Hi,

I have a built PC, Mobo Gigabyte X58A-UD3R, Windows 7 SP1.

When I boot up i get to the logo and then I get a very quick BSOD, but i managed to capture the BSOD, see attachment.I get a re

After the BSOD I get a restart which then takes me to launch start up repair. I select the repair option and it states that it can't repair the problem, I click finish.

Safe Mode doesn't work, computer shuts off for about 3 seconds and then restarts, no safe mode.

I inserted my Win 7 disk and select Repair you computer, then I select "Startup Repair". I do notice the command prompt is showing
x as the drive it's checking. I think my C drive might be corrupted. Anyway, it says the repairs were successful and to restart computer. I restart and it all starts again.

Thanks in advance!!!

Marty

Sorry, not a very good link.

See this tutorial by theog on How to Copy & Paste in Recovery Console on Windows 7 or Vista for a neat trick to use to allow you to Copy & Paste from the Recovery Console to save files and folders.

Use it to copy the last 4 dumps in C:\Windows\minidump to a flash drive.
Zip those dumps into a single zip and upload here so I can take a look at them.

I tried your suggestion but when i got to step 6&7, it shows my c drive as empty and it says its in reserve or preserve?

I can get into safe mode, so I attached a file from SF Diagnostic Tool i managed to capture while is safe mode.

Let me know if this helps.

BlueScreenView shows 1394ohci.sys and Wdf01000.sys as the cause. I can't run debug as I'm at work, not home.

1394ohci.sys is the Firewire (1394) driver. You might want to try disabling it in Device Manager, see if that helps.

See here: How to Disable a Service or Device that Prevents Windows from Booting

If that helps and you can boot then need to find a different driver.

Ztruker,

I got my computer to boot up by unplugging my iLok dongle from a USB slot. I've been in correspondence with the iLok techs, they sent me drivers, but nothing helped, it still crashes on my computer. I tried to install the iLok on one of my other Win7 computers and it loaded fine, without incident.

So, when the dongle is plugged into my computer, BSOD...unplugged and all is fine.

Is there anyway to determine where the conflict is coming from?

I did attach the latest dmp files.

PS: I disabled my Firewire driver, but still no luck.

Thanks for your help.

Marty

The latest dump is for iLokDrvr.sys. That's about all I can tell you.

What else is connected to your computer? Any other USB devices? What about 9nternal expansion cards?

I do have a wireless router plugged in and a couple other peripheral items. I'll unplug them. I don't have any other expansion cards, video is the only other card.

Try running System File Checker (SFC), see if that finds and fixes any system file problems.

Click Start, type command. Right click on Command Prompt at the top and select Run as Administrator.
Type sfc /scannow and press Enter
Let it run to completion.

Reboot and see if the problem is fixed.

If that doesn't help then I would suggest doing a Repair Install. You should backup your data now before doing much else. A Repair Install should not touch your data or most installed software but stuff happens so it's best to be safe.

As for the Repair Install, see here: How to Do a Repair Install to Fix Windows 7

Also tells you where you can download a legal copy of Windows 7 if needed.
