Thanks!

 

I gave it a go but when running the script I got a runtime error: Object not a collection

 

I'm not sure what that means or if I've done something wrong!

I would try running the script again from scratch, if still no joy you may need to live with the message i`m afraid as the only other fix I have found is a clean install of Windows 7 from either an ISO or full retail disk as opposed to your OEM disk  :(

Thanks for all your help and suggestions, I managed to get the script to run but it didn't resolve the issue. I'll have to set some time aside to do the clean install..

 

Would you be able to suggest the best method for a clean install for an SSD? Why would my disk not be the best?

 

Would the clean install mean having to reinstall everything including my programs on my E drive? (Steam mainly..)

 

Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Hello SophieMayk,

 

"Win32_Processor" is what is shown to be the cause of the error message.

 

A long shot that may work is running the Microsoft Find and fix problems with devices and hardware tool here

 

If no joy, to address things more clearly I will break the rest of my reply down into bite size chunks;

 

Would you be able to suggest the best method for a clean install for an SSD? Why would my disk not be the best?

 

 

Honest answer is that as Microsoft say that the error message can be safely ignored I would learn to live with it and for the following reasons;

 

A clean install may not resolve the issue and could actually make things worse for you by your product key being rejected by Microsoft, the Windows 7 DVD that you purchased is apparently for Dell computers which in itself could explain the error message, please read the feedback here where you can see for yourself the problems folk have encountered, error codes popping up and more predominantly product keys being rejected.

 

Microsoft explanation for the error message here;

 

 
Cause
This originated in the Windows 7 SP1 DVD/ISO creation process. There was an issue in the creation process that caused a WMI registration to remain in the DVD/ISO. Since the registration is designed to work only during the DVD/ISO creation process, it fails to run on a live system and causes these events. These events are not indicative of any issue in the system and can be safely ignored. If however you want to prevent these events from getting generated and want to remove this specific WMI registration manually, please follow the steps mentioned in this article for running the workaround script.

 

 

 

 

Microsoft More information;

This particular Event ID 10 error message listed above can be safely ignored, this is not indicative of a problem with the Service Pack or with the operating system.

 

 
 
The Windows AIO tool includes a fix for the WMI error concerned but that did not work and neither did running the vbs script provided by Microsoft so not sure what if anything else can be safely suggested.
 
Can`t for the life of me find the exact post that I came across regarding the same issue after a person used the same type of Windows 7 media purchased on Amazon, the whole Google info below;
 
 
Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit (Full ...
SP1 is not properly integrated. If you install it from DVD with SP1 integrated you will have this error in Event Log after each reboot: Log Name - Application

 

 
 
 
Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

 

 

You too and hopefully a healthy and prosperous New Year ahead for you.
 
NB: Not sure that a Repair installation with a suspect Dell DVD will resolve the issue btw FreeBooter.

I wish I'd known about the DVD before purchasing, although it says it's from Microsoft so I just assumed at the time it was what I needed. I had to get a new license when I bought my new motherboard and sadly it seems I purchased the wrong thing! That explains why I get the compatibility error when trying to run the repair with the disk.

 

I ran the device and hardware fix, it found issues but sadly none of them were resolved, they're hardware problems I've always had. (My on-board ethernet controller apparently doesn't have drivers and a microsoft teredo tunneling adapter problem which seems to be very common.)

 

I'll put up with the error, as you've said it doesn't seem to cause any harm. I just have a slight OCD that I know it's not 100% perfect and I have a desire to fix it. I'll just have to show my family members how to boot up my PC so they don't let it run the automatic startup repairs.

 

I really appreciate the time you've given to help me, it seems you've researched into it far more than I would know how to. I'm sure I've not done a restore before with this disk so I wouldn't like to take the risk at the moment..

 

Thank you!

Don`t worry, you are but one of many that have purchased such a disk genuinely believing that they are supplied by Microsoft, basically it is a play on words and the sellers only tell you the bare minimum, the core OS is provided by Microsoft but what the sellers of these type of disks do not bang on so loudly about is the fact that the disk concerned was intended for use with an end of line OEM brand name computer that was scrapped before being sold, these computers were purchased in their thousands for peanuts with the sole intention of getting the Windows product keys which take up very little storage space but return a tidy profit.

 

Yourself and Amazon have not done anything untoward btw and technically neither has the seller of the disk that you purchased, something to keep in mind though, genuine Microsoft Windows 7 media on disk (even used) has been rarer than hens teeth for years and when it was available it cost in excess of £100 going back years ago even for the upgrade and Starter versions.

 

Wise decision to leave as is IMO  :yes:

 

You are most welcome btw  :)
