I run a Toshiba P300-150.

Two physical harddrives.

One drive has two partitions.
Xp and Win7

When the laptop switches on I get the boot choice.
With both Win7 and XP I get this blue screen.

0x0000007B (0xF78AE524, )xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

I dont have a WinXP or Win7 CD/DVD anywhere. I have instead taken the offending drive out of the laptop, put it into the second drive slot of another similar Toshiba running Vista and ran Check Disk across both disks. I believe on both occasions it found and fixed something.

After reinstalling the drive I still get the same blue screen.

Any ideas?

Ill take out some ram next and see what happens.

Taking one ram chip out and then replacing that with the other one hasn't worked.

With the offending drive in the similar Toshiba I get the same errors.

I can see the XP and Win7 partitions from the similar Toshiba's Vista OS.

"Other computer

With the offending drive in the similar Toshiba I get the same errors."

By that I mean when I boot into either 7 or XP in the similar Toshiba.

Hard drive from other Toshiba boots up in mine so I think its safe to say that rules out a hardware failure.

Ill take what ever files I need to off the Windows 7 partition and see if the recovery console that is built into 7 can work.

manufacturers Harddrive Diagnostics to check the HDD has not got a physical fault.

Has this problem only just started when you made it dual boot?

0x0000007B errors are caused by driver, virus, or hardware issues
it means it cannot boot into Windows (obvious I know)

Out of interest, how did you install W7 if you haven't got it on CD/DVD?

If it was a download from microsoft then could you burn it to DVD

Thanks for the reply.

Ill use the diagnostic took as soon as I can.
I am backing up some data off it so I can only imagine that the drive is ok if I can do that, or at the very least it is what I hope.

I have been dual booting for quite a long time.

I was however using the HDMI output on both XP and Win7 and I was trying to combat problems with very boor clarity. Though, all I did was change settings.

In my infinite pool of wisdom I misplaced the CD's for XP and Win7.
