[SOLVED] Blue Screen Error with 0x0000007B, cannot get to command prompt, Win XP

Q: [SOLVED] Blue Screen Error with 0x0000007B, cannot get to command prompt, Win XP

Hi,

My system has three OSes. Two Linux versions and Win XP-SP3. All of them are on different hard-disks of their own. On boot, i specify, which HD to boot from, in the boot menu from BIOS and accordingly boot from the respective Hard disk.

Most of the time, I use Win-XP. While shutting down the PC, i noticed that automatic updates were being installed. I accidentally happened to switch-off the power. Eversince, next boot, when i specify the Windows HD on boot menu, windows XP logo comes up and a blue screen appears and the system reboots to boot from Linux Disks (Default if I don't specify any disk from boot menu). I tried last working configuration, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt etc. But, same symptoms. I tried booting with WinXP CD. It tries loading the setup files and then comes to the blue screen with 0x0000007B error.

From, linux, i'm able to mount and see all the data and contents of the windows Disc.

Please help me to fix this. I need windows up and running badly. Thanks in Advance.

Please note, I do not have a floppy drive.

regds.,

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Blue Screen Error with 0x0000007B, cannot get to command prompt, Win XP

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.)

Welcome to TSF, vrkrao :)

Part of Windows Update would include the monthly MSRT scan for viruses. If an infection was found in a System file like atapi.sys and removed by MSRT, it would lead to the 0x7B error you now see because the System file that was infected and now broken, is needed to boot Windows or that the (still infected) MBR points to a file that's been removed or modified.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...ils.aspx?id=16

The MRT.log (assuming it's written before shutdown), found in the Windows\Debug folder, should enable you to check whether the above fits your scenario, if so, it should detail which files were infected.

Hello everyone

Recently a problem has arisen with my system.

Previously I have been doing work that requires me to unplug my network connection and I need to check my IP address each time I plug it in again. I guess it's not set for static IP.
Anyways to do this I usually go into Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig'

Now however I just get "'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

The directory is the same as its always been, I can change it but it doesn't seem to matter what it is.

I've checked many other posts and is there something possibly wrong with my PATH variable? I used the command 'echo %PATH%' and it works, the list it gives is very garbled however.

I'm not sure what might have made this problem arise, but I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks!

Hi all. I'm posting here because the hdd is most likely causing the problem.

I put together a pc. Everything is new except the hdd, cd rom, and floppy. It turns on, i can get into bios, but if I don't choose to get into bios a few secs later I get this blue screen error-
0x0000007B(0XF78AE640,OXC0000034,0X00000000,0X00000000). It says that there was a problem and the computer has been turned off to protect from damage, etc. Then it gives the above number and says to check for viruses on hdd, check hdd and hdd controllers, and to remove any new hardware.

I think that the cause of the problem is that there were too many hardware changes done at once or windows doesn't have the drivers for the new hardware. This is a hdd from my other computer, and right now I have Windows XP Pro installed.

So, how can I fix this? I mean..I know there has to be a way to install a hdd from another computer. Thanks.
 

A:0x0000007B Blue Screen Error at Bootup

Unfortunately, there is no simple way to transfer an HDD from one motherboard to another. Most savvy people wouldn't even dare it.

This is exactly the behavior to expect from such an upgrade.

If you want to keep trying, see if you can go into Safe Mode by pression "F8" just before the Windows logo appears.
If you can get into Safe Mode, you'll have to get into Device Manager and remove all the hardware of your old stuff. As well as any startups relating to old hardware.

Basically, XP has to rebuild its driver information, its HAL, and other such files. If it can't, well, you see here.

Backup and reload is the best option.

I'm having an issue that I've been working on for a while and its driving me nuts. I caught a virus a few weeks back (I think, couldn't actually find one) that filled up my C drive to capacity. I decided to just reformat and reinstall XP but everytime I try I get a stop error 0x0000007b. I googled it but haven't really gotten anywhere because I don't think its a harddrive or a driver issue and I'm a bit leery of playing around with flashing my BIOS.

