Hey guys! I have a Windows 7 Installation Problem.
Firstly my specs: i7 3820 Rampage IV Formula GTX 680 EVGA 16 GB Corsair Veangence RAM (purchased today because i thought the old ram could have been the issue)
I have a 120GB Intel SSD which i want to install windows 7 on, the installation is succsessful, but when it restarts automatically, Windows Boot Manager appears with this messege:
WINDOWS FAILED TO START. A RECENT SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE CHANGE MAY BE THE CAUSE. TO FIX THE PROBLEM: (Just says steps to get into windows repair) Than says: FILE: \Windoes\system32\config\system STATUS: 0xc0000017 INFO: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.
I have tried: Changing the SATA port for my ssd Windows Repair Copying the Windows 7 disc at 1x speed. Trying to install it again and again... all with no luck!
More aboutsystem registry file missing corrupt
I installed Windows 8 and it worked perfectly.... So i coud draw out that any of my hardware was the issue.
I tried to install Win7 one more time and IT WORKED!
The mystery though is still unsolved and very cryptic....
