Digitally signed my driver for installation on a Win7 Ultimate SP1 in a virtual machine of VMWare

Question: Digitally signed my driver for installation on a Win7 Ultimate SP1 in a virtual machine of VMWare

Hi all,
I am wondering how do I digitally sign my driver so that it can be installed on a Win7 Ultimate SP1 in a VMWare virtual machine. I have used Visual Studio 2013 to sign my driver and cat files using a certificate I obtained from GlobalSign. Both of these
files passed the signtool check, but when trying to install in this virtual machine it generates an error code 52.
Thanks in advance for any help

Preferred Solution: Digitally signed my driver for installation on a Win7 Ultimate SP1 in a virtual machine of VMWare

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Am trying to install HP Deskjet 630c printer and it keeps telling me this driver is not digitally signed. I just put Windows xp on the computer. What does this mean and can I get help? I am not very computer literate and any help would greatly appreciated. Many thanks Paula.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

Good evening,

I just reinstalled XP on a friends machine that was pooched. It is a Dell DIM4400. Everything is working except for the sound card. It is a built in sound card. When the computer boots up the new hardware wizard comes up asking for a driver for a realtek AC97 Audio device. I have tried everything I can to install the driver but each time I try I get an error that the driver is not digitally signed and it won't install. If I try in safe mode it installs but I get a blue screen upon startup and have to reboot. I do not have the orignial Dell cd but I have tried every driver from the Dell site that should work on this model of computer. I have updated the chip set drivers on the motherboard etc. I just can't get this sound card to work. Any advice??

Hey,

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

Can I get around this?
 

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

G'day. I'm trying to install my old VisionPLus DVB-T card into a Windows 7 O/S box and it won't recognise any of the old drivers. When I try to install the TwinHan Digital tv software, Windows can't/ won't install them.

I've downloaded and tried the latest (DigitalTV 3.4 Build 19-02_20090212) and windows comes up with "Driver not found". I've tried to install in compatability mode but still no good.

When installing the above, it identifies my card as “PCI CX-87A with MCU DVB-S/-C/-T/ATSC card”.

Out of all the available drivers on Twinhan's site, which would be the best for my card?

Thanks

The one written for Vista would be my choice, probably not one for W7 yet, may never be.

Looks like MS ha removed a way to disable unsigned drivers protection in Vista64, so probably is the same for 7

The issue is known to affect PeerGuardian, TV tuner cards, Gigabit Ethernet adapters, CD/DVD-ROM/RW drives, and many other devices.Click to expand...

Looks like unsigned drivers are a no go for x64 Vista and Windows 7, well there are some workarounds in the article above, sounds like a hassle.
Not sure if this software will work with W7

is it necessary to sign driver in win xp 32 sp2.

when i google i got that it is necessary for win vista , win7 and other upper version.

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

Hi

The last few times I started my computer, the system comes with the warning:

"Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Driver: Broadcom NetDetect Driver
Service: BASFND
Publisher: Broadcom Corporation
Location: C:\Program Files\Bra...\BASFND.sys"

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

The problem is that I have no idea of which program or hardware is using this driver. All the drivers I have installed in my computer are from the computer manufacturer.
I have also been at Broadcoms homepage and there is plenty of things to download there. But I dont want to ruin anything.

Suggestions on what to do?

System: Windows Vista 64
 

Answer:Windows requires a digitally signed driver

Broadcom is your onboard ethernet, I don't see why it would suddenly complain unless there was an update.:confused You can disable driver signing but it only cures the symptom and not the cause.

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.
Regards,
William

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Hello,
I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

I have x220 with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Device manager shows under Storage Controllers "Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller," but there is a yellow triangle with "!" and a Device Status Code 52 message "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device." I checked in C:\Drivers\WIN\Multicard and found two *.cat files--which, I understand, are required to confirm digital signature. Each of them (ridisk.cat and risdxc.cat) has a signed and valid certificate! So what is going on? Will the card reader work? Is there something wrong with how Windows 7 is treating the Ricoh driver, which I downloaded from the Lenovo site? Why should I be getting this grief?

