Clean Install Fails - Missing Media Drivers

Aug 13, 2015

I'm a student and my university has a subscription to Dreamspark, so I got a Win10 key, along with an ISO-file from there. I'm using a Lenovo G700 and trying to perform a clean install from a bootable USB-stick.

I have tried creating this USB-stick with the "Win7 USB DVD Download Tool", using different guides from the internet with NTFS and Fat32 filesystem, launching the setup normally and through UEFI, using the "Media Creation Tool" ([URL]) to create the USB-stick directly and downloading the ISO file first and creating a bootable USB-stick from that with all the methods above, but no matter which of these methods I use, I get the following error during installation:

"A media driver your computer needs is missing." (URL)

Unfortunatley, I am currently running Win7 Pro x64 on my laptop and the following page says, that the upgrade to Win10 only works from Win8.1, not Win7: [URL]

When I try to use the "Media Creation Tool" to instantly perform an upgrade, I get the following error:

"Something happened... 0x80070422 - 0x90016"

What drivers could the installation possibly be missing? I don't have any external devices plugged in, except for the bootable USB-stick, of course. I tried downloading all drivers for Win7 x64 and Win10 x64 from the Lenovo page ([URL])

I have a HP desktop with W-7 that the HD is failing. (Almost failed)

I can't do a clone or a system image.

I installed a new HD and booted from my latest USB Upgrade from the Windows Media Creation tool.

I skipped the activation as it installed.

Now when I use the original product key, it fails to activate.

Media Creation Tool - Will Clean Install Delete Contents Of All The Drives?

I have upgraded to Windows 10 and it's activated. Now I want to do a clean install using the "media creation tool", but I'm not sure if it's going to affect my C drive only or all the partitions. And also, should I just reset the PC from the recovery option in the settings?

D Drive Is Missing After Clean Install

Mar 18, 2016

So, one day i was just thinking of doing a clean install of Windows from a bootable USB drive and after i got everything set up, clean installation done and ready to go i noticed that.. Windows only created one drive, and that's my lonely C: drive with the space of my old C: drive and D: drive together. So practically, it blended those two drives together, since im pretty sure i did everything correct on the clean installation but this is the result. Is there any ways to fix this situation WITHOUT going back to a restore point or without another clean installation of Windows from a bootable usb drive?

I have tried installing the Windows again from the settings of the Windows but it did not work and the problem still persists. Also, while i was doing the new install of the Windows, it threw me an error of the drive being GBT (or something along the lines) so i had to run cmd in the installer and clean disk 0 to make it work. and By doing that, it didnt show those 7-8 drives i had on the list in the installer but it actually deleted all of those 8 and left 1 standing so i clicked ''new'' and it made only one more that was called ''system memory'' or something along those lines.

My Computer is an Asus notebook x551ca.

One Or More Network Protocols Missing Message After Clean Install

Mar 16, 2016

So as the title says I'm receiving this error when connecting to the internet that says "one or more internet protocols is missing on this device".

First a little back story: To make it short, I just I replaced the power supply in my PC, and disconnected/reconnected all cables, including data cables. When I booted my PC back up I was having this issue. The icon shows that I have internet but it will not connect in the browser or download updates.

I have seen other threads with this same error message and I have tried every software fix I have seen at this point, including uninstalling and reinstalling my drivers. In desperation I did a clean install of windows 10 hoping it would fix this issue.

Drivers/Hardware :: Bluetooth Speaker Driver Install Fails - Device Manager

Jul 30, 2015

On Windows 8. 1, I had no issues with this speaker. It's a JBL Charge. After upgrading to 10 it worked fine until a reboot when it failed to connect (it pairs, but won't connect, and the speaker doesn't appear as an audio-out option in Sound settings).

The Bluetooth wizard in PC Settings says "Driver error" next to the speaker icon.

Poking around in device manager, I see this error:

"This device cannot start. (Code 10)
{Conflicting Address Range}
The specified address range conflicts with the address space."

