight up Windows server.

As far as getting the clients to use your WSUS server, that's a simply registry change.

I have a file server at home with a Quad core, 4gb ram, and a 3tb of storage. It is running Ubuntu Desktop and sharing video files primarily. From my school I have access to a free copy of Windows Server 2008 R2. Other than the server I have 2 Windows 7 desktops, 1 Windows 7 laptop and 1 Windows Vista laptop.

I am interested in moving to a Windows setup as I am done with the ?Ubuntu? experiment. WHS looks like what I need, but I have a free copy of WS 2008 and I would miss the $50 for WHS. My goals can be described best as:

Need to Haves:
? File/media server (local network)
? Dedicated game server for various games for friends.
? Print server

Nice to Haves:
? Music/Video Streaming over the internet
? Automatic backup server
? File server over the internet
? Ability to manager other PC?s from the server

My ability as an admin:
? No experience
? Willing to learn and put forth initial effort to get setup
? Don?t have time to really spend more than 1 day moving from Ubuntu to the new setup.
? Don?t want to be stuck constantly screwing with things to get it right or keep it running.

What is going to be best option for my situation?

Answer:Help choose: Windows Home Server 2011 vs. Windows Server 2008 R2

Honestly, I use both in their proper settings, and unless you have a domain at home with multiple users, Windows Server 2008 R2 is overkill...and would require much more tweaking and add-in apps to do what you want. Given your write-up, WHS 2011 is the way to go. It does much of what you want out of the box, and is designed for people who don't want to become server admins (or at least not be forced to).

It was no harder than XP to install. Now, setting up could be a different story as that wasn't my job.

Be aware, though, that a lot of software will not install on that OS. It recognizes it as a "server" os and aborts the installation.

Hi, I just bought 2*2GB Crucial PC5300 667Mhz memory to upgrade my T61 which has 2*1GB installed before. Hardware insallation is smooth and easy, I followed every step in the service manual. Then I reboot the computer, BIOS can recognize that it has 4096MB ram installled. My operation system is Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64bit, which, unlike those 32bit system, I am pretty sure it can manage memories larger than 3GB. In the system, it found and and showed there is 4GB memory, however in other softwares like Everest, CPU-z, or Photoshop, even in task manager they all told me that there is only 2GB of memory. I was confused, and thinking it could be the problem of the new Crucial memory, then I install only ONE 2GB memory each time. They both can enter the system and be recognized as 2GB. So the new Crucial memories dont have any problem. Then I conbined the old 1GB memory and new Crucial 2GB memory to boot the system. Windows also can recognize 3GB of ram but only 2GB of it can be used.  It seems 2GB is the threshold of this system, any combination higher than 2GB can be recognized but cannot be used. However it should not be like this since it is Windows Server 64bit, theratically it can manage more than 512GB of memory. What happened? What should I do to eliminate this threshold?

Ok so my original computer was a Windows 7 Home Premium and that's the PC I used to work. I had REMOTE DESKTOP on it, it worked fine and yes it was a Windows 7 Home Premium..but yesterday my original pc got fried and smoke came out of it so I am afraid to turn it on.

I am now using my back pc, it is also a windows 7 home premium build 7600, and I remember I use to have remote desktop on it but I right clicked disabled one day a long time ago and after that I was never ever able to get it back. Ive been reading online that Windows 7 home premium does not have the remote desktop option, odd because my other pc had it. Point is.. I need to connect to my job's server asaaap, but I am unable to find a way to connect to their server, I have their ip address and a special login/pass the same way you do in windows remote desktop.

Answer:Which Windows XP OS to get? Home, Pro... or 64bit version

You should only consider Pro if you need the added administrative options...but most people won't really use these and therefore home is the best choice for most

x64 is relatively useless at this point as there as there are little to no 64 bit applications to actually use...x64 you should find to be more of a resource hog and of course support and bugs are a big issue with it

Hello everyone,

First post here since I have browsed through the whole net to find a solution to my problem. Im not a PC expert I tend to play video games mostly but I tend to have some knowledge about computers and have some close friends that know more than me in the OS's.

First of all I would like to say that this exact problem occured to me long time ago when I downloaded a Windows 7 OS from a torrent. back then I thought that its common for the OS to be buggy and doing these things so I switched back to windows xp. Back then I also had a gfx card that supported dx11 and the only reason that I wanted back then to install Windows 7 was the dx11 support for next gen games.

