Blue screen error when attempting to reformat

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
After a long time running I decided to reformat my hard drive after backing up all my files. So I go to the bios set my boot order for the DVD-ROM first:

Here’s something that might be the cause of the problem. The DVD-ROM is actually set as a raid between my DVD/CDR and DVD-R and counts for my first boot device then my hard drive (WD 200GD Serial ATA). The reason for this might be because my primary IDE controller took a dump so I’m using the secondary on my motherboard.

Anyways it boots up again and goes through all the loading of drivers and whatnot but when it reaches "setup is starting windows" I get a blue screen of death, so I am unable to delete my partition and reformat as I am wanting to. The screen tells me to remove new hard drives or controllers (which I have not) and a few other things like chkdsk.
The error reference is: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0x0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000 )

So here I am stuck because I cant reformat, I don’t know if the fact that my optical drives are trying to be a RAID is cause of the problem (I tried unplugging one but to no result ) or something else, but I was wondering if anyone would have an help around this? Or any suggestions?

1)Disable the raid set
2)Make the Hard drive the first boot device.
then wait and see if BSOD happens again.
