Details about the error along with the system manufacturer.
The system in question is a Dell Inspiron 6000 bought 5years (approx) back. It has a 40GB HDD, 1.73P4 and 1Gb DDR1 Ram. I don't know how the error came about as it is not mine. I was called when the BSOD popped up. It had XP Pro SP3.
As of now, I am running the chkdsk /r again and it is @ 63%. I used Knoppix and tried removing couple of the updates that "might" have caused the crash, which I linked in my previous post. Turns out, they weren't there. That done, I have backedup the data on a flash-drive, so if at all I need to format the HDD (which I hope it does not come down to) I can.
I found one update titled "KB960225" and I tried the batch command, it did not work.
The exact error that is being displayed is:
Status of 0Xc000026c (0x00000000 0x00000000), with something about "Hardware Initalization Failed"
Edit: chkdsk /r does not return any error. This is getting hilarious. elle oh elle.
