Code purple in windows 7


This is a trap door setup by HP to ensure you only use their hardware (i.e. motherboard) with their software. Here's what to do: after the system recovery is done, boot up a stand-alone CD (e.g. BART, UBCD4Win) that allows you to edit a file. Ensure you can see hidden files and go into

C:\hp\bin\ConfigCheck\cfgchk.bat

Either delete or remark-out the line that calls the run.py script.

Save the updated .bat file and reboot. You should now be able to continue the XP setup.

How to fix code purple error


for windows XP:
- Get into C:\hp\bin\CheckConfig\cfgchk.bat
- Rename the file "run.py" to "run.p_" or just delete it. (That's the file that verify the hardware configuration for the OEM version)
- Then reboot!
for vista:
- Get into C:\hp\bin\CheckDMI folder
- Rename the file "CheckDMI.cmd" to "CheckDMI"
or
- Edit the file and change the "0" (zero) value (there is only one in the whole file) for "1" value...which means that the hardware configuration respect the terms of the OEM contract.
- Then reboot!

I need to purchase an internal power unit for my Philips LS1400 - how can I find out the technical specifications for the unit?


1. Load the first system recovery disk into the CD-ROM drive
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q
8. Press Q to quit the Recovery Window (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

*I have found that there is no need to Select "Advanced Options" prior to pressing Alt + D.


Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITHOUT a Recovery Disk Set:

If the Recovery Partition on your hard drive is intact, this should work:

1. Turn on PC and repeatedly press F10 (pause for a second between key presses) until the Recovery Screen comes up
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter

I have a code puple on my HP PC a350n..HP says they won't fix it. I thought there was a law suit about this and they Have to fix it. But, I just want to know if ANYONE can.


Code Purple is about the weirdest error you will see reinstalling XP, and it is almost exclusively an HP/Compaq problem.

These companies placed a special system identifier on the motherboard by a process called 'tattooing', and the system recovery routines look for this signature before allowing the install.

It is actually quite easy to bypass this signature check. Here are two entries from an online thread expaining how:

--------

Code Purple can be bypassed by accessing and renaming the file run.py to run.p_. The file is found at c:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"

--------

To access the "C:" drive to rename the file:
1. Boot the system with a Win Xp Original Disk.
2. When you have to select "Enter" to reload or "R" for Recovery Console select "R".
3. Select the "H:\minint" Drive to bring up the System
4. At the "H:\minint" prompt, change to the "C:" prompt
5. Change directory to the "C:\hp\bin\configcheck"
6. Rename the file with the command "ren run.py run.p_"
7. Reboot the machine and there should be no "Code Purple" error.
--------

The full thread can be read here:) Note how far it goes back!

Configuration error code purple


1. Load the system recovery disk into CD-ROM
2. Press F10 repeatedly at boot screen to load the Recovery Menu
3. Press R for the recover console
4. Select "Advanced Options"
5. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt
6. type "cd h:\" to enter the root directory
7. type "dir /w" to view the directory in wide view
8. open the master.log file (or something along those lines), this should bring up a prompt asking you what program to open it with, you should only be able to select notepad.
9. open the file with notepad and when it appears select the File>Open
10. in the file name box type in "C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
11. once the file opens clear the contents and select save as then save the file as run.p_
12. close the notepad program
13. delete the original file by typing "del C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
14. reboot system

After a reboot the windows screen might flash a few times and take a little longer to load, be patient and you should be able to continue with the windows set-up without that damned code purple error message.

Code purple error on hp 1410n


"Code Purple" on an Windows XP system: This Worked for me!:

Okay, I have read and read and read, on this site, and on others, trying to fix the "Code Purple" problem. Many of the answers ALMOST worked for me; but I, like many others, couldn't get to the H: drive to del the key file. At the C:\ prompt, I couldn't CD to H:\. So what I did was to give the DEL command from the C:\ prompt. See below for the 2 detailed procedures. The first is for those who have the Recovery Disk Set, the other is for those without the set. Good Luck!

Procedures for recovery from "Code Purple" on a Windows XP system:

Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITH a Recovery Disk Set:
