Here's one for the PRO's

  1. I was flashing my NEC DVD drive to newer firmware and restarted.

    When I did, got the blue screen with the usual 0x0000024 or whatever message and this:

    ntfs.sys - address F####### base at F#######, Datestamp #####eea.

    Okay? Now, i can't start in any safe mode whatsoever.

    I can't do the windows SP PRO disk start up into the reinstall windows. When I try, i press F6 to install my raid and then it goes into the reinstall. When i do that, it starts to go and then gives the blue screen again with the same above ntfs.sys message.

    I have also unpluged my DVD drive and retried all the above.

    Any ideas? I do have another computer here and internet access.

    Am I SOL on this? :knock:

    Try clearing the CMOS on the MB if that option exists on your MB(make sure your MB auto loads the older .bin file), leave the drive disconnected it might let you boot .Just remember to reset settings in CMOS .
