Error message when you try to install Windows Vista on computer that has...

This problem occurs because Windows Vista cannot distinguish between ambiguous hard disks.

In versions of Microsoft Windows Setup that are earlier than Windows Vista Setup, hard disks are marked with distinct values to distinguish them. However, this method of distinguishing hard disks is no longer supported because of the potential for data corruption on hard disks.

Do you have more than one hard drive connected to your computer?

If you have two hard drives, remove the second hard drive and continue with the installation.

If that does not work, try to format the C: drive while installing the Vista operating system.

You need to select the "format" option from "advanced" within Vista installation.

Samsung r530 bad sector hard drive. Did not come with operating software disc.


Remove the HDD and test, replace if necessary. You can contact Samsung, with your laptop Serial Number, and purchase a Factory Recovery DVD. Or, you can buy a Windows Installation DVD and do a Fresh install on the new HDD.

Dark screen on R530, can see image with bight light?


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.

Status: 0xc00000e9. samsung R530 will not start up and recovery 4 wont start up either


Hello, Tracy.

You may have a hardware error - hard disk may be going bad.

Run your computer's diagnostics by pressing continually pressing F12 (it's possible for your system that another function key loads the diagnostics) upon boot and choose diagnostics. Let it run but pay particular attention to the hard drive diagnostic. If you get an error, your hard drive is probably going bad and would need to be replaced.

If not a hardware error, it's possible that there is a system file problem. Boot your system again, but this time press F8 to access System Restore. Choose a date when your system worked OK and follow the process.

Hope this helps.

The hard disk has been corrupted. You will need to completely format it and reinstall Windows using a separate install disk. Either obtain from Samsung a recovery cd or borrow a generic install disk from someone and reinstall using it and the key on the sticker.

My samsung r530 wont read its hard drive. how can i fix this problem?


Unscrew the screws that hold the hard drive, unplug the device, clean the header with some medicinal alcohol. Also clean the motherboard header(where the HDD is connected) in the same manner. Leave it for a couple of minutes to dry, then plug it again.
If it is not working try to test with a different hard drive. If it is working than your hard drive is broken.
If you need further assistance, or have further questions, just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa. Cheers
