Things were harmoniously working for for about 1-2 years as a dual boot OS system until 2 days ago. I have the grub loader setup to boot to Windows XP by default. When I attempted a normal boot-up to Windows on Saturday 9-1-2013 I repeatedly got the same blue screen of death message:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this
screen appears again, follow these steps:
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk fragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive
configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption,
then restart your computer.
***STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8AE1FEF0, 0xC0000102)
The PC would NOT reboot using the last known good Windows configuration, nor could it reboot into safe mode,
safe mode with networking, safe mode command line. The only saving grace is that I can still boot successfully
into the Ubuntu Linux OS. Another bit of information to share is the last time Windows was running it was shutdown
into Standby mode. I was later told that by my wife that it autonomously came out of Standby so she powered the
PC off late the night before the problem started to occur. I do NOT have a Windows XP installation CD to try and
repair XP with. You insightful feedback/instructions would be greatly appreciated towards fixing the problem.
