I got the minidump files zipped, using 7-zip with Hirem's, and have attached them to this post. I'm also trying to interpret the errors, and search for a fix. But, you may have more experience and can explain the best fix. Thanks again. Have a safe trip.
Also, somehow I'm not getting the 2000-0221 error any more. But, I remember that before I also didn't get the error, but when tested again, I did get the error. So, for now, the BIOS testing is clean; no errors.
And, I am able to restore BIOS DEFAULTS. For some reason it appears as if nothing has been changed, but, in fact, the defaults were loaded.
By the way, I'd just like to save all my data from the c: drive onto a new hdd (clone), and then reinstall windows xp sp3 Media Edition. How can I make a list of all my applications so that I can add them back after fresh windows install?
I've been trying to REPAIR the Windows XP SP3 installation with the original Windows XP installation CD, and I got a fatal error. I can't remember the error, but I'll write it down if it happens again.
While trying to fix things, I've managed to mess things up. I tried to REPAIR with the Windows XP Media Center installation disk. There was an error "fffff8ed", and when it rebooted, it went directly into the REPAIR session that had the fatal error. I can't get windows to boot now. Is there a way to fix this with Hiren's or some other method. I can't even boot into SAFE MODE; ". . . Windows XP Setup cannot run under Safemode. Setup will restart now."
It seems I've been kicked back from SP3, to SP2. And the only default OS from the dual boot menu, is Windows XP Professional, and not Media Center. Things are barely holding on. I just need a way to get all of my data and a list of the applications off of the c: drive, then I'll format the c: drive and reinstall Windows XP Media Center, then I'll need to upgrade to SP3 (SP2 first, then SP3), and install the windows updates, driver updates, and all my apps. Not easy. Any help to get me there is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Latest update. I was able to use Hiren's REGISTRY WIZARD to rollback the last few registries. So, I can load my Windows XP SP3 Media Center, but I need to act fast to recover data and apps, etc; then reinstall Windows. Thanks.