1 week ago or so bioshock 2 came out so I was happy that finally I could see dx11 in a video game. I went on to buy a legit copy of Windows 7 since I wanted to get over the problem it used to have with the downloaded version.

Now onto the problem. First of all back then we also tried several things to my computer now we are 99% sure its probably a driver problem. After reading some posts I might do some tweaking on the BIOS.

About my specs/drivers.
Im using a intel core duo 2.66ghz with geil ram running at 1066 mhz, also ATi Radeon 5870 with the latest drivers, using a razer deathadder mouse along with a microsoft reclusa keyboard. also using a logitech g25 steering wheel, and 2 external drives through usb. so all my usb ports are occupied. i also got a corsair 650watt supply.

Have anyone uses winxp 64bit?  Its probabily the best 64bit alternation to Vista and Linux.  I called Lenovo before and because they do not offer such OS, they said they will not support it at all. I clean install twice, and learn I can install everything correctly except:(1) Intel AMT driver won't work (no driver for it - disable via BIOS).  Intel Management module work ok.(2) ATI V5700 works ok if using FireGL driver from, but needs to force-mod it (let it recongize GPU signature)(3) Sound driver install ok (Device Manager show no error at all), but no sound (so actually install not ok) - "No Audio Devices" under Control Panel/Sound....  Note that I tried several solution on net and confirm its driver's problem.  The driver uses was intended for Vista 64.(4) Very dull screen.  Looks significantly darker compare to Vista.  I am unsure how this happened because it should be software independent.  When I use Lenovo's Winxp 32bit recovery cd the fully-configured XP-32 OS screen still look darker than on Vista. I am seriously thinking about Linux if I cannot find solution, particular (2) and (3). Any thoughts?

Answer:W500 using Windows XP 64bit (server 2003 core)

while a good OS, XP x64 has the least amount of driver support available.   your best bet is to try vista x64 drivers and XP x86 drivers if you can't get something to work.   lenovo has never supported XP x64 on thinkpads so you're on your own (with help of the forum, of course) in getting it to work.

Server 2008 R2 is a more fully functional product. You will be able to do similar things, but it might be a little more involved getting it set up and working. Plus, if you are interested in IT, you could use the Server 2008 R2 experience....but you won't get hired for your knowledge on Windows Home Server.

My vote is Server 2008 R2 without a doubt.

I've been running here at home Server 2003 Enterprise 180-Day Trial for about 3 years now. I received 2 cds/keys from my MCSE books I bought in college.
I can re-install this O/S as many times as I want and fully patch it no problem - must be MOL or something :shrugs:

However the only annoyance is every 180-days I need to take the time to re-install the O/S and whatever programs I run on it, set up the file and print, re-write permissions, etc....
It takes a good 3-4 days for it get to back up and running how I want it, or a wasted weekend.

Can I assume though Windows Home Server does not do FSMO roles?
As well are there any major features that would be lost? I havn't found any comparison charts......

Windows Home Server is not gonna be your solution. It does the same thing as your Server 2003 and there is a flaw with Home Server. You MUST format your ENTIRE Hard drive. If you have more then one you must format all of them.

I have an old ACER EasyStore H340, which figured out it should crash on me the other day.
In the unit I have 4 HD's, 1 for OS and 3 for DATA.

I have done restore (not factory reset) on the unit earlier, and that has been successfull. However I never had the amount of data on it as I do now.
So in a mildly panicked state, I need to restore again.

I started with that yesterday, and restore seems to be OK, but when the WHS v1 connector software shows after restore, it's just hanging and do not continue the installation so I can set a password on the unit.

So my questions are:
1) Would the connector software struggle due to my Windows 10 Technical Preview version?
2) Does it make sense to remove data disks, restore and put in data disk when done? If possible for WHS to reckongnize the data drives afterwards
3) Am I screwed?
tl;dr - Server recovery WHSv1 doesnt complete, and hangs when Connector software is about to be installed on Client computer.

