No Operating System Found


My win7 upgraded notebook boots to a black screen and i get the following message"no operating system found". I tried to do a system repair wiht my win7 upgrade disk and it states that it could not repair the computer. I tried advance options and at the command prompt i typed bootrex.exe and the response is " 'bootrexe' is not a recognized as an internal or external command, operable batch program or batch file. I then tried "chkdsk/r and i received the message " the type of file system is ntfs.

Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected. The prompt in command screen always displays "x:sources>" i tried changing directories to c:?And it states it can't find the path specified. I am trying to retrieve some files and photos before i do a complete restore. Any advise?

Operating System Not Found

We were running window server 2008, yesterday when we shut down the server everything was working find, the shut down was normal and nothing unusual happened. This morning when we start the server, the screen was black and only "operating system not found" appeared on the screen. When we reboot, entered bios setup, the disk at sata 0 was reset to "none", we tried to select "auto" and the system not able to read the disk info. We tried using system repair (setup disk) to recover but unsuccessful.

There was no way we can access to the system disk? What is happening to the disk? We did not perform anything on the disk and it was working properly yesterday. We have important data inside, hope anybody can help let us know how to resolve the operating system problem or at least recover the data from the disk. We are worried that the hard disk was permanently damaged.

Operating System Can Not Be Found

I have a sony vaio laptop (less than 2 years old) with a windows vista operating system. Every night i put it in sleep mode and leave it for the night. So, i did so last night, and this afternoon, after getting out of school, i pressed the space bar to bring it out of sleep mode. The back-light came on, but the screen stayed dark, and it started making a tapping-like sound for about 10 seconds.

After that, it went into dos mode with the message, "operating system can not be found". So i held down the power button to completely shut it off, left it off for 10 seconds or so then turned it back on. It did the same "tapping thing" then the same message appeared.

I then assumed it had crashed and i'd have to get a new operating system or something equally expensive. But about 20 minutes later, just to see, i turned it off one more time and turned it back on, and incredibly, it gave me the system recovery screen or whatever, with the different options to start it up again, then started up as usual. I have no idea what would cause it to do this and definitely don't want it to happen again. Is there anything i can/should do to prevent this?

Operating System Not Found At Startup

I have a samsung and a dell laptop both with win 7 if i leave the samsung for a length of time sometimes when i come back i get the error above operating system not found and have to reboot. On the dell occasionally if i leave it for sometime it has also crashed but with a completely blank screen. I think when the screen turns off this causes a crash so i have set the screen to never turn off in power settings. Too early to tell if this is the cause but i don't think it's a hardware issue.

Win 7 Will Not Boot - Operating System Not Found

I installed windows 7 on october 27, 2009 (previously had vista) and it was working great. Then about three days after christmas my computer froze and said, "operating system not found. " I then proceeded to take the my computer to where i had initially purchased it, bestbuy. After there geek squad looked at it they informed me that in all likelihood i had a bad motherboard. I purchased a new laptop from them and had them back up my old files onto my portable hdd and was on my way. I then decided that i might as well see if there was anything that i could do to get the old laptop working. I called hp (the manufacturer of my old laptop) and was told that it could possibly be the sata ii connection on my motherboard that was bad.

So, i got an enclosure for the old hdd and plugged it into the usb port on the old laptop. I went into the boot order and set it up to run the usb hard drive first and it would actually get to the windows loading screen! But that was as far as i could get. It would then go to a blue error screen 0x0000007b, telling me to check for viruses and such. I then tried to run system recovery and it was unable to repair it. This is what it told me:

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: 10674684
Problem signature 05: autofailover
Problem signature 06: 1
Problem signature 07: norootcause
Pos version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1
Locale id: 1033

I have tried to run the windows 7 upgrade disc but to no avail either. I would really like to save my old computer if i can but i don't know what else to do. Please help me!

Information On An Operating System

What is windows automotive vs windows ce.

Is windows automotive a development platform built ontop of ce?
Is windows automotive a os all to itself but built on ce?

Pioneer's avic z110bt usb can only read up to 16 gigs of memory, except the ipod which it will read unlimited amounts of data. Is this a hardware issue with the unit? None of their previous units had this problem and this is their brand new flagship model. This system recently switched to the windows automotive 5. 5 os, all other models used windows ce. Is there anything about windows automotive that could explain this?

