MultiTouch issue with Ubuntu and EliteBook Folio 1020

Q: MultiTouch issue with Ubuntu and EliteBook Folio 1020

Dear community, I recently bought a brand new HP EliteBook Folio 1020 because it's officially given as supported by Ubuntu OS. So after installing this system, I discovered that the Alps Forcepad is not fully supported by Linux. Basically, the mouse and click is working, but MultiTouch features are not working at all. I mean that my old EliteBook 8460p supported the two finger scrolling perfectly with the Synqptics drivers, but unfortunately, this is not the case for this new computer. After some research, the problem comes from the psmouse module, the touchpad is detected as a generic PS2 mouse. some Google research give me some third party project to give better support for Alps device like https://github.com/he1per/psmouse-dkms-alpsv7, and while the modules seems to be compiled corrected and then finally detected as a Alps device, the multitouch feature still not working. Is there any patch for psmouse that can be provided in order to support the muti touch feature, at last the two fingers scrolling, this is the minimum for having a decent usage of the applications. Thank for your help and best regards Obitwo.

A: MultiTouch issue with Ubuntu and EliteBook Folio 1020

That git project you're trying to build is for an old Linux Kernel (3.13). Firstly it will not build with any recent kernels becuase the source functions/logic have changed too much.In Linux 3.18 support for Forcepad was added in the drivers/input/mouse/synaptics.c file. But this supports the HP 1040 Forcepad. The HP 1020 uses another (perhaps newer) model of Forcepad. I too am desperately looking for a solution..

Hi I got a brand new Elitebook Folio 1020 G1 - I would like to use the TPM 2.0 that it is advertised with. According to the specification it has an Intel Firmware TPM 2.0. But I don't seem to be able to enable it. The BIOS only gives me an option to enable/disable a TPM, but it seems to only be the hardware Infineon TPM 1.2. Can anyone let me know how I can enable the TPM 2.0 on the Elitebook?

A:TPM 2.0 on Elitebook Folio 1020 G1

Firmware TPM is version 2.0. Hardware TPM is v1.2, which is a subset of the TPM 2.0 specification version v0.89as implemented by Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT).For more information on HP security solutions refer to: http://www.hp.com/go/clientsecurity.

Hello, on the German HP website, it's possible to order the new Folio 1020 with Skylake processor.  My question: I'm currently in Germany so I am thinking of ordering it, but I would like to know if HP will provide additional models: Currently, only these models are on offer:- 4k touch with 6y75- FHD antiglare with 6y54 I.e, there is NO 4k antiglare, and there is also NO antiglare with 6y75. I prefer 6y75 with antiglare, and if possible 4k antiglare.  I would like to know if HP plan to release a 4k antiglare version, and also if there will be 6y75 models with antiglare (be it FHD or 4k). Should you not know of any such plans, I would like to ask you to forward to the developers of this model that there surely is a demand for m7 antiglare models, and presumably also a 4k version. Thank you!

Is there anywhere to get a recovery image of the originally installed Ubuntu?  I did a fresh install of 16.04, and the touchpad no longer works correctly, and I installed the "normal" 14.04 and it doesn't work there either, so I'm guessing this had some addon drivers that aren't part of the normal Ubuntu.  The download section for the 1020 G1 doesn't even LIST Ubuntu as an OS option. Alternately, assuming the addons were in a ppa, if there was somewhere I could download those drivers alone for 14.04?

I now want to connect a second monitor (another ProDisplay P221) to my laptop. What are my options? I don't want to buy a full docking station. I read somewhere that a VGA splitter cable would not be useful as it simply duplicates the same display as one sees on the first monitor. I have an HDMI port available on my laptop. Can I use this port with an HDMI to VGA cable and connect the HDMI-to-VGA output to the second monitor? Will this give me a continuous (and NOT a duplicate display)?Thank you for your help.

Hello, the EliteBook Folio G1 (2016) allows the choice between MS Precision and GlidePoint. The problem described below occurs on both driver versions. (Please also note that I have configured *all* settings (on all 3 locations where mouse settings can be configured), and I did so in a way that rules out that the problem is a result of misconfiguration. Bios, Windows and Touchpad drivers are up-to-date.) Problem: When I try to move the cursor just a little bit (which is a very frequent action in everyday computer usage in general (e.g. cursor positiong, checkboxes), and with certain applications (imaging) in particular), there is no response until I have moved my finger over the touchoad a few millimeters (!). This is very annoyng -- it is impossible to do precise operations. In particular, no such issues exist on my other notebooks. I guess it's some kind of protection so no movements are done when accidental touching the touchpad. However, unlike the "prevent-movement after typing"- option, there is no user-visible setting that would allow the user to disable this annoyance. I am actually considering sending the computer back. It is ironic because this is anything but "Precision". (All the other features and behavior of the touchpad are quite good, btw).  Request: Please forward this problem to your developlemt/software team so they can check whether this can be changed, and then please provide new drivers/etc. They should check wheth...