Answer:Server 2008 -> Windows Home Server

Why not just use 2008 server as a file server
- shares for the Xbox
- web page for the music (although you can use shares as well)

theres all sorts of backups you can do.
Acronis backing up to the server autmatically
NTBackup backing up files/folders to the server
- all those should work fine on server 2008

Are the computers going to be part of the domain too?
XBox would probably need some sort of user/pass to access a domain server

But today? Today it got way bad. For a while it wouldn't even let me boot into windows. I 'm not sure what I did to work around that. I've been playing around with so much shit. Switching between the two sticks of ram I have, running scans, chkdsk, whatever. No problems found.
I read somewhere that the BIOS settings for the RAM needs to be set otherwise it will cause problems (since it defaults to automatic I think?) or by getting updates for the motherboard.
I'm honestly completely clueless. I installed the latest drivers for my video card but I have no idea what specs I need to change in the bios for my ram.
I've got: GeForce GTX 470
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT
Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield
ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA
So is it the RAM frequency? The voltage? Is it my video card? I reinstalled/updated drivers for that. What's the deal here? No malware or viruses showed up so it's not that. One thing I should mention is that all of this, I THINK, occured after one of the most recent windows updates... Read more

Hi all:

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I am getting a BSOD a couple times a week. It reads DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and STOP 0x000000D1 kernel memory dump. I've done basically anything suggested online... which is mostly just Windows updates, scan for viruses, and run diagnostic tools (memory and hard drive). I updated all my drivers through the Driver Manager. None of the diagnostic tools/tests I ran ever came back with any problems, but yet every now and then my computer will just crash. Attached is the diagnostics file requested.

Answer:how can i downgrade from Windows 7 home premium 64bit to 32

As far as I know, you would have to do a clean reinstall, using the 32-bit disk. I don't think you can "downgrade" without a clean install.

Answer:Best Protection For Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Your security programs are good. Consider adding the free versions of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and SUPERAnti-Spyware as on-demand scanners. But on those "tune-up" programs...they contain registry cleaners, which are the current "snake oil" of the interwebs these days.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Ea... Read more

I am new both here and Windows 7. Having a problem to run
Regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx under CMD prompt.

An application was installed to a computer with Windows 7 64bit Home Premium. But it could not run correctly telling me that it is comdlg32.ocx error.

Under C:\Windows\System32 after select CMD

Regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx

and an error message would be shown.

No problem to Windows7 Prof 64bit if I select run as Administrator to CMD there.

Any advice and suggestions are appreciated.



Answer:How can I run CMD as Administrator under Windows 7 64bit Home Premium?

Use the lower left Orb to 'Search'

Type in "CMD" (without the quotes).

When CMD.exe shows in the list, right click it and select Run as Administrator.

Elevated Command Prompt

However, that CommonDialog OCX you are trying to register is a VB6 control and VB6 can be problematic with 64bit.

Best of luck though

If you are intending to run VB6 apps then you might need to register quite a few more DLL's and OCX's and if so it might be quicker to put the whole regsvr32 list in a .BAT file and run that as Administrator.

As a help, these are the main components you may wish to consider:

regsvr32 itircl.dll
regsvr32 itss.dll
regsvr32 hhctrl.ocx
regsvr32 msxml4.dll
regsvr32 VBPrnDlg.dll (if used)
regsvr32 Msflxgrd.ocx
regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx
regsvr32 SYSINFO.OCX
regsvr32 MSCOMM32.OCX
regsvr32 COMCT232.OCX

My windows 7 Home Premium has been crashing for a while now, i have been getting the BSOD. The PC was bought directly from the store no changes have been made to the hardware nor the OS. I updated several drivers including the audio and video to see if the crashing would stop but it didn't. About 5 days ago the pc wouldn't start at all I thought it was a problem with the RAM (it originally came with 3gb a 1gb + 2gb sticks) I removed the 1 gb and it was able to boot. I tested both ram sticks individually to see if they had any errors, no errors found.At the moment the perfmon report was conducted only the 1gb stick was installed.

I have attached the perfmon report and several mini dump files. i also have norton 360 installed ive heard that it might be a cause for bsod, it would be greatly appreciated if you can help me figure what the problem is.

I've been using the Win 7 Ultimate RC 32 bit with very few problems since it became available.

I've just installed (48 hours ago) my official Win 7 Home Premium (64bit) bought and paid for and am getting lots of BSODs sometimes after 15min some times a couple of hours but in the last 48 hours I must have had 20 BSODs.

