You receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" error message when you try to start your computer after you move the dynamic hard disk
When you start your Windows 2000-based computer, you receive the following Stop error message:
STOP: 0x0000007b (0xf881b84c,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)
This error message may occur if the primary disk group identity of the hard disk does not match the primary disk group identity that is stored in the registry. This mismatch may occur if all the following conditions are true: • You configure the hard disk that contains the system partition as a dynamic disk on a computer that is running Windows 2000.
• You remove the hard disk from the computer, and then install the hard disk in a second Windows 2000-based computer.
• You import the hard disk to a disk group that contains dynamic disks on the second Windows 2000-based computer.
• You return the hard disk from the second computer to the first computer.
To resolve this problem, use Registry Editor to delete the Primary Disk Group registry key from the registry of the computer that does not start. To delete this key, follow these steps.
