Expanding windows files stuck

Expanding windows files stuck DEFAULT

The situation where changing to compatibility mode solved your problem comes down to not having the correct mass storage drivers in your build. Compatibility mode has no direct link to the lifespan of XP, but reflects the arrival of the SATA interface which operating systems do not support by default. Unlike the older IDE (PATA) standard, which was a true standard, the SATA interface is supported by a large number of different chipsets which require different drivers, and SATA itself has evolved from SATA 1 to SATA 2 to SATA 3 and now SATA 6.

With each new hardware release, it becomes necessary to add the correct mass storage drivers to the build. Without that, the functionality of the build process is trashed.  Although the process completes in an additional 2 hour, I am left wondering what the state of the hard disk is, at the end of the build process. Clearly this additional time is being spent on something like retries as the disk is not being accessed correctly, and the final performance may end up being hit as well.

  Hello! Computer with Problem HP 300-1330. My Computer HP 600-1005. They Both use the same DVD Drive. I have Tried my drive in her computer, same Problem. Please try to think away from DVD & DVD Drive Problem. I eliminated that in the first 2 hours of trying to fix this. Remember I said Can't Repair or Restore. And there are over 100 restore points on that computer. 1 that I created months ago is labeled PERFECT. But Can't find Restore Points. Recovery disc will not work. Windows DVD when inserted after you choose which partition says Coping files and you can see it is. but then it goes to Windows is Expanding Files (0%) forever. My self, I am thinking Motherboard or Processor. I removed her hard drive last night. Put it in an External Enclouser that has USB and plugged it in to my computer. Her hard drive is just fine. Re installed it in her computer 20 minutes ago. Tested hard drive with Spinrite, and WD had a couple of test I ran, It's a good hard drive. I know there are Restore points on there. But computer can't see them, Like it can't start windows, it can't expand files. Help! Any help will be greatly appeciated.

  Have A Great Day!

  Muchofreeo.

  Hello! Still No Changes. Start up repair Details:

Ran 5 Test Completely Successfull Error code for all 5 test 0x0

Root cause found:

Boot Configuration is corrupt.

Repair action:Partition table repair

Result:Error Code=0x490

Time taken=2371 ms

 

  I still don't think there is anything wrong with Windows files or hard drive.

Can't reinstall windows from thumbdrive. I created it, but it's not working.

I have been trying custom installation because upgrade wants to have

windows running when you insert the disc.

  Please tell me if I am missing or doing something wrong? I am still thinking

it is processor or motherboard. Too many differant issues at one time:

Can't Start Windows.

Can't Repair Windows

Can't Restore Windows

Can't Recover using Disc created by this PC

Can't Install windows - Custom Install

 

Known to be Good:

Hard drive

DVD drive

Windows Installation DVD

Recovery Disc - Created on this PC

Thumbdrive with Windows 7 - Works on another PC

Network adapter - Light flashes while sending MS Error Report

Mouse & Keyboard - Tested on my PC

Monitor - But touch screen doesn't work until windows can start

 

I am running out of things to tell you. I've checked everything I can

think of. I am open for suggestions though. Have A Great Day!

Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated,

Muchofreeo.

This repairs the BCD store: How to repair and reboot to Windows 7:


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


If you do not have access to either disc: ISO download with SP1 included
http://techdows.com/2011/07/download-windows-7-integrated-with-sp1-iso-official-direct-download-links.html


Create a Bootable Windows 7 DVD using the .ISO file
Burning a Windows 7 ISO File on a DVD
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/977640


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click ‘Next’.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the display.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that “Windows found problems with your computer’s startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?”


d) Click ‘Repair and restart’ and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click ‘Next’ at the keyboard selection prompt and when the ‘System Recovery Options’ screen appears verify that the “Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows” is selected.


Note: On a Dual Boot system there may be only one operating system listed if you have removed one of the two versions of Windows 7. Click the ‘Next’ button.


f) Now from the menu list select the ‘Command Prompt’ option.


g) At the DOS prompt type the following four commands:


bootrec.exe  /fixmbr


bootrec.exe  /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)


bootrec.exe  /ScanOs  (Optional)
The /ScanOs option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.
Additionally, this option displays the entries that are currently not in the BCD store.
Use this option when there are Windows Vista or Windows 7 installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.


bootrec.exe  /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the ‘Startup Repair’ option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages


“Windows cannot repair this computer automatically” and “Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically”.


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don’t send options.

 

Note: Please perform step j as detailed below, startup repair must be run multiple times (At least 3 times).


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don’t send window. Next click on the ‘View advanced options for system recovery and support’ option and from the main menu once again click ‘Startup Repair’. This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted “Startup Repair could not detect a problem”, click ‘Finish’  and run the ‘Startup Repair’ option one more time, click ‘Finish’, and then remove the System Repair DVD and click ‘Restart’.  Reboot the computer.