Operating System Disappear

I installed the windows 7 upgrade from vista on saturday february 20, 2010. First off i backed everything up on to my external hard drive that was working fine until i used windows backup from my vista operating system, now it too is a brick, and i have lost all my pictures of my kids that i have backed up on there for 2. 5 years now. Now, i installed windows 7 trying to get away all the problems with vista, and its telling me after a week that no operating system is found.

I had just put some pictures on the computer from my digital camera, and i'm going to lose those too now. I want to know how to resolve this issue asap. I am not able to afford another $2000 for a new laptop, and i want my operating system that i just paid $120 dollars for to work.

Failed To Load Operating System

Windows 7 wont start, sometimes as if it's not there anymore, my cpu is an intel i7 860 with gpu nvidia gtx275 and 4gb of ram. It's pretty new and not even a year old yet. Overall it's not a bad computer. Anyway, like a week ago it started lagging some, then it got worse after a few days. The hdd light is always showing and i can hear the computer working hard as if i'm running many programs at once. But my from my task manager , i can see that the cpu speed is like lower than 5% and the ram like 30% which is normal. Sometimes the lag is gone and sometimes it's back.

When it happens, even when when i watch videos, the videos lag. Then later, my computer start restarts on its own. On one of the restart, after post , the desktop computer runschkdsk or something like that, that scans the c: drive for errors , i think, and i let it do that. And i can still go into the computer after. But it just goes downhill. The restarts became more often and the 'starting windows ' screen at start became longer and longer. After another restart, there was 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' i cant remember if thats exactly what they are called.

I run system recovery tools and restart after that and i can still come back into the computer. I run myavast! Anti-virus program to check for virus but there isn't any. I have also tried to usesystem restore but there isn't any restore points created, which is unusual because there was always some restore points. After yet another restart later, i couldn't get back into the computer anymore. After post , at the screen of 'loading operating system . ', instead of going to 'starting windows ', it say something like 'failed to load operating system, insert the cd into cd/dvd drive '.

Sorry, i am not very good at recalling stuff. But i do not have the cd, windows 7 was installed in the pc before i bought it. So i reset the computer and it came up with 'windows error recovery ' and i have the 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' like before, but this time after i use the first option, it just stops at a blank screen and nothing else.

I reset the computer again and i chose the second opting and it does nothing again (just stops at the blank screen). I keep trying to turn off and restart my computer several times now. After that, it will came up with one of these every time now : 1) insert cd 2) windows error recovery 3) it will go on to 'starting windows ' but blank screen after that.

2.0 Net Framework Error - Cannot Install On A 64-bit Operating System

Neighbor purchased a dell inspron 400 (zinohd): amd athlon2850e (1. 8ghz, 512k), 3gb ddr2 sdram at 800mhz, 320gb serial ata hard drive (7200rpm), windows 7, service tag 2858hk1
 
He had a number of problems that i have helped him cure. But one issue remains. Each time he turns on the computer he gets a notification that he needs to load and run .net framework 2. 0. However, when he goes to the referenced site and tries to download and run the program he gets an error message stating: "error: cannot install on a 64 bit operating system. " Ignoring this message doesnt appear to adversely affect the operation of the system but he has not used the computer for long and he fears there may be issues downstream.
 
He is an older gentleman, not at all computer savy and has been very frustrated by this and his inability to get help from dell or microsoft. He is considering returning the product.
 
In an effort to help him out, i have looked into this problem through the internet. I am an experienced pc user and can normally handle most issues like this but im not yet familiar with windows 7. I understand that windows 7 includes the .net framework 3. 5. 1 as an os component. I believe this means you will get the .net framework 2. 0 sp2, 3. 0 sp2 and 3. 5 sp1 plus a few post 3. 5 sp1 bug fixes.

Thus, you don't need to manually download .net framework 2. 0 and install it on windows 7. I have run the verification tool found on the internet by searching cannot install on a 64 bit operating system " 2. 0 net framework on google to verify the existence of these .net framework versions. The all are verified successfully. How can we eliminate the initial popup notification from appearing at power-on? What am i missing?

System Backup Not Found When Using Express Card Usb 3.0 With Device

I upgraded from vista to windows 7 and made a system backup through the backup center. The backup center recognized my external drive (freecom), which is connected to an express card using usb 3. 0. However, when i wanted to see whether the image was on the drive through clicking the restore function (sorry don't know the exact names in english; a have a dutch windows 7 copy), the drive isn't recognized. It just doesn't seem to be there.

