Windows 7 Error: 0xC0000005

    Question

  • well,,,i browsed through the forums,,,,checking for a solution of this problem,,,but none of it has a solution....
     plzz,,,anyone  cud u help me with this matter??

    welll.....i got myself a copy of windows 7  7600 rc,,,,,

    i  burnt  the iso file onto a dvd using Power Iso

    now when i boot from the dvd,,,installation starts just fine,,,,but
    after i select "upgrade" install,,,

    it tells me to remove the installation disk,,,start windows and
    restart installation...

    Now the problem is,,,,when i start the installation in windows,,,i get
    the following error----

    "Windows installation encountered an unexpected error. Verify that the
    installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation.
    Error Code: 0xC0000005"

    It is driving me nuts,,,,,some forums suggested  to change sata to
    ide,,,but there is no such option in my bios....[i guess so]

    i tried updating my bios ,,,, but since my battery is damaged [i tried
    high performance,,,which resulted in this]

    my bios could'nt be updated....

    ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED....

    This issue may cuased by the following factors:

    1. legacy Windows have an activation issue.
    2. There is a sources access problem on the disc or harddisk.
    3. A software with incompatibility issue on Windows 7.

    To check it.

  • the simpliest and only way tht i solved this is:

    1. instal another operating system e.g xp (preferable) or vista n then u ll be able to acces ur previous unseen drives...

    2. then u take ur data on an external hard drive

    3. then u go n instal ur win7 but format all partitions and make new ones, coz registry and sectors were damaged so it needs to set new one in order to work properly..

    4. thts it.