Hello,
 
Perhaps the driver is damaged?
 
Try deleting the Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller from the Device Manager and then restarting the computer in order to let the Device Manager re-detect it and re-install the device drivers.  Does that solve the problem?

Hey,
I have a pretty powerful computer... So, I want to allow some people to Remote Access, and use it sometimes to use some simple programs like Word, FTP, Photoshop or something... But... I'm on the computer all the time. I want them to use my computer, but not see what is on my screen...

What software should I use? VMWare?
 

Answer:VMWare? Virtual Machine

What OS are you using? If you've got XP with SP2, then you can download an unofficial 'patch' that will allow multiple sessions using Remote Desktop. With it you can be logged on locally while another person can be logged on remotely (without the patch the Remote session would lock the console session or vice-versa).

http://www.kood.org/terminal-server-patch/
VMWare will work well for security reasons. However, if you trust these people enough to let them log onto your computer then Remote Desktop may be adequate.

Sorry if this is the wrong board to ask this, but I wasn't quite sure where to put it.
Is it possible to use VMWare to install an OS that you can boot up on when you do an "actual" reboot on the computer instead of using VMWare to start it up?

Answer:Installing An OS using VMWARE (not as a virtual machine)

If you want to be able to boot directly in the OS it has to be installed. Create a second partition for the OS you want to use, install the OS to that partition and create a dual-boot (or use a boot manager like Lilo or Grub if the two OS's don't use the same boot loader). Make some research before you install since installing another OS on another partition of the same hard drive will overwrite the boot sectors of the previous OS.

What operating systems are you talking about ?

I decided (more out of academic interest than need) that I would setup windows 10586 in a vm on VMWARE, and also Insider version.

Problem was I could not find anyway of doing this. You could install first version, but how to install second version, as you automatically boot to the installed version?

I looked on various sites including Macrium, and I saw dual booting was possible, but all videos referred to windows, linux where you can install linux as dual boot within windows.

Some sites said it was not possible but I was sure if you could modify boot files with linux there had to be a way with two windows installs.

I am sure it can be done using pre-prepared virtual hard drives and initially jumping to a command prompt to attach vhds etc. I did not want to do that as you cannot upgrade OS in vhds.

So I had a ponder, and my good old friend Macrium Reflect Free came to mind.

So I installed 10586 in a vm, installed Macrium Reflect Free, and used that to create a boot entry, unsure if this would work in a vm.

To my surprise, it worked first time. So now it was a simple case of:-

1) creating an image backup of an existing install 10 pro, home, Insider, 8 or even 7. I put this on a large usb flash drive.

2) shrinking c drive in vhd to create enough space (could have expanded drive instead)

3) restart vm, booting into Macrium and restore C drive partition only (not system partitions) from backup to unallocated space.

4) use Macrium 'fix windows boot problem'... Read more

Answer:Dual booting inside a VMWARE Virtual Machine.

You can even combine two individual virtual machines to a single dual boot vm. In Hyper-V this is extremely easy, you just copy the .vhd or .vhdx file of the other vm to your first vm, mount it and add to boot menu (adding a VHD to boot menu for native boot: Hyper-V - Native Boot VHD - Windows 10 Forums)

You are using VMware, a .vmdk file. That needs first to be converted to .vhd file but then it's easy. See this tutorial on our sister site Seven Forums for converting a VMDK file to VHD and adding it to native boot: Windows 10 - Test Try with No Risk, No Install - Windows 7 Help Forums (Part One steps 2 & 3 for tools needed, Part Three for converting VMDK to VHD, Part Four to add it to boot menu).

1) creating an image backup of an existing install 10 pro, home, Insider, 8 or even 7. I put this on a large usb flash drive.

2) shrinking c drive in vhd to create enough space (could have expanded drive instead)

3) restart vm, booting into Macrium and restore C drive partition only (not system partitions) from backup to unallocated space.

