Hi guys. My first post here. This is a bit beyond me and I've tried to find a solution myself but failed.



Spec:
ASRock P43D1600Twins-1394 Motherboard
Q6600 cpu
Geforce GTX260 graphics card
2GB DDR2 RAM
Xonar D1 soundcard
2x SATA Hard Drives


My system is a dual boot PC. XP on one drive and Vista on the other. The system was shut down properly before this issue. When I tried to boot XP (it boots to XP by default) I got the BSOD. I reset and the computer froze for a while on the screen asking me to choose between BIOs or Boot Menu. After a while it would instead attempt to boot my Vista drive. The first time it was successful in booting Vista. I reset, it froze on that screen, tried to boot Vista but then I got the BSOD again. Every time it attempts to boot Vista I now get the BSOD. It won’t even detect the XP drive (checked in the BIOS and boot menu).

The man in the shop said a couple of years ago that he had to hide the drives from each other to prevent crashes that were happening.

I have looked at the BIOs and the system only detects the Vista drive. I have not changed, installed or deleted any new software or hardware. I have tried replacing cables to no avail.

When I try to boot these drives in another PC I get exactly the same results, BUT if I take a different PC’s working hard drive and connect it, it doesn’t work either! I just get the BSOD again and it keeps going in an infinite cycle where by it attempts to boot, BSODs and resets. That’s the strange thing.

I’ve tried for hours to find a solution but this is well beyond my ability to fix. Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

ok,when the blue screen appears what error is it giving?

can you boot in safe mode?
I can't boot to safe mode, I get the same error and blue screen. The error reads:

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:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information:

***STOP:0x0000007B (0xFFFFFA60005AF9C0, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

ok,set your bios to boot from disc,

press any key to boot from disc,let it load.once it has loaded ,click on repair my computer,also that error you are getting is got to do with a driver?you can look at this video ,first try to repair with the disc
Ok I booted from the disc, however it never loads. I first get a screen with a grey bar filling up saying, Windows is loading files. After that all I get is a screen that says Microsoft Corporation at the bottom with a green loading bar. I've tried this twice on two different disc drives.

1. Just to update you, I have now been able to run the 'repair windows' feature. It's still running and I've yet to see a result. I'll let you know what happens.

2. Sadly I have no external hdd case to test this. I did try to conect the hdd's internally with no luck.
