    And regarding that touchpad issue which created all this fuss, till now idk what on the earth is wrong with this laptop. I mean its like a brand new high spec laptop i bought from someone but when i bought it the touchpad was not working on it and the prevoius owner was using a external mouse since the beginning so he never bothered worrying about it. And when i looked into the issue, i found out that the touchpad was disabeled and i tried everything to enable it without any success. Then i thought maybe its a hardware issue and opened the laptop to see what is wrong with it( i can fix laptops at some level) but there was nothing. Everything was just perfect and in working order. So when i reset the window on laptop it came with , then i noticed that i can use cursor on the touchpad only while making installation but as soon as window installs it stops working again.

    That sounds like you are missing the driver. My MacBook does that until I install the trackpad driver - it never gets it from Windows Update.

    What is your laptop model? You can probably download it from the manufacturer site (Dell, Lenovo whatever) if you search for your model.

    Macrium has an option to auto fix VSS errors that works quite well. May be worth a try.

    The image i tried to restore was made using windows inbuilt back utility. And after everything failed then i even converted the window disk image to macrium disk imagein a hope that it may work with marcium and i did worked. But after the restore process when the system is booting its not reading the window and says no bootable device selected.

    If you want to pursue the problem then I suggest creating a new thread. This one has become a mess.

    In any new thread, state all the methods you have used for restoring the image, describe all errors / untoward events and state the stage at which they occurred. Give a link back to this thread aswell.

    If the touchpad is the only problem then you could consider raising that as a separate question in the forum. Make sure you say what you have checked already or you'll get just people suggesting that you check Settings, Devices, Touchpad, {On, Leave on when mouse is connected} and corresponding entries in Control panel, Mouse.

    Or you could just get on with the reinstallation. Then make a system image from it straightaway using Windows own tool or another such as Macrium Reflect Free [see also Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect - TenForums]. Or use both if you have the spare space.

    • Then restore that image before bothering to do anything else so that you will know the image works.
    • You'll also have a nice clean system that you know has no hidden secrets such as incompletely-removed antimalware applications from before you bought it [their effects can be quite bizarre - I had no problems until a year after failing to run the Norton removal tool I discovered that my home network failed when trying to copy files of more than 1MB].

    My laptop is Toshiba P50- C .The machine is just not taking the installation of that specific driver. All other drivers from the support you can download and install but there are 2 touchpad drivers elan and synaptics and when i start the installation the installation window just disapper on both of them.
