Cannot Create A System Repair Disc


We have had this problem since first boot.

After
Start->maintenance->backup and restore->create a system repair disc , a grayed out dialog window comes up with "create a system repair disc" as title, but is immediately covered by another dialog window that says: microsoft windows repair disc has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

There is a choice of "debug" or "close window". Debug leads to the same dialog window without the choice of "debug" and "close. " Closes both dialog windows.

This activity will create errors in the event viewer but there is no information. The event id, source, and log fields are "-". Using recdisc.exe produces the same result. It does not matter if there is media in the drive or not. Re-booting does not help. Device manager says the matshita dvd-ram uj892as dvd drive is ok. The drive plays music and movies fine. Any clues?

How To Create Bootable System Repair Disk On Usb ?

How can i create a bootable version of a "system repair disk" on my hard disk drives or on a usb stick?
 
Explanations/why i ask the question: i have ordered a pc that will come with the 64 bit version of windows 7 ultimate and with 3 hard disks. My pc manufacturer/assembler told me, that they do not install bootable recovery partitions on the hard disk drives of their pcs.

Therefore, when i will eventually need to restore my system with the windows 7 "system image recovery" tool to the state of a previously created system image, i will need to use a system repair disc (that i have previously created on a dvd) to boot the "system image recovery" tool.

In principle, this seems to be sufficient, because it is hopefully relatively seldom that i will need to restore my c partition to a previous state (in the past, i did this mainly when participating in a software beta programs in order to restore my pc to the "clean and reliable" state prior to the installation of the unreliable beta-software).
 
I am however concerned about becoming dependent for the restore of a system image on a properly functioning dvd drive (they seem to be less reliable than, for example, hard disk drives). It would be a severe problem for me, to detect at the time of an attempted system restore, that my dvd drive is not functioning anymore.
 
Therefore, i would like to know if and how, i could reliably create for windows 7 ultimate (64 bit) a bootable version of a "system repair disk" on one of my internal hard disks or on an externally attached  usb disk or usb stick. I will appreciate to get a description (or to be pointed to a description) that a regular windows user can understand (i am not a pc system programmer and i am not familiar at all with things like the registry or sdks)

Creating Recovery Discs (not Repair Disc)

We purchased and installed windows 7 - 64 bit in two computers. Neither installation gave us notification to make recovery disks or the repair disc. We found the place to make the repair disc, but cannot locate where to tell the program to make the regular recovery discs. Can anyone tell me if we need to do this? Our daughter purchased a new computer with windows 7 already installed and it gave the option to create all of these discs.

System Repair

I was trying to repair my other computer becuase of a crash. I am using windows 7 professional. The repair console does not automatically find my operating system, and it allows me to browse for the file, but i only know i am looking for a setup file type, not what file i am looking for or where the file would be located. I really think that may be some nice information to have on your support page. It tells you to select the operating system in the steps, but nothing about what to do if the operating system is not automatically found. Can you help?

System Repair Does Not Start

I'm having issues with my pc. It has 64 bit windows 7 and it sometimes does not start and when it does some programs are not responsive. Also, my system security is disabled. I can start it, but it really doesn't do anything and when i restart it goes right back to disabled. Btw, i have mcafee plus as my av. I've ran stinger, ad-adware and other programs and cannot detect any viruses or trojans. I've also noticed my clock is wrong by a day. I don't see anything funny running in the background but i know something is wrong. I tried to do a windows repair but when i select that option it just goes to a black screen and does nothing. Also, sometimes when i try to boot in safe mode it hangs on classpnp.sys.

It is hit or miss if windows will load. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. I've put my windows 7 cd in and it doesnt, i've put a windows 7 repair disk and it sometimes will but it takes forever. I've even put an office 2007 and it does nothing. I've done memory test, and scan disk have not found any errors. When it does boot the interet works okay sometimes. Just like normal. Then it becomes very slow. One thing that never works is my outlook. It always
Loads then changes to "not responding" any ideas? I can't believe i can't figure this one out. I've always at a minimum was able to reload windows.

Win 7 Creates System Repair Disk Without Including The 3rd Party

Windows 7 creates "system repair disk" without including the 3rd party pci-sata driver required to see my sata drives. I upgraded a 2002 vintage pc with a siliconimage sil3512 pci sata controller and 2 500g sata drives. It was slightly annoying that out of the box win 7 did not include the drivers (when every recent version of linux i've tried did). I got win 7 installed by loading the driver when asked. I guess win 7 cannot include every legacy driver.

The surprising thing is that when i ask win 7 to create a system repair disk (presumably to repair the system used to create the disk) it leaves out the driver that it should know is required to make repair possible. Seems like sloppy work to me.

