  [email protected] 10:42 30 Oct 2008

XP Home sp3 - working perfectly last night now the BSOD on bootup this morning.
I have tried last known good but no success and system restored back a few times via safe mode and I am now back where I was last night.
Boots into safe mode ok but sfc doesn't appear to run in safe mode.
Anything else I can try?

Hi Nuts.
It's too fast to know, just a flash of blue.

Sri for delay - weekly shopping.
No other info on the error line, exactly as I stated. The BAD reference could be "Sectors"?
I have been ploughing through the MS stuff with regard to the "7E" Stop but it's all getting a bit heavy.
I am currently working through this advice:

Thanks for the link baldydave, I was there before I gave my pension to the checkout....
Uhhhh, Hi Kingfisher!
So, another quiet evening at home trying to fix instead of working/playing :-(
Maybe this IS working? Let you know how I get on of course ;-)

It's worse now, merde!
Having read it may be a driver issue, I followed MS advice and looked at the drivers recently installed which were un-signed. This happened to be my Acronis program.
I disabled it then tried a reboot and now I am unable to get into Safe Mode.
The error message has changed though so I have made some progress arf arf arf. It's now a 7B error which points heavily at a driver issue.
I don't have the Repair option so I think I will get a new HDD and do a clean install on that then mount my other HDD's as slaves in order to recover the data, unless anyone has any other ideas? Get outside a bottle of wine perhaps...

I have tried the chkdsk via recovery console and although it advised me "it had found one or more errors on the volume" it still won't boot into safe mode.
I think I will go with my plan B and fit a new HDD.
Thanks for taking an interest.
