Re-image your computer utility from Windows 7 Pro 64Bit takes Days to to complete restore of my data RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in day 2.7 now of this machine, HP TouchSmart tx2 1377nr to reach 20% completion.  Given that the data sets are important enough, I am going to have to wait additional days it seems to see if it even worked.  I have done a network system image restore on this machine before and it took less than 40 minutes, as systems that speak to eachother in 1Gbps vernacular make short shrift of such things.  Well, no longer does this seem to apply.  Why is this taking the proverbial "month-of-sundays"? A rapid and hopefully un-catastrophic workaround would be nice, keep in mind that as of this moment, any request to stop the process it is in right now will result in system lobotomization except for the diagnostic and rescue partition.  I  have a week old system image I need restored asap.

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

     

    Before going further, I would appreciate if you can clarify the following questions:

     

    1.     Will this happen to other PC within the network?

    2.     Have you installed the latest network card driver from HP’s website?

     

    At this point, I would suggest either end the process, try again or try to configure speed settings on the network environment.

     

    Best Regards

  • Sorry Magon, busy busy busy here, been gone a bit.  Anyway, i resolved that issue and have now learned from HP and N-Trig both that all of my problems concerning my HP tx2 1377nr are Windows 7 related.  All of the updating that has been going on lately for that OS has screwed the code up somehow.  This is utterly unfortunate since I depend on that device for intensely important work that I am utterly incapable of doing at this time.  Currently, when i attempt to do the 64 bit rollback utility sent to me by N-Trig, the computer refuses to do so and tells me that the OS has switched Windows 7 into Vista/XP mode. 

     

    The fact that the OS can, at will, jeopardize the intellectual property of a sensitive project has officially gotten some attention turned towards it, HP and N-Trig are currently extremely worried about the fall out from this.  I am going to go ahead and enjoy my weekend, then Monday morning, some very direct, very discreet inquiries will be made as to when Microsoft is going to pull their head from their fourth point of contact and release the update that fixes all of this.  The update, I am assured, is in the works.  And weeks away.