Create System Image Failed

Upgraded windows 7 home premium to ultimate using anytime upgrade. Tried to create system image on a second hard drive, and it failed with a message about not having enough disk space on the destination drive. Before starting the backup, i got a message that about 27gb would be needed. There is over 100gb of free space on the second hard drive. Tried again, this time saving to my networked shared drive, also with over 100gb free space. Same failure message. The system c: drive shows 52. 1gb free of 74. 4gb

Unable To Create The System Image

I have two acer slimline towers. One almost one year, the other just two weeks. I thought that finally i shoud create a system image. So far i was lucky and haven't lost anything but after the purchase of the second acer i became a little more concerned.

I purchased iomega 1tb external drive ntfs and tried to create the system image. On the older comp. I receive a message that the harddrive has not enough free space for creating the system image. The 1tb drive is empty. The newer comp. Will not even let me go to the same point. It tells me that "windows 7 backup stopped working". The next message gives me a choice to cancel or debug but nothing happens anyway. From reading several non-microsoft forums i assume that this is a serious problem and my concern is who will give me new windows if i loose the content of one or both of my computers when there is no longer hard copy of windows supplied. One comp is 32bit, the other is 64bit. Both have w& professional upgrade.

If i may add another question, the newer comp, the 64bit doesn't shut off properly. It takes 4 minutes at least. The older one with much more stuff in it shuts off immediately. I tried to stop services and startup programs but it doesn't help.

How To Create More System Restore Points ?

Backup Create System Image On External / Network Drive

I am running windows 7 home premium 64bit and i have 2 internal hdds plus a networked windows home server. When i go to backup and select create system image i am only shown the option of backing up the system drive (c drive) and not the other hdd (d drive). And as destination for the backup of the system drive i am presented with no option other than the d drive. I am not shown the option of an external drive or the whs network drive. Apparently the option of an external or network drive should be available as long as they are ntfs formatted.could it be that these options are not available for the home premium edition?

Disk Boot Failure Insert System Disc

I have recently built a new i7 920 computer with new components such as motherboard (ga ex58 ud3r) and new sata ii hdd. The sata is connected to one of the many sata ports with a sata cable. There are also two gsata ports but not sure whether the hdd is supposed to be connected to it. A dvd drive is connected with a 'ribbon' connector to the motherboard but not sure whether it should be connected with the end connector or the middle connector (the ribbon wire has 3 connectors, one connected to the motherboard and one to the dvd with one spare connector).

I have windows 7 home premium upgrade as i have a key for vista. The bios detects that a hdd and dvd drive are present (hdd as ide master 1 and dvd as ide slave 4). I set the bios to boot from cd-rom, however there is no option for dvd-rom. I insert the windows 7 home premium upgrade dvd and reboot the computer. However, i still get the "disk boot failure, insert system disc" message. Is this because i cant boot from an upgrade dvd or that it is still not booting from the dvd?

Usb Install Error - Setup Was Unable To Create A New System Partition

I'm installing onto an hp mini 1035nr. My usb install key was created using the microsoft provided usb install creation program. When i try to install windows 7 i receive the following error: "setup was unable to create a new system partition". I then exited out of the install application and opened the command prompt in the installer. Using diskpart i can create partitions and format them. Using notepad i can write files. Thus i know the installer can read/write to this disk and create system partitions.

Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically

Yesterday, i went to use my computer and it appeared to be hung up. I rebooted and windows 7 refused to boot. It went to the startup repair screen and gave me a message stating "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. " As well as the following message:

Problem event name: startuprepairoffline
Problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 03: unknown
Problem signature 04: -1
Problem signature 05: autofailover
Problem signature 06: 7
Problem signature 07: corruptvolume
Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1
Locale id: 1033

After reviewing more details it said that the file "fltmgr.sys" was corrupt. I can not boot into safe mode. I logged into my vista partition and extracted the "fltmgr.sys" file from the windows 7 dvd and tried to replace it in the system32drivers folder, but that did not resovle this problem. I also attempted to use system restore from the repair menu, but that won't work either. I have not made any system changes or installed any software recently. This same problem happened about two months ago and i was stuck reinstalling from scratch.

Sfc Cannot Repair A File

My bitdefender antivirus app said it found the trojan. Autoruninf. Gen virus. It said that the autorun. Inf in the "bitlockerdiscoveryvolumecontents" folder and the corresponding winsxs folder was the culprit. I have since used the win7 install dvd to boot to cmd and manually remove those files. My rescan for viruses now comes up clean. The problem is that the sfc /scannow fails. The cbo. Log file shows:

2010-02-23 08:04:46, info csi 000002de [sr] repairing 1 components
2010-02-23 08:04:46, info csi 000002df [sr] beginning verify and repair

[Ml:520{260}, l:94{47}]"?C:windowsbitlockerdiscoveryvolumecontents"[l:22{11}]"autorun. Inf"; source file in store is also corrupted

This leads to 2 questions:

1. Is there or is there not supposed to be an autorun. Inf file in said locations above and if so, how do i get it back?

2. If the virus was valid then is there a way to "reset" (so to speak) the sfc store (cache, catalog) so that it doesn't think it should fix that file?

