The Stop 0x00000024 message indicates that a problem occurred within Ntfs.sys, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives.
This could indicate a problem with the hard drive itself or it could be an issue with a corrupted system or data volume that is using NTFS. After researching this I found one solution was to try booting from the OS disk.
"If you receive a "stop 0x24" error message when you restart the computer or when you try to run Setup or Recovery Console, you may not be able to determine the cause of the problem. Instead, use one of the following methods to resolve the corrupted NTFS volume. "
"FAT or FAT32 File System
If your system partition is using the FAT or FAT32 file system, disconnect or turn off any data disks that contain NTFS volumes. This allows you to start back into the operating system to perform troubleshooting steps. If you can determine which NTFS volume is causing the boot problem, use the following steps:
Make sure the drive that contains the corrupted NTFS volume is disconnected, and then start Windows by using Safe mode.
Rename the %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old, and then shut down the computer (this action prevents the Ntfs.sys driver from loading).
Reconnect the drive that contains the corrupted NTFS volume.
Restart the computer, and then run the following command on the corrupted NTFS volume:
chkdsk driveletter: /f
NOTE: The Chkdsk tool has built-in support for NTFS and does not require the Ntfs.sys driver to make repairs.
After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
The computer should be operational again, and you can try to determine what caused the original problem. "