Basically I'm ready to explode. As you know, I'm running Ultimate. I recently decided to upgrade to a 64 bit OS. I purchased a 250 gb harddrive for it. (dualboot 32 bit and 64 bit win7) but my ISO file won't boot. I've tried everything. Yes, my PC is 64bit capable. Please help me.

P.S I don't have any spare flashdrives as they like breaking. And, sadly, no spare discs for a week. I can't eve partition because of some stupid disabled thing.

Thanks in advance, Rangi.

Answer:Can't install Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit?

You say you've tried everything, but that doesn't tell us what you've tried.

Did you download another ISO?

Did you try a slower burn?

Have you set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the first boot device?

What exactly do you mean by your USB flash drives keep breaking?

If you do have a bad burn or a corrupted ISO, then really you're screwed until you get some more blank discs.

Answer:BSOD (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit)

Hello Gaz, You've got a lot going on there...

Please fully disable your smartcard reader, not only the usb connection in device settings, but also the respective storage volumes it tries to create (if they are visible in device settings) i.e. F:\ (SD card), H:\ (SM card), G:\ (CF card) and I:\ (MS card)

Also please re-install (if you need it) your PS/2 mouse, its driver seems to be messed up.

Then reboot. If you still have problems, next step is to:

- Look at "STOP 0x0000003B" Stop error on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 when you use some IEEE 1394 devices
- and follow: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

and please give us a little more info on when, how, in what circumstances you get these crashes.

Some background on your videocard would be good too as it is also mentioned as an issue...

I'm asking this on behalf of a friend.

He has a new server, 64bit hardware. 939 with nForce chipset.
I can get exact specs if needed.

Also has Server 2003 Enterprise SP1, v.1069 x64 which is the "educational" version. It comes via the MS academy server or something.

In any case, so he has all this 64 bit stuff right? He also loaded Nvidia's 64bit nForce set.

Now, there is no other software on this accept the one program which this whole thing was built for. It required 64 hardware and software. There is no antivirus or antispyware or 3rd party stuff, etc...

The problem was first seen when this program said it required .NET 2.0. Well, big deal, he goes on Windows updates, sees the updates, but after they install, explorer can't run any more! It crashes. But if he uninstalls the update, it works again.

He tried a whole handfull of updates (1 at a time), but any update he does, explorer is crashing upon restart and the update has to be uninstalled. So he can't load updates, or .NET framework. Here is the error log entry that happens after any update is applied:

Answer:Explorer crash after ANY windows update Server 2003 64bit

It seems that the version he installed was a slightly earlier version with a beta Service Pack 1.
He was not able to find a full install of x64 Service Pack 1, so could not reload it, or put on SP2 or anything. He ended up having to use the trial version of the real Server 2003 (for now), and that worked fine. So there was something wrong with that install or more likely with the beta SP1 it came with.

So for now, if you have this problem, check your Service Pack version!

I am in a bit of a pickle. I shall start to tell you my tale, and you can see if you can help me. About a month or so ago I dug out an older pc running Windows XP. This computer is loaded with old software that I neither have the time, nor gumption to track down and reinstall. This install works just fine. So I made a ghost image of it, and backed it up. Fast forward to today, I am trying to use a piece of software that requires Vista, and will not run on Windows xp. I thought "I have that ghost image, why not try to see if I can upgrade this pc to Vista (as foolish as that sounds), a weekend project, one might think." Well, I am running into some issues (surprise, surprise), I start the Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit (either 32 or 64 bit, does the same thing), it says checking system, etc, then when I starts the installer it freezes and the installer.exe goes into not responding. (I checked this with Task Manager), and no matter if I load it off of a DVD, a USB thumbdrive, or off a partition on the hard drive (fastest read/write time), it always freezes. Now, on a lark I threw in a blank drive into the computer, and I am able to install a fresh copy of Vista no issues. So it isn't the hardware, isn't the installation media, it isn't the phase of the moon. Something about the Windows xp install isn't letting it continue. Now, since Vista is coming up on twelve years old, certain documentation on the Microsoft website as been phased out, 404d and etc. I am trying to track down a... Read more

Answer:Not urgent - Trying to upgrade Windows xp home 32bit to Windows Vista 64bit

I would surmise you need to wipe the existing XP partitions before installing Vista. Replace your XP drive. Boot Vista and at the screen that asks for language press Shift + F10. This will open a command prompt. Type the following commands.
list disk
select disk X     Where X is the number associated with the disk you will be installing Vista to. If you only have one drive it will be 0.
clean                 This will delete all existing partitions and set the drive for a clean install so perhaps you should be sure your ghost image is good.

hi alecro, you have a bit of a problem here, you cannot upgrade to ultimate as the existing version of vista that you have installed is service pack 2, you would need to contact microsoft so they can send you out a new disc with SP2 pre-loaded, the only other way is to create your own disc using the original disc and pre-load SP2 using vlite or similar software, sorry.

