Hi, Today my friends computer started freaking out real bad, he is currently running Windows XP Media Center edition. Info: Booting up (Usual windows, Last working mode and safe mode) Message at the bluescreen: Stop 0x00000024 Happends every time we try to boot up, so we cant go anywhere. Tried to boot up with 3 Windows XP cds now, same message wich is: 0X7B ( 0X00000007B ) I've read about it and found the solutions and know that its because of a harddrive driver failure or HDD failure. However, it requires you to boot up in windows for it to even be fixed. Is there any way to fix this without booting up in Windows? Seing as we are completely stuck, it wont let us into windows, or repair, or reinstallation of Windows itself. I've heard about the extra Harddrive usage, but i dont have any extra harddrives. Thanks for the help.