In order to generate this BIN file they will need your serial number, product number, UUID, etc... found in the startup menu (F1) .  Hope this helps. Let me know if you face any issues.

Although if could be a h/w issue, you mention the touchpad works within the BIOS to point around the menus. I would encourage you to run HP SDM (www.hp.com/go/sdm) and update all hardware drivers and BIOS (BIOS needs to be done by itself). That should help with your issue.  Do not install any other software suggested by SDM unless you know you use that particular tool

In 2006 Lenovo started using the term ?multitouch? to mean touchscreen via finger and pen, then the iPhone came along and gave it a different common meaning: two-finger touch.
 
It?s important to understand this, because, in September 2009, Lenovo introduced new touch screens which support ?multitouch? in the now common sense: two finger touch. This did not and cannot magically give two-finger touch capability to the previously released touchscreen via finger and pen tablets.
 
So Lenovo have bowed to the inevitable and started using the common meaning of ?multitouch?, but be careful out there, because NONE of the ?multitouch? tablets introduced prior to September 2009 have two-finger touch!
 
Check the Personal Systems Reference tabook if you are unsure. In the display section you will see:
 
MultiTouch (touchscreen via finger and pen) <-- NO two-finger touch capability
OR
MultiTouch (touchscreen support pen & two-finger touch)
 
Lastly, Lenovo's marketing materials refer to the new two-finger touch feature as "enhanced multitouch".
 
March 2010 UPDATE: With the release of the X201 Tablet, the nomenclature has become simpler!
If an X201 tablet is multitouch, it  is two-finger multitouch. There are no single-touch pen or finger X201 tablets.
 
April 2011 UPDATE: The X220 Tablet has two screen options: multitouch or outdoor. The multitouch screen supports 2 finger touch and 5 finger gesture. The outdoor screen su... Read more

I've had this issue on both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 after I did the free upgrade. When I first got the laptop (used) it said battery 1 was plugged in and charging, but after a few days it changed to "Battery 1: This battery is not available for use" and "Battery 2: Plugged in and charging." Sometimes the charge level hovers around 98% and it says it's plugged in but not charging. The battery itself seems to charge fine and it works without the charger in too. It probably means nothing and is just a simple software error but I'd like to sort it out all the same. Thanks

We recently started purchasing Elitebook 820 G1 laptops for staff and have come across a sleep issue that is being reported by most users that have these laptops. The issue is that the laptops at random times do not resume from sleep mode. Sometimes the users will close the lid on the laptop to head to a meeting on a different floor. When they get there and open the lid and press on the power button the laptop will not resume from sleep. The laptop's power button, wireless button, and speaker button are all lit up solid. Pressing the keyboard will light up all the keyboard's backlights. However, regardless of what one tries to do nothing will get the laptop to resume from sleep mode. Pressing the power button, closing and opening the lid, pressing the keyboard, pressing the touchpad, etc, nothing works in getting the laptop out of sleep mode. We end up having to hold down the power button for several seconds to fully power off the laptop and force a BIOS power cycle. We have also experienced the problem while the laptop is docked to the HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking Station. We have applied the following HP drivers to all these laptops which has not resolved the issue.sp68391 Video driver Version: 3621 Rev.

A:hp elitebook 8440p memory upgrade issue

I cannot say for 100% sure, but yes, I think the number of memory chips on the board can indicate density. The symptoms you have described indicate a density issue to a "T." The memory shows up fine in the BIOS, but the PC refuses to work with it. I have suggested this cause to several others and when they purchased the lower density memory with 16 chips on the board, their problem was solved.

