0xc01a001d error code after installing sp1

After I successfully install SP1 for vista and restart is when the trouble starts. I get a black screen with this "!! 0xc01a001d !!"  then it is seems like it is scanning the registry but everytime it gets to 28141/92470 it seems to stop or get stuck at that point. The screen is black and looks exactly like this:

!! 0xc01a001d !! 28141/92470 (\Registry\Machine\COMPONENTS\DerivedData...)

IT stays that way until i manully press the power button to turn it off. Can any of you experts tell me why this is happening?
Thanks

I am not going to run in here and ask how to repair a problem with a PC unless I have exhausted all options that I have tried. Doing a restore and a repair  was one of the firsst things recommended when I googled the error message.Start up repair cannot fix the problem and restore will not work either.Sorry for sound rude. I am just frustrated. Please don't take it personal. I am sorry.
Thanks,

So it says if I can't do a repair or a restore that the only way is to restore vista. With that said can you tell me how to get to the reinstall on a toshiba  laptop?
thanks

you can order the recovery cd's
or upgrade to W7 - but i'm not sure that will work on  a corrupt OS    http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1596141&rpn=PSAD6U&modelFilter=A135-S2276&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

best is a fresh install imo


this one said a repair install from the cd helped : (do not choose upgrade - but install, and don't delete the partition)   :  http://www.freepchelp.co.uk/threads/7123-Window-Vista-Home-Edition-Booting-Problem

all others are in for a fresh install

Hello,
The error code that you mentioned - 0xc01a001d is an NTSTATUS code with a literal interpretation = STATUS_LOG_FULL and means that the log's size allocation is too small for the output generated or that there is insufficient HDD space available for Windows to write output logs to.

The fact that the registry key HKLM\Components\DerivedData is referenced along with parm 06 = "bad patch" tells me that your OS was somehow modified and Windows Vista security measures have taken over. I'm surprised that 0x80070002 didn't show up here.

If you cannot run system restore successfully nor system repair, your only option is to re-install Vista.

OR (and this would be a way better fix IMHO):

My research shows that the error is due to a log file jamming up. This is caused by something in the update process not going right.

I think it’s funny that if windows can’t complain to the log, it can’t continue to fix any problems.

So, to fix this problem here were my steps:

I booted a linux cd (Click to download Knoppix or Click to download Ubuntu)

The c: drive had 2 partitions /dev/hda1 an/dev/hda2

     I right clicked, mounted the hda2 partion on the desktop.
    Right clicked the hda2 changed it to write mode (If you generate an error saying windows did not shutdown cleanly: sudo ntfsfix /dev/hda2 then repeat steps 1 and 2.)
    I double clicked on the hda2 icon (or open nautulus /mnt/hda2)
    browse to the WINDOWS folder.
    Right click and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder (or alternatively copy it somewhere and delete it)
    Browse to the system32 folder
    Right click and rename catroot2 to catroot2.old
    Click the start gear and click logoff, shutdown
    Pull the Knoppix cd-rom from the drive.
    Boot from the hard disk and select startup repair.

This should get you to the point where windows Vista will run a repair and complete and reboot.

I would recommend you backup  your data to an external hard disk and then reformat the computer and setup from scratch as we are not certain what went wrong and don’t want to have to do this again in the future.

Would it be better just to buy a Windows 7 OS since my customer doesn't have the vista CD and format and install aftering backing up?

Please explain to me where I accepted my own comment. I awarded points to K_Wikes and Nobus. I am starting to rethink my commitment to PAYING annually for this site when there are several others who don't get so intrusive into why, what, who, where, etc. about the question I ask. I am not interested in one single point. I come here to have people who are more knowledgeable than I and need help with a PC problem and/or solution. I also pay for that service. I could write on and on and on but that would be wasting even more of my time like you have already done to many times to mention.
Unhappy subscriber to the admin's that run this site,

i agree that Windows 7 is a good idea (though the Vista with upgrades is nearly as good)
note that for a smooth running system, you want 2 GB Ram, at least
and i see you r point selection as you posted correct
