Win7 Can't Boot or Safe Boot any disk/part due to STOP 0x0000007B

Question: Win7 Can't Boot or Safe Boot any disk/part due to STOP 0x0000007B

I can no longer boot 64-bit Win 7 Pro in normal or Safe Mode on one computer due to BSOD: STOP 0x0000007B (0XFFFF880009A97E8, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0, 0).

But there is additional, extremely important info: I have two separate month-old backup boot partitions, and they won't boot either for exactly the same reason! One is on a second partition of the main SSD (my regular boot partition is on the first partition), and the other is on a regular hard disk. Therefore, it's extremely unlikely that this is a disk drive or partition problem.

The last thing I did was use AutoRuns to disable some unwanted startups my startup manager (Chameleon Startup Manager) didn't see and thus couldn't disable. However, as I said above, I have two separate month-old backup boot partitions, and I made no changes whatsoever to these, so surely one or the other should boot fine, but I get the same BSOD on all boot partitions!

What I've done so far:
- Ran Startup Repair 6 times total. Each time it reports that it could not repair the problem.

- Tried system restore. It reported every restore attempt failed.

- Booted up with LSoft Active @ Boot Disk, latest version (15.x). Then I ran Check Disk on all disks and partitions, and no problems were reported anywhere. Then I examined all the disks and partitions, and the reports said everything is perfect: all partitions were of the right type, and the integrity of all disks were ideal. Then I ran it's MemTest for 8 hours with no problems.

- Confirmed the BCD store for all disks were setup correctly.

- Disconnected various hard disks and tested via trial and error if this helped. It never did.

- I've confirmed I have the latest BIOS installed.

Note that this BSOD occurs so early in the boot process that it does not produce any dump files, so I can't post them.

Note also that the system booted perfectly immediately prior to the AutoRuns changes to the main boot partition, so the odds are ridiculously low that this is any kind of hardware-related problem. At the same time, the odds are ridiculously low that a software problem is the cause given that the other two backup boot partitions won't boot either and give the same BSODs when I try to boot them. It would thus seem that if there is such a low probability of either a hardware or software problem, then my system should at least boot one of the backups, but it won't! I'm baffled!

What can I try next?

Preferred Solution: Win7 Can't Boot or Safe Boot any disk/part due to STOP 0x0000007B

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Win7 Can't Boot or Safe Boot any disk/part due to STOP 0x0000007B

0x7B's are often caused by physical disk failure. Remove the disk and install it into another computer. Now use SeaTools for DOS to check the drive. Unfortunately that is the only option available.

Greetings to all you great people here. I've already learned a lot by just reading. However, I have come to a dead end. This problem seems to be appearing more than once and I'd like to learn how to fix it. I'm starting in the Win XP forum, but this may end up belonging to the Virus etc, forum. Here's the situation:

I have a computer that suddenly stopped working, and refused to boot. I get the bsod and then Windows immediately reboots.

I managed to capture the stop code. This is it: STOP: 0x0000007b (0xb84C7524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

So my first question about this is what do the extra parameters mean? And are they useful in any diagnosis of the problem?

What I already did before posting:

* I tried booting in safe mode -> same BSOD -> instant reboot
* Returned to "Last Known Good Configuration" -> none was found. At reboot I got same BSOD and instant reboot.
* I tried to run the Recovery Console, but was left with a blinking cursor.

I downloaded a bootable disk from AVG (Rescue CD) which will scan the computer, but it didn't find or fix anything. This cd has a program called TestDisk that looks at the partitions, but everything looks good. It also looks at the boot sector, which it said was OK. I can't remember exactly what it looked at, but noticed that the original and backup were the same, which was concluded to be good.

I booted up to [email protected] Boot Disk and ran CHKDSK /R but it didn't find anything. I al... Read more

Hi all,

I've got a strange one for you today....

I have 4 or 5 year old Win XP Home Tiny desktop computer which is having trouble booting. Basically when booting up, right before the Win XP logo it reboots itself.

I have disconnected all IDE devices except for the master hard drive (plus disabled them in BIOS), I have tried a different hard drive in the machine that I know is working and has XP Pro installed. The same thing happens with this hard drive - reboots. This hard drive also has Ubuntu installed, and the machine happily boots Ubuntu to the normak desktop, but for some reason won't boot XP!

Also tried a third hard drive in this machine that is working with Win 2000 installed, again the same thing happens.

Next I tried the original hard drive in a working seperate machine which produces the same result again.

Also tried removing the RAM from the original machine and inserting a stick of working RAM from my other machine which again makes no difference.

All hard drives I've tried have the correct jumper setting (primary master).
Also tried putting the Win XP disc in the drive and booting to that, I get to the menu and try to do a repair (R), but a few seconds after the repair begins the system reboots (this is using the original hard drive).
Also tried booting into safe mode, and last known good config on all drivers.

The hard drive is being detected in POST and in the BIOS which I have set as the first (and only) boot device.

Hello helpers,
I have a W7 Pro 64 machine (Dell). Two days ago, all programs became very sluggish/hung up, so I restarted in an attempt to set things right.
Ever since then, Windows has not booted.  It goes to the Windows Recovery, but it cannot locate the Windows OS to repair/recover.  Viewing the Boot Log, it hangs on CLASSPNP.SYS. 
The BSOD it throws has the error message: 
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)
 
These threads outline my exact problem (http://www.overclockingwiki.org/forums/showthread.php/6052-O-K-I-m-Stuck!! and

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itprogeneral/thread/b950c21f-46f4-4011-99f6-00e9c2780170).  This is apparently a semi-well known issue.  I found one fix that seems to work for most, which entails copying the CLASSPNP.SYS file from
another system and copying it to the crippled machine (while renaming the original CLASSPNP.SYS.OLD or something along those lines).  I have done this, but to no avail. 
I have run all diagnostics on the drive, no errors.  I've also tried changing from AHCI mode to ATA in CMOS, but again no results.
Please help if you can, I have no idea what to try next besides a clean install and I really would rather avoid that.

Hello, I am new to these forums and I have just a little bit of knowledge about computers. Hopefully enough that I can follow instructions! I think this is the correct forum as my issues started after some sort of bot was detected on my computer, so I think that something has infected my computer.

Here is the situation:
Computer: Dell Dimension 3100 from 2006 running Windows XP Media Center Edition
AVG (free version) and RU Botted (Trend Micro) both run on this computer. I also have MBAM downloaded and do occasional scans with it, as well as SpyBot Search & Destroy.

Yesterday afternoon while web-browsing in IE I got a small pop-up in the lower right corner, from RU Botted indicating that a Bot had been detected. It said the BOT could not be removed. It all happened fast so I did not catch the name of the Bot. All programs open on my computer began to shut down. I panicked and here is where I did something that probably did not help - instead of letting the computer finish shutting itself down I just hit the power button to instantly turn it off.

I can now no longer get my computer up and running. Upon starting I get the Dell screen (and can get into the Set-Up or Boot menus) and then I get a black screen with the choices of how to start my computer (Safe Mode, Safe w/Networking, Safe Mode w/Command Prompt, Last Known Good Config, and Start Windows Normally).

