Trying to install Windows 7 on my new computer - Does anyone know someone within HP that would help?

I am trying to downgrade from Win 8.1 to Win 7 and so far I am not having any luck completing the downgrade.
(HP Envy 700-430qe).
                       As you can see, several in this forum have tried to help! 
                Does anyone know of a department within HP that would help? 
                      ( I tried HP tec support, but they will not touch it. They say "out of our scope")
I have completely wiped my 2 tb hard drive using Diskpart/clean all. I then installed my Win 7 disk directly on to
a formatted 100 gb partition on the drive, but as always, the installation goes almost 90 % of the way with no problem, then soon
after the reboot it stops at the same point as it does when I try a dual boot install or a downgrade install. Very very
frustrating. 
Thanks, Brad

Hi, Brad:
The only suggestion I can offer would be to try this...
Download the drivers from this link below (first file listed -- 64 bit).
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?​agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=23060&keyword=Intel+Rap...
Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders.
With the flash drive in a USB2 port and W7 installation media in the machine, boot from the W7 installation media.
After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option.
You should now see the storage driver files listed.
If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver.
Follow the prompts and hopefully, W7 will install.

    I am getting the message "The windows installer Service could not be accessed when trying to install Itunes on my new computer, any help would be appreciated.

    Hey there Frank0619,
    If you have not been able to install iTunes because the Windows Installer service is not available, I would recommend the troubleshooting in the following troubleshooting to help.
    Issues installing iTunes for Windows
    These in particular: 
    Make sure you have an administrator account.
    To install iTunes, you'll need to log in to your computer with an administrator password. If you're not sure if you have an administrator account, read Windows 7: How do I log on as an administrator? You could also refer to your computer's help system, contact your IT department, or visit support.microsoft.com for assistance.
    Install the latest Microsoft Windows updates.
    To download the latest updates, visit the Microsoft Windows Update website. iTunes for Windows requires Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 with the latest Service Pack installed. If you can’t install the updates, refer to your computer's help system, contact your IT department, or visit support.microsoft.com for assistance.
    Download the latest version of iTunes.
    The latest version of iTunes can be downloaded at http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/.
    Disable conflicting software.
    Some Windows background processes can cause issues for other programs and processes. These conflicts can prevent applications, such as iTunes, from installing. Disable conflicting processes by starting your computer using MSConfig: 
    Using Msconfig to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP
    Using Msconfig to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8
    Some security software made by other companies can't be disabled using MSConfig. If you've installed security software and you're having issues installing iTunes or QuickTime for Windows, you might need to disable or uninstall security software to resolve installation issues.
    Restart your computer.
    Install iTunes.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    All the best,
    Sterling

    Hello Miz C,
    As I said in answer to your other post, pressing "Yes" when iTunes brings up the dialogue window asking whether you want to replace the songs on your iPod with the songs in iTunes does exactly what it says. If you linked to an empty iTunes or one with only a few or completely different songs it will have erased your original iPod song list. Unless you have the original PC to connect back to the songs you had are gone. You could check out what data recovery programs are on offer but I have no experience of any to fully recommend.

    Old computer died and I am trying to install Illustrator CS5 on new computer.
    Last version I had before CS5 was/is Illustrator 10,which has been installed on new computer.
    CS5 install says I need CS2,3 or 4 before installing 5, but old computer went directly from 10 to CS5.
    How can I repeat this 10 to CS5 install?

    It does not seem likely that CS6 was upgraded from version 10.  You might want to check your purchase history in your Adobe account to see if there is some missing link in the chain of purchases you made.
    You can always try contacting Adobe support thru chat to see if they can find information or otherwise assist you in this matter.

    when you were install your cs3 you should have been prompted for you serial number.  were you?
    if not, you probably didn't properly install cs3.  copying/migrating/moving etc is problematic.
    if yes, did you see any error messages during installation?
    if yes, attach a screenshot of the error message.
    if not, check you install logs, Troubleshoot with install logs | CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC

    After I sync my ipod itunes is giving me the message that backup for my ipod cannot be saved on the computer does anyone know what I could do to fix this issue?

