I have just bought a G560. It is shipped with windows 7 installed but without windows 7 installation DVD? I was told the installation exists in a separate partition and that I can burn a DVD from this partition. How do I do that?

You will need to download or purchase a piece of DVD burning software.

An excellent free version is called ImgBurn which you can download here-
http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

you will then need to place a blank DVD into your DVD drive, locate the partition where your Windows installation exists (probably E drive) and then load ImgBurn and follow the on-screen instructions to create a burnable image from the partition and then run the image.

Hi I have A Medianpc the system model is a AWRDACPI X86-Based P.C. Do I have to update my bios to install windows 7.If so please could you advise me.


Hey, no you dont need to update BIOS to install Windows 7 but i would recommend doing it anyway. Its always good practice to have latest version of drivers and firmware as they usually fix bugs in existing in older versions as well improve performance.

As for your CDs i would look at the Optical drive you have and perhaps use another computer to copy the Windows 7 to bootable USB drive and use that to install Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

Tip

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.

Password lockout .i bought it second hand . cannot get refund. can i install windows 7 without password?


Hi Howie,Absolutely you can install Windows 7 without the password. What you're going to need to do is get a copy of the Windows 7 install CD. Put that in your CD/DVD Drive and then restart you're computer. While you're computer is turning on, press F12 to access the boot menu. Select the CD/DVD drive, and then you should see a message saying "press any key continue...". Press any key on the keyboard. You can then follow the on-screen instruction to reinstall Windows from scratch!If you need any more assistance, please feel free to ask.Alex

RES.SIR, PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO ADD(INSTALL) THE MISSING FILES OF OPERATING SYSTEM TO RUN WINDOWS PROPERLY,WITHOUT FORMATTING CONCERN DRIVE.PLS PROVIDE THE PROPER PROCEDER. THANK YOU.


Hi

Use the OPERATING SYSTEM CD/DVD to run the REPAIR MODE.

REPAIRING THE OPERATING SYSTEM just load or install corrupted or missing files from your operating system thus will not delete any of your files from your computer.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

I have successfully installed camera driver in my G560 laptop but i m not able to start the web cam, so how can i start it??


Are you using Windows 7? If you are using windows 7, Follow these steps:
Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver you installed is for other versions of operating system. Before you install any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer then choose "troubleshoot compatiblity". It will allow you to choose what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.

How do i restart my acer aspire 5290 laptop back to factory settings. it has a virus and i want to delete it all back to factory settings


You need to reformat your laptop then reinstall everything. When doing this, you need:

  1. You OS Installer (Windows needs a valid CD-key)
  2. Motherboard Installer (This CD/DVD Installer is usually shipped with your laptop when you bought it. This CD contains all the required drivers to make your laptop works perfectly back to its original state.
  3. If all these installers are ready, insert the Windows CD installer and restart your system.
  4. It will start a setup program on DOS mode. Just follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure that you "Delete" the existing partitions and "recreate" them. It will then format the drive and start the installation.
WARNING: Formatting your drive will delete all your personal files as well. Make sure that you back up all necessary files before doing these steps.

Cann't write in cd/dvd


DVD writing isn't possible in Windows XP without additional software such as Nero.

Do you have another DVD writing program installed in your computer?
