Hi everyone! I need help! I tried to install win 7 on my pc, wich previously had on it the same version of win,i.e. win7 , but i encountered a problem so i couldn't finish the installation. During installation process (i wanted to do a custom installation, therefore i started my pc by booting the CD containing the windows7), when i had to choose the partition on wich to install windows I wanted to be the same partition containing the old windows but foolishly i formated it first. So after i formated it i selected it as the one on wich the windows to be installed. After step COPYING WINDOWS FILES was checked, installation stoped at step EXPANDING WINDOWS FILES. It appeared a window that says: The installation was canceled; windows cannot install required files.the file may be corrupt or missing.Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code : 0*80070017.
I repeated the install process several times ,nothing changed.
I tried to start my pc normally but appears every time this: Windows boot manager; windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1.insert your windows disk and restart computer.
2.choose your lang settings and click Next.
3.click "repair your computer"

I took all these steps but when i do'repair your computer' shows up a window "system recovery options" in wich appears another one "searching for windows installations".this search brings no result and the windows closes.
The"system recovery options" provides 2 options to try but none offerred me a solution to finish windows installation.
Practically, i'm stuck. I looked for info online but i didn't find anything 4 my problem.
Please help me.! Was this problem caused by me formating the partition containing old windows?
Either way, what options do I have to make computer work?
I would appreciate your advices. I've been struggling with this for 4 days now.
Thank you in advance.

Let's stop doing [que FDR] again and again what has not worked.  Take a very long careful look at the DVD -- are there any stray scratches, mars, blemishes, fingerprints, faults, etc.?  If so, apply a micro-filter[?] specially-designed cloth and carefully in an "across-the-tracks" motion buff out any such undesired blemishes and whatnots.  Also, get a good proper cleaning CD-DVD for the computer's cd-dvd drive.  Perhaps let dc3 or Hamlius advise 'cause they know of the best cleaning materials to buy and use.  I haven't really kept up with that part of technology, so I'll be listenin' in.

  Then, if the DVD will boot into the first blue menu, only choose the default-format HD, default-clean-install of Windows.  If you have more than one HD, if possible, dis-engage any internal or external HD until install is finished.

Are you using a factory copy of Win 7?

 

The error message usually means either a bad DVD, or a read error on the DVD drive.

 

As RolandJS asks above, "are there any stray scratches, mars, blemishes, fingerprints, faults, etc.?"

 

If your disc is clean, you could try installing using a different DVD drive.

 

Provide make & model of computer, & service tag number if a Dell.

The Windows disk is corrupted, you have to download the ISO again and create a bootable disk to install Windows. Because have formatted your hard drive before install so you cannot boot into Windows anymore, the only way is to create a bootable disk from another computer, or borrow the disk from someone who has.

Thanks everyone for answers.
Indeed, the windows CD that i used has a damaged surface. So i decided to use another windows install disc.
Fos saw101:
i opened another post by mistake.
My laptop is asus k53u.
For batman 1234:
i tried to use another windows CD,but when i insert it in the cd dvd drive on screen appears
Reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.
Is that mean that my boot device is not selected as CD DVD DRIVE?
If so ,how can i make my pc boot this disk?
Thank you.

Do you have UEFI or BIOS?  If UEFI, Secure Boot must be disabled; Legacy boot enabled.  If BIOS, continue.

Ensure boot order is usb first, cd-dvd second, internal HD third.  I'm at school, cannot stay on long.  Hope you can get your windows reinstalled.

The ASUS k53u should have a recovery partition, provided it has not been overwritten at some previous point. If it does you can recover the unit to factory condition. A general video guide for the procedures to follow can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMSed6EQ7CU

After doing a factory restore you will need to perform the win 7 updates.

 

 

Indeed, the windows CD that i used has a damaged surface. So i decided to use another windows install disc.
 

Is the alternate disc a Microsoft genuine factory Windows 7 or is it a burned copy?

Hi,

I don't know if is BIOS or UEFI on my pc.
I started my pc, then pressed F2 and as a result i entered the blue screen wich looks like Bios.

The window has the name Aptio Setup Utility.
I don't know if is BIOS or UEFI because:

- on tab Main says:
"Bios information,
bios vendor
version
VBIOS version "
and other stuff...

-on BOOT tab says:

"Boot configuration
UEFI Boot disabled
PXE ROM disabled

Boot option priorities
Boot option 1 (my cd/dvd drive)
Boot option 2 (disabled)

Hard Drive BBS Priorities

cd/dvd rom drive BBSPriorities
Delete Boot Option"

So, in this situation i don't know what i need to do to make pc boot from the new windows cd.

I tried the option regarding recovery partition/factory state suggested by saw101 but it doesn't work- i think i have no more the partition necessary.

RolandJS mentioned that you need to Disable Secure Boot in your UEFI BIOS. If you have not done that, you need to check under the Security Tab in the BIOS & look for the Secure Boot option & change it to Disabled.

 Next go to the Advanced tab & see if you have a System Configuration option. Click that & it should take you to the settings for Boot Mode. Change it to CSM Boot

Select F10 to Save & Exit. Now try booting your Win7 DVD. Hopefully that will help. Post back.

Probably, me posting continuosly is annoying, but i really don't manage to get it done. So thank you 4 staying with me;

for saw101:
i read what RolandJS reccomended but look up for a post of mine as a response to that specific advise that he gave. in that post i described briefly my bios/uefi.

P.S. My tab Security contains no" Secure boot" section

and

tab Advanced contains sections other than those specified by you.
Here what contains:

"start easy flash
asus fancy start(disabled)
post logo type(static)
internal pointing device(enabled)
usb performance(normal)

SVM Mode(enabled)
legacy USB Support(enabled)
SATA Configuration"

what I mean is that given the
fact that my BIOS/UEFI looks like this ,I don't know how to do the settings that you(saw101) and RolandJS advised.

Hopefully, usb or cd-dvd boot will get us moving forward, I'm at school, scattered login/logout times, cannot maintain constant contact  :)

Well RolandJS,
i don't know how to make my pc boot the new windows cd because my BIOS commands are confusing and i don't find the way to make the changes that you wrote about.

And i did not understood, from studying my BIOS if it's actually BIOS or UEFI.

I described what my BIOS/ blue screen contains in my previous posts.

I'll be waiting for a guidance.

Thank you.
