    I wanted to install Windows 7 in my system and when I try to load it up from the Windows 7 DVD it just gives the error code 0xC00000E9. What does it mean? Why I am getting this error? Is there anyway I can resolve this problem in my system and install the Windows 7?

    Firstly you need to backup all the important data on the computer prior to performing this operation.
    Run System restore from Windows Recovery and check if it helps:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...s-in-Windows-7
    Also run the Check disk in Windows Recovery mode by opening Command prompt from Windows Recovery Mode
    Type C: and press enter. On C:\ prompt type chkdsk /r and press enter.
    Hope this will help you!!

    his error is sometimes an indication that the hard drive may be failing. Complete the following steps to check the integrity of your hard drive. If you are unable to get to the Advanced Boot Option menu using the F8 key, you will need to obtain a Windows Vista disc.

    1. Restart your computer, tapping on the F8 button until you reach the Advanced Boot Options menu.

    2. Select Safe Mode with command prompt.

    3. Type "chkdsk /r" (there is a space between k and /)

    It is not clear wheather you are installing fresh Windows 7 or upgrading the system.
    if it is upgrade which is your operating system.

    Anyway, heres some general troubleshoot.

    Run a disk check scanner tool, like the windows own chkdsk utility, you may use a third party software too.

    Clean the Optical Drive , use a disk cleaner for the job.

    Clean the windows 7 installer disk , use a damp cloth for that.

    Run disk defragmenter for disk space and file management if you already have windows version installed.

    If there is still the error message contact the Windows 7 seller and take his advice on changing the disk.

    Hi, Dear friend

    Generally the above error .... will be appeared whenever the Boot media fails

    So, first of all check whether the Windows 7 DVD working properly or not

    and when the Disk index corruption cases... also the PC does not recognize the boot ... .. in that case also the above .... appears....

    and in case of Improper boot selection cases also the above error appears

    however, follow this procedure to check again ... if it helps

    inert the Windows 7 DVD in to the ROM and press Delete key at the start UP

    then choose BOOT menu by using the navigation keys....and select the Boot Option

    now press F10 key to save the settings and choose OK option and press ENTER key

    then your PC restarts automatically.....and now press ENTER key ....to Boot From DVD .

    and after that follow the General Procedure ...and install the windows 7 OS


    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    you didnt mention what OS you have previously, and also the configuration of your system.
    if your system is not compatible with windows 7 you may get this kind of error.
    you can solve this problem by upgrading your system's hardware.

    otherwise backup your data and wipe out your entire hard disk.
    Once it is done, install the OS
