I have a blue screen of death [0x0000007e] . I can still boot into safety mode but system restore doesn't work. I've had the hardware checked out in a shop .The drive, memory,CPU all fine.
I've run anti virus, spyware and registry fix progammes but to no avail.
So I have a couple of questions:
A] Before the reinstall can I try anything else ?
B] I have two drives one is a 40 gig which was windows on it , and a second 120 gig I use for storage.
Can I disconnect the storage drive during the reinstall to remove the risk of data loss. Or will this effect the new XP ? I'm not expecting the programmes on there to still work, I just have about 70 gigs of professional pictures I don't want to loose.
C] Can I replace the c drive with a new blank one , and then add XP to that ,then plug the other drive back into it ?
