I've read the list of BSOD Erroc Codes and found this problem. I am trying to fix my friend's hard drive. At first he couldn't boot in Windows (NT 2000) so I used my hard drive and looked at boot.ini in my friends hard drive ( I don't have windows NT 2000 nore installation disk or any type of boot disk). So I checked hte boot.ini and it was not normal so I changed it to the normal settings (searched through internet). So now I start up the computer and it give me this BSOD Error, 0000007B Inaccessable_Boot_Device. So I read the list of erroc codes and from what I learn, it's that since the hard drive is used more my computer, the "device driver that the computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process". So I could go back to his house to check if thats the problem, but to save me some time, are there any other solutions I could try before sending it back? Thanks in advanced.

It might be a good idea to define normal....you said you checked and it was not, then you made the boot.ini file "normal" and now it says inaccesible boot device.....

The fact that you changed is boot.ini based on your perception of it not being normal concerns me, especially since very few things alter the boot.ini file.

I would like to know first why he could not boot with his harddrive--what occured?

Odds are you have not made the situatin better, but compounded the problem

naa i the problem got fixed, i uesd my othre hard drive and scanned for virus, got a couple and removed them, i was in a rush so i couldnt explain by normal for the boot.ini, wen i went to check it, the file had a whole bunch of scrammbled letters, so im guessing it was either the virus that caused or maybe my friends dad installed something, i dunno, but its all good now.