I know it isn't my harddrive because I removed it and tested it with another and am getting the same error. I also checked my BIOS settings, with only one harddrive I don't use RAID (altho it is an option) so I don't think its a driver issue. I was able to install Linux and now I'm running Vista, although I don't really know what that tells me except that everything physically seems to be working fine. Also, I've twice now gotten a 'boot disk failure, insert system disk...' error prior to Vista starting up and then after I restart it worked fine again.

Sorry I don't have the exact specs on my computer. The motherboard is a Gigabyte with a 3ghz Pentium D chip with 1 Gig of ram (1 stick). Both harddrives I tried were western digital (one a 40 gig, the other was a 160, both IDE drives). At this point I don't even know if its a software or hardware problem - not too good with computers, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!

Hello, I have an HP Pavilion g series laptop (running win7) that is in a continuous restarting loop. This happened after the computer auto updated (windows update). I do not know what was updated, but now every time the laptop starts up it seems to be in a continuous rebooting loop after the windows logo then a blue flash. I am unable to go into safe mode or any other mode as I keep getting redirected to a page that gives me two options:Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally.

If this is your 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 you hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive curruption, and then restart your computer.

A:Help with blue screen auto reboot, Stop: 0x0000007B error screen

Bug Check 0x7B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

The INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE bug check has a value of 0x0000007B. This bug check indicates that the Microsoft Windows operating system has lost access to the system partition during startup.





Quote:
Cause

The INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE bug check frequently occurs because of a boot device failure. During I/O system initialization, the boot device driver might have failed to initialize the boot device (typically a hard disk). File system initialization might have failed because it did not recognize the data on the boot device. Also, repartitioning the system partition or installing a new SCSI adapter or disk controller might induce this error.

This error can also occur because of incompatible disk hardware. If the error occurred at the initial setup of the system, the system might have been installed on an unsupported disk or SCSI controller. Some controllers are supported only by drivers that are in the Windows Driver Library (WDL). (These drivers require the user to do a custom installation.)

So my wife shut down the old COMPAQ with XP SP3 and of course now it will not boot.

I was reinstalling windows on my computer but the power turned off during the installation so when I restarted the computer to retry the installation I got the blue screen with the error message that said STOP 0x0000007B. I figured the harddrive got damaged when the power went out so i went out and bought a new Seagate Baracuda 500GB SATA harddrive and tried to install windows on it but I got the same error after the cd finished loading all of the files. I next tried disconnecting the harddrive altogether and just tried the install without any harddrives attached hoping that it would load the files but still take me to the next screen which says no harddrives found but instead I got the same error again.
The exact error is:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF8981524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

There should be an option at the beginning of the install process to load the SATA drivers, the Stop error suggests that it's looking for a non-existent drive as once it gets so far, without the SATA drivers it can no longer find the drive.

While attempting a system restore on a desktop running Vista (x64 version) the system apparently froze when attempting to "restore registry". Eventually the system ended up reaching the blue screen of death with the following:

At this point, it doesn't matter what I attempt, I've tried the "start windows normally" option, the "launch startup repair (recommended)" option, neither loads windows. I've tried booting with safe mode, doesn't work.

Since this is a Gateway desktop having the issue, it of course didn't come with a Vista recovery disc. So I downloaded the recovery disc files from the internet, and put them on a USB thumb drive instead of burning them to a cd/dvd. And yes I made the flash drive bootable.

So I startup the Gateway desktop, go into Boot Settings and choose the USB option.

I found this on the internet somewhere, might be useful:

2. Select "Repair Your Computer" from the screen. Click Next.

3. Select a language then click next. (Windows will now search for installed operating systems. Select it and click Next.

4. In the System Recovery Option box thingy, click Command Prompt

5. Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd and press enter

6. If Bootrec.exe runs successfully, you will see the installation path of the Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

7. If Bootrec.exe does not find any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it .Do this by typing the following commands.
Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup - press ENTER

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old - ENTER

Bootrec /rebuildbcd - ENTER

8. Restart the computer and see if that helps. If not, you may need to reinstall Windows. You can install Windows from using a proper Windows disk (not downloaded off torrents) and then select 'Upgrade', So your documents and settings and programs dont get deleted (I think selecting upgrade will keep your stuff, if not, then you will need to reinstall Windows cleanly)

I am writing a VBA macro in Excel and have hit a wall. I am trying to get excel to open a command prompt and make it execute a command. The problem I am having is if I try to do anything but open another program, it throws an error back at me.