4) use Macrium 'fix windows boot problem'... Read more

Hi,
This has happened to me several times that by mistake I press the close button on the Virtual machine rather than some other intended program. This leads to data loss and VM instability several times. Can it be made to ask for confirmation before closing abruptly, or is there any way by which it will be paused by default when close button is pressed?

Apologies if this isn't the right forum to post this question


A few months back I installed a vmware virtual machine, and put winxp x86 on it.

In creating it I allocated 2gb of ram from the 6gb that my pc was running.

I haven't used it much recently so I removed the virtual pc, but for some reason the 2gb of ram was not released back.

I was wondering if any of you guys might know how I could get windows to recognize it without having to re install.
Im running windows 7 x64, currently with 4gb of ram, although I have 6gb connected to my board.

At 1st I thought there was maybe a faulty stick, but all 3 are recognized separately in each slot so that can't be the cause.

Things I have tried:

- Uninstalled vmware
- searched for vmware file associations and folders, and deleted them.
- deleted all vmware registry files

And now I'm dead out of ideas

Hopefully you guys might be able to help me out on this.

My specs:


OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate , Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 26 Stepping 5
Processor Count: 8

I run VMware Workstation on a Linux host. On the Linux version, that warning is both the default and a configuration option.

You didn't specify which version of VMware you run, or which OS you run it in, but I have to believe that option is available in the configuration utilities.

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone may be able to help me with the following. I tried to use VMware's free "converter" software to convert my physical HP machine to a virtual machine. However, when trying to run the virtual machine, it says that the virtual machine has two processors & that it is limited to only using one processor, & therefore, will not start. The physical machine is a dual core processor, but I see no way to configure the virtual machine so that it only has one processor.

It seems to me the software should just configure itself to at least run, and from there a person can try to tweak the settings and be advised if there are limitations at that point, but that would make to much sense. Alternatively, they could provide an easy way to change the settings so you can at least get the thing to run, but again, that would make to much sense.

Anyway, if anyone can help me get the virtual machine clone running, please let me know.

Thanks
John

A few years ago we bought a new car and I purchased a computer-based shop manual for the car from eBay. I installed it on two of my Windows 7 computers;a 32-bit version and a 64-bit version. Both of the installations went fine and the program runs fine on both of them.
 
The program runs in an environment called VMware Player, rather than just running in Windows 7 directly. I know very little about virtual machines, but I think that this one is running Windows XP as the OS in the window.
 
Yesterday, I decided to install the program on a computer that I built last year using an Asus B150 motherboard and an Intel Core i3-6100 processor. The installation went okay, but when I tried to launch the program in VMware Player, I get the BSOD with the following information:
 

 VMware Player.JPG   86.54KB
  0 downloads
 
I have no idea what this is telling me. Can anyone point me to a solution to this problem?
 
Thanks in advance

Answer:Windows Crashed in VMware Player's Virtual Machine Window

If the program works fine on other systems you have...first thing I would do is uninstall it and reinstall, to see if the error was just a quirk of Windows.
 
If I still had a problem with said program...I would do the following.
 
1.  Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 Checkmark the following checkboxes:  List last 10 Event Viewer log  List Installed Programs  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 Click Go and paste the content into your next post.

You cannot do this. Digital signing must be done by the creator of the driver. If an individual user could do this the entire exercise would be pointless.

Hi,
I had installed RHEL4 in RHEL4 in my VMWare Virtual disk.
But now due to some reason, it's not booting up.
How can I recover the data stored in the .vmdk file?
Thanks in advance,
-pkd
 

Answer:How to recover files in VMWare virtual machine disk(.vmdk) file?

If you have another VM then you can add the non-booting vmdk file to it as another hard drive. At least that's the theory, in my experience what boots is the added vmdk file so you would actually want to add a good/bootable vmdk file to the non-booting VM.

Then boot it up and the files will be accessible.

So, to get started, you need to create another RHEL4 VM.

Hope that makes sense.

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error?