The files names are shown ok in Total Commander or in Excel when copied, but not in Windows Explorer.

I've tried to enable Numerical Sorting for All Users but it didn't help.

What could be the source of the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit ordering problem

Have you tried clicking on the Name column header to sort by name (click again if in descending order instead of ascending)?

I had Vaio Notebook which had dual VGA mode running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bits. Since day 1, it was randomly freeze or crash. This happened almost everyday when I turn it on. I've search thoroughly on the Net but found nothing close to my problem. Recently I found it myself, what seem the cause of the problem. It seem come from my VGA driver on local services "AMD External Events Utility" with executable file "C:\Windows\system32\atiesrxx.exe". Since I disabled this services, my system seem to work fine until now.

Hope this help you that had the same problem till AMD release fixes to this issue.

Hi forum.

Does anybody know a good website to download a legit copy of windows 7 32bit or 64bit so I can do a clean installation and activate it with my Key.

Also what should I do after the installation? What should be the first things to do. Install drivers?

Thanks Scott

Answer:[SOLVED] Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit or 32bit

The only place to download a legit copy of Windows is from Microsoft.
If you already have a product key, what happened to your Windows 7 DVD?

If the key you have is for a pre-installed OEM copy supplied with a new PC, you can't use that key to install a retail version. The OEM key which is on a sticker on a PC or laptop is valid only for that pre-installed copy of Windows, so If you need to do a clean installation from a Microsoft DVD or download, you will have to buy it complete with a new key & licence.

Having said that im having a BSOD issue (0x01E) on a windows 7 32bit home premium machine. It happens more often than not on shutdown but has occasionally happened on startup.

Is Windows 7 . . .- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64- the original installed OS on the system? Yes- an OEM or full retail version? OEM- OEM = came pre-installed on system- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer - What is the age of system (hardware)?

I've seen a few posts similar to this one, but none of the fixes I found could solve my problem.

I built a computer recently and am held up by the windows 7 home premium 64bit installation.

My specs are as follows:

Intel Core i5 4670k
2x8gb kingston ddr3 2133mhz RAM
Corsair H100i CPU cooler
Xfx 750 W fully modular PSU
XFX double dissipation R9 290X
MSI ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboard Z97 GUARD-PRO
Western Digital 7200rpm 1tb HDD

I am installing windows 7 home premium via a flash drive due to a lack of an optical drive.

I have gotten to various stages in the installation process, the furthest being the restart after copying windows files, expanding windows files, installing features, and installing updates. After the restart I see the option to open up my BIOS for a second, then the computer begins to load windows files. What follows is the windows 7 logo for a few moments, then the screen turns black, but is still on, and the computer is still running.

Initially assuming this was an amd driver issue, I removed the 290x which had been connected to my monitor via hdmi, and hooked up the monitor via VGA to my motherboards IO. I never got past the previous restart without the same problem.

I also often get stuck on the step: Copying Windows Files (0%)...
Whether or not the graphics card is installed.

If there is an apparent fix, it would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Installation Problems

Make sure you have written a fully intact ISO to stick from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Set HDD first to boot in BIOS setup, trigger stick using one-time BIOS Boot menu key, which may prevent the stick from starting after reboot. If not unplug it.

My webcam was constantly being used by another program, thus making the use of it practically impossible. After uninstalling the programs which may be associated and reinstalling the drivers the problem persisted. Somehow the problem was solved yesterday, when I tried to have a video conversation with one of my friends the camera launched up and send my video to the recipient. However, today I received a BSOD during Windows boot and did a full recovery to factory settings using the backup DVDs I have. Everything seemed to be fine at first, yet after I installed Team Viewer, Google Talk, Microsoft Office, Nokia Ovi, VLC player the problem showed up again. Is there a method to find which program uses my camera? I do not want a full Windows reinstall again because the problem shows up again. Any suggestion is appreciated, thanks for your contributions.

