    I saw the 0x0000007B BSOD caused by trying to install XP on a disk hard while the BIOS is designating the reader as AHCI instead of IDE. XP has no native AHCI drivers, resulting in a stop 7B. Unless the PC had originally Vista or Win 7, but it might be useful to check that it is not likely.

    If the BIOS is set to AHCI, you could do one of three things (depending on whether your PC has a floppy drive)...

    1 find the Setup F6 disk on AHCI support at installation time (start with the manufacturer's website if you do not already have such a thing). Watch the very hit F6 prompt early in the installation process.

    2. change the setting in BIOS on IDE / ATA

    3. create a new "slipstreaming" installation disc drivers AHCI in the existing installation disc, see http://www.nliteos.com/index.html

  • XP, black screen with the msg of boot errorm insert disc drive system & hit enter, does that mean?

    When you feed on my PC I get a black screen with the "Boot disk error msg; "Medallion system disk & press enter" what does that mean? I don't have the original CD or a recovery disk, what can we do?


    This means that your hard disk contains an error, or the start-up phase damaged operating system. If you have any bootable media, you must visit certain computer services near you.

    Maybe just an idea - you have a floppy drive? Maybe you have inserted the floppy in the floppy drive. If the answer is Yes - Remove the floppy disk and restart your computer.

    1 how long have you been faced with this problem?
    2. don't you make changes on the computer before this problem?

    Start the computer by using the Microsoft Windows XP recovery console, and then perform a check disk on the file system.

    To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Insert the Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM or DVD - ROM drive, and then restart the computer. Select the required options to start the computer from the CD-ROM or DVD - ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
    2. once the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    3. If your computer is configured to dual-boot or multiple boot, select the appropriate installation of Windows XP.
    4. When you are prompted to do so, type the administrator password and press ENTER. NOTE: In Windows XP Home Edition, the administrator password is blank by default.
    5. at the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER: cd system32
    6. type the following command and press ENTER: chkdsk /r /p
    7. remove the Windows XP CD in the disc drive.
    8. Type exit to restart your computer.

    Important: Running chkdsk on the drive if bad sectors are found on the disk hard when chkdsk attempts to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost

    Hi AndyCantore,

    Follow these steps:

    Step 1: Start the computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists.

    Start your computer in safe mode


    Step 2: If the problem does not persist in safe mode, perform a clean boot to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After completing the steps in the clean boot troubleshooting, follow the link step 7 to return the computer to a Normal startupmode.

  • Start window manager: sometimes when I started my PC I have a black screen with the Windows boot manager at the top.

    Sometimes when I start my PC I have a black screen with the Windows boot manager at the top.  Although there are several options available, that nothing happens no matter what keys I hit and the only option is to shut down the computer and restart completely.  Sometimes the Boot Manager page turns and my office sometimes opens fine.  I've updated with everything Microsoft has Windows Vista and I still get this screen.  Anyone has any ideas.

    Do a startup repair and see if that fixes it:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.


    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:


    ISO Burner: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

  • HP Pavilion HPE h8 - 1260t CTO: stuck at the screen with the words "Press ESC for Boot Menu" on the bottom

    I unplugged the graphics card to clean dust. After that I connected everything again, he stuck to the blue screen with the words "Press ESC for Boot Menu" on the bottom. If I press ESC at the beginning, it will go to a black screen and it will show the basic information of the computer (information about the processor and memory). It also show this black screen, "Press ESC for Boot Menu" on the bottom and it will show "Start menu" in the lower right corner. If I press F8 at the beginning, it's going to be the same black screen, but it does not "Start menu" show in the lower right. If I press F10 at the beginning, it will go to the same black screen, and it will show "setup" in the lower right. Can someone help me solve this problem? And thank you very much!

    So I suggest to look at the following and try to 'Clear the CMOS settings' as described at the bottom of the page: HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - specifications of the motherboard, IPISB-CH2 (Chicago).  Then see if there is no change at all.  If there is no improvement, then use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp, fill in the form, create a folder for your question and then use the information to contact HP.

How to fix?  3 updates failed to install: KB2779562, KB2705219 and KB2722913.  Constantly configures updates during startup and shutdown.  Takes a long time for the two workers.  Can anyone give advice?

    To decode 0 x 80070002. X 0 means that it is a hexadecimal number, 8 , error, the first 7 means it a windows error and the rest of Eastern 2, the number, the Windows error.
    To search for the error message we need to decimal format. Start the Calculator (Start - All Programs - Accessories - calculator) and choose the menu display - scientific, then the menu display - Hex. Enter 2 Menu display - decimal. It will say 2.
    Start an command prompt (Start - All Programs - Accessories - command prompt) and type