If I try any of the Safe Mode options I get a bunch of info scrolling by and then the Blue Scr... Read more

Answer:Blue Screen Stop: 0x0000007B, computer won't boot

Hello and welcome to Bleeping ComputerMy name is etavares and I will be working with you to fix your computer.Please take note:If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.If you are unable to perform the steps we have recommended please try one more time and if unsuccessful alert us of such and we will design an alternate means of obtaining the necessary information.Once we start working together, please reply back within 3 days or this thread may be closed so we can help others who are waiting. If you will be unable to respond (e.g. vacation, travel, etc.), please let me know ahead of time.Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process. Please also continue to work with me until I give you the all clear. Even if your computer appears to act better, you may still be infected.It sounds likely that you have a backdoor rootkit that infected the Master Boot Record. We can hopefully recover. Do you have a clean computer and an empty USB flash drive? We can create a bootable environment to boot the infected computer from the USB flash drive and work through the error; or at least access your files.

hi guys, im hoping one of you can help me, im trying to dual boot XP onto my win 7 machine and its just not working! its getting to the "windows is starting setup" screen on installation then blue screening with a stop 0x0000007b (0xf7802524, 0xc0000034 0x0000000 0x0000000) error, im pretty sure its down to hard drive controllers, (it was being discussed here: How much space does XP need? but there wasnt a solution so thought id ask "properly")

things i have tried: installing it with ACHI disabled and BIOS set to SATA mode,
Slipstreaming this: Direct Port Access Windows Driver [WINDPA.ZIP] SATA driver from Intel (only one i could find) and also the XP sata drivers from nvidia (my chipset manufacturor)
Slipstreaming SP3 + the above drivers in,

im now trying downloading the drivers direct from ECS see if that makes a difference

otherwise im out of ideas, hoping someone can help

Answer:Dual boot XP error code stop 0x0000007b

Going to the support page for your motherboard was going to be my next suggestion in the other thread. That should get you the correct driver. I believe windows XP is going to look for an inf file so if the driver is in a zip file or some other compressed file make sure you unzip it first. I don't know anything about slip streaming drivers into the CD but I do know when you put the driver on a floppy it has to be in the root of the disk. If its in a folder windows won't find it. This floppy disk SATA/RAID driver issue with windows XP has been a pain for a lot of people.

have an ACER laptop.
- when starting windows normally - it stays on the windows loading screen for hours
- running from all of the safe modes causes it to freeze at classpnp
- running last working configuration causes it to freeze on a black screen
- running recovery mode causes it to also freeze on a black screen (for hours)
- trying to boot from a windows 7 disc and going to repair/recovery option stays at a blue screen with a cursor
- some people have suggested changing SATA mode from AHCI to IDE, which i did, this leads me to BSOD during safe mode and normal start up - BSOD error message - 0x0000007b

i'm really stuck on where to go now and i have limited computer knowledge. any suggestions would be appreciated!

Typical causes: Installing incorrect device drivers when installing or upgrading storage adapter hardware, or a virus.

I left my computer asleep. When I awoke it, it froze up, so I restarted it and it told me I had a disk boot failure, insert boot disk.

If I reboot, and press f8 to get a boot menu from the bios, I can select the drive that has windows on it.

If I do not intervene beyond this, it will boot to windows, but as soon as I login, it will show the task bar, but that's as far as it gets. The mouse will still move but beyond that I have no control, left or right click, ctrl, alt, del. Etc. The one light on the front of the case that usually blinks, remains on solid.

Sometimes after this stage if I reboot (with the button on the case), the drive that contains windows will not be recognized by the bios. It will simply say that sata connection is empty.

If I power the computer off, and wait a few seconds and turn it on, the drive will be displayed again. I then can press f8 to get the boot menu, and select the right drive, and this time I will press f8 to get the windows boot menu. I can select safe mode with networking, and boot up. I have been using windows on safe mode for over an hour and it runs fine.

I have run MSE, as well I downloaded AVG free, but I can only use the command line version in safe mode, which I did.

I am not sure what to check here. I was thinking the hard drive was failing, but then why am I able to run on safe mode for so long? Boot sector virus? Some other virus? What should I look for, and what can I do in safe mode, a lot of choices are dis... Read more

Booting normally or with the last known good config ends at a black screen before windows splash load screen starts.
Booting in safe mode stops at a line that reads "multi(0)disk(0)rddisk(0)partition(1)\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\AVGIDSEH.Sys"
and when booting from the disk it stops at the Windows Setup blue screen that reads starting windows at the bottom of the screen after it loads the setup files, it never gets to the point that I can do anything.

Hi

Enter BIOS and set it to default settings. After restart enter BIOS settings again and check if HDD is recognized and listed properly.
Please send some feedback.

I don't understand why you didn?t create recovery media. This recovery media can be used if HDD option doesn?t work anymore or in case that HDD is defective. After HDD exchange using this media you can install original recovery image again.

Alright here is my issue as best as I can explain it. I have two drives, one with a system partition one with my boot. The one with the boot is the drive I want to use as my primary. I want to format the drive with the system partition.

How can I move the sys partition to the boot drive so that I can format the other since right now disk management will not let me format the drive with the sys partition.

OK, I am new to this forum. It seems like you guys know what you are talking about so I will ask you for help. I am fairly computer saavy, but by no means an expert. I have a Dell Demension 8200 running Windows XP Professional. I have an 80gb HD that is almost full, a pentium 4 running at 2gh, and 1gb of RAM. I was recently trying to clean house and free up some space on my hard drive. After I did that and deleted several programs that I haven't used in forever I tried to elimintate some of the running processes. I have a few beefy programs on my computer like Autocad 2004 and 3D Studio Max 6 which I think may be responsible for some of the extra processes. I went into administrative tools and changes a few things, but I dont really remember what. I also have a few style programs, mainly styleXP. I added a bunch of different themes, boot screens, and logon screens to give my PC a better look. Heres where I think the problem happened...

I have this boot randomization program that I downloaded a few years ago. When I used it then it worked fine, but I had uninstalled it and updated my computer several times since then. I think it was the last thing I installed before my computer decided it hates me.

The next time I started my computer I got a message during startup that said something like ..."could not start windows, "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\ntfs.sys" is missing or corrupt. I followed microsofts procedure through the repair console using their script... Read more

Hi,Thanks in advance for your assistance with my "situation"!My computer is a Dell Dimension 4700 Pentium 4 running Windows XP Home Edition,sp3.My story started with the machine losing it's internet connection. This computer started having AVG quarantining files in response to a trojan infection. (I don't remember the exact message, but a couple of the infected files noted at different times were: netbt.sys and svchost.exe)After a few of these messages,some time later, the computer stopped recieving it's address from the router.I have a DSL router supplied by my internet provider as the hub of my home network.This started my quest to repair my internet connection and remove whatever infected this machine.In my research, I landed on the following site(not Bleeping Computer.com unfortunately)and followed their recommended steps.http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407 (Malware Removal Guide)http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=139313 (Windows XP Malware Removal/Cleaning Procedure)I got to the point where it said to run Combofix.(I know better now!)

Hi, I have a win7 system on a Inspiron 1545 that a friend gave me to figure out why it wasn't working. I'm an experienced sysadmin and have been working with Windows systems for decades. After some hours, I removed a ton of viruses, including the svchost.exe rootkit.

After the final reboot, the system no longer boots. It fails with "STOP: 0x0000007B", inaccessible boot device.

I've gone through the whole "Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot" document (Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot) without success.

I'm confident there are no more viruses and the hard disk passes smartctl and chkdsk.

I've also done Startup Recovery and tried restoring a restore point without success.

The system boots to where the window is assembled, then just keeps rebooting.

I have a Repair CDROM I made when the system did boot, and the Recovery DVDs created by the Dell software on the system, but neither boot and I don't understand why.

