I too have been fighting for a month to get into my drive with this same blue screen message except STOP:0x000000ED (0x827A2900,0xC000009C, 0x000000, 0x00000000) HOWEVER an MS Dos disc lets me see that the C drive is still there with all files as expected but will not change to D HDD nor will it accept either CD drives. Cannot boot from CD, installation from floppys also leads to a demand for CD.
