Windows 7 x64 installation on new HP 8200 elite sandy bridge GPT problem

    Question

  • Hi all!

    We have some really new HP 8200 Elite desktop computers (sandy bridge) here and we try to build our default image for that machines.

    So we tried to install Windows 7 x64 Ent (both SP0 and SP1) images.

    Windows 7 makes 3 partitons (ESP, MSR, Primary => GPT) as expected.

    But at the last point of the installation a message box showes up with message that the configuration data could not be written.

    The installation stops at this point.

    The log files (setuperr.log) shows the following errors:

    2011-05-25 13:03:22, Error  [0x060694] IBS CallBack_CreatePartition: Failed to Update the State Information, hr=0x800704c7
    
    2011-05-25 13:03:24, Error  [0x0606cc] IBS ApplyDiskOperationUsingService: Failed to correctly apply disk operation of type [0xe]; hr = 0x8007009a[gle=0x0000009a]
    
    2011-05-25 13:03:24, Error  [0x060492] IBS PerformDiskOperation:Disk operation of type [14] failed; hr = 0x8007009a
    
    2011-05-25 13:12:45, Error  [0x064230] IBSLIB Failed to create a new system store. Status = [c000000d]
    
    2011-05-25 13:12:45, Error  [0x0641b8] IBSLIB ModifyBootEntries: Error modifying bcd boot entries. dwRetCode=[0x57][gle=0x00000057]

    Somtimes (not reproduceable) if another partitions exists on the hard drive, the Windows 7 setup makes only 2 partitions (ESP, Primary => MBR).

    In this case the installation is finished and the system runs.

    We already escalated this ticked to HP, but the guys also have no answer so far.

    Any ideas?

  • Ok, we have an response from 2nd level support HP.

    A work arround is to boot the Windows 7 CD in "legacy mode".

    Windows 7 will only create two partitions (MBR) in this case.

  • Hi Joerg,

    Are you upgrading from an OEM system to Windows 7 Ent version? What's the original system version?

    I suspect the upgrading failure might due to the OEM partition inference. Therefore, I recommand you do a custom installation. You can backup the data firstly. If we do a custome install, all the data will be moved to Windows.old folder.

    Regards,

    Miya

  • Perhaps this will help review the configuration

  • It's a complete clean installation. We used serveral tools (Diskpart, GeParted) to write new MBR or GPR records.

    HP is now researching the problem; I'll keep you up to date.

  • You wanted an MBR installation?

  • HP: "8200 Elite  does not support GPT"

  • Thank you for the response.

    Now it makes sense. a BIOS issue.

  • Hello

     

    I installed windows 7 Sp1 64bit OEM version in a GPT disk without any issue on top of an HP 8200 CMT with BIOS 2.06, now updated to 2.09

    I didn't choose to have a GPT disc but Windows 7 did't it without asking me. I didn't realize it until I had a problem when , using Ghost32, I tryed to apply the image to the same disk to the same unit. the mrs partition was lost and Windows 7 was not booting.

    In any case the HP 8200  is able to boot from a GPT disk.

    Bye