Could this be a registry corruption issue?

Could this be a bootrec issue, or has it passed that point in the boot process? I've run bootrec /fixmbr, /fixboot and /rebuildbcd and none worked.

Thanks for any ideas.

Answer:BSOD: STOP: 0x0000007B on win7 after removing virus

BSOD stop 0x7B does not allow the computer to boot up, even in safe mode.

A boot virus/bootkit may cause this issue. And, a removal of bootkit resulting to removal of boot files/sectors may also cause the issue (alongwith some other possible causes like a failing HDD, boot priority, or even storage controller mode).

Now please let us see a little more.Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

Hello to all,
I'm experiencing very strange problem with Dell T5500 workstation. In my office I have a couple of identical T5500 precision workstations. I do a regular maintenance and make Acronis image regular  of each machine.

Two days ago I experienced a so called "Smart Event" on one HDD on one Dell workstation. Also Windows issued a warning that HDD is failing. I made another acronis image backup. During backups I never had any problems or warnings.
This machine had two HDDs, but RAID was not active. So I exchanged the failing HDD and simply restored acronis image. The complete process went without any problems. But when Windows started for a split of second I saw blue screen and then infinite reboot.
With F8 I have disables automatic reboot and then I saw that the error is famous 0x0000007B(0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0x0...34,0,0)
Based on what I saw on the Internet it is most likely problem with disk controller.
No settings in BIOS were changed!
No other HW except HDD is changed. Insted of Segate 500 GB, I have placed WD 500GB in the same HW.
Windows rescue CD cannot repair the startup. Windows is Win7 64 bit SP1. I tried everything that I found on the internet (manually fix boot and mbr, change regedit keys SCSI Miniport...) but that didn't help.

I decided to try one more thing. On other working machine, I have made backup, removed HDD, put new HDD and restored a backup that I made 1 hour earlier. The result is the same. Windows cannot start ... Read more

I get a message that Windows failed.
Status: 0xc000000e
Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

It instructs me to insert the windows installation disc, restart, and run "repair your computer".  However, I did not receive an installation disc, only a utilities disk (which does not boot)
What do I do now?

Answer:Inspiron M5030 recovery boot issue. Recovery disk does full restore and starts Win7, which operates fine. But on restart, windows will not boot.

1. Reseat the hard disk drives, reseat the controller and monitor. 2. Perform chkdsk /r on the RAID volume. 3. Run diagnostics on the hard disk drives and controller and replace as necessary.

I've never gotten this error when installing any version of Windows on a clean hard disk and I hope there is a solution as, otherwise, it's a bad board. This system originally came as a Dell factory-downgraded Windows XP installation (from Vista).

Here's the system.

I've swapped the hard disk, memory, DVD drive, video card, power supply and even tried installing XP, Vista and 7, all resulting in the same 07B stop error. There are no add-in cards aside from the video.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:STOP 0x0000007B on installing XP on Clean Hard Disk

From what i read about that error its caused by a hard drive problem of some sort or if you are going from say vista back to xp the setting in the BIOS has to be either ATA,SATA, IDE, or compatability to install and run xp. AHCI is for vista and windows 7.

Today out of nowhere my computer decided it would not boot into Windows. I kept getting various BSOD's until I booted from my Windows CD and set it to boot into safe mode by default via command prompt. Startup repair has not fixed anything, and actually bluescreened itself a couple times (1E and 51). The last few times it has not bluescreened but still isn't repairing anything ("cannot determine root cause"). Now trying to boot into safe mode (with minimal processes) it consistently is crashing with code F4. I have tried running System File Checker and it found errors, but was unable to fix them. I'm unsure what to do at this point

Hello,
 
This is really urgent for me...
I ran into a new problem on an old computer.
And I'm having trouble fixing it because my XP PC keeps throwing me a BSOD with error codes:
 
STOP: 0x00000050 and randomly (0xEE70F000; 0x8058AF5D; 0xEE92F000; 0xEE9B2000; 0x00000001; 0x00000000).
 
It happened after this sequence of actions:
 
I had Comodo Internet Security and it was slowing down my PC a bit so I had decided to install Avast antivirus and ZoneAlarm Firewall combo instead. I updated Comodo and scanned my PC for any malware, none was detected. Then I uninstalled it but didn't restart my PC; installed ZoneAlarm and Avast, and only then I rebooted.
 
Windows loaded but right away I got an error and a blue screen with above mentioned error codes.
 
I've tried F8 and it only shows me options for boot-up, like from which disc to boot, there is NO SAFE MODE option.
 
And now I'm stuck. I cannot start the PC... As soon as the programs start loading, the BSOD comes.
 
 
WHAT CAN I DO ?

Answer:STOP: 0x00000050 etc. + cannot boot into safe mode

This will only work if you have system restore turned on and it only does a partial system restore but it may get you back to before you installed avast and Zonealarm. Follow the steps in this link.

Hi, my computer is not booting up. On "Start Windows Normally" it boots until just before the log in screen then shuts off and restarts itself. When trying to start it in safe mode and last known good configuration it does the same thing. I tried system restore but it says that I have no restore points. When using "Launch Startup Repair" it checks the computer and says it can not repair automatically. It also gives me a message "If you have recently attached a device to this computer.. remove it and restart your computer..." I removed all the devices including keyboard and mouse and it did not help.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Edit: The last time I was on the computer it worked fine and it was only on for 10 min. Didn't do anything on it and shut it down since I had to leave home.

Hardware looks most likely if you can't get into Safe Mode. Use 1 RAM chip at a time, see if you get the same results.

Make sure you have minidumps enabled and a pagefile on the System drive. You could then zip and upload the dumps for analysis.

Just a little background information:

I've used computers my entire life, but never encountered a problem such as this. I don't understand a lot of the jargon, so please forgive my ignorance. I just know how to use a computer...not fix them...but hopefully, with your help, that will change.

Prior to the BSOD:

I just upgraded from Vista to 7 and have been adding the typical programs to the hard drive such as avast!, CCleaner, Defraggler, etc. Well, avast! kept blocking websites such as Pandora and after trying to fix this problem and speaking with a customer service rep, I uninstalled it and downloaded AVG Anti Virus. AVG came with a few extra programs that I didn't want, so I uninstalled them, but kept AVG. I then scanned my laptop, deleted all the extra junk, defragged it and went to sleep. The computer was hibernating.

Come morning time, I downloaded Photoshop and proceeded to install it when I was prompted to restart my computer because another program required it. So...I restart it and I've been plagued by the BSOD ever since.

In trying to get rid of some adware, I attempted to boot my computer (P4 2.8 GHz, 1.5 GB Ram, Windows XP SP2) in safe mode. When I selected "Safe Mode with Networking", I was brought to a blue screen called a "STOP ERROR SCREEN" - basically it said that it had to stop the booting up of the computer or the computer might be harmed. It suggested removing any recently installed hardware and disabling BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. So I rebooted and got into windows normally just fine.

Then I decided to try just regular Safe Mode (without networking) - when I selected that option, the computer started to do it, then rebooted and prompted me if I wanted to boot into Windows normally or safe mode, etc...I tried Safe Mode again - same thing, a reboot. I tried Safe Mode with Networking again - and I got the blue Stop Error Screen again.

This is pretty strange (at least I've never seen it) and I'd really like to be able to boot into safe mode. Anyone have any ideas? I'd appreciate the help.