Hi All,  I have an EliteBook 840 G1 with a docking station. When I have the laptop connected to the docking station the network is fine.  If I leave the laptop connected to the docking station, turn the laptop off and then undock it, and then turn it back on, once the laptop has logged on, it runs incredibly slow, and the CPU has a 100% usage. If I then reconnect it to the docking station or connect a wired network connection to it, it suddenly starts working normally again and CPU usage drops to a normal amount of usage.  So it's a wired network issue. Can I fix this? No I don't seem to be able to.  I can only find A temporary fix, which is to uncheck LAN/WLAN switching. This is not ideal as we need to switch to LAN when docked to access certain shared drives. Things I have tried:  Updating Network driversUpdating Docking station driversUpdating BIOsUninstalling Network drivers and reinstalling them Disabling network card and re-enabling it Updating the Windows 7 image Turning LAN/WLAN switching on and off (restarting in between)Updating Various other drivers that were long shots at fixing the issue.  Any ideas? other than turning off LAN/WLAN switching?

Hi, We have the Elitebook 1040 G3 and UltraSlim Dock using Windows 7. I am using 2 HP Compaq LA2205wg monitors that one monitor is connected to VGA and the other Monitor is connected to DVI that is connected to a StarTech display port. Display Adapters: Intel(R) HD Graphics 520.The firmware of the Docking station: 2.30 which is most current firmware. After imaging the laptop and we dock the laptop on UltaSlim Docking station you only get the one monitor which is the monitor that is connected by VGA. The DVI/Display port acts like it is not connected to a monitor or anything. When you go to Control Panel > Display > Change Display setting > you see that the laptop is set to mirror what the 1st Monitor has, then on the second monitor if you look at "Multiple displays" you see that it says "Disconnect the display".  When I change it to  "Extend desktop to this display" Then hit Apply and yes, I get all 2 Monitors working which is good, I can restart/shutdown the laptop and I will get 2 monitors. This is not something we want to do every time I dock my laptop. The next problem that relates to the problem above is when we undock the laptop and it falls asleep for 20 minutes or more we come back to the first problem which is when we dock the laptop to turn it on the lid open or close it still only displays one monitor which is the VGA. We have tried numerous number of things and everything that we have tried doesnt seem to be working so i...

Sorry, I can't help fix your issue, but I wanted to let you know that you are not alone!  We have 7 Elitebook 840 G3's wth Windows 10 on the 2013 UltraSlim Dock as well, and they are all doing the same thing.  Both external displays will go black for a few seconds periodically throughout the day.   We are using HP EliteDisplay E242 displays for all except one user, who has ASUS displays, and they all have the same issue, so the display itself does not appear to be the issue. The VGA port seems to work fine, so this points to the Display Ports/driver being the issue.  I have tried all available driver updates, but nothing has resolved the issue. We are looking for a solution to this issue as well.

I'm not sure whats wrong with it, it doesn't seem to be driver problems because the touchpad works apart from that. If it's a case of i need some files from the orignal windows.old file there is no problems with that, but im not sure what files i'll need so could someone guide me onto how to resolve this issue?

I have an Elan Smart Pad and I'm not too impressed with the how their software makes use of its multitouch capability. Right now I have the 2 and 3-finger taps set to show the desktop. I'd really like to be able to set one of them to bring up Flip3d or switch between windows.

I was looking for ways to set that up and I came across an old procedure that has something to do with finding the .dll for Flip3d and writing a command to use it and then setting the touchpad to run that command. I feel like there has to be a better way though.

Would installing a Synaptics driver and their gesture suite on an Elan touchpad work? I saw that they have a much better array of uses for multitouch.

Thanks!

Hi there, I have been having difficulty in getting a second monitor to work with Ubuntu, and was hoping someone with better skills than me has found a fix for it. I'm running a Lenovo P50, Xeon E3-1505v5, 64Gb RAM, 4Gb Quadro M2000M as a dual boot Windows 10/Ubuntu 16.04 workstation. Windows detects the second monitor both using HDMI and with a displaylink-compatible USB dock. In Ubuntu, plugging a second monitor directly into the HDMI port doesn't seem to get recognized. Using a monitor through a USB dock (with latest Ubuntu displaylink driver; 1.1.62) also doesn't get recognized, despite the fact that if I runsytemctl status displaylink.serviceit states the service is active. I'm guessing this is an issue with the dual graphics set up on the machine, although there's enough Skylake processors out there now that I don't think this kind of set up is too unusual. According to the 'overview' window (under "system settings", "details") in Ubuntu, I'm using the Intel P530 graphics (integrated on the skylake processor) rather than the Nvidia, although running:lspci | grep VGAdisplays both cards:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 191d (rev 06)

Hello , this is my first time posting on forum, ever! I got a problem with my acer v3-572g model. I currently use win8.1 and I have tried to uninstall drivers and install official acer drivers for touchpad. so far , there are two drivers and I have tried them both, none of them helped. On other forums I have seen that some people managed to solve a problem by instaling new BIOS drivers. Im not yet ready to install new BIOS drivers because of fear to make it even worse. Many users solved it just by reinstalling synahptics(I probably spelled it wrong lel) drivers.Some people also managed to fix it by updating IO chipset drivers, which again I am feared to try to reinstall it. Im prone to breaking things and messing up stuff, so if you got idea how to simply fix this , I will be really thankfull to you. I have to mentioin , whenever I try to uninstall drivers and ask me to reboot , after reboot its somehow already installed again. If you got any questions , I will do my best to answer it.

