0x0000007B BSOD during Windows Install

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I hooked my old desktop up today, and booted it up. Not long after booting it up I grew tired with how slow my computer was running so I decided to reinstall WIndows Vista from scratch. However, I have been getting the BSOD after the install has completed when it restarts for the first boot up. I tried to also install Windows XP and still got the same thing.

However, I have been getting a specific BSOD with Windows XP. 0x0000007B, and I have been reading into it and I was hoping someone might be able to give me some words of advice to get around this problem.

Thank you!

Are you able to provide us with the dump file or full details of the BSOD you're getting?

Anyhow - and which I'm sure you'll probably know as well - since you said you've been reading up on the code, the 7B code could point to a various of different issues, but most oftenly from my experience it's due to drivers issues - given that this is a fresh install and I assume you havent gotten the time to get any virus infections on the computer(?), it's either due to data corruption/hardware failure or bad/outdated drivers, possibly the drivers for the hard drive controllers. My finger is still on driver issues though, so thats where I'd start.

First I'd do, given that you are able to enter into Windows? Is to update all drivers, especially the controller drivers and other main drivers for the motherboard and other vital components.

Do a test on you're OS HDD's health, for instance with HD Tune, to see if the HDD might be corrupted or have any bad sectors.

Possibly update the motherboards BIOS, although I'd find it unlikely that that's the cause.



Edit:

Just noticed now when I read thru your post again that you said that the 7B one were spesifically with Windows XP, so there were a various of different once with Vista? Could still be driver issues, but if you're getting any other BSOD's it would be nice to know which, as they could help pointing in the direction of a spesific components driver or faulty parts.

Sadly I have put the desktop on the back burner, because I'm unsure of how to proceed. I have tried three hard drives, two SATA and one IDE. I know all three hard drives are good, and they were recognized by my motherboard. I tried installing Vista on the two SATA drives, and XP on all three drives.

Vista would appear to install without a hitch, but then it would not boot into the OS after the install.

XP would just give me the BSOD that I was asking about.

I do have a RAID 5 set up (500GB x4), and I'm concerned I won't be able to recover the information in the RAID. The motherboard and installation discs for XP and Vista are both recognizing the RAID so it is still intact to my knowledge.

I am not sure what to make of this, because part of me feels my motherboard is shot. The reason I am doing a clean install is because I was running Vista and the install was bogged down from years of use, and I wanted to reinstall it to clean up the system so I could migrate what I have in my RAID to another location, and do a full wipe of the computer and upgrade some components.

Is there any way I could determine if my motherboard is the issue here? I'll try anything. haha