Thanks -

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 laptop running WinXP SP2 (Pentium M 1.55Ghz, 500MB RAM, 25GB HD). When I try to boot into Safe Mode, I get a BSOD with a STOP 0x0000007B (0xF8BA0528, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) error. The computer had previously been infected with the Virut virus, however, I think I have gotten rid of it by using Ez-Pc-Fix (www.ezpcfix.net)and the Virut Removal Tool (rmvirut.exe) from AVG in UBCD. Additionally I think that I had this problem before I got the virus, and I just remembered about it now because I wanted to boot into Safe Mode while trying to get rid of the virus. I have no problem booting into Windows normally. I ran chkdsk /f /r, and it said it needed to reboot. I did so and it ran, however, I can't tell if it fixed anything because I can't find a log file, and chkdsk in Windows is still finding errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:STOP 0x7B error on boot in Safe Mode

My understanding is that Virut infections require a clean install of Windows...before users can hope for the system security/function to return to normal.

I suggest that you take that path, but I'm no malware professional/expert.

Hi there.

Apologies if this has been covered before but I've looked through the referenced tutorials and searched a lot to no avail.

Background
I have a Samsung laptop which developed Hard drive errors before completely refusing to boot up. I have removed the hard drive and inserted a brand new hard drive purchased today. I have an ISO of the Win7 cd so I burned this to a blank DVD

Issue
I have set the CD as the primary booting device in the BIOS and started the laptop with the DVD in. The DVD does not boot and returns a black screen with "Operating System not found".
Please advise on how to proceed. I made a system recovery disk on another win7 machine which then gives me some options but I don't know how to do a clean install from here.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

S.

Answer:Install on new HDD, Can't boot from Win7 disk. Disk was burned from IS

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Check this tutorial: Clean Install Windows 7

Samsung manuals here: http://www.user-guides.co.uk/Samsung...DDownloads.asp

The system recovery disc you made is probably a repair disc that gets you into the Windows recovery environment for several repair options, it won't be any good for re-installing your operating system.

Everything is unplugged apart from mouse, keyboard hdmi to screen and ethernet cable. Unplugging the win10 drive from the mobo and switching the win7 drive to another port has not helped.

Has my ssd failed? has win 10 done an update that has caused this problem? It did update today, in fact the first error message I got was after win10 shut down, and when I booted into it again it installed some updates before launching.

Answer:dual boot win7/win10 wont boot to win7 anymore +BSOD "memory managemen

Hi @vinvanda.

As far as I can understand from your post that you had W7 and W10 as dual boot in two different disks.

From the uploaded data we could not find a hint of the BSOD that you said (it is not recorded anywhere, probably because it happened during boot); but some other statements are supported by the data.





Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4.



Now, it is STATUS_NOT_SAME_DEVICE; reads as .... "The destination file of a rename request is located on a different device than the source of the rename request".

Now I am making a guess. It it is wrong, please rectify and state the proper situation.
You name the Windows 7 Disk as "system" and the Windows 10 disk as "Win 10". You also said that windows 7 is the default boot. So I am guessing that the boot files are in the the windows 7 disk.

The board is set as Legacy BIOS. So Fast Boot is not possible here; and if Fast Startup is enabled, windows7 needs to disk check in every startup. It is desirable to keep fast startup disabled on a computer with W7.

Now Coming to the "Secure Boot Violation". Windows 7 does not support it at all. And, it is the Firmware Validation Process of UEFI; whereas your system is set to Legacy. I think here lies the issue.





BIOS Mode Legacy



Disable UEFI and Secure boot> Hopefully Windows 7 will boot back.

Hey guys,
Thanks ahead of time for the help. I can honestly say I'm dumbfounded with this issue and would rather ask for help then hook up my master HD as a slave and force a reformat which would be my next step.

Anyways, here's the background on the issue.

Rig:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ OC'd to 2.75ghz
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe Mobo
BFG Tech Nvidia 7800 GTOC x2 (SLI)
Dual Sata Hd's, both the 3gb/s connection. (750gb main/250gb Backup)
Sound Blaster XFI Fatal1ty sound card
Creative modem blaster v.92 dialup modem ( @ dialup)

A few days ago, not quite sure why, but when I booted the comp the graphics card proceeded to tweak out and basically looked like fuzz upon entering windows. Eventually after hard resetting it a few times it'd boot normal. Today, I was running Nvidia NTune utility to find a stable OC setup for my PCI bus and what not, and it rebooted as normal during the process. Graphics card tweaked again, so I did what I know to do and uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers for my 7800's. Seemingly fixed the problem. Rebooted and resumed the OC process and went to watch TV.

45 Minutes later I come back and my computer is rebooting itself constantly. Upon getting the the xp loading screen, it BSoD's and reboots.

So, I try and boot in safemode to uninstall/reinstall drivers yet again. When I press safemode, it begins loading basic drivers. When it gets to SPTD.sys it pauses, locks up, and reboots (no BSoD)

Next step, repair through XP installer di... Read more

Answer:[SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot

Update:

Well, a friend needed me to fix a design for him emergency status in Illustrator CS3, so I went to work troubleshooting.

All signs point to NTFS.sys being corrupt, etc. Which makes the drive unreadable, hence the reboots.

So, I snagged my dads IDE harddrive from his computer, hooked it up as master in my computer and it still gave me the BSoD. I then unhooked both of my Sata Hd's, and ran ONLY the IDE drive. This IDE drive is fine (i'm on it right now on my dads comp to write this). I try and boot my system off just his harddrive and it STILL gave me the BSoD.

Only difference is the BSoD is staying up now on normal boot so I can give you the error.

Error code is 0x0000007B? I believe.

But yeah, the computer is still unable to boot off a good HD even with the bad ones not hooked up.

Now I'm thinking a memory issue? or Video ram issue? Fried GPU/RAM?

AHHHHHH!!!!! i have no idea what to do. This is ridiculous. meanwhile my friend is screwed on his design for a t-shirt i told him i'd do.

I recently tried partitioning my hard drive, but canceled it in G parted a little after I started it.  I then went to boot into 7 and it worked fine. After I restarted though, the win7 logo would come up, then my PC would restart.  In recovery mode, none of them will work, and when I try to boot into safe mode, it gets stuck at the classpnp.sys, then restarts. Any help?

Answer:Win7 won't boot...gets stuck at classpnp.sys in Safe mode

Reboot to the Win7 DVD and run the repair function. It may take some time to run but hopefully will correct the problem.

Hi there,

My buddy just called and can't get his computer to boot, in normal or in safe mode. He actually can't even get the option for safe mode by hitting the F8 key on his emachine.
He said before he restarted his computer was making a lot of "click" noises, like when you navigate the forward and backward buttons on internet explorer. He did a virus scan before restarting and didn't find anything.

His keyboard works fine, as he can get into the bios.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Friends computer won't boot Win7 or safe mode

Hard drive failure is generally where clicking comes from followed by failure to get into any of the OS modes.

Hello,

I have dual boot in my laptop with Ubuntnu 14.04 LTS and Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Today after working on Ubuntu I restarted and switched to Windows and as soon as it logged in I noticed the battery was 0%. I thought maybe it was some kind of glitch or something (silly me!) so I just pulled the power supply and the laptop abruptly turned off. My laptop battery is completely dead now...won't charge at all and after that incident when I tried to log back into Windows it showed this error:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware of software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3.Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

I don't have an installation disc, I tried pressing F8 and none of the options there helped. Ubuntu still works totally fine though. So I'm guessing it is not some hard drive crash and my data are fine in Windows but I just can't boot into it! Please Help!!

