You posted that you tried to install Windows 7, was this Microsoft update anytime?

 

If not, are you using a legal copy of a retail or OEM disc with a COA (certificate of Authenticiy)?

 

Since you have the installation disc I would suggest using it to access the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and use the command prompts there.

 

BleepingComputer has a tutorial for this, it can be found here.

Windows Boot manager appears showing the above mentioned 0xc0000428 error.. it also says try disabling Driver signature Enforcement

also tried repairing the OS using my old win xp sp3 installer...

 by means of fixBOOT, fixMBR.

and I have many unfortunate events to tell (haha, promise my mishaps on this problem really happened)

 

but still this error prevails.. (-_-) IM SOOO FRUSTRATED NOT BEING ABLE TO DO ANYTHING....

i wont even reach the Figure 2. Configure language and location options in Windows 7 Setup....

hmm~ pls help... im suffering in this problem for almost 3 weeks now...

 

ps: my current OS is win xp sp3.. not win 7...

According to Microsoft, the 0xc0000428 error usually occurs during upgrades because the install DVD itself is corrupt. The error indicates a system file in the kernel is corrupt, which would happen if the install DVD has issues.

As long as you have a valid product key, you should be able to install Windows 7 using a different install DVD, or try installing from a USB drive.

The c0000218 error means your registry is now corrupt -- again, this would result from a faulty install DVD. You could try the steps Microsoft recommends for this error --   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/156640  -- but I suspect using another install disk would be the better option at this point.

ill try to read on the support links u guys posted.. see if those thing will be helpful..

thanks BTW..

 

 

PLEASE HEAR ME OUT as ive said before im having this problem for some 3 weeks now~

TO Start,
actually i tried using the win 7 OS installer into my friends laptop....

and questionably~

it WORKED... (i cancelled the SETUP after seeing it continued to work)

I also did once tried to remove my hard disk and tried to reformat it into my friends PC, installed the OS (using the WIn 7 installer)..

it worked FLAWLESSLY.. no errors...

and after reformatting, I returned the reformatted and OS INSTALLED HARD Disk to my PC...

and that same error occured...

I BOOTED up tried HITTING F8 and selected "Disable Driver signature Enforcement" it restarted.. WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER shows up showing the SAME ERROR AGAIN... cant run the repair from the WIN 7 os installer because of the WIN BOOT MANAGER STOPS EVERYTHING...

Pressing "ESC" (pc will boot up)  Pressing "ENTER" (pc also boots up)

 

IS THIS AN HARDWARE ERROR??

IF SO..... WHAT CAUSED IT?? CAN YOU GUYS TELL WHAT HARDWARE (SO I CAN PUT hardware at fault INTO THE WASHING MACHINE HAHAAHAHA) 

or if it is SOFTWARE error ill try to browse around to to find a appropriate  TOOL...
 

 

PS: PLEASE TELL IF IM VIOLATING ANY RULE AND REGULATIONS IN MY PREVIOUS  POST..

You still haven't answered my questions.

 

Is this a upgrade to Windows 7 from XP?

 

Is this a retail or OEM installation disc?

 

Is this a legal copy?

 

If this is a legal installation disc for Windows 7 I would suggest that you use a program like Daik's Boot and Nuke to overwrite the hdd, this effectively will give you a fresh slate to work with, and then install Windows 7.

 

If you have any questions regarding the installation procedure you may want to check out this tutorial.

You're reply makes it clear the install DVD is not the issue. The error message you are getting, 0x0000428, can also indicate a hardware issue. The fact that the install worked on your friend's PC and with your hard drive, and not on your PC makes it pretty evident the problem is on your PC's hardware. It could be a system memory issue on your PC, it could be an issue with the motherboard bus that controls the hard drive on your PC.

Unfortunately the error code is not very specific in terms of identifying the exact hardware cause. Are there any other error code you are getting that might help pinpoint it?

@ dc3 sorry for not being able to answer all of your questions
 

Is this a upgrade to Windows 7 from XP?

YES

 

Is this a legal copy?

No (haha)
ill try to use Daiks Nuke thanks for that~

 

@ sflateguy

when i tried to install win vista it shows the error


STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}

The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\COMPONENTS
or its log or alternate.

hmm it might be connected with the vista error somehow~ 
dont know for sure..

That error message indicates the registry can't be loaded. It could be because a file is missing, or corrupt. That, in turn, could be due to hard disk corruption or the fact that the hardware may not be compatible with the OS you are trying to install -- given that you are trying to upgrade from XP to 7, that is a likely possibility. Did you check to ensure your PC is compatible with Windows 7? 

At this point, your only real option is to try and reinstall the OS after the drive is wiped clean. However, since you aren't using a legal copy, that may not work for you.

Any media which came with a laptop...is by definition an OEM install tied to that system alone.  Attempting to install such on another system is bound not to work properly.  Along with the legal implications of violating the EULA...the settings and drivers would be all wrong for the system, with the only possible exception being if the the two system were perfectly identical and made by the same OEM.  Even then, the license applicable would be a problem.

The bottom line here is that if you tried to do an upgrade with a disc that you don't have the UAC for, you will never be able to activate it without purchasing the UAC.  If this is the case then I would suggest purchasing a retail copy of Windows 7, wipe the drive, install the operating system, download the appropriate drivers and enjoy Windows 7 until it the end of its extended support which occurs on January 14, 2020.

 

Just out of curiosity, where did this installation disc come from?

As long as it involved a legal installation of Windows 7, you're welcome. :thumbup2:
