    Re-writing my MBR made system unbootable

    Thanks for that but the stop I get is not "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE" but "STOP 0x0000007B (0x80786A50, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)". I am also puzzled by the fact that the Microsoft KB advises running a Fixit program or editing the registry when the BSoD prevents the...

    Re-writing my MBR made system unbootable

    I used to have a working multi-boot system but in an attempt to fix a problem (I can’t recall what it was) I rewrote the MBR and the entire system became unbootable. The Windows 8 version of EasyRE rescued the Windows 8 partition. When I tried to rescue the Windows 7 partition with the Win 7...

    Dual boot failure after Win XP repair

    My thanks to Terry60 for his swift reply. Apologies for the long silence. I switched to a more urgent problem. I followed the instructions and re-wrote the (Vista/7) MBR on the XP (active) partition and removed/added the XP entry in the EasyBCD boot menu. Win7 is now entered from the menu on...

    Dual boot failure after Win XP repair

    My dual-boot XP Win 7 system failed after I did a repair on the XP partition. XP was the first-loaded OS and Win 7 added (on a separate HDD) later. All worked using the Dual Boot menu added at Win 7 installation. I can understand what has happened as a result of doing the repair on xp...
