Question about Samsung 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 32MB HD103UJ 334 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

Where can I find directions for removing 2 Windows 7 installations. This is because the installation did not go well, and in each attempt, Windows tried to install. I now have 2 working and a partial installation. Since one of them is working very well (other than for lack of space) I would like to delete at least one (get rid of the unintended extra partitions)

Did you install to a separate "partition" of the disk-space, or just to a different "folder" on the 'C:' drive. For comparison, Windows NT installed to the 'C:\WINNT' folder, and, by default, Windows XP/Vista/7 install to the 'C:\WINDOWS' folder.

If you installed to a different folder, open My Computer.
Open the 'C:' drive.
Click on that folder-name.
Hold down the SHIFT key and press the DELETE key.
Say 'yes' to confirm that you want to delete the folder, thereby_bypassing_ moving the folder into your 'Recycle Bin'.

If you installed to a different partition, open "Disk Management (local)",
select the partition, and either DELETE or FORMAT the partition.

Ya if i only could reload win7 and yes u will lose all info on hdd even the dummy password he put on to lock hdd amazing only thing it wont reload windows


Step 1:
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

Note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

Step 2:
For Windows users who switch and upgrade from Windows Vista, one difference will be immediately noticeable when installing or upgrading to Windows 7, i.e. Install Windows 7 setup wizard no longer prompts or asks for user selection of which edition of the operating system to install. Instead, each Windows 7 DVD disc or Windows 7 ISO image will automatically install the preset specific edition which it's confined to.

Although Microsoft does not provide an universal "one disc rules them all" Windows 7 installation media, however the function is indeed supported. User just need to delete and remove the ei.cfg from any Windows 7 ISO disc image to convert the image into universal disc of any edition Windows 7 installer. For user who has the ISO image of Windows 7, and wish to make it an universal installer for any and all supported editions of Windows 7, as shown in illustration below, now has an easier way to modify the ISO. Instead of manually unpacking and extracting the content of ISO image (or copying files from DVD) to HDD, deleting the ei.cfg and then repacking or rebuilding installation files back into ISO to burn, user can now eliminate troublesome procedures by making use of "ei.cfg Removal Utility". clip_image001.jpg The ei.cfg Removal Utility is a simple tool that will disable the ei.cfg from any Windows 7 ISO disc image, thereby converting the image into a "universal disc" that will prompt the user to select a preferred edition during setup. ei.cfg Removal Utility works directly to patch the ISO image, by toggling the deletion bit in the UDF file table to instruct the operating system to ignore and remove ei.cfg, or treat it as if it does not exist. Best of all, ei.cfg Removal Utility can reverse the patching to restore the ISO disc image to its original state when the tool is been used to apply on a disc image that previously been patched by the utility. ei.cfg Removal Utility is a standalone portable app, and thus no installation required. In fact, the program does not have much user interface. After selecting the target Windows 7 ISO, the disc image will be patched right away. So make sure a copy of ISO backup is done.

Is there a way to get the old game Enemy Nations to run on 64 bit windows 7


Hello there,
From my searching it doesnt look like you can play the game directly in Windows 7. You can, however, run a virtual box of windows XP and attempt to run the game in the virtual environment. That would take a fair amount of work though and requires a certain level of windows 7 and a compatible CPU. Here is some information on it.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx
I hope that helps! Thumbs up are always appreciated.

I need drivers for cannon printer BJC 85 to run on windows 7


There are no officially supported Windows 7 or Windows Vista drivers for the Canon BJC-85 printer. If you have the 64 bit version of Windows 7, then you have no choice other than to buy a new printer or use this printer in Windows XP Mode. If you have Windows 7 64 bit then please post back here with that information or create a new FixYa problem, and I will help you set up XP Mode so that you can use your printer.

If you don't know whether you have 64 bit or 32 bit Windows 7, then please follow these steps.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "MSINFO32" into the dialog box and press enter.
3. Look for item "System Type" and note whether the value is x64 or x86. (x86 means you have a 32 bit OS)

Assuming you have the 32 bit version of Windows 7:
1. Go ahead and download and install the XP drivers by following the link and clicking on "I Agree - Begin Download". Here are the drivers for Windows XP: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/bjc_series/bjc_85#DriversAndSoftware

2. Save file to the Desktop for easy access.

3. Right click on the downloaded file and select "Properties".
4. Select the Compatibility tab and check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".

5. If the installer completes, then restart the computer and attempt to print from the Canon.

If the installer fails follow the next set of directions:
1. Make sure the printer is plugged in, turned on, and connected to the computer via USB.

2. Press Win+R to open Run command.
3. Type "DEVMGMT.MSC" and press enter.

4. Look for a device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it. If you have more than one, look for a device that says "USB Input Device" or "Unknown USB Input Device".

5. Right click on the device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it and select Properties.
6. Click the Driver tab and select Update Driver.
7. Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
8. Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
9. Scroll down to "Printers" and select Next.
10. Click "Have Disk" and select "Browse"
11. Browse to "C:\Temp\bjc85Win2kXPv150" and select "bjc85.inf" and then click Open and then OK.

12. Ignore all errors that Windows gives you and install the driver, restart the computer, and attempt to print.


Good luck, post back if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa,

I have a microsoft windows 7 ultimateCD.I 'am unable to install due to the absence of autorun.dll.how can i install windows now?


It sounds like you are attempting to upgrade to windows 7 within an earlier version of Windows, and are having an issue with the earlier version missing files. The Autorun.dll file belongs to a component within windows responsible for automatically launching a program from a CD, once the disc is inserted.
My suggestion would be to back up all your files to a disk, boot with the Windows 7 CD, and perform a clean re-install (completely removing the previous version). You may be required to provide the CD product key belonging to the older version of windows you have, as well as the key for the Windows 7 disk. Or you could attempt to locate the disk you used for installing the previous version of windows you possess, and using the "repair" option. in both cases though, make sure you back up your files!