Post Virus Repair

After a day and a half of cleaning i was finally able to remove the infections on my computer. There were a few keyloggers, couple of trojans and some adware. Now everything seems to work okay. However the viruses made some changes and i can't undo them. I am unable to download anything from the internet. Ie8 simply states that my security settings do not allow downloads and ff does download but deletes files immediately after. I have no idea how to fix that or where to even start looking.system restore was affected as well so i can't use that. Can someone help me figure out how to restore my settings without having to reinstall windows yet again?

Issue With Startup And Repair

So i have windows 7 on an alienware. It's been running great, but i recently started up my system and it was stuck at the screen that has the windows logo and says "starting". I turned off my system and ran the repair program. It eventually fixed the issue and started up, but now the system loads up about 5 times as long as before. It use to take under a minute easily and now about 5 but it does start up. I've run my anti-virus and no virus detected, i cleaned up the disk, and i turn off my system properly. Is there anyway to fix my start up situation?

Startup Repair Tool

Im using dell inspiron 1524 and windows 7 home premium. I use hibernation more often. I connect my projector on this laptop and whenever i start my computer resuming windows, i get message, windows failed to start and start-up repair tool gets started, but waiting several minutes i get a message start up repair tool cannot fix this problem, and it asks to send a report to microsoft. Then i have to restart my computer and again same repeats again. I tried memory diagnosis, chkdsk c: /f from command prompt but it does not report any bad sectors. But, when i used chkdsk c:/r computer takes a lot of time to complete the test. It goes up to stage 4 and takes long time. I tried to start in safe mode, but after loading 3-4 files start up again fails. What should i do now?

Startup Repair Boot Loop

Windows 7 pro 32 on a laptop (could be home premium, can't remember what was installed on this particular laptop). After an update yesterday, the system constantly boots into startup repair. Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically is the message i receive. The details have changed a couple times.

Problem event name: startuprepairoffline

Sig 1: 6. 1. 7600. 16385

Sig 2: same

Sig 3: unknown

Sig 4: 21201082

Sig 5: autofailover

Sig 6: 4

Sig 7: nobootfailure or corruptfile (have gotten both at different times).

Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1

Locale id: 1033

I performed a system restore to before the update was run, back to an automatic system restore point. It didn't actually apply this. When the system rebooted it went back into startup repair and i thought i needed to go further back. It still had all the system restore points available, even the ones after the one i went back to, which i thought could be something new? I restored to a point further back, but when i rebooted it still came up for startup repair. This time, there
Are no restore points created, according to system restore.

I've run sfc with the proper switches to get it to point to the windows directory and i've run chkdsk just to make sure the disk isn't bad. One of the lines in the repair details said "root cause found: boot critical file d:windowssystem32driversatapi.sys is corrupt. Error code 0x490", but replacing it with a good file from a working win7 install didn't fix anything or remove that error from popping back up in a startup repair details. Another set of repair details says "root cause found: boot status indicates that the os booted successfully. "

My next step is to perform an in-place upgrade to the same os (a repair install) but wondered if there was anything that could be done to address this?  I don't know what update was installed. Should have written it down, but i didn't think about it.

Automatic Updates Service Gone, How To Repair ?

A friend of mine recently experienced an infection with a rootkit which was successfully cleaned from the windows 7 pro system. He then noticed a few days later that he could not use windows updates anymore, the function that can be opened from the start menu. A quick check of mine revealed that the service automatic updates was missing from the list of services. My guess is that the rootkit did remove that service or manipulated it somehow so that it is not listed there anymore, probably to prevent microsoft from patching the operating system automatically.

Now how can we get that service back? We do not have a system restore point before the incident. Reinstall might fix the problem but maybe there is a better solution, like registering a dll or something. A search on the internet revealed some tools and commands that either were not compatible with windows xp or that did not have any effect.

Can't Get To Safe Mode - Repair Loop

I have a win 7 64 bit pc that's i'm having an odd issue with. The system will boot and load windows normally, but i can't get to safe mode. When i hit f8, i get the options for safe mode and repair, etc. , But if i try safe mode it loads some stuff, then just stops and a get a black screen with "safe mode" in all 4 corners, a mouse, but nothing else. When i hit "repair" it gets stuck in a repair loop. I've read the tutorial on how to get out of that loop, but was wondering if that's what i should try or if there's some other problem. I'll need to ask a question later about why i need to get to "safe mode" but for now, anyone help on this issue?
