Donation Amount

Today I will teach you friends “How to fix a corrupted Windows system without formatting it”.

Sometimes we have several problem like Windows Explorer not working or some program (Windows) not working correctlly because of our system files got deleted or get corrupted. So we have to format and reinstall Windows in order to work with it properlly.

But is there any way to fix our Windows without formatting it?

The answer is yes. If some of Windows system files got corrupted and you can log into your Windows. Then maybe you can repair your Windows without reinstalling it. Here are the methods…

SFC SCAN:

Open CMD as Administrator by right clicking on Windows start logo and clicking over “Command Prompt (Admin)“.

If a UAC message poped out just click on Yes.

A Black DOS Window will showup. Now type there:

SFC /SCANNOW

Hit enter button from your keyboard it will showup the System File Verfication process from 1% to 100% then it will tell you it can repair your Windows system files or not. If you get a message that files got repaired successfully then just restart your Windows and your problems will be probablly gone.

But if SFC SCAN show that it found some problem and unable to fix them like the picture below, Then we have to go for DISM method.

DISM METHOD:

Insert your Windows Disk into your DVD-ROM.

Now open CMD as Administrator by right clicking on Windows start logo and clicking over “Command Prompt (Admin)“.

If a UAC message poped out just click on Yes.

A Black DOS Window will showup. Now type there:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:S:\sources\install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

Please replace the S: with your DVD-ROM drive letter. Maybe it’s D: or E:.

This will scan your Windows’s recovery image and repair it from the installation DVD. Once it is done it will show you a message like the image below:

DISM-REPAIR-RECOVERY

Now type on your prompt “SFC /SCANNOW”. This time SFC definatelly repair your Windows system files but if it fails then there is no option other that reinstalling the Windows.

Enable VMWare Network Adapter On CentOS 7, Windows Server 2012

Donation Amount

Today I was trying to install CentOS 7 over VMWare 11 but unfortunately the network is not detecting on the CentOS 7. So, After a research I found a way to enable network adapter on CentOS 7 over VMWare 11.

NOTE: THIS ARTICLE IS APPLICABLE FOR WINDOWS SERVER 2012 R2 ALSO.

I found out  the reason  that the CentOS v7 3.10 kernel no longer supports the Ethernet Controller device.

So, after my research what I have found at https://access.redhat.com/discussions/722093

I have added the following line to my .VMX file:

ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”

And it’s really worked.

To edit a .VMX file:

1. Ensure that the virtual machine is shut down (not suspended).

2. Select the virtual machine from the VMware application window (Like for me CentOS 7). Then Click on  VM > Settings, Click on Options Tab. Click on Advanced.

3. Under File Locations you will see Configuration and Log. You can find the files in those directories. Here is a screenshot of that,

4. Open that Configuration .VMX file using notepad and add that line ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000” on the end of the file.

5. When finished, save the changes by using the save option in the text editor. Exit the text editor.

6. Now start your VMWare Machine (CentOS 7) and you can access  Network from your CentOS 7.
