0x0000007B BSOD after windows install

I know this has been posted here and all over the internet in the past...and that's where my problem lies actually.

i can't find a solution that works!

My problem:
After going through the installation of windows XP Pro SP2 on a SATA HDD while using the Latest Nvidia SATA controller during installation (pressing F6, etc.) windows installs fine. (i have an nForce motherboard)

After the install, when windows is booting up (screen with the logo and a bar below it) it loads for about 2 seconds, then gives me a BSOD with the 0x0000007B error and restarts.

I've been looking non-stop for a fix for the past 14 hours for a solution, but couldn't find anybody who has the same problem as me actually...

I've tried re-installing from scratch. I've tried repairing windows. Both of those methods don't work...i really can't think of what else it could be.

I've also tried to toggle the RAM, but that doesn't do anything...

I've browsed the Microsoft databases about the BSOD and such, but haven't found a solution that works.

my Specs:
EVGA 790i Ultra SLI Mobo
Seagate Baracude 200GB HDD
EVGA 9800 GTX Video Card
Intel Q6700 CPU

Thanks in advance to anybody who can help.

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Has windows ever ran good on this pc before? Is the BIOS seeing the complete 4GB of ram? Are you using a 64bit OS?
Brand new PC other than the Hard Drive which was used in my old PC without any problems what-so-ever.

The BIOS is seeing the 4GB

And it's a 32bit Windows XP SP2

and as i stated in my original post, i already looked at all the microsoft stuff...with no resolutions.

if this helps: i get a 0xC0000034 error which is a STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND error...and it most likely pertains to the drivers of the SATA HDD Controllers.
Go see if you can find updated SATA drivers
i got the latest and greatest SATA controller drivers from nvidia and used them during the installation of windows...

my theory is that it uses them to install then afterwards discards them and ignores the floppy drive (with the drivers in it)
Disconnect everthing external to the computer except the monitor.

Mouse, Keyboard, speakers, lan wire, etc.

Then try to bootup.

just tried that...didn't change anything :(
You also have to set your bios to IDE emulation, not AHCI or RAID.
i figured out it's not a hardware issue as Vista installs and runs just i guess i have no choice but to stick with, thanks guys for all your help.