Ok, so here's the deal.

A while ago I decided to try out Ubuntu on my RAID JBOD computer setup, but unfortunately Ubuntu 8.10 or 8.04 would not even start up, it would just sit in command prompt waiting for an input from me, but of course, I'm no expert in such things (something about "raminitfs" and it would just sit there waiting for me to type something, but even after typing "help" I am still lost). So after a good hour looking at other forums with no success, I decided to take Ubuntu off. But see, here's some tricky stuff:

When I installed both Ubuntu versions, instead of creating a partition, I chose to install it right in Windows as an APPLICATION, saying that it might decrease disk performance, but no biggie.

I uninstalled both versions as I would with a regular application: Default programs > Programs > Uninstall

The problem here is the following: every time I boot up, I come up to the Windows Vista boot manager screen, and gives me the following options:

Windows Vista
Ubuntu
Ubuntu

But the problem is, I already uninstalled both Ubuntu versions!

I already tried using the repair method on my Vista DVD, as well as the bootrec/fixboot and bootrec/fixmbr command methods, but they didn't do anything. The options are still appearing every time I boot. I figured an alternative would be to go into Advanced Settings through Computer>Properties and then check off the time to display multiple OSes option, but it still gripes me that the Ubunt...

I got an old computer from a friend that wasn't using it anymore. Right now it has Windows XP, and I want to install Ubuntu on it, but pushing any of the listed buttons on start up results in the screen going black and not responding to anything for at least a whole day (at which point I gave up and turned it off). It's an HP Compaq d220 MT and comes up and says <[TAB] to post screen> <F9 = Boot Menu> <F10 = Setup> <F12 = Network Service Boot>. My friend already got all the info off the computer he needs, I got new RAM for it as he wanted to keep what was in it, and almost everything works fine. Unfortunately, he has nothing that came with the computer, no cds, manuals, or anything, and he can't even remember the administrator password. I have a boot cd for the Ubuntu version I've read will work on this computer, but I can't for the life of me figure out what to try next.

Windows has made me a chain smoker.

To begin I dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.10 on a custom built computer. I use a Belkin Basic Wireless Adapter FD71101 v1 to connect to my wireless networks.

I'll have my system specs in a post below since I have to post in Ubuntu and have to switch between operating systems.

This is the situation I'm facing:

Abound 4 to 5 days ago I started noticing a significant decrease in my internet bandwidth speed while using Windows 7. I thought nothing of it since I live with 4 other roommates and I figured they were watching Netflix, downloading, gaming, etc.

Soon after that my connection dropped entirely although all my roommates, my Android phone, and Ubuntu could connect to the network we have. It seemed I was the only one having this problem. I would also like to say my roommates use everything from Windows 7, Mac OS X, Windows Vista, iOS, and Android OS.

My first instinct was to reboot computer, unplug wireless adapter/plug back in, update latest drivers for wireless adapter. The next step should have been to reboot the modem and router, unfortunately we pay for internet through our landlord and I had no access to the router until the weekend was over.

So I repeated the previous steps, and added in removing my settings for the network and re-applying those settings, removing them again and then trying to connect letting it set itself up. No luck.

Before this I had planned to re-install Windows 7 so I went ahead an... Read more

Wlecome to the "Grub error club" as well as the Se7enforums! RyanfromtheShhiir

That's what the repair tools section on the 7 dvd are for correcting mbr entries and other things preventing Windows from a normal startup! In your case you have to load the 7 installer again from the usb source(external hard drive, usb key) that you used to see 7 installed for this.

Right when the installer finishes loading to the point where you select the language and location and you move on to the next screen for the "Install Now" button look down below that for the repair tools link. That will then go through the detection process for the installation you have on and bring you to a menu of options where you then simply click on the Startup Repair. Startup Repair

And after that, I have had troubles with calibrating the Monitor....When I enter the Calibrating Section, and hit Calibrate, I am not able to prese the Cross in the Top Left corner of the Monitor....I have updated with the latest drivers, and the Monitor is set to Primary....Hope someone can help me with this issue.....
 

