Question about Samsung HM060HI Hard Drive

1 Answer

Hard drive will not completely finish installing Vista Sp1.

I downloaded Vista Sp1. After computer does automatic reboot it continues to cycle through the process of stating different percentages of installing Vista SP1.

This will continue to cycle over and over again never completing and never reaching the Welcome screen.

Try booting in Safe Mode (press F8 during startup). Once in safe mode, see if you can see the update in the Add/Remove programs from the Control Panel. Make sure the select the "View updates" checkbox.
If it is there, try uninstalling it before you boot in regular mode again.

While in Safe Mode, also disable the automatic Windows update. You can then try to install it manually from the Microsoft site instead.

Microsoft has some more ideas on how to fix SP installation.

I have windows 8 installed right now but my computer came with vista how can Igo back to vista with no vista disk but I have the vista registration code on the computer


If you did not make the system disks when you first got the computer then you will need to find the disk somewhere else (unfortunately my disks wouldn't read properly). I just fixed my old vista laptop hard drive crashed. I found the same version of Vista Home Premium in a torrent file on the internet - burnt the disk and installed on a brand new HDD I bought on ebay - used my Vista registration code - might get slammed here but I as I used my original registration code then I can't see how it is pirating.....

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.

I cannot get into my files


Hi,

Check in event viewer to see if chkdsk ran. Normally when chkdsk runs, it throws an event into the event log.
It should be in the Application event log. Lets verify that it did run.

To fix any corrupt system files, lets try System File checker.
Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories and right click on the Command Prompt.
Select the Security Tab and choose "Run as Administrator"
Click on Command Prompt
Type SFC /Scannow.
This will scan and fix any corrupted operating system files.


If you are still having problems after a SFC scan, then we can try a In-Place Upgrade which will do a repair of the operating system. You will need to have the DVD installation disk. An OEM recovery disk will not suffice.

Note: After performing In-Place Upgrade, your personal data and installed programs will not be removed but we may need to run Windows Update to install all the available updates for your system to update these system files to the current version. This troubleshooting process is time consuming and may take several hours to complete.

If your DVD installation disk is prior to Sp1, and you have SP1 installed on your computer, you will need to uninstall SP1 to complete the in-place upgrade and then reinstall the necessary windows updates .


If you would like to perform the In-place Upgrade, let's refer to the following steps.

1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.

2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.

3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:


• If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen appears. Click Install now.

• If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:


a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.

Note Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.


b. Click Install now.


4. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want?" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the current operating system to Windows Vista.


Please run Windows Update again as you will need to download and install the most current updates.


If you do not have the Windows Vista Installation DVD, I suggest contacting your PC manufacturer to order a backup disk.



Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen


This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.

Hallow Dear,

First I would like to advice you to remove the webcam driver & application completely from add/removes program in control panel. And make sure after you reboot our PC let the webcam detected by windows as unknown device.

Use link below & Select the EXACT WEBCAM DRIVER THAT YOU HAVE; under Driver & Utilities, according to your OS. Then you will get connect to download automatically.

Install properly & reboot once.

*** If you are using VISTA***
Please ensure that VISTA SP1 is installed on your system prior to installing these drivers! Driver incompatibilities on a system without VISTA SP1 might affect usability.
