Trying to troubleshoot a Lenovo IdeaPad laptop here. It suddenly began to bluescreen with 0x7b and iaStor.sys file. I was not able to boot in to any safe mode (stops at Classpnp.sys) or recovery (I also tried last known good configuration with no luck). In the BIOS I changed from RAID to AHCI and I am able to get in to the recovery (still no safe mode, etc).
In the recovery console, I tried chkdsk, sfc /scannow, and other commands from the command prompt. Also tried a system restore. All with no luck still.
As a test, I booted in to Acronis and backed up the entire disk and then restored it to a VM. The VM has the same issue which leads me to believe that it is a software/driver issue and not the physical drive or laptop.
At this point, I am looking for suggestions on what to try next. I was thinking of booting to Windows 7 disk (via usb since no cd drive) and trying a repair install. I have a backup of all files so I am not too concerned if something is lost as I can recover it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
