|I have a Dell Optiplex (GX1) running Windows 2000 Pro. I was trying to shut down |
and it wasn't acting right. I was in a hurry and just turned off the PC. (hangs head in shame) When I turned it on a few hours later I got the BSD with Stop
Error 0x0000007B (0xC0000032) Inaccessible_Boot_Device. From reading online I tried to set it back to Last Good Configuration and the same stop error screen
came up. I also tried to boot into Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Command Prompt (so I could run
chkdsk) but all I got was a scroll of many lines which started "multidisk()...drivers..." then the same stop error screen came up again. I don't have an Emergency Boot Disk, only the Dell disks that came with the PC.
Can you help me? Can I just install a new hard drive for now and then connect to the old drive to copy the data from it? If
yes, I will be loading XP onto the new drive. Would that be a problem with getting the info off the Win2000 drive?
Thank you in advance!
