K...I'm working on a Sony Vaio CR300 Series laptop with Windows Vista (32 bit). When it boots, it goes to this blue screen with the STOP "0x0000C1F5 (0x0000000 .... etc, etc ) message. It Does the same when you try to boot into safe mode. I have the Manufacturer Recovery discs as well. I boot through the DVD Drive, and it loads the files, and shows the vista loading bar, but it still comes up with this same blue screen. Of course there isn't any OS disc, so I can't access any repair options.

Microsoft has released a hotfix tool, but I can't access any command prompt or windows boot up to run the hot fix.

What would be your recommended course of action? Or anything else to try?

Thanks in advance!


EDIT: Yes, I have seen where you can download and create a Vista Repair disc, but it would take a super long time to download on my connection

I've seen a fix for this with a Dell that involves slipstreaming SP1 into the installation DVD.
I've also seen a fix that requires a full reformat of the hard drive in order to rewrite the disk info that's causing this error.
I have seen the hotfix, but it requires that you get into Windows in order to do it.

If you'll notice in this article ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946084 ) the workaround is to remove the offending drive or to format it.

Here's a suggested workaround (haven't tried it myself): http://www.delmartian.com/nullpointers/Wor...S-KB946084.html
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
