I'm trying to do a repair installation of Windows XP, it's been a while since my last one and the computer was recently infected by Vundo (I'm now malware-free thanks to one of the staff here... original thread). I initiate the repair from within Windows, it prepares the install and then reboots the PC as expected. but it gets as far as the Windows XP splash screen (with the animated silver "progress meter") before I get a BSOD with the following STOP error:
00000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I've come to understand that this means "inaccessible boot device". I've never had this problem during a reinstall before, so I was under the impression that it might be a leftover effect of the Vundo trojan (Vundo also disabled my system restore... sneaky little so-and-so).
my hard drive is SATA-connected to the motherboard; could it be simply that my driver was corrupted?
thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out!