A:Cannot calibrate my new Acer T231H multitouch screen

Try uninstalling the driver and letting Windows install it's generic driver to see if that changes anything. If it does, then you'll know it's a driver problem. Also look into your video card drivers and update as nec. - something has an incompatibility issue. I never use software that comes with monitors if I can avoid it, because of issues like yours.

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased an Aspire S7-392 (the core i5 version). I love the laptop itself but did not love Acer's OEM version of Windows 8, so I installed a clean, retail version of Windows 8 (which was quite a task itself and I got LOTS of help from this forum). This, of course, meant reinstalling hardware drivers.

I used drivers directly from Acer's support page for my model. For some reason, the page lists TWO touchpad drivers: one from Synaptics and one from Elantech. Since the S7-392 has a Synaptics touchpad, a Synaptics driver seemed to be the correct decision. Unfortunately, when I installed the driver, I found NO settings for multitouch, pinch-to-zoom, etc. Starting from the taskbar, if I click Synaptics Pointing Device > Pointing Device Properties > Device Settings tab (with Synaptics logo) > Settings (for Standard Pointing Device on PS2/2 Port), I only see settings options for my right- and left-click buttons.

I have tried using the generic driver from the Synaptics website, but got the same result. If I install the Elantech driver from Acer's site I am able to control all multitouch features through their GUI but the touchpad is a little finicky (often, if I hold down a finger on the touchpad, the mouse pointer on the screen will jump around crazily-- not what I expect from such a pricey laptop).

I would love to use Synaptics drivers with my Synaptics hardware, but I really love my multitouch, especially for scrolling. Anyone have a similar ex... Read more

A:Aspire S7-392 Touchpad Driver Issues - No multitouch, etc

On my ASUS laptop my touch pad worked right from the start but to get the scroll to work along with the other multi touch features I had to install the Smart Gesture utility. Acer may have something similar that installs on top of the standard driver.

Hi there folks,

Please bear with me, this is a bit long..

I want to have system with 2 OSes as named in the subject line. This is what I did to go about having that,

Its a new HDD (500 GB) partitioned as follows, 100 GB (for Windows 7), then 265 GB (Data) and then 100 GB again (For Ubuntu 14.04). I installed Windows and then installed Ubuntu on the respective partitions as mentioned.

Upon booting the system the grub screen appeared and could load Ubuntu but the Windows wouldn't. The windows loader threw the error as follows,

Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The boot selection failed because the required device is inaccessible

and also advised a startup repair.

I tried to do that using a bootable USB (DVD drive does not work) in vain. Choosing the Startup Repair option here took me to a screen where "Windows 7" OS is listed with "0 MB" Partition Size and "(Unknown) Local Disk" Location. Followed by a message, (I'm para phrasing here) the startup repair cannot fix the problem, send the error to Microsoft.

Then I read on the interwebs somewhere, to use the command line entity and run the 2 commands,
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /fixmbr

Both of which were successful and upon booting it went back to the Windows loader now, with the same error and Ubuntu is not accessible at all.

So I have reinstalled the Windows on the same partition (the "head" 100 GB). My windows loader shows 2 instances of Windows 7 during... Read more

I've only just started using the above router and can't seem to get an internet connection with it.
I've got the above router plugged in via enthernet into my Acer revo rl70. In the status bar I can see the 'radar' icon that normally comes up when I'm connected to the internet.
Problem is though whenever I try to access a site in a browser e.g. bbc.co.uk, I get the 'Serve not found' page. I have no idea why I can't connect to the internet and have no idea where to start to try to resolve the issue.
Also, even thought the router is harwired into my cablemodem, whenever I type 192.168.1.1 in my browswe rto access the router admin stuff I get 'Server not found'.
anyone help?
thanks,

I just updated my t460s and multitouch on the trackpad stopped working! I checked task manager and the Synaptics Pointer Enhancer is still running... honestly not sure if that's what I'm looking for. Obviously it was working just fine before I updated Windows so I don't imagine this being a Lenovo problem but I'm just wondering if anyone has this issue or has a fix, thanks! Edit: For whatever reason Windows disabled multitouch functions. That's weird. It's in device settings if anyone ends up having this issue.

This might sound like I am a complete moron, but its an issue that is very tiring.

Last night my computers sound was working fine, came online this morning to find the headphones wont be recognized. Only time this crap elitebook decides the headphones are "ready" (for use I guess) is when they are either plugged into a jack that
has absolutely nothing to do with the performance of the sound, or if the headphones aren't plugged in at all.