Answer:Dual Boot: Win7: Boot Manager Status: 0xc000000f boot selection failed

Are you using GRUB2 as bootmanager and is windows one of the options? Or do you start ubuntu from the win7 boot menu?

Long story short I was cleaning junk off my laptop which has Windows XP Home Edition on it. I use to have some viruses, etc on it but I cleaned all that off. I was still cleaning junk off like stuff I was never going to use or need again. So I ran Sfc /scannow with my Windows XP Home Edition CD in the drive to replace any system files that had any problems. After that I ran the Repair the Windows XP Installation from the WIndows XP Home Edition CD but after I did that I would get a black screen after the Windows loading screen. I don't believe Safe Mode was working either so I went back to try the same thing now I get STOP: 0x000007B after the Windows loading screen. Note: I had Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 installed and Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 on the CD. I wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed lol. Now the CD does say it has drivers on it I haven't tried doing anything with that. I ran chkdsk /r and fixboot on the Recovery Console but that didn't fix it. Next I tried to rebuild boot.ini on the Recovery Console bootcfg /rebuild and that didn't fix it. Also I found the boot.ini.backup so I copied it and renamed it to boot.ini after putting it in the C:\ folder. I did see some other .backup but I don't know if those have anything to do with it not booting up to Windows normally. Next I booted up to the Kaspersky Rescue Disk and ran a scan after updating the definitions. The scan results came up clean. The good news is I can still see the stuff I have on ... Read more

Answer:STOP: 0x000007B Cannot Boot into Windows XP Home or Safe Mode

Your repair using the windows xp sp2 most likely copied old driver files to the computer...easy way out is backup your files and reinstall...hard way out is slipstream sp3 into your xp disc and try a repair install again... I would not advise this because of all the fixes you have already done.

hey guys i got a question for you.

i dug out an older desktop i had and decided to see if i could get windows 7 to run on it. it's a 2ghz dell, 512 mb ram, nvidia fx5500 graphics. for some reason none of my win7 disks will boot. xp disk boots fine. i thought it possible that it was because the ram was to low. but i just get a black screen for a second then regular boot to xp. i did double check the boot order.

let me know what you think.

thx

Try running the installer Setup file from XP.

I have tried to boot my OEM Win7 disk but it is not recognized.

This is a rebuild of a machine, new Anthlon X2, new Biostar MB, 2Gb RAM, new WD 500 STAT HD, new 430W PSU.

I tried several times to get the OEM Win7 disk to boot but nothing. To test what was wrong I inserted my XP home disk and that booted fine? I went ahead and did a base install of XP and it worked fine.

I installed my previous IDE HD and moved data to and external HD, but now I want to do a clean install of Win7 to the SATA HD and remove the IDE HD, but the OEM disk doesn't boot. From inside Windows Explorer if I view the D: (DVD) I see it has a disk but when I explore the disk it show no files? Is this normal? Is it an image that will not show the files?

Any help would be appreciated

so, I recently got my hands on an older pc without a hard drive. I also had a windows laptop die on me, but the HDD is fine so i put it in my new pc. Now, when i boot it gives me the option to boot windows or the recovery options. i try to boot windows. it goes for ~10 seconds and reboots. a quick google search indicated thats typical. i figured id try to boot safemode and do a driver sweep, but F8 only made a mini boot menu pop up so i used this: Safe Mode - Windows 7 Help Forums
guide to set it to boot into safe mode in the command line which i could access in the recovery options. and i rebooted it, and it tried to boot safemode aswell, and got partway along, but died again and reboot itself. so, should i give up and install ubuntu or something? I cant afford to buy a copy of windows.

Answer:Transferred win7 drive to another pc, unable to boot, even safe mode

When Windows installs on a computer it takes a snapshot of the existing hardware, motherboard, chipset and loads drivers specifically for that board.
When you remove that HDD and place it in a different computer with different motherboard, when you boot, Windows looks for the old motherboard to load the drivers and can't find it and then BSOD's or fails to boot. If you have a Windows disc, you can boot off of the disc and choose to Repair Your Computer and it will load the specific chipset drivers that are missing. These cannot be downloaded from the internet they must be installed from the disc.
What is the make and model# of the computer? You can order a Recovery disc from the manufacturer Tech Support Forum - Announcements in Forum : Microsoft Support or you can get a Windows disc from Craigslist or Ebay. Or install Ubuntu.

I was unable to get into safe mode via normal method. Used msconfig and still blocked. Now trying from boot disk (created from this site) the c drive has disappeared. External drive was initially identified as c drive. I have now removed external drive and c does not exist. I have tried the rest of the alphabet but it is not there. Help appreciated.
Initial problem was virus causing slow computer and random internet access. I ran Sophos, Kaspersky virus removal tool , Malwarebytes anti-malware and McAfee all came up clean, but problem not solved.

Answer:boot disk/safe mode

You can enter safe mode via hitting F8 just after the BIOS POST Codes where it displays the RAM, Drives, and what not. Just before the Windows is loading splash screen.Just before this:

Friend/client's laptop.
Dell Inspiron 1525.
Windows 7 Home basic.
x64 (I believe - unconfirmed).
From what my mate explains he got fooled by a spoof website claiming he needed to "defragment" his drive. He obviously followed a few too many prompts and got infected.

The problem I now have is ever time we turn the lappy on it goes through the initial booting of windows then gets to the "Welcome" screen (right before it would usually load the desktop). It then pops up a BSOD, does it's dump then reboots. If left alone it will do this indefinitely.

Loading in safe mode has the same result.

The BSOD error code is:


Code:
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x820836B3, 0xAE19FB24, 0x00000000)

I don't care to repair the Windows partition particularly. I just want to recover some important files before formatting.

I tried Hiren's Boot CD and an XP MiniPE live CD to try copying the files to an external HDD but the C:\ drive didn't even show up in either application.

From my research the error code points to a corrupt MBR. So I got into repair mode with my Win7 CD and tried:


Code:
X:\Sources bootsext.exe /fixmbr

as well as

Bootrec.exe /FixMbr
and Bootrec.exe /FixBoot
Neither helped.

Any suggestions?

Thanks heaps guys.

Answer:Get's to the "Welcome" part of the boot then BSOD. No safe mode either

What I don't understand is if the boot record on the HDD is that corrupt that the HDD isn't recognizable in a live CD environment how come it can find enough of the crucial Windows files to boot the OS to the point where it's about to load the desktop?

Hello!

This is very strange problem. I have a "DISK BOOT FAILURE" error during startup. I just installed Ultimate x64 and now this error appears. It was OK on Ultimate x86.

I detached all hard drives and USB devices except system disk and DVD ROM and still error appears. I booted from installation disk and ran repair and still error appears. I booted again from installation disk and ran next cmd:

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
c:
cd boot
attrib bcd -s -h -r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

and still error appears.

The only way to run Win7 is to insert installation disk to DVD, wait until message "Press any key to run from cd or dvd", DO NOT press any key and wait. In a few seconds Win7 starts.

Does any one know how to solve it? Thanks!

Answer:Disk boot failure on Win7 x64, x86 is OK

Download Visual BCD Editor - Windows 7 & Vista Dual Boot Repair. Install.
Run Dual-boot Repair utility - "Automatic Repair". Reboot.
That would be all.

It is strange but the tool fixes booting (also for single boot systems) when StartUp Repair fails !? All the tools does is executing bootsect.exe and bcdboot.exe with the needed parameters.

