    must have missed the part where he said it worked in another PC

    But for some reason a fast burn on a few of my DVD ISO's didn't work..had to slow it down. *shrugs*

    I think it is a BIOS issue with my board. Some one can correct me if I am wrong but that error message is a BIOS error message not an error message generated by windows? There are a few other people getting this error with Windows 7. There is a thread on the Windows 7 beta forum about it. The best guess is a BIOS issue causing it.

    Yeah, it worked on my really old PC with an internal IDE DVD drive. It was actually a snap to install it on that PC. It turned out to be a real pain to install it on my newer (but still old) PC. At some point I will likely burn another at slow speed and try it. I don't know, I've booted lots of disks from this PC with no problems. Acronis boot disks, ERD commander, Windows XP and I think Vista, I can't remember if I still had my internal drive in when I ran the trial of Vista. I think I'll dig that disk out and try it too. The way things are going I'll likely never run Vista or windows 7 on this PC anyway because I can't get all my hardware to work due to lack or drivers. I may be running XP for a long long time.

    I just burned another DVD, this time at X6, my two options are X8 and X6. Still the same problem, but I think it's a problem with my PC not the Windows 7 DVD. I tried a windows Vista DVD and it didn't work either, not the same error though. I got the same looking for boot sector on CD message but it just went to the next drive instead of putting up a code 5 error. I'm thinking my BIOS can boot from a CD in the USB drive but not A DVD? Is that possible? XP boots fine from this drive and installs OK.

    Could any of these in event viewer be causing this?

    At startup and in event viewer I see this error (The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: SASDIFSV, SASKUTIL). After a half an hour into using PC I get this error (The platform firmware has corrupted memory across the previous system power transition. Please check for updated firmware for your system.) 2.5 hours into use of PC I see this error (The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage could not grow due to a user imposed limit.)


    Those are the errors I see.

    thx

    I'd bet the (The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: SASDIFSV, SASKUTIL) has something to do with it. My guess is those drivers aren't compatible with windows 7.

    EDIT: Looks like those files are associated with Super Anti Spyware. If so un-install it and see what happens on the next boot-up.

    Uninstalled my printer. Issues I am getting in event viewer now are:

    It wouldn't install. I received BSOD When I did. Maybe I can search for them and delete them. Question is where is the search for files and folders in win 7 /Vista since I am new to this OS?

    The problem might be that windows is looking for them and can't find them.
    Check the startup folder first and delete the shortcut if its there.
    If not run msconfig and look for them under the services tab and startup tab.
    If you find any entries for them remove the checkmark.

    The other way to do it is to run regedit and check
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    or
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    If the app has a service, edit:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
    and scroll down till you locate it. Then delete it.
    I don't know the same things you don't know.

    Used win explorer to find SASDIFSV, SASKUTIL which had to do with super anti spyware. It is not compatible with win 7 so I deleted them. rebooted and still received the same error.

    thx

    I used this option

    "If the app has a service, edit:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
    and scroll down till you locate it. Then delete it."

    And deleted SASDIFSV, SASKUTIL. I also used the find option for SASDIFSV and it found a copy called legacy_SASDIFSV. Should I delete that as well and all other options of SASDIFSV I find and the same for SASKUTIL?

    Please let me know.

    thx

    You can do it that way and it "SHOULD be safe. If you kill the wrong service though it could be a drag, just be carefull. You might want to export that key before you do any edits. Msconfig is safer you but I personally use regedit more often than not.

    before I delete anything else. I rebooted and no longer am I getting the error. Thx. I appreciate that. Any idea why my PC takes 4 mins to boot up? I looked in msconfig and didn't see anything there.

    thx

    Thats an age old question? Could be a lot of things. How many icons in the tray next to the clock do you have? System specs?

    Well that is a good point...its hard to say how many security holes there are with this OS at this point. It would be safe to say that you shouldn't be using this computer you have it on to purchase anything, view your bank account or anything else that requires sensitive passwords.

    Can I see preview thumbnails without Aero? My graphics card doesn't support Aero. Also, When I use task scheduler to launch a program, it launches it as minimized. Is there a way to launch it maximized? If so, how, please?

    thx
