    The technical informaition says: *** STOP:0x0000009F (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA80047B1050, OxFFFFF8000BED15A8, 0xFFFFFA8006FF0750)

Install Windows 7 or Windows Vista on a Pc Without DVD Media


For user who doesn’t want to waste a DVD disc to burn the ISO to physical media, and does not have WinPE (Windows PE) startup disc, here’s a workaround method to install Windows Vista and Windows 7 into physical computer’s hard disk drive or partition (volume) directly with ISO without writing or burning to disc. The without-disc installation method is useful especially during beta and RC period of new operating system in the making, where the new build and new versionis launching and publishing every now and then. This tutorial guide assumes that the new Windows 7 or Windows Vista will be installed and replaced the original existing operating system currently installed. The instructions can be modified slightly (mainly on hard disk partition used) to fit into need of readers who want to have a dual-boot, multi-boot, or simply just to upgrade install to new OS.

1. Install a virtual CD/DVD drive on existing Windows operating system.
2. Mount the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD ISO image using the virtual drive.
3. Copy all files inside the virtual CD/DVD drive mounted with the ISO into any folder on any partition or hard disk drive not going to be used to install the Windows OS. For example, copy into E:\Windows7.
4. Copy the bootmgr and boot folders nested inside the copied folder (i.e. \Windows7) to root directory of system boot drive, typically C:\.

Note: For Windows Vista, users may need to use this step: Copy the bootmgr folder from E:\Windows7 to C:\ root directory, copy E:\Windows7\boot\boot.sdi file to same folder in C:\boot folder, and then copy bootsect.exe from the E:\Windows7\boot\ folder to C:\ drive.

Note: boot folder in system boot drive is hidden system folder.
5. Create a new folder named sources under the C:\ root folder.
6. Copy the boot.win file inside \Windows7\sources folder to the source folder created in the system boot drive, normally C:\.
7. Open a command prompt as administrator.
8. Run the following command (change the C to your drive path letter if applicable):

C:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

For Windows Vista users who copied bootsect.exe to C:\ root folder, use the following command instead:

C:\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

A successful message is the command completes successfully.
9. Change the name or label of the boot system partition local disk to BDCP or any name you prefer that easier to remember and type (in DOS command promot, use label command).
10. Restart the computer.
11. After booting up, the system will start the corresponding Windows installation process. Select the applicable language to install, time and currency format (regional settings locale) and keyboard or input method in the installation wizard dialog.
12. On the next screen, user will be presented with option to Install Windows. DO NOT press on Install Windows button, instead, click on Repair My Computer link on the bottom left corner.
13. In the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) System Recovery Options dialog window, click on Command Prompt to open a DOS Prompt window.
14. Run the format command to format the primary hard disk or partition to clean state:

format c: /q

Note: /q switch, which perform quick format can be omitted to full format. And if existing hard disk partition is of FAT32 filesystem format, use format c: /q /fs:ntfs to convert the file system to NTFS while formatting. Before formatting begins, the command may prompt for hard disk drive or partition label name, if so, enter accordingly (i.e. BDCP).
15. After format completed, start the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation process again by manually running the setup.exe located in the copied. Note that the setup.exe is not the one located on boot system drive which copied at later step, as the boot drive has been formatted. For example:

E:\Windows7\sources\setup.exe
16. Continue with installation procedures by following on-screen instructions as per normal practice.

At times it will tell me my files are missing or it will not let me do an install ?


the fact that it tells you the files are missing when you are trying to do an installing from the disk it means the disk you are using is either corrupted or has parts that can not be read..The thing to do is try to do an installation from the windows ..and this way you will succeed (and avoid the possibility if the disk player is the one making problems )
another thing is to try and burn the windows disk again ..Download a image ..and after that use Nero or another tool to burn a boot-able disk ..and use it to install ..
now ..depending on your computer configuration ..you can choose what to install ..but if you want you can even install windows 7 if it supports it ..for that you need more than 1G cpu and 1g of ram on your computer and at least 20 G free in C drive .(remember this drive need to be formatted so all files will need to be moved if you want to keep something )
here are some images I used with success ..
http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6887809/Microsoft.Windows.XP.Professional.DECEMBER.2011
or windows 7
http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6839618/windows_7
for this you will need the loader if it is not in the folder ..(search on same site )
for to be able to download these images..you need a torrent client program ..and I would go for this one ..
http://www.utorrent.com/
to download..just install u torrent ..and after that go to the page ..and click download this torrent (ignore the big download button case it is a spam )
it will start in utorrent my default ..and when it is all downloaded..you can use Nero and burn the image to the disk ..to do that ..just install Nero ..and double click on the image ..and will open Nero automatically ..
for windows 7 ..you can even try a tool to load it on a memory stick and install it from there by pressing the key for boot menu on start ..and after that choose to boot from the usb ..(or if the boot do not work ..just start the installing from the usb flash directly in windows.
here is the tool I mentioned..
http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool/3000-18513_4-10972600.html
if you try to use this tool in windows xp ..you will need to install a couple of fixes ..cause it is made for windows 7 ..but they are available on teh net and the program leads you to them automatically ..
and the tool works cause I use it like this all the time ..and it can also make a boot-able disk or a boot-able usb ..your choice ..
let me know if you have additional problems and please rate my answer..to help my activity here ..

Hello.

Just some thoughts:

1. Your Windows XP install (image ?) may be corrupt. Reinstall or capture another image.
2. Try installing Windows XP on C: and Windows 7 on D: That way the boot files are left for the older version.

Hope this helps.

Press "F8" before Windows boot and you'll be presented with Advanced Boot Option. Select Safe Mode and hope it can booted successfully into this mode. Uninstall the related driver and reboot the system to normal mode.

Once it is booted, install the driver obtained from NVIDIA which is WHQL certified for Windows 7. Once installed, reboot your system and hope it works now.

Have you tried booting from the original system CD? Another option would be to download and burn an ISO image of Linux Ubuntu Workstation 9.10 Live CD. Try to Boot from this CD. If it boots successfully, it should give you the ability to access your hard drive to retrieve your data. It might also indicate if your system is having a hardware issue. We have installed and run Ubuntu Linux and plenty of these machines with good success... great way to troubleshoot hardware functionality and allow access to data without loosing it.

Windows 7 beta incompatible??


I have used acronis and win 7 with no issue.

Be aware though that win7 beta has a lot of versions so one may work fine and another maybe not.

As a Technet member I have the latest version and proper key etc.

Pirate versions may be subject to virus and other unwanted side effects.

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.