When i use the windows recovery disk, it isn't recognized either. But when i put the device straight in a usb 2. 0 input bus it is recognized. This is odd. Just wanted other users to know what to do when they use 3. 0 through an express card.

Run 2 Operating Systems

I have purchased a dell computer with the windows (r) 7 professional 64 bit operating system and now have found out that i can not run some programs because of the 64 bit. I believe i can run 2 operating systems by creating a partition on my hard drive. This i have managed to do. I had 3 primary partitions (oem, recovery and then the one with the operating system win7) i shrunk the os drive, created a new volume and thereby created a new partition (logical drive).

Now i believe i could just insert my xp disk that i had from previous computer and it should prompt me where i would like it to be installed and then i would have 2 operating systems to choose from every time that i start the computer! I am nervous to do that, as the microsoft help info says that it is important to install earlier versions first and that you could actually make the computer not work all together.

Am i understanding the microsoft info correctly?
How do i get around this?
Would purchasing a win7 32-bit and letting them run next to each other be an option?

Swapping Operating Systems

I purchased the windows 7 upgrade disk for home premium and upgraded my copy of vista on my desktop. My wife has a vista installation on her laptop. I was considering buying windows home professional but this would only be useful if it was on my desktop.

Would i be able to apply my already-used upgrade disk to her laptop?  It would be a shame to have to waste the upgrade disk i spent all that money on. In other words, did that update disk "bond" to the original vista installation i overrote on my desktop?

2 Operating Systems On One Hard Drive

I just downloaded windows 7 on my computer. I had windows vista and i had problems with vista, hence why i upgraded to windows 7. I guess something went wrong with the download because when i turn my computer, i have to pick which operating system i would like to use (vista or 7). When i went to re-install microsoft office into my computer, i got a notification that my hard drive was almost full (not even enough space to install office), and i would like to get rid of vista to clear all that hard drive space up again. Please let me know how to do this.

Rolling Back Operating Systems

I just discovered that by upgrading from vista to windows 7, i created a problem with my hp dv9000 laptop. So now if i want to ever be able to use wireless again i must uninstall windows 7 and go back to vista. Can anyone either provide me a way to roll back the os or to solve the problem without changing os. The problem is odd, i did the same thing to my work laptop and i am still able to use my wireless air card, and with my home laptop i am unable to get online with any wireless. It seems as if the system no longer searches for wireless connections, any feed back is most welcomed. Anyone with hp now know they refuse to develop drivers to support windows 7.

Upgrade On System With Raid 1 Drive System

What is the best way to upgrade a critical system with windows vista home premium running with two hd's in raid 1, to windows 7? I would prefer to do an in place upgrade, so that i would not have to reinstall applications or data files. One way that occurred to me, would be to disconnect one the hd's during the upgrade. If everything went well, i could reconnect the other drive (or better yet, a new clean drive), which would then be automatically mirrored by the hd controller. Has anyone successfully done this?

No Tv Tuner Found

I have a new computer running windows 7. My video card is an ati radeon hd 5770 1024mb gddr5.
I neglected to order a tv tuner when i placed the order for the computer, consequently, i've purchased a tv tuner - ati tv wonder hd 650 pci digital & analog tv tuner. The bad news is the tv tuner is for windows vista.

I've downloaded from ati a driver but i am still unable to get the tv to work in my computer. The computer is unable to find the necessary tuner(s). Any suggestions ?

Thanks for the input. I've got the problem fixed. I gave up and removed the tuner card from the computer, re-plugged in everything to the computer and when i turned it on, it showed "tuner driver installed successfully". So, i put the tuner back in and everything is working fine now.

Specified Module Cannot Be Found

I have been having a problem lately when i turn on my computer. Before i have been having the error, windows startup has been smooth an quick. But right now, when i restart my computer, the startup is pretty long and when i sign in my account i get "specified module cannot be found. " It goes on to say winpap32. Rom cannot be found. I searched this file online and cannot find it. It seems since i started having this problem, startup has been long. Any ideas?

Ideas:i had a trojan between the time startup was smooth and rocky. But i removed it and did an immediate scan with no more detected.could the missing module be hindering my startup? I have tried looking online for the file and or people with similar problems. It seems that i am the only one.
