P5Q Deluxe + insert proper media

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to reinstall Vista Business X64 onto my hard disk. The DVDRW drive is IDE and i keep getting a "insert boot media" problem. I also tried a SATA DVDRW drive (although it doesn't recognise CD's). It started loading files but then gave a "unexpted IO error".

I ordered a new Samsung Spinpoint F1 500gb and LG SATA DVD/RW and i hope it helps. Nothing i can do will get it anywhere.

Although, today i managed to boot from a CD with Killdisk Free on to format my HD again.

Any ideas why these errors may be occurring?

I had a similar error using VistaUltimate SP1...it just refused to work. I popped in an older OS disk (no SP1) and it loaded right away.

I doubt it is a hardware problem..more likely a weird disk.

have you tried a clear cmos at all? i've had this happen to me a few times. the bord either wouldn't recognize an HDD properly no matter what i did or it wouldn't boot from a DVD no matter what i did. (i even tried a new dvd burner) So as a last ditch effort, i tried a clear cmos and it worked perfectly once again.

Well, I tried 2 different Vista Business X64 (no SP1) disk although they were burnt from the same ISO. I downloaded the latest image from MSDN with SP1 included, so i'll try and burn that tomorrow morning and test it..

The disk/image has never given me gip before, so i can't see what would have happened since?

I have tried clearing the BIOS, but i couldn't tell what, if anything it did bar reset the time?

Jesus christ monkey balls, it's alive.

I tried my brothers SATA disk drive again, but this time burned the DVD with a different Vista image (SP1 instead of non-SP1) and it jumped into life. I haven't actually installled yet, i'm waiting for my new disk, but it's bizzarre how suddenly the IDE drive and the old disk stopped working all of a sudden.

Rep+ for the helpage!

I got as far as installing Windows, i select the drive to install onto... then i get this:

0x8007000d Cannot Install

Anyone know the reason for this then? All Google returns seem to be about activation issues?

Lol, i had to create a partition on the disk before i could install onto it.

So, i just created the largest one possible and it seems fine now

This has to be the most troublesome installation ever! It ain't over yet either :|

Google returned a lot more than that for that error. There are basically two things that will cause that:

1. You have a corrupt file, i.e. bad media, or a bad IDE cable. Switch out the IDE cable.
2. You have a USB device conflicting with the installation. Remove all other USB devices than your keyboard and mouse.

Edit: Or you didn't partition the disk and Windows somehow didn't figure it out.

This is endless problems.

I can boot when SATA is set to IDE. When i set SATA to RAID, it gives me the bootmgr error

At least i can get Windows open though
