XP 7 Dual Boot problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

                    I have a Toshiba satellite L450D laptop (AMD Sempron SI-42 – 2.GHz and 3 GB RAM DDR2) which up until recently was running a dual boot of Windows XP Pro SP3 (x86) and Windows 7 Home Premium (x64). It was all running fine until I flashed my BIOS, (which was successful) and neither version of Windows would start. I got to Windows boot manager and then upon selecting an OS it would come up with Windows would not start. I read somewhere that the BIOS update may have changed the addresses of something (I’m not too sure about this bit) and so performed a fresh install of Windows 7. This worked perfectly, Windows 7 runs fine, and I am still getting to Windows Boot Manager upon start-up. When I select Windows 7 it boots fine and if I select XP the same thing happens as before – Windows could not start. I then proceeded to re-install XP, and the setup loads up until the final loading message (setup is starting Windows I think) and then I get a blue screen with the following message:

    “A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the 1<sup>st</sup> time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps. Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.  Technical Information: ***STOP: 0x000000713 (0xF78D2524, 0xc00000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)”

    I have run CHKDSK /F from a Windows 7 CMD and this returned no errors although it did check the C drive??

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am at a complete loss for this one. Many thanks in advance

    Alex.
