If you can't boot from the CD you can't install the OS, unless of course, you 
made that 6 floppy set from bootdisk.com.  :-)

    Stop 0x0000007B or INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE
    WinXP can not locate the system partition or boot volume. This error may 
occur after repartition or upgrading of the disk controller. The boot.ini file 
may no longer point to the correct partitions or the hardware may not be 
configured properly
    Try the Recovery Console and use the Boofdfg command to repair the Boot.ini 
file.
    Boot from WindowsXP CD and "Repair" the Windows.

      Hey Guys,



      I need some suggestions.   I am using a Dell Optiplex GX240 computer with 
Windows 2000 Professional and today I was running Outlook Express and when I 
tried to reply to a message the system froze on me.   I used Ctrl+Alt+Del keys 
to bring up the Windows Task Manger and tried to kill all open programs, which 
I was successful except I could not kill Outlook Express.   So, I turned the 
machine off.   When it rebooted, I get a message on a blue screen with white 
fonts that reports 



      "STOP:  0X000007B    INACCESSIBLE Boot Device, check for viruses on your 
computer.  Remove any newly installed harddcrive or harddrive controllers.  
Check hard drive to make sure it is properly configured & terminated.  Run 
chkdsk /F to check for had drive corruption and then restart computer.   Refer 
to getting Started manual for more information on trouble shooting Stop errors."



      When Outlook Express froze and I tried to kill the program, I got a 
message that it was "debugging" and I should wait.   After 10 minutes I gave up 
and told the unit off electricity.    And that's when I get the Stop error.



      The error message says to check for virus;   but I cannot get to a 
prompt; not even in safe mode;   not even to Bios to check my settings.   I do 
recall that about 2 weeks ago, my system was "hijacked" and my Ad-aware & 
Spybot does not find the Trojan but I keep having to correct my "About: Blank" 
web page and all seems to work ok.   I should have found that hijacker and 
removed it from the registry.    Oh well;    when one procrastinates, one gets 
in hot water.



      Of course, since I cannot boot into safe mode, I cannot run Chkdsk /F.



      Any suggestions?