I can open the command prompt using:
Code:
Call Shell("cmd.exe" & dosCmd, vbNormalFocus)
I can also open Acrobat which is the program I need using:
Code:
Shell "C:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat\acrobat.exe", vbNormalFocus
However if I simply wanted to open a PDF file, I have the code to that without opening a command prompt.

I need to open the PDF document on a specific page, and to my knowledge the only way to do this (apart from manually) is to use the command prompt. However I have no idea how to get VBA to put the command in the command prompt, hit enter and then close the prompt.

There are 2 commands that need to be executed in DOS (I'm not sure if there is a way to combine the commands)

They are:

Code:
cd c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 9.0\acrobat
and

Code:
start acrobat.exe /A "page=10=Open Actions" "M:\Full Scores\allegro.pdf
These open the pdf document called allegro on page 10.

I am completely stuck. Out of ideas. I've searched the length and breadth of the internet and can find nothing to point me in the right direction. So I was hoping one of you fine people could. Thank you so much, James

I have a utility I run on some customers' machines that requires being run from safe mode. I already have the utility automated via batch, and would like to just run one SFX app and move on to the next machine, knowing that this app will reboot the machine into safe mode w/ command prompt, run my utility, and reboot the machine back into normal mode (the standard shutdown -r -t 01 is easy enough, but there are no modal options!). Also, if this can be done, how would I then make sure that the current user logs in automatically, rather than have safe mode stop at the log-in screen?

The utility in question is a simple "Common Software Package" which includes some software such as Reader and Flash. Some of the software included cannot be installed while an antivirus is running (at least any that have tamper-protection) due to the registry editing involved, but are completely positive in nature (one such software package simply checks the current registry vs. a backup it takes on each shutdown to look for any discrepancies, adjusted for installed software, of course). The packages do not require Windows Installer service to be running, so I have found SM w/ CP to be the best option.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Hey Guys,

I have an HP Compaq NC6320 laptop and I'm having some major problems with it.

I currently have a Weston Digital WD1600BEVT 160GB Sata 2.5" drive installed, with 1.5GB DDR2 RAM.

i tried installing XP Pro and I have been getting blue screens with all kinds of stop messages.

Basically the laptop gets to 100% of install, then reboots to start the windows based install and it blue screens with this error.

I ran Memtest which didnt show any faults, then downloaded the WD Data Lifeguard Diag system - ran the quick test and passed, ran the extended test and passed then formatted with 0's which passed.
Pulled the DVD drive and replaced that, and changed the XP disc I was using (I have 4 different discs).

Tried install again, same fault - pulled the memory and installed new memory - ran memtest again, no fault, tried install again and same fault....

The only thing I havent done is replace the HDD but I dont have a spare floating about so just wondered is this likely to be the HDD even though the test shows no fault, or is this going to be something much worse?

Thanks in advance
 

A:blue screen ''stop: 0x0000007B'' help.

The problem may be related to SATA Native Mode.

To disable SATA Native mode:

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

Upon booting, Enter the setup menu (F10)

==> System Configuration

==> Device Configurations

==> SATA Native Mode - Disable it

-------------------------------------------------
Save your settings and reboot. You should be able to install XP now. After installation, you can enable it back.

Post back with results.

Usual cause:
Initialization of the I/O system failed (usually the boot device or the file system).
To troubleshoot Stop error 0x0000007B
1.
A boot sector virus frequently causes this Stop error. Using a current version of your antivirus software, check for viruses on your computer. If you find a virus, perform the steps required to eliminate it from your computer. See your antivirus software documentation for these steps.

2.
Remove any newly installed hardware (RAM, adapters, hard disks, modems, and so on).

3.
Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List to verify that all your hardware and drivers are compatible with Windows 2000.

To see the most recent version of the HCL, visit the Microsoft Web site:

http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx

4.
If you're using a SCSI adapter, obtain the latest Windows 2000 driver from the hardware vendor, disable the sync negotiation for the SCSI device, verify that the SCSI chain is terminated, and check the SCSI IDs of the devices. If you're unsure how to do any of these steps, refer to the device documentation.

