CAN'T EVEN BOOT!!! stop code 24 HELP
Posted on 2002-03-16
I have 2 hard drives. One runs W98 in a FAT32 partition. The other drive has 2 partitions. The first is for winXP and has NTFS and the other partition is FAT32. I have window's normal dual boot.
Well, as of today I cannot boot into winXP. I get a BSOD that says that I should run CHKDSK /F and shows the following error codes: 0x00000024
(0x001901FE, 0x81F89248, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
and I get the same BSOD whatever boot option I choose (safe, safe with command line, etc)
I found out that ErrorCode 24 is for corrupted drives or boot partitions but I just can't get in the command line or anything to do chkdsk and it will of course not work under W98 because it won't read NTFS partitions.
I refuse to just lose all data in my HD and reinstall Windows.... what do you suggest???
