I/O Error
« on: March 26, 2012, 01:13:18 pm »
Hi. As some of you know, I usually have problems with my computers. Well, here we go again. I accidentally uninstalled my win7 OS, so I started up on a Gateway recovery CD. As it was loading the files, I came across I/O error: 0xc000000e9. It wont start from that cd. Im currently running a temp version of windows (that only lasts for 30 days): Windows 7 Home Premium N. I want my old OS back though. How do I do this? I have a NV57H Gateway model computer, with the old C:/ partition backed up, but without the required sytem files. The OS im trying to restore is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

accidentally uninstalled? 0_o

for what it's worth, the only time i've come across an error message like that was when the cd itself was scratched, but that was way back on xp, since i haven't used wondows in a while.

The disk is scratched up pretty bad... Is there a way I can make another Recovery Disk #1?

Yeah that's the same error I got when installing Warcraft III a few years ago, as my CD was scratched. As for doing a recovery disc, sadly you need Windows installed, though, since it's from where you create the disc.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I fixed my computer. :P
Apparently when I contacted Gateway service they said I should order a 20$ DVD set to restore my computer.
When I asked about the PQService partition, they said they had no info and I was suddenly disconnected from the chat.
I did some research, and PQService is the recovery partition, so I simply set it as active via PWHE7, rebooted, and YAY!!! Windows 7!

yay for you to installing Windows 7 again! :D

When I had to format Windows 7 last time, I couldn't find where my Windows 7 CD was so I had to install Win XP until I find my cd.
Sig wipe!