Four elements are needed for boot menu to be displayed:
1) MBR (can be fixed with bootsect.exe)
2) PBR (can be fixed with bootsect.exe)
3) bootmgr (can be fixed with bcdboot.exe)
4) BCD in \boot folder (can be fixed with bcdboot.exe)

Always use correct bit version 32 or 64 bit of Recovery CD/USB - must match your Windows bit version !

currently i am getting winload.exe missing or corrupt, status 0xc000000e, could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt, when trying to install Win7 home premium for distribution with pc.

i did set the bios boot order to DVD first.

This hard drive was previously loaded from the same Win7 DVD, it had a master file table corrupt. i put the drive in my other computer and used Sea Tools to recover files and check for disk errors. Sea Tools did not find any errors. This drive previously had severe malware issues, so i used CCleaner to wipe it. i reformatted it, installed in the original computer, but got bootmgr missing error. i put it back in the other machine and used bcdboot.exe to copy boot files into a new partion, then put it back into the first machine. Now i get winload.exe missing or corrupt error.

Obviously i have missed a step, but am not finding anything to explain it.

I seem to remember having to sign up with Microsoft as a computer builder to get something that allowed me to use the Win7 install for new computers instead of the retail version, but i don't remember what that was about.
 

Answer:win7 install disk won't boot

When you boot up, does the DVD spin and lights flash like it's trying to load?
Try unplugging your HDD(s), USB and other DVD drives so only the Win DVD is in the system and boot like that to test your DVD.

Yesterday my computer refused to boot. It got as far as the bit where it asks me which operating system to load: "Windows XP" or "Windows XP Recovery Console". Whichever one I select, the screen goes blank a few seconds after and then the computer restarts.

I tried going into safe mode but even that doesn't work. It runs through a list of commands, reaches one called "drivers/mup.sys" and freezes for several seconds, then restarts.

Another time I got an error message that the drive wasn't mountable.

After all that, I tried to reboot my computer but the recovery disk got halfway through the procedure and then simply crashed. I downloaded the files for a boot disk from the internet yet when I tried to run it, I got an error message that a "non-system disk was inserted. Remove and strike a key when ready."

Anyone know why this might be happening? I haven't installed any new software or hardware recently nor changed any of the settings on my computer.


(This is from my second computer as it happens. I tried removing the hard drive from my first computer and putting it in this one as the slave but just got an error message that the drive couldn't be read.)

1.) I want to download from somewhere all the relevant files to create a Win XP Home SP2 Boot Disk which will allow me to start my computer. CD, DVD, Zip 100, any of them will do. Even if this only lets me boot to Safe Mode, that will do as long as I can get my data files off the damned hard drive. I can't get the XP startup files off the recovery disk so I need to download them from somewhere. I do have the XP Home SP2 upgrade disk somewhere.


2.) While in Safe Mode, would it be possible to run an external DVD writer connected to a USB port? Do people generally rail against external disks or are they a good deal (EG the Iomega DVD writer for ?70.00 or so)?

3). Is it possible to find a list of all the XP2 files that can be deleted and still allow the OS to run? I have heard of people reducing their Windows installation from 300 MB to 40 MB and then claim that their PC boots up in less than 3 seconds, they have no ports open, backdoors are simply not possible and that their machine simply cannot be infected with a virus.

Hmm. nice if it were true....

How would we do this?


4). If I remove my hard drive and connect it to another computer, will it work (assuming it is not damaged) or will XP think it's been installed somewhere else and release a 50 Km-wide Electro-Magnetic Pulse?

5). Can I uninstall Windows XP Home SP2 and install Win 98 without destr... Read more

If I have to reinstall win 7, will a backup/restore on ex drive put it back where it was before upgrading to win 10 including programs or just files?

I had a computer running Win7 Pro, with 2 hard drives C (OS boot etc) and D. A while ago, D drive began to show some disk error msg, and so I stopped using it. Recently I got a spare drive from a friend, and trying to replace my old D drive with it. I opened the CPU box and unattached the old D drive, and I restarted the computer and confirmed that Win7 would still run on the C drive only. then I attached the new drive, and restarted the computer again. Apparently the new drive had OS installed on it, and computer started on that new drive. The new drive became C: and the old C drive became D. I tried to switch back to the old C drive by disconnecting the new drive, and got message "missing OS". From the computer property or msconfig I see only one entry "Windows 7".

I really need to boot from the old C drive (with all the applications installed), but don't know how.

Any advice/solution will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:How to change default OS boot disk in Win7

Make sure you didn`t loosen the cable or cables from your original drive.

There`s no reason your original drive shouldn`t boot to windows again.

Do you have an install dvd ? You can use that to format the drive you got from your friend.

If not then you could create a Partition Wizard Boot CD to format it. (from/on a working PC)

Answer:[SOLVED] Win7 startup need boot disk

err this how you format and install windows ether its xp, 7 or vista

you put the disk in
go into the bios and set the boot order to dvd drive
boot from the disk and wait for the blue windows setup screen
press f8 to accept the terms
delete drive C:
select format

once format has been done you leave the boot oredr as it is then windows will return to the blue screen so press f8 to accept the terms and then

Howdy ... I have win 7 ultimate 32 bit and something is wrong with the start up files. I tried using mini tool to repair the MBR but that didn't help. If the install disk is not in the dvd player windows will go to the screen that states there is a problem due to new software or hardware which isn't the case and gives me the option of launching the repair option or starting windows normally ... if I try starting normally it gets as far as the logo, then reboots. When I ask it to do a repair I get an error message stating "failed to save startup options" ... I have to put in the install disk and do the repair that way, then I can get into windows ... remove the install disk ... get the error screen when I reboot ... leave in the install disk ... it is able to get the startup files it needs and goes into windows. The problem is getting those files to the hard drive and why isn't the install disk doing this during the repair?

Hello,

I could use some help. I'm now thinking I bought the wrong Win7 Pro disk (System Builders). I built a new PC and thought this would be the right version for a brand new install but now I have my doubts. I am trying to boot from DVD drive (Win7 install disk). My bios screen (Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3) allows me to hit F12 to boot, and then select CD/DVD drive. I just get a "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter".

More background: I want to load Win7 to OCZ Vertex2 SSD in AHCI which I configured in the bios and also selected 64-bit under power mgt bios screen.

Any thoughts? Presently hung up here hoping an expert can help me troubleshoot Sunday noon. Thanks!

Hiya

I've recently installed windows 7 RC on both my laptop and PC. Installed from a bootable DVD from PC Authority magazine. The laptop works absolutley fine, no problems at all.

I installed it on the PC today, all went fine. The only problem is, when I reboot, I get disk boot failure unless the bootable windows 7 DVD is in the DVD drive. The boot device priority must be set to CDROM first HDD second, and once that's the case windows boots just like normal.

It's fully activated etc etc, and I can't for the life of me figure out why this would happen. Requiring the boot CD every time just to start windows?

Oh and the HDD it's installed on is brand new, just arrived today, and like I say, installed without incident, runs without incident, just needs the DVD to get going. It's not the end of the world but it's a nuisence having to have the DVD in there every time I boot.

Any advice would be great

Regards

Paul

an update
I was reading around and it was suggested that I pop into disk management and make the c: (where win7 is installed) "active". I did this, rebooted, and now I get BOOTMGR is missing instead. I've tried a repair directly from the win7 DVD to no avail

a second update

after running the repair from the DVD a second time, it behaved differently to before. Now all the error messages are gone, it boots directly to windows without the DVD. YAY

hope this helps anyone else who comes across it.