From what I know if these progams are running and they aren't digitally signed then they are most likely a form of a virus. I can manually find the official conhost.exe from windows/system32 and run it, that creates a separate instance of it running, making two, the official and the supposed virus. Neither of the supposed virus executables do not open any properties when I right click and select properties from the task manager, which is another red flag. I ran a fully updated malwarebytes scan and an avast scan outside of windows and had no returns of an infection. I could not find the location of the virus executables and I am looking for some help.

You don't have to worry about system files that are not digitally signed, it only means microsoft hasn't run extensive tests on them.

The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

I have a macro in a .doc file developed in word 2002.
It runs OK with security settings "Run All" or "Ask before run", but if I sign the file with a certificate that I made myself (with SELFCERT.EXE), change the setting to "only run signed macros" the doc file will open without warnings, but the macro wont run.
What is missing?

I cannot use the CD drive on my Laptop, the device manager shows the a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in it. I have updated the driver but it still wont load and I get the following message from the device manager: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39).

Any suggestions as to how to fix the problem?

Answer:CD drive of Satellite Pro A200 is not digitally signed?

Did you tried to remove the drive in the device manager?? That helps sometimes, because windows reinstalls in the most cases the previously removed (deleted) hardware.

Since when does the problem occur that your drive cannot be recognized?

Answer:Digitally signed printer drivers with windows XP

I have a home network. All my machines were running Windows ME. I have an HP Deskjet895Cxi printer attached to one of the machines. I could print to the printer from any machine. Now I have a new machine running Windows XP and the printer is attached to this machine. I can print OK from the XP machine but none of the other ME machines can. I see in the printer properties that I can add a printer driver for ME but every time I try this (using the latest ME driver from HP)I get the message that the driver is not digitally signed and the driver is not loaded. How do I get a digitally signed driver for my printer?Alan

Bought a Clicksmart 310 Logitech cam for my new xp Toshiba, Satellite model. When I try to install, pop-up says the cam is not digitally signed and it may harm my hardware either now or in the future. This is the 2nd cam I bought and got the same message on the first one. Please help me. [email protected]
 

Answer:Webcam not digitally signed. The Box says it is xp compatible, but a warning pop-up.

This means that Microsoft has not certified the drivers themselves. If logitech is telling you it works in XP that means they have tested it. Make sure you are installing the latest drivers for the camera.

Since upgrading to Outlook 2010, I get no error message and neither do the recipients of my emails, however, the emails that I receive have no text in the body of the emails. I If the email is only signed and not encrypted, I can read the body of the email on my blackberry though, therefore, I know the text is there.

I wanted to get some collective thoughts from the masses, so I am asking this around. I wanted to "test" Windows 7 on a couple of laptops before actually installing the OS, so I am using a virtual environment. Call me skeptical, but I don't trust that the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor tool will give me a 100% answer as to whether or not I will be able to jump OS's seamlessly and with only minor issues, so I'm trying it this way.I installed the free program that Sun offers, Sun VirtualBox, and loaded the Windows 7 Pro. I highly recommend this program over others. It's quite simple and very reliable, you'll just need to have the media and a license of course. In any case, I ran this on one laptop that I suspected would have major issues, only to find out that so far it's only minor. (Needs audio driver updates, hopefully I'll be able to get them.)So my question would be is testing the laptop from a virtual machine a viable source of information for what I will get if I step into loading Windows 7 as the OS for the laptops?

Answer:Testing Win7 on a Virtual Machine

Simple answer -

in my opinion, "No".

The "virtual" environment is somewhat isolating the Win 7 OS from the actual hardware environment of the laptop.
You should still run the Win 7 upgrade advisor, and even if you don't trust it, it will give you something to build on.

If you can, and these laptops are identical, you could partiton one of the HDs and install Win 7 in the new partition, thereby preserving the original OS while testing Win 7. This would give you the information you need on whether Win 7 will work on them.

