|thanks for your reply|
i have pressed f6, and it doesnt give me any options it says windows is loading files then goes to roxio restore only, and gives me restore points which I have tried all of, and it just goes back to error again
I have tried to reinstall windows by using DVD drive, and windows xp disk, which tries to boot up, and then gives me a BSOD STOP error
I am using an External drive. I boot off the Windows XP disc (SP3) and after loading all setup files, I receive a Blue Screen with the following message:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to you computer. If this is the first time you've 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.
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7A22524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