    Check out this Apple document -> iTunes: "Backup could not be saved on the computer" alert message
    To resolve this issue, delete the backup in iTunes Preferences and then create a new backup. If you would like to retain a copy of the backup, you can move the backup file to a different location. The backup is located in the locations below.
    On Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    \Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    To delete the backup file:
        Open iTunes Preferences by choosing iTunes > Preferences (Mac) or Edit > Preferences (Windows).
        Select Devices.
        Select the device backup to delete.
        Click Delete Backup. iTunes will ask if you are sure you want to delete the backup. Click Delete Backup.
        Click OK.
    To manually create a new backup, right-click (or Control-click) iPhone on the left side of the iTunes window under Devices and choose Back Up from the shortcut menu.

    Please help! We got a used Mac Mini and we don't have the former owner's password, so we can't install anything like flash player.  Does anyone know how to get around this? I don't know how to wipe the hard drive, and the support online doesn't seem to work.

    As posted previously:
    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    If installing Leopard the process is similar in some respects.  If you wish to begin anew then after selecting the target disk click on the Options button and select the Erase and Install option then click on the OK button.  To install over an existing system do the following:
    How to Perform an Archive and Install
    An Archive and Install will NOT erase your hard drive, but you must have sufficient free space for a second OS X installation which could be from 3-9 GBs depending upon the version of OS X and selected installation options. The free space requirement is over and above normal free space requirements which should be at least 6-10 GBs. Read all the linked references carefully before proceeding.
    1. Be sure to use Disk Utility first to repair the disk before performing the Archive and Install.
    Repairing the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Installer menu (Utilities menu for Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard.) After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list. In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive. If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer. Now restart normally.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Do not proceed with an Archive and Install if DU reports errors it cannot fix. In that case use Disk Warrior and/or TechTool Pro to repair the hard drive. If neither can repair the drive, then you will have to erase the drive and reinstall from scratch.
    3. Boot from your OS X Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When you reach the screen to select a destination drive click once on the destination drive then click on the Option button. Select the Archive and Install option. You have an option to preserve users and network preferences. Only select this option if you are sure you have no corrupted files in your user accounts. Otherwise leave this option unchecked. Click on the OK button and continue with the OS X Installation.
    4. Upon completion of the Archive and Install you will have a Previous System Folder in the root directory. You should retain the PSF until you are sure you do not need to manually transfer any items from the PSF to your newly installed system.
    5. After moving any items you want to keep from the PSF you should delete it. You can back it up if you prefer, but you must delete it from the hard drive.
    6. You can now download a Combo Updater directly from Apple's download site to update your new system to the desired version as well as install any security or other updates. You can also do this using Software Update.

    You can't buy the part from Creative as a spare.
    I'm not sure how compatible other parts might be, but that would be a question for someone who really knows a lot about this area of electronics.
    The Creative repair for this is likely to be expensi've, but the problem is most likely a broken solder connection than an actual new headphone socket. So if you know someone experienced in surface mount soldering you could probably get it repaired just with this.

  • Im having troubles importing my photos from my iPhone to my mac iPhoto because they're not in my camera roll. It;s saying they're in my 'mac events' but my computer isn't recognizing it. Does anyone know what to do? please help.

    I just got a new macbook and before i had to sync all my photos from my old mac onto a bunch of flash drives and most are on my phone. Ive successfully imported the flash drives and the photos on my camera roll to my new macbook iPhoto but not the other 1,000+. My computer isn't recognizing it maybe because its in 'mac events'. Does anyone know what to do? Please help it would be greatly appreciated especially since i don't have much room left on my iphone anymore. thank you.

    You'll need third party software to get the images not on your camera roll. iExplorer is one such app, but there are others. Search on MacUpdate