  Hello! I appreciate your help, But Nothing on DVD or Thumbdrive will work! You can see everything but when you choose an option it just sits there and does nothing. Tried 3 Windows DVD install disc and 2 dvd drives. This is not gonna work!! Tried Install with Thumbdrive. Same thing you can see what to choose but it goes nowhere. I took the drive out of my computer that works perfectly and a NEW never been used Windows 7  DVD, and the same thing.

Windows is on hard drive but motherboard and processor can't see it - Won't Boot

Windows cannot repair with or without disc - Will Not Work

Windows System Restore don't work - Can't find 1 and there are over 100. 1 created by me in Nov 2012

Windows Recovery Disc will not work - It just sits there after you choose an option. Discs made on that pc

Windows 7 can't be installed from DVD - Hangs for days at Expanding Files (0%) Forever

Windows 7 can't be installed from a Thumbdrive - Hangs when you choose an option

 

I Removed Hard drive and coppied an operating system on it last nite. Renamed first windows, Old Windows. Reinstalled Hard drive. Computer can't start windows. Tested hard drive with 4 test, and it's good. I am thinking Motherboard or Processor. Was hoping someone could suggest something to try that maybe I overlooked. I am about to make a boat anchor out of it. Any Help would be Greatly Appreciated. The girl that owns this computer is very poor with 4 kids and no husband or boy friend, I am just trying to help her out. Her mother used to be my best friend in the world, but was killed a year ago in a car accident. I was sure hoping to help her out. This is the first computer, I can say I don't know what's wrong with it. I have fixed Hundreds of computers. But this 1 has me stumped. New Motherboard on ebay $48.00 plus shipping. New Processor on ebay $63.00, with free shipping. If it was mine, I would.

But this belongs to someone else, and she has no extra money.

  Thanks Much,

  Muchofreeo.

Run Memtest86+: 
This runs from a boot disk or CD and should eliminate or confirm if one or more of your memory
sticks are bad, if the SPD values in the BIOS are correct AND in your case, if your Motherboard / Processor is still minimally functional.

http://www.memtest.org/
Memtest86+ Guide/How To's (use the .ISO to create a bootable CD)
http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409152


Let memtest run for as long as you can: 2,4,6,8 or more hours (at least 3 full passes), if no errors by then your ram is OK. Processor should at least be functional but CPU core voltage may be set too low to run under a moderate to heavy load, check the BIOS for the current CPU voltage.

 Hello I Downloaded Memtest86+ V4.20 Pre Compiled Bootable ISO (zip}. I unzipped it, Burned it to disc using Power ISO. I tried F1, and boot menu.

Computer will not run it. Pauses for 2 min and starts windows repair utility.

So I tried the Memtest86+ V4.20 Auto-Installer for USB Key. Tried F1 and boot menu. it sees USB device but can't run it. Pauses 5 min and starts Windows Repair Utility. This is an HP 300-1330. I googled it last night and found there is an overheating issue. Seams HP didn't provide enough vent holes for adaquit cooling. Some are saying Processor over heats and fails. Read all my symptoms and please tell me if this sounds like a processor. If so I found 1 for 99 cent last night on ebay. I am thinking it is worth a try. Even with shipping it's under $5.00, and includes Heat sink and Fan. But I am just not sure it is the processor. I have never in over 200 computers I've worked on, had a bad processor. So I don't really know what to look for. Any Help will be Greatly Appreciated.

  Have A Great Day,

  Muchofreeo.

First if at all possible verify the memtest DVD  / USB will load and run on another PC, if it does then you know the media is good.

 

Second, did you check the BIOS, either the DVD or USB must be set s the 1st boot device for memtest to load and run. If it's not do so and try again.

 

If the above has been tried and memtest still does not run then chech the CPU coller / fan for dust bunnies which can cause overheating.

 

As for Ebay, what about the seller's rating, 99 cent is way too cheap?

Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me to perform a clean Windows 7 install on his PC. His motherboard is like 8 years old and has no option for USB booting, so I had to use the old DVD method. I bought a DVD+R from a local shop and burned the Windows 7 ISO on it using "Windows 7 USB DVD download tool". I booted the DVD on my friend's PC and everything seemed fine untill the second installation step: "Expanding Windows files". It was stuck at 0% for like 30 minutes.
I removed every component in his PC exept the vital ones (MOBO, CPU, RAM, HDD, DVD-ROM) and tried installing it again several times but it was still stuck on 0%.

NOTE:
1.Windows version: 7 Ultimate SP1 x86
2.Everytime I tried installing the Windows I deleted every partition, including the System reserved and recreated them, then formatted them.
3.I tried loading default bios settings.
3.When I arrived home I also tried installing the Windows form the same disk on VirtualBox and the same problem: stuck at Expanding Windows files 0%

I personally think it's the DVD+R's fault. Do I need to find a DVD-R? Or is the DVD+R ok but the "Windows 7 USB DVD download tool" method is not good ? And if it's so, what software should I use to burn another DVD installation disk?


Friend's PC specs:
-CPU: Intel Celeron E3200 2.4Ghz
-RAM: 2GB DDR2
-HDD: Samsung 100GB (SATA)
-DVD ROM: Asus (IDE)