Anyways, I tested the RAM (each 4GB stick for 24+ hours with Memtest 86+) they both passed without errors. I tested the hard drives with the WD HDD diagnostic utility, they both passed without error as well. I ran Prime95 to stress the CPU, I let that run for 24+ hours, no errors.

The dumps seem to indicate a hardware problem, though one blames Symantec. You might try removing it completely according to these directions: Norton Product Support | Installation and Uninstall

Replace it with MSE for now: Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

Remove one RAM stick and see if stability improves. If not, try just one other stick.

Good Morning All! So I've spent the last week troubleshooting random BSOD's on my 2 month old HP Pavilion elite....I've replaced the original ATI video card with an Nvidia GT 240, uninstalled McAfee anti-virus and loaded AVG (which I've read on here also causes problems), ran the Windows memory checks on each stick of RAM individually, with no errors, and also ran extensive benchmarks as stress-tests, including super-pi to test the processor, and 3D mark vantage for the video card, all with no problems. However, if I attempt to run facebook apps, or Arma II, I will undoubtedly get a blue screen, either after 20 minutes or 20 seconds....I've experienced four this morning, and attached two of the details here:

I first used program called WipeDrive to wipe the entire hard drive. It detected two hard drives, 32GB(I assume its SSD) and the 465GB(HDD?). Formatted both, extracted installation drives for Intel Smart Response Technology on a flash drive, Load the Drivers on Windows Installation Screen, and installed Windows 7 onto the 32GB Hard Drive.

When the installation is done, I open Disk Management, and format and partition the 465GB part of the Hard Drive. So now when I open 'My Computer', it shows two Hard Drives,

Local Disk (C: ) 32GB with 11.8 Free and
Second Drive (E: ) 465GB of 465GB free

Did I do this correctly? I just have a bad feeling I did something incorrect and it should still display 500GB instead of two separate drives... Thanks for your help in advance!

Answer:Fresh Install Windows 7 Home 64bit Hybrid SSD

Looks like you didn't install things correctly, if you wish to use the Intel Smart Response technology.

Chipset Software — Intel? Smart Response Technology User Guide

I haven't tried it. My own preference is to use a medium-sized SSD (120GB) for the OS and applications, and a spinner for data.

As you see, 32GB will work as an OS drive for Windows 7, but it's a bit small. You could probably continue with your current setup, as long as you made sure to install enough applications to the HD instead of the SSD. (Disabling hibernation would also free up space on the SSD equal to the amount of RAM in your notebook.)

i use MSE as anti virus ; today it was showing ----> real time protection is turned off
i couldn't turn it on after several attempts
so i uninstalled MSE, reboot my laptop then installed it again. after i worked on for 2/3 hours , as i was about to reboot my laptop all i could get to " see start up repair "

i never got the option to select the startup repair , it sarted up itself all i could see is the second snap shot like seen in this post Startup Repair

i think i have started it up twice or thrice as per Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times only once i got the option to click NEXT , after doing so it said something like - ur system will restart if the problem is fix if not start up repair will start. and start up repair started.

I have this problem with Windows 10 Home edition. When I open some basic text file, .srt or .txt for example, it has different encoding than it has when it was saved. It looks like I have wrong default encoding set in Windows because I need to change manually encoding of these files and then I can repair saved data. For example "ě" was saved in the file as "?", "č" as "?", etc.
I tried to change OS language - didn't help.
Looking through options in Chrome was useless as well - I have no problem while browsing. Downloading text files with IE, Opera or Firefox brought same results.
I am downloading them manually from site dedicated to making subtitles movies and series.
When I downloaded text file on different computer the czech symbols were fine. Sending downloaded file through mail, Facebook or transferring it via flash disk changed Czech symbol into gibberish. Even compressed text file was changed when I opened it.
Creating files in Notepad or Notepad++ are also encoded in coding that does not support Czech.

I have no clue how to fix this problem. Also, I don't want to reinstall OS if possible.

Welcome to TenForums @Alorain

Are you running the Creators Update? Do you have the latest updates? If so, apparently Microsoft don't know (yet) how to fix it either...

Known issues in this update


Installing KB4034674 may change Czech and Arabic languages to English for Microsoft Edge and other applications.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Cumulative Update KB4040724 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.632

The next cumulative update is due on 10th October, a fix may come then - or it may come in the Fall Creators Update.
