I have been working on getting a Dell Precision 370 up and running and have had to canabilize another to get it up and running.

I thought I would use the hard drive out of a desktop I had retired years ago and knew it had xp on it.

unfortunately I am now getting a bsod with the following stop code shortly after the splash screen appears.

 

*** STOP: 0x0000007B (OxBA4C3524,OxC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

 

I have tried booting into all different modes.

Please help me I would just reinstall windows but I dont have the disk to do so

Thanks in advance

This error can occur if the registry entries and drivers for the mass storage controller hardware are incorrect or not installed. The PnP-ID information for the mass storage controllers that are in the computer must be in the registry before startup so that Windows XP can initialize the correct drivers.

 

When you install Windows, the installation routine builds the HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) to match the underlying hardware it sees in the computer. This is why you usually cannot simply take any old hard drive with Windows on it and pop into any other old PC and expect it to work. More often than not, the underlying hardware is so different that you have to at least do a repair install so that Windows can attempt to alter the installed Operating System to match the installed hardware.

Hi

 

You can't just use a machines hard disk on another system as a boot drive unless both system have same motherboard. Different motherboards use different chipset and disk controllers. Windows need the exact same disk controller (as a minimum ) to successfully boot . You need to format and re-install Windows on the new machine.

Is there any way to do a repair without a disk??

 

I believe the hard drive might have some data which might need to be saved. I would prefer to save what i can without  a fresh installation of windows. A repair install would have been the easiest route I believe but as I said above I dont have the disk to do so... I think the harddrive contains XP home and the computer has a XP pro key so i dont think the disk i plan on buying will work for repairing the current install.

 

Sorry for the oddball request and thanks for the help guys.
I saw another thread on this site which involved another dell with the same problem which was saved, but it was not a frankenputer like mine.

 

Here is the link

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/405193/blue-screen-stop-0x0000007b-computer-wont-boot/

 

I tried the NTBR_USB program mentioned on the second page thinking it might be the same problem but could not get it to work when burned to DVD

is there a similar process i could follow to get this one fixed?

 

Thanks again

1) It is possible to attach the hard drive to another computer's USB port via an inexpensive adapter (like this) and then use Windows Explorer to copy whatever files and folders you like off of the old drive.

 

2) If you can borrow a disk, you might try XP's No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild Option

unfortunately funds wont allow purchase of a $5 replacement disk or sata to usb adapter... (I know I shouldnt try to fix a computer unless there is extra money) I would like to have it up and going within the next couple of days even if I have to do it the way that seems impossible is there a way to use ubuntu to get at the HAL and other files that may be corrupt and attempt to fix them by replacing them with known good files?

 

Please understand my persistance... Im trying to get out from underneath a dying laptop running vista... at the earliest convenience.

 

Thanks for the suggestions

nope everybody i know is already using windows 7 or xp pro and has lost the disk... Im in a big pickle until i can get funds rebuilt.

 

I have gone so far as to ask to borrow a hard drive with xp pro on it to make an attempt at makeing a bootable disk and try to fix the installation on the non working harddrive but that doesnt even sound like it would work.
