Hi everyone so i had decided to wipe my hard disk clean and install [dualboot]Vista and Linux on a half/half partition 500 gig SATA Hard drive. When installing vista(first) i get through almost the whole setup when during the "finishing Installation" step it restarts then does the Blue Screen of death with the following error: STOP 0x0000007e (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005,0xFFFFF8000185e251,0xFFFFF98001,0xFFFFF980012 FC830)
But its really no use because every time i try starting it again the Technical Information is different.
My specs are:
-500 Gig SATA hard drive
-4 gigs of RAM
-AMD Phenom 2 x64
-An ATI video card
I'm completely lost so any help is GREATLY appreciated.
Oh and i did take my RAM out and put it back in and i set my BIOS to the factory settings.
try a fresh install with Win7. get off vista all together. (funny but seriously, vista.?)
now, about your issue.
with your sata hdd, tell me about your motherboard configuration,
in which connections do you have your hdd connected and have you edited your booting configuration.?
just some simple questions to visualize your set-up.
Thanks i installed Win7 and it worked fine for some reason. Thanks a bunch