The only references I find to this error online are for different (and quite old) version of windows, and seem unrelated to Bluetooth.

I can't even look at the "resources" tab because it appears to have vanished in Windows 10!

Is There A Need To Update Drivers For Clean Install

Jul 29, 2015

I'm planning to go from windows 8 to windows 10 after getting my first build, and I'm curious if I need to update my drivers before getting windows 10 or not. I know you put in the OS disc before any driver discs that came with your hardware so I don't know if I can just do a clean install of windows 10 and then get my drivers or not.

Drivers/Hardware :: No Sound At All Since Clean Install

Oct 17, 2015

Done the upgrade, then straight away done the clean install...very far, everything working a treat, but alas not a sound from my speakers, device manager shows my budget Asus Xonar DGX sound card is working properly, my light on speakers lights up...but nothing, I've had speakers since windows 95, really miss them now, especially after a super clean install. I know the speakers might be at fault, but how can I check them?, I haven't got another computer, tried them with my Toshiba satellite Equuim but the sound come through their built in system.

Drivers/Hardware :: No External HDD Or Touch Screen After Clean Install

Jan 1, 2016

I re-installed win10 on my ASUS Q302LA laptop after completely wiping the c: drive using Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu in order to delete the "Old windows" folder, which apparently can only be done from windows if you have god or "trusted user" status, whatever the hell that is. After installing over Ubuntu using win10 from an iso optical disk, the usb ports and device manager no longer register my seagate external hdd. Now this is scary because the seagate is a "backup" drive and now it's useless. It's still good and works fine with my hp elite so nothing's lost, but the idea that were I not to have a second computer my data would be unaccessible by the very products supposedly designed to keep it safe. The touchscreen feature is also non-functional. I'm not sure whether this is a win10 problem or an ASUS driver problem specific to this computer.

Drivers/Hardware :: Touchscreen Won't Work Anymore Since Clean Install?

Sep 5, 2015

Last time my wifi didnt work and eventually nothing, but I managed to do a clean install. Thereafter, with ASUSUTeK, I downloaded some drivers to bring back my internet.

So now I have internet and a fresh clean install, but my touchscreen(and sound too, but I want to focus on touchscreen first) wont work anymore at all. Also, the buttons like f5/f6 dont work anymore either

Things I already tried:
- Calibrating
- Looking in the Device Manager to update drivers.

The problem is, most websites say that I have to turn the ''HID compliant screen'' on and off, but I dont have that driver/thing at all in my device manager. I also cant find a download link on ASUS' drivers website to fix this.

Drivers/Hardware :: Sound Card Not Seen In 32 Bit Upgrade - Seen In 64 Bit Clean Install

Nov 4, 2015

After I upgraded from Win 8.1,

1. Ashampoo programs would not find my (Conexant SmartAudio 221) sound card - Ashampoo looking into this promising a fix after diagnostics - but for weeks now.

2. Audacity would not run beyond v 2.03 (which is reported by others on their forum).

That was 32 bits.

I tried a clean install, 64 bits, and to my surprise, no problem with Ashampoo progs or Audacity 2.1.1.

I'll be using my 32 bit installation whilst I slowly configure the 64 bit version for quite a while.

Other than clean booting, and trying to identify possible conflicts, is there any more specific area I could look at? I have quite a lot of multimedia programs installed.

Installation :: Media Creation Tool Fails?

Aug 3, 2015

My laptop was upgraded to Windows 10 two days ago but my desktop has not received the green light yet. I was reading that if you downloaded the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's web site that it had an option that would allow up to upgrade your PC or create an ISO install disk. I downloaded the app on my laptop and created an ISO disk as a backup in case I need to do a clean install on that platform but when I tried to run the app on my desktop it brings up the UAC prompt asking if I want to run this program and when I click Yes, nothing happens.

I read some thread somewhere that if you're having problems with this app you need to do a selective startup where you don't run any startups and you disable all of the services and after restarting, I tried this and after restarting my PC running the Media Creation app again failed to do anything .