Now I am sure you're all prolly thinking "if it works in one jack but not the other, then its simple as keep in it the jack that works moron" its not this simple I assure you. As I stated before, the jack that seems to recognize the headphones
actually being plugged in is worthless since ever since I bought this POS laptop or notebook that jack has done nothing for any sound device, internal or external, whatsoever. I am actually dumbfounded as to why they even installed it in the first place.

Now I have done virus checks, found nothing, I have rebooted the comp to an earlier time, it fails to fix this and even formatted the comp using the safe mode options but nothing seems to get this crap windows 7 to allow elitebook to recognize the headphones
when actually plugged into the port they are meant for.

And yea i know, why don't i use the on board speakers? well its a simple fact of I live with roommates, and so cannot play the sound openly with them here. So I am sorta irritated this comp wont recognize t... Read more

Acer Desktop PC Model: AM1610
sis ethernet adapter
webstar dpx 2000 series cable modem

After setting up a dual boot system successfully,
Vista connects to internet via ethernet, Ubuntu does not.

sis ethernet driver is updated to latest version

I can access the internet from Ubuntu however, after shutting down the pc, unplugging the power cord, removing the cmos battery and reinstalling. I reinsert the power cord and boot up as normal into Ubuntu, and have full access to internet.

Simply removing/reinserting ethernet cord, removing/reinserting pc or cable modem power cord, or resetting cable modem, does not work.

I am asking if there is a solution as to where I can log off Vista and restart pc into Ubuntu and have internet access automatically, bypassing all these steps I've explained?

After perusing multiple forums where people have described similar if not same issues, I've yet to find a solution to this.

I ran ipconfig in Vista and have the results. I ran ifconfig in Ubuntu 9.10 and have the results.

As these results may contain information that can present a vulnerability regarding system/ip identification, I have omitted them here.

If needed, I will respond via personal message with the contents.

A long title indeed, but it pretty much sums it all up. I have installed Ubuntu first and then dual booted windows XP. I soon found out that the fact Ubuntu wasn't compatible with many programs (even through wine) I wanted only Windows XP on my pc.
I've searched many topics, but all described how to uninstall Ubuntu when Windows was the primary OS. In my case Ubuntu is the main OS and it dual boots with Windows and I want to rid myself of Ubuntu leaving only Windows.

What do I need to do to get the desired computer setup? Or is it irrelevant which OS was installed first and will a guide describing how to remove Ubuntu from windows work as well for my case.

To fix this you'll have to boot off the XP install disk and boot to the recovery console, once there type 'fixmbr' without the '

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Mini 110-1116NR, then deleted the partitions that had Ubuntu on them, not knowing that Ubuntu comes with GRUB2, and sets itself as the default boot for that system. Now that GRUB2 is not installed, since it was on my only HDD, it looks for the GRUB2 partition, which does not exist, so I get an error on a command script that shows as follows:

"GRUB -error:no such partition
"grub rescue>

I still have Ubuntu on a flash drive. And I have my sister's computer to use until I get mine fixed, so I need help. I downloaded the Win7 Recovery Disc, but I don't have a program that can write the ISO image file to a USB flash drive, so I need to know how to get the ISO on the USB Drive, or how to fix the boot for Win7. I'm willing to do anything. lol. I've already done a couple hours worth of 'Google-ing' for how to fix this error and have come empty-handed. Please help.

And if this information helps, I have a Volume (D:\) with the recovery files on my hard drive.

Not including the MIR; what did i get for my extra ~150$?

DV7 1020US has P7350 - 1066MHz FSB w/ 3MB L2 Cache.
DV7 1170US has T5800 - 800MHz FSB w/ 2MB L2 cache.

I have a Lenovo X220 with a samsung msata ssd installed as the main drive. This drive has Win7 installed on it.
I was "trying" Ubuntu on a USB drive and apparently I screwed up my Win7 install because now Win7 will no longer boot(sticks at the starting windows screen). I used the boot-repair in Ubuntu(no idea why I did this) and this may have been the culprit(not positive though).

I have tried doing system repair with an installation disk and a repair disk made from another win7 x64 OS and I always get an error message saying: This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair...."

I'm fairly certain my broken win7 is EFI and the other is not, so maybe that is the reason? Is there somewhere I can find a EFI repair disk?

I have accessed all of my files through Ubuntu, but I would prefer not re-installing everything if there is a way to fix this Win7 install.
