Reinstall of Windows 7 on partitioned system

Having some issues with a new Windows 7 (no OC) build with regard to:

a) event viewer errors / warnings
b) occasional blue screens
c) Shutdown stalls at "shutting down" screen.

Event viewer messages

-\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\ULCDRHlp.sys
-The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 10.
-The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service has reported an invalid current state 32.

Originally installed windoze on 1 TB drive and let it create the 100MB reserved and rest as C:\

Used Easus Partition Manager to shrink C and then used Windoze disk mangler to create several partitions.

Hardware seems fine .... went thru this with Win2k when it 1st came out and wound up installing one driver at a time to figure it out. So

Question: Has anyone re-installed Win7 ? Wondering what default behavior is with this new reserved partition. Looking to rewrite the reserved and C:\Partitions, leaving others untouched. Past versions of windows worked just fine but since it's late and I'm not doing till Saturday, figured I'd try and benefit from others experiences.

    JackNaylorPE,

    Did you perform a custom install or an upgrade install? If you did the latter, which version of Microsoft Windows were you previously using? The answers to these questions will assist me in offering you a more direct response to your issue. However, in the meantime, it currently sounds as though you may benefit from a "clean" or custom install or a Windows repair.

    Also, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and feedback.

    JackNaylorPE,

    Can you boot from the DVD and run a Windows Repair? Have you already tried this and if not has this resolved your issues?

  4. Can give it a shot ... will advise.
  5. Well that makes me 0 for 74 on Windows repair. Still no change .... well I have gotten rid of many of them:

    invalid current state was solved by an nVidia beta driver
    Sideshow one is Logitech, waiting for answer.

    Persistent ones are:

    -The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 10.
    -And the problem trying to log out .... system still hangs on logout and required hard reboot via reset button.
