Cannot install the drivers on windows 7 computer. for my Swann adw 300


hi,
Check the operating system you are using is it 32bit or 64 bit. If you are using windows 7 with 64 bit, then your operating system will accept only external devices that support 64bit. Also check the security system has the capability for working with windows 7 64 bit operating system.

It will be better if you print these instructions since you will need to type many commands later. I'm typing a detailed procedure to recover your windows.


It's possible that somehow your Windows registry is corrupted. But there is a backup. Only thing is you need to manually restore it.

Boot using your Windows XP cd in the drive and press enter when it asks to boot from CD (if it does not ask, then you will need to go to the CMOS setup by pressing DEL or F2 key and change the boot sequence)

Now, when booting from XP CD, it asks if you want to do a recovery, press R and you will get this screen:


Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console 

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality. 
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer. 

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log onto 
(To cancel, press ENTER)? 



Type 1 and press enter.

Now type the commands I am putting below, one by one per line and press enter after every line.

md c:\tmp

cd system32\config

copy system c:\tmp\system.bak 

copy software c:\tmp\software.bak

copy sam c:\tmp\sam.bak

copy security c:\tmp\security.bak

copy default c:\tmp\default.bak

del system software sam security default

Now, type these commands: (Take care to type the dot as it is)

copy c:\windows\repair\system .

copy c:\windows\repair\software .

copy c:\windows\repair\sam .

copy c:\windows\repair\security .

copy c:\windows\repair\default .


Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows (even if you get the grub menu)

If it boots in to windows, then do the following:


Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box. 

Click Yes when the dialog box is displayed that confirms that you want to display these files. 

Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to get a list of the folders. It's important to click the correct drive. 

Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder. 

This folder contains one or more _restore {GUID} folders such as "_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".

Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RP x under this folder. These are restore points. 

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: 

C:System Volume Information_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1Snapshot 

From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 
_registry_user_.default
_registry_machine_security 
_registry_machine_software 
_registry_machine_system 
_registry_machine_sam


Now, once again put your XP CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 


Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

How to recover the windows server2003 (missing file c:\ windows\system32\config\system


Two options:

Either reinstall Windows

OR

Follow the procedure below

It will be better if you print these instructions since you will need to type many commands later. I'm typing a detailed procedure to recover your windows.


It's possible that somehow your Windows registry is corrupted. But there is a backup. Only thing is you need to manually restore it.

Boot using your Windows XP cd in the drive and press enter when it asks to boot from CD (if it does not ask, then you will need to go to the CMOS setup by pressing DEL or F2 key and change the boot sequence)

Now, when booting from 2003 CD, it asks if you want to do a recovery, press R and you will get this screen:


Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console 

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality. 
Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

copy security c:\tmp\security.bak

del system software sam security default



Now, type these commands: (Take care to type the dot as it is)

copy c:\windows\repair\system .

copy c:\windows\repair\software .

copy c:\windows\repair\sam .

copy c:\windows\repair\security .

copy c:\windows\repair\default .


Now type exit and press enter and the system will reboot.

Remove the CD and boot normally in Windows .

If the PC boots in to windows, then do the following:

Start Windows Explorer. 

On the Tools menu, click Folder options. 

Click the View tab. 

Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" check box.

Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder; the following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: 

C:System Volume Information_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}RP1Snapshot 


From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\tmp folder with the mouse: 
_registry_user_.default
_registry_machine_security 
_registry_machine_software 
_registry_machine_system 
_registry_machine_sam


Now, once again put your Windows 2003 CD in to your CD Drive and reboot using the CD. Again press R for the recovery console.

At the console, type these commands one by one per line and press enter after every command:

cd system32\config

del sam security software default system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_software system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_system system

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_sam sam

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_machine_security security 

copy c:\windows\tmp\_registry_user_.default default 


Now type exit and remove the CD. Boot normally in Windows and you must be back to normal.

If in case, Windows doesn't boot even following this procedure, then you need to reinstall windows. BUT you can still try a repair install instead of a normal install since that will let your programs and settings remain as they are, intact.

Post back and I will reply with that procedure.