5.
If you're using IDE devices, define the on-board IDE port as Primary only. Check the Master/Slave/Only settings for the IDE devices. Remove all IDE devices except for the hard disk. If you're unsure how to do any of these steps, refer to your hardware documentation.

Try running chkdsk /r.   Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.  Type Y in new screen, hit Enter.  Reboot the system, the command will execute...on completiion, the system will automatically try to boot into Windows.
 
Alternatively...to run chkdsk /r from the recovery console...just enter the command chkdsk /r, without any additional modifications.
 
AFAIK, there is no such command as chkdsk /p /r...chkdsk /p is the command for running a read-only command (with no attempted repair), while chkdsk /r is the most complete chkdsk command and attempts to do everything that chkdsk /f does, while also attempting to recover file data which may be in bad sectors.

hi there,

Built my first PC yesterday. Spec as follows:

AMD dual core 4600

corsair value RAM 1GB DDR2 PC5300

250GB SEAGATE barracuda sata II 300

ASUS M2N-E SLI GREEN motherboard

geforce 8800 320mb.

Worked on first attept at turining it on. installed XP last night without any problems. Got it verified and then began downloading updates once i had some AV running. As soon as i had to do my first restart the PC refused to go into windows again. It came up with this screen:

I did get into windows via safe mode twice i tihkn but couldn't find the problem.

Then it just refused to even go in via safe mode.

Spoke ot a techno mate and we decided a full format had to be done!

did that last night and all installed fine. So as it was late, i turned the PC off.

This evening i burnt a cd with AV and firewall to install prior to getting on the net. Turned on the PC and went straight into windows, no issues at all.

Installed my firewall and AV, did the restart and i went back to the sae mblue screen as above.

The PC loads up to the bit where it says 'XP' with the little green bar moving across showing it is loading (i have pre SP2.) but loads for about twice the normal time and then goes straight to the blue screen.

I have moved the RAM to all the different slots and tried it but still get the same problem.

Anyone got any ideas as i am at a loss!

have you tried just leaving the command window open?
(cmd in start bar search box and hit enter)

It's possible whatever is running the script will close the window by design. However if it doesn't actually contain the exit command the window should remain open so you can see what's happening.

I received a new laptop at work (XP Pro) and every time I execute the command prompt, it is in full screen mode.

For example, I go to Start -> Run and within the "Open" text box I type "cmd" the entire screen is filled instead of just a window.

However, if I create a shortcut to the c:\\windws\system32\cmd.exe executable and then right click on "properties" on this icon, the "Display Options" within the "options" tab says "window" instead of "Full screen"

This is a nuisance since I have an automated script that changes IP address configuration on the laptop when it is in the internal network as opposed to the external network. When I launch this script, the output is in the command window and it is inconvenient to have this full screen instead of in a small window.

Does anyone know how I can adjust this?

It is probably something simple.

I found this on microsoft hope your computer is xp. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324103
edit... here is some more stuff I seen.

A BSOD can also be caused by a critical boot loader error, where the operating system is unable to access the boot partition due to incorrect storage drivers or similar problems. The error code in this situation is STOP 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE). In such cases, there is no memory dump saved. Since the system is unable to boot from the hard drive in this situation, correction of the problem often requires booting from the Microsoft Windows CD. After booting to the CD, it may be possible to correct the problem by performing a repair install or by using the Recovery Console (with CHKDSK).

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.

This is almost certainly due to upgrading your BIOS. First, backup your data and Registry to a second disc or CD/DVD just in case of any problems.

Configure your BIOS so that CDROM is the first boot device.

Insert the Windows XP installation CD then restart your computer.

When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

You will then get a 3 item menu:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press ENTER.

On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement screen, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

Select your current installation of Windows XP in the box, and press R to repair Windows.

Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to reinstall Windows XP.

After you repair Windows XP, you may have to reactivate your copy of Windows XP.

It's not an ideal mode for my flat-screen monitor which has a native resolution of 1280x1024 - so for a DOS prompt in Full Screen mode a better resolution if it's available would be 640x512 or 1280x1024... so that each pixel is used a whole number of times.