If each laptop is different, you'll need to consider each one separately while running the Upgrade Advisor or installing the OS in a test partition.

specs:

I need to know whether I can run win8 as virtual machine....??
thanks in advance
 

Answer:Running windows 8 as virtual machine in win7

You cannot run a virtual machine with only 3GB of RAM. Windows 7 needs 2GB to run. You will then only have 1GB for running Windows 8, which is not enough. You should have at least 8GB of RAM and a quad core CPU to run virtual machines. Also, since you have only a dual core CPU, 1 core will be needed for Win8, and another for Win7. this will make both OS's run very slow.

Java Virtual Machine is somehow suddenly missing on my windows 2000 SP2 system. When I get to a web site that needs to use java, I am prompted to download the java virtual machine. I d/l it and it attempts to install - I then get an error message stating that 'the virtual machine cannot be installed because it is a protected system component. This can only be installed through a hotfix or operating system service pack upgrade.' I have looked all over microsoft's site (especially the java download site) to view the most recent builds of the machine and find that I need to go to the most recent service pack. I download the entire serive pack 2 (110 megs), reinstall, and still nothing is fixed. I also d/l the java hotfix, attempt to install, and receive a message stating that the operating system level is newer than this hotfix and can only be installed with service pack 1.

I have a hard time believing that there is no way to put the java virtual machine back on my system until (if ever) service pack #3 comes out (this is supposed to be a security enhancement?) . I desperately need this back on my machine, does anyone have any suggestions?

I've had some drama with a corrupted BOOT drive. To cut the story short I need to do a clean install on a brand new HD. I have created a Windows Easy Transfer file on an external drive.

I'm about to format the C: drive and do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit version. All my applications are still installed on two other drives in the same machine. I had nothing installed on the C: drive. When I transfer my settings back to my C: drive from the MIG file will I still need to re-install all my apps or will it pick them in situ, as I haven't modified any of the other drives?

Answer:Transfer to same machine (Win7 64bit ultimate)

You must reinstall all programs to a newly installed OS because they write registry keys which integrate themselves into the OS until uninstalled, which is also why they should be installed on the same partition with the OS.

You can separate your data out to another partition so if you must reimage Win7 on C because it becomes irreparable, your data is intact, current and waiting on the other partitiion.

I do not recommend Easy Transfer because it can fail and you must try to pry your data out of it. Easier to just drag your User folders to external.

I am trying to to a repair installation on my Win7(64) Pro system: the one called "Upgrade" which does not delete user files, settings or programs. Every time I try to run the setup program from the DVD I burned from the Digital Rivers ISO I downloaded, the installation stops and I get the following Compatibility Report: "The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading...Setup was unable to determine whether there is any virtual machine installed."

I've no idea what this means but want to fix the problem so I can run the repair installation setup. Any ideas?

Answer:Repair installation: error message about virtual machine

Wild guess: Do you have XP Mode installed? If so, try uninstalling it, see if that helps.

Have you tried disabling your anti-virus, shutting down everything you can then try the Repair? You could even try How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

If nothing else works, backup your data and Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

It wipes everything so you definitely need to backup first. I know this is not what you want to do but it may be the best way to fix the problem ad Google had nothing to offer for this problem.

Hello all, I'm new here. Found this forum via google, of all places ;)

I'm having a serious problem. I'll start with the specs first, and then get to the problem though.

System:
Seagate 500GB HDD
Gigabyte M68MT-S2P mobo w/ BIOS Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
USB installation of Windows 7 Ultimate x64

And now, the problem... the installation starts, and I get to the "Where do you want to install Windows?" screen, I choose my drive, which is "Disk 0 Partition 1", which displays Total Size 465.8 Free Space 465.8 Type Primary, but Windows 7 installer says: "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the Setup log files for more information."

Now, as you can see from what I said the issue it, it loads into the installation just fine. I've used a 32bit version of this and installed Win7 on several netbooks with the same issue, and in all cases, removing the USB at this point and re-inserting it was what fixed it.

The things that I have tried already are:
1. Removing the USB so that the only drive in is the HDD, but then I get the "Windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001.
