I'm running a Win XP Pro SP3 box.
When windows loads, I get stop error 0000007B.
(0xF78AA524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
No other info is given.
I think it may be a corrupted MBR??? I had to fix the MBR via Recovery Console a 4-5months ago.
I reboot the computer with the Wix XP Pro installation CD attempting to get to the recovery console.
While in the Windows Setup phase of the install I get a stop error 0x000007B (0xF78AA534, 0xCOOOOO34, 0xALLZEROS, 0xALLZEROS)
and pci.sys - pci.sys address f748e0bf base at f74870000 date stamp 3b7d855c.
The last message I see when windows is loading preinstallation files is: "Windows is starting...
I don't have backups of the C drive, but I have a Win98 boot diskette to DOS. Chkdsk and scandsk found no errors. I also have MBRTOOL.exe but no mbr backups. I can't even reinstall windows because it dies immediately before the steup/recovery console screen.
I don't have anything except a busted system. LOL!
This is occurring on a ozc 60MBSSD drive.
Any ideas on how to fix this error without getting a new HDD.
