  1. By not installing windows 8 and installing a compatible OS
  2. unksol, He posted under window 7.
    Concur with anonymous1 on using the lates Bios revision for your Motherboard:
    But do need to verify are you tring to install Window8, or Windows 7 and if it is 32 bit or 64 bit OS.
    2nd, Hard to answer without knowing your system.

    There are also applications that will check your system and identify if it meets the requirements of the operating system.
    For windows 8:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/system-requirements
    Click on Upgrade Assistant. at bottom of Page.
    For Windows 7:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/upgrade-windows-vista
    Click on "Windows 7 system requirements" to see requirements.
    Click on "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor" to run a system check.

    HOLY CRAP. I have been working on this stupid error on and off for the better part of a week. Scouring the interwebs, downloading drivers, configuring BIOS, must have formatted this brand new drive and reinstalled windows at least a dozen times. And then some random comment at the end of a thread............you sir are my hero. Thank you

    I did this and it took me through the Windows sign in/ sign up process...
    And then after all that it said it was checking System Performance and so on...I waited for that...
    Then it just took me BACK to the same error message again!

    Then it went back to the old "Windows failed to start. ... " black screen.

    Am curious why this didn't work for me like it worked for others... and if you or anyone has any other suggestions.

    I installed a new Seagate Barracuda 2TB internal hard drive to replace the old 750gig hard drive on my Dell XP430 desktop.
    Trying to install Windows Vista 64bit Home Premium on the new hard drive.

    By the way, I have some drivers on a disc but how do I get the system to load them when there is no Windows loaded already?
    And my Seagate drive instructions say "Boot your system in to the Windows Vista CD". That is what I did.
    Then it says "When prompted by Windows to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver, press the F6 key then the S key when prompted, to specify additional devices.
    Then insert the SATA driver cd and press enter.

    It explains that I am supposed to prepare a disc of SATA drivers and I do have a Dell driver disc that *may* have them on it and I also have a disc of drivers and BIOS I copied from the Dell site. However - and this is key - I WAS NEVER PROMPTED DURING THE WINDOWS INSTALLATION PROCESS TO INSTALL A 3RD PARTY SCSI OR RAID DRIVER.

    PLEASE HELP! I HAVE A NEW HARD DRIVE, READY TO ROCK AND ROLL BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT IS THE NEXT MOVE TO GET OVER THIS MAJOR HUMP!
  10. @mattman111 dude i specially signed up to this site so i could thank you. its almost midnight and i promised my customer his laptop would be ready first thing in the morning! you are a legend
  11. To sort it out do this:
    At the first error hit SHIFT F10
    Type -
    Cd..
    Cd..
    Cd c:\windows\system32\oobe
    Msoobe
    This should force the installation to continue.
    If the error reappears click on OK and let it restart the system, once restarted it should carry on with the installation
  12. @adilk47 thank you so much I thought my ssd died or something!
  13. It usually take alot for me to learn something foundationally new, but Mattam111 You should get paid for that one. :)

    Worked for me too, thanks Mattam111
  15. Actually...it seemed as if it would work as windows asked a few questions but then when to frozen black screen and flashing curser. On reboot, it now freezes earlier. Piece of crap PC manufactures. I'm going Apple.
  16. Well I tried mattam111 idea but no success. My problem occurred when I tried to change to a new hard drive. I did some more research and I found out what the problem was. Because I have a computer that dates back to 2010 and from what I've learned 2010 or earlier, it is not compatible with AF hard drives. AF stands for advanced format. I need to use a hard drive that is a 512 byte sector hard drive. This is per HP support. The computer I have his model HPE–240F

    Why does this work for some, but not others? I'm wondering what the root of the problem is to begin with.

    I had to use SHIFT+FN+F10 to get the window. Then it's just one crazy cycle. Right after creating a user account it goes right back to the error usually without mouse control. I can type the command again, but over and over and over etc...

    I have 3 MacBook Pros here all doing the same thing. The Developers at my company need to have Windows 8.1 on them. I used to be able to install 8.1 on MacBooks easily. Now impossible. Any suggestions?

    ============================================
    Thanks Man, Your suggestion worked but before applying your solution, I did this :-
    My Laptop is HP Pavilion dv6

    First file listed is for 64 bit operating systems.

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=22194&ProdId=2101&lang=eng&OSVersion...=

    OR

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22194

    Use the Drive Options - Advanced method to install, and then select the Load Driver option.

    If you check the box, only the compatible SATA driver will be selected.
    =============================
    Next I applied your solution but the error message re-appeared. So, I allowed it to restart and everything was now fine. Just to be doubly sure , I shut the laptop down and boot it again. Now guess what ?................... EVERYTHING WAS STILL FINE.

    Thank you very much.
  22. WOOOOOWWWWW UR DABEST. IT WORKS THANK U SOM UCHHHHH
  23. Msoobe works for me, could you explain what is exactly this Msoobe thing? thank you

    Probably too late to solve your problem now, but I had exactly the same issue after trying the command line fix suggested here. I restarted the computer and it then booted up, but lots of things just weren't working properly.

    It turned out the problem was that I was installing 64 bit Windows 7 on a system that only supported 32 bit. So once I reinstalled using my 32 bit disc, everything was fine.

  31. The msoobe worked like a charm! Man how do you guys figure this stuff out? It did the same problem as everyone at before it finished it sent me back to the account creation so I just forcefully turned off the laptop, turned it back on without the USB/CD in the laptop and it continued to install as normal. Thanks again!

  36. You shouldn't need to perform the msoobe steps. The issue is that your SATA operation is in RAID and needs to be in AHCI.
    Go into your BIOS and change it.
    Reinstall Windows GG :bounce:

    Disagree. Acer x1200 doesn't have space for raid, and first thing checked was Sata in ahci. One issue people have with USB stick is that you need to remove USB after first reboot.

    The msoobe command worked for me.

    This HD was on a networked vista account, curious if that may have caused issues. Windows formatting options suck.

    It's not helpful when you're so sure of an answer that doesn't apply to others.
  38. Chaosdreamer.....Thank You
  39. Not opening command prompt for me ..what to do about this . I don't have raid in sata mode . It's a dell Inspiron n5010. Should I take out pendrive after first reboot??
  40. Thank you sir, you saved my life :D
  41. I have done the CD C:\windows\system32\oobe
    Msoobe
    Command but it doesn't finish the install for me it restarts my Pc and pops up "windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, restart the installation." and yet when I restart it I have to do it all again. Please help this is so frustrating.