Answer:Disk Boot Failure unless Win7 DVD in drive

For curiosity?s sake, did you have multiple hard drives on this machine?

I?ve seen an instance in XP where the system, boot, and active sections of the OS were on different partitions. I could get the system to boot if the XP cd was in the drive. I never ran across a fix other than reloading. As a rule now I always disconnect secondary drives when installing an OS.

Hi,I have an external USB Buffalo hard disk attached to my Lenovo E73 W7 Pro PC.If i boot with it connected then the PC won't boot through to Windows until i disconnect the Buffalo.I have been into the Bios and set the boot order to not only styart with the HD but also ignore USB and CD ROM.Interestingly before i changed the Bios it would stop the boot and when i disconnected the Buffalo i would get the option to go the bios; now that i have changed the bios although it still doesn't boot through to Windows, when i disconnect the Buffalo the Windows spalsh screen appears immediately. So..My thoughts are that the bios change has been a good thing and now there is a Windows option that needs to be changed to make it boot to Windows ignoring the Buffalo until it has started. Has anyone any advice please? Cheers,Simon

Help! I don't really know where to begin, so I guess I'll just try to explain this chronologically, as best I can.

While my Sony Vaio laptop was booting, I accidentally bumped the power bar it was plugged into. The power went out for a moment, then came back. My Vaio has refused to boot and gave me the following error message in white against a black screen:
A disk read error occured. Press cntrl-alt-delete to restart.
I did this, of course, and after a moment of the Sony Vaio start up animation, the same message came back again. I hit the power button and did the restart combination several more times and got the same result.

I then consulted your website and saw that other members had a similar problem. I tried to follow some of the advise that was given, but unfortunatly it will not go into safe mode. I actually tried every single "f" button (not with the restart combo, but actually turning it off, waiting 30 seconds, then starting it and quickly tapping the F1, F2, ect) and the only one that did not give me the same error message was the F2, pulling up the bios screen.

I'm not one to want to mess around with bios, or even safe mode for that matter, so I called a friend of mine that is very computer savy. I have the sony vaio recovery disks, so first we tried that. The disk did actually load, but it does not have an option that didn't include deleating every file on my hard drive, which would really break my heart.

Basically everytime I try to start the computer it gets to the black screen with the white text and it looks like it's going to start normally but then it stops and I get the message

Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter

I have tried to restart it and start the computer in safe mode but pressing/holding F8 does nothing in this situation! I think this is happening because my norton antivirus deleted something during a full system scan but not 100% sure. I think starting the computer in safe mode and then restoring the system to a previous restore point may fix the problem but I can't access safe mode!

Recuva works pretty well and the deep scan does a good job. I have used another which did a really good job although I don't remember which. Judging by what I have installed on the computer it most likely was UndeleteMyFiles or PC Inspector.

Make sure you save recovered data to a different disk to the one you're recovering from or you run the risk of overwriting yet-unrecovered data.

Hi fellas, this is my first post here and I hope one of you can sort me out.

I've basically just replaced the HDD in my Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop. that was the easy part. Now I have to get Windows working again, without a backup CD or USB and using an OEM product key.

I've done some research and as far as I can tell its not possible for me to use someone else's computer to create one of these, and I have no access to someone elses copy of win so I'm thinking of downloading windows 7 as a free trial of some sorts or a digital river copy thats still available for download, use this as a temporary OS until the Boot disks arrive from Dell (ordered yesterday and will take up to 30 days to arrive).

Am I right in thinking that this i the best way to go? And can I make a USB flash using a Mac? It's the only laptop I have available to me at the moment.

Many thanks and much appreciated!

Hey Everyone,

I have a PC that was custom built for me by a friend. I don't now what Information I need to provide, but I'll do my best to provide basic system info.

I have
Amd Athlon 3200+
2 GB of Ram
Windows XP sp2 (recently updated to SP3)
SeaGate 320gb SATA harddrive (brand new)

I also would like to note that I recently had my RAM replaced and my Hard-drive reformated by a friend. He reinstalled Windows and some other programs and saved a Image copy on a External Hard-drive. Later the Seagate Hard-drive started having problems so we sent out for Brand New replacement drive. I got the new drive and used Seagate HD tools to copy the Image from that to my new hard-drive. It worked fine for a few weeks, then it started having the following problems.

1. It randomly freezes, typically every 15-20min or so. Usually when I'm on the internet or using a IM service like MSN or Skype. When it freezes I can sometimes still do stuff in the program I was using when it froze. For instance, 1 time I was typing in MSN and it froze. I couldn't open any other programs or even click on icons...but I could move and resize the MSN chatbox and type in it. I can usually move the mouse pointer when it freezes, but I can't click on anything.

2. Occasionally, when it freezes it will suddenly un-freeze seconds before I get a Blue STOP screen. It usually says something like...

Hi

My main problem is that I cannot logon windows because for some reason my local password has changed or does not work at all.

I priorly tried figure out why win 10 is not running normally because I could not do anything in file explorer. Every time I right-clicked in file explorer it just froze up and win 10 refreshed itself to the main screen after about a minute.
I suspected a freeze conflict to be related to my dynamic video cards. I have onboard Intel 3000 and separate Radeon 6700 HD. I updated Radeon Catalyst drivers but no change in stability.

Next I unabled all non-windows services in task manager and rebooted my laptop. It could not boot up twice so win 10 tried to fix that automatically with no success. Then I tried to reboot windows 10 by booting it up with my manufacturer software on my system drive. After 15 minutes of installing it announces that it was unsuccessful.
Then it went to safe mode and I am stuck with password that does not work.
Strange thing is that several times I have entered different passwords or just hit enter after I get "wrong password try again" it says finally "welcome" and dots start circling concluding to a few moments (half a minute) later "wrong password, try again".
I have to add that I have fingerprint reader and I have usually used my fingerprint recognition in order to logon windows. Now that non windows services are unabled I cannot use my fingerprint option.

The background of where i am at is my computer was starting to become very slow on start up (30 mins). I'd turn off everything via MSconfig that was not required to run but it made no difference. In the end I decided to do a clean install of windows 7 to see if that would eliminate the problem. All my programs/files etc where saved on a 2nd hard drive so there was no issue about data. I followed the steps for a clean install, as per a forum guide found on this website, and everything seemed to go fine, if a little long (a couple of hours.)

On restarting the PC it got as far as the loading windows screen (with logo) and just hung there for a few mins before continously re starting. I tried:

1) Booting to safe mode...same result
2) Putting in Windows installion disk and changing BIOS boot order to boot from disk...same result.
3) I tried pressing F8 and attempting to lauch System repair...same result.

So I'm now completely stuck as to where to go next as literally the only thing I can get access to the the BIOS screen and the F8 advanced recovery menu - but anything I do after that goes no further than Windows Loading...

Windows is on a 64gb MLC SATA SSD
2nd 1.5tb Serial ATA 2
ASUS P7P55 LX Mobo
Intel I7 860 Quad Core (2.8GHz 8mb cahce).

Anybody help????

