Dell Inspiron N5110
Dual boot: Windows 7, Windows 10 (anniversary)
My windows 7 boot configurations seemed to have checked out after I either resized the partitions using Aomei or after the upgrade to Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.
When I hit Windows 7, the screen would show that it recommends to do the Startup Repair. I launch that and it says "Loading Windows Files." Then it goes to the Windows 10 logo and shortly after, it goes blue screen with the code "WDF_Violation." I tried booting into Safe Mode but that leads to the exact same error.
I have a Dell DataSafe Local Backup recovery image so I booted it up. I see two options that might work for me:
- Restore computer and preserve my new or changed files
- Restore my computer
I don't want to nuke both Windows 10 and Windows 7 so which option should I choose? Does anyone have experience with this software?
I was also looking at this program: https://www.boyans.net/DualBootRepair.html
Did it work for anyone?
Finally, anyone know what WDF_Violation is?
Any help here is greatly appreciated!!