If I run Windows Update it says I have no updates pending but it was interesting that every time I've run the Media Creation Tool it puts an entry in my update log that says the update failed. The fact is the upgrade has not failed in the normal sense only the Media Creation Tool failed.

My concern is that I have a reservation for the upgrade but that too might fail so I'd like to get my desktop upgraded to Windows 10 asap.

Computer seems to have wmp in C:Program Files (x86)Windows Media Player, but cannot run it as it is saying that it is not properly installed and needs to be reinstalled. Clicking on the link takes me here:

Installing OS Onto SSD - Media Driver Is Missing Error

Dec 5, 2015

I've just bought my first SSD and want to install windows 10 onto it. I used the media creation tool to install the OS onto a bootable USB but when I try to install the software onto my SSD I get an error. It reads:

"A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now."

I have tried hooking up my optical drive and inserting the disks that came with the motherboard and graphics card but it says it can't find any drivers. I'll attach an image below of the problem I'm facing.

Apps :: ITunes Fails To Install?

Aug 4, 2015

I am trying to install iTunes 12.2.1 on Windows 10 Pro. During installation I get two errors, I believe they are connected. I am running this as Administrator from a User account. I have also tried running it with Windows 7 compatibility checked, same result.

This is the first error:

The installation continues for a little bit, then it throws this error:

At this point the installation fails.

My brother is in an identical situation; both of us have identical machines, upgraded from Windows 7 (where iTunes worked) to Windows 10, did a system refresh, and encountered this problem. Installing either version 11 or 10.7 do not throw either of these errors, however upon launch, it said it was not installed properly and would need to be reinstalled.

Laptop Crashed / Boot Media Missing And BIOS Can't Detect Drive

Oct 6, 2015

My laptop suddenly crashed and now it says "Boot media missing" when I restarted. After that, it always takes me to "Preparing Automatic Repair" and then the 'Troubleshoot' menu.

In the 'Troubleshoot' menu, it has two options: 'Reset this PC' and 'Advanced options'.

When I choose "Reset this PC", it asks me whether to keep my files or remove everything. I've tried both and it displays an error. When I choose to keep my files, it says that drive is locked and tells me to unlock the drive and try again. When I choose to remove everything, it says that there is a problem resetting the PC.

And then I've moved to "Advanced options". The options are: System Restore, System Image Recovery, Startup Repair, Command Prompt, UEFI Firmware Settings, and Go back to previous build. I've tried all of these and it all returned an error. When I chose UEFI Settings, it restarted to BIOS/UEFI setting. And my BIOS/UEFI can't detect my hard drive. DISKPART from Command Prompt can't detect it either.

My project is due in 3 days and I've got all my files in there. Is there a way to fix this? Or to recover my files?

All Documents / Media And Desktop Missing - System32 Folder Couldn't Be Found

Mar 10, 2016

I have a huge issue with my desktop PC at the moment. Everything was fine when I was using my PC yesterday but upon startup today a system message appeared saying that the desktop file in the system32 folder couldn't be found and my desktop was a black screen with nothing but recycle bin(I did have lots of shortcuts and folders). Shorty after other applications such as Skype prompted me to locate the files or reinstall the software.

Using the recycle bin on the desktop i accessed the files(or lack thereof) to find all of the document, video, picture, ect. drives empty with strange string of random numbers and letters(looks like hexadecimal?) at the top where it would normally say "documents" or whatever. Whilst the documents are gone the C drive is perfectly intact with program files and other stuff. The start menu does not work either so I cannot access control panel or command prompt but "windows key + x" shortcuts still work.
To my knowledge I haven't installed any suspicious software as I am well versed enough in computers to not click any old pop up, in fact I do not remember installing anything. I can't access my PC specs as control panel cant be accessed but it is a vibox gaming pc and is on windows 10. I cannot access chrome or any internet browser on my PC.
