I tried the commands and after pressing 'y' I got this message - "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

A.K Singh said...

its may be because you are currently running windows os,you will have to same steps as described above, because its not getting Admin access & its currently in read only mode so,try above steps.

Brian Lomas said...

Everything works fine until I get to RebuildBCD. previously I was shown the option of Yes, No or All, pressing Y had no effect the when I pressed enter I received an error message (can't remember which one but basically the operation hadn't been successful). I tried again and now at the same point I receive the following message "Total Identified Windows installations:0
The operation completed successfully"
List volume shows 2 x healthy partitions.
I'm not sure what else to do, I've just been going round in circles for hours.

A.Kr. Singh said...

Well according to your comment,total identified window is 0,mean it dint found any window there,

Chk using diskpart if it shows any disk attached ,if yes then try again all steps ,& yeah using diskpart try to attach disk then try steps if it doesnt shows up reply will try solve & do reply diakpart error if u find any.

anonymous sabry said...

I had same screen shots above and I did commands but nothing change

A.Kr. Singh said...

You must be missing some steps,chk again everything.and any error u got there?

James Snow said...

I did this bc after the steps it said 0 window installations but it completed it successfully. Then after I typed the disk part and list volumes I found that there is disk 0 online 74gb 1024 free then on list volume 1 ltr c: PRIMARY FAT32 partition 74Gb Healthy and I was going to just install version 8.1 but my windows key code is for 7 which came on the darn thing so what do i do?

A.Kr. Singh said...

ohkk,so u have win 7 product key,why dont u install win only? and then upgrade your pc to win 8 or win 10,then you wont need key for 8 or 10 i guess.