Hi.I've been reading forums all night and have seen this problem all over the place, a lot of it happening in the last few weeks. I'm possibly thinking its a spyware problem or a virus.So, last week I had a problem. I had gotten some spyware that deleted some dlls or something to that degree and prevented me from going into safemode. I did a system restore to a week prior, and was then able to go into safe mode and used Superantispyware and Malwarebytes to kill the spyware. I didn't have another problem until today.Today, I was using a web-browser to watch a TV show (nfl) online, and I got a random BSOD. It gave the typical generic recommendations about adequate disk space and driver-video adapters and a code ending in Ox804FB03c. Then I rebooted expecting to go back into safe mode to try another search, but it would blue screen on a normal boot and in attempting to go into safe mode. I saw this : IRQL_NOT_LESS_OK_EQUAL.I took out my RAM one by one to see if it was a problem : BSOD prevails. I took out my network card and video card and a second HD. Still BSOD on safe mode and on normal boot.I put in an XP cd to boot from disk and went into the BIOS to set it to boot from the CD first. It does boot from the CD but I never get the option to press "R" or anything like that I see recommended in most of the forums. The "Press any key to boot from cd" option comes up - I press a Key and it immediately starts cranking through a series of files that a... Read more

Answer:BSOD in Safe Mode, Can't boot Windows XP Normal or From Disk

I guess I have to ask...what's your point? I'm a little slow and I really don't understand the purpose of your post.

Are you just typing for finger exercise...or are you asking for assistance with a malware problem?

I have a Dell XPS 400 running XP (Home Media Edition) and all of a sudden this error message showed up on "the blue screen of death"

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation
or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration,
and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK/F to check
for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,0x871A5D10,0C0000102,0x00000000)"

I tried booting in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration (tried this first) and even start windows normally, but it always end back at the blue screen with the error!

I have a windows xp disk for XP professional service pack 3 that someone gave me, but it won't even boot to that disk.

More than anything I want the pictures on this hard drive , anything else isn't of much value, but would be nice to have if can be saved.

What do I do next? I don't have any other pc to try this drive in, I'm using an iPad to post in this forum!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Answer:Window XP won't boot, safe mode not working, don't have original XP disk

do you have a CoA label on the PC with the windows type and KEY on ?
is it also XP Pro ro XP home ?

did you change the boot order in the bios to boot from CD first

if you can borrow another PC with a DVD/CD writer - you can create a UBUNTU bootable DVD and run from the CD drive on the faulty drive and hopefully copy all your data off

------------------------------------------------------------------------

UBUNTU Stand Alone CD

Note the latest version of UBUNTU needs a DVD to use and boot from

if you only have CDs then you can use an older version, version 10 or 11 from this archive list
Old Ubuntu Releases
It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
goto The leading OS for PC, tablet, phone and cloud | Ubuntu and download the ISO Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu

You can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick
Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu

full details are here (Note this is for version 9 - so the start up options are slightly different )

Hi,
I am using a Professional Dell Laptop under Windows 7.
I am also using this computer booting on an external SSD with Windows 8 from the eSata port (with my private stuff).
On the regular HDD, I have 3 partitions (No letter: Reserved system, C: Win7, D: Data). I access only to Data partition.
I had 3 times the same strange problem:
After using Windows 8, the system is no longer booting in Windows 7 (BSOD). If I reboot in Windows 8, access to Windows 7 partition is denied.
I tried to change the permissions, it is not possible because it is greyed, but I can create a full access for "Everyone".
When rebooting, it seems to work but boot is never finishing (grey screen with the mouse active).
At the end, I found no other solution than restoring the partition from a backup image.
Is some of you understanding what is happening and what can be done to avoid that?
(for the moment, I am disabling the HDD from the bios, but obviously I am loosing the access to Data partition).

I am using an HP Pavillion DV9700 laptop
BIOS F.2C
AMD Turion 64x2 TL-60 2.00 GHz
2 GB on board
Windows 7 Home Premium, 32-bit OS, all updates installed

Somewhere, after a Win7 update many months ago, the problem started. I had no problems before. It started with the OS not recognizing the optical disk drive that came installed with the laptop. The computer's set-up BIOS recognizes the drive as being there. The optical drive does not show in Device Manager.

I tried changing out the disk drive, it did not help. Soon, Win7 would occasionally lock up at the boot screen, but work fine on a cold reboot following a lock-up. But then the lock-ups became permanent and cyclical. No amount of reboots would help.

I went to do a clean install using an external USB optical drive and accidentally discovered it cured the problem! The laptop will not lock up if the external USB optical drive is hooked up and turned on when starting the computer.

I tried a clean install of the operating system. I tried updating the drivers. Nothing helped.

Win7 always recognizes I had problems booting and sends the error messages to Microsoft.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Win7 Locks Up on Boot -- Related to CD-DVD Optical Disk Drive

If you remove the optical drive and leave it out, does the lock up on boot go away?

Does it lock up when Windows starts to load?
I assume it does not lock up on system boot because it is recognized in the BIOS.

I have a Toshiba C55t-A5123 that had a Windows 10 upgrade installed on to a wiped hard drive. (No going to Settings to revert back to previous OS.)
The CD/DVD drive,(I had changed boot order to look at the Optical drive first), with a Win7 install disk was not recognized at boot up to facilitate a complete new Win7 install over top of the current Win10 OS.

I re-wiped the hard drive and formatted it to NTFS, and then used the disk manager from another laptop to change it to GPT!
When I tried to use my Windows 7 Ultimate DVD to re-install (changed boot order so OD CD\DVD was first) but this C55t wont boot from the DVD! Now this is the same DVD that came with this unit but yet it wont boot the Win7 install DVD!!



I read where THIS Toshiba model (because Toshiba was in cahoots with Microsoft) has no provision in BIOS to switch to from UEFI to CSM, UNLESS the bios was updated to v 1.03 (I think that is the latest version)! I did disable "Secure boot" which was the only associated option!


I then created a GPT UEFI USB memstick with Win7 Ult ISO, which booted fine and installed Win7 Ultimate to the re-GPT'ed 500gb SATA hard drive.


But on reboot after Win7 Ult install the ONLY bootable media device found was the USB Win7 memstick???


This C55t-A5123 will only boot to the memstick and completely bypasses (changed boot order to make HDD first) the GPT HDD that has just had Win7 Ulitmate successfully installed!


If I let it boot to the USB... Read more

I tried to set up my desktop computer running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit to dual boot Windows XP Home. It didn't go as planned and now Windows 7 will not boot. I get the following error message:

"Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware. Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information."

I tried deleting the Windows XP partition and double check the boot order in the BIOS but no luck. I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me out. Thanks.

Answer:Failed setting up dual boot Win7/XP - cannot boot Win7

Set the Win7 HD first to boot in BIOS setup, after DVD Drive.

Boot the Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk, follow these steps to mark Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred if you have it) Active: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

Next boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered repair. If none offered or Win7 doesn't start after reboot, access System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair 3 Separate Times
to rewrite the System boot files to Win7 partition or it's System REserved boot partition.

If it fails after 3 times attempting to rewrite to SysReserved partition, change the Active flag to Win7 partition and try repairs again.

Hello everyone

In the last past few days I've encounter a serious problem with my desktop, it all started with laggy performance when opening a window/folder with lots of downloaded files, then when I left the comp for a few hours and came back the screen was black with nothing showing. Then I turned off the PC and turned back on it won't boot past the windows logo screen, tried running in safe mode won't work either, neither does repair, restore from the windows 7 OS disc or installing windows work. Tried disconnecting the SATA cable between my OS SSD drive and the mobo but windows still won't install, freezing at the set up is starting page. Was wondering have any here experience a issue similar to this or would happen to know the culprit behind it all, currently I'm stump on how to fix my PC. Any advice, opinions or reply will be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
