Alright. So I got this 0x000007e error BSOD stopping me from booting up. Problem is that it also has this error when i try to boot from my windows 7 CD. It also has this error when I launch startup repair. On top of that when i press f8 to try to go to advanced boot options it doesn't take me there. It takes me to a blue screen of boot device lists (IDE DVD-rom, SATA, CD-ROM). I have tried booting from all of these in every permutation with my windows 7 DVD rom. I went to BIOS to try and boot from CD, same deal. The one time I got to advanced options (I don't know how, it is flabbergasting) I tried booting to safe mode and got BSOD again. Basically I am stuck and can't get anywhere. Anytime I try to boot i get BSOD restart, and when I press f8 it just takes me to boot device list. I would be losing my mind right now if I didn't have this splashgate from my motherboard I can go onto the net and try to troubleshoot from. Windows did not update last night to my knowledge. The only thing I had installed was a game from Steam. I had over 100gb space left on my HD. Is my HD dead, is some memory dead? I can't even boot from a CD to test, so I am going insane.
