"A problem has been detected and Windows has been [bleep] down to prevent damage ...blah blah"
Technical information : *** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8A608268, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
So I restart and go to boot menu. I can't boot to last know good configuration, cant boot to safe mode with netoworking, cant boot to safe mode with command prompt, cant boot to safe mode. All results in the same BSOD.
So I decide ok I'll put in my WinXP CD (It's a DELL reinstalliation CD) and try to repair or run a CheckDisk. Now when I try to boot from CD it tells me ...
"selected boot device not available - strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility. I have checked the BIOS / setup screen and everything looks the same. It reads my HD and Devices, and the boot menu looks fine. I even tried removing all option from boot menu and leaving just onboard CDROM, but still said "selected boot device not available."
So frustrating! I have had a similiar problem before and DELL Phone support ruled it was my motherboard, which is bull. They sent a tech out and the guy said this isnt a hardware issue and changed something in the BIOS and it started working. But I cant see anything in the bios that is wrong.
I just want to save the data on my HD. I cant even do a parrallel installiation if my CDROM isnt reading the WinXP CD (Note the CD is good because another computer will boot from it). If only that would work then I could move past the BSOD problem. UGHHHHH>
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
