Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Attempted to upgrade Vista to SP1 on an E-machine, during install, Norton reinstalled, upon rebooting - BSOD so I don't know if SP1 issue or Norton, or both. Using VISTA disk, the bar progresses and then leaves at BSOD. Tried F8 - all options explored with no progress. Only message at any time is the "bootmgr missing" message. Any way to boot to recovery partition? Tired of Black screen

    Can you send the defective disk to Microsoft and get a replacement one? Call them and see.

Try booting into safe mode.
If you can, I suggest getting rid of Norton. The drivers are not compatable with vista.
Vista has a ton of issues and many types of softwhere will not run or work.
If you want a good virus software, use the new software from Microsoft.

Problem installing Vista SP1 on Asus G2s


If you tried to install Vista on the Primary drive and formatted the primary HDD your Factory Recovery Partition , most likely has been written over, it's gone. Choose one or the other , Vista or Win 7, start from the beginning, install a clean Vista load, formatting in the installation procedure, form a Vista Installation DVD, follow instructions, boot up, do ALL the Vista Updates, it will take hours of updates, rebooting, updates, rebooting. You will get to the Service Pack's 1 and 2, in 24 hours or so. Put on a pot of coffee and be patience. If you prefer Windows 7 use the same procedure.

Did you do ALL your windows update before the Service Pack? That SP has been out for years? Doesn't your laptop have Windows Updates set to Auto? Choose one or the other, Vista or Win 7 and do a Full Install.

I deleted my norton 360 by accident i want to reinstall


Before you could reinstall the product, you need to ensure that the last instance of the product has been removed completely else it may create issues with the new installation. To do this, follow the steps below:
  1. Click Here to download the Norton Removal Tool. Download the file from the website and save it on your desktop. Now run the file (Right-click and Run as Administrator for Vista and Win7 users). After cleanup, the tool would ask you to reboot your machine. This removes the Norton product completely from your computer.
  2. Now goto http://www.symantec.com/norton/index.jsp and download the trial version of your product and install it on the computer. You can also use the disk for installation, if you have one.
  3. On installation, the product would give you the activation screen to register the product. Fill in your activation details appropriately to activate the license.

Done!
Good Luck -Abhishek

Read this tutorial on JSKYS site.

Follow each step carefully. If you can't make the repair

with these steps...download the 64-bit version of

Windows 7 Beta at this link. If you lack the capability

to burn an ISO image to a DVD then skip this step.

We recently installed 7 onto a Vista loaded laptop

with a damaged boot sector. Your files will be saved to

a folder during installation. Once you complete the installation

of 7 you can reinstall Vista on the original partition.

This type of troubeshooting takes a bit of experience and a

load of patience.


I hope this will help you get your teeth into it.

You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.
