  1. Found the problem. My antivirus suite was causing the problem. I found it after I could not update the security definitions. I had to uninstall the antivirus software, rebooted and reinstalled. All is normal now. Admins Please mark Solved
  2. Hello all I recently did a clean install of windows 10 during the New Year weekend. Sometime this weekend I have to right click the start button to bring up a menu so I can shut down my machine. Anyone else run in to this and how do I fix it? Thanks
  3. Hardware Upgrade not= Sotware Upgrade. I -assume- you ran an OS Upgrade per the link inside above post#8 on two machines that "qualified". If the third does NOT qualify, then it won't work. You can NOT Upgrade an XPx86 to Win7x64. What does the above hilited mean anyway? Please revisit this - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd772579%28v=ws.10%29.aspx Thanks again. Sometimes my brain wont absorb things. I got it now. Well I at least know what someone is getting for Xmas
  4. This may sort of be off topic but I can't find an answer. I have a 3 computer upgrade pack of Win7 home. I only used it on 2 machines. when I went to activate the third machine, activation was denied. I did upgrade my one machine from a P4 dual core 32bit to a AM3 64 bit machine. Does this count as a third computer?
  5. Ty. That's what I think I did. I made custom Xp ISOs before upgrading to 7 and only have 7 on 2 machines. Could going from 32 to 64 bit count as a upgrade? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I downloaded the current eng ver of 7 home but when I tried to create a bootable disk I end up with a coaster. I an using image burn to burn the disk. Any ideas? Thanks One other thing I don't know what product key to use. The only valid one I have is for a 3 pack upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just finished installing the newly created iso on VMWare Player. It installed without any errors and exactly as I set it up. My next step is to play with removing some stuff and seeing how that goes. It worked as well as nlite does for XP.
  8. No, you don't need! You can download the full Windows 7 SP1 MSDN (SP1 already integrated) using the link given above! But, I don't think the upgraded Windows 7 key will match an original Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium! Thanks to let us know. This is a win7 pro version. I don't thimk it will work with my home premium key but I will try. It is possible but if I do recall correctly the version you get is determined by the key anyway. all flavors of win7 are on the disk. I know that is the way Vista was setup. DLing both ver of it now. I can still manually slipstream if this doesn't work.
  9. Oh I see. Well I can manually slipstream it.
  10. ok now that I got the program setup I cannot slipstream SP1 into it. I DL all 3 versions of SP1 as i do need to create an x386 version for a laptop. I DLed the .exe files but something tells me that is incorrect.
  11. I got it I had the wrong location for the imagex file also i did have a bit of trouble locating the dism file but I got it
  12. Hello Oh learned ones My source copy of Win7 is Home Premium x386 and x64. It is also the upgrade version not the full version. When I try to run 7 customizer, I can add all the files required until I try to add the Windows installation source. When I browse to the location it is at on my disk and insert the path, the utility crashes and you get the following error which I have attached. I also cannot locate the log file. Any help would be appreciated
  13. What version of 7 are you using? Different things are not accessible depending on the version.
  14. TY, I think I will.
  15. You could do that if you didn't forget about it. For people who do this a lot it is the best way to get SP1 but most home users don't know about the download center. Mark Minnich Sent from my BlackBerry 9800 using Tapatalk
