Cannot Boot Because Of Missing Or Corrupt Driver


I am upgrading from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate and get the message that windows cannot boot because of missing or corrupt driver jraid.sys. I receive this message in the middle of the upgrade process during the first automatic reboot in the upgrade process. How can i get past this error and continue with the os upgrade process? The named driver does exist in the named subdirectory with a file date of june 25th. All other drivers in the $windows. ~Btwindowssystem32drivers directory have a file date of july 13th.

Driver Is Missing Or Corrupt Error Code 39

I installed my external disk drive to my new mini hp laptop, i installed a number of programs. I later performed a system restore to factory settings due to multiple, alike programs that were not necessary. I then set up my computer for a second time. This time when i was installing my software for my printer, which worked previously and i performed printing tasks, something happened and i have have no idea what. My disk device will no longer work. It tries to install, but fails.

The usb mass storage device works, but not the usb 2. 0 dvd-rom. I even plugged it to my desktop to try it there, and it worked the first time, now when i try it nothing happens, the computer doesn't even recognize it. I keep getting prompted to buy driver cure and driver fixers but i don't want to pay 30 - 50 dollars when i already paid for the device.

Master Boot Record Corrupt After Reboot

So every time i reboot windows 7 ultimate it loads only to the loading screen and then stops. The only way to fix it is to put the dvd in the drive and use bootrec /fixmbr and then reboot and it loads as it should. I have tried rebuilding the file also using bootrec and the same thing happens as soon as i restart the mbr record is corrupt each time. This is a fresh build of windows 7 with a brand new fujitsu hard drive. I checked the hdd and its seems ok. The drive is sata drive running in compatible mode. Now i get no errors it just locks up at the loading screen and sits there forever. So it is really hard to diagnose what is going on.

Unable To Boot - Ndis.sys Is Corrupt

I ran the upgrade about 6 months ago and my computer has run fine, until yesterday when windows failed to start as described. At first i got the same message in the startup repair and diagnosis log, but after several attempts to start, sometimes i get that same message, and other times i get , under "root cause found:" boot critical file c:windowssystem32driversdis.sys is corrupt
The rest remains the same. I am not running any other os. Any ideas out there on resolution?

Code 39 - Corrupt Driver Dvd-ram

I recently was trying to get a camcorder to work with my new win 7 pc. The cam device allows a web cam configuration via usb but a video capture driver must be installed. This driver would not install on win 7. I tried installing the device in xp sp3 mode by using the compatibility option in the properties of the .exe file while the file was on the cd. This still gave the error.

The capture will not work. Now though my dvd drive will not work either. I tried disabling it, unistalling it and each time the driver installs the same way and gives the code 39 error. I also connected a usb dvd drive and it show the very same error. The dvd drives show a yellow triangle in device manager now and neither show in my computer. I have tried reboot with out the device then boot again with a drive (either) and it always has code 39. What can i do now?I have a ghost image but i would rather find a solution incase it happens again.

Boot Manager Is Missing

I'm having the same problem as others with the boot manager is missing error. I format my hard drive before every installation, but the only way that i can boot into windows is if i keep the system disc in the cd drive. If i remove the disc from the cd drive, i get this boot mgr missing error.

Microsoft has never built an os that performs, is stable, and has no errors. Why is microsoft so popular, when their operating systems quite obviously suck! I have a custom build, can't call anyone for support, and microsoft won't back the garbage that they sell with free support, why, because for one thing, they don't can't fix their own garbage, and for another thing, they are always overwhelmed with all the errors from their garbage. They've been building this garbage for years, when are they going to get one right?

File Boot Bcd Missing 0xc000000d

When i try to boot, with the dvd drive empty, with windows7 home premium disk or the repair disk as per instructions, i receives an error message of: file:bootbcd missing. Status: 0xc000000d. Info: the windows boot configuration data file is missing required information. I loaded windows 7 with this same drive and initially everything was working correctly. Then this problem began, the drive is working with all of my other disk. Changed the the statup boot cycle to the hard-drive, and this system starts right up?

History: i had had problems with using the upgrade, i would lose everything but the background on startup, so i formatted the hard drive and then loaded the full version of windows 7, from the upgrade disk. The problem mentioned began then.

If the file is actually missing , why will it work with the hard drive, and yet not with the disk drive?

Bootmgr Is Missing - Computer Won't Boot Correctly

Original title: my bootmgr is missing again. Press ctrl+alt+del to restart after trying to update my mobo's bios my computer won't boot correctly. I have already tried putting the os disc in and choosing the repair functions. This has not worked. It wouldn't even find my os.

After that it finally recognizes and see's my installation when i do the rebuild bcd, but i still get the same error message.

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

.ashx Driver Missing

When viewing sites that require the . Ashx driver to view pdf-like documents, suddenly i'm getting dialogue boxes saying that ie8 doesn't recognise the file extension. I'm running xp home edition version 5. 1. 2600 sp3 build 2600 on an msi wind netbook and have ie8 version 8. 0. 6001. 1702

I've googled (sorry) the internet and searched the ms answer site (all too technical for me) but can't find anything to help (except pareto driver cure, which looks dodgy, keeps popping up. Think this is related)? How do i fix this problem?

Missing Cd/dvd Device Driver

Win7 x64 boot disk results in "missing cd/dvd device driver ("a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing)". I'm doing a full install (custom) of windows 7 from a nec3520a cd/dvd and a dvd burned from the downloaded (twice) student file for windows 7 x64.

I am unable to get past the point of having "no apparent" driver for my dvd. As stated earlier, after i click "install" on initial screen (this is after the "loading files" screen which runs for a couple of minutes loading win7 files), i get an error screen saying "missing cd/dvd drive driver", then directions to install a disk/dvd/whatever with the driver.

If i just click next, it looks for a driver, doesn't find it, and then offers me a selection menu for different drivers( all of which are blank, there are no drivers listed). I then have an option to "rescan" for updated hardware, i suppose, or "browse" to go find the driver.

I have, and can't get any sort of driver for my nec3520, which i've been using for a couple of years now; it's supported directly by windows built-in drivers. Nec doesn't even provide a driver, for 32 or 64 or anything. I suppose this whole thing has to do with my "custom" install from a bootable dvd of the x64 version, but i can't find any way to get around it.

Western Digital My Book Missing Driver

I have two wd mybook storage devices. Both worked on my previous pc running xp 32 bit. I have now rewed my pc running windows 7 64 bit. One device works the other doesn't and when i troubleshoot the one that doesn't the troubleshooter indicates a missing driver. Curiously the older of the two drives works ok.

I've been in contact with western digital who state they do not provide separate drivers as they utilise what microsoft provide, of course reading the answers blog microsoft state that its not their issue either, which leaves me, and apparently others, with unaccessible data & $100 out of pocket and no one is responsible. Can someone please advise where i can download the microsoft driver from that thewestern digital device relies on?

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Xfx Radeon 5850 - Your Video Card Is Missing A Driver

I have an xfx radeon 5850 as my video card. It is fully updated to the latest 10. 3 drivers from the amd website. However, windows 7 feels the need (not sure if this was after an update, but more than likely because this was never there before) to tell me i need to install a driver. This is the only notification that the action center is giving me. But it doesn't stop there, it's also telling me that my video card is the "5700" series, sorry windows 7, but you're wrong. Since it's a 5850, it is clearly in the 5800 series.
